Larry, I have a feeling we might be getting close to having my problem solved...no idea really...you are the guy that will know. Anyway, whenever we get finished, please check back, because I have a few questions I need to ask.

Try your account.

If your account still doesn't work and you have data you want from that account, I would create a new account like Dan2 with admin rights and move all the data you want to save there. Then use the Dan2 account.

I logged off Admin2 and logged in to my account. Programs such as Outlook Express, Excell, Word still won't run. So, I am assuming I will need to follow your instructions and start a new user account. First question is can we use the Administrator2 account and just rename it?

Then the scary part for me...what kinds of data are we talking about moving? If I open a program such as Outlook Express in ADmin2 will all my emails and addresses still be there? If I open excel, will all my files still be there? Is there any way to tranfer my internet favorites to the new account? I'm sure there are a number of other things I need to know.

Okay, I am in Admin2 account and I downloaded Combofix.exe and started it. I will let it run for awhile, but it looks just like it did last night with one blinking dash down in the lower left corner and no prompts appearing.

It's hung up again.

Try this:

Please download DDS and save it to your desktop.

  • Disable any script blocking protection
  • Double click dds.scr to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS.txt will open.
  • Click Yes at the next prompt for Optional Scan.
  • Save both reports to your desktop.


Please Please copy / paste the scan reults.

I ran it once, but did not have AVG turned off. I can't figure out how to disable AVG.

Logs with AVG on are as follows:

1. Isn't there a AVG control panel somewhere that I can just turn it off for awhile.

2. Do you think the system is just about clean?

3. As I mentioned Larry, I am going to need some help transferring data to the new user account can I call your support guys to help with this? 4. What is the phone number

1. We tried that and CF still didn't run. It should show the AVG Icon down on the taskbar by the time.

If it's there, Right Click on the Icon and select disable. Then try Combofix again.
