A month or two ago i believe i acquired the antivirus soft infection. The symptoms were that i was unable to update any of my spyware programs or visit their websites. Each time i tried to visit there websites, it gave me the typical server not found page. A friend of mine told me to download combofix and run it. Doing so found the exe to the virus (lvkusftav.exe), and removed it. After removing i was still unable to update or visit the webpages to my antispyware programs. Since then i also believe i have become infected with another type of malware since iexplorer.exe wants to keep randomally connecting to the internet. Also i have 4 or so iexplorer.exe processes running even though the real iexplorer is not even running. Im also getting some random redirects to pornsites and other bogus search engines.

Im running windows xp with sp3

Please read this topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/273628/combofix-usage-questions-help-look-here/ which discusses the use of ComboFix.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at step 6.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Since you have run ComboFix, please include the ComboFix log in the new topic.

If you cannot produce any of the other logs, then please create the new topic anyway, include the information that you were unable to produce the other logs and why and include the ComboFix log along with a description of your computer issues.
