Ok, so I think a virus has found its way onto my system. I have run McAfee like 10 times and the problem still persists. Nothing is updating! Not windows, not spybot. Basically everything that is used to get rid of it has been disabled. More recently, I went to the microsoft webpage to download updates directly and the windows update page always redirects to Google. I found this entry(http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic194759.html) that I think goes hand in hand with mine but I wanted to get some professional help before I started messing with my system. Thanks for any and all help.

Hello sonicslayer,

Now that you have a log posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/200173/virus-wont-give-up-the-ghost/ 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.
