Can't access the link with either IE8, Firefox (get the msg "Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at eset.com"), or Google Chrome.

Plan B?

Well... so much for Plan B. Using a Dell disk, I reloaded the Win 7 OS ( which puts everything to factory level ) got back here... went to that link again, and my IE8 gives me "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage".

Do you still want the file ComboFix.txt (?)... cus I have a directory, now, labeled Qoobox with that file included.


Perhaps I should first try to fix my IE8. Perhaps I should just forget about windows Updates and go on with my life. The sun is out, perhaps I should just go outside.

Just a thought. Some how some bad thing is hanging in there. If it was my computer and I went through what all you folks have I would wipe my drive with one of many 3rd party programs like Drive Scrubber at least 4 times Remove anything that is plugged into the computer that you don't need to do a clean install. For sure the printer because some of them have memory. Notice I did not tell you to save anything. Do a clean install with a legal Windows 7 disc. Once everything is working properly check to make sure it's activated with Microsoft. Then don't install all those p2p and torrents ect. They are probably where you got what ever this thing is you got. I don't care what security is on a computer if the owner/operator let those types of things by the security this whole mess starts again. There is more than enough information on the net to keep a person reading for days about the bad things that happen with p2p and torrents.

Adding to what Layback Bear said could something be hiding on the partition? Like myself Zarnic has a OEM Installed OS and like most OEM OS's the Operation system is on a Partition in my case it's the "D" drive. I did not even get any OS discs with my system HP includes a tool that lets you burn a set of your own. CAN a virus creep on to the partition?

Thank You All for your thoughts and suggestions. It may very well be that P2P and torrents are the culprit. However, where I got it really means little, how to get rid of whatever-it-is means more.

Perhaps I misunderstood what is ment by a 'clean' install... isn't a manufacturers' disc, an OEM Win 7 OS disc, considered 'clean'? If not then I need educating.

Jacee has spent a lot of her spare time trying to work this out and to her I owe a lot.

I think that after so many years of being infection-free it is probably fitting that now I'm not. Sort of a payback thing.
