I'm a beginner with pC, in that I used to use other people's PC before, so it is the first time I have to deal with a virus.
I apparently have an adware+virus: the Homepage on Internet Explorer is always"res://qcsmj.dll/index.html#37049" (the letters qcsmj change sometimes, I think when I use some kind of antivirus. In the beginning it was esfhg). When I go change the Home Page in the settings, it always come back to this page. Pop-ups appear often.
I have tried crunchie's method from 4-22-2004 ("Re: Virus, ADware, or just explorer causing malfunctions- res://mshp.dll/http_404.htm"), with CWShredded, Ad-aware, Spybot Search and Destroy, and then Spywareblaster. I did exactly as you said, I believe.
But it did nott work, so I launched HiJackThis, and here are the results in attachment.
I would very much appreciate your help. Frankly, I'm lost, I have no clue what to do, if it is serious, or if it will infect my files (word files, powerpoint, etc). Has someone taken control of part of my computer?
Thank you very much for your help.
