    aswMBR would not work. I get this message in a seprate box: avast! Antirootkit has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Then aswMBR closes.

    Spybot: There are directions to use Spybot in post #2, but... I could not find the link for it.

    Hello Nanich.

    My name is fbfbfb. I will gladly assist you with your concerns.

    Please be advised, as I am still in training, all my replies to you will be checked for accuracy by one of our experts to ensure that I am giving you the best possible advice. This may cause a delay, but I will do my best to keep it as short as possible.

    I am checking over your DDS log now, and I will post back shortly with instructions.

    While working to resolve the issues with your machine, please follow these guidelines:
    • Please be patient. Logs are lengthy and can take time to analyze.
    • Read and follow my directions carefully, in the sequence they are posted.
    • If you are unsure about anything, please ask for clarification before continuing.
    • Use only those tools that you have been directed to use.
    • Do not install or uninstall any applications or run any other scans without being directed to do so.
    • Copy and Paste the log files inside your post. Do not send them as attachments unless otherwise instructed.
    • Stay with me until your machine has been deemed all clear.
    • Please reply within 3 days of each post to avoid closing this topic.

    Hello, Nanich. Thank you for the DDS logs. You report that you had problems running aswMBR. Let's try running TDSSKiller instead.

    Please run the following scans

    1. TDSSKiller
    • Please download TDSSKiller from HERE and save it to your Desktop.
    • Extract its contents to your desktop.
    • Once extracted, open the TDSSKiller folder, right click on TDSSKiller.exe and select Run as Administrator to run the application.
    • When the window opens, click Change Parameters.

    Thank you. One of your directions does not seem to work for me:
    Once extracted, open the TDSSKiller folder, right click on TDSSKiller.exe and select Run as Administrator to run the application.

    There is a Run as... option. When I select that there is no option to run as an administrator.

    Hello, Nanich.

    Please work through the following tasks

    Uninstall Multiple Anti-virus Programs

    I see that you are currently running multiple anti-virus programs:
    • avast! Antivirus
    • AVG 2013
    Running multiple antivirus programs can trigger system slow downs, crashes, and/or conflicts with each other causing them not to work properly. I am recommending that you choose and keep only one good antivirus program installed on your computer. To remove the other, please follow these steps:
    • Click Start and select Control Panel.
    • When the Control Panel window opens, click on Uninstall a program found under the Programs category.
    • If you are using the Classic View of the Control Panel, then you would double-click on the Programs and Features icon instead.
    • Look through the list of programs for the one that you would like to uninstall, and then left-click on it once to highlight it.
    • Click on the Uninstall button.
    • When asked if you are sure you want to uninstall, click Yes.
    • The program will uninstall, and when completed you will be back at the list of programs installed on your computer.
    • When finished, close the Programs and Features screen.

    Let me revise those instructions for you:

    • Please download TDSSKiller from HERE and save it to your Desktop.
    • Unzip the folder. (Right Click > Extract to your Desktop).
    • Doubleclick on TDSSKiller.exe to run the application.
    • When the window opens, click Change Parameters.
    • Under Additional options, put a check mark in the box next to Detect TDLFS File System. Click OK.
    • Click Start Scan.
    • As we are only looking for a log of what is on the machine right now, choose Skip for whatever is found.
    • Click Continue > Reboot now.
    • Click on Report.
    Please copy and paste the contents of that file in your next reply.
    Note: It will also create a log in the C:\ directory.
    Please run the following scan

    • Please download OTL to your desktop from HERE or HERE
    • Close all other applications and windows so that you have nothing open.
    • Double click on the icon on your desktop.
    Note: Vista and Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator. If you receive a UAC prompt asking if you would like to continue running the program, you should press the Continue button.
    • Under Output, click Minimal Output to select it.
    • Click the Scan All Users checkbox. Leave the remaining selections to the default settings.
    • Do not use the computer while the scan is in progress.
    • When the scan is complete, two log files will open in Notepad: OTListIt.txt (will be maximized) and Extras.txt <- (will be minimized in the Task Bar).
    • Both logs are automatically saved to the Desktop.
    • Please copy and paste the contents of OTListIt.txt and Extras.txt in your next reply. If the Extras.txt log is too long, you may need to add a second reply to your thread.
    • Click the red X in the upper right corner to exit OTL.

    SUMMARY: In your next reply, please post the following:
    • TDSSKiller report
    • Security Check report
    • OTL log

    I am not have much luck. AVAST will not uninstall. I do see the entry. When I click on it and click remove, the computer works but the nothing happens.

    I do not see an entry for AVG. I do see the folder in program files, but I do not in the "add or remove programs"

    Because I could not do your first instructions, I have not go onto the next instructions.

    Hello, Nanich.

    Sometimes it is difficult to uninstall these anti-virus programs in the usual manner, in which case you can use specified removal tools supplied by each software manufacturer. Depending on which anti-virus you have chosen to remove, follow these steps:

    1. Uninstall Avast using aswClear
    • Download aswclear.exe HERE and save it on your desktop.
    • Start Windows in Safe Mode.
    • Open the uninstall utility.
    • If you installed avast! in a different folder than the default, browse for it.
    • Click REMOVE.
    • Restart your computer.

    2. Uninstall AVG using AVG Remover tool
    • Save all your work and close all documents. Your computer will be restarted during the procedure.
    • Download AVG Remover tool from HERE.
    • Run the downloaded tool and follow the instructions displayed on your screen.
    • Your computer will be restarted automatically.
    • After the restart, AVG Remover will finish the uninstallation.

    I am using windows XP. How do you start in safemode? A website said to hold F8 down, but that only gave me different options on which device to use to boot. It did not offer safemode.

    Hello, Nanich.

    Boot into Safe Mode using the F8 method:
    • Restart your computer.
    • Gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until the Windows XP Advanced Options menu appears.
    Note: If Windows launches before you can choose Safe Mode, restart your computer and try again.
    • Select the Safe Mode option using the up and down arrow keys.
    • Then, press the enter key on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode.
    Note: When tasks have been completed, reboot your computer to normal mode.
