    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

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


    Post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.


    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    I`m sorry, but I cannot open a .doc file due to the risk of viruses.

    Please post a fresh HJt log as either a .log file or a .txt file.

    Regards Howard :)

    No, I wasn`t joking. .doc files can carry viruses, so there`s no way I`ll ever open one. The instructions quite clearly say not to use .doc files.

    You might want to copy and paste these instructions into a notepad file. Then you can have the file open in safe mode, so you can follow the instructions easier.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE.

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how HERE.

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.


    Open your task manager, by holding down the ctrl and alt keys and pressing the delete key.

    Click on the processes tab and end process for(if there).

    Ooze info dupe.exe

    Close task manager.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open(except notepad). 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)

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Eqmode] C:\DOCUME~1\user\APPLIC~1\IDLEBI~1\Ooze info dupe.exe

    O9 - Extra button: PartyPoker.com - {B7FE5D70-9AA2-40F1-9C6B-12A255F085E1} - C:\Program Files\PartyGaming\PartyPoker\RunApp.exe (file missing)

    O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: PartyPoker.com - {B7FE5D70-9AA2-40F1-9C6B-12A255F085E1} - C:\Program Files\PartyGaming\PartyPoker\RunApp.exe (file missing)

    O16 - DPF: {69EF49E5-FE46-4B92-B5FA-2193AB7A6B8A} (GameLauncher Control) - http://www.acclaim.com/cabs/acclaim_v4.cab

    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{5EE548B6-7A0B-4056-B0C4-72A32D23AF16}: Domain = qld.bigpond.net.au

    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{DDEC7539-C661-4E85-A118-104992402904}: NameServer = 10.0.0.138

    Only fix the above 017 entries if they don`t belong to your ISP or you don`t know the domain.

    Fix all 018 protocol entries from logitech. They are not needed and won`t affect your equipment.

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Locate and delete the following bold files and/or directories(if there).

    C:\DOCUME~1\user\APPLIC~1\IDLEBI~1\Ooze info dupe.exe

    Reboot into normal mode, turn system restore back on and rehide your protected OS files.

    Post a fresh HJT log and an AVG Antispyware log.

    Regards Howard :)
