I'm hoping that someone here can help with this. This problem began two days ago when a rogue anti-spyware installed itself onto my computer. That rogue anti-spyware program is called WinSpywareProtect and it is a malicious program (to say the least). I tried all sorts of things trying to get rid of it, including, unfortunately even MORE rogue anti-spyware programs that tried to pass themselves off as legit (SpyHunter3 and a few others). Nothing seemed to actually remove te WSP so I finally did a search on my computer for all wsp files. A list of about ten fiiles came up and I was able to delete or move them to the recycle bin and then empty that. That seemed to solve the probems that WSP was giviing my (constant and repeated popup ads trying to get me to buy their program).

However that seemed to bring on a new problem (this morning) that being whenever I try to go to a website online I get the website that I am trying to go to but another website also comes up and that is where I am directed. All of these "popup" websites have one thing in common they are all trying to get me to provide my personal info to them and sign up for all sorts of things from e-bay to cruises to other antispyware programs.

Long story short I have tried everything that I can think of to try to get rid of this but nothing seems to work (including running SpyDoctor in Safe mode and rebooting). I have included my HiJackThis log (as I was directed to do) in the hope that someone here might be able to provide some assistance. Thank you in advance for any help or assistance you might be able to provide on this/KellyG

4. Please visit this webpage for instructions for downloading and running ComboFix:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Please ensure you read this guide carefully and install the Recovery Console first (not for Windows Vista users !).
The Windows Recovery Console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery mode, in case your computer has a problem after an attempted removal of malware. This allows us to help you. (WinXP SP3 users, please download the appropriate SP2 file, Home or Pro, to install the RC)

In the event you already have Combofix, delete your current version and download the latest version as described in the tutorial.
It must be saved directly to your desktop.


Note: Make sure not to click ComboFix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall or freeze.

Please post the log from ComboFix (can also be found as C:\ComboFix.txt) in your next reply. :thumbsup:

If you have any questions along the way, STOP and ask them before proceeding !!

Greetings,
Thunder
