Posted 17 December 2010 - 07:02 PM

I am experiencing problems with my pc and it is showing serious signs of an infection. More specifically, it directs me to a fake walmart and when I open IE Explorer and and will not allow me to access Windows Update. When I ran Malware bytes, it found Rootkit.agent and Trojan.dropper. I was abled to run RSIT, but not DDS or GMER. I have successfully downloaded both DDS and GMER, but when I attempt to run them they hang the machine indefinately (i.e. overnight). I have attached the HJT Log for review.

Is there anyone that can help me with the removal of this virus? Any and all help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance...
