This is on my laptop running Vista and it's the first time for this. I am getting redirected online and was going to to do the usual malwarebyte and superantispyware combo. The problem is neither will run. Also spybot wont run (getting a sqlite.dll is not found). lavasoft will run, but it finds nothing. Nod32 is not finding a thing either (had to reinstall it and it was able to load but wouldn't allow the update). So i then tried to uninstall mb and super and reinstall them. But it wont allow that either. I also ran a trojan hunter program and it finds a suspicious file in my sys32/drivers folder but i cant delete it because it says it cannot be found even though i am picking out the one suspicios file alone. It will not let me rename it either. I also tried to run killbox and after clicking onthe file it says it cant be found. Not sure what to do from here?

I was wondering if I could install the above programs on a flash drive and plug it in and run off of it perhaps? Like I said this is my time i have ever had to rid my Vista machine of a nasty and not sure what to try next?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried renaming the folder to say Fixme and running, also yes you can try running from the flash drive.

Hello plaz,

I see that you have an HJT log posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/181392/jeez-what-a-mess/

We do not allow more than one topic for the same computer and the same issue as this causes confusion, and in this case may make the disinfection process more difficult.

This leaves you with a choice:

1) Have this thread reopened and the HiJack This log topic deleted


2) Keep this thread closed and wait for assistance in the HiJack This log forum. Please note that that forum is VERY busy.

Please send a Private Message indicating your choice.

Assuming you wish assistance in the HiJack This forum, 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:
