Hello everyone:

I've come to beg help from the experts again. I've got a computer running Windows XP home and Internet Explorer that started acting up yesterday. While on the internet playing World of Warcraft my son started having the game minimize every 5 minutes or so and pop ups would appear.
Today I changed Windows start up to diagnostic and ran Adaware and then SuperAntiSpyware. I then let Panda run it's online virus and spyware scan and it found a bunch of stuff - some of it I recognize as being okay but some, like Vundo, I thought were not supposed to be there. Here is a copy of the report:

I'm hoping someone can take a look at this list and help me get started on cleaning out my system - especially those annoying pop ups!

Thanks in advance.

Have you run the scans from safe mode?

Please run this BC Tutorial
How To Remove Vundo/Winfixer Infection

Also can you post the SUPERAnitispyware log,please,after a Safe mode scan if possible.

To retrieve the removal information, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log.
A text file will open in your default text editor.
Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.
Click Close to exit the program.

How to enter safe mode(XP)
Using the F8 Method

Restart your computer.
When the machine first starts again it will generally list some equipment that is installed in your machine, amount of memory, hard drives installed etc. At this point you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode.

Thanks a lot for the help. I always feel like I get quality responses from BleepingComputer.com.

Initially, yesterday, I ran the scans after going into msconfig and choosing Diagnostic start up. I thought that would be similar to safe mode. Today I did run the scans from safe mode and it feels like I'm making some progress! Here is the scan result from SuperAntiSpyware:

SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log

Application Version : 3.4.1000

Core Rules Database Version : 0

Memory items scanned : 155

Trojan.Unknown Origin

So that you know yesterday while I was waiting for a reply to my post I checked into mp43.exe online, did a file search on my pc and deleted everything that came up referencing yahooo.exe and mp43.exe. I did not go into the registry so I don't know if that really got rid of those or not. Also I ran VundoFix. It didn't find anything.

What's the next step?
