  1. My darling husband decided to open up some stuff on his Myspace he had no clue about and System Alert apparently hitched a ride w/ it.

    I followed all the steps posted here. And they all found quite a bit of stuff. I also did the auto run program as well. Thanks in advance. Hopefully you can help calm some of my paranoia about this...

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    LOG FILES MUST BE POSTED AS ATTACHMENTS AND NOT COPY AND PASTED.

    Please see this thread HERE for instructions on how to post log files as attachments.

    Download the Autoruns programme from HERE. When the programme runs, click options and make sure the "Hide Microsoft Entries" is ticked. Click the file menu and select refresh. Click the save icon and save the Autoruns log to wherever you want.

    Attach the Autoruns log here as well as the HJT and AVG Antispyware log.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Your HJT log is now clean.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE.

    Now, turn system restore back on. This will have deleted all your old restore points and any nasties that are in them. It will also have created a new, clean restore point.

    If you have any further virus/spyware problems, please post in this thread.

    Regards Howard :)
