Hey everyone.

I've used this site many of times searching for answers for common virus removal. But never registered. I've used ComboFix on numberous computers to help find and solve some problems.

I'm running Vista and Last night I got attacked by a virus that sends out Viagra EMAILS/SPAM to everyone on my database. They found some amazing old emails aand names on the computer.

I rebooted in safe mode wiht networking. Ran MalwareBytes and found one little tracking PUM.Bad.Proxy I went into my WindowLive Mail aand changed the password. So I may or may not have solved that issue.

I'm also experiencing an alarming about of hangups from iexplorer.com and need to reboot. or restart the program. Been happenind for a while and got worse. I unistalled Adbobe Reader X (it hung every time... plus I have the actual program Adobe Accrobat 9.4) so don;t wnat as I usually want to edit them.

Alos I think I have a bunch of crap loading and I want to figure out what is slowing downt he machine a bit and clean it up. So maybe somebody can talk me through a HijackThis list and tell me what I can delete and what is wasting CPU time.
