Hi! :) Thank you for the help!

I uninstalled combofix and ran OTMoveit2.

Howeve I can't uninstall JRE. In my list of programs appears only Java ™ Update 3, and it doesn't have any kind of change/remove button.

Also the computer is not as fast as I thought. It seemed better, but I still have problems loading pages and programs. In order for a page link to work (it doesn't if I just double click), I discovered save target as might work, I then double click the icon saved on my desktop...and it may work. I don't get it why the pages don't load on normal click.

Ok then, thank you for the help. Just what section of the forum should I post for this problem then?
If it's nothing malware left then I don't know what it is...

Hi! I reopened this thread as the problem still seems to be there. The computer seemed to get a little faster at first, but now it's even worse than before. I can not load pages in IE, in Firefox they manage to load in the end but still very slow. The computer is also quite slow with programs, but especially with the Internet. I've done a scan again with Panda online antivirus and it still found bad stuff.

I don't think it's just a browser problem since the computer is quite slow too. I'm currently trying to load Kaspersky antivirus. I'll try to do an online scan with Kaspersky and post the log.

Hi! I ran SuperAntiSpyware and it seems it detected some more malware and removed it. For now the net generally seems to be a bit faster, but I don't know if it will last.

However, I still can not access links. None of the links posted in this thread work for me. When I saw it detected a trojan and dialer I thought that might be it, but the problem is still there.

What I'd like to know is what other pogram I might use to search for threats? I had used AVG Antispyware and it didn't detect the threats I now found with SuperAntiSpyware.

Your logs are clean, SAS only found cookies and left overs

You don't need to run any scans

Try this for your website problem

Download the HostsXpert 3.7 - Hosts File Manager.
  • Unzip HostsXpert 3.7 - Hosts File Manager to a convenient folder such as C:\HostsXpert
  • Click HostsXpert.exe to Run HostsXpert 3.7 - Hosts File Manager from its new home
  • Click "Make Hosts Writable?" in the upper right corner (If available).
  • Click Restore Microsoft's Hosts file and then click OK.
  • Click the X to exit the program.
  • Note: If you were using a custom Hosts file you will need to replace any of those entries yourself.


Is there anything else ?

Thank you! I tried Hostxpert, but the problem seems to remain the same.

I had already posted this in Web browsers section, but I didn't yet get an answer.

If there isn't any suggestion I might still try to follow here, then I'll post this in the XP section like you suggested.
