yes i know i have nortons and avast on my computer at the same time, but before this it wasn't this bad.

Perhaps this changed after a recent update??? It sound like you've heard the speech before..... I'll give it again. Have one AV is a MUST.... having more than one is just asking for trouble. They WILL fight for system resources...cause slow downs and errors and worse case scenario; cancel each other other. If you want to keep both make sure one is completely disable so only one is running at a time.

Please download and install SUPERAntiSpyware
  • Load SUPERAntiSpyware and click the Check for Updates button.
  • Once the update has finished, exit SUPERAntiSpyware. Please do NOT run a scan yet!
IMPORTANT: Do NOT open any other windows or programs while SUPERAntiSpyware is scanning, it may interfere with the scanning process.
  • Open SUPERAntiSpyware and click the Scan your Computer button.
  • Check Perform Complete Scan and then click Next.
  • SUPERAntiSpyware will now scan your computer and when it\u2019s finished it will list all the infections it has found.
  • Make sure that they all have a check next to them, and then click Next.
  • Click Finish and you will be taken back to the main interface.
  • It could be possible that it will ask you to reboot your computer in order to delete some files after reboot.
  • Ill need a log afterwards of what has been found.
  • To get the log, click Preferences and then click the Statistics/Logs tab. Click the dated log and press View Log and a text file will appear.
  • Please post the results of the SUPERAntiSpyware login your next reply.

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune.
This program is for XP and Windows 2000 onlyDouble-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
If you use Firefox browserClick Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
If you use Opera browserClick Opera at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
For Technical Support, double-click the e-mail address located at the bottom of each menu.


Next download OTScanIt.exe to your Desktop and double-click on it to extract the files. It will create a folder named OTScanIt on your desktop.
  • Close any open browsers.
  • If your Real protection or Antivirus intervenes with OTScanIt, allow it to run.
  • Open the OTScanit folder and double-click on OTScanit.exe to start the program.
    (Vista users, please right click on OtScanIt.exe and select "Run as an Administrator")
  • Leave all the setting to the default except as noted below
  • Check the box for Scan all user accounts
  • Under Additional Scans sections, check the following
  • Reg - BotCheck
  • File - Additional Folder Scan
[*]Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
[*]The program will be scanning huge amounts of data so depending on your system it could take a long time to complete. Let it run unhindered until it finishes.
[*]When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
[*]Save that notepad file
[/list]Since the log is too large to post, use the ADDREPLY button, then scroll down to the attachments section and attach the notepad file here.

Looking real good actually

Start OtScanIt. Copy/Paste the information in the codebox below into the pane where it says "Paste fix here" and then click the Run Fix button.

[Kill Explorer]
[Unregister Dlls]
[Files/Folders - Modified Within 30 days]
NY -> qoobox -> %SystemDrive%\qoobox
NY -> 5 C:\WINDOWS\System32\*.tmp files -> C:\WINDOWS\System32\*.tmp
NY -> 3 C:\WINDOWS\*.tmp files -> C:\WINDOWS\*.tmp
NY -> 18 C:\Documents and Settings\Michael\Local Settings\Temp\*.tmp files -> C:\Documents and Settings\Michael\Local Settings\Temp\*.tmp
NY -> 5 C:\WINDOWS\Temp\*.tmp files -> C:\WINDOWS\Temp\*.tmp
[Files Modified - Additional Folder Scans - Non-Microsoft Only]
NY -> 1 C:\Documents and Settings\Michael\My Documents\*.tmp files -> C:\Documents and Settings\Michael\My Documents\*.tmp
[Extra Files]
[Empty Temp Folders]
[Start Explorer]

The fix should only take a very short time. When the fix is completed a message box will popup telling you that it is finished. Click the Ok button and Notepad will open with a log of actions taken during the fix.

If it reboots this may not happen. If you need to manually find the file it is at Desktop\OTScanIt\MovedFiles\04082008_163441.log or what ever yours is named(Date/Time you ran the fix)

Please run the F-Secure Online Scanner

Note: This Scanner is for Internet Explorer Only!
  • Click on the Start Scanning button at bottom of page.
  • Accept the License Agreement and the ActiveX install.
  • Once the ActiveX installs,Click Full System Scan
  • Once the download completes,the scan will begin automatically.
  • The scan will take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan completes, click the Automatic cleaning (recommended) button.
  • Click the Show Report button and Copy&Paste the entire report to your Desktop for later posting.
Please post
  • OTscan it "results" log (described above)
  • F-Secure log
  • Fresh OtScanIt log made after F-secure
in your next reply here
