Hello all you sexy brainiacs. I've done something stupid and contracted a virus I can't get rid of. I have run the following programs:
CC Cleaner
Registry Mechanic
Spybot
Adaware
ZoneAlarm scan

I did this over the course of 2 days, and virtumondo was found and repaired, supposedly. Also found were these two DLLs which were showing as harmful in my spyprotector scan. One was removed successfully, the other returns. I remove it with hijack and it automatically comes back. I try removing it with spy protector and I get an error message. It is interfering with both IE and Firefox, in that searching through google, yahoo, or dogpile is near impossible, and I cannot load your forums (hence my kind friend here is posting in my place).

I run Windows XP, with service pack 2
Here is my Hijack log and my last Registry Mechanic log (I don't have the first one, sorry; I've run it twice.), with the troublesome dll bolded.

Thank you so very much.

Hello

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune.
This program is for XP and Windows 2000 onlyDouble-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
If you use Firefox browserClick Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
If you use Opera browserClick Opera at the top and choose: Select All

Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.




Please visit this web page for instructions for downloading and running ComboFix

http://www.bleepingc...to-use-combofix

This includes installing the Windows XP Recovery Console in case you have not installed it yet.

For more information on the Windows XP Recovery Console read http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314058.

Once you install the Recovery Console, when you reboot your computer, you'll see the option for the Recovery Console now as well. Don't select Recovery Console as we don't need it. By default, your main OS is selected there. The screen stays for 2 seconds and then it proceeds to load Windows. That is normal.

Post the log from ComboFix when you've accomplished that, along with a new HijackThis log.

I love this forum, and that includes all you guys. Thank you so very much for your help and for offering this great service and vast amount of information to the public for free. I refer this place to everyone that I know!

However, because I couldn't load your site, and had to rely on whining to friends to check this thread for me, I also asked (whined) several people to find me some more tech forums, until I found one that I could see and load myself. So I reposted my problem there (with new/more details, sorry!) and am in the process of receiving their help. They are also having me run combofix (though without the recovery installed; should I be alarmed?) and if you want to see the thread's progression it is Here.

After the combofix, I was able to run searches and load your forum again (yay!).

Just so this is clarified, you guys are always my number one choice, and I reposted my problem in another forum because of access issues, not because I mind waiting. And remember that brainiacs are sexy ^_~

I do have a question before you close the thread, if you would be obliging:
Is ATF Cleaner recommended over CC Cleaner, or in tandem to it? Or is CC Cleaner no longer recommended?

Again, Thank You.

Ah you are being helped over there by one of our helpers here. You are in good hands, don't worry. If you have posted at any other sites, please let them know you are being helped as it will save us time.

Is ATF Cleaner recommended over CC Cleaner,

Yes ATF is recommend over CCleaner. Personally you won't find many people here recommending CCleaner. ATF is really great.
