  1. Have a popup issue with systemdocotr or scandoctor (or along those lines...), and a few other popups also. I've attached my HijackThis log file if someone could please check?

    Much appreciated :)

    You may wish to copy and paste these instructions on notepad for easier reference later.

    Boot into safe mode under your normal user name. See how HERE

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

    Go to start > run and type services.msc. Press the enter key.
    Search for the following services. Double click to select stop if they are running. Set the startup type to disabled. Click apply/ok for each service you disable.


    Go to start > Control Panel > Add and Remove Programs.
    Remove anything related to the following:


    After that, run HijackThis and fix the following entries, if found (do this by placing a tick in the check boxes beside these entries and clicking "Fix checked"):

    O23 - Service: DomainService - - C:\WINDOWS\system32\ahiuaffd.exe

    Close HJT.

    Navigate in Windows Explorer and delete the following files and folders in bold.


    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Thereafter, please post fresh HJT, ComboFix and AVG Antispyware logs from normal mode as attachments into this thread.

    Your friendly momok =)

    you need to update 'hijack this ' to the 'v_2' version in addition to this you also need to rename 'hijack this' to 'analyse this' or something similar and place it within its own folder in programme files. path should read: C/prog files/hijackthis/analysethis v_2.exe
