    Hello majorgeeks and thanks for all the help you give us.

    I went through the read and run me first thread and performed the various scans. I also removed all java running environment programs and installed the latest version (after the scans).

    Here are my logs. The AVG antispyware log was not generated, even though I did exactly like the thread said so that log is missing. It found a bunch of tracking cookies and a adware item that was quarantined. Should I try again? I made sure to put always generate log...but it wont show up when i go to the reports tab.

    Please let me know if I have more to clean.:)

    EDIT: I think it might be worth noting that I did this from my user account which is an admin account. As a matter of fact all the user accounts are admin accounts. Will I have to repeat the scans for other accounts? Also, I toggled system restore already (probly will have to do it again, im sure)

    Your logs are clean...though there are a few things we can do:

    Please use add/remove programs to uninstall:
    J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 11"
    J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 3"
    Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.2_01"
    Java(TM) 6 Update 2"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 1

    Now reboot and install:
    Java Runtime 6

    Now Copy the bold text below to notepad. Save it as fixME.reg to your desktop. Be sure the "Save as" type is set to "all files" Once you have saved it double click it and allow it to merge with the registry.
    Now it is time to do our final steps:

    1. If we used Pocket Killbox during your cleanup, do the below
    * Run Pocket Killbox and select File, Cleanup, Delete All Backups
    2. If we used ComboFix, you can delete the ComboFix.exe file, C:\ComboFix folder, C:\QooBox folder, C:\WINDOWS\nircmd.exe, C:\combofix.txt and C:\ComboFix-quarantined-files.txt logs that was created.
    3. If we user SDFix you can delete all the SDFix related files and folders from your Desktop or whereever you installed it.
    4. If we used SmitFraudFix, you can delete all files and folders related to it now including the c:\rapport.txt log.
    5. If we used VundoFix, you can delete the VundoFix.exe file and the C:\VundoFix Backups folder and C:\vundofix.txt log that was created.
    6. If we had your run FixWareOut, you can delete the Fixwareout.exe file and the C:\fixwareout folder.
    7. If we had you run Avenger, you can delete all files related to Avenger now.
    8. If we had you download any registry patches like fixme.reg or fixWLK.reg (or any others), you can delete these files now.
    9. You can delete the C:\MGtools folder and the C:\MGtools.exe file. You can also delete the C:\MGlogs.zip
    10. If you are running Windows XP or Windows ME, do the below:
    * Refer to the cleaning steps in the READ ME for your Window version and see the steps to Disable System Restore which will flush your Restore Points.
    * Then reboot and Enable System Restore to create a new clean Restore Point.
    11. After doing the above, you should work thru the below link:
    * How to Protect yourself from malware!

    Thank you for the help.

    I did as you told me except that I could'nt find the two files here:

    C:\ComboFix folder
    C:\ComboFix-quarantined-files.txt files

    That is nothing to worry about is it?

    - Thanks again TimW

    It's not a problem ....make sure you run:
    ATF Cleaner by Atribune
    to keep your temp files clean.

    Safe surfing ...:)
