Go to

Close all other windows and browsers except HJT before clicking on Fix Checked

Okay, system seems to running pretty good. I have uninstalled NAV. Had to do it manually, but I got it out. I have also gone and removed as much 'junk' as I could find and felt like tracking down. Here is my latest HJT. Let me know what you think. The only thing left I can see is my icons with Blue lettering behind them on the desktop. But, I can always change that via display settings, but I wasn't sure if that is a sign of something still in the system. But, from what I can tell, things seem good. BTW, I haven't had a pop-up for over 24 hours now. Basically since we had ComboFix work.

Great news ! Image

Your log now appears to be clean.

Lets do a few things to tidy up.
Please do these in the order I suggest!

This process is going to clean up some of the tools we have used.

  • Open OTmoveit.
  • Click on Cleanup!.
  • Allow it to access the internet if any security software asks about it.

    It will ask you if you want to start the clean up process :
  • Click yes.
  • When it's ready it will ask you to reboot.
    Do so now.
    Then finish up with the rest of the instructions.
Please create a 'clean' System Restore Point:
The reason for doing this is in case you need system restore you don't put back all we just took out.
Right click My Computer
Then Propeties then system restore
Place a check mark by turn off system restore
Windows will give you a warning click yes

Now go right back to the same place and unchecksystem restore
Click APPLYand OK

A few things to help with possible threats

These are optional . But will help protect you further.


Install SpywareBlaster

SpywareBlaster will add a large list of programs and sites to your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from accidentally running or downloading known malicious programs.
After the installation, click Download Latest Protection Updates. When it finishes, click Enable All Protection.



This tool bar will help protect you from.

Over 4,000 fake bank and credit sites.
Tens of thousands of pornographic
and adult sites.
The never ending fake phishing sites.
Malicious sites, which can infect you
with spyware and adware if you visit
Sites to download software which
may infect your computer with
spyware, a virus or adware

Download and Install a HOSTS File
A Hosts file is a plain text file which prevents your computer from connecting to malware and spyware sites by redirecting the connection request to, which is your local address. If you use a proxy server, or if you are on AOL, be sure to read the special instructions.
You can download the MVPS Hosts File and see a HOSTS file tutorial here :
This website also contains useful tips, and links to other resources and utilities.

Make your Internet Explorer more secure
1. From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
2. Click on the Security tab
3. Click the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
4. Click on Default Level and click Ok
5. Click on the Custom Level button.

Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
Change the Initialise and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt

When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.

6. Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.

Here's a site with great advise on how to AVOID malware. Much easier to do than removing it.

If your anything like me you should be mad these people have done this to you.
Please take the time to tell us what you would like to be done to these idiots!
We can only get something done about this if the people that we help, like you, are prepared to complain.
We have a dedicated forum for collecting these complaints Malware Complaints, you do not have to be registered to post.. just find your country room and register your complaint.

The infections you had was Vundo

Safe and Happy Surfing. :)
