Hi jeebstheman and Welcome to the Bleeping Computer!

Please download LQfix.exe from one of the following locations:
  • http://www.downloads.subratam.org/LQfix.exe
    http://miekiemoes.geekstogo.com/tools/LQfix.exe

  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Double-Click LQfix.exe and click Next > Next > Install.
  • Leave the default settings, if you change them, the fix will Fail!
  • You need an active Internet Connection, so make sure your you're not blocking any connection now.
  • Now make sure the "Launch LQfix" box is checked.
  • Click the Finish button, after clicking the Finish button the fix will start.
  • Follow the on-screen prompts.
  • Your system will reboot afterwards.
  • Please be patient after the reboot, there is a script running in the background that needs to complete.
After the Script has finished-> Download WinPFind:
WinPFind

Right Click the Zip Folder and Select "Extract All"

Don't use it yet!


Download and unzip BFUzip from HERE

Right Click the Zip folder and select "Extract All"

Locate and double click BFU.exe

Now locate and click the Greenish Blue globe with the chord plugged into it!

When the next small window pops up-> Copy&Paste this URL into it and click OK!
http://webpages.charter.net/cretemonster/Lockx.bfu

Now click the Execute button and let the script run!


Reboot into SAFE MODE(F5 or F8 when restarting)
Here is a link on how to boot into Safe Mode:
SafeMode

Once in Safe Mode-> From the WinPFind folder-> Doubleclick WinPFind.exe and Click "Start Scan"

It will scan the entire System, so please be patient!

One you see "Scan Complete"-> a log (WinPFind.txt) will be automatically generated in the WinPFind folder!


Run MSCONFIG and enable everything in the startup area. To get to MSCONFIG, click on Start -> Run -> Type in MSCONFIG -> click OK.

Under the "General" Tab
Make Sure Normal Startup is Checked!!

Select the tab labeled Startup and put a Check by every box there!! Once everything is enabled, run "Hijack This!" and post a new log to this thread!!

Restart Normal and have the PC Scanned here:

You will need to be using Internet Explorer for the Scan to work!

Save the Report it generates!

Post back with a fresh HijackThis log and the reports from WinPFind and Panda!
