I would be grateful for some help on this problem please.
The first thing I noticed was Internet Explorer started to redirect my searches.
I ran my usually scans Eset anti virus, Ad-aware and Spybot but nothing found.
PC Spyware Doctor reported the following infections:
Trojan.Delf.BZ, Rootkit.TDSS and Win32/Kryptik.ADD Trojan.
I downloaded Combofix from this site after reading how to use.
The program installed and ran up to stage 50, it reported the following:
C:\Windows\system32\Event Log.dll is infected, rebooting Windows please wait.
Combofix then just hangs there.
Now Ad-aware,Spybot and Hijackthis won't run reporting various issues.
eg Highjackthis= Windows cannot access the specified device,path, or file. you may
not have the appriate permissions to access the item.
Thankyou in anticipation.

Hi garmanma,
Thankyou for the reply to my posting.
Sorry I havn't replied sooner - have been off work with flu.
My wife took the machine to the local puter shop.
They reinstalled Windows and charged me 45 per hour
for 3 hours approx. 135/$220-wow!
I have cut and pasted your reply and made a hard copy for future reference.
Thankyou once again for the effort you put in trying to help me out.
Regards
