Hi. This is my first time posting in this forum...I really need help. I followed the preparation guide but it does not seem to completely rid my computer of the problem. Everytime my computer restarts after the "cleaning" with AdAware, the popups return. AdAware is always detecting "virtumonde" and an ad for AdvancedCleaner pops up at random. I've noticed that the problems begin after I've opened up FireFox. Here is my HijackThis logfile...

Hello droopytx,

We will run ComboFix.

You need to disable your McAfee Antivirus, Spybot Teatimer and Spyware Doctor before running ComboFix, as they will prevent it from running.

To disable McAfee Virusscan:
Please navigate to the system tray on the bottom right hand corner and look for a Posted Image sign.
  • right-click it -> chose "Exit."
  • a popup will warn that protection will now be disabled. Click on "Yes" to disable the Antivirus guard.
You succesfully disabled the McAfee Guard.


To disable Spyware Doctor from running on your system startup:
1. First, disable the OnGuard Tools. This way, when you exit Spyware Doctor, these tools won't stay resident in the background.
2. Click the "Settings" button on the left side.
3. Click the "Startup Settings" link.
4. Uncheck "Run at Windows Startup".
5. Click the "Apply" button.


To disable Spybot's Teatimer:
Run Spybot-S&D
Go to the Mode menu, and make sure "Advanced Mode" is selected
On the left hand side, choose Tools -> Resident
Uncheck "Resident TeaTimer" and OK any prompts



Please visit this webpage for instructions for downloading and running ComboFix:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Be sure to install the Windows XP Recovery Console in case you have not installed it yet. <== IMPORTANT

Post the ComboFix log.

Hey thanks for the reply. I'm having a heck of a time installing the Recovery Console...I don't have the original disk and getting ComboFix to install it for me just won't work...I'll run it tonight without the Recovery Console and post the log.
Thanks,
Steven

You do not need the original disk!

Please read thread and follow the directions:

If on the other hand, you use Windows XP and do not have the Windows CD, ComboFix includes a method of installing the Windows Recovery console by downloading a file from Microsoft. To install the Windows Recovery Console when you do not have the Windows XP CD, please follow these instructions:


I'll run it tonight without the Recovery Console and post the log


DO NOT run ComboFix without the Recovery Console installed.

I cant work on ComboFix if the Recovery Console is not installed.
