I'm Dying -- Spyware Infections

By Perrako

  1. Recently, I made a mistake -- I downloaded Keygens. It was a lapse in judgement, I know. Anyway, now I've got spyware up the metaphorical wazoo. My HJT log is attached, and help would be loved.

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

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,AutoConfigURL = http://localhost:9100/proxy.pac

    R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

    F2 - REG:system.ini: UserInit=userinit.exe

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Download and install an antivirus programme and a firewall.

    AVG free and Zonealarm free are both very good.

    You can get them HERE and HERE.

    Do a full system scan with AVG after you`ve run the AVG updates.

    Regards Howard :)

    P.s Don`t go downloading anymore keygens. You`re much better off just buying the legit software in the first place. Techspot does not condone any form of piracy.
