Posted 11 June 2012 - 01:59 AM

I am having serious issues with a laptop I've recently acquired. I cannot get the Start Up Repair to work at all (It either goes back to the selection option for "Repair Your PC" or "Start Windows Normally" or loads straight into Windows after being selected)and Internet Explorer and annoying ads run invisibly in the background. I have a HJT log available. Would LOVE to get some help sorting this thing out, as it's a pretty good system... just seems Loaded down with viruses and SAS, MBAM, and Avira say there's nothing there... Here is the HJT logfile. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Hello, Welcome to BleepingComputer.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps.
===

HijackThis is not able to provide accurate information for 64 bit systems.
In your case we need to see a DDS Log.
I would remove HijackThis using the Add/Remove Programs list.

Please download and run this DDS Scanning Tool. Nothing will be deleted. It will just give me some additional information about your system.

  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links if you no longer have it available. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explanation about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run.

Please just paste the contents of the DDS.txt log in your next post. DO NOT attach the log.
===

Third party programs if not up to date can be an open door for an infection.

Please run this security check for my review.

Download Security Check by screen317 from here.
  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.
===

Please post the logs for my review.

Hello, Welcome to BleepingComputer.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.



Thanks for the reply but I managed to get Windows 7 Repair discs from another system of mine to successfully load up, delete the infected partition and then install the factory image Dell provided back on the computer. The computer is now working perfectly and has been given clean reports on all my software (I excluded hijack this since it doesn't work well with 64 bit systems), but I will run the scans with the software you provided and then get back in touch with you ASAP. I appreciate your help!
