You need to post your HJT log in the Malware Removal Forum
Since I don't know what is infecting my computer what do I put for a title?

Something like "Random Popups" would be fine. Include the same information about your problem in your post that you've included here.
Done, thank you.

Anyways, just wanted to register and post to say thank you for all the great info.

Not sure about that MSConfig problem, it could be fixed in the Windows XP forum possibly.

my pc is also being attacked by malware. It opens various pages in IE and firefox. I'm using AVG and it has found several trojans and viri which it doesn't seem to be able to remove. It has also found changes to several dll files, and registry mechanic seem to find hundreds of new dll files.
I downloaded malware bytes to try and remove it that way but it won't open the mbam-setup.exe file or even start the installation. I've already installed registry mechanic and Hijack This today so it seems strange that this is the only one affected- does anyone have any ideas what could be wrong?
I have a HijackThis log but I guess I should post that elsewhere.

Can you run it then ?
If not, try install it in safe mode, and run it there
If it still wont work, go post your HJT log in the Malware Removal forum

I was able to install malware bytes by changing the name, although it now will not let me actually run the program...changing the name of the program file (or running it in safe mode) hasn't helped this time. It won't even let me reinstall it without crashing the pc.
I'll persevere and will let you know if I get anywhere.

After reading some of the tutorials here I *think* I've managed to get my attack under control. I uninstalled AVG and put on Avast! 4. That seemed to detect a lot of the trojans that had invaded and took off a rootkit to boot. It was enough to allow me to install Malware Bytes, which also helped to remove yet more trojans.
Thanks so far!
I'm reasonably confident that things are back to normal but posting a HJT log give me a bit more confidence. I've also got a Malware Bytes log if interested?
