First, download rkill and ComboFix from bleepingcomputer.com (and only from them!!!)

You will need to download from another PC and copy via USB.

Run rkill to terminate virus processes, then run combofix to remove infections.

OR:
Run exeHelper.... and if the problem persists run ComboFix as suggested and attach the logfile here for us to check.
Please download exeHelper.

Double-click on exeHelper.com to run the fix.

My apologies  to the group, I was involved in a near death collision and spent the better part of the last  two weeks in and out of hospital.  As a result, i have not had time to go over these suggestions since I have not been at work but just beginning to do some catch up work via laptop from home.  Please bear with me as I value your service.

Sincerely,

Carl at St. Andrew's UMC

Easy is a relative term when applied to an old geek like me, still got a lot to learn but was able to get similar success with both solutions.  Thanks a bunch.
