It seems like I got this iexplore.exe virus somewhere and it's just been spiraling. Let me know what I can do further. I'm running Windows 7 32-Bit.

I also have DDS available if necessary. GMER causes me to blue screen.

Chrome, my default browser, has been disabled apparently and I'm only able to use internet explorer. My system is very slow on startup, it often takes 4-5 times to "catch" -- I get past the point in the start where one could access BIOS and then Windows doesn't load. I thought this was a hardware issue but I'm starting to think it might be related to my current problem. I first started to notice that I have something when random instances of IE would start playing ads while invisible. I would end the process in task manager but they come back pretty quickly, playing the ads sporadically throughout my session.

I've run my Norton anti-virus, but anything it deletes(which don't even seem to be the main problem here) comes back in short order. Spybot has been run but no real effects have happened. I've deleted a few minor things in HJT but nothing has happened there either. I've also run MalwareBytes and the Windows Malware tool to no avail.

Since my computer is so slow starting up, I ask that you help me with my problem dilligently, as I'm afraid that one of these times my computer just won't start up. It's very valuable to me, as I'm a full-time student and I play team-based video games on a scheduled basis, so not only do I need my system but four others are counting on me to be there.

I've thought that I've kept up with my system but apparently this has gotten the best of me. I'm more than willing to try anything you suggest. Thank you so much.

Please familiarize yourself with the forum rules: >Forum Posting Rules - Please Read<

We're sorry, but it is necessary to close your topic because you have replied to it prior to receiving a response from a helper.

Due to adding on to your topic with your second post it is highly unlikely that you would have received a response. Our helpers are looking for topics with zero responses. When you post replies to your own topic, it no longer has zero responses, and so it appears that you have received help when in fact, you have not.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Malware Removal forum and wait for assistance. Please do not run additional programs and/or post additional logs. Just your HijackThis log and Uninstall List to start with is adequate. Your helper will ask for additional logs as needed. DO NOT reply to your own topic until you have received a response from a helper. Be patient. There are others who have been waiting longer than you, so do not expect an immediate reply.
