It works fine if I manually terminate the Windows Explorer process, but then it's not particularly easy to use the machine. Any help would be appreciated.

Below is the Log file generated. Nothing in it looks too spurious to me.

Any help is appreciated.

Welcome to the What the tech Forums. My name is peku006. I would be glad to take a look at your log and help you with solving any malware problems. HijackThis logs can take a while to research. Please be patient and I'd be grateful if you would note the following:

1. If you don't know, stop and ask! Don't keep going on.
2. Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic. Please stay at one forum for help.
3. Please continue reading posts until I give the All Clear. It is important to note this, as a clean looking HijackThis is not always a sign your system is clean.

Note: As I am still on training, everything that I post to you, must be checked by an Admin or Moderator. Thus, there may be a tiny bit of a delay between posts, but it shouldn't be too long.

Any help is appreciated. I was a sysadmin several years ago, but I've never come across anything like this before, I can usually track things ike this down, but this one's got me stumped. I can reformat fairly easily if I have to, but I'd rather not. Thanks again. Clay

Hello Clay
donīt use the quotes ,simply paste your logfile here
1 - rename hijackthis

There is probably an infection which is hiding part of the HijackThis log because it's called hijackthis.exe.
Please rename hijackthis.exe to Clay.exe

Using Windows Explorer, click on Tools > Folder Options > View tab
Scroll down and UNtick 'Hide extensions for known file types' OK
Then, in Windows Explorer, navigate to: C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis\HijackThis.exe
Right-click on HijackThis.exe & select Rename to Clay.exe
after you have renamed hijackthis right click on it and create a new shortcut and put it on your desktop

2 - disable SUPERAntiSpyware
  • Please disable SuperAntispyware as it can interfere with the fix
  • Right-click on the shortcut from the system tray,
  • choose View Control Center (preferences/options),
  • on the General and Startup tab,
  • uncheck, Start SUPERAntispyware when Windows starts,
  • click Close to exit.

3 - Scan With ComboFix

Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running ComboFix -


Please ensure you read this guide carefully and install the Recovery Console first.

The Windows Recovery Console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery (repair) mode. This allows us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware. It is a simple procedure that will only take a few moments of your time.

Once installed, you should see a blue screen prompt that says -

The Recovery Console was successfully installed.

Please continue as follows -

  • Close/Disable all anti-virus and anti-malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
  • Disable Avast! by opening the "avast! settings..." window, selecting "Troubleshooting" and placing a tick in the box next to "Disable avast! self-defense module".
  • Click Yes to allow ComboFix to continue scanning for malware.

When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you.

4 - uninstall list

Make an uninstall list using HijackThis
To access the Uninstall Manager you would do the following:

1. Start HijackThis
2. Click on the Config button
3. Click on the Misc Tools button
4. Click on the Open Uninstall Manager button.
5. Click on the Save list... button and specify where you would like to save this file. When you press Save button a notepad will open with the contents of that file. Simply copy and paste the contents of that notepad here on your next reply.

5 - Run Hijackthis

Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad

6 - Status Check
Please reply with

1. the ComboFix log
2. the uninstall list
3. a fresh HijackThis log

Thanks peku006
