My Avast expired and immediately got hit with the rogue "antivirus software" thing.

Can't open any programs in regular mode. Rebooted to safe mode in admin. user. I did a flashflush, ran TFC, ran mbam as a quick scan & full scan which showed nothing. I've now reran the OTL a second time though the 2nd time I didn't get the extra log. I'm attaching the logs generated thus far.

Thank you for your help,

MissyLu

sidenote: I have to use a flashdrive to get all these programs/reports back to the computer I'm using now.

I apologize for not checking the list of possible infections and fixes thoroughly. I see this one in the list and am going to start with those instructions now. I'll post any problems shortly.

I followed those instructions and it did detect 4 or 5 issues. I've now purchased the full Avast suite. I hope I've done the right thing.

Ohh not so fast. Paypal rejected my payment (though there is nothing wrong with my payment source) and so my coverage stopped and the computer is infected yet again only now, the way I fixed it won't work this time. :D
