Hey -

I got a virus the other day that had one of the fake virus security icons that pop up in the task bar. It shut down all my spyware and malware programs except AVG which couldnt find the virus. I ran my computer in safe mode and scanned with MBAM and Superantispyware and both found like six trojans in the registry and my personal documents folder. I erased the trojans and reran and have ran smithfraud fix but my computer is still doing weird things. It's running slow, I can't use any browsers except Firefox (they wont connect to the internet) and my anti-malware programs can't update their definitions. My computer also says i am missing 2 .dll files when I boot it. I also get weird alerts in other languages and my clock is reading in military time. Not sure what to do at this points so any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Oh yeah, I have also ran OTL

Thanks - ZS

Those reports do us no good in this forum.
We are not allowed to use them here because we are not trained on their use.

I suggest you go to the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal 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 the reguested logs in THAT forum. If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

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).
