  1. I've run SS&D, Adaware, a bunch of Registry fixers I've had for a while, and I keep having problems with a few files.

    Any help is appreciated!

    You guys are doing a great thing here by helping others, thanks much.

    First, you don't have any AV software or firewall programs active. These are the main things that are gonna get rid of the virus for you.. reg fixers and spy/adware removers are only temporary fixits.

    Download AVG antivirus (free) and either Sunbelt Kerio or Zonealarm Free (firewalls)

    You will also need to go to windows update and install the latest fixes to your system. This will ensure any vunrebilities are patched up inside the windows software.

    Follow these instructions. it will help you in removing them.

    then post back a fresh HJT log after doing so.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    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.

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how here.>

    Click on the fix checked button.

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


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

    Post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs and let me know how your system is running.
