So...first post here, and it figures it would be for a bad reason. The forums have been incredibly helpful reading, though. I'd greatly appreciate any help you kind people can provide me in getting rid of the malware on my comp. The Facts: I (stupidly) clicked on a bad .exe file and things got nasty quick, with avg anti-virus picking up stuff and pop-ups like crazy with increased cpu activity. Came here, and followed all of the steps in the before you post a HJT file thread. The current symptoms after everything, are a small read circle with a red exclamation mark in my taskbar (tells me i'm at risk/infected) that won't go away, and "you're infected with spyware popups" in IE (Firefox is getting dl'ed as soon as this issue is resolved). I've attached the HJT file before I started fixing things in it, as well as the current HJT log. I've also attached the AVG ant-spyware log from earlier in the process, the SmitFraud Rapport, and the Virtumundo Log. Thank You again in advance.
