Please help!

SYMPTOMS: When I logon, explorer.exe starts to consume 90-100%CPU. The hijackthis log below seems to have quite a few suspicious and unnecessary lines. Please help me get clean. I get no popups or browser hijacks.

ACTIONS TAKEN SO FAR: Safe mode scans using Norton Antivirus, then ewido, and completed all recommended actions. Then I followed all the steps descriobed in your preparation guide (34773.html), i.e. cleanout temporary files, scan with ad-aware and spybot, scan with housecall and McAfee Stinger (Stinger found nothing), and install the latest windows security updates.

Here is the hikackthis log.

Hi and welcome to Bleeping Computer! My name is Sam and I will be helping you. :thumbsup:

I apologize for the delay getting to your log, the helpers here are very busy.
If you still need help, please post a fresh Hijackthis log, in this thread, so I can help you with your Malware Problems.

If you have resolved this issue please let us know.
Posted Image If I have helped you in any way, please consider a donation to help me continue the fight against malware.


Failing to respond back to the person that is giving up their own time to help you not only is insensitive and disrespectful, but it guarantees that you will never receive help from me again. Please thank your helpers and there will always be help here when you need it!

Hi Sam,
Thanks a lot for your reply.
This problem has been largely solved, and I no longer need help on this issue.
I greatly appreciate the service you and other volunteers provide in this forum.
