  1. Ok well I had a malware thing it was something along the lines of "IE destroyer" or something. It seems to be fixed now (I followed all the suggested steps)
    the symptoms were thatwhenever I tried to use IE it wald try to get me to install antivirus programs with Icons flashing in the taskbar saying I had a virus.

    the antirookit scan didnt find anything and neither did the avg anti spyware

    I think its all ok now but Ill incude the logs for completion and just in case you spot somthing else

    thank you for your help

    Hi anthony85,

    Im going over your log but I have to head out. In the meantime,

    Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop.

    • Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
    • At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
    • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
    • Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
    • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
    • Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
    • When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to a convenient location. The log can also be found here: C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\log-date.txt
    • Please post contents of that file in your next reply.
