    Default Think I have a Trojan- HJT log inside

    I kept getting pop-ups from AVG saying I had Trojans, and am trying to figure out if I got rid of them. Housecall & Panda both said everything was clean, but AVG found 15 viruses (trojans), which it then fixed. I've downloaded all the MS Critical Updates, ran CWShredder, and ran AdAware. I can't get Spybot to work as it freezes eveytime the "Creating System Restore" window comes up. Things are still running slow, does the HJT log show anything?

    Housecall & Pandasoft didn't find anything, either of them. But the AVG scan I ran after that found 15 viruses. I just ran AVG again, and it found 11 more.

    It looks like I wasn't signed in when I posted that... Anyway, neither Housecall or Pandasoft can find anything.

    My apologies... next time I get the pop-up, I will write the whole thing down (the name of the file it was located in was a hugely long string of characters so I didn't copy it down the first time).

    I ran HJT, fixed all, then started in safe mode and deleted what I was instructed to. The new HJT log looks like this:

    Also, in response to your question, I did get rid of Ads234 recently. I started getting pop-ups two days ago and when I went into my add/remove programs list, midADdle was on there, so I got rid of it. Subsequent AdAware scans found some lingering midADdle files still on my computer, which I also deleted.

    Hi

    The Midaddle uninstall doesn't do a clean job, that's why i don't bother recommending it.

    You've just got rid of some lingering Ads234 run keys from the registry as well.

    You still have this :-

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MyPointsPointAlert0] "C:\Program Files\MyPoints_PointAlert\MyPointsPointAlert0.exe"

    Do you want it ?

    It's new and there's no information on it, but it looks like a clone of several other adware\spyware programs.
