Internet slowed and popups

  1. Yay, spyware infection. Also, for some reason, my keyboard acts up when typing on an IE page... never offline, though.

    Unfortunetly, due to being impatient, I screwed up and missed a tickbox for a "search bar" when installing a program... and got infected. 5 different scanners didn't fix this, and I have no clue how to do it manually.

    HJT log attatched.


    EDIT: Took some time to read your stickies. SUPERantiSpyware is doing a complete scan now, when that's done, I have to run combo fix. Finish the steps, and post a log. Though it seems super antispayware is finding a lot on it's own that my 5 other scans failed... all Ad-aware found was tracking cookies, nothing that would fix the problem...

    Sorry, I should've read stickies before posting.

    I think combofix did the trick :O

    no loading-buzzing from my computer as much, keyboard seems to be normal, popups haven't come up yet... slightly lack of speed might be cause by temp. internet files deletion, which I have no problem agaisnt.

    Of course, please check my logs.

    First - did you install mIRC yourself?

    Next - I would also run MBAM because of the number of infections found with SAS

    There's an Error: 404 "Page does not exist" In your link to the scanner.

    Java is updated. Please post an updated link for your reccomended scanner.
