    Run HJT Scan only remove the below.
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {02478D38-C3F9-4efb-9B51-7695ECA05670} - (no file)

    All scans clean.

    So do this! Go to Control Panel Add/Remove programs an uninstall all Java, If some unistall and others will not reboot and they should uninstall.

    After the Add/Remove is clear of Java run CCleaner from the 8 Steps both temps and Registry twice or more till clean!

    Then Download and install Java from here:
    Decline any offered extras such as New MSN Toolbar.

    Once installed do the below to cleanup more.

    Download JavaRa
    Unzip it, run it, to update chose Jucheck (Suns updater). Should report up to date!

    After update chose Cleanup old versions. Give it a minute and after it pops up the log file you will see what it removed.

    Then click "Additional tasks" and check "remove Useless JRE files and Remove JavaRa log files.

    After that run Search for Updates again to confirm you are up to date.
    After that run remove older versions again. This time the Log file should be empty.

    Report back.

    OK lets do some cleanups and alternative scans.

    First lets clean Temps and registry

    Run CCleaner (get SLIM at bottom no Yahoo toolbar)
    Run twice or more on Cleanup temps, then on left click Registry then Scan for issues also repeat till clean. You may have this from the 8 Steps.

    Run ATF-Cleaner Temp and Registry, repeatedly until no more found.

    Fantastic cleaner. (When installing uncheck Relevant Knowledge do not install)
    The issues can and are likely found is in System Restore so do the below

    Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-Disk- System Restore and create a new Restore point. Name it "Cleanup at TechSpot".

    Then Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-Disk Cleanup
    Click OK to accept C:
    Select all Boxes
    Then click More Options
    Here click System Restore and OK to "Are you sure" and the OK to Run.

    As this runs it clears all but the most recent Restore Point but it does one other thing that can contain infested files and a huge amount of disk space.

    It clears what is known as Shadow copies which are used by specialized back up programs.

    This is if you have the Volume Shadow Copy running which is the default.


    Download ComboFix

    Get it here:
    Or here:

    Double click combofix.exe follow the prompts.

    Install Recovery Console if connected to the Internet!

    When finished, it will open a log.
    Attach the log and a new HJT log in your next reply.

    Note: Do not click combofix's window while its running. That may cause it to stall.

    Download SDFix to Desktop.

    On Desktop run SDdFix It will run (install) then close.

    Then reboot into Safe Mode

    As the computer starts up, tap the F8 key several times.

    Click thu all the prompts to get to desktop.

    At Desktop
    My Computer C: drive. Double-click to open.

    Look for a folder called SD Fix. Double-click to enter SD Fix.

    Double-click to RunThis.bat. Type Y to begin.

    SD Fix does its job.

    When prompted hit the enter key to restart the computer

    Your computer will reboot.

    On normal restart the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then say Finished,
    Hit the Enter key to end the script and load your desktop icons.

    No you do not need Registry Mechanic. Go to Add/Remove and uninstall it! It may even be your problem!

    After Registry Mechanic is removed reboot and rerun the steps that found the Registry mechanic (likely CCleaner Registry Clean) and 350 problems and fix them all.

    Run HJT Scan only select and remove all the below.
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL =
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar =
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HPBootOp] "C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\HP Boot Optimizer\HPBootOp.exe" /run
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" -osboot
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HP Software Update] C:\Program Files\Hp\HP Software Update\HPWuSchd2.exe
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [RegistryMechanic] C:\Program Files\Registry Mechanic\RegMech.exe /H
    O4 - Global Startup: Compaq Connections.lnk = C:\Program Files\Compaq Connections\5577497\Program\Compaq Connections.exe
    O9 - Extra button: Messenger - {FB5F1910-F110-11d2-BB9E-00C04F795683} - C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe (file missing)

    Now rerun ComboFix again as it had findings and we need to see a clean log!

    Now before doing the below Boot to Safe Mode Networking

    Go here and get and run FSecure EasyClean:

    Go here VIPRERescueScanner: install and run.
