Hi guys,

I recently started having major problems with random internet explorer pop-ups, slow computer etc, and my homepage kept getting changed to <hxxp://lookanddiscover.com> every time I restarted the computer. I have had the vundo virus before (a couple of years ago) and I went through the various online antivirus scans to locate and delete infected files wherever possible. I was a little miffed that my eset antivirus hadn't prevented this infection in the first place.

I have also now run Combofix which located and deleted various entries. I was hoping I would be able to post up either a HijackThis or ComboFix log (or both) to request that somebody more knowledgeable than me gives it a once over to give me a clean bill of health - is that ok?

Thanks in advance.

If you wish to post your HJT log, please do so in the HJT forum. Do not run Combofix unless instructed by an HJT team member.

If you have any other questions, just ask...
