    I am having all sorts of problems. I ran stinger and Sophos, cleaned up several viruses.

    Klez
    NoClose
    Elkern
    MSCACHE
    dloader
    Downldr
    Lalus
    winfav-a

    Ran updated spybot and adaware. Regardless of what I do, the pop ups (coolwebsearch) keep coming back. In addition my computer is extremely slow. It also is complaining about not having enough memory. Finally I can not press control alt delete to end processes.

    Here is my log frile from hijackthis. Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help you. I'm out of solutions.

    Hi stumpy5959,

    Before you start, please unzip hijackthis to a separate folder. The program will make backups in the folder in the folder it's in.
    These easily get lost in a Temp folder.

    Check the items listed below in HijackThis, close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

    Download and run: http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/~merijn/files/CWShredder.exe
    Use the Fix button and follow the instructions you will receive.

    Then reboot into safe mode and delete:
    C:\Program Files\ClockSync <= entire folder
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\services\wmplayer.exe <= the one in that folder
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\wtstr.exe

    Then can you see if you can find ths file:
    InjectedSPYBOT.exe
    If you do not know where it came from or what it is please mail it to the address in my profile.

    Then follow the instructions here:
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=162440&postcount=4
    and update Windows and IE

    Regards,

    Pieter

    I got everything removed with hijackthis, however, couldn't find the files in safe mode. Here is my updated hijackthis log file. Anything else that needs to be removed?
