    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your system has at least one nasty trojan infection.

    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.

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

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Download the Pocket Killbox programme from HERE. Extract it but don`t run it yet.

    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.

    Delete all files in C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\YPSR\Quarantine.

    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.

    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) - >æ - (no file)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {57E218E6-5A80-4f0c-AB25-83598F25D7E9} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\tmp6.tmp.dll (file missing)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - =æ - (no file)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - ¨æ - (no file)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - Ð=æ - (no file)

    O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-18\..\Run: [IESet] IExplorer.dll .dbt (User 'SYSTEM')

    O4 - HKUS\.DEFAULT\..\Run: [IESet] IExplorer.dll .dbt (User 'Default user')

    O16 - DPF: {2D2BEE6E-3C9A-4D58-B9EC-458EDB28D0F6} - http://www.drivecleaner.com/.freeware/installdrivecleanerstart.cab

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Run the killbox.exe file. When it loads type the full path to the file you would like to delete in the field and check the delete file on reboot button. press the Delete File button (looks like a red circle with a white X). It will prompt you to reboot, select no until you have finished inputting the files you want to delete, only then allow it to reboot and hopefully your files will now be deleted. If your computer doesn`t automatically restart, restart it manually.

    This is the filepath you need to enter into killbox.

    C:\windows\system32\IExplorer.dll .dbt

    Once your system has rebooted, rehide your protected OS files.

    Post a fresh HJT log.

    Regards Howard :)

    Your HJT log is now clean.

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

    Now, turn system restore back on. This will have deleted all your old restore points and any nasties that are in them. It will also have created a new, clean restore point.

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

    Regards Howard :)
