Wow, I read all this post and all links within the post just to find that it's likely caused by an infected crack (which also happens to be the most common kind of crack). Wonder what it was doing with your free space though?

There will be new info there, even for a quick scan. I don't remember whether the info is tacked on or is a new log file . Simply attach any log files from the folder listed before so that I can view the log file.

thanks.

Hmmm, let me run it again, it's the same exact log still.

Edit: After the quick scan finishes, it doesn't post anything. I'm doing a custom scan which does a full scan, but only on the C:. I'm excluding my storage drives.

Okay, I wound up deleting the old log and just doing a full scan again since I disabled my storage drives. Didn't take too long. After the scan finished, everything was clear and no suspects came up.

See post #91.

There I've given instructions based up the Startup.Txt file which you posted.

After carrying out post #91, then create a new startup.txt file and attach to your next post.

Sorry, I'm not following, this is what I did after I ran the scan the first time. The startup.txt file is after the scan. I'll do it again though.

Edit: Okay here it is. It's the same startup list.
