Hi

Unfortunately, as you have a Vista, we're doing this the manual way, so buckle up and let us begin. ;)

End malicious processes: (if they are present)
  1. Press the CTRL+ALT+DEL keys simultaneously to open Task Manager
  2. Click on the Processes tab to show running processes
  3. Find imsmain.exe and click on it
  4. Click End Process
  5. Repeat steps 4 & 5 for each of the following processes: (if present)
    • iesmn.exe <---two of these
  6. Close Task Manager

Run HijackThis, select Do a system scan only and place checks against the following entries (if they are still present):

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = about:blank
    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch =
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {1C3C4699-B285-475F-BE47-0B26088CE876} - C:\Program Files\Video ActiveX Access\iesplg.dll
    O3 - Toolbar: Protection Bar - {F06E2ABE-3A50-4079-BE25-FC100D9EAA25} - C:\Program Files\Video ActiveX Access\iesbpl.dll
    O4 - HKLM\..\Policies\Explorer\Run: [rare] C:\Program Files\Video ActiveX Access\imsmain.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Policies\Explorer\Run: [user32.dll] C:\Program Files\Video ActiveX Access\iesmn.exe

WITH ALL OTHER WINDOWS CLOSED Click on Fix Checked and exit HijackThis.

Reboot into SAFE MODE
    By pressing the F8 key right when Windows starts, usually right after you hear your computer
    beep when you reboot it (some versions of windows will display 'Starting Windows' with a grey progress bar)
    you will be brought to a menu where you can choose to boot into safe mode.

    If it does not work on the first try, reboot and try again, as you have to be quick when you press it.

    I have found that during boot up, right after the computer displays the equipment , memory, etc
    installed on your computer, if you start lightly tapping the F8 key, the system will usually display the menu.

Navigate to and delete the following folder (if they are present):

C:\Program Files\Video ActiveX Access

Make sure AVG-AntiSpyware is up-to-date before running the next step. Read through the instructions carefully, to ensure a report is generated.

  • Click on Recommended actions, and set to Quarantine.
[*]How to scan
  • Check all options.
[*]Possibly unwanted software.
  • Check all options.
[*]Reports
  • Check Do not automatically generate reports after every scan.
[*]What to scan
  • Check Scan every file.
[/list]
[*]Click on the Scan tab.
  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • When the scan has finished
    • Make sure that Set all elements to: shows Quarantine, if not click on the link and choose Quarantine from the popup menu.
    • At the bottom of the window click on the Apply all Actions button.
[/list]
[/list]
Note: Don't save the report before you hit the Apply action button.

Close AVG Anti-Spyware.

AVG will save a report in the following location C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG anti-spyware 7.5\Reports

Reboot back into Normal Mode, and scan with HijackThis again, posting the new log in your next reply with the AVG report, and tell me how your computer is behaving now.
