    This may need to go in a different thread, but is there any way to tell if the winsock on my computer was damaged?

    MBAB did not handle all that it found until the computer restart.

    Scan with HJT. Tick & Fix the following item. Restart computer.
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [winclock] "C:\Documents and Settings\Mark Agor\Application Data\Google\jxzub5410451.exe" 2
      > [URL=""]malware reference[/URL]
    Delete files appearing in code box (MBAM may have handled).
    C:\Documents and Settings\Mark Agor\Application Data\Google\[B]ptnptn.dll [/B](Trojan.FakeAlert) -> Delete on reboot.
    C:\Documents and Settings\Mark Agor\Application Data\Google\[B]jxzub5410451.exe[/B] (Trojan.FakeAlert) -> Delete on reboot.

    Rescan with MBAB followed by SAS. Repeat until clean or something that cannot be cleaned.

    HJT scan informs what has not been handled (computer restart before HJT scan)

    If symptoms remain, post new logs and describe conditions.
