  1. Hey guys, I'm in need of serious help. I've attached my HJT log. Some background info: just contracted the dreaded Antivermins thing (with the annoying System Alert bubble in the taskbar), I've already got Spybot S&D (but that hasn't cured much)... and I'm basically a n00b at all this.

    HELP~!

    That`s looking much better.

    Download the Pocket Killbox programme from HERE. Extract it but don`t run it yet.


    According to your AVG Antispyware log, all the entries say ignored. Are you sure you followed the instructions for AVG Antispyware properly? Go back to the instructions and make sure AVG Antispyware is set to quarantine objects not ignore them.

    We need to temporarily disable Spybot`s teatimer protection.

    1. Run Spybot-S&D in Advanced Mode.
    2. If it is not already set to do this Go to the Mode menu select "Advanced Mode"
    3. On the left hand side, Click on Tools
    4. Then click on the Resident Icon in the List
    5. Uncheck "Resident TeaTimer" and OK any prompts.
    6. Restart your computer.

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

    SystemDoctor 2006 Free
    Video ActiveX Object
    SpyNoMore

    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).

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

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

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

    C:\Program Files\SpyNoMore<Delete the entire folder.
    C:\Program Files\SystemDoctor 2006 Free<Delete the entire folder.
    ALCMTR.EXE<Search your system for this file and delete all instances found.

    Click start/run and type regedit into the runbox and press the enter key. Click file/export and save a copy of your registry to where ever you want. Then, navigate to the following key and in the righthand pane delete it.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Internet Explorer Security Plugin 2006

    Close regedit.

    Run the killbox.exe file. When it loads type the full path to the file you would like to delete in the field and check the delete file on reboot button. press the Delete File button (looks like a red circle with a white X). It will prompt you to reboot, select no until you have finished inputting the files you want to delete, only then allow it to reboot and hopefully your files will now be deleted. If your computer doesn`t automatically restart, restart it manually.

    This is the filepath you need to enter into killbox.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\vwfps.dll

    Once your system has rebooted, turn system restore back on and rehide your protected OS files.

    Post a fresh HJT log as well as a fresh AVG Antispyware log and let me know how your system is running.


    Regards Howard :)

    The logs are attached. :)
