My dad had mcafee, unistalled it, cuz it sucks...norton has been on there, but i didn't think it was active...now he has avira...installed it yesterday i believe...it's just that the mcafee was uninstalled in the midst of the beginning of the malware problem...does that make sense?

Yes makes perfect sense. Just needed to clarify. Now...P2P? Gaming?

The P2P and gaming is probably my sister who no longer lives there..so it won't be an issue any longer

Ok, give me a new HJT log and also do a new Uninstall list generated by HJT. Then I can give you what hopefully will be the final steps and get your Dad surfing safe and happy.

Ok, heading down the stretch here.....
There are still some Uninstalls I would recommend, your choice really but here goes:
Ad-Aware (why you have two copies I don't know but the program itself just isn't what it used to be. I would uninstall everything here with Ad-Aware on it.
Ad-Aware
Ad-Aware Email Scanner for Outlook
Adobe AIR - Unless your Dad is a web developer of some kind this isn't needed either, also don't know why two copies show but uninstall both
Adobe AIR
Bing Bar-does he use Bing? If not uninstall
Driver Detective - doesn't get very good reviews, uninstall
iDump (Freeware) Build:29 does your Dad use this? I had to search to find out what this was and frankly sounds like a stupid program,

The days of lame excuses are finally over. Download iDump and start faking excuses today!

...but if he likes it...leave it I guess.
Norton Security Scan - maybe a leftover listing or possibly from their online scanner, I don't know but uninstall.
Spooky Halloween - have no idea what this is...game, video? Uninstall.
iTunes is there, if heor somebody there has an iPod leave it, if he doesn't then iTunes can go also. But that's up to you.

Also the Java is out of date on this machine so a new copy should be downloaded from HERE choose the Offline Install and save it to the desktop. Then Uninstall that one old version showing in Add/Remove. Once it's uninstalled then install the new version. Watch the installer, often times it comes with some extra toolbars, like yahoo. If you see that just take the check mark out and continue with the install. When the install is complete then go back to the download page and click Verify Now on the right side to go to the verification page to be certain the install was successful.

You should uninstall HiJackThis, you don't need it any more.

You also should uninstall combofix. It basically is a "one time" fix.
If a person is told to use it again some other time then a new copy would be needed.

Then you need to uninstall combofix.
Do it this way: * Click START then RUN
* Now type ComboFix /Uninstall in the runbox and click OK. The space between the combofix and the /uninstall, it must be there.
When shown the disclaimer, Select "2"

Keep the MBA-M, have him UPDATE first each time and scan at least weekly using the Quick Scan. Have it remove all items found. If something IS found then tell him to update again, just to be sure, and do a Full System scan, again removing all found.
If nothing is found then great!
Also install SpywareBlaster. Superb program, wouldn't run a computer without it.

SpywareBlaster doesn't scan for and clean spyware--it prevents it from being installed in the first place. SpywareBlaster prevents the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, dialers, browser hijackers, and other potentially unwanted programs. It can also block spyware/tracking cookies in IE, Mozilla Firefox, Netscape, and many other browsers, and restrict the actions of spyware/ad/tracking sites.

Download, install, update, enable all and close the program, that's it. Just have him manually check for updates weekly, doesn't have them often but usually a couple times a month it does. If there is an update, install, enable all and close the program again.

Finally;
You also need to set a new, clean Restore point.
To do this Right Click My computer.
Choose Properties
When System Properties opens choose the System Restore Tab.
Place a check mark in Shut down System Restore.
You will probably get a message telling you it will be shut down, click ok or yes.
Allow it to shut down.
Wait a moment. Then go back in and take that check mark Out so that System Restore will turn back on.
Do all that and I think we are finished...whew! As my grandson says, "you did good".
If all is well then you can mark this solved.
