Kaspersky at end reported no malware found.

Jotti would not allow me to submit. The submit button stayed grayed out. So used VirusTotal.

Computer is faster and it doesn't get redirected to those websites as noted in problem from before.

I have lost the Icon for Avast in the tray, and don't know if my antivirus protection is on or not. When you give me the all clear, can you recommend how to set computer up to be protected from this happening again? I'm not sure what security programs that I should have running at start up and would appreciate your suggestions.

Open notepad up and copy everything exactly in the box below into it.

Code: Select all


make sure to have no lines before


One (1) space before the end.
Now click on save and save TO YOUR DESKTOP

as "File Name" fix.reg

Save as File type "all files" NOT TXT DOCUMENT

Once saved double click the file you just made and when asked to merge with the registry click yes.

Now delete that file.

Restart and tell me if avast Icon is back.


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!

Go to start > run and copy and paste this in the field:

ComboFix /u

Make sure there's a space between Combofix and /
Then hit enter.

This will uninstall Combofix, delete its related folders and files, reset your clock settings, hide file extensions, hide the
system/hidden files and resets System Restore again.

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. :)

I copied the fix.reg file to notepad like you said:
Made sure there no lines before REGEDIT4
and I assume that you wanted (1) space after

Saved as all file types.

When I clicked on the fix.reg file I got the following error message window:

Registry Editor
(X) Cannot import C:\Documents and Settings\Steve Whitacre\Desktop\fix.reg:Not all data was successfully written to the registry. Some keys are open by the system or other processes.

I rebooted and tried to use that file again and got the same error message.

I will assume that I can work on getting the other things tidied up while I am waiting for you to get back to me on this one.

I have been looking into that error message:
Not all data was successfully written to the registry. Some keys are open by the system or other processes.

Nothing rock solid coming from my queries yet. So let's try these 3 things.

Click start/all programs /avast anti virus

Now on the top left should be a small tab (triangle) above the large knob.
By clicking that you should see settingsthen click appearance and choose show Avast try Icon Click OK and close avast. These setting may need to have you reboot to take effect.

If that doesn't work

Second try booting to safe mode and try running that .reg file we made.

Safe mode:
Please reboot to safe mode:
After the very first black screen start tapping the
F8 key untill prompted with a list.... choose safe
Be sure it's on the desktop for easy finding .


Third try. Always a charm :roll:

Open control panel /add / remove programs and choose avast.
Then click change ( should already be highlighted) then next
Except the default setting and continue with next and it will begin reinstalling/repairing the application. If it asks you to reboot please do so.


Let me know if one of these helps.

Using the fix.reg from the Safe Mode worked! Thanks.

Now, I notice I have a problem with plugging in my camera through the USB. I used to get a window to automatically pop up that would allow me to choose and run the Scanner & Camera Wizard.

Remember, that when you mentioned to me that running ComboFix would do the following?:

"Combofix prevents autorun of ALL CD, floppy and USB devices to assist with malware removal & increase security."

I really want to get that ability back. I need to have that Wizard to run. I use a feature in the Wizard that saves me a lot of steps and time in uploading and naming my pictures into different folders, which I do a lot in my work.

How do I get this feature back?

Hello again,
Sorry for the delay. I was away for a couple of days for the Holiday.

To try and fix the Autorun issue..

Go to http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/deta ... oContainer and download autorun fix to your desktop.

Click on it to open. Follow the prompts by clicking next. It will probably prompt you to log off and log back on to finish. Do so. Once that is finished :

Go to
start/my computer and right click on the drive in question choose properties then AutoPlay..

Click on the pull down menu and choose ,one at a time music ,pics, ,video and mixed content.
Each time choosing "Prompt me each time to perform an action"

Click apply and OK.
Remove and reinsert the drive. This should take care of that.
Please let me know.
