My Friend's Hijack this log

  1. My friend keeps getting tons of popups on his system, and he was wondering if he has viruses/malware. He sent me his hijackthis log... but I'm no good at interpreting them.

    Whoa, that HJT log looks nasty. Just look at this:
    "Hijacked Internet access by WebHancer"

    He should follow Howard's instructions. :D

    That system is absolutely riddled with malware.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Also, let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :)

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    The download link for Combofix is in step12 of the instructions.

    All entries in your AVG Antispyware log say "Ignored". That`s because you didn`t tell AVG Antispyware to quarantine the results as per the instructions. See HERE for a pictorial guide.

    I have therefore, removed your logfiles as they`re not of any use. Please follow all the instructions from step12 through step13 and post the requested logfiles.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
