Here are the files you requested.

MSN home page redirects to an address that's about 3 lines long. I copied it if you want to see it.

Most of the key strokes in the directory containing the antivirus files take 30-45 seconds.

Did TDSSKiller produce a log ?

When I start Explorer, MSN is redirected to a big, long address and Explorer doesn't allow me to connect to
any websites. I have another, clean HDD I can try, but as soon as I connect to the web, I'm sure this bug
will be right back. We have a router with other computers on it, but I shut them off when I'm running this.
The bug starts off slowly, then gets worse and worse when I connect to the web. I've tried hooking directly
to the router (Verison MyFi), but the results are the same.
One problem I have is that we have only 10GB a month and it only takes a few MS updates to surpass that.
Any ideas will be appreciated.

Thanks.

Delete your current copy of OTL please as a new one has been released, and we will check out IE 


Download OTL  to your Desktop
  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.

  • Select All Users
  • Under the Custom Scan box paste this in
netsvcs
BASESERVICES
%SYSTEMDRIVE%\*.exe
HKLM\SOFTWARE\CLIENTS\Startmenuinternet|command /rs
CREATERESTOREPOINT

  • Click the Quick Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
    • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
    • Post both logs

You have both AVG and Avast one of them must be installed.  Also IE is at version 7 and should be updated to IE9.   Do any other computers using the router experience similar problems ?

I've been trying to get rid of AVG, but this computer won't allow it. We have two other laptops on this router, one
with Avast and one with Avast. Win Defender is on from time to time.
The computer we're concerned with had AVG and I changed it to Avast, trying to remove AVG.I have a removal tool,
but the PC won't always cooperate.

I hate to take up all your time, I know there are others that need your help, but I wonder if changing to a new HDD,
staying off the internet would be a better way to find this thing?

Thanks, N

If you change the HDD would you install a fresh copy of windows onto it ?

When I turned it on this morning, I got the message"Registry corrupted" and was unable to boot so I installed
the new hard drive with a fresh Windows Vista. The Net is off and the machine is turned off. I wasn't on long enough
to tell if any malware is there, but I'm sure it is. What should I run to tell?

Run OTL on it initially.  Only install the antivirus, nothing else at this stage

While installing the M/B drivers it shut off with "Usb device not recognized" and "Logging off". I did get Avast on it
without problems. Can I update Avast without going online? That's when it goes to hell.

Here's the OTL log:

OK that is a clean install, no unusual programmes evident

Now update Avast and windows by going online just to those sites

Any problems after this ?

I updated Avast and D/L Nvidia drivers. I got a few errors, but they seem to apply mostly to drivers. I still get the MS home page redirect, but I don't see it
on Google. I don't know how serious that is. If you think we're OK, I'll muddle on and see what happens.

Thanks for your time and help.
