Trojan & 'only the best' virus

I tried my hardest to remove this before bugging people in a forum -- but after about 15 hours of work on my computer, I still can't get rid of this thing!

Symptoms:
When I boot up -- IE open automatically to "about:blank", and when I navigate to a real web page, a pop up with various ads comes up (including spyware stuff funny enough) -- it always has the "Only the Best" title on the pop up.

My Norton Anti-virus also pops up a Torjan Horse virus alert. Each time it seems to be a different file name. I locate the file (which is not always available to view in explorer) and run Norton on it but they can never be deleted.

What I have tried:
I went to the Major Geeks website and followed all the instructions for removing a Trojan virus (running 9 different scans on my computer in safe mode). The same symtoms still happen. I ran HijackThis and submitted my log to the Help2Go web site which told me to delete c:\windows\viewmanager folder -- which I did, it still didn't do anything. So now I have run a HijackThis scan a 2nd time but analyizing this code is beyond my skill set (I run a youth orchestra for a living!).

Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

  • Restart the computer.
  • As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the boot menu appears.
  • Use the arrow keys to select the Safe Mode menu item.
  • Press the Enter key.
Step #3Start HijackThis and click the Scan button to perform a scan. Look for the following items and click in the checkbox in front of each item to select it:

  • Click ‘Next’ and Ad-Aware SE will scan your hard drive(s) with the options you have selected and clean automatically.
  • If Ad-Aware SE finds bad entries, you will receive a list of what it found in the window

Thank Lobos for this helpful reply.

Since posting my original log I had found several sites that were recommending Firefox instead of IE. So I installed this on my computer. Then -- when I came to log at my log again, many things were different -- so I uninstalled it and went back and it returned most of the items but not all of them. I then followed your instructions just fixing the lines from your message which I actually had in my log. After the several scans you also asked me to do things are now much better. No more Only the Best pop-ups and no more Trojan Horse virus warning from my Norton Antivirus. However, when I boot up, I am still getting IE open automatically but it shows the 'i can't find server page' (not about:blank anymore) even though I am connected and from then on in it is no trouble surfing the net.

I have posted my new log below as requested.

Thank you again for your help -- REALLY appreciated!
