Greetings all:

I have been getting some strange IE pop-ups even though I use Mozilla Firefox. I performed many searches in regards to this issue. I have tried several of the different combinations of scanners & cleaners, but alas I still see there is still an issue. I not only get to deal with the pop-ups, but system performance has been degraded as well. I have been unable to successfully boot into 'safe mode'. I get a screen full of directory paths... i.e. C:\Windows\...etc..etc.

I am posting my latest HJT scan.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
-Wil

Hi, and Welcome to Bleeping Computer :thumbsup:

My name is jpshortstuff. I would be glad to take a look at your log and help you with solving any malware problems. HijackThis logs can take a while to research, so please be patient and I'd be grateful if you would note the following:
  • I will working be on your Malware issues, this may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
  • The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for the issues on this machine.
  • Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine appears to be clear. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
  • It's often worth reading through these instructions and printing them for ease of reference.
  • If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to say or ask!! It's better to be sure and safe than sorry.
  • Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
As I am still training here, my posts to you will be checked by an Expert member. This will ensure that all advice and instructions I give you are accurate and safe. This may mean that my replies may take a little longer.


Sorry about the delay in responding :wacko:

If you still need help:

Show all hidden files:
  • Click Start.
  • Open My Computer.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  • Select the View Tab.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
  • Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
  • Click Yes to confirm.
  • Click OK.
Please do not delete anything unless instructed to.

Next, rename HijackThis.exe to scanner.exe.
Scan again with HijackThis, and "copy/paste" a new log file into this thread.

Then I will analyze your log and sort out a fix for you :blink:

Also please describe how your computer behaves at the moment.
