The system in question is a Dell Precision M6400, OS: Windows Vista Ultimate SP1 with Norton Internet Security 2009.

History: I have a desktop at home (that I will be contacting you later about) that has the yoog search toolbar in Firefox. It also shut down my DHCP Client on my Desktop. It has the same OS and NIS 2009. I run the same programs as Laptop.

I recently installed Avast! Antivrus 4.8 Home Edition and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

I ran avast! Antivirus boot scan and it did not detect anything. When I ran MBAM, it detected 迭egistry Keys Infected: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{147a976f-eee1-4377-8ea7-4716e4cdd239} (Adware.MyWebSearch) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

I hope that I am being paranoid, but I need to make sure that the laptop doesn稚 have something hiding in it like my Desktop does.

Please let me know what my next step should be?

Thanks

After browsing the forum I've discovered a few more things. In my startup files from MSCONFIG There is an entry for C:\Program Files\Wave Systems Corp\Common\ChangeTPMAuth.exe /T:NTRU12. There are few more strange looking entries in here as well.

Thanks

Toby

adware.mywebsearch is nothing you should be fine. try super anti spyware. adware.mywebsearch just slows your computer down by a little bit

Closed as requested and because there is a topic posted in the HiJack This forum here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/211710/infected-with-win32agent-abkh-yoog-and-many-others/

Because you have a log posted, 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.

Good luck with your log.

Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
