    Sounds like Spyware!

    Sounds like spyware. I recommend running the following 3 anti-spyware utilities (see the Download section at this site):

    • AVG 8
    • Ad-Aware 2008
    • Spybot Search & Destroy

    Repost with results.

    Best,

    If you are that grateful then please tell this to the moderator, Kimsland. He doesn't like my spyware removal instructions.

    rezava, what was the fix that you did?
    Do you remember if a file in D:\autorun.inf was removed?

    To access Add/Remove Programs

    Appwiz.cpl
    from run command

    it is best to go with TS recommended procedure found herehttp://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html

    You might still have additional infections on your system. Post your logs and an expert will assist you with removing what ever that remains.

    It is likely that you still have Virus or Malware issues present
    The "programs" listed above are never enough to clean your system

    Please scroll up to my original reply to you, and click on the Virus\Malware removal link

    Edit:

    Thank-you tw0rld for reconfirming this originally advised link

    Thanks for the reply

    The inf file may be either:

    1. Hidden (Click on Tools->Folder Options-> Show Hidden and Show system files)
    or
    2. Now removed by running those Spyware programs


    Regarding the 8 Step Virus\Malware proceedure
    Yes this is the easiest (and best ;) ) way to confirm and rid your system of these issues

    Another option would be to backup any user data
    And install Windows clean

    These are your only two options

    Usually yes :) It will solve your issues

    But it is recommended to provide the attachments, just to confirm all is confirmed ok

    If you feel that this is not required, so be it.
    Just give a reply once finished (and after restart) that all is then, well :grinthumb

    "No action taken" stated on MBAM log

    You needed to view the log and then fix the found issues!

    You will need to

    Run Malwarebytes again
    Confirm it is updated (I think that's the second or third tab)
    Then do another full scan of C and D drive
    Then view the results
    Then fix the found issues

    Please note this is also stated in the 8-step proceedure
