Here is the Host file from system32/drivers/etc:

# Copyright © 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

# This HOSTS file created by Dr.Web Scanner for Windows

127.0.0.1 localhost

okay, that looks okay

Download HardwareLook, and unzip it to your desktop.

Double click HardwareLook.exe, allow it to run and click the Scan button.

Click Done when its ready and Exit to close the program.

You should have a txt file on your desktop now named hardwarelook.txt, please posts its contents here.

regards, Elise

Yes,

It still continues to BSOD. I tried running a scan last night and found the computer rebooted this morning. I have another program called Powerdesk which is a file manager replacement for Windows explorer and when I try to open it, it takes forever to list the files in the display window. It seems better than it was but is still very slow.

It hasn't recently shut down my internet connection that I know of so that's an improvement and it hasn't removed anything from my Startup menu since yesterday so I guess we've made some good progress.

I still have problems getting into Safe Mode and haven't been able to run Dr. CureIt yet.

All in all, it's a big improvement so far.

With the information you have provided I believe you will need help from the malware removal team. I would like you to start a new thread and post a DDS log HERE and include a link to this thread. Please make sure that you read the information about getting started before you start your thread.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient. Help is on the way!


EDIT - I have the feeling there is more wrong than shows the eye here. Scans are coming out relatively clean, but thats contradictory to what you are telling me, so thats why I think its better to go for a deeper investigation.

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
