I hate to say this, but the OTL.exe just caused my desk top to disappear (except the wallpaper) and then nothing happened. I tried this 3 times with the same results. Is this a lost cause or should I run the TDSSKiller.

Hi drjbg,
At this point i think the quickest and safest option is for you to reformat this computer and reinstall windows.
We can keep trying other options if you wish but there is no guarantee we will be successful.
Let me know what you think.

I think you're right. Do you have any links or general advice as to how to reinstall? I've done this before, but I just thought you may have some tips. Also, what program would you recommend to "test" or scan the computer once the re-install is finished?
Thanks for all yours and Maxie's attempts at trying to fix this.

Hi drjbg,
Thanks for all yours and Maxie's attempts at trying to fix this.

You're most welcome, you have made the right choice to reformat.
what program would you recommend to "test" or scan the computer once the re-install is finished?

You will be restoring the computer to factory setting so there will be no need to scan it, the computer will be clean of infection.
I can give you some recommendations on how to better secure your computer once the reformat is done.
Do you have any links or general advice as to how to reinstall? I've done this before, but I just thought you may have some tips.

Yes no problem see Formatting and Installing from the Windows XP CD

Here are some free programs I recommend that could help you improve your computer's security.

Anti-virus

You should download a free anti-virus software from one these excellent vendors.


Note: You should run only one antivirus program at a time. Having more than one antivirus program active in memory uses additional resources and results in program conflicts and false virus alerts.

Install Malwarebytes Anti-malware
These are anti-malware applications that can thoroughly remove even the most advanced malware. They include a number of features, including a built in protection monitor that blocks malicious processes before they even start.
You can find information and Download it from HERE

Install SpywareBlaster
Download and install Javacools SpywareBlaster from Here
SpywareBlaster adds a list of ActiveX controls, tracking cookies and sites which will be blocked in either Internet Explorer or Firefox browsers. You need to manually check for updates regularly.

Install SiteAdvisor
SiteAdvisor is a toolbar for Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox which alerts you if you're about to enter a potentially dangerous website.
You can find more information and download it from Here

Install 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

MVPS Hosts

Install MVPS Hosts File From Here
The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer.
You can Find the Tutorial HERE

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
You can do that HERE

Read some information HERE On how to prevent Malware

I would 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.

Safe surfing!

Hi drjbg,
Again you're most welcome, good luck and stay safe.
As the resolution of this issue requires a reformat, and there have been no further questions posted regarding that process, this topic is now closed.
