Now it has frozen on the Welcome screen.. what is going on?
Shut down computer waited on minute then started up.
Computer booted, went to run broni.com before I could run it, the computer went blue screen and restarted I've got it in safe mode now.
Try to restart it again.
If normal mode will get stuck, try safe mode.
please wait combofix is preparing to run.
a red bar and blue bar load up across the screen, don't have time to read what it says, now it's sitting with the please wait.
Oh, well before you said be patient, i stopped it, then got fresh combofix.exe ran as admin, it sat the affiliated website thing and I accepted terms, it asked about back up I agreed, the bars ran, it says please wait combofix is preparing to run. attempting to create a new system restore point now it's just sitting, how long do I need to be patient?
I can't tell you, because it depends on severity of infection. Wait 10-15 minutes and let me know, if it progresses in any way.
I've got nothing going on... still the same screen.
OK. We have to establish one important rule.
You don't do anything, but only what I tell you to do.
...and no rush. When fighting serious infection, things can't be rushed, or worse things may happen.
Delete your Combofix file. Download fresh one, but rename combofix.exe to broni.com BEFORE saving it to the desktop.
Run rKill first, then broni.com
It all can be done in Safe Mode with Networking.
It's doing... nothing... at all... and it has sat for a long time now.
Delete your GMER file. Download fresh one, run it and post new log.
Do you have Vista DVD?
I have a DVD that is the install DVD for vista if that's what you're asking. I think that's what it is...
What is the exact name of that DVD?
What about fresh GMER log?
It's the vista install disk.
I tried to run GMER again, and it quit unexpectedly the first time, then the second time before it opened, I got blue screen and computer shut down.
If for some reason GMER refuses to run, try again.
If it still fails, try to UN-check "Devices" in right pane.
If still no joy, try to run it from Safe Mode.
If still a problem, still in Safe mode, run it with only "Sections" checked.
Okay, It's been in safe mode, I HAVE to be in safe mode for my computer to function.
GMER Blue screens me every time now, I'm going to download a fresh one again and undo devices, and run it, if it stops, I'm not running it again, unless you insist.
So in case you didn't know, I'm slightly smarter than the average joe with computers, after downloading the new one, I started it, but before running the scan I use taskmanager to end anything possible including explorer.exe all I see now is the scan running... and I have to say it's going faster than the first time.
It's done scanning, do I hit save now?
Yes and post the log.
Merry Christmas, this probably the last you'll hear from me tonight...
GMER log looks good
See, if broni.com will run now.
Run rKill first.
I will try... but it probably won't...
You won't know until you try...
