    Hello arun8283 and welcome to Computer Hope Forum. My name is Superdave but you can just call me SD. I will be helping you out with your particular problem on your computer. I am working under the guidance of one of the specialist of this forum so it may take a bit longer to process your logs.

    1. I will be working on your Malware issues. This may or may not solve other issues you have with your machine.
    2. The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
    3. If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.
    4. Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans while I am helping you.
    5. It is important that you reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
    6. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.
    7. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

    The first thing I will need you to do is this:

    Download Disable/Remove Windows Messenger to the desktop to remove Windows Messenger.

    Do not confuse Windows Messenger with MSN Messenger because they are not the same. Windows Messenger is a frequent cause of popups.

    Unzip the file on the desktop. Open the MessengerDisable.exe and choose the bottom box - Uninstall Windows Messenger and click Apply.

    Exit out of MessengerDisable then delete the two files that were put on the desktop.

    Download ComboFix by sUBs from one of the below links.  Be sure to save it to the Desktop.

    link # 1
    Link # 2

    Close any open web browsers (Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc) before starting ComboFix.

    Temporarily disable your anti-virus, and any anti-spyware real-time protection before performing a scan. Click this link to see a list of security programs that should be disabled and how to disable them.

    Vista users Right-click combofix.exe and select Run as Administrator and follow the prompts.
    Double-click combofix.exe and follow the prompts.
    When finished, ComboFix will produce a log for you.
    Post the ComboFix log and a new HijackThis log in your next reply.

    NOTE: Do not mouseclick ComboFix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

    Remember to re-enable your anti-virus and anti-spyware protection when ComboFix is complete.
    Intel(R) Core (TM) i3-3220 CPU 3.30 GHz 8.0 Gb RAM Windows 8.1 with a dual boot to Windows XP  Home with SP3, Comodo  with Windows Firewall & Windows Defender
