Hi. :)

Ok, I'm not sure what you mean by script blocking, but as far as I know the scan was completed ok.
Not a problem, script blocking pertains to a Windows feature which by default which allows scripts (VBScript and JavaScript) to run and some of these scripts can be malicious. So you might have had something that blocks/disables I was not aware of from my research of all benign applications you have run at my request.

Next:

Using Windows Explorer (to get there right-click your Start button and go to "Explore"), please navigate to:-

_OTL >> MovedFiles >> 01262010_073835 >> C:\Program Files >> Conquer 2.0

Click once on Conquer 2.0 >> Move this folder >> My Computer >> Local Disk C: >> Program Files >> Move

Next:

When completed the above let myself know if any further issues, thank you.

Am I suppose to drag and drop? I think I'm missing something. When I click the Conquer 2.0 file it opens. I right click it and there is no "Move" option and under send to there isn't a way to send it back to the program files.

***Disregard the above. I figured it out. Moved it and no problems thus far.

Hi. :)

Not with this computer no. Thank you for your help.
OK and you're welcome!

Congratulations your computer now appears to be both malware free and stable!

Now I have some tasks for your good self to carry out as part of a clean up process and some advice about online safety.

Importance of Regular System Maintenance:

I advice you read both of the below listed topics as this will go a long way to keeping your Computer performing well.

Help! My computer is slow!

Also so is this:

What to do if your Computer is running slowly

Uninstall ComboFix:

  • Click on Start >> Run...
  • Now type in ComboFix /Uninstall into the and click OK.
  • Note the space between the X and the /Uninstall, it needs to be there.
  • Image

Clean up with OTL:

  • Double-click OTL to start the program.
  • Close all other programs apart from OTL as this step will require a reboot.
  • On the OTL main screen, press the CleanUp button.
  • Say Yes to the prompt and then allow the program to reboot your computer.

The above process should clean up and remove the vast majority of scanners used and logs created etc.

Any left over merely delete yourself and empty the Recycle Bin.

Now some advice for on-line safety:

Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware:

This is a excellent application and I advise you keep this installed. Check for updates and run a scan once a week.

Other installed security software:

Your presently installed combination security application, AVG Internet Security automatically checks for updates and downloads/installs them with every system reboot and or periodically if the machine is left running providing a internet connection is active.

I advise you also run a complete scan with this also once per week.

Erunt:

Emergency Recovery Utility NT, I advice you keep this installed as a means to keep a complete backup of your registry and restore it when needed.

Myself I would actually create a new back up once per week as this along with System Restore may prove to be invaluable if something unforeseen occurs!

Keep your system updated:

Microsoft releases patches for Windows and other products regularly:


Be careful when opening attachments and downloading files:

  • Never open email attachments, not even if they are from someone you know. If you need to open them, scan them with your antivirus program before opening.
  • Never open emails from unknown senders.
  • Beware of emails that warn about viruses that are spreading, especially those from antivirus vendors. These email addresses can be easily spoofed. Check the antivirus vendor websites to be sure.
  • Be careful of what you download. Only download files from known sources. Also, avoid cracked programs. If you need a particular program that costs too much for you, try finding free alternatives on Sourceforge or Pricelessware.

Stop malicious scripts:

Windows by default allow scripts (which is VBScript and JavaScript) to run and some of these scripts are malicious. Use Noscript by Symantec or Script Defender by AnalogX to handle these scripts.

Avoid Peer to Peer software:

P2P may be a great way to get lots of seemingly freeware, but it is a great way to get infected as well. There's no way to tell if the file being shared is infected. Worse still, some worms spread via P2P networks, infecting you as well. My advice is avoid these types of software applications.

Hosts File:

A Hosts file is like a phone book. You look up someone's name in the phone book before calling him/her. Similarly, your computer will look up the website's IP address before you can view the website.

Hosts file will replace your current Hosts file with another one containing well-known advertisement sites, spyware sites and other bad sites. This new Hosts file will protect you by re-directing these bad sites to 127.0.0.1.

Here are some Hosts files:


Only use one of the above.

Finally a educational source:

To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read this article by Tony Klein:

Some consider this article outdated, personally I still think it bares relevance and the author is well respected in the Anti-Malware community and by myself also!

Any questions,feel free to ask? If not stay safe!
