You will be asked to run additional diagnostic tools when a helper replies to your post.
Additional Tips:* Please DO NOT post another program’s log, unless we specifically ask for it, but do let us know what other scans you have run. Additional logs can be helpful, but can also complicate the initial diagnosis. Please note that Combofix should NEVER be run unless requested. While it is a powerful tool useful for removing a number of infections, there can be mishaps. There are safeguards built into Combofix, but only someone trained in its use will be able to interpret the logs correctly and help you recover. * Please include the header of any log that you post. (It contains important information for the Analysts.) * Please do not include suspicious links. You may, however describe the type or name of sites that you are having a problem with. By using links, you would be putting other members at risk if they click on them by accident. If you need to give information about sites that you are redirected to, please disable the links by using hxxp:// instead of http://* Please do not post a reply to your own thread until someone else has done so. The analysts look for unanswered topics. If they see 1 or more replies they may assume that you are already being helped.
