Most of the hijackthis log entries are required to run a computer and removing essential ones can potentially cause serious damage to your system. HijackThis relies on experts to interpret the log entries and determine what needs to be fixed. You should NOT fix anything yourself without consulting a expert as to what to fix.

Now that you've posted a Hijack Log, the HijackThis Team will help you clean the viruses from your computer.
Please be patient tho as they are a very busy group.
If you haven't heard back from them in 5 days, go to this topic, Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?, and carefully follow all directions.

After posting a log you should not make any changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

If you want to keep trying to remove the malware before posting the Hijack This log, use the programs in the links below.

Please download http://www.atribune.org/content/view/24/2/
to your desktop.
Double-click VundoFix.exe to run it.
Click the Scan for Vundo button.
Once it's done scanning, click the Remove Vundo button.
You will receive a prompt asking if you want to remove the files, click YES
Once you click yes, your desktop will go blank as it starts removing Vundo.
When completed, it will prompt that it will reboot your computer, click OK.

Note: It is possible that VundoFix encountered a file it could not remove.
In this case, VundoFix will run on reboot, simply follow the above
instructions starting from "Click the Scan for Vundo button." when
VundoFix appears at reboot.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.


Post a Hijack This log in the Hijack This Forum by following the directions in the link below if the programs above have not removed ALL malware. DO NOT post the log in this forum.
