Hi, i posted in the wrong section so, here's my stuff.

I ran all the programs that were on the program posting for the most part but its still hard to navigate without explorer.exe.

I don't think it's the program itself and I think it's because of some other script or something making the popup error come up all the time. I think it's dr watson debugger but, it shows "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

then, Error signature :
AppName: explorer.exe AppVer: 6.0.2900.2180 ModName: unknown
ModVer: 0.0.0.0 Offset: 00000000

.... in C:\DOCUME~1\Thomas\LOCALS~1\Temp\74e6_appcompat.txt

so I just ctrl+alt+delete and run firefox.exe to browse for help. I have done all the steps toward removing the virus too, such as running avg or adaware or spyware doctore or avast on safe mode and also using the nailfix to take out the program and even deleting it from c:\windows\nail.exe from the regedit.

I've taken all the steps and my explorer is still screwed. Can anyone please help? This is my Hijack This log.

Hello and welcome to Geeks To Go.

I am UKBiker and will be helping you with this log.

Lets start out with some general scans and see if we cant clean things up a little.

+++++ Step 1 +++++

Please download Ewido security suite it is a trial version of the program.
  • Install Ewido security suite
  • Launch Ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop double-click it.
  • The program will prompt you to update click the OK button
  • The program will now go to the main screen
You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.
  • On the left hand side of the main screen click update
  • Click on Start
The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
Once the updates are installed do the following:
  • Click on scanner
  • Make sure the following boxes are checked before scanning:
    • Binder
    • Crypter
    • Archives
  • Click on Start Scan
  • Let the program scan the machine
While the scan is in progress you will be prompted to clean files, click OK

Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
  • Click Save report
  • Save the report to your desktop
+++++ Step 2 +++++

Please run an on-line virus scan at Kaspersky OnLine Scan or if that doesnt work, you can use TrendMicro or BitDefender. (Please post the results of the scan(s) in your next reply)

+++++ Step 3 +++++

After that, I will need to see two different logs from HiJackThis. The first is the normal log like you posted here. To get the other one, follow these directions.

Open HijackThis, click Config, click Misc Tools
Click "Open Uninstall Manager"
Click "Save List" (generates uninstall_list.txt)
Click Save, copy and paste the results in your next post.

Post back with those logs and we can continue from there.

If you have recieved help elsewhere or no longer need our assistance, please let us know.
