Hi all. First off, I must say "thank you" for even reading this thread. Many thanks, actually.

I'm doing this legwork for a good friend. He told me he had issues with his laptop, in particular, when he was on the internet. In fear of making things worse, I downloaded some utilities on my personal computer and put them on a flash drive for transfer. I didn't want to use the internet on his laptop and come up with fresh malware. I tell you this because I have no idea how the laptop was before.

I scanned it with AVG 2011, Panda Antivirus, and MalwareBytes (all updated) and only came across some cookies.

To back track, when I first booted up the machine, I noticed a shortcut on the desktop titled "Launch STOPzilla." The shortcut featured a generic "window" icon usually reserved for executables. Not knowing what STOPzilla was, as I had never come across it before, I researched it a little and found it was no better than removal tools I was familiar with. To make a long story short, after running my scans on AVG, Panda, and MalwareBytes, I went into the control panel and removed all instances of STOPzilla.

It was after that I felt confident enough to launch Google Chrome, the default browser. I actually wrote this thread from his laptop and report no slow downs on the internet, but I want to make sure nothing malicious is on here before I return it to him. I must tell you that the laptop runs much faster ever since the scans and removing STOPzilla, so maybe that was the source of the problem. I also added the AdBlock Plus extension, for what it's worth.

Without further ado, below is the contents of the DDS.txt file. Thanks again!
