Ok next step :tazz:

Copy everything in the quote box below (Starting with REGEDIT4) and paste it into notepad. Go up to "File > Save As" and click the drop-down box to change the 'Save As Type' to 'All Files'. Save it as fixme.reg on your desktop.

REGEDIT4

03,00,00,01,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00
"CurrentState"=dword:40000004
"OriginalStateInfo"=hex:18,00,00,00,cc,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,34,03,00,00,e2,02,\
00,00,04,00,00,40
"RestoredStateInfo"=hex:18,00,00,00,cc,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,34,03,00,00,e2,02,\
00,00,01,00,00,00


Double-click fixme.reg on your desktop. When asked if you want to merge with the registry click YES.

This time we will require a reboot after this process.

After that do this step again please.

Go into start then run

And on the text line enter this.

regedit /e c:\reg.txt "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop\"

Afterwards post the contents of c:\reg.txt :)

Well my man I can say this finally that log is nice and clean Congrats!!!!!! :)

Thanks for sticking with it. :)

Since your issues have been addressed and you are ready to travel the net again, I will just give you a few ideas on how to stay safe out there. Best of all these programs are all readily available on the net for free :)

To reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster and SpyWareGuard.

SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard are by JavaCool and both are free programs. SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed and consumes no system resources. SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.

More info and download is available at:

Spyware Blaster Spyware Guard

Might I suggest the following Free Spyware programs for added security, you can download them at the following links. These programs work great for detection:

Ad-aware SE--Adaware Tutorial

Spybot S&D--Spybot Tutorial

Antiviruses play an important role in keeping your computer safe and worry free while using the net. *NOTE* Only one antivirus must be allowed to run on your computer, as having two or more running can and will cause conflicts.

AVG Avast

Firewalls are also a must in any good prevention :

Zone Alarm Sygate Kerio

There are different browsers available on the net, other than Internet Explorer, we believe!! these are better for security purposes :

Firefox Opera

You must stay on top of your updates at all times, for the above mentioned applications.

It is vitally important to stay on top of your critical updates provided by microsoft.

This can be accessed by going to Windows Updates and following the prompts.

To add to the performance of your computer, i suggest a weekly maintenance program. Run this tool. Ccleaner

Lastly a second opinion on the Antivirus that you have chosen. I suggest running these online virus scans periodically, just to make sure that the av is doing a proper job, of keeping you safe :

Rav Online Scan Housecall Online Scan Panda Activescan

Housecall Java Online Scan<---For those who use Firefox

And finally a little Posted Image How did I get infected in the first place ? (by Mr. Tony Klein and dvk01)

Good luck and safe surfing :tazz:
