I seriously have no idea what I'm doing. So here it goes:

A couple weeks ago I got a thing called anitvir. I got a program called Malwarebytes to clean it up and it did for a while. On my start up menu I find it again so I ran my malwarebytes again and it came up clean. So im at a loss. Please let me know if you need anymore information. Thanks alot for any input.

When you say, "On my start up menu I find it again", do you mean Start button, Programs, Startup ?
If yes, please specify exactly what it shows there.
If yes, RIGHT CLICK on the entry, click Properties, specify what the target of the shortcut is.
Properties will also show you what date that entry was created.
(That will tell you if it is from the same time frame as as your previous problems a few weeks ago, or if it happened AFTER your last fix.)

Which operating system do you have ?

Are you experiencing any problems, or wierdness ?
If we don't change the direction we are going,
We are likely to end up where we are headed.

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/293655/antivir-infection/ 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 ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in 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 EXTREMELY 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.

Please be patient. It may take several days, up to two weeks perhaps less, to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
