Hello! Thanks in advance for any help you can offer...I don't know too much about this stuff.

Last night, my computer starting randomly playing a broadcast even though nothing was open to play it on - it was just audio playing by itself....

The computer was also lagging a lot and an error message stating "server busy" and the message:
"This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy. Choose "switch to" to activate the busy program and correct the problem."
keeps popping up."

I also realized that I can't open the control panel unless I am in Safe Mode.

I ran McAfee, Adaware, Spyware Blaster, Hijack This, CC Cleaner in safe mode. I can't figure out what else to do!

McAfee keeps telling me I have a "Buffer Overflow" in file C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer but I don't even use Internet Explorer or have it open. (I use Mozilla)

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Here is my latest log from Hijack This:

Hi michele842 and welcome to DaniWeb

Download Combofix from any of the links below, and save it to your desktop.

Link 1
Link 2
Link 3

**Note: 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.

If your not sure how to disable them then double-check against the list found >>>HERE<<< This list is not all inclusive, if your programs are not listed and you are unsure then please ask before continuing.


Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.

  • When finished, it will produce a report for you.
  • Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review.

Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall
