Actually that post from maynardvdm could apply to any PC. Please review it and make sure it's not your issue.

As for the AutoRuns program - did you get it unzipped and copied to a folder or do you need assistance with that part?

Well you're either on the wrong key or some application is blocking you from seeing it.

Try posting the log from HijackThis as asked by Seth and post the log. Hopefully it will show us more of what's going on.

Without the Userinit entry you computer would not even start.

Hi Adam,

Well you have malware on your system for sure (and a LOT of auto startup programs you probably don't need)

I'll let Seth review the STARTUP Items I would recommend that you download and then install both of these Anti-Malware applications that should clean your system just fine.

Make sure you allow both of them to update their definition files and then run a scan on
your system and then have them clean up any entries found.

Once both of these have run and scanned/cleaned your system then run another HiJackThis Log Only and post that new log.

SUPERAntiSpyware 3.9

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.05


Thanks.

Thanks Adam, I'm sorry about the Malwarebytes link. Sites try to prevent you from downloading software without visiting their site so they do checks to prevent it.

The link provided by Seth should take you to a more generic site with a list of mirror locations you can choose to download it from.
