Well I've posted a HijackThis log in the other forum days ago, but tried on my own to remedy the situation. Whatever is wrong is just too good for me to deal with. I tried a clean reinstall on C, but left my other hard drive in tact due to the fact it's full of my freelance work. After getting windows on and updating everything all seemed well. About the time I set up thunderbird to access my gmail is when I think my machine became compromised again. I don't know really. Im watching the outgoing log on my router and it shows continuous outgoing on port www to various ip addresses. My ISP keep shutting down my ip about every two days. I've got avg, asquared, zone alarm, windows firewall, windows defender, spybot, and the router firewall all going and it doesnt seem to do me any good.

Help please...

I would stick with my HJT thread even if I reloaded, try to find out what's reinfecting you

One nasty new malware even infects your router, too many threads and computers just confuses everyone

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Hello Nacire,

I see that you have an HJT log posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/154050/infected-with-netbot/ Because you have this log posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
