Well, I've gotten through a ton of spyware problems myself, but I have trailed behind and forgotten a lot of the techniques I used to know, and now I have a problem that needs some helping.
I Googled this, but can't find anything. All I know is that the computer starts fine, then at some random point, a command promt comes up at the location C:\Windows\System32 and I get a sort of pop-up. It looks more like a program though. Its title is "Sitebar!" and the content is something about an IE toolbar and to hit the Accept button or something.
Now, after I exit the window, I get a popup to some spyware site. I usually close it in time, but if I don't I get random pop ups about downloading things through IE, etc, etc. The worst part of all this is that after this, I checked my C:\ drive, and in there is low.exe, and a bunch of other misc files, and low.exe starts. At some point during all this the internet goes down. Well, I wouldn't say the internet goes down, but I can't connect to my router (No 192.168.1.1, nothing). I've run Avast!, got nothing. Ad-Aware with the latest definitions picks up a random program, and I remove it, but it comes back everytime.
Well, here is the HijackThis! log:
EDIT: A simple system restore to a couple days back fixed this. Thanks anyways.
