Hi all

Having probs with my laptop

Have a windows vista home premium 32bit

Have Mcafee Total Protection which is having problems updating

i deleted a program that kept appearing in the process' called MSA.exe (which i think is malware of sorts) and since then, windows and any other security related program stopped updating. So i carried out a system restore to before i deleted the program and windows now updates but Mcafee still doesn't.
'
Problem is, is that startup is slow and sluggish and process' appear that are extremely suspicious. i looked at the startup programs through msconfig and 2 in particular make no sense, these are Vpowajurijaf and Urobijosifaduj . Now i do not believe any of these to be a legitimate process. I disabled both these process'and windows would not startup. Instead it would crash then give an option of system restore which i was obliged to do.

I used Hijackthis and here is the log

Right
OTS ran fine. The log is attached

I downloaded gmer. Ran it. After the first scan i tried saving the log and got a blue crash screen.

Restarted computer and ran it again, while scanning, the program stopped working. Tried it in safe mode. Program stopped while scanning again. Windows would ask to close program or check for online solutions. I would chose close program. As soon as i close it, blue screen pops up.

So the GMER was unsuccessful

Ahh, i didnt know that was the end of the fix :D hehe

Well i was getting the redirecting issues with firefox which i havent tried.

With chrome and explorer it seems to be fine. But then it was fine from before.

I still have the sluggish startup with some unknown processes.

Im going to try disabling some startup programs and see if my computer still crashes after startup

Also im going to try updating my security software which i was unable to do before.

I'll let you know how i get on.
