Hello,
Last week, I inadvertently (and stupidly!) clicked on an unzipped executable file I had downloaded that immediately caused me problems with my system - Windows XP Home SP2. The problems would arise whenever I opened any browser. Popups would occur, system would slow down considerably, sometimes a 'Buffer Overrun' error dialogue would appear and generally making surfing a nightmare.
I followed your tutorial about running ComboFix and, lo and behold, seems to have remedied the situation. I am now following the advice given in the tutorial in submitting (as an attachment) the HijackThis log taken immediately after running ComboFix. I also have the ComboFix log - also taken immediately after running ComboFix - should you wish to examine this.to ensure that nothing nasty has been left behind.
Your assistance will be most gratefully received.

Hello and welcome to BleepingComputer.. :thumbsup:

I apologize for the insanely long delay. We have a huge backlog and the forums are extremely busy..

If you're still around and need some help, please post back with a fresh HijackThis log (simply copy & paste it in your reply rather than as an attachment).
Hi there, stranger!
