Was told to post over here from the XP Forum: superty12 TechSpot Booster If you found malware, go post in the dedicated virus forum. You can post your logs there. They will not drop you. --------------------------------------------- Malware? I should preface this by stating my computer recovered from a hard crash and now I can't get explorer.exe to run therefore have a blank desktop except for wallpaper. I can move around through task manager and connect to the internet. Don't see explorer.exe running in processes.I typed in explorer and explorer.exe (both upper and lower case) and sometimes I see a flash of the taskbar at the bottom. Even tried clicking on the start button but nothing. Ran malware bytes yesterday and this came up... C:\WINDOWS\explorer1.exe (Trojan.Agent) > No Action Taken C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe (Heuristics.Reserved.Word.Exploit)> No Action Taken Tried to remove but seems can't remove explorer.exe or even replace it which I was trying to so thus the explorer1.exe (from another machine). Nothing from Adaware, Spybot, Malware rerun, House call on line scan, Kapersky TTDS Killer, Mcafee Root Kit, Mcafee Portable AV. This is an OEM machine so aren't reinstall files present? Can I offload and use them? False positive's you think from Malware Bytes? Also ran combofix if you would like to see log. Thanks!
