Don't let kaspersky delete explorer.exe! Let it disinfect. :tazz:
Good you finally could update and scan. Also save the report and post it in your next reply together with a new hijackthislog when finished. Hijackthislog made in safe mode.
Also, it seems like you are scanning now while replying to this post? You're supposed to scan in safe mode without networking support.

Okay an update: I was able to find an older version of kaspersky on the interent, I was able to install it and it worked fine. I never could get the newest version to work. The older version updated definitions, and I ran a scan with it in safe mode. After it completed I ran a scan with Ad-aware SE and a scan with Spy Sweeper. I believe it knocked everything out okay. My Pc is running a whole lot faster now.
I noticed that before I did the Kaspersky scan, my desktop icons had very small shadows, and my desktop background had a lower quality resolution. Also on startup in normal mode, desktop icons came up very slowly.

So roughly, I believe now I almost have it fixed. (my postings earlier were from a pocket pc device, sorry for the bad typing, those are hard to type on.)

I have a new little problem, dealing with Kaspersky somehow, I have a box that pops up when trying to load an internet page, it says something like:

KAV Script Checker
Cannot load library for language 'JScript'
Path:'C:\program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\Script Blocking\scrauth.dll'
Please contact Kaspersky Lab. for the solution.


I thought I removed all symantec live update software....


Anyway I believe this worked, but I'm going to try to be safe and get of this internet fairly quickly.

bye

Great!

I also think this worked. :tazz:

Just use this regfix:
* Download DelDomains.inf and save it to your desktop.
Rightclick on it and choose 'install'.

Seems like symantec is still everywhere on your system present, haha.
Even after you uninstall it, a lot of files wont get deleted from symantec.
So you may also delete next folder:
C:\program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared

I suppose Kaspersky actually said it disinfected your system? In that case.. your problem must be fixed.
What do you think now? Keeping Kaspersky or reinstalling Norton again? ;)

I sure do appreciate your help. Thank you for all the quick replys! My computer seems to be running just fine now. I believe the solution was getting kaspersky to run.
I guess I've been working on trying to get this fixed for about 5-6 days now, maybe even longer. I'm sure glad you were able to help me.

Thank you so much!

Very glad we could fix this.

To keep this clean in the future, I would suggest the following things:

Install Spywareblaster
SpywareBlaster doesn`t scan and clean for so-called spyware, but prevents it from being installed in the first place. It blocks the popular spyware ActiveX controls, and also prevents the installation of any of them via a webpage.

Avoid illegal sites, because that's where most malware is present.

Let your antispywarescanner(s) scan frequently and don't forget to update before.

And I do suggest you perform an online virusscan once in a while. (Kaspersky online and/or Bitdefender). Because what one virusscanner can't find another one maybe can.
Also make sure that your virusscanner, the one that is installed on your system is always up to date!

Make sure your windows has the latest updates: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/

Happy surfing again! :tazz:
