    Hi tomika and welcome to TechSpot.:wave:

    Your pc is infected but you have posted in the wrong forum.

    You need to have a read of this - If your system is infected. Read this before deciding whether to CLEAN or REFORMAT.

    Then if you should wish to proceed with cleaning your system you need to go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, Combofix, and AVG Antispyware logs as ATTACHMENTS into a new thread in the Security and the Web forum, only after doing the above.
    We also need to know the result of Panda Antirootkit.

    Hry Rik,

    Thanks for the instructuins, I followed the steps from Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions.
    Finally ended up -after running Spyware remover- in a startup loop! it starts normally and I have to choose the user and it says "Loading Your settings..." tha imidiately says that "Saving Your settings and shuting down"!
    No matter what I do, run safe mode with all the possibilities never pass this stage! Please help me! I cannot even get in anymore!

    I would be greatfull if somebody can help me!

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    I`m sorry to hear you`re having so many problems.

    Try doing a Windows repair as per this thread HERE.

    See if that helps.

    I have already moved this thread to our Security forum, so there`s no need to open a new thread.

    Please post a fresh HJT log as per these instructions.

    Regards Howard :)

    Your HJT log contains a bogus programme.

    You might want to copy and paste these instructions into a notepad file. Then you can have the file open in safe mode, so you can follow the instructions easier.

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how HERE.

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.

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

    Ad-Ware Pro

    Close control panel.

    Open your task manager, by holding down the ctrl and alt keys and pressing the delete key.

    Click on the processes tab and end process for(if there).

    Ad-Ware Pro.exe

    Close task manager.

    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).

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {3A2224A0-B114-4491-9305-FD0E4B55FA1E} - (no file)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [AdwareProMFC] C:\Program Files\Ad-Ware Pro\Ad-Ware Pro.exe

    O16 - DPF: {F127B9BA-89EA-4B04-9C67-2074A9DF61FD} (Photo Upload Plugin Class) - http://cvs.pnimedia.com/upload/activex/v2_0_0_9/PCAXSetupv2.0.0.9.cab?

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Locate and delete the following bold files and/or folders(if there).

    C:\Program Files\Ad-Ware Pro

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Download combofix.exe. Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts. A window will open with a warning. Type "1" (and Enter) to start the fix. When the scan completes it will open a text window. Please attach that log back here together with a fresh HJT log. Caution - do not touch your mouse/keyboard until the scan has completed. The scan will temporarily disable your desktop, and if interrupted may leave your desktop disabled. If this occurs, please reboot to restore the desktop.

    Combofix will automatically save the log file to C:\combofix.txt

    Post the Combofix log as well as a fresh HJT log.

    Regards Howard :)

    I can`t see anything nasty in your log files.

    I think your problems are probably caused by corruption, rather than malware.

    Since you`ve already tried a Windows repair and it hasn`t solved your problems, I suggest you backup your important data and reformat. :(

    Regards Howard :)
