    I also had a quick question...

    Now that I have removed the virus and I have all of these programs, I was wondering what are the best programs to keep and which virus protection should i be running on a regular basis. As virus software i ran nod32 but it allowed me to get the virus. I then purchased pctools spyware doctor. I wanted to know what the best programs to keep my system protected from future attacks. My friend is also looking to purchase virus protection, so any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    Regarding your question about safety programs, is it okay if we wait until the computer is clean?
    Because there is apparently still some infection on it.

    Please download Combofix from:

    And save to the desktop.

    Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the quotebox below into it:

    Save this as:

    Refering to the picture above, drag CFScript into ComboFix.exe

    Then attach fresh combofix log, along with new hijackthis log.
