  1. I'm having a problem, i had a trojan of some sort that i got rid of eventually with 20 different programs, now all thats left is a virus that, upon starting my pc up it opens like 50 URL's to random websites in the background, and everytime i restart they grow in number, i tried safemode but couldn't locate the files i needed to delete, they appeared to be hidden, i've also cleared them from the task manager with security task manager and on the next restart they came back. i don't know what to do besides never turn my comp. off again? I've used dr.webcureit, spyware doctor, many different anti-virus programs, kaspersky, and tried deleting them manually.

    whatever trojan it was broke my superanti-spyware and now i can't install it again, also AVG won't uninstall.

    I also just unhid my temp folder and there are 3 "etilqs_" files in it, looked them up and they appear to be keyloggers or trojans?

    There's a few issues here sadly :(

    Current Malwarebytes database is: 1807 (not 1749) did you update it?
    Refer here on how to get the log:
    AVG can be uninstalled using one of these tools:
    removal tool
    Here is the 32Bit version (most users): http://www.avg.com/filedir/util/avg_arm_sup_____.dir/avgremover.exe
    Here is the 64Bit version: http://www.avg.com/filedir/util/avg_arv_sup_____.dir/avgremoverx64.exe
    Also run this one too (to be safe it's gone)

    Regarding your Temp folder, did you do this:

    Here's what you should do

    Run CCleaner
    Remove AVG using the removal tools above


    Install Avira free AntiVirus
    Update Malwarebytes and run a full scan
    Try installing and updating and scanning with SUPERAntiSpyware again


    Scan with HijackThis again

    Attach all 3 logs

    Good luck on round 2
