I have been working on computers on the side for a couple of years now, but I have run into a dead end on this situation. The clients computer I am working on was recently infected with numerous viruses, hijackers, and spyware. After finally getting everything cleaned up, internet explorer appears to be corrupted. I can't get any activex scripting to work. I can't load windows update website, yahoo mail, pcpitstop, etc. All settings are correct, I have checked and double checked that. I have done a reinstall of internet explorer. I have run all windows repair utilities. I have uninstalled and reinstalled flash player, java, and shockwave. Yet my problem is still the same. Has anyone ever experienced a problem like this before? I am trying to avoid a reformat and clean install of windows if at all possible, simply because my client refuses to do that. All help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

Hello asaw3157 and welcome to BC

Have you tried a program like CCleaner to get rid of all the temp files and junk files?

In Internet Explorer, go to Tools>Internet Options>General tab>Settings>View Objects. Do you see anything in there described as damaged or corrupted? If you want to really get down and dirty you can delete anything in there and they will be reinstalled on demand.

Also, have a look at Windows Update Troubleshooter.

Consider posting a HiJack This log in case some of that malware is still lurking.

First of all, the only damaged objects was this one:

I posted a HJT log here:

I have CCleaner, and it has been run. Everything is cleaned up. I guess I will wait for word on the HJT log and go from there.

Oh, and I tried the link for the Troubleshooter, but could not get it loaded...
