Hello Boopme!

Thanks for jumping on board here with me. I appreciate your quick response. All logs went well. Today has been a quiet day on the unit compared to most. I have been taking it slow and sneaking programs in here and there...lol. It is almost like there are times "It" is awake and other times asleep. I had an error this morning that said, it lost the "autochk.exe" and would be skipped. Windows would just run circles at log on and did not succeed. I tried coping the file off of the xp Cd and It didn't take. Ended up repairing.

This is the first time I have used Zone Alarm. The last firewall I had was Personal Firewall. It was shredded along with malwarebytes, and several anti-virus. When I do a fresh install of Windows and at the install screen on the desktop with ohhh, about 10 minutes left, two minimized black windows will flash down where the taskbar would be. This also happens with programs being installed, but larger windows. They will flash real quick and maybe leave a black shadow that disappears as soon as it comes up. I have used Iolo and Drive erase to scrub the drive. I just really felt like this thing was in the MBR. With Iolo the start up screen would change as time went on. Talked about Free Dos and Turbo Disk. Sometimes it would have 10 questions before running the scrub asking about installing 20 files and 20 clones, asking about an echo, etc. It was odd that these things didn't show up all the time. I don't know if "It" was manipulating the programs on the disk or what. I find it hard to believe, but it sure seemed like it. Programs downloaded off the net, cd or a sandisk would go threw the whole process and then just fall apart. I would find pieces of the programs in folders like "Recycler". The scan was running but, it wasn't really. I came back clean all the time. Malwarebytes was the first sign that we were infected. It threw a huge fit.

Not getting the MBR cleaned I thought the infection had to go deeper so I have flashed the bios on this computer and bought a new hard-drive for one of the other computers only left in disappointment. The way this thing has infected computers in the house I wouldn't doubt if it got my microwave also...just kidding.

I have ran Gemer in the past and didn't know what to do with it. This log looks a lot more active than what I have seen in the past. I have followed several threads on Bleeping trying to get rid of this. This attempt I started with a clean computer installing service pack 3 only (for the reason normally I get all updates and "It" crashes the system) and Autoruns. Autoruns seemed to run smoother than anything in the past keeping it at bay and then ran the unhooker. So thats a summary of where it is at. Hope I didn't ramble to much. Thank You again for your help.

Very grateful,
