thanks peku006... you've been great and I really appreciate you patience and time, one last thing before we part...
as you probably now know I'm using defender as well as a linksys router, I run avast antivirus about every 2 days before I had this problem, in addition spybot and adaware and window washer daily. Is this sufficient and would you suggest anything else to use to protect myself. I had purchased the norton and after a terrible fiasco I realize just because you buy something doesn't mean it will protect you.

many thanks again and have a wonderful holiday season!!!!

Hi Sydney

Here is a great article by miekiemoes How to prevent Malware.

Your log now appears to be clean. Congratulations! :D

To remove all of the tools we used and the files and folders they created do the following:

  • Double-click OTLexe.
  • Click the CleanUp! button.
  • Select Yes when the "Begin cleanup Process?" prompt appears.
  • If you are prompted to Reboot during the cleanup, select Yes.
  • The tool will delete itself once it finishes, if not delete it by yourself.

Note: If you receive a warning from your firewall or other security programs regarding OTC attempting to contact the internet, please allow it to do so.

MBAM can be uninstalled via control panel add/remove but it may be a useful tool to keep ......Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Scanning Guide.

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:

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

    Turn off System Restore-Vista
    • Click the Vista/Start icon.
    • Right Click >> Computer
    • Click Properties.
    • Click the System Protection tab.
    • Uncheck All drives
    • Click Turn Off System Restore at the prompt then click Apply.
    • Restart your computer.
    Turn ON System Restore-Vista
    • Click the Vista/Start icon
    • Right Click >> Computer
    • Click Properties.
    • Click the System Protection tab.
    • Checkmark All drives that were selected previously then click Apply.

    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 often to get the latest updates for your computer.
    http://www.update.microsoft.com

    Here are some things that I think are worth having a look at if you don't already know a bout them:.

    • WinPatrol
      As a robust security monitor, WinPatrol will alert you to hijackings, malware attacks and critical changes made to your computer without your permission. WinPatrol takes snapshot of your critical system resources and alerts you to any changes that may occur without your knowledge. For more information, please visit HERE.
    • SpywareBlaster
      SpywareBlaster sets killbits in the registry to prevent known malicious ActiveX controls from installing on your computer. If you don't know what ActiveX controls are, see HERE. You can download SpywareBlaster from HERE.
    • Hosts File
      For added protection you may also like to add a host file. A simple explanation of what a Hosts file does is HERE and for more information regarding host files read HERE.
    • Use an alternative Internet Browser
      Many of the exploits are directed to users of Internet Explorer. Try using a different browser instead: Firefox or Opera

Finally I am trying to make one point very clear. It is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL to keep all of your security programs up to date.

I'd be grateful if you could reply to this post so that I know you have read it and, if you've no other questions, the thread can be closed.

Happy surfing and stay clean!
