  1. Followed 8 steps; everything works except task manager

    Major malware attack (twice); mcaffe. avg and msoft no help
    Major challenge: constant ie redirecting and unable to open task manager; virus protection panic program mimicry (ex. PC Defender, etc)

    Used system restoration
    Googled to your site
    Followed 8 step program; cleaned up pc and appeared sober until step 8

    ie 7 browser still redirecting and task manager still won't open
    hope the logs give you a direction for me or i'll have to resort to contacting msoft tech again
    using avast and windows defender, but not married to either
    witholding use of firefox until this gets cleaned up
    logs attached; appreciate all the help so faith is you will be able to help me finish the restoration

    Additional note: couldn't get hijak to clear host file; re: malware created new host file and lableled my original with "old" extension. I reversed what was done and now no more redirects
