Not sure how long this is gonna stay on. I tried to run EWIDO scan this morning and something was bad wrong with the program. So I removed the program. I wanted to make sure it was completely gone, so tried to go in to registry and clean all traces out. Everytime I try to go to regedit, my computer restarts. Tried my Registry Mechanic program, computer restarts. Tried RegSeeker, computer restarts. HELP!! not sure what to do. :thumbsup:

This sounds like a virus. You'll have to run a virus scan to ensure that the system is clean.

Worst case, you'll have to slave your hard drive to another computer with a good antivirus program and scan it from there.

Try running ClamWin Portable from a flash drive to see if you can clean it. It's free from here: http://portableapps.com/apps/utilities/clamwin_portable
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Okay, did the clamwin scan and this is what it found.

See anything that might be causing my problem. Or do you have any other suggestions?

Just an FYI. Ewido is now AVG Antispyware.

Be sure to print out and follow the AVG Anti-Spyware Install-Scan Instructions for performing a scan in "SAFE MODE" and read the User Manual.

Okay, this just keeps getting crazier and crazier. My computer works fine as long as I am surfing the net, playing games, etc. But as soon as I try to scan for spyware, virus' etc or go to regedit it restarts. I d/l the avg anti-spyware as instructed. Set all settings, rebooted to safe mode and started the scan. 38 seconds into the scan, the computer restarted. This happened twice. Now what?

Please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". You may have performed some of these steps already. In step #9 there are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a log. (This is a self-extracting version which will automatically install HJT in the proper location.)

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT 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 HJT 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 HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

After posting a log 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 HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.
