Help please! I saw someone else post what appear to be a very similar problem and they were lead through a cleaning of their computer (I downloaded the various programs listed, including combo fix, but do not want to try using them without some guidance). I have been infected with multiple seekmo/180 Search assistant/other malware files that keep appearing after being deleted. I also can no longer access my task manager. Every once in a while, Internet explorer launches by itself and starts trying to reach some site in multiple tabs (although whatever address it is trying to find is not there, but it keeps launching new tabs until I close out the group) Any help would be appreciated on getting rid of the infection. (P.S. I'm running vista SP1)

I am attaching a HijackThis log:

Hello rburnovski,

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.

Thanks for finally getting back to me. However, given the delay, I was not expecting a response and so I elected to wipe my hard drive and restored it to factory settings. Hopefully, I'll take my lesson and be more careful about my firewall and other settings and what I click on in the future.

Thanks for letting us know.

I am posting a part of my all clean speech, have a read and try to keep your computer free from malware. :thumbsup:

Here are some free programs I recommend that could help you improve your computer's security.
(Vista users must ensure that any programs are Vista compatible BEFORE installing)

Spybot Search and Destroy 1.5.2
Download it from here. Just choose a mirror and off you go.
Find here the tutorial on how to use Spybot properly here
Find here changes from older version 1.4 here

Install SpyWare Blaster 4.0
Download it from here
Find here the tutorial on how to use Spyware Blaster here

Install WinPatrol
Download it from here
Here you can find information about how WinPatrol works here

Install FireTrust SiteHound
You can find information and download it from here

Install MVPS Hosts File from here
The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer.
Find Tutorial here : http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm

Update your Antivirus programs and other security products regularly to avoid new threats that could infect your system.
You can use one of these sites to check if any updates are needed for your pc.
Secunia Software Inspector
F-secure Health Check

Visit Microsoft often to get the latest updates for your computer.
http://www.update.microsoft.com

Please check out Tony Klein's article "How did I get infected in the first place?"

Read some information here how to prevent Malware.

Happy safe surfing!
