I was having problems getting to the McAfee website. I would get the message "the specified method is not supported" I also would get Google redirects. In addition, I had Mcafee antivirus and somehow I think it became corrupted as it says that I need to reinstall. I found your website through google (which is AWESOME btw) and I went through the malware guide. I am now able to get to the McAfee site. However, I'm still getting the mcafee reinstall message. It appears that the program is trying to reinstall and it gets to 100% but then the message appears again (my subscription is through 11/2010)

I just wanted to see if there was any more spy/mal/adware that I didn't get to. Steps taken before this point: My wife downloanded Ad-Aware and it removed some stuff-that didn't work- still was unable to get to the mcafee site. I uninstalled that and then downloaded stopzilla and paid for it- it removed more stuff but still couldn't get to the site. I found your website and went through the guide up to (not including) the rootkit step 4. Now, I'm able to acess the site. I believe I had a trojan. The MBAM logfile is below. Basically, I would like for you to check my logs to make sure i've gotten rid of everything. If I have, then I have to contact AOL to see why I can't get my virus scan back. Thank you very much in advance!

i'm sorry for replying before someone answers but I just wanted to give an update. I was able to reinstall McAfee VirusScan successfully, so i appears a least on the surface that i'm all set. However, i'll still be interested in you checking my logs and/or any further steps I should take to make sure. In the interim, I'm off to the stopzilla site to get my money back! :)

Thank you.
