Friends, thanks for your help. The last time you or someone  tried to help, we were stopped by our Hijack This' inability to open or view my host file.   I am dealing with a long standing infection that has removed my control from my registry where I have found many suspicious files...too numerous to mention.  And when I try to delete these files [like IE5]  I get a message saying 'certain values cannot be deleted'.     

 And I ran Kaspersky's rescue disc which found at least eight instances of 'Trojan Arc BZ'

And claimed to remove it.   But it also showed a yellow caution sign that read 'DIsABLED' on the KRD report.

 

I have reformated this Windows 7 Home Premium, Pavillion desktop [wired through a Linksys e2500 router with wireless disabled ] over twenty times trying to change things...delete suspicious things to no avail.   Windows Update recently downloaded something called Windows Wireless Router Module which I immediately disabled.      Some of my passwords have been changed without my knowledge.

 

I have a Windows workstation listed on my computer properties sheet.   I have used every popular antivirus program but based on my observation they are all rendered useless in the registry.  I am desperate to resolve this problem which has been going on for years.   It almost seems as if my some unknown person knows what I am doing and negates my efforts.

 

I have good reason to think that the addition of an NT side by side has made my PC a client computer on an unknown network.   I need help and will cooperate fully to regain control of my computer.  

 

Thank you for reading this.  I'll wait.....

Hello, judging from what you have done I would suspect a boot sector infection. We need a deeper look at the machine. Please repost the above info with a DDS log from here.
 
Please follow this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.

Thank you

Now that your log is 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 - 5 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.
