Hello, Welcome to BleepingComputer.

Important security issue

http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/search/?sort=PN&alpha=WINDOWS+vista
Support for Windows Vista without any service packs has ended on April 13, 2010.
Windows Vista Service Pack 1 support ended on 12/07/2011

For continued security support from Microsoft get the Service Pack 2.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/935791
===

Critical vulnerabilities have been identified in Adobe Flash Player v11.3.300.264 and earlier versions... being exploited in the wild in active targeted attacks...

Get the latest Flash Player

On the top of the page you will be given an opportunity to download the version for your operating system.
Make sure you select appropriate version.

You will also have an option to install the Free! McAfee Security Scan Plus Un-check the box if you are NOT using McAfee's virus protection software.

For the users of Internet Explorer download version 11.
Flash Player 11 (64 bit)
Flash Player 11 (32 bit)
===

Get the latest version of the Adobe Reader.
http://get.adobe.com/reader/
Before your download I suggest you unckeck the box on the top right "Yes, install McAfee Security Scan Plus - optional" this is not required if you are not a McAfee subscriber. While the installation is in progress you can also deny the installation of any other programs that may be suggested.

When installed remove your old version of the Reader using the Add/Remove Programs applet if present.

  • Please post the content of that log file with your next answer.

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

Hi, I did the following:

Updated Vista. Did not have latest service pack as I recently re-installed the software, hoping to catch all the issues with that. For some reason the Vista SP2 was not in the list of 100+ updates I installed. Or it went wring with that update...

Updated Adobe Flash

Updated Adobe Reader. The linked site kept freezing so I uninstalled the reader I had (8.1.0) and then googled for it. Then the exact same site would let me install the latest version.

Ran AdwCleaner. After restart I got a notice in the lower right of the screen saying that google blocked an attempt from another programme to change my default search settings. Don't know wheter it is relevant, but thought I would mention it.

If all is well:

If you decide to keep the AdwCleaner tool make sure delete your version and download the latest before running it.

Delete the other tools we used.
You can Keep the DDS tool as most forum will ask to see a log before suggesting a fix.

Thanks, I did these steps. During the ComboFix part, I got a notice to disable AVG, so I did. I afterwards turned it back on, and noticed that also Windows Defender was off. AVG I was able to turn back on, but when I try to start Windows Defender, I get an error message:

Application failed to initialize: 0x800106ba. A problem caused Windows
Defender service to stop. To start the service, restart your computer or
search Help and Support on how to start the service manually.

I was able to turn Windows Defender back on via the Security Centre.

Anu thoughts?
