Hi guys, first off I hope my title isn't too improper, theres just so many issues I'm not sure which to pinpoint, I can't really say "I have this, how do I fix it". Its more, these are my symptoms heres my information, help please >_< lol.

Secondly [And I'm not too tech savvy so I hope this is the info you're looking for]
I'm running a dell dimension 8400, windows xp home edition service pack 3, Pentium 4 cpu 3.20 GHz, 1.00 gb of ram...

I'll try to give a brief rundown of whats going on [long process, been trying to fix it for a few days]
Admittedly I downloaded something I shouldn't have been trying to download[It wasn't via a p2p program, I think you guys semi-refuse help if thats the cause], I was using spyware terminator as my firewall, it blocked a few things from the file [I knew I had made a mistake pretty fast] but it didn't stop it all because my computer has had trouble ever since.

First scans I ran I couldn't delete certain files [were in use] even in safe mode, I ended up deleting the file "c:\windows\system32\abbfcedfe.dll" that was apparently a virus/related to a virus with a program called unlocker.
My problems didn't stop though, for a while I couldn't run SBs&d or bitdefender, or malwarebytes [found mbam on your website] but I found out if I rename the .exe I could install/run the programs, so I've been able to scan my computer with all of those programs, I've also used CCleaner and Eausing Free registry cleaner and even though they have apparently removed or quarantined things, my issues still persist.

Issues being-My log in has not been working right, I think its sort of fixed now, but before all of the scans the screen would either not load to show the accounts at all, or freeze completely after choosing one of the accounts to log in with.

A few times I had to go into the boot menu [I think thats it, the f8 thing] and choose "use last known good configuration" and that at least got me into my account.

IE freezes my computer completely.
Firefox doesn't display pages/images correctly, I had to have my girlfriend create an account here for me because of the image verification, it doesn't show up at all. Nor could I follow the appropriate steps and do a search before I post this [also requires image verification]

Bitdefender suspected a 'backdoor.pcclient.tcb' in one of my firefox profiles cache's, I found it and deleted it, and recently deleted the entire profile in attempts to fix it.

I've also ran RemoveIT Pro [most updated version] which is the scan that alerted me to the 'abbfcedfe.dll' thing in the first place [it couldn't remove it].

So in short, nothing is really running properly, scan programs I've had to rename to get them to work, ie freezes me completely, firefox images are messed up.

Some things I've written down [from various searches] that I wanted to look for were things like. "c:\ttdhe.exe" and "c:\dxsxsq.exe" "win32.unknown.randomx" "sys32.rtdrvmon" "xdtuxhue.default" "spria.dll"

I've tried to be thorough but theres so much I've seen and I don't quite now how to make sense of it all [where you awesome guys come in]
Also, firefox was crashing when I searched for HijackThis and some other free virus removals [from cnet and stuff]the first few times, I've only recently been able to download it, still couldn't run it until I renamed it. Perhaps Mbams scan helped that some.

From what I understand I'm supposed to copy paste the dds text which is essentially a HJT log so you don't need a HJT log, so heres that. Please let me know if you need more information/clarification or if I've overlooked a rule in posting.

After a lot of reading & tinkering and poking around my computer, I've managed to fix my computer issues.

Swept a lot of nasties out, but it was a lot of "UAC-------.log/dll" in the end keeping me frusterated.
Kaspersky got rid of it after a lot of scans.

Anyway, you guys can close this thread.

Thanks for the forums, a lot of good information.

See you around [in better circumstances hopefully, lol]
