Hello, I hope someone can help. I have an HP computer with windows xp on it. The first problem that I started noticing was
1. shutting off for no reason. (i do not mean "shutting down"... one sec it is running fine the next.. black screen and the tower is off)
this went on for about 2 weeks. I thought it was my CPU going bad, or maybe for some reason the computer wasn't getting enough power to it. (Not sure if this is related to the viruses or not but I want you guys to have ALL info)
2. The night before last I was listening to a song when another song started playing on top of that one.. **??** I started closing everything I had open one by one.. each time I closed something another song started playing.,not songs I had downloaded. I was hearing 6 different songs playing all at once by the time it was done. Not only were they "songs" they were radio stations. I couldnt get them turned off. so i shut down the computer. When i rebooted the same thing happened when i got to my desktop. It hasn't done it again since.

I get Iexplorer errors along with pop ups. I get redirected every time i try to go to internet explorer. WinAnti-virus is one that consistantly pops up and tries to start downloading. And one called Error Remover
I tried to download AD-Aware but can't get it installed due to all KINDS of error messages. I know it would be nice to know EXACTLY what they say. Well, I've just got to tell ya, If I have to tell you what they say we will be here AAALLL night. There are so so many of them.

OBVIOUSLY, I have managed to pick up some stuff that should NOT be on a computer.
I read the things to do before posting and I have done most but I can't get anything to work.
I downloaded Ad-Aware like it says and it will not completly install.
I downloaded Stinger, will NOT completly scan.
These are the things I have done before coming here to ask for help..(OH GOD..JUST BE NICE IF YOU WANT TO CHEW ME OUT..LOL)
I have ran:
Norton Internet Security 2008 ( I know I know.. P.O.S.)
AVG scanned and removed everything it found.
Bitdefender(my favorite) scanned and removed everything it found.
NoAdware scanned and removed everything it found..
Rogue remover.. scanned and removed
And Registry Mechanic, Scanned and fixed.
I also did disk cleanup as asked to do.
I am really at a loss of what to do. It keeps getting worse and I am having to fight this thing to even do my college homework. GGRR!
It takes me half of an hour just to be able to GET to the site I want to get to.

I downloaded Hijack this, ran it and I cant find the log file.. I will gladly post it for you guys if someone can tell me where to look for it.
I am sure you hear this problem all the time and am sorry for repeating it but I really need some help.
Thanks for any help given!!

Don't worrie usually some moderator will come here and move the post to the correct place.

Usually when you run HijackThis! it will ask you if you want to scan and save a log, or just scan.
Maybe thats your issue right there. I'm pretty sure someone in the Hjt team will see this and help you.

Good luck!

I see you have an open HJT log posted in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum.
You shouldn't make any changes to your system, while your HJT log is posted, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.

At this point, the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

I'm closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team.
If, after your log has been cleaned, you still need help, please PM a Moderator and we will re-open this topic.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send me a PM.
