This is a problem a friend of mine, Cyberlizard, has been having. He had downloaded WindowBlinds from a torrent and installed it. Upon uninstalling it, it messed up his computer. Here are the error messages he gets.

He has not taken a screenshot of the 3rd error that occurs after he enters his password to connect to the internet.

He is unable to get on the internet using his computer. He had tried a System Restore, but that only made things worse.

I and another friend of mine, Daniel (who is an expert with computers) had attempted to help him using HijackThis. But HijackThis didn't detect anything that could be causing the problem.

I then came across instructions on how to recover lost files in the RECYCLER hidden folder, and attempted to help Cyberlizard with that in an attempt to get the MoHlog.txt file back, but it kept coming up with an error message. With Daniel's recommendation, I had Cyber download Stellar Recovery to try to recover the file, but he has no idea how to use the program.

Is there an easier way he can recover the MoHLog.txt? And would that fix his internet connection problem? If not, what can he do to fix his computer?

downloading shareware from a torrent?

modem on hold text file missing?

and wireless adapter profile missing

since he can't get on the internet you might download some scanners for him and see if they find anything?

It takes a long time to learn to read a hijackthis log

Sometimes it's best just to reload the computer

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

I could post up his HijackThis log if that'll help.

If you suspect this is a malware problem - please post over in the "Am I Infected" forum (located here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/ ) They'll advise you if an HJT log is necessary.

FYI - HJT logs posted in places other than the HJT forum are moved to the Misplaced HJT log forum by the moderators.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
