    Hi theteebone

    You replied to a very old thread- we advise that you always start a new thread when asking for help with malware. I've moved your post to it's own thread, please continue here.

    Here is what to do first:

    go to Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
    • Click the blue "Download the Hijackthis Installer" link
    • Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop. DO NOT just press run from the website
    • Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
    • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialogue.
    • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
    • Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then save the log and then the log will open in Notepad.
    • Don't use the Analyse This button, its findings are dangerous if misinterpreted
    • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
    • Paste the log in your next reply.
    • DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

    Please also do this:
    • Open Hijack This and click on the "Open the Misc Tools section" button.
    • Click on the "Open Uninstall Manager" button.
    • Click the "Save List" button. After you click the "Save List" button, you will be asked where to save the file. Pick a place to save it then the list should open in notepad.
    • Copy and paste that list here in your reply

    How do you know something is scanning your download?

    I have no folder called privacy_danger under Windows folder.

    I'm not sure what you mean by someone scanning your download...

    Antivirus or other security programs, might scan files that you download as they come into the computer, yes...but that is good.

    You do need to post a Hijackthis log in order for us to help you remove any malware that may be present.

    Hi,

    You missed this part of my last reply:

    Next:

    *You will need to follow these directions carefully- below there is a link to a page that shows you what programs you must temporarily turn off/disable protection in, so that you can use the ComboFix tool.

    Running the simple scan with ComboFix is easy, just follow the directions, and post the text log it produces when it is done, usually afterward the computer will restart itself but, this does not happen every time.

    COMBO FIX:
    Please read all through the info so you know what will be done.
    Directions and tips for using ComboFix:
    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

    There is a Printable Version button up under the Thread Tools drop down menu that will let you print a nice text version of these instructions.
    Alternate way to save directions:Open Notepad> Copy and Paste any text you wish into Notepad, and Save the file as something you will recognize like TSGhelp.txt and save it onto your desktop.
    Important notes regarding ComboFix:

    ComboFix may reset a number of Internet Explorer's settings, including making it the default browser.

    Combofix also prevents autorun of ALL CDs, floppies and USB devices to assist with malware removal & increase security. If this is an issue or makes it difficult for you, please let me know

    Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

    **Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**
    1. Close any open browsers.
    2. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
      -----------------------------------------------------------​
      • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
      • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
        -----------------------------------------------------------​
      • Close any open browsers.
      • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
      • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
      • If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.
      -----------------------------------------------------------​

    3. Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
    4. When finished, it will produce a report for you.
    5. Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" in your next reply..And, after you are done posting the log from ComboFix....run Hijackthis again, Scan and Save a Log....post the brand new log
    **Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**
