Alright, i picked this problem up a while back but have been too lazy to fix it so it seems to have been snowballing and now I've got a whole range of problems.
When I first picked it up I had Spybot's S&D teamtimer resident running which alerted me to a registry changed which i denied. But whatever it was kept trying to make the change so i got flooded with teatimers reg change denied messages and eventually killed teatimer....
Initially it was then just browser hijacking. I use mozilla and sometimes i'd get redirected to random sites and IE would also (and still does) get forcefully opened when i open mozilla and at random times while it is open.

I then first did my regular Cleanup! run & then did spyware scans with Spybot S&D, Agnitum Outpost, Ad-aware and ran AVG antivirus full system scans. I picked up some spyware which I'd remove with whatever picked it up but most of it would just reappear after the next reboot.

Then I'd get windows error messages about missing .dll files when booting into windows (don't seem to be system .dll files) which i assume is caused by the anti-spyware progs not completely removing bits and pieces.
Next best thing was then that when booting into windows explorer wouldn't start up so I'd have to add explorer as a new task in windows task manager to even see my desktop.

I ran a checkdisk on my system drive which would fix that particular problem but again it comes back after a while. So.....sound like fun? :techsupport:

Any help is much appreciated and here is my hijackthis log fresh as of a few minutes ago:

Hello,

Your system is terribly infected. Problem with these infections nowadays is, it causes a lot of damage. Even if we clean the malware off your system, I can't guarantee that your system will be clean afterwards, because these infections/bundles leave a lot of leftovers behind that most scanners won't even recognise and logs won't show.
Also, I can't promise you we can repair all the damage it caused... Even after cleaning the malware, you can still get errors afterwards because of the damage. Solving these is not always possible since it will be searching for a needle in a haystack to find the right cause and solution.
So, we can try to clean this up and do what we can, but keep in mind that we can't solve ALL problems this malware already caused.

In light of this it would be wise for you to back up any files and folders that you don't want to lose before we start. Reason I am telling this is because when a system is so terribly infected and we try to clean this up manually, the damage that is already present may interfere with our removal attempts.

* Download Combofix to your desktop.
Doubleclick combofix.exe
Follow the prompts.
Don't click on the window while the fix is running, because that will cause your system to hang.

When finished and after reboot (in case it asks to reboot), it should open a log, combofix.txt.
Post this log in your next reply together with a new hijackthislog.
Do NOT post the ComboFix-quarantined-files.txt - unless I ask you to.
