Hi Guys,

My PC was freezing up after being in Windows for a few minutes.
It wouldnt freeze if i booted up in safe mode.
I did a system restore and am now able to get back into windows normally.
I have scanned my PC with NOD32 which picked up and cleaned a trojan and am currently running scans with Avast and Spybot.

Can someone help me clear my PC of any left over spyware/malware/viruses?

I have pasted my hijackthis log below.

Thanks very much!

Hi and Welcome to the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs Forum,

My name is TechExtreme and I am here to help you!

While I am helping you clean your computer, please do not run any tools, other than what I direct you to run. By not running any other tools than what I direct you to run, we can make the task of cleaning your computer quicker and easier. Some programs can interfere with others and make the recovery process take a much longer period of time.

Please perform all of the steps in the order I give them to you and do not proceed if you do not understand my directions. I will be happy to answer any questions or clarify anything you are unsure of.

Please copy and paste all logs into your post unless directed otherwise. Please do not re-run any programs I suggest. If you encounter problems please stop and tell me about it.

When your computer is clean I will inform you that your logs are clean and I will also provide you with detailed suggestions for prevention of any further infection.

After 3 days if your topic is not replied to I will assume it has been abandoned and I will close it.

Again I would like to remind you to make no further changes to your computer unless I direct you to do so. The tools required to clean your computer will be based on its current state and any changes might delay my ability to help you.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:
  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. 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. Post both logs (no need to zip attach.txt).
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.

Information on A/V control HERE

Please download GMER from one of the following locations and save it to your desktop:

* Main Mirror
This version will download a randomly named file (Recommended)
* Zipped Mirror
This version will download a zip file you will need to extract first. If you use this mirror, please extract the zip file to your desktop.

* Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
* Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.
* Double-click on the randomly named GMER file (i.e. n7gmo46c.exe) and allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
* Note: If you downloaded the zipped version, extract the file to its own folder such as C:\gmer and then double-click on gmer.exe.
Posted Image

* GMER will open to the Rootkit/Malware tab and perform an automatic quick scan when first run. (do not use the computer while the scan is in progress)
* If you receive a WARNING!!! about rootkit activity and are asked to fully scan your system...click NO.
* Now click the Scan button. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
* When the scan is finished, click the Save... button to save the scan results to your Desktop. Save the file as gmer.log.
* Click the Copy button and paste the results into your next reply.
* Exit GMER and re-enable all active protection when done.

-- If you encounter any problems, try running GMER in Safe Mode.

I've included dds.txt in the zip file along with attach.txt and the GMER log (because of character limit)because i cannot attach more than one file it seems...
also, i've noticed that one of the culprits belongs to My Start Incredibar and is stopping me from navigating to specific sites in chrome and firefox.
I've previously followed a guide to remove My Start Incredibar specifically which got rid of it for a day but now it's back.

Please find the GMER log below:

Hi epiceye,

I'm sorry but I'm not seeing your logs. Let's go ahead and post the contents of each one in their own separate reply window. That way I know and you also know the contents are here and viewable.

Hi Techextreme,
Thanks for your assistance up to this point but we have decided to format the machine instead and start fresh.
Thanks for all your help.

Have a great day!
