Got tied up for a couple of days but here are the scans you last requested. I ran HijackThis first and deleted the avw2.dll line. Then I rebooted and ran Silent Runners and a fresh HijackThis log. Here they are.

Silent Runners:

Haven't had the Winfixer pop up when I use IE at all. PC seems to be running better too. Was the avw2.dll the culprit?

Thanks a lot for all your help. You know your stuff.

you had an infection called Vundo, and your host files were all messedup (probally because of the vundo)

Great job, it appears your computer is clean :tazz:

Ensure you rehide your “hidden files and folders” back to the way they were.

Now that your system is Malware Free, it is important to reset your system Restore. Click Here to learn how to.

I recommend that you Defrag your computer before setting your Restore points:

Go to start>all programs>accessories>system tools>Disk Defragmentor Make sure it set to the proper drive (default should be your main driver) and click on defragment

Might I suggest the following Free Spyware programs, if you don't already have them, for added security, you can download them at the following links. These programs work great for detection:

Ad-aware SE
Spybot S&D
Microsoft Anti-Spyware

If you are unhappy with your current antivirus and want to replace it or if you dont already have one, I suggest one of these free programs:
*Note - do not use more than one anti-virus program as it will more than likely cause conflict.


The following free programs are great for prevention:

SpywareBlaster 3.4

A Firewall is a must! Here are 3 good free versions:
