I really need help - I managed to get a trojan which launched a rogue application on my system tray that appeared like it was a virus guard of somekind - every time I tried to close it it would launch a 'scan' and other ms i.e. windows pointing to various locations at malwarecrush.com. Subsequently fake alerts kept on showing in i.e. (similar to when an activex control starts) which I dutifully ignored - I could use i.e. provided that I entered the url in the address bar, but could not access any page which required entering data such as accounts (I did not access anything confidential or that has a password or user id similar to any financial or personal accounts) - or searches in yahoo.

I followed the instructions on this website for posting HJT logs, and have scanned multiple times using various applications - which means I now have I think 4 AV applications running - they all show clear and I no longer have the fake application in my system tray, but I still cannot use i.e. same issue as before minus the fake alerts- and strangely when I try to access internet options from within i.e. to look at settings etc - I am told that the operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer - I can however change and view internet options settings from control panel. Firefox works fine, but I am worried that I still have an infection/trojan due to my not being able to use i.e.

Anyway - below is my HJT log - so sorry for the long post and THANK YOU in advance for your help - I really am at a loss, and have spent the last 5 days running scans, searches disk cleans etc etc etc

OK, I seem to have fixed the issue - at least temporarily - I unloaded I.E 7.0 from the control panel - which reverted i.e. back to V6.X which I was able to use with no issues. Will post an HJT log later - and report on progress...

Although everything seems to be working, and no reports of any kind of virus/trojans etc, am still a little nervous that there are hidden issues.

I apologize for the very long delay. We have a huge backlog of HijackThis Logs to handle and it has been taking us greater time than normal to get caught up. If you are still having a problem, and want us to analyze your information, please post a brand new hijackthis log. If we do not hear back from you within a couple of days we will need to close your topic.

When posting your logs please post them directly into the reply. Do not attach them.

Also make sure you have already followed the steps outlined below:

Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log

Thank you for your patience.
