  1. Yes, I don't know how you read through these day in and day out, but here is mine. I run AVG pro, scanned with it, ad-aware and spybot s&d, all find traces of something, but never what I want. I consider myself somewhat knowledgable with computers, but reading through all these posts, seems like everyone has somewhat of a different result. I am not extremely concerned about it at this point, it's a good excuse with the misses to build a new one. Anyway, heres my hijack log. Thanks all for any help.

    Also I forgot to mention that I did perform the 8 steps, but had problems with 2 of them, which is why I only have 1 log. I installed/uninstalled Malwarebytes 3 different times, after it installs and I try to run it, it pops up in my task manager for a second and disapeers, so nothing happens. Super Antispyware errors out saying it encounters a problem everytime I try to open it. Same thing, installed/reinstalled 3 different times, all same results. I also tried installing them and running them in safe mode.. no go. Not sure why, but CC Cleaner worked fine. Thanks again.

    Hi undy

    Lets stick to this thread, intruding into other threads is called Thread Hijacking and is frowned upon!

    OK for your problem. Yes it is the Malware that is causing your issues with the 8 Steps.

    Boot to safe Mode networking and do the steps below!

    Left Drag mouse and Copy for Pasting all text in the box below. Make sure the slider bar goes to bottom from the @ to the end of the second exit.

    Then paste to the black screen of an open command prompt. All may not apply so ignore errors.

    This should run and exit!

    It is a coverall and you may see a few errors related to it addressing something you do not need. This is normal ignore.

    Now continue the 8 Steps and post the logs!

    First off, I am sorry, I wasn't trying to hijack threads, more or less just trying to gather more answers to try and figure it out on my own.

    Second, I did exactly as you told me, and the command prompt did go through for about 30-45 seconds then exited on its own, then my desktop flashed rapidly a couple times and that was it. Then I tried again, no go. If I d/l the files and save them on my computer, the .exe for the malwarebytes does the same thing, I get an hour glass for a second, I open my task manager while I double click it, it appears and then goes.. nothing. As for the Super antispyware, trying to install the .exe from desktop, it says it encountered a problem. So then I tried to just run them from the site, I got the malwarebytes to install, like before, but same thing after installation it will not open. When I tried to run Super antispyware, it actually told me my admnistration would not allow it, which I was on administrator, so I thought that was kind of wierd.

    Anyway, I will wait to hear back this time. Thanks for the help.

    Rename the MalwreBytes installer to MBAM.exe

    and SuperAntiSpyware to SAS.exe

    Try to run with these names.

    Alright, got them to work. Had to rename the .exe before installation, and then once again after installation for them to open. I ran MBAM first, and didn't delete any infections, so there probably is duplicates in the Super Antispyware, I have not deleted anything yet, I will wait to here from you first.

    After removing all infections, everything appears to be back in working order, I will do another scan later tonight just to make sure, but everything looks good. Thank you very much.

    No it may look OK!

    I need to see clean logs in these programs. Update and run again post me the logs.

    Then only after above and logs posted do the below.

    Download ComboFix

    NOTE: If you have had ComboFix more than a few days delete and re-download.

    Get it here:
    Or here:

    Before running rename ComboFix.exe 12cbf34.exe then continue and run that!

    Double click combofix.exe follow the prompts.

    Install Recovery Console if connected to the Internet!

    When finished, it will open a log.
    Attach the log and a new HJT log in your next reply.

    Note: Do not click combofix's window while its running. That may cause it to stall.


    Download SDFix to Desktop.

    On Desktop run SDdFix It will run (install) then close.

    Then reboot into Safe Mode

    As the computer starts up, tap the F8 key several times.

    On the Boot menu Choose Safe Mode.

    Click thu all the prompts to get to desktop.

    At Desktop
    My Computer C: drive. Double-click to open.

    Look for a folder called SD Fix. Double-click to enter SD Fix.

    Double-click to RunThis.bat. Type Y to begin.

    SD Fix does its job.

    When prompted hit the enter key to restart the computer

    Your computer will reboot.

    On normal restart the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then say Finished,
    Hit the Enter key to end the script and load your desktop icons.

    Once the desktop is up, the SDFix report will open on screen and also be saved to the SDFix folder as Report.txt.
    Attach the Report.txt file to your next post.
