    Boot into safe mode. See how HERE.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) 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).


    Close task manager.

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

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Ins3DT] D:\INSTALL4\INS3DT.EXE

    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{57F85FE7-7631-4F20-A197-408F96BA21B3}: NameServer = Only fix this entry, if it doesn`t belong to your ISP.

    O18 - Protocol: msnim - {828030A1-22C1-4009-854F-8E305202313F} - "C:\PROGRA~1\MSNMES~1\msgrapp.dll" (file missing)

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Locate and delete the following bold file(if there).


    Reboot into normal mode and turn system restore back on.

    I see that you have installed AVG antivirus. You should also install a firewall programme, such as Zonealarm free. You can get it HERE.

    In that case, go ahead and let HJT fix it. If your internet then doesn`t work just restore that entry by doing the following.

    Run HJT and click on the config button. Click on the Backups button. Tick the little box next to the entry you wish to restore and click on the restore button.

    Reboot your computer.

    Regards Howard :)

    You should`ve posted this in the thread you already had running, rather than opening a new thread.

    Your HJT log Is clean.

    Regards Howard :)

    Edit: I have merged this thread with your existing one.
