When you computer is clean I strongly suggest you update to SP2.

http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/search/?sort=PN&alpha=WINDOWS+vista
Windows Vista Service Pack 1 support ended on 12/07/2011

For continued security support from Microsoft get the Service Pack 2.

Please download ComboFix from any of the links below, and save it to your desktop. For information regarding this download, please visit this web page: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Link 1
Link 2


* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop

IMPORTANT....

1. Close any open browsers.

2. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

3. Do not install any other programs until this if fixed.


How to : Disable Anti-virus and Firewall...
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic114351.html

Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • When finished, it will produce a report for you.
  • Please post the C:\ComboFix.txt
Note:
Do not mouse click ComboFix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall


Note: If you have difficulty properly disabling your protective programs, refer to this link --> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic114351.html

Please post the log and let me know what problem persists.

p.s. AVG may give you a message that the ComboFix file is corrupted.
Ignore it and run the program.

Let me know if you have any difficulties.
