HJT Log for Not able to access Task Manager

By asteeley
Dec 19, 2010
  1. Please see the attached log file. I am unable to access Task Manager, and have a Win32 process that ultimately locks up the PC. Also getting redirects from the Yahoo search bar to other random search websites instead of going to the page selected. This PC was without antivirus for several weeks so this stuff could be deeply embedded.

    Thanks much for the help in advance...

    You will need to do a DNS Flush, then reset your router.

    Exit the Command prompt when finished and shut the system down.-

    • [1]. Shut down your computer, and any other computer connected to your router.
      [2]. On the back of the router, there should be a small hole or button labelled RESET. Using a bent paper clip or similar item, hold that in continuously for twenty seconds.
      [3]. Unplug the router. Wait sixty seconds.
      [4].Now holding again the reset button, plug it back in. Continue holding the reset button for twenty seconds. Unplug the router again.
      [5].With the router unplugged, start your computer.
      [6].Connect to the router again. The turn the router back on.
      [7].When it stabilizes, reboot your workstation and try to access the internet. If you have any issues, access the Router configuration page and re-enter your authentication information.
