Great. If there are no other issues, let's do some cleanup.


To uninstall ComboFix


  • Click the Start button. Click Run. For Vista: type in Run in the Start search, and click on Run in the results pane.
  • In the field, type in ComboFix /uninstall




(Note: Make sure there's a space between the word ComboFix and the forward-slash.)


  • Then, press Enter, or click OK.
  • This will uninstall ComboFix, delete its folders and files, hides System files and folders, and resets System Restore.


To remove all of the tools we used and the files and folders they created do the following:

Double click OTL.exe.

  • Click the CleanUp button.
  • Select Yes when the "Begin cleanup Process?" prompt appears.
  • If you are prompted to Reboot during the cleanup, select Yes.
  • The tool will delete itself once it finishes.

Note: If any tool, file or folder (belonging to the program we have used) hasn't been deleted, please delete it manually.


Clean out your temporary internet files and temp files.

Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop.


Double-click TFC.exe to run it.


Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator


TFC will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.


* Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process.

* Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two.

* Please let TFC run uninterrupted until it is finished.


Once TFC is finished it should restart your computer. If it does not, please manually restart the computer yourself to ensure a complete cleaning.


Looking over your log it seems you don't have any evidence of a third party firewall.


Firewalls protect against hackers and malicious intruders. You need to download a free firewall from one of these reliable vendors.


Remember only install ONE firewall


1) Comodo Personal Firewall (Uncheck during installation "Install Comodo SafeSurf..", Make Comodo my default search provider" and "Make Comodo Search my homepage" and uncheck any HopSurf and/or Ask.com options if you choose this one)

2) Online Armor

3) Agnitum Outpost

4) PC Tools Firewall Plus


If you are using the built-in Windows XP firewall, it is not recommended as it does not block outgoing connections. This means that any malware on your computer is free to "phone home" for more instructions. Simply put, Windows XP contains a mediocre firewall. This firewall is NO replacement for a dedicated software solution. Remember to use only one firewall at the same time.


Use the Secunia Software Inspector to check for out of date software.

Having 3 issues:


1) Avira AntiVir personal will not enable no matter what I do.


2) I attempt to run Secunia Software Inspector and it seems it will run run. It suggests that it will not run from IE8. (This program may not run with your browser.)


3) I go to the Windows website to update and the setting they suggest to change are already in place.


I did download PC Tools Firewall Plus.


I've stopped going forward until I hear what I should do next, instead of, or which steps I should skip.

Avira AntiVir personal will not enable no matter what I do.

Please try installing MSE and see if it will activate.
