Hi beanland, i see you have Windows XP SP2, i suggest you update to SP3. If you are interested check out this MS site. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322389

Since you already have Malwarebytes' installed i would keep this valuable tool. I run mine a few times a week to check my computer for anything it may have picked up.
You can continue to manually update and use MBAM as an on demand scanner.
There is also an upgrade to the paid version.
Instructions on use:
Click/open Malwarebytes' on your desk top, click the Update tab, click the box check for updates, use the option "perform quick scan".
# When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
# Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected


Congratulation you are clean !!! :cheers:

Next we remove all used tools.
You may delete the RSIT and RSIT EXE.
Also delete Gmer

This is a good time to clear your existing system restore points and establish a new clean restore point:

* Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore
* Select Create a restore point then Next, type a name like All Clean, press the Create button. Once it's finished, press Close.
* Next, go to Start > Run and type in cleanmgr and press OK.
* Select the More options tab.
* Choose the option to clean up system restore and OK it.

This will remove all restore points except the new one you just created.

  • Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows XP or Vista then you should disable and re-enable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.

    You can find instructions on how to enable and re-enable system restore here:

    Windows XP System Restore Guide

    Re-enable system restore with instructions from tutorial above

    • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    • Click once on the Security tab
    • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    • Click once on the Custom Level button.
    • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
    • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
    • Change the Initialize 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.
    • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.

    • Update your AntiVirus Software and keep your other programs up-to-date
      Update your Antivirus programs and other security products regularly to avoid new threats that could infect your system.
      You can use one of these sites to check if any updates are needed for your pc.
      Secunia Software Inspector
      F-secure Health Check

    • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://update.microsoft.com/windowsupda ... ankspage=5 regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

    • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

      A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

      Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware

    • Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
    Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

    Here are some additional utilities that will enhance your safety
