Hi this is my first post to this forum. I read the instructions about posting here the first time. Funny thing about that. Every time I try to run DDS or open a command prompt it just resets my explorer window. So I essentially cant run DDS.

I have run all of the following with nothing found.

AVG 8.5 (wont update though).
Super Anti Spyware
Spybot S&D
Panda Online Active Scan

I even pulled the HD out and ran the Sophos Conficker checker from my clean machine, nothing.

Im about to pull the HD again and run more tests, does anyone have any ideas what this could be?

In the zip file are the logs for HijackThis, GREM and MalwareBytes.

Please help this has me stumped beyond belief. The reason I think its still infected is every time I plug into the network and try to update Malwarebytes, AVG or SAS they all fail. I can use the internet (Google) and I was able to run Panda Active Scan (which found 4 low risk items).

I got it figured out.

Had to do an outside scan (from my clean machine) with fully updated stuff.

MalwareBytes found it.... (Trojan.Daonol)

What an SOB. First time I've ran into that little thing.
