I was infected with malware previously, and Superbird helped
me clean it up, the above link is to the topic where he helped
me clean off the malware.

However, I am now having problems with my windows installer and
also my Disk cleanup as I'm trying to clean all my system restore
points except for my most recent one.

How old are the files you want to compress?
Also note you cannot compress old files

I'd do this before setting a new restore point, anyways, especially after what you went through:

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune & save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • If you use Firefox browser click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • If you use Opera browser click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
Note: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled. To empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".

Okay thanks, I'mma begin the steps and hopefully can give you back some good news.
The files I want to compress ... can be quite old, I'm unsure on the dates, they usually can be
around 9-12 months old I assume.

A couple of errors I got after cleaning my cache using that program.
Now several sites don't show up properly including this one.

Very odd. clean the cookies and history left over in your browser, and reboot the computer. You should be good to go then

did a reset and bleepingcomputer still doesn't show up properly.
I still haven't completely tried the windows installer thing right now however
I want to get my firefox fixed up first before we move on, Thanks :thumbsup:

As well, I think it's a problem with my javascript. Just a hunch.

I think this is another malware/virus problem, I'm going to
do a scan with MBAM to see if anything happens. :flowers:

Result from my latest MBAM scan... turns out there was something still.
Should I post this in a different section of the forum?
I'm having multiple problems still, with the windows installer, diskcleanup,
the javascript/viewing of sites using my browsers, and now this.

Anyways the logfile is below. :thumbsup: I also found two other items in the quarantine section
(trojan.agent, and another trojan of some sort) ... I removed both of them just incase.

Sorry if I'm taking too much action without first waiting for directions.

EDIT: I just noticed that javascript/viewing of most sites work fine with internet
explorer, but just not with firefox so I'm going to try reinstalling firefox to see if it helps.

So now all that's left is the windows installer and disk cleanup problem...
