Internet Explorer and Google Chrome not working

Unread postby VNG1029 » June 23rd, 2012, 5:12 pm

Hi guys, my internet explorer is not opening, but shows in the processes of the task manager and same with Chrome. I think these symptoms happened sometime after downloading a file. I've tried reinstalling and rebooting but nothing works. Here's my log, Thanks in advance!

Hello VNG1029 and Welcome to Malware Removal! :)
My name is Gizzy and I'll be glad to help you with your malware problems.

Please note the following while we work:
  • The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this computer.
  • Perform all actions in the order given.
  • If you don't know or understand something stop and ask! Don't keep going on.
  • Please DO NOT uninstall/install any programs unless asked to. It is more difficult when files/programs appear or disappear from the logs.
  • Please DO NOT run any tools or scans unless I ask you to.
  • It is important that you reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
  • Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use, Be assured, any links I give are safe.
  • The process is not instant, Please continue to respond to this thread until I give you the All Clean!. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

Please be aware that removing Malware is a potentially hazardous undertaking. I will take care not to knowingly suggest courses of action that might damage your computer. However it is impossible for me to foresee all interactions that may happen between the software on your computer and those we'll use to clear you of infection, and I cannot guarantee the safety of your system. It is possible that we might encounter situations where the only recourse is to re-format and re-install your operating system, or to necessitate you taking your computer to a repair shop.

Because of this, I advise you to backup any personal files and folders before you start.
Backup your data - XP
Backup your data - Vista
Backup your data - windows 7


I'm going through your log and will reply with instructions soon.

Hi VNG1029,


UAC Advice
  • All applications I ask to be used will require to be run in Administrator mode. i.e. Right-click on and select Run as administrator.
  • The Operating System (Windows Vista/7) in use comes with an inbuilt utility called User Account Control (UAC).
  • When prompted by this with anything I ask you to carry out please select the option Allow.


Download and run OTL
  1. Download OTL to your desktop.
  2. Right-click on OTL.exe and select Run as administrator to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and let it run uninterrupted.
  3. Check the box beside Scan All Users
  4. Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
  5. When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
  6. Please copy (Edit > Select All -- Edit > Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time, and post them with your next reply.


Please reply with:
  • OTL logs (OTL.txt and Extras.txt)

Due to a lack of response, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
