I have the same problem as lindsaytuckwood with the error message when opening internet explorer and Norton Internet Security failing to scan. I have already removed and reinstalled Internet Security but it still will not scan. I have downloaded and scanned my computer with GMER as per your instructions and attached the log. I have Intenet Security 2009 version 126.96.36.199. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Solved! Go to Solution.

I am going to ask that your post be separated onto a thread of its own. Your issue may take more time that the original poster and we don't want to lose track of you.

Did you try to scan with NIS2009 in Safe Mode? If not, try that first before we go further. Also, I have asked that these posts be moved to their own thread on the Board so we can concentrate on your problem alone.
Please run Live Update until it says there are no more updates for NIS2009.
Next restart your system and when the system starts loading, tap the F8 key until the Advanced Options menu appears. Use the arrow keys to highlight and select Safe Mode (without networking or command prompt) and press Enter. Once logged in, double click on the NIS2009 desktop icon. A message will appear about not running in Safe Mode; select yes to run the full scan. Post the results of this back here. Thanks.

Now (read carefully) If you have Spybot S&D uninstall it.
1. Download Avenger to your desktop,
Unzipped version http://homepages.slingshot.co.nz/~crutches/Avenger
Creators website http://swandog46.geekstogo.com/avenger2/avenger2.h
2. Click to run "Avenger.exe" (right click "Run as Administrator" if using Vista)
3. In the "Input script here:" copy and paste the script between the lines
Drivers to disable:
Drivers to delete:
Files to delete:
Registry keys to delete:
Here is a screenshot (script updated since shot)
Make sure the "Automatically disable any rootkits found" is NOT selected
4. Click "Execute"
You will be asked to restart the PC click "Yes", when the PC restarts the load screen will takes slightly longer, then when it looks as though windows is loading the PC will restart again.
Then when Windows fully loads the Avenger log will be loaded, showing files it could or could not find.

I downloaded Avenger and followed your instructions. The log is attached. The error message has stopped appearing when I start Internet Explorer and NIS2009 is scanning again. Thankyou so much...it seems the problem is fixed. Will I need to do anything else now?

I ran a Malarebytes' Scan and found 4 things which I removed. The log is attached. Now is this issue resolved?
