Hello, Just got here about 15 minutes ago, I'm DESPERATE for any help, As I have heard very very highly of you guys.

So, Let me tell you the problems I've been having (I atleast think they are related) A while ago (2 weeks) I was browsing the internet and the second I clicked a link, BAM, My NoScript gives me a blank page with the link of something like hxxp://pixelstatservice.com/<Random numbers and letters every time>... Apparently this is a browser redirect of some kind as it redirects to porn sites or bass fishing sites.. What i'm trying to say is it's random every time, And it's very annoying, Before anyone asks, I already have combofix, Hijack this, Avira Anti virus, Malwarebytes anti malware, SUPERantispyware, CC cleaner, Advanced system care, And Spybot search and destroy.. I bet all you guys are glad i didn't have to continue, Anyway, NONE of all of those scanners, Has found this redirect, I'm about to pull my hair out on this, I've checked the HOSTS file, I've done just about everything.

Jesus, Now for the NEXT Problem...

My svchost appears to crash on a regular, Just randomly, Bink! "Generic host process 32 has stopped responding and needs to close" Or something of the like, It's upsetting me cause the themes go bonkers and what not, And i don't know if this is the right section, But it seems my Hotkeys have stopped working... You might ask what do you mean by "Hotkeys" Well, It's the Fast forward, Stop, Play, Rewind, Etc, On my Logitech G15, And the buttons on my headset do not work either, I think i have narrowed it down to HID Input Service as that will not launch, Error code: 126, The specified module cannot be found (Or something like that)

I'm begging for help on the browser redirect though, It's driving me insane, The other problems arn't that important..

Windows XP Professional 32 Bit
Windows X RC Build 7100 (Expired)

Please help.. I'm at my wits end here and a Nike shoe looks like it could solve all my problems in one sweep! These problems are with Windows XP side.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<==

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then post back here and we will provide you with further instructions.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic344405.html 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.
