Hi,

A reformat and reinstall of Windows would completely clean it and make it like how you got it, but since you don't have the CD the only way to do this would be with a recovery partition if you have one. What is the make and model of the computer and I will find out if you have one. :thumbsup:

They will be able to clean your computer if you can't or don't want to reformat. You can post here and someone will help you with what to do. :flowers:

Regards,
Adam

Well, when you start the computer and see the first screen; you can hit the pause button on your keyboard to keep it there. Then, read it and see if it says anything about recovery or anything like that. That would be the only way, next to calling Sony for the recovery CD, to reinstall Windows.

Hello cor3,

I see that you have an HJT log posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/163353/computer-might-be-infected-still/ 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.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

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

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
