Here's the problem. All of a sudden the IE tabs function stopped working. I've made sure and set options to allow tabs, but when I right click on a link, the only option available is to open in a new window.

Also, I can no longer change my background. I've tried by right clicking on the desktop itself and by going through control panel, but no luck. In fact, the background tab is completely missing. Only tabs for Themes, Screen Saver, Appearance, Settings appear. I created a new profile and that one could change the background, but the profile I usually use cannot.

I don't know if it is spyware related or not but I've attached a hijackthis log below and would appreciate any help from someone who knows how to read them. Thanks!!

‡‡I would suggest though that you download CCleaner. It is a great little program that I use every time I close my browser to

get rid of temporary files. I usually just run the cleaner part every time I'm done with the browser.During the install there will be check

marks for checking for updates that part I do not use and also to install a tool bar for yahoo or something. Make sure those are unchecked

unless you want another tool bar, It is a very safe program and it is free.(CCleaner Quick Setup: Go to > Options > Advanced > Uncheck "Only

delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours" for cleaning malware. files!)

I am not the most IT pro here but this may help. Do you have Office XP installed on your computer?
I had problems with Office XP and Bitlord original version inserting a trojan dropper.
I came here to find out about the Inferno log file that kept popping up under notepad. For anyone who has had that and worried about it, it is a handwriting keylogger of sorts which is built into office xp. You can't remove it but you can remove it. To learn how, go to ask.com and type in inferno log file . It will show you how to remove it. As for the Trojan issue scan with AVG for heuristically scanning . Avast is also a decent free program. good luck hope this helps

You are using NIS 2006 which is quite old and your pc is fairly infected...

Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.36, install it and run a scan...save the logfile and reboot..

After Reboot Run HJT and do as said about it in post #2 and so also mark the following entries alongwith those mentioned in post #2 if they exist..

F2 - REG:system.ini: UserInit=C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,C:\WINDOWS\system32\secpol.exe,

O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {224E1433-F086-4BB1-B791-AF87F7629D93} - (no file)

O21 - SSODL: jetctrl - {1F5087DB-7FAB-488B-B371-6A98F2A82A70} - (no file)

Now reboot your computer and run HJT and save the logfile which you must post here alongwith the previous MBAM logfile..
