I believe I have several viruses, and recently a search bar has been added to the bottom of my screen that I can't get rid of. I also cannot open Internet Explorer. I am using someone else's computer, so I can't download any programs right now. Please help me! Here is my hijack this log.

Hello quatrbackrwb and welcome to the BC forums. After reviewing your log I see a few items that require our attention. Please print these directions and then proceed with the following steps in order.

First we need to remove some services.

Part 1
  • Click Start>Run, type services.msc into the Open editbox and click the Ok button.
  • Locate the WebSeach Toolbar support NT service service and double-click on it to open the Properties dialog.
  • Click the Stop button.
  • In the Startup type dropdown select Disabled.
  • Click the Apply button and then the Ok button.
  • Repeat the above steps for the WinTools for IE service service.
  • Close the Services window
Part 2
  • Click Start>Run, type cmd into the Open editbox and click the Ok button.
  • Copy/paste each line below into the Command Prompt window and press the Enter key after line:
    • sc delete TBPSSvc
      sc delete WinToolsSvc
  • Close the Command Prompt window
Step #1

Launch Notepad, and copy/paste the text in the quotebox below into the new document. Save it to your desktop as smitfix.reg :

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
"NoDispAppearancePage"=-

"NoDispBackgroundPage"=-

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoActiveDesktopChanges"=-

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
