    Your system is infected with several nasties.

    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.

    Delete all files in AVG Antispyware quarantine.

    Download Vundofix from HERE.

    Double click the Vundofix.exe to run it.

    Right click in the vundofix window and click add files.

    Enter the full file path/s to the files you want Vundofix to delete and click the add files button, followed by the close window button. Click the remove vundo button and let Vundofix do it`s stuff.

    This is the filepath you need to enter into Vundofix.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\mpubervb.dll

    Post a fresh HJT log after doing the above.

    Regards Howard :)

    Your HJT log is now clean.

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

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {E03C740E-BB24-4d3c-B92A-6F84DE1DD99C} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\mpubervb.dll (file missing)

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    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.

    Reboot your system.

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

    Regards Howard :)
