Hey Guys, Sorry for the trouble.

I noticed my PC was being infected with Trojans a few weeks back ( I "think" it started when I updated my Divx WebPlayer, as the new version downloads the completed stream to your HD). Originally the Trojans were being removed by AVG and Malwarebyte's which I had installed, although shortly after the viruses returned. Over the last few days my Firefox was then infected by the rootkit / edirect virus and Malwarebyte's was being closed when I tried to scan + AVG couldn't update. After reading a number of posts I tried using ComboFix to remove the redirect virus which seemed to do the job and detected the rootkit presence.

Although the redirect viruses has now gone, I still seem to be getting more trojans? AVG and Malwarebyte's are also still not working. Malwarebytes seems to close after around 4-5~ seconds (One thing I did noticed is that during the 4~ seconds Malwarebytes is open the programs upper window bar shows a number usually starting with 4xxxx or 5xxxx ? Is that always there?.. ) and AVG is showing access forbidden during updating and agian nothing seems to fix it :/

The trojans continue.. :thumbsup:

I wounder if anyone can help ? Thanks!

(command prompt will also not open (unless through .cmd files), and some files won't open, including regcure)

Please read this topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/273628/combofix-usage-questions-help-look-here/ concerning 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.
