Hi guys

I have had this problem for a while now and it's starting to get the better of me. My google links are being hijacked, i get random window popups and am unable to get updates for any of my AV/Malware programs.

I have run scans with MBAM, Spyware Doctor, Spy Bot S&D, Microsoft Security Essentials, Avast, CC Cleaner and Super AntiSpyware. Nothing has managed to remove the trouble maker.

I am very close to backing everything up onto an external HD, then re-formatting and starting from scratch. The only thing is if i do this, when i restore my files will the virus come back also?

I know that there is something in this log that apears to be the problem because when i try to post the log or even email it to myself so i can post it from a work computer it blocks me. I ended up having to copy it to a stick then bring it in to work.

Here is my Hijack this log:

Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.4
Scan saved at 11:19:12 AM, on 7/26/2010
Platform: Windows XP SP3 (WinNT 5.01.2600)
MSIE: Internet Explorer v8.00 (8.00.6001.18702)
Boot mode: Normal

LOG removed

I hope someone will be able to help me out with this one.

Ok so after spending quite some time reading a lot of other problems people have i think my problem could be my router.

From what i've read i think i just need to reset the router and hopefully everything will be ok? Does this sound like i'm on the right path. I did notice my LAN settings changed and the router name is a little different.

I will report back once i have given this a go (currently at work).

Ok so resetting the router did nothing to help my cause.

If anyone out there is able to read my log and help me out it would be greatly appreciated.

Hello if the Killer found and removed an infection it may have opened up some other files to be cleaned..
  • Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
    ESET OnlineScan
  • Click the ESET Online Scanner button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on Export to text file... to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Eset Smart Installer icon on your desktop.
  • Check the "YES, I accept the Terms of Use"
  • Click the Start button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Check Scan archives
  • Push the Start button.
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, push "List of found threats"
  • Push "Export to text file", and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
