I have had several years experience with elimination of computer infections, but this one stumps me horribly. Early on I cleaned off a bunch of trojans, a few worms, and more spyware than I can name. Now there is a very responsive infection that seems to react to my efforts in ways that I can only believe are controlled by someone through a backdoor that I can't find. It modifies registry entries without consent, disables and shuts down internet when I try online scans but somehow can not be located by anything I have. Hijack this is posted below, hope you can help

Thanks

Hello that4guy20,

You posted a parital Hijackthis log.
If you still need help post a complete Hijackthis log and I will be glad to help. :blink:

BTW, I notice you have two antivirus program running. :thumbsup:

I (as well as MicroSoft, McAfee and Symantec) recommend that you DO NOT have more than one anti virus product installed and running on your computer at a time.

The reason for this is that if both products have their automatic (Real-Time) protection switched on, then those products which do not encrypt the virus strings within them can cause other anti virus products to cause "false alarms".

It can also lead to a clash as both products fight for access to files which are opened again this is the resident/automatic protection.

In general terms, the two programs may conflict and cause:

1) False Alarms: When the anti virus software tells you that your PC has a virus when it actually doesn't.
2) System Performance Problems: Your system may lock up due to both products attempting to access the same file at the same time.

Therefore please go to add/remove in the control panel and remove one of these.
McAfee Antivirus or AVAST Antivirus
