I was trying to help my girlfriend by finding a good virus scanner for her, and in the process, I got a couple viruses of my own. I started noticing that Internet Explorer kept opening on it's own. Nonstop windows of Internet Explorer kept opening with automatic downloads, saying I had spyware on my computer and that I had to download their product to remove it. Norton said it found a couple (not just one, I think it was 5-6) Trojan Droppers, and it didn't do anything, it left the files alone. So I spent 3 days searching for virus scanners, spyware removers, malware scanners, and whatnot. Spybot keeps finding this trojan called Hupigon13 and Windows Internet Explorer Security issues. And it keeps coming back after I fix the problem. AVG won't even scan my machine. After about 6 spyware/virus scanners into my search I found Trojan Remover, Dr. Web Antivirus and HiJackThis. I don't know how to read a HijackThis log and Dr. Web found about 6 trojans and downloaders on my machine. Trojan Remover finds a "Debugger" program every time it runs a scan and shows that this debugger program changes a registry value of "0" whenever Task Manager and Regedit.exe are executed. Which would explain why my regedit and task manager do not work, but I don't know how to fix it. At the moment IE stopped opening on it's own. But Task Manager and Regedit will not open. I have no screen that says it's been disabled by the administrator it just does not show up at all. Task manager does not show up even when I right click on the task bar and click task manager. When I try to open Regedit and Task Manager with the Run Command I get an error message saying "Windows cannot find 'regedit'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search. The same applies for Task manager. I seriously have no idea how to fix this and I would really prefer not to have to reformat my machine. Anyone have any ideas on what I should do? I've attached my hijackthis log. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
