    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

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

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


    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    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.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial56.html

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial61.html

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial62.html

    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).

    EvID4226Patch.exe

    Close task manager.


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

    Active Key Logger

    Close control panel.

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

    D:\Program Files\Active Key Logger<Delete the entire folder.

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Synacast\SynaLive\EvID4226Patch.exe

    D:\Programme\nuevo Emule\Incoming\zip rar prog etc\Web Site Password Cracker 40.zip

    Reboot into normal mode, turn system restore back on and rehide your protected OS files.

    Run the Ccleaner programme as per the instructions in this thread HERE.

    Let me know how your system is running.

    Regards Howard :)
