Hello gjprice

From Add/Remove Programs (via Control Panel), please uninstall the below:
  • BabylonObjectInstaller
  • BitComet 1.29

__

Reboot your computer

__

Delete the following items if they still exist:
  • C:\Documents and Settings\G Price\Application Data\Babylon <== Folder

Please download and run ComboFix and attach its log.
Read these instructions on how to use it: How to use ComboFix
Do not uninstall ComboFix yet as we may need it to fix remaining malware issues.

Please download Disable/Remove Windows Messenger to your desktop.
  • Double-click MessengerDisable.exe to run it.
  • Place checkmarks in "Uninstall Windows Messenger" and "Hide Messenger from Outlook Express"
  • Click Apply
  • Click Exit

__

Fixing items using ComboFix
Make sure that ComboFix.exe that you downloaded earlier -- but do not run it.
If it is not on your desktop, the below will not work.
Shut down your protection software now (antivirus, antispyware...etc) to avoid possible conflicts.
Open Notepad and copy/paste the text in the below code box into Notepad:
Code:
KillAll::
ClearJavaCache::
FireFox::
FF - ProfilePath - c:\documents and settings\G Price\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\7fcpva8i.default\
FF - prefs.js: browser.startup.homepage - hxxp://isearch.claro-search.com/?affID=115131&tt=120812_bandext_3312_4&babsrc=HP_iclro&mntrId=9809dff70000000000000016764b1b7f
FF - user.js: yahoo.ytff.general.dontshowhpoffer - true);user_pref(extensions.claro.id, 9809dff70000000000000016764b1b7f
FF - user.js: extensions.claro.instlDay - 15566
FF - user.js: extensions.claro.vrsn - 1.6.4.1
FF - user.js: extensions.claro.vrsni - 1.6.4.1
FF - user.js: extensions.claro_i.vrsnTs - 1.6.4.119:35
FF - user.js: extensions.claro.prtnrId - claro
FF - user.js: extensions.claro.prdct - claro
FF - user.js: extensions.claro.aflt - babsst
FF - user.js: extensions.claro_i.smplGrp - none
FF - user.js: extensions.claro.tlbrId - iclaro
FF - user.js: extensions.claro.instlRef - sst
FF - user.js: extensions.claro.dfltLng - en
FF - user.js: extensions.claro.excTlbr - false
FF - user.js: extensions.claro.admin - false
FileLook::
c:\windows\system32\drivers\cbfs3.sys
Registry::
[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce]
"adaware"=-
"adaware_XP"=-
[HKLM\~\services\sharedaccess\parameters\firewallpolicy\standardprofile\GloballyOpenPorts\List]
"20454:TCP"=-
"20454:UDP"=-
Save this file as CFScript.txt to your desktop. So now you should have both CFScript.txt and ComboFix.exe on your desktop.
Now use your mouse to drag CFScript.txt on top of ComboFix.exe and then release.

This will launch ComboFix.
Note: Do not mouse-click ComboFix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.
Allow ComboFix to update itself if prompted.
When ComboFix finishes, a log will be produced at C:\ComboFix.txt
Attach this log to your next message. (How to attach)

__

Now run C:\MGtools\GetLogs.bat by double-clicking it.
This updates all of the logs inside MGlogs.zip.
When it is finished, attach C:\MGlogs.zip to your next message. (How to attach)

__

Make sure you let me know how things are running after you have completed the above steps!!

The rest of your logs are clean.

If you are not having any other malware related problems, it is time to do our final steps:
  • Any programs we had you download and/or install can be removed at this time.
  • If we had you download and run ComboFix, here is how to uninstall it:
    • Press and hold the Windows key and then press the letter R on your keyboard.
    • This opens the Run dialog box.
    • Copy and paste the below text inside the text-field:
      • "%userprofile%\desktop\ComboFix" /uninstall
    • Now press ENTER
    • ComboFix will extract its files one last time and you should receive a notification that ComboFix has been uninstalled shortly after.
  • You can re-enable your Disk Emulation software at this time via DeFogger.
  • If we had you create or download a registry patch or "fix" script, these can be deleted at this time.
  • Go into the C:\MGtools folder and run the MGclean.bat file to remove additional traces of our tools.
  • Now we will toggle System Restore to remove any infected system restore points.
  • Lastly, here is a guide to protect you from future infections: How to Protect yourself from malware!
  • Be safe
