Virus Issues, Logs attached

  1. Hello, recently I have been having trouble with my Windows XP Media Center Edition 3. Here are the details:
    I have been helped by the very kind and helpful Route44. He recommended that I complete the 8 steps, and I found a lot of viruses at first, but now I think I have gotten rid of most of them. Here are the logs. Avast! was a very helpful program, I thought the 8 steps guide was very helpful. The first MalwareBytes log (6-23) was before I used Avast! and SUPERAntiSpyware. The second log was after I had completed the 8 steps.

    Open notepad, copy the text in bold into it.

    dir /s /a "c:\*userinit*.*" > c:\find.txt && notepad c:\find.txt

    Save the file on desktop as - find.bat.

    Doubleclick on find.bat.

    It will scan your computer, and produce a log.

    It looks ok.

    I´ll suggest you run combofix, and see if it find some infections ->

    Please download combofix here ->
    Before Saving it to Desktop, please rename it to to stop malware from disabling it.

    Now, please make sure no other programs are running, close all other windows.

    Please double click on the file you downloaded. Follow the onscreen prompts to start the scan.
    Once the scanning process has started please DO NOT click on the Combofix window or attempt to use your computer as this can cause the scanning process to stall.
    It may take a while to complete scanning and this is normal.

    You will be disconnected from the internet and your desktop icons/toolbars will disappear during scanning, do not worry, this is normal and it will be restored after
    scanning has completed.

    Combofix will create a logfile and display it after your computer has rebooted.
    Usually located in c:\combofix.txt, please attach it to your next post

    Okay, here you are. I am going to bed now.

    Edit: For some reason it changed my background to a picture of Stonehenge.

    My pleasure :)

    Now your computer problems are solved, it is time for the clean-up procedure
    You should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one.
    The easiest and safest way to do this is:
    Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore
    Select Create a restore point, and Ok it.
    Next, go to Start > Run and type in cleanmgr
    Select the More options tab
    Choose the option to clean up system restore and OK it.

    This will remove all restore points except the new one you just created.

    Click START then RUN
    Now type Combofix /u in the runbox and click OK.
    Note the space between the X and the U, it needs to be there.
    The above procedure will:
    Delete the following:
    ComboFix and its associated files and folders.
    VundoFix backups, if present.
    The C:\Deckard folder, if present.
    The C:_OtMoveIt folder, if present.
    Reset the clock settings.
    Hide file extensions, if required.
    Hide System/Hidden files, if required.
