    Great Job!

    Run HJT Select an remove the below
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)

    Ok the logs of MBAM and SAS contain removed malware. You should UPDATE and run both again. Sometimes other Malware is unmasked on the first run that was not even seen.

    So run both again to confirm clean.

    Attach logs.

    Very good job!

    Does the computer have any issues now. Running good?

    Thread closing-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Schedule a full Norton Virus scan

    Run CCleaner again twice or more on Cleanup temps, then on left click Registry then Scan for issues also repeat till clean.

    D/L install and run ATF-Cleaner clear all except passwords in all browsers you have. Run repeatedly until no more found.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The issues could possibly befound is in System Restore so do the below

    Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-Disk- System Restore and create a new Restore point. Name it "After cleanup at TechSpot".

    Then Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-Disk Cleanup
    Click OK to accept C:
    Select all Boxes
    Then click More Options
    Here click System Restore and OK to "Are you sure" and the OK to Run.

    As this runs it clears all but the most recent Restore Point but it does one other thing that can contain infested files and a huge amount of disk space.

    It clears what is known as Shadow copies which are used by specialized back up programs.

    This is if you have the Volume Shadow Copy running which is the default.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Every 2 weeks or so run mbam and sas until clean They take a while so leave scanning while you are sleeping working or watching TV. If not done under the gun they can be schedules not to interfere with computer time.

    If they find something they can not clean then get back to us.

    Additionally run CCleaner.

    I have been using ThreatFire for more than a year, it just went from ver 3 to ver 4.

    It was designed to co-exist with other Virus scanners.

    Additionally it uses totally different process to protect. While conventional Virus scanners work from definitions ThreatFire works on recognizing Virus/Malware activity. It's like looking at it with 2 sets of eyes and from a different angle.

    Look at http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

    Run SpyBot ocassionally and use the Immunize function.

    Install Hostman and allow it to disable DNS Client and select all 4 Host files and the Update
    Hostman http://www.abelhadigital.com/2008/07...-released.html

    A Disk scan and Defrag are in order.
