    Your logs look fine to me and as long as your computer is not acting up at all you should be fine!

    The only thing I would recommend you do is look into what is in your superantispyware log.


    Go to the Documents and Settings\Aya\Application Data\Adobe and see if the 'player.exe' file is still there. If it is, DONT CLICK IT....delete it if you can. If you don't see it, disregard what I said and you are virus free!

    PS...I dont remember if the Application Data folder is hidden or not by default..you may have to go into 'Folder Options' and check the 'show all hidden files and folders' option..

    I'm not so sure about this entry:
    O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions present

    Did you/administrator set some restriction policies on Internet Explorer? If not, do fix these entry.

    The HJT log also has this info that I have not seen before:

    From HJT tutorial -
    This section corresponds to an Administrative lock down for changing the options or homepage in Internet explorer by changing certain settings in the registry.

    These options should only appear if your administrator set them on purpose or if you used Spybots Home Page and Option Lock down features in the Mode -> Advanced Mode -> Tools -> IE Tweaks section.

    the fake adobe seems got deleted after the scan with SAS.

    my account is computer administrator, but i really don't recall doing something like restriction policy
    what would you suggest?

    I do have a spybot search and destroy.
    what would you suggest? should i disable it? or get rid of spybot?

    thanks for the asap reply guys i appreciate it!

    Use Spybot S&D as suggested by the tutuorial. Perhaps you will discover what turned off IE version.

    Here is link to O6 in the HJT tutorial

    However, this tweak ui when using Spybot only checks/unchecks boxes that control users ability to change IE options. Once there, do you see where to control display of version?

    Kimsland often suggests resetting IE.

    drivex, are you actually using an Antivirus software?

    yeah i have kaspersky, SAS, MBAM, HJT, ccleaner and spybot S&D.
    i usually turn autorun off to prevent slowing down the start up process.
    and only turn them on when I go to net and download files from net.
