It's possible the virus is still on there or it corrupted a system file.


I would try to take precautions and have a Trusted advisor look at some logs.




Please download DDS and save it to your desktop.

  • Disable any script blocking protection
  • Double click dds.scr to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    • DDS.txt
    • Attach.txt
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
Please include the contents of both logs in your next reply. The scan will instruct you to post the attach log as an attachment.

No need for that though ..... just post it as you would any other log.


Don't post these logs in this thread you've created, wrong forum.


Next please go to the HJT forum Here

Start a new thread, then paste the contents of your DDS log there. asking for help and be descriptive as possible about your problem. A Trusted Advisor will assist you.
