    Sorry kitty500cat, we obviously posted at more or less the same time.

    Just to let you know, I have altered the main instructions to include Combofix. This is due to the amount of rootkits that seem to be doing the rounds at the moment. Apart from being able to remove a good number of infections, Combofix is also able to detect certain rootkits, which I find very handy.

    Regards Howard :)

    OK, I'll read it and do accordingly. Also you may want to edit your post, it says it's for my use only :)

    Take it from here, that's fine.

    Regards :)

    You did not attach an AVG Antispyware log as requested. Please do so in your next reply.

    Go to add remove programmes in your control panel and uninstall anything to do with(if there).

    ProxyFirewall

    Close control panel.

    You have a lop infection.

    Please Download NoLop to your desktop from one of the links below...
    http://www.spywareedge.net/nolop/NoLop.exe
    http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/forum/...pmod;dl=item16

    First close any other programs you have running as this will require a reboot
    Double click NoLop.exe to run it
    Now click the button labelled "Search and Destroy"
    <<your computer will now be scanned for infected files>>
    When scanning is finished you will be prompted to reboot only if infected, Click OK
    Now click the "REBOOT" Button.
    A Message should popup from NoLop.
    If not, double click the program again and it will finish Please Post the contents of C:\NoLop.log.

    --If you receive an error, "mscomctl.ocx or one of its dependencies are not correctly registered," please download mscomctl.ocx to your system32 folder then rerun the program.-- http://www.boletrice.com/downloads/mscomctl.ocx

    Post a fresh HJT, Combofix, And AVG Antispyware logs as well as the Nolop log.

    Regards Howard :)
