Posted 19 January 2008 - 09:33 AM

am running xp on a laptop which has started playing up due to malware/spyware. The computer gets to the xp logon screen ok, i select my user and then windows starts but doesnt boot up the explorer bar along the bottom and only brings up the desktop picture (no icons).

I can bring up the task manager using ctrl/alt/delete and selecting 'new task' and then browse i can access any program. i have ran the latest ad-aware, spy bot and microtrend online virus scan and tried to remove the items but it cannot remove them ( and the next time i boot there appears to be more!). Its so annoying.

i have the following HJT logfile:

Welcome to the BleepingComputer HijackThis Logs and Analysis forum mightymouse_toon
My name is Richie and i'll be helping you to fix your problems.

If you have previously downloaded ComboFix,please delete that version now.
You should NOT use Combofix unless you have been instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert.
It is intended by its creator to be used under the guidance and supervision of an expert,NOT for private use.
Using this tool incorrectly could render your system/pc inoperable.

Now download Combofix by sUBs and save to your desktop.
Alternative Combofix download link HERE.
It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop

Close any open browsers.
Double click on combofix.exe and follow the prompts.
When it's finished it will produce a log.
Post the entire contents of C:\ComboFix.txt into your next reply.
Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running.
That may cause the program to freeze/hang.

Do NOT post the ComboFix-quarantined-files.txt unless I ask.
In case your Antivirus or any other realtime scanner is displaying an alert after you downloaded Combofix or while you use Combofix,please disable your scanner and redownload Combofix again.
Some scanners may see some combofix related components as suspicious and block or delete them while there's nothing wrong with them.

Now go to:
Right click on Hijackthis.exe and select 'Rename', rename it to abc.bat
Double click on abc.bat(which is still Hijackthis.exe),post that log into your next reply please.
