I did the very first thing on the list which was "Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools, and then click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).", opened the browser and it froze the computer again. I rebooted it.

Also, I noted that before the computer froze, a box popped up asking about turning on google toolbar, but I was unable to answer the question since it had froze. I don't know if it has anything to do with the problem or not, but thought it may be worth mentioning.

Please print out these instructions, or copy them to a Notepad file. It will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps..

uninstall some programs

NOTE** Because of the cleanup process some of the programs I have listed may not be in add/remove anymore this is fine just move to the next item on the list.

You can remove these programs using add/remove or you can use the free uninstaller from Revo (Revo does allot better of a job)

Programs to remove

Adobe Reader 9.4.5 MUI
Bing Bar
Bing Bar Platform
Coupon Printer for Windows
CouponBar
Java™ 6 Update 24
McAfee Security Scan Plus
[/list]


  • Please download and install Revo Uninstaller Free
  • Double click Revo Uninstaller to run it.
  • From the list of programs double click on The Program to remove
  • When prompted if you want to uninstall click Yes.
  • Be sure the Moderate option is selected then click Next.
  • The program will run, If prompted again click Yes
  • when the built-in uninstaller is finished click on Next.
  • Once the program has searched for leftovers click Next.
  • Check/tick the bolded items only on the list then click Delete
  • when prompted click on Yes and then on next.
  • put a check on any folders that are found and select delete
  • when prompted select yes then on next
  • Once done click Finish.
.

Update Adobe Reader

Recently there have been vulnerabilities detected in older versions of Adobe Reader. It is strongly suggested that you update to the current version.

You can download it from http://www.adobe.com.../readstep2.html
After installing the latest Adobe Reader, uninstall all previous versions.
If you already have Adobe Photoshop® Album Starter Edition installed or do not wish to have it installed UNcheck the box which says Also Download Adobe Photoshop® Album Starter Edition.

If you don't like Adobe Reader (53 MB), you can download Foxit PDF Reader(7 MB) from here. It's a much smaller file to download and uses a lot less resources than Adobe Reader.

Note: When installing FoxitReader, be careful not to install anything to do with AskBar.
[/list]

Please go here to install Java

  • click on the Free Java Download Button

  • If you accidentally close it, the log file is saved here and will be named like this:
  • C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\mbam-log-date (time).txt

Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts.
Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process.
If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

:Remove unneeded start-up entries:

This part of the fix is purely optional

Gringo,

Just curious, how long should that ESET scanner take? It's been running now about 5 hours and it's only 33% done.

It froze up after 5.5 hours, so I had to abandon it yesterday. This afternoon I will try it again and let you know. Thanks.

Gringo,

I tried to run the program again and it froze again. Then when I forced a reboot of the computer it went into some kind of bios recovery mode.

Also, I have had to reboot it several times today. I noticed that in using both firefox and google chrome that on the lower left had side of the page random websites are showing (i.e. www.vacationstarter.com--others too, but that's the only one I can remember right now). I don't know if they are monitoring my web usage or if they are trying to redirect me or what. But when the pc starts to freeze and I look at that side of the page, that's what I see.

Thanks,
Jenny

Hello

I would like you to download an updated version of combofix.

update combofix

Delete the version of combofix you have now on your desktop and download a new one from here

Link 1
Link 2
Link 3
**Note: It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**

1. Close any open browsers.
2. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
When finished, it will produce a report for you.

Note:Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall

Note 2: If you recieve an error "Illegal operation attempted on a registery key that has been marked for deletion." Please restart the computer
[/list]
"information and logs"

  • In your next post I need the following
  • Log from Combofix
  • let me know of any problems you may have had
  • How is the computer doing now?

Ok, now i'm at a standstill. I downloaded the third link in your post, and the computer froze again when I launched it. Since then it will not boot at all. I've tried to boot it in regular mode, safe mode, recovery mode, etc. Nothing works. Any ideas? Should I hook up the hard drive to another pc and try to fix it that way?

Thanks,
jenny
