Please bare with me its my first post and I am no too pc friendly.

Over the past few days my PC has been very strange, reporting viruses and spyware which I have cleaned out with my Trend Miro Internet Security 2008, Spy bot SD and Ad-Aware, but problems still happen,
I keep getting notices that windows explorer needs to shut down or Dr watson needs to shut down.
PC crashes a lot and I have turn it off by pressing button on tower.

When rebooted I get message stating C:\Windows\system32\awvtqpnk.dll cannot find moduel.

I am housebound and need my pc for contact with outside world,

Thank you for your time,
Mersey.

Welcome to Free PC Help Mersey.


Malware is the term used to describe computer infections such as Adware, Spyware, Viruses, and Trojan Horses.

You will need to run two malware scanners that are listed in the following instructions.
The time it takes will vary depending on your system and your internet connection, but typically the SuperAntiSpyware scan will take between 30 and 90 minutes, and the Eset online scan will take between 1 and 3 hours. In most cases, those scans will suffice to disinfect your computer.

For best results print the following instructions.
To keep this guide printer-friendly, use your cursor to highlight the contents of below.
From your browser select the "print selection" option to print out these instructions for removal of malware. Follow these instructions carefully.

1: Download ATF Cleaner from http://www.snapfiles.com/download/dlatfcleaner.html to remove "junk" files from your computer that contain malware.
When you run ATF Cleaner, uncheck "Cookies" and "Recycle Bin", then click "Empty Selected". For FireFox, be sure to click on the FireFox tab and uncheck "Cookies" and "Recycle Bin" before clicking on "Empty Selected".


2: Install and run the free version (not the Professional version) of SuperAntiSpyware from www.superantispyware.com
Accept any prompts to allow SuperAntiSpyware to install the latest infection definition files.
DO NOT allow SuperAntiSpyware to protect your Home Page settings.
Double click the yellow "bug"icon in the system tray.
Click on "Scan Your Computer".
Make sure there is a dot on C:\Fixed Drive.
Click "Perform a Complete Scan". Click "Next" and reboot the computer when prompted to do so.


3: Disable your internet security by right clicking on its icon (usually located in the system tray next to the time display) and choosing "Exit", "Disable", or "Shut Down".

4: Run an online scan with Eset from http://www.eset.com/onlinescan/
You must use Internet Explorer for this online scan.
Accept the terms and click "Start".
Once the scanner is ready, check "Remove found threats" AND "Scan unwanted applications".
Click "Start" to begin the scan.

5: Restart your computer, make sure your internet security is enabled, and then please return to Free PC Help and tell us how the computer seems to be operating.
At that time, you will receive instructions to assist you in removing malicious programs from your Add/Remove program list.

Are you familiar with XP Repair? If so, it might be worth trying. If not, get back here for info on XP Repair and opinions on whether or not you should try it.

Hi mersey;
Was your boot error fixed?
Were there any problems turned up by the scans that could not be fixed?

HiJack This logs are not my specialty so you may want to wait for seth to look it over.
However there are a few things that come to mind by looking at it.

I see remnants of Symantec products listed. Since you use TrendMicro See if there is anything to uninstall in add/remove programs. Also run this tool http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039

Also there are way too many programs running at startup. Uninstall any you don't need.
Next use the programs options to stop them from running at startup.
Next use msconfig to stop unwanted programs from running.
Click start, run. Type msconfig and click ok. Click on the startup tab.

Uncheck anything related to Adobe such as Photoshop.
Uncheck Quicktime items such as qttask.
Uncheck Google Updater if it's listed.
Uncheck any Microsoft Office programs listed.

What is Kontiki and the Download accelerator you have?
How much memory do you have?

I'm sure seth will suggest more but I would at least try these first.

I agree Randy, that startup needs a good cleaning. I also doubt any malware is remaining after
all those scans.

Mersey,

Go to msconfig as Randy suggested. Scroll through the list and uncheck everything except Trend and jusched. Click Apply>Ok, and restart when prompted. You will then see a message that you used the startup utility, so just put a check in "don't show me this again".

Once that's done, perform hard drive error checking by going to Start>Run and typing in chkdsk /f and pressing ok. Note the space between the K and the /. Press Y at the next screen that appears and restart the computer to initiate the chkdsk.

I run SuperAntiSpyware again and got some more spyware and other rubish which I deleted and so far pc running smoothly.

Also deleted RABCO from add/remove programs as I did not know what it was.

I will continue to monitor for a few days and get back to you with progress report.
Thanks for all your help,
Mersey
