I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a OTListIt2 log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a OTListIt2 log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

Appreciate your help ! Have run thru all the steps in the spyware removal section. Now ready to post logs, problems etc. Do I need to post these to the original post or create a new post.

Thanks

If you have some topic already open at Malware Forum, post the logs there, if not, start a new topic there.

Got this problem resolved but don't know what happened. Found that NOD has a problem with one of their modules that caused IE and Opera not to run. Reset that option, all was well with the browsers. Still had two problems that I worked on for a while but did not resolve. Malwarebytes still would not pull the updates and Nod would not pull new database. Finally said that I would look at Restore Points. Had one about a month old and restored to it. Things began to come back and got all problems resolved. Just lucky on this one. Appreciate all the help.

I'd still post at Malware forum.
If the computer is/was infected, system restore won't cure it. It may patch it temporarily.
