    I did all the above. Both logs are attached. I ran my virus scan in safe mode, it found about 30 files that was infected. All of which i removed. I'm hoping i'm clean. If i keep finding files over and over, i'm just gonna format it out. But i'm trying to salavage my files.

    You need to pick one antivirus and uninstall the other. It is unnecessary and can cause system conflicts, slowdowns and crashes.


    Open HijackThis and select "Do a system scan only" and place a check mark next to:

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {30D8163B-E0B5-405E-B1B1-933707CC08BE} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\gebya.dll (file missing)
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)

    Close all windows except HijackThis and click "Fix checked"


    Delete these files/folders, as follows:

    * Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the quote box below into it (all except the word QUOTE):

    * Save this as CFScript on the desktop.
    * Then drag the CFScript (hold the left mouse button while dragging the file) and drop it (release the left mouse button) into ComboFix.exe as you see in the screenshot below. Important: Perform this instruction carefully!


    * ComboFix will begin to execute, just follow the prompts. After reboot (in case it asks to reboot), it shall produce a log for you. Post that log (Combofix.txt) in your next reply.

    Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it is running. That may cause your system to hang

    Download ViewpointKiller

    * Unzip the program and all of the contents of to a location such as your desktop.
    * Double click the ViewpointKiller icon to run ViewpointKiller.exe. Select the "File" menu, and select "Check to see if you have Viewpoint installed".
    * If ViewpointKiller indicates that any of the Viewpoint variants are installed, select the proper "Kill" option in the File menu.

    Follow the prompts and instructions very carefully, answering "Yes" or "No" depending on which option you are most comfortable with. The MsConfig instructions are very important, so be sure to read them carefully.

    Note: When done with ViewpointKiller, simply right click and delete all files that were unzipped.

    No problem.

    The log is clean.

    You can delete any logs that may have.

    Go to Start > Run and copy and paste next command in the field:

    ComboFix /u


    Make sure there's a space between Combofix and /
    Then hit Enter.

    This will uninstall Combofix, delete its related folders and files, reset your clock settings, hide file extensions, hide the system/hidden files and resets System Restore again

    If anything else comes up then let us know.

    Safe surfing.......[​IMG]
