I need help, rascally trojans...nothing will update

Recommended Posts

I have been fighting this for a few days now and am ready to throw in the towel. My malwarebytes will not update like so many others are having issues with, I have had two anti-viruses crash on me and now it will not allow me to re-install them. It says there is no internet connection just like with malwarebytes. Before my embarq antivirus crashed, it was detecting two trojans, W32.small.bxz and W32/Delf.DRM, but would not remove them. I am at my wits end. Here are my hijackthis logs and driver32 logs. I hope someone can help, at least I know from the posts here I am not alone.

Hijack this log:

Please try the following.

From within Internet Explorer go to Tools/Internet Options/Advanced and click on the RESET button.

Then restart IE and again go to the Tools/Internet Options/Connections tab and on the LAN and Dial-up settings

remove ALL PROXY settings unless you specifically set them yourself. Also remove any DNS Server entries unless YOU specifically set them.

Then click on START - RUN and copy / paste this into the RUN line and hit the OK button.


Then click on START - RUN and copy / paste this into the RUN line and hit the OK button.


Then click on START - RUN and copy / paste this into the RUN line and hit the OK button.


Now see if you can visit and update Malwarebytes or your Anti-Virus and let me know.

Rename the Hijackthis.exe file to something else like SPOAZ.EXE and do another Scan and post back the log.
