My first post, please forgive any small missteps in explanation. I run Windows XP on a Centrino laptop. Experienced windows redirects and malware removal tools and scans would not work.

SO far I have already: removed AVG anti-virus software, removed Malwarebytes, I downloaded AND ran Combofix on my system carefully following the instructions on this website (I had to rename file, it would not run from Desktop without changing the name before downloading).

NOW I seem to have no troubles, computer running superfast, but I wonder if I can post Combofix log for someone with greater skills to examine and see if I have a "healthy PC". I do not understand the log and have no way of knowing if I will have more problems down the road. Just let me know if you can help and I will "quickly" post Combofix log. Thanks in advance.

Hello, I sincerely hope I get a response to this post as no one has shown interest in my other post. I had a Google redirect problem where the address bar in the lower left hand of my Firefox window was reading "windowsclick." and then a bunch of different symbols. I could not click any link to any antispyware sites (had to manually enter in address bar) and on two occasions, my attempts to research malware removal ended in my screen going black and I had to reboot. I did get to research and found out about Combofix. I have run it (carefully) and have a log that I would like someone to pretty please check for me. A day after running Combofix I was getting messages about PC antispyware 2010 detecting threats and I have since (today) re-downloaded Malwarebytes and run it per the instructions from this website. As of the time I am writing this, everything seems ok, but it seemed ok after I ran Combofix but I still had the PC antispyware 2010 apparently on my computer. If you need more info please ask me, I just really need some help with this. Thanks in advance.

Hey, I am glad to see someone ^^ responded, ironically, I have been patient and this is the first time I have logged back in more than 2 weeks from my original post and there is still no response. Not upset, just pointing out that I "double posted" and bumped my post because of no response and 2 weeks + later still no response. Problem was fixed, new problem now but thats another post.... :thumbsup:
