Hello All -

First thing's first - thank you very much for providing this service. I consider myself to be reasonably tech-savvy and this one seems to still be biting me.

About a week ago, my Vista x64 desktop at home was identified by my ISP as in violation of their terms of service, and my connection to cable internet was blocked. I ran the appropriate scans, MBAM/HJT/ and used CCleaner to double check what was happening at starup. Seemed I had the braviax problem that's been going around lately.

Thru the use of MBAM/Trend Micro/Avira I've seemingly gotten rid of the problem. Got my network connection turned back on, and then, 1.5 days later, it was shut down again.

Went thru the entire process listed above again, and while I thought I got it taken care of (no notifications of any infected files), when connecting to another network with that PC, that network was also shut down (same ISP).

On MY network at home, I'm using Windows firewall. That's the only machine that is hooked up to the network at present. I'm not really getting any slowness/sluggishness out of the PC itself.

Also, I tried to run the DDS and RootRepeal tools, but apparently those do not work with 64 bit OS.

Here is a HJT log that I took this morning - any help would be greatly appreciated.
