Internet Explorer Script errors when IE is not even open.

So a couple weeks back I got a nasty virus. It was a Vista Anti Virus pop up that took over my computer and was trying to sell me their product. After a while I was able to get rid of that virus. Recently within the past 2 days another virus popped up that was very similar except this time it was named differently to Vista Total Security 2011. Again, I managed to get rid of it(however it shifted around all of my desktop icons and removed/added others), but I'm thinking that there are other things being left behind.

I have been getting Internet Explorer script errors popping up on screen randomly when I never even use internet explorer. I have even gone into the settings for internet explorer to turn off the option of showing script errors. The error says access is denied and it shows a url of newtopsite.net. I think there was another site but that was the url it showed for the recent error.

Also the oddest thing I have noticed is that every now and then while browsing the web I will hear some audio begin, it seems to always be the same(edit: I just heard a new one so never mind about it always being the same). That seems to only happen when I'm browsing around on Firefox.

Overall there seems to be a lot of weird things going on and I am really looking for some help.

Edit: A new script error recently happened and shortly after I received a blue screen.

Hi there I will need to have a look at your system first :)

Download aswMBR.exe ( 511KB ) to your desktop.

Double click the aswMBR.exe to run it

On completion of the scan click save log, save it to your desktop and post in your next reply


Download OTL to your Desktop
  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
  • Select All Users
  • Under the Custom Scan box paste this in

    %systemroot%\*. /mp /s
    hklm\software\clients\startmenuinternet|command /rs
    hklm\software\clients\startmenuinternet|command /64 /rs

  • Click the Quick Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
  • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
  • Post both logs
