IE7 flashes and disappears. Malware.trace cannot be removed

Recommended Posts


My PC ( Running on Windows XP) somehow got Antivirus 2009 trojan and very annoying TDSServ.sys issues. My PC was running extremely slow. Cntl + Alt + Delete did not work. IE7 and firefox would not even open a session. They were just dieng. Referred by my friends, I found MBAM. MBAM's detailed forum discussions helped me to disable TDSServ and made my PC workable again. It helped me in removing the TDSServ.sys trojan and a lot of others. I ran both quick scan and full scan.A million thanks to you as I was desparately looking for a solution for more than 2 weeks.

Atleast, my PC is letting me login now without freezing and beeping.

Now, when I try IE7, it flashes and dies. Firefox applogizes and quits. Mcafee and the other software updates are working as I see the version number of the updates getting changed. It is only my web browser that is dying on me.

I have mcafee antivirus software with spam and spyware protection. As suggsted by exile360, I have done the following.

Ran the latest version of Spybot search and destroy. --> It cleaned a lot of trojans.

MBAM keeps detecting the same two malware. But, it is unable to remove it.

MBAM and HJT were run. The following are the logs. I could not do a panda active scan as IE is not working. Any help is much appreciated.

MBAM log.:
