well I am about 3 or 4 days in and still having some problems. Still not sure if I am doing this correctly. Have run scans continually since first downloading your Malwarebytes program. Seems that some times just approaching icon on desktop, the computer starts to open Explorer 50 to 60 times, before I can get one of the scan programs opened. After this, Malwarebytes doesn't find anything, nor does the Avira program. The security essentials program, picked up Trojan:win32/FAKEXPA, and the first scan with the Malwarebytes found quite a few Sunday morning. I was able to quarantin the Cyber Security file into the Norton quarantine that came with computer, however, Yesterday morning when screen was flashing I was able to access control panel programs and deleted the same Cyber Security (the icon was changed). I know that you are all very busy, and I have read a few of the other threads so I realize how intricate the removal of problems can be. This is not to say that I understand even a tenth of what is listed in the logs that are sent to you. I am trying to learn and any help would be greatly appreciated. I deleted the Java off my system (you mentioned to another, that it was prone to infection or allowed infections in). Also the Alot toolbar program is being deleted. Please contact me back (hope you do) at your conveience, thank you have a good day.

p.s. I am amazed at how many people on your site are having simular problems to my own, and how rapidly the updates are made for your malware programs. :)

Hello Jim,

Please run the following. Make sure your AV is disabled.

Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

**Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved and renamed following this process directly to your desktop**

  1. If you are using Firefox, make sure that your download settings are as follows:
    • Tools->Options->Main tab
    • Set to "Always ask me where to Save the files".

[*]During the download, rename Combofix to Combo-Fix as follows:



[*]It is important you rename Combofix during the download, but not after.

[*]Please do not rename Combofix to other names, but only to the one indicated.

[*]Close any open browsers.

[*]Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.


  • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
  • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.


  • Close any open browsers.
  • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
  • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
  • If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.


[*]Double click on combo-Fix.exe & follow the prompts.

[*]When finished, it will produce a report for you.

[*]Please post the "C:\Combo-Fix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review.

**Note: Do not mouseclick combo-fix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**

If you still cannot get this to run, try booting into Safe Mode, and run it there.

To boot into Safe Mode, tap F8 after BIOS, and just before the Windows logo appears. A list of options will appear, select "Safe Mode."

If this doesn't work either, try the same method (above method), but name Combofix.exe to iexplore.exe instead, or winlogon.exe..

This because It also happens in some cases that malware blocks EVERY process except for what is in its own whitelist, so this whitelist also includes system important processes such as iexplore.exe, explorer.exe, winlogon.exe...
