Well, quite frankly, my internet has been incredibly spotty since Comcast's recent blackout three days ago; so spotty, in fact, that even when plugged into the wall itself, I'm -still- having trouble keeping a stable connection. I've run the gamut of programs to check for any bad bits that might have jumped my whitelist; I came up with a single detection for vmain.class in one of my Java folders, but that's since been taken care of.

What the heck's going on here, folks? Is it my computer that's causing me problems or is it Comcast? ( Though, I wouldn't be surprised if it were the latter. )

( By the way, here's the rundown for the Aspergites on this forum that need to know each and every last detail: I'm running Windows Vista Home ... something on a Gateway NV52; look the model up and you'll find all the specs you'll need. The main problems I've come up against is that I can no longer connect to IRC nor keep a constant connect for more than mere seconds at a time. I'd really just like to throw up the HijackThis log up and just let it be a day, but due to the bureaucracy of problem-solving on this forum, I have to sit and wait, I guess. Again, thanks for the help! )

Hello, the regime requests a DDS and possibly a Gmer log now.
Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9,which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If Gmer won't run,skip it and move on.
Let me know if that went well.

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/319534/checkup-pt-2-exactly-whats-up/ 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 MRT 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 MRT 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 MRT 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 MRT 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 MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days 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.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
