Please uninstall the Peer2Peer BitComet client. This is how many computers get infected by Malware.

If you want to re-install and run it after we're finished that's up to you but keep in mind it is quite likely why your computer is in the state it is now.

Start HJT and do a Scan Only and place a check mark on the following items.

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,SearchAssistant = http://www.crawler.com/search/ie.aspx?tb_id=60313

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,CustomizeSearch = http://dnl.crawler.com/support/sa_customize.aspx?TbId=60313

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch = http://dnl.crawler.com/support/sa_customize.aspx?TbId=60313

O20 - AppInit_DLLs: karna.dat

O24 - Desktop Component 1: (no name) - http://<a%20href=http://www.wallpapers.org/wallpapers/view.php?id=66292%20target='_blank'>Rock</a>

Then click on "Fix checked"

Then run this

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

  • Start MalwareBytes AntiMalware
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Select the Update tab
    • Click Update

    [*]When the update is complete, select the Scanner tab

    [*]Select Perform quick scan, then click Scan.

    [*]When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.

    [*]Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.

    [*]When completed, a log will open in Notepad. please copy and paste the log into your next reply

    • If you accidently close it, the log file is saved here and will be named like this:
    • C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\mbam-log-date (time).txt

If you can't get online still then let me know as the current infection might prevent access to certain Security sites but not all Interent access.

Then RESTART the computer and AFTER the restart run HJT and do a Scan and save log.

Post back all the logs.
