    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above. Don`t forget to rename HijackThis.exe.

    Also, let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :)

    Please attach an AVG Antispyware log into your next reply.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open. Click the scan button. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)

    O20 - AppInit_DLLs:

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT and reboot your system.

    Post a fresh HJT log and the AVG Antispyware log.

    Regards Howard :)

    You still haven`t attached an AVG Antispyware log. Please do so.

    That`s no problem mate, I just needed to see an AVG Antispyware log to make sure your system is clean and it is.

    Your last HJT log was also clean.

    If you have any further virus/spyware problems, please post in this thread.

    Regards Howard :)
