I suspected some malaware causing the following symptoms:

Various parts of websites, not only banners, go blank and non-functional when I am online. It affected more than one application which runs off the internet and other websites that it never affected before including msn.com and yahoo.com (about 90% of the page went blank which seems to be more than just a banner being blocked). The strange thing is that it also carried into non-website areas-the Internet Options area in the Control Panel making the functions not visible and not workable. Then when I tried to open Kaspersky Internet Security from the bottom right corner Kaspersky turned off. I ended up having to do a "hard reboot" because I was not able to even close down the computer from the Start Menu.

I ran ComboFix and it quarantined three items below:

2000-10-27 17:23 50688 --a------ I:\Qoobox\Quarantine\I\WINDOWS\system32\BSZIP.DLL.vir
2008-03-17 11:33 44 --a------ I:\Qoobox\Quarantine\I\WINDOWS\system32\msssc.dll.vir
2008-04-22 08:57 39 --a------ I:\Qoobox\Quarantine\catchme.log

Can you please advise me if these items are malaware and how to remove them off my computer.

Thank you in advance for your help.

ComboFix logs should not to be posted outside the HijackThis forums. It is an extremely powerful tool which should only be used when instructed to do so by someone who has been properly trained. ComboFix is intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for private use. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.

Please create a new topic explaining the nature of your problem in the Am I infected? What do I do? forum. Describe pop-ups and system tray or desktop icons that have appeared. Explain what is "going wrong" with your computer. Note any tools you have used and their respective results.

If needed, we will direct you to our HJT Preparation Guide.

Thank you for using BleepingComputer as your malware removal source.
