I think I was infected and still might be.

I had reason to believe there was a keylogger on my computer because my hotmail account was comprimised and spam was being sent out.  I have AVG Internet Security running all the time.  Yesterday, I ran Malwarebytes which found several things and removed them though I could find nothing saying any were a keylogger.  I then ran adwcleaner, JRT and Combofix allowing each to do their defaults in that order.  Several things were found and deleted.

 

Today I started a full scan running Malwarebytes and Winpatrol keeps giving me the message that the program associated with .url is attempting to be changed from "/system32/ieframe.dll, OpenURL%" to "rundll32.exe ieframe.dll, OpenURL%.  This does not look like a change that Mawarebytes would make without a warning so I suspect  there may still be something in here.  I have been denying the change.

 

I am running Windows XP SP3 and it is fully updated.  I normally use the newest Firefox beta as my browser but occasionally use IE8 and Chrome.

 

There is another computer on this network, should I be worried it is infected also?

 

I would appreciate it if you could give me some advice.

Hello jefferysitz,

Your new topic here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/508728/dds-and-combofix-logs-as-requested/ is missing the logs.

Note: Please DO NOT run ComboFix again unless specifically instructed to do so by a team member.

Now that your logs are properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.
From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.
Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
The current wait time is 1 - 2 days and ALL logs are answered.
If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.
To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
