When I run a virus scan using AVG I get the message C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts change result: changed. I have attached Kappersky and DSS scan results. Do I have something to worry about? besides AVG I have SpyBot which I update and run every couple of days. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello Stalagmite

Welcome to the Bleeping Computer Malware Removal Forum, sorry about the delay, but the amount of people posting with infected computers is through the roof and sometimes we can't get to logs as fast as we would like to. If you have not resolved your issue and still need assistance, download and install Hijackthis by Trendmicro and post a log, copy and paste it into the thread by using the Add Reply button, please do not attach it. I am looking at a possible trojan on your system.

Download Trendmicros Hijackthis to your desktop.
Double click it to install
Follow the prompts and by default it will install in C:\Program Files\Trendmicro\Hijackthis\Highjackthis.exe
  • Open HJT Scan and Save a Log File, it will open in Notepad
  • Go to Format and make sure Wordwrap is Unchecked
  • Go to Edit> Select All.....Edit > Copy and Paste the new log into this thread by using the Post Reply and not start a New Thread.
DO NOT have HijackThis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
