Hello and let me say first; thank you volunteer for taking a look. I got infected by something through accidently clicking "no" on something to do with not having the right flash update installed. Almost immediatley I unplugged and began cleaning. (firewall, antivirus turned off and a "xp security center scanner" popped up) I think Im clean the only thing that bothers me is that Rootrepeal would not run. I ran it from desktop a couple of times but it did not seem to be going. So I started in Safemode and just let it run. When I ran it there were no file paths popping up in the main window but below that (around the stop button) the file path had changed so I assumed it was doing something. The bottom status bar never changed from initialzing hidden/locked. Well after 4 days and it was finally to windows/uninstall servicesomthing I decided to stop it (I still had a few more drives to go and didnt want to wait a few months) Besides that I had forgotten to install java. I did that before my post though. Thanks for all your help and I hope you are having a wonderful winter. Destructo oh and the dates in the logs mglogs differ from the others because I had rootrepeal going for so long. It was in safemode without networking.
