Well glad that i finally found a board that knows what theyre doing. It seems like im following the trend for infected computers, because as of yesterday my google searches have been bad. Its probably from what i thought was a driver for my sound card. Anyways the sound card is fine now, but my computer is obviously infected/hacked. Symptoms Links lead to other links, plus i cant access sites like Symantec or Mcafee, the sites on your 8 steps to clean are also blocked, as in unable to visit at all. Other sites like yahoo and cnet are okay, as long as i type the address in the search bar manually. Restore points are gone, cant create and cant go back to a previous point. Ive been able to run your programs, delete the found files (adware, worms, trojans...). Then the links work fine and im able to visit Symantec and sites like that. But as soon as i turn off the computer/restart it, the problems are back. Ive cleaned the computer twice, but each restart brings the problems back. ------------------------------ Thankfully i was able to download the programs to a flash drive from another computer and did like you guys said in the guide. Anyways here are the attached logs.
