I keep getting about:blank pages, and all kinds of suspicious and weird browser activities. I ran Superantispyware and found adware that my ESET Smart Security Suite obviously didn't detect and detain. Also, somehow my Documents folder is no longer on my Start Menu.

In general, all kinds of creepy stuff is going on and I cannot repair any of it after a week Goggling everywhere for help.

I'm very tired, scared and frustrated. :thumbup2: Please help me if you would be so kind.

I have Windows Vista Premium Home Edition 32 bit.

Thank you and have a great day. :)

Here are the 2 DDS reports requested for examination.

Not sure how to upload or attach these to you so I hope I did it correctly. Sorry if I did not.

If you want or need a new Hijackthis report, please let me know.

Somebody out there must have been hijacked and attacked by a win32 trojan before. Please help out a poor fool like myself. No good deed goes unrewarded.

here is the other dds.txt file you asked for.

Pls help and thank you.

Let me know if you now have everything you requested.

Also, I have spotted something scary that needs explanation. Please tell me what "VideoToolkit01" this is. I saw it and do not recognize it.

Is it the name of the MALWARE I'm infected with? How do I remove it? Boy am I scared!!!!!
