We need to reset your "hosts" file.

Please, go here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/972034#FixItForMeAlways and click on "Fix it" button to reset your "hosts" file.

Re-run MiniToolbox with only this line checked:
List content of Hosts
Post new log.

Good.
We'll rebuild "hosts" file now.

Open Notepad.
Paste the following text into it:

# Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
#  	102.54.94.97 	rhino.acme.com      	# source server
#   	38.25.63.10 	x.acme.com          	# x client host

127.0.0.1   	localhost

Go File>Save As and...

1. Name the file hosts. (no extension; make sure there is just a "dot" at the end <--- VERY IMPORTANT!)
2. Make sure, "Save as type:" is set to "All Files (*.*)
3. Make sure the file is saved to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC folder

What do you mean by "some"?

Download Temp File Cleaner (TFC)
Double click on TFC.exe to run the program.
Click on Start button to begin cleaning process.
TFC will close all running programs, and it may ask you to restart computer.

  • Disable your antivirus program
  • Tick the box next to YES, I accept the Terms of Use
  • Click Start
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.

  • Click on Export to text file , and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.

Temp file cleaner cleared 294.mb
then crashed and Avast warned of root kit found
c:\windows\system32\drivers\UMDF\wpdmtpdr.dll
c:\windows\system32\..\PCCSwpdDriver.dll
and suggested "delete now" so i did- hope that was ok?

desktop went weird for a bit icons , but no text
shutdown and rebooted

on restart Avast says
c:\combofix\HIDEC.cfxxe
recommend open in sandbox
i said ok


thats where we are at.
anything else i should do before ESET onkine scanner?

You didn't say:

on restart Avast says
c:\combofix\HIDEC.cfxxe

You shouldn't be running Combofix on your own.

Go ahead with Eset.
