    unlovedworrior, we appreciate the help but you are trying to do repairs on infected files. It kinda defeats the purpose........

    green tea you have something going on that I think is a fairly new infection. In the ESET log notice this entry C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask     .exe <<-- The space between qttask and .exe


    Download RenV.exe to your Desktop
    • Double click on RenV.exe
    • The program will search your System drive to locate any .exe files with spaces in the name, and will produce a log.
    • Save the log as Log.txt on your Desktop
    • Please attach this file to your reply (Do not copy and paste)
    Note: The RenV.exe may look like it is doing nothing. Just let it run as it will complete and produce the log.

    Proceed with evilfantasy's advice, skip Superantispyware, and continue with other programs.

      Hi guys, I rebooted to normal mode after my last post, and had to reinstall SuperAntiSpyware again. Then after that, I rebooted to safe mode and did the SAS scan overnight.

      It completed and here is the new SAS log.

      I can only work on this during the evening (since I work during the day), so I really appreciate the fact that Broni's in the same timezone as me, and dedicating time to helping us. The same goes to all you guys as well. :D

      I will start working on Evilfantasy's suggestion.

        Ok, just did this. A log appeared instantly after I clicked "Run". Does that mean everything is fine or do I have to leave that log open for a while?

        RenV didn't show anything, please right click and delete it from the desktop.

        I think Broni may agree it is a good time for a Hijackthis log.

          Currently running Vundofix. I will follow through with VirtumundoBegone, and then do the Hijackthis log (as initially suggested by Broni).

          Please let me know if I should do otherwise. Thanks

            Ugh, I did the remove Vundo, but it says one of the files couldn't be remove, and that it had to reboot. So I did that, but I couldn't get back into Safe mode.

            I did the F8 tapping, but it just rebooted normally. I tried restarting several times but it loaded normally.

            So I login into my normal computer mode, and the Vundofix window appeared. I forgot to do "Scan for Vundo" again, but instead just did "Remove Vundo". Then it told me to reboot.

            And same scenario, I can't get back to safe mode.

            Look in C:\vundofix.txt for the log.

            Go ahead and post a Hijackthis log also.

              Here is the Vundofix log.

              I will now run Hijackthis in normal computer mode

                You have a nasty one on there for sure.

                If you already have combofix delete it and download a new copy.

                Please download Combofix by sUBs from either here or here

                IMPORTANT - Combofix.exe MUST be saved to your your Desktop.
                • Close any open Web browsers. (Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc)
                • Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with Combofix. <-- IMPORTANT
                • Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
                  • From the keyboard select 1 and press Enter[/COLOR]
                  • When finished, it will produce a log for you.
                  • Post that log in your next reply.
                  Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running.
                  The scan will temporarily disable your desktop.
                  If interrupted it may leave your computer frozen.
                  If this occurs, please reboot to restore the desktop.

                  You didn't use Last Known Good Configuration, at any point,  did you?

                    I have never used Combofix before. How can I check to see if all the antivirus/antispyware programs are disabled? I just exited SAS, and the Norton Antivirus icon that usually appears in my taskbar did not appear when I login this time.

                    You didn't use Last Known Good Configuration, at any point,  did you?

                    No, I've been in safe mode all this time. Except now I'm back in normal mode, since I couldn't get into Safe mode. Is there any other way to go to safe mode if the F8 key doesn't work?

                    .................

                    Going to do Combofix now

                      Sorry guys, more problems. I ran Combofix, and then it told me to allow it to reboot. So I didn't touch anything and let the computer reboot.

                      I login and the Combofix screen said it was now Preparing a log, and not to run any programs. I was waiting for the result, when this window "RUNDLL" pops up saying that that particular program was not found. Also, SuperAntiSpyware started up automatically. AND then I got an alert from Norton Antivirus saying that "Malicious Script detected", that "your computer is halted and needs to do something about this script: C:\ComboFix\SvcDrv.vbs"

                      I don't know what to do. Is there a way to disable the Antivirus/antimalware programs and KEEP them disable even after the computer reboots??
