Hi I am new here and was recommended by a friend to visit this website for the problem I had with my Windows XP.
So here is the problem, everytime my computor restart, it seems like my computor went thought a massive system restore. All my icon on the desktop is gone, all my setting is back to its orginial state. My Word have to be reinstall again. I have ran a virse scean with Zone Alarm Security Suite and it found nothing, I also scan for spyware and found nothing. This problem can be fix by using System Restore to a date before the problem started to appear, but everytime I turn off my computor and start up again, it has the same problem. I think this problem started the day after I uninstall McAfee Virsescan. I will put a copy of the hackit log for people to check and see if there is anything wrong with my computor.

The HJT Log should include 023 list

Please go here:

Malware Removal Guide

Run all the programmes as advised then post a current Hijack This Log in a new topic in the Malware Forum

For the purpose of accurate malware analysis, Hijack This Logs are only dealt with in the Malware Forum. Posting them anywhere else will result in a delayed response

If you are unable to run any of the programmes, ask for advice in the Malware Forum

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files, you need the XP CD.

Windows File Protection will show an on screen blue progress bar which will simply disappear when the scan is complete, reboot when it does

System File Checker gives an administrator the ability to scan all protected files to verify their versions. If System File Checker discovers that a protected file has been overwritten, it retrieves the correct version of the file from the cache folder %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.

System File Checker also checks and repopulates the cache folder. You must be logged on as an administrator or as a member of the Administrators group to run System File Checker.

The System File Check is only concerned with replacing missing or corrupt system files, and does not affect installed software or data

If you do not have an XP CD then you can borrow a same version as was originally installed XP CD, if you downloaded SP2 then you need an SP1 XP CD

So I should post another Hijackthis log on the Malware Removal Forum?
Also when I ran Hijackthis, I saved the complete log then posted.
So for right now, I should get a Windows XP cd and run sfc / scannow right?

Here is the updated hijackthis log with 023

I will reply since Keith is not here at the moment.

So I should post another Hack it log on the Malware Removal Forum?

Yes, you should so that GTG staff can take a look.

Also when I ran Hack it, I saved the compleat log then posted.

Run a new scan and send it through to the malware forum.

So for right now, I should get a Windows XP cd and run sfc / scannow right?

After you have posted through your Hijackthis log, you should complete the steps Keith has given you.

Cool :whistling:

Another question that I have is if I can use any Windows XP SP 1 CD if my Windows was a pre-install OEM Windows XP SP 1.

I removed your HJT logs because they do not belong in this section. Please start a new thread in the malware removal forum.

Thread closed.
