Lately, I have been experiencing many problems with my computer. First of all, I had the thinkpoint error and managed to "remove" it using taskmanager. I believed that the virus was gone but I am not sure now. I did not have much problems later on but one day, I could not open my internet explorer, but I managed to get it right by deleting Iexplorer.exe (there were several existing in task manager for no reason.) Ever since then, my computer was extremely slow, internet explorer and windows explorer would stop responding frequently, and everything is going wrong! My internet at times, when I click to go on it, there would be this white randon windows(?) but immediately disappear and sometimes, internet explorer will not open on the first try. I use malwarebytes and now have avast but nothing seems to work. Also, suddenly google always makes me get redirected when going to the searched sites. When I happened to look at my task manager at start manager, I had several processes that were there and just disappear? (like rundll32.exe) I was going to use combofix but I thought about posting on this forum first so please help me! Thank you in advance.

edit: I forgot to write that I have windows 7 compaq CQ61-313US notebook
Also I am sorry for the not specific title.

Let me know if that went well.

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic360600.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.
