Hi, I had Vundo.H and Trojan.Agent and managed to clean every trace of them off my pc except these pesky BHO keys that Hijackthis won't remove. I can not manually delete them, even in safe boot. My browsers are running much slower even though malware, Avira say that I am clean. Here is my Hijack this log and my Malware log.

You can go ahead and lock this up. I managed to fix my pc over the weekend. I could not get the BHO's to delete, but I did reset all my browser settings by following these instructions and it completely fixed everything.


Sorry to have bugged you all. If you can drop me a note to tell me how to delete the orphaned BHO's but if not its cool, since they don't seem to be negatively affecting my pc.
