  1. You should not have to re-install Avast. Make sure SAS is updated, then proceed to uninstall Avast, but instead of choosing Uninstall, choose Repair. Once the repair is complete, restart the computer and Avast should be fine.
  2. Hi utalice. I suggest you note your product key and uninstall SAS with this tool: http://www.superantispyware.com/supportfaqdisplay.html?faq=47 Following that, reinstall SAS from the home site.
  3. 1) Disable System Restore. 2) Run a quick scan with MB and SAS from Normal Mode. Remove anything each may find. However, if SAS finds System.BrokenFileAssociation HKCR\.exe, then Trust/Allow it. 3) Restart the computer and enable System Restore. 4) If you still can't enable the Security Settings options, then run CF as per the instructions I gave in a previous post.
  4. I wouldn't recommend running system restore, as many infections will infect the restore points. Go ahead and reset the restore points by disabling SR, then enabling it. Are you still not able to turn on your security settings options?
  5. The detected items that are not selected by default, are "Grey Area" malware. That is, they're not significant threats and antimalware companies could be sued by automatically removing them. MyWebSearch is an example of such: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MyWay_Searchbar
  6. The most practical option right now is to backup any important data from your sons account, then delete the account and create a new one for him.
  7. The MalwareBytes log shows that those registry items were fixed. Disable System Restore, run MB and SAS, and make sure those items are checked off in the threats found list. If the issue still remains following that, then run ComboFix as advised.
  8. You seem apt, so let's work with this. - Disable System Restore. -Boot the computer into "Safe Mode With Networking". - Run Combofix and ignore any warnings that your antivirus program running (if you receive them). - Update Combofix and/or the Recovery Console if Combofix requests it. - Once the procedure starts, don't use the computer until the Combofix log appears (about 10-30 mins).
  9. You're welcome. Make sure your Security Center options are enabled, then download ComboFix: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/anti-virus/combofix - Boot the computer into "Safe Mode With Networking". - Run Combofix and ignore any warnings that your antivirus program running (if you receive them). - Update Combofix and/or the Recovery Console if Combofix requests it. - Once the procedure starts, don't use the computer until the Combofix log appears (about 10-30 mins). How does the system run now?
  10. Run "Unhide" on the system: http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/unhide.exe
  11. Hi Yurd. Are you running any sort of startup utility manager? (Note that some antivirus programs will have such a utility). If not, the first step is to note your product key, then re-install. Uninstall with this tool: http://www.superantispyware.com/supportfaqdisplay.html?faq=47 Other than that, there may be an infection on the system that may be an infection that is preventing the auto start.
  12. Hello. Run the following SAS .exe fix, then update SAS and run a complete scan (all on your son's account). http://www.superantispyware.com/downloads/SAS_FixEXEfile.com
  13. Hello. Run the SAS .exe fix: http://www.superantispyware.com/downloads/SAS_FixEXEfile.com
