    Go to add remove programmes in your control panel and uninstall anything to do with(if there).

    AdwareRemover2007
    Error Repair Professional

    Close control panel.

    We need to temporarily disable Spybot search & Destroy`s tea time, as it may interfere with any fix we are trying to run.

    Disable Spybot's TeaTimer. This is a two step process.
    First:
    - Right click Spybot in the System Tray (looks like a calendar with a padlock symbol)
    - Choose Exit Spybot S&D Resident
    Second:
    - Open Spybot S&D
    - Click Mode, check Advanced Mode
    - Go To Left Panel, Click Tools, then also in left panel, click Resident
    - If your firewall raises a question, say OK
    - Uncheck the box labeled Resident Tea-Timer and OK any prompts.
    - Use File, Exit to terminate Spybot
    - Reboot your machine for the changes to take effect.

    Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the code box below into it:
    NOTE* make sure to only highlight and copy what is inside the quote box nothing out side of it.
    Also ..

    Pay particular attention to this :-

    Make sure the word File:: is on the first line of the text file you save (no blank line above it, & no space in front of it)
    Code:

    Save this as CFScript.txt

    Then drag the CFScript.txt into ComboFix.exe as you see in the screenshot below.

    This will start ComboFix again. After reboot, (in case it asks to reboot), post the contents of Combofix.txt in your next reply together with a fresh HJT log.

    Regards Howard :)

    Where did you put the Combofix programme when you downloaded it.

    You must know where it is as you`ve already run it once.

    You really seem to have major problems following instructions don`t you?

    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).

    O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {BA52B914-B692-46c4-B683-905236F6F655} - (no file)

    O8 - Extra context menu item: &Search -

    O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {CD67F990-D8E9-11d2-98FE-00C0F0318AFE} - (no file)

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT and reboot your computer.

    Delete the following folder.

    C:\qoobox

    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 :)

    OK, last step completed. Did you want to see a HJT log or anything?

    ITs seems to be running better. However, theirs still a frame glitche when loading the main page. Plus my windows registry repair pro and sound is still missing, which of course may be a seperate issue.

    As far as I`m aware, your system is now clean.

    I suggest reinstalling your windows registry repair pro and your sound drivers.

    OK, Thankyou for your help. You can lock'er up if you wish.

    NOTE: About the ComboFix ICON. This is because when Installing I Hit the RUN button instead, of the SAVE button. Thats why there was no Icon on my Desktop. Good day Mate:chef:
