Hi there robin miller,
Your logs definitely look better. The two files you listed for me are fine, they are located in either a quarantine or system restore, both of which we will get rid off now.
Please delete these folders:
C:\Documents and Settings\Robin Miller\Doctor Web\Quarantine
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Recovery
And delete this file:
Which was infected with AdTool.Win32.MyWebSearch.bm
Optionally, I would also recommend uninstalling Morpheus through add or remove programs and deleting the folder itself (C:\program files\Morpheus) if you wish. Morpheus is a P2P program and while there are alot of good things surronding P2Ps' concept, alot of files that you can download through them are illegal and some possibly infected. It is absolutely up to you though ( you still need to delete morpheustoolbar.exe) .
And your logs are clean!
Now please download OTCleanIt
- Save it to your desktop.
- Double Click on OTCleanIt.exe, a window will appear.
- Please press the CleanUp! Button.
This will remove the tools we used during the process of cleaning your computer.
The below steps have some important tips on how to stay safe and keep up-to-date, so be sure to read it!Step 1. Flushing old Restore Points and creating a new one
Right-click on "My Computer." The "System Properties" dialogue box will appear, showing a number of tabs. From here you can reset System Restore and configure Automatic Updates.
First, click the System Restore tab.
* Check the box beside "Turn off System Restore"
* Click "Apply"
* At the prompt, click "Yes"
Wait while your system deletes existing Restore Points, this may take a few moments.
* Uncheck the box beside "Turn off System Restore"
* Click "Apply"
* At the prompt, click "Yes"
Your system will now create a new Restore Point.Step 2. Configuring Automatic Updates
Click the Automatic Updates
tab. Choose the update option that best suits your needs, but be sure that Automatic Updates is not turned off. Windows XP will now notify you and download important updates and security patches as they become available.
" to save your new settings and close the System Properties dialogue.Step 3. Preventing future infection
Below I have included a number of recommendations for how to protect your computer in order to prevent future malware infections. Please take these recommendations seriously; these few simple steps can stave off the vast majority of spyware problems.
In order to protect yourself against spyware, you should consider installing and running the following free
programs:Spybot-Search & Destroy
A tutorial on using Spybot to remove spyware from your computer may be found here
. Please also remember to enable Spybot's "Immunize" and "TeaTimer" features.SpywareBlaster
A tutorial on using SpywareBlaster to prevent spyware from ever installing on your computer may be found here
A tutorial on using SpywareGuard for realtime protection against spyware and hijackers may be found here
IE-SPYAD puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.http://www.spywarewa...uc/resource.htm
Make sure to keep these programs up-to-date
and to run them regularly
, as this can prevent a great deal of spyware hassle.
Please consider using an alternate browser. Mozilla's Firefox browser is fantastic
; it is much more secure than Internet Explorer, immune to almost all known browser hijackers, and also has the best built-in popup blocker (as an added benefit!) that I have ever seen. If you are interested, Firefox may be downloaded from here:http://www.mozilla.o...oducts/firefox/
Also make sure to run your antivirus software regularly, and to keep it up-to-date.
There are many programs that can be used for your protection, most falling within the three main categories of anti-virus, anti-spyware and firewall. Please be careful to never run more than one program of the same category in resident mode, as conflicts between the different programs can actually decrease your protection.

Hopefully this should take care of your problems! Good luck. Please post back and tell me if everything is OK, so that I may mark this thread as Resolved.
