I am running WindowsXP and IE*, both of which are current on updates. I use AVG antivirus and the firewall in my modem for security. I have run the antivirus scan, Ad-aware, Spybot and Malwarebytes with no luck. My last hope is Hijack-this. Not having used HJT but a few times in the past I was hoping someone may be able to identify the problem. I tried to post this with the log included but it failed to post. If anyone can help with this I will try to put the log up again.

Hi, let's see if this works.


We need a deeper look. Please go here....

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.

I am trying to do a new post as requested. When I have all of the information completed and attached and select "post topic" or "preview topic" I get a browser error that indicates the connection was reset during loading. This has happened both from IE8 and Mozilla. While trying to determine what was causing this in the tutorials I did get a notice concerning flood controls and did not know if that might be associated with my posting problem.

Some times reopening a topic too many times in a row will cause the 'flood." Create the topic enter the decription and any text you have, copy/paste the DDS log and post it. If you still have an issue then again create a topic ,,, type holding as the body and post it.

Then come back here and post your DDS log here. You can't attach anything here. Then I woll edit in your log there. We will go from that.

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic351558.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.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
