Im really sorry to keep repeating the 'Aurora' thing but i'm really stuck. I hardly the most computer literate person in the world and i'm struggling to understand the instructions you've given to other people.

My computer keeps getting aurora pop-ups. I've recently installed adaware and HijackThis. HijackThis gave me a log file, but i don't understand what to do after that.
Thank you in advance for your help!!!

You have more than just the Aurora infection, but let's work on Aurora first. The removal process should clean up some of the other nasties as well:

You will need to disconnect from the Internet for most of the cleaning procedures, so you should print out the following instructions or save them into a text file using Notepad.

Download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite here:
Install it, and update the definitions to the newest files. Do NOT run a scan yet.

Download Nailfix from here:
Unzip it to the desktop but please do NOT run it yet.

Next, reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
1) Restart your computer
2) After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
4) Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.

For additional help in booting into Safe Mode, see the following site:

Once in Safe Mode, double-click on Nailfix.cmd. Your desktop and icons will disappear and reappear, and a window should open and close very quickly --- this is normal.

Then run Ewido, and run a full scan. Save the logfile from the scan.

Next run HijackThis, click Scan, and check:

F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe

Close all open windows except for HijackThis and click Fix Checked.

Restart your computer in normal mode and please post a new HijackThis log, as well as the log from the Ewido scan.


My computer wont let me unzip the NailFix files.

It says ' C:\Documents and settings\Kirsty\Desktop\Nailfix.zip:The archive is either in unkown format or damaged'


Can i do this without NailFix?



Try right clicking on the file and select 'Save As.' Save it to your desktop and see if you can unzip it now.


I downloaded the winzip thing, then when i tried to open the Nailfix it said that it hasnt recognised it and i should download it again..
I've tried to download it three times now and it wont work!!

Im really sorry to be so awkward! I dont understand why it wont let me open it!!



Do you have an email addy I can send the unzipped file to? PM me the addy if yes. If you are quick, I will send it before I retire for the night. I need my beauty sleep :mrgreen:


My hotmail account wont let me open the files! I forwarded them to my other non-hotmail account and the server blocked the e-mail..

Something really doesnt want me to sort out my PC!
