Though I have avast as my anti-virus, I have non-active malware programs I use when things just don't seem right. Through these programs, I have removed a number of trojans, backdoors, adware and other items I did not even understand. My main browser is Opera, though I have also tried to update Internet Explorer to IE9 RC. I can no longer get Internet Explorer to perform and go on line. Through internet searches, I attempted to use information from other forums without success. Though I tried to be careful, I may have compounded the problem when I thought I understood what I was doing. Since I do not understand it, I have stayed out of the Registry except to use CCleaner (I removed all IObit programs).
When I tried to submit a Hijackthis report to you, Hijackthis was grayed out, when I tried to "run as administrator" and Hijackthis would not complete a full scan without this feature!
I am using 32 bit Windows Vista Version 6.0 (Build 6002: Service Pack 2). I am not sure I removed all of the malware or if this is just registry related or damage I have done trying to fix things. Knowing how complicated this may be and understanding your work load, I am willing to wait (more or less patently) until you can get to this case! Thank you for your time and consideration on my case!
