Still have the happili virus after following instructions of other thr

Hi I followed these instructions, Need help removing Happili redirect virus twice, and still have the happili virus; is there anything else I can do?

I uploaded my combo log / eset scans

A couple notes: After none of it worked, I tried uninstalling firefox, but my computer wouldn't let me so I simply deleted all the files, and ran some antivirus programs that I saw here. Now, I use google chrome.

I also have this ask toolbar updater that I can't get rid of. I uninstalled the program a long time ago, but for some reason the updater remains. I attached a screenshot to show you clearly.

Awww kelv211, you have a rootkit. I don't work in trying to remove this type of obnoxious infection. Please read this and you'll understand why I suggest a 'wipe and clean OS install'. You can't ever count on your computer to be stable again by just "cleaning". Rootkit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This should help you Clean Install Windows 7

If not, then post your question:
"how to do it? I"ve never wiped and cleaned my OS before"

Thank you

I'd like to ask two things; What happens If I leave the rootkit on my computer? Can a rootkit prevent your computer's CD-R from working?

If all it does is redirect my browser, maybe I can leave it there a while longer. I am hesitant to wipe my system clean not only because I've never done it before, but my CD-R isn't working, which I'm paranoid is because of the rootkit.

Hi,

Leaving a rootkit on your PC will eventually bring it to its knees, and thats not mentioning all the keystrokes it might be sending back to the originator without your knowledge.

A clean install is most definately, without a shadow of a doubt, the best fix.

Regards,
Golden
