I've been having some serious issues with my computer. (In case you couldn't tell by the title, *wry grins*). And that d*mn PingDogFind.exe file has been driving me NUTS because it just won't go away! (Tried all the soft/freeware I could get my paws on- which is a WHOLE LOT).

I know for certain that I had a wealth of trojans on my system, (hopefully a lot less of them now that I've run so many scans). PopUps have always been an issue with IE for me, although my FireFox is now infected too. I *think* I've managed to get rid of any viruses. Maybe. Possibly. (And yes, I followed some wonderful instructions you wonderful forum peeps have posted in the forums to fix/repair/DESTROY!!! these nasties- Thanks for those!).

I'm about to curl into an itty ball and cry- whatever is on my system won't let me save the logfile from HijackThis. It also won't let me upload (like, say, a screenshot) or download *anything*. :thumbsup:

This is what I managed to copy & paste:

If you know how I can circumvent whatever is keeping me from showing you my logfile, let me know. (It's also been "uploaded" to here. Don't know if the link will work for you.).

Let's see if you can post a different type of log
  • Download Silent runners by Andrew Aronoff from here
  • Unzip/extract it to a folder on your desktop
  • Double click on Silent Runners.vbs to start Silent runners
  • If your antivirus warns you about a script, allow it to run, this script does not contain malicious code
  • You will be asked if you want skip the supplementary search, click Yes
  • Wait for Silent runners to inform you that it has finished
  • A log will be created in the same folder as Silent Runners.vbs
  • It will have a name of Startup Programs (yourusername) date-time.txt
  • Use notepad to open that file
  • Copy and paste the contents as a reply to this topic
