Those detections are not related with the symptoms. Open Internet Explorer, click on Tools then on Internet Options. Select the Advanced tab and click on Restore Advanced settings. Click Apply, then on OK.

I still concern about the CBS log.

Click Start, type cmd in the Start Search box, right-click cmd in the Programs list, and then click Run as administrator.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

Type the following command (including the quotation marks), and then press ENTER:

findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >"%userprofile%\desktop\sfcdetails.txt"

A sfcdetails.txt report will be produced on your desktop. See if you can attach that report.

okay so I reset the default settings in internet explorer. I ran the code you asked me to in command prompt as adminstrator, it produces a .txt document but it is blank...


i typed it in several times so I think i put all the characters in correctly...heres a screenshot in case i am just not seeing my mistake.

Just a note, when I initially ran the scan for the cbs.log it would not let me open it in the CBS folder, it said access denied..I copy pasted it onto the desktop and was able to open it...I did not get the access denied message but the document is blank when I open it.

This is a tough one. Thanks for you help =)

I guess the cbs.log contained just text and no information about corrupted files. That is good news.

How is the computer doing?

I believe that did the trick..I disabled unknown add ons, updated plug ins, and then went through a round of the anti malware programs...Internet is much faster. I was able to go to several websites without any hijacks are any pop ups. You've been a great help...I really appreciate it.

Congratulations.

Since the tools we used to scan the computer, as well as tools to delete files and folders, are no longer needed, they should be removed, as well as the folders created by these tools.

Run OTL. Click on the Cleanup button and follow the prompts.

Run AdWCleaner and uninstall

Manually remove any tool left.

Here are some suggestions.

  • Always keep your JAVA updated. Older versions will make your computer vulnerable.
  • Windows Updates - It is very important to make sure that both Internet Explorer and Windows are kept current with the latest critical security patches from Microsoft. To do this just start Internet Explorer and select Tools > Windows Update, and follow the online instructions from there.
  • ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) allows you to keep a complete backup of your registry and restore it when needed. The standard registry backup options that come with Windows back up most of the registry but not all of it. ERUNT however creates a complete backup set, including the Security hive and user related sections. ERUNT is easy to use and since it creates a full backup, there are no options or choices other than to select the location of the backup files. The backup set includes a small executable that will launch the registry restore if needed.
To find out more information about how you got infected in the first place and some great guidelines to follow to prevent future infections you can read this article by Miekiemoes.
