Disabled AntiVir thanks. Do you need me to run ESET again or will that log do?

That looks good, remember if you disabled your a\v to enable it back again.
Can you let me know how things are with the pc?

Dan,

The PC seems to be working ok. The problem with Google has stopped. AntiVar updates without problem.
The only thing that doesn't seem right are my slave hard drives. If you double click on them nothing happens.
If you right click I get the option to " Install or run program "
This may have nothing to do with the malware attack as it appeared after I reinstalled Vista ?

I forgot to mention I'm really grateful for your help

Hi Angus, I don't think this issue is malware related, I'd like just to have a look at a further scan to see if I can see anything regarding your issue.

Please download DDS from Tech Support Forum and save it to your desktop.

Double click on dds to run it. If you receive a UAC prompt, please allow it.

When done, DDS.txt will open. Another file, Attach.txt will open after a short while. Please save these 2 files to your desktop as they will be deleted once you close them.

Please attach Attach.txt in your next reply by scrolling down to Upload attachment and clicking on Browse....

An image is below for your reference:

In your next reply, please post:

  1. DDS.txt
  2. Attach.txt (attached to this topic)

Looking at the logtext it would appear punkbuster is still there? I thought I'd uninstalled it .

Run a windows search to see if it flags up any other locations for punkbuster.

Just having a look in your event log to see if I can attribute anything to your hardware issue.goggling the code,
I found this thread here
Security Event Log Audit Failure 5038 in Vista SP1
Not sure it will help or is even your problem.

I will finish up with your log and I may have to direct you to a forum that there are experts in that field as I want you to get best advice.

Thanks Dan,

The main thing is the malware seems to be gone.
Is the last problem really a problem? As long as the computer works I'm happy.
