Well i see you've gone home for the night sorry i couldn't help. I had a reason for asking you about Super Anti-Spyware as i had a problem with the new build "i used to beta test" Anyways you can go through your hijack log and inquire about those empty files by going to the lower left corner and clicking the appropriate icon. Go through each one, just be careful about any deletions you plan on making.. :)

Thanks..

If you want to do some extra cleaning you can use your CCleaner application. This will give you a clean surface for future installations. The feature is called Drive Wiper its located in tools, open tools to the Drive Wiper click on it there you will be given 4 choices, 1 pass 3 passes 7 passes 35 passes. I wipe my hard drive regularly for two reasons, privacy and a clean surface to work on, you can set the wiper accordingly. I use 1 pass for more than once a week 3 passes once every two weeks. You'll be surprised at the amount of space you'll free up on your hard drive.. :)

Thanks..

There are some other scans we can run but I'm not qualified to use them, i can try to guild you through them but i feel we should wait for permission..

Thanks..

Sounds like your machine is running well enough to get you through another day? If so lets do this, follow this link and start a new thread. They'll see it you'll be put in the queue and should have somebody there to help you before long. I'm very happy to have been able to work with you it was my pleasure.

Teros,

The steps given to you by turnorburn are not sufficient to even come close to diagnosing a potential Malware infection. This is precisely why we do not allow non-trained staff members to assist people in the Malware Removal forum. Unfortunately you posted in an OS forum which doesn't have the same protections in place.

If you believe you may still be infected, please open a new thread in the proper forum after following that forum's guidelines. For now, this thread is closed.
