    I've merged both threads here, as its best to keep to one thread per problem. When you reply to the bit I'm about to post, Look below my reply, and you will see a box to post it into. You may need to split the logs into two parts, just post twice :)


    • Download random's system information tool (RSIT) by random/random from here.
    • It is important that is saved to your desktop.
    • Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.
    • Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
    • Once it has finished, two logs will open. Please post the contents of both log.txt (<<will be maximized) and info.txt (<<will be minimized)

    (y) I have used msconfig and in startup tab unchecked items one by one and it revealed that my ISP is causing such problem and its not the handy work of any spyware or malware. As after unchecking my internet provider,s tool and restart the pc everything was just fine. I think my ISP was endorsing an ad for promotion of a site am I right? If not so please let me know. Thanx for all the assistance you have extended to me in this regard. Have a nice day and bye

    Hiya

    I did look at the site, and couldn't see any problems with it, as in malware etc. However, as you've now solved it, we'll just remove two entries from HijackThis, to clean it up a bit, and then its all okay:

    Re-open HiJackThis and choose do a system scan only. Check the boxes of all the entries listed below.

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Alcmtr] ALCMTR.EXE


    Now close all windows other than HiJackThis, then click Fix Checked. Reboot.


    I'll mark this one Solved for you, but any problems in the future, don't hesitate in asking :)

    (y) Thank you very much for the assistance to solve the issue. I have deleted two entries as per ur instructions. One more thing please let me know I am using AVG free right now. Should I keep SuperAntispywre and Malwarebytes beside it? And what antispyware and antimalware would you recommend for safest surfing for home user?
    Please advise me

    Thanks again.

    This is my close out speech:

    First, let's reset your hidden/system files and folders. System files are hidden for a reason and we don't want to have them openly available and susceptible to accidental deletion.
    • * Click Start.
      * Open My Computer.
      * Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
      * Select the View tab.
      * Under the Hidden files and folders heading UNSELECT Show hidden files and folders.
      * CHECK the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
      * Click Yes to confirm.
      * Click OK.
    Next, let's clean your restore points and set a new one:

    Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs from changing those files. This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected)
    • 1. Turn off System Restore.
      • On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
        Click Properties.
        Click the System Restore tab.
        Check Turn off System Restore.
        Click Apply, and then click OK.
      2. Restart your computer.

      3. Turn ON System Restore.
      • On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
        Click Properties.
        Click the System Restore tab.
        UN-Check Turn off System Restore.
        Click Apply, and then click OK.
    System Restore will now be active again.

    Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programs:
    • SpywareBlaster to help prevent spyware from installing in the first place.
    • SpywareGuard to catch and block spyware before it can execute.
    • IESpy-Ad to block access to malicious websites so you cannot be redirected to them from an infected site or email.
    You should also have a good firewall. Here are 2 free ones available for personal use:and a good antivirus (these are also free for personal use):It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

    To keep your operating system up to date visit monthly. And to keep your system clean run these free malware scanners
    weekly, and be aware of what emails you open and websites you visit.

    To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read this about Security online: General Security Information, How to tighten Security Settings and Warnings


    =====

    As for your question, I would keep MalwareBytes over SuperAntispyware for now.

    I've also removed your email from the above, as you could be open to spam, as programs scan many forums on the web for email addresses. Just a precaution ;)

    I type them like this sometimes:

    [email protected] gmail.com

    Note the space after @, as its not an actual link now :)
