  1. Hello,

    Where to begin?

    Okay so my ten year old son has been using my computer. It started out with the vundob virus and is slowly spiraling out of control. IE is infected with pop-ups, somehow my computer no longer has cd burner software, now firefox is infected with pop-ups, and recently my desktop icons disappeared but have magically reappeared and then today i received rundll.32.exe - application error "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc00000005). If it wasn't for the pictures and the music I believe I would be having a ritualistic burning of the computer. Attached is the HJT report. Thanks in advance

    Disable any real time protection if you haven't already

    • Download Combofix to your desktop.
    • Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
    • A window will open with a warning.
    • When the scan completes it will open a text window. Please attach that log back here together with a fresh HJT log.
    Caution - do not touch your mouse/keyboard until the scan has completed. The scan will temporarily disable your desktop, and if interrupted may leave your desktop disabled. If this occurs, please reboot to restore the desktop. Combofix is a very powerful tool so please do NOT do anything without instruction

    Combofix will automatically save the log file to C:\combofix.txt

    Before we remove anything else - lets install the recovery console so that you have it

    First lets install the recovery console.

    Go to Microsoft's website here -->
    Select the download that's appropriate for your Operating System

    Windows XP SP2

    Download the file and save it as it's original name to your desktop

    Close all open windows and programs, then drag the setup package onto ComboFix.exe and drop it. Follow the prompts to start ComboFix and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Recovery Console. When complete, a log will open. Please attach that log here.
