Desktop icons are gone and redirects google searches

Post by LokiLove on 27th October 2009, 11:35 pm

I am not very good with computers and have a very basic knowledge of them, so I hope someone can help me. Upon clicking on a website, my computer froze, then was ok, then a bunch of pop ups appeared and then my computer restarted. When it came back on, my desktop background picture was gone and it was just a blue screen, and all of my icons were gone as well. When I went to google to try and find an answer my searches are redirected to other sites like bing.com or I get a message saying "internet explorer cannont display the webpage". I tried running spybot and tried to download other virus scan programs and cannot. I was able to download Malewarebytes, but when I try to open it now I get a message saying I do not have appropriate permissions to access the item.
I am afraid that I have done some damage to my computer and I have no idea how to fix it...Please help me!
Thanks

Hi thanks for your help,
I did the systemlook and this is the notepad that came up, I am not sure if it is finished yet? But the systemlook window closed:

SystemLook v1.0 by jpshortstuff (29.08.09)

========== filefind ==========

Searching for "scecli.dll"

Should I keep waiting or is this what you need?

Hello.
No, the log should be longer.

Can you check the filesize manually here? Find this file:
C:\Windows\system32\eventlog.dll

Right click it, select Properties and let me know the filesize please.

1. Please download The Avenger by Swandog46 to your Desktop
Link: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

  • Click on Avenger.zip to open the file
  • Extract avenger.exe to your desktop
2. Copy all the text contained in the code box below to your Clipboard by highlighting it and pressing (Ctrl+CCrying


Files to delete:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\eventlog.dll

Note: the above code was created specifically for this user. If you are not this user, do NOT follow these directions as they could damage the workings of your system.


3. Now, start The Avenger program by clicking on its icon on your desktop.

  • Under "Input script here:", paste in the script from the quote box above.
  • Leave the ticked box "Scan for rootkit" ticked.
  • Then tick "Disable any rootkits found"
  • Now click on the Execute to begin execution of the script.
  • Answer "Yes" twice when prompted.

    The Avenger will automatically do the following:

  • It will Restart your computer.
  • On reboot, it will briefly open a black command window on your desktop, this is normal.
  • After the restart, it creates a log file that should open with the results of Avengerís actions. This log file will be located at C:\avenger.txt
  • The Avenger will also have backed up all the files, etc., that you asked it to delete, and will have zipped them and moved the zip archives to C:\avenger\backup.zip.
4. Please copy/paste the content of c:\avenger.txt into your reply.
