hi, so i will repost what i have here

"Hey so unfortunately i believe i might have a browser hack...

per the title, none of those work. symanetc refuses to update with a working internet connection and processexplorer shows nothing to my knowledge. safe mode could not be accessed through the bios (hitting f8 repeatedly). this is my built computer so it has nothing from hp or anything else. the way i accessed safe mode was using msconfig but it may not seem like the real safe mode as when entering mozilla, i get redirects using google like without google. go.google trojan or something...
tried downloading and reinstalling the three programs but still failed to run. tried on my laptop and still fails. used a usb to copy a fresh install.exe but nothing, even in safe mode

(that was safe mode with networking. without, none of the antiadware works.)

so in other words, malwarebytes, combofix, hijack this, all failed to open after double clicking. no error messages.
symantec shows no viruses, when clearly there are, and nor does adaware 7.0 the most recent update for symantec is 6/28/09

please advise smile.gif but dont be in a rush. im already considering gettin a new hard drive and repartitioning but i kinda want to fix it if i can"

attached is the log file for hijack this. currently the computer is off for fear of spreading infection.

Nvm, for those of you who could benefit from this...

what i did was basically upload malwarebytes, spybot, regscrub, spywareblaster, spywareterminator, and winpatrol onto another working computer, UPDATED them, and used spywareblaster to set a save point. also on the computer was symantec updated.

once all those programs were up, i just took out the infected hard drive and plugged it into the protected computer and ran a whole bunch of scans. will take a few hours because you gotta do full scans on all drives. the hard drive not infected will be attacked so do be cautious. just keep scanning and keep quaranting and deleting. eventually everything will be clean and at least the browser hijack will go away if not everything else.
