well, I woke my comp up yesterday and someone had messaged me on msn and i just closed his message then i started getting messages from everyone on my list saying i was messaging them a link... so i d/loaded spysweeper and cleaned it... but it was still messaging people on my msn list. so i then downloaded spydoctor and the trial doesn't fix the problems but it shows where they are... which i don't have a copy of. and i decided to find the problems myself... but there's something called "taskkill" that i couldn't get my regedit to open nor my compmgmt.msc to stay open... everytime i opened it it just reclosed... oh same for my msconfig. so i restarted in safe mode and they would open so i reran spydoctor and i got rid of the instances of the problems from the spydoctor.. then then i rebooted and now that task kill has set itself on my explorer.exe and my Iexplorer.exe it says that my cryptography is disabled or not running but i restarted it time and time again but when i open my task manager and run explorer.exe it opens then closes... i have no icons on my desktop either so i'm having to run everything from my task manager.. and i can't open IE to run the update search thing... and when i try to run the wuauclt.exe to update my comp it opens then closes as well... and i did everything that was stated in the prep guide and heres what i got from the hijackers log

You have no active AntiVirus!

Get the free AVG AntiVirus 7.5 install it, check for updates and run a full scan

AVG 7.5 - http://free.grisoft.com/freeweb.php/doc/2/

Download Hoster from here:
Run the program Hoster and press Restore Original Hosts, OK, and Exit Program.


Download Superantispyware


Install it and double-click the icon on your desktop to run it.
It will ask if you want to update the program definitions, click Yes.
Under Configuration and Preferences, click the Preferences button.
Click the Scanning Control tab.
Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked:
o Close browsers before scanning
o Scan for tracking cookies
o Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
o Please leave the others unchecked.
o Click the Close button to leave the control center screen.
On the main screen, under Scan for Harmful Software click Scan your computer.
On the left check C:\Fixed Drive.
On the right, under Complete Scan, choose Perform Complete Scan.
Click Next to start the scan. Please be patient while it scans your computer.
After the scan is complete a summary box will appear. Click OK.
Make sure everything in the white box has a check next to it, then click Next.
It will quarantine what it found and if it asks if you want to reboot, click Yes.
To retrieve the removal information for me please do the following:
o After reboot, double-click the SUPERAntispyware icon on your desktop.
o Click Preferences. Click the Statistics/Logs tab.
o Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
o It will open in your default text editor (such as Notepad/Wordpad).
o Please highlight everything in the notepad, then right-click and choose copy.
Click close and close again to exit the program.
Please paste that information here for me with a new HijackThis log.
