I am running windows XP media center edition version 2002 service pack 3, and have been using IE, firefox and safari all with the same results= constant browser crashes and slow sometimes (not responding) messages when I try to perform mundane tasks. On rare occasion the screen will turn blue and say that i need to restart my system due to DRIVER RRQD NOT LESS OR EQUAL even though i havent messed with the drivers.

I have tried to download spybot, adaware and hijack this but spybot will not run properly even though i installed and see it in my taskbar and on my system. I have run adaware and that seems to be the only program running properly, and hijack this shows up but will not do anything past the run prompt window during install.

I am not very familiar with pc software but thought i was following the right steps, please help me get my system back.

Hello nbhooligan69,

Please note that you should post only ONE topic per issue per computer. Posting more than one confuses things for everyone involved. The only exception is when you are directed to post a new topic in a different forum in which case the original topic is closed to avoid confusion.

In your case, you created 3 topics here in the Am I Infected forum. This one, and these: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/209706/ie-and-firefox-infections/


The two others have already been closed because of the presence of your HiJack This topic. But wait, you have two of those as well. Therefore, I shall be deleting one.

This one shall remain: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/209732/browser-hijack-unknown-virus-name-nasty-sounds-right/

I shall also edit that topic to include contextual information you failed to provide in that topic.

Because you have a log posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/209732/browser-hijack-unknown-virus-name-nasty-sounds-right/ 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.
