What anti-malware programs have you run? Scanning with these 2 freeware programs, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and SUPERAntiSpyware, is a very good idea. Go for a full scan in both programs - download them, update them and run them one by one:

Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware: http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
SUPERAntiSpyware: http://www.superantispyware.com/superantis...efreevspro.html

When posting your problem, do not run and post a ComboFix logs. ComboFix is a tool that should only be run under the supervision of someone who has been trained in its use. Using it on your own can cause problems with your computer. Any posts containing CF Logs will be ignored.

To receive help, you should instead provide a detailed description of your problem, detailed word-for-word error messages that you are receiving, screenshots of strange behaviour, and your operating system. This information is much more useful to our helpers than a ComboFix log.


Please note the message text in blue at the top of the Am I infected? What do I do? forum.

ComboFix It is an extremely powerful tool which should only be used when
instructed to do so by someone who has been properly trained in the use of the program.
ComboFix is intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance
and supervision of an expert
", NOT for private use.
Please read Combofix's Disclaimer.. Using this tool incorrectly could
lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing
it from ever starting again.


If you are having malware issues, your post will be moved to AM I INFECTED?. Over50 is correct-we need to know the nature of the problems in order to help you with them.
