Hi everyone,
Got a newer version of the spyware / defender.exe protector trojan. i was able to bypass and shut it down by ending the process in the task manager, then ran avg and it kicked a couple files out. It was gone for 24 hours and the hidden files reactivated it. it rewrites your log in script to automatically load, and corrupts a lot of misc and program files. I logged into safe mode with networking and ran avg through cmd. it kicked 6 more files and fixed 2. I installed and ran malwarebytes .mbam and that kicked 25 more files. i took off avg after running it twice and not finding anything when malwarebytes found 25 probs. i updated java / and recieved panda cloud. as of now i don't encounter any problems, but my sec program is still blocking pop ups when i log in. I suspect there is still something in here. below is a list of hijack this log, if anyone sees anything and can help completely fix these bugs i would appreciate it. I've spent 6 hours to get it here.

not letting me run as admin. for hijack this. help with that and ill get report. thanks
