I tried to scan in safe mode but my computer went huge and was off the screen in places. Like half of the AVG scanner was off screen so it wouldn't work right, I had to alt tab to get out of avg because the X was gone and the scan button was off screen.
Have your tried doing your scans in "SAFE MODE"?
If your running Win XP/2000, download and scan with AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 in "SAFE MODE".
(This is Ewdio 4.0 renamed. If you already have Ewido installed, please update to this version which has a special "clean driver" for removing persistent malware.) Be sure to print out the AVG Anti-Spyware Install-Scan Instructions and read the User Manual.
Then perform these online Virus scans: Trend Micro Housecall <- Use "Autoclean" and manually delete what it can't clean.
F-Secure Online Scanner <- Be sure to follow the directions on the F-Secure page for proper Installation.
[Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component.]

When I ran RootKitRevealer I tried to save the long and it had an error and had to close and didn't save the log and I'm not waiting on another scan today... -_-
Hi "Cool" :
I do NOT know what "components" are in that "Charter Security Suite" provided
by F-Secure, but since 1 and possibly 2 antiSPYWARE programs will NOT detect
everything, would advise you to use a 3rd, called the FREE version of
"SUPERantispyware" available from http://www.superantispyware.com .
IF you want to check for "rootkits", that could "hide" a keylogger, there are
some FREE antiROOTKIT programs, such as :
1) RootkitRevealer, available from :
2) AVG Anti-Rootkit, available from :
Do NOT know if your "Security Suite" includes F-Secure's Blacklight
available from http://www.f-secure.com/blacklight !?

Uh... I just tryed again on the safemode stuff and every scanner I opened was off screen so I'm not sure what to do... I had to alt tab them all and close them by right clicking the taskbar...
The Windows operating system protects files when they are being accessed by an application or a program. Using Safe Mode reduces the number of modules requesting files to only the essentials to make your computer functional. This in turn reduces the number of hiding places for malware, making it easier to find and delete the offending files. Using anti-malware tools in Safe Mode also speeds up the scanning process.
Thus, scanning in safe mode is better. However, sometimes the settings on a pc make it difficult or do not allow the user to access all the buttons on some programs while in this mode. If that happens you need to scan in normal mode rather than not scan at all.
