Here are topics from people with the same problem, you can scroll through them to get an idea on how to fix it. However do not run combofix without an admin telling you to run it. running it by yourself can cause serious problems to your PC.

Hello vernel1008,

@ kau_cinta_ku's advice: It is very unwise and potentially harmful to your computer to follow disinfection procedures in the HiJack This forum as these were designed with a specific computer in mind. Every computer set-up is unique as is frequently the mix of infections. Following fix instructions for someone else's computer as the potential to render your computer inoperable.

I see that you have an RSIT log posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/195885/using-rsit/

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:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
