    1. Update your Java version here: http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp

    Note 1: UNCHECK any pre-checked toolbar and/or software offered with the Java update. The pre-checked toolbars/software are not part of the Java update.

    Note 2: The Java Quick Starter (JQS.exe) adds a service to improve the initial startup time of Java applets and applications. If you don't want to run another extra service, go to Start > Control Panel > Java > Advanced > Miscellaneous and uncheck the box for Java Quick Starter. Click OK and restart your computer.

    2. Now, we need to remove old Java version and its remnants...

    Download JavaRa to your desktop and unzip it.
    • Run JavaRa.exe (Vista users! Right click on JavaRa.exe, click Run As Administrator), pick the language of your choice and click Select. Then click Remove Older Versions.
    • Accept any prompts.
    • Do NOT post JavaRa log.

    =================================

    We have one corrupted registry key.

    Following steps involve registry editing. Please create new restore point before proceeding!!!
    How to:
    XP - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/948247
    Vista and Seven - http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/wind...tore-point-for-windows-vistas-system-restore/


    Download Seven.zip file from here: http://www.smartestcomputing.us.com/files/download/9-registry-network-keys/
    Unzip the file.
    You'll find several files inside.
    Double click on mpssvc.reg file and confirm the prompt.
    Restart computer.
    Post new FSS log.

    Do I have to do anything with the following files found by ESetScan?

    C:\Qoobox\Quarantine\C\Users\maaldridge\AppData\Local\VS Revo Group\yzxxvcqk.dll.vir Win32/Boaxxe.G trojan
    C:\Users\maaldridge\Desktop\RK_Quarantine\yzxxvcqk.dll.vir Win32/Boaxxe.G trojan

    ...and the reason you changed Eset settings is?
    By default Eset should have removed those files.
    Delete those two files manually, empty Recycle Bin.

    ====================================================

    Your computer is clean [​IMG]

    1. We need to reset system restore to prevent your computer from being accidentally reinfected by using some old restore point(s). We'll create fresh, clean restore point, using following OTL script:

    Run OTL

    • Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste in the following:

    Code:
    :OTL
    :Commands
    [purity]
    [emptytemp]
    [EMPTYFLASH]
    [emptyjava]
    [CLEARALLRESTOREPOINTS]
    [Reboot]
    • Then click the Run Fix button at the top
    • Let the program run unhindered, reboot the PC when it is done
    • Post resulting log.

    2. Now, we'll remove all tools, we used during our cleaning process

    Clean up with OTL:

    • Double-click OTL.exe to start the program.
    • Close all other programs apart from OTL as this step will require a reboot
    • On the OTL main screen, press the CLEANUP button
    • Say Yes to the prompt and then allow the program to reboot your computer.

    If you still have any tools or logs leftover on your computer you can go ahead and delete those off of your computer now.

    3. Make sure, Windows Updates are current.

    4. If any Trojan was listed among your infection(s), make sure, you change all of your on-line important passwords (bank account(s), secured web sites, etc.) immediately!

    5. Download, and install WOT (Web OF Trust): http://www.mywot.com/. It'll warn you (in most cases) about dangerous web sites.

    6. Run Malwarebytes "Quick scan" once in a while to assure safety of your computer.

    7. Run Temporary File Cleaner (TFC) weekly.

    8. Download and install Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI): http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal/. The Secunia PSI is a FREE security tool designed to detect vulnerable and out-dated programs and plug-ins which expose your PC to attacks. Run it weekly.

    9. (optional) If you want to keep all your programs up to date, download and install FileHippo Update Checker.
    The Update Checker will scan your computer for installed software, check the versions and then send this information to FileHippo.com to see if there are any newer releases.

    10. (Windows XP only) Run defrag at your convenience.

    11. When installing\updating ANY program, make sure you always select "Custom " installation, so you can UN-check any possible "drive-by-install" (foistware), like toolbars etc., which may try to install along with the legitimate program. Do NOT click "Next" button without looking at any given page.

    12. Read How did I get infected?, With steps so it does not happen again!: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic2520.html

    13. Please, let me know, how your computer is doing.

    *Sigh* As for changing the ESet setting... I reread your instructions. I unchecked the "fix" box, since the instructions said "check the scan" only. I was so determined to do as instructed, and wasn't sure if the default setting is always the same or not. I suppose I was in "cleaning mode" now...

    Yay! Clean is good! =)
    Thank you so much.
    I will follow the steps above and post how things are going shortly.

    Hi Broni,

    I just noticed the problem again. :(
    Two iexplore.exe or chrome.exe.
    Tried a few things I had at hand, MalwareBytes and aswMBR, but nothing is found.
    Do I open a new thread and follow the steps again?

    With IE and Chrome open or closed?

    When it's open. It goes away when I close it.

    That's normal.

    IE and Chrome will start two processes from the get go.
    Then they'll add another one for each open tab.
