My computer is running very slow and even slower when I'm logged in under my name (other than the other users of the computer)

I've ran all the scans and nothing was found.

Any assistance you can provide would be great.

Here is my log:

Hello Kimberly and welcome to Geeks to Go

Apologies for your wait.

As an introduction, please note that I am not Superhuman, I do not know everything, but what I do know has taken me years to learn. I am happy to pass on this information to you, but please bear in mind that I am also fallible.

Please note that you should have Administrator rights to perform the fixes. Also note that multiple identity PC’s (family PC’s) present a different problem; please tell me if your PC has more than one individual’s setting, but continue with the fix.

Before we get underway, you may wish to print these instructions for easy reference during the fix, although please be aware that many of the required URLs are hyperlinks in the red names shown on your screen. Part of the fix may require you to be in Safe Mode, which will not allow you to access the internet, or my instructions! (Click the Options drop down near the upper right of the topic. Select Print this topic.)

You have an unremarkable HJT log with one adjustment necessary; I doubt that the adjustment will improve speed at all. Let’s see what we can do.

Since you state that you have already gone through all of the scans we advise before posting, and they have been negative, I don’t propose to ask you to do loads more.

We can do a little bit of housekeeping to see if that helps, but please bear in mind that this is a malware forum, we have other forums for cleaning up OS’s.

You have some 017 entries relating to accenture.com. This is unknown by me, could you please tell me what this is?

To start please download: combofix.exe

Please re-open HiJackThis and scan. Check the boxes next to all the entries listed below.

O16 - DPF: {DF780F87-FF2B-4DF8-92D0-73DB16A1543A} - http://zone.msn.com/...aploader_v5.cab

Now close all windows other than HiJackThis, then click Fix Checked.

Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.

When it has finished, it will produce a log. Please post that log in your next reply.

Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, (all files will highlight), right click any file, click delete, confirm

Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up

Reboot

Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools to run defragmenter

Download, install and run Tune Up 2006 Trial It is a 30-day free trial.

Run Tune Up disc clean up

Run Tune Up registry clean up

Disable your anti virus programme then click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, the screen will lose colour during the process which can take a few minutes and then needs a reboot

Check the anti virus programme is running after the reboot.

Those will have cleared the drive of obsolete software errors

These are suggestions for making the most of the free trial

Click optimize and improve then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor

Hello again

Thanks for the log and explanation.

I see one file for deletion and 3 directories that look suspicious to me.

Please locate these directories and advise me of the files within. If they are empty, just delete them:

C:\c15b6a12c53c3c1a20fe
C:\720a23c822af5fb831fb96
C:\cda462008fc23bfb18daeb3a78cd


This is the file for deletion, it should just delete OK, but if it is stubborn, remove it in safe mode:

C:\Program Files\MSN Gaming Zone\howyqymik.html

How's your PC running now?

Hi there,

After running this part "Disable your anti virus programme then click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, the screen will lose colour during the process which can take a few minutes and then needs a reboot"

My computer has not rebooted fully. It continues to hang when I log in. I've been waiting for about 30 minutes for the computer to load and it hasn't done so yet. I just show the hourglass, and my background, but no icons at all.

I have administrator rights and each user has a different setting.

Can you reboot to safe mode?

Please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.

Hello again

OK, try to do the deletions, in safe mode from post number 4 (this is post 8). It is possible that malware is causing the error.

After doing that, try rebooting normally.

It could also be a corrupted system file, in which case we should run SFC.

Please run System File Checker, to make sure all of your protected files are not corrupt. The scan will automatically replace any corrupt files that it finds.

Click Start
Select Run
At the prompt type sfc /scannow Please note that there is a single space between sfc and /scannow.

Typing this will start the programme, and a box should appear telling you how much longer the process should take.

Sometimes the scan will prompt you for your Windows XP disc upon starting the scan. if this happens please make sure that you can view protected files:My Computer
Tools
Folder Options
View
"Uncheck" Hide protected operating system files.
Then rerun the scan.

Once the scan is complete:

Check your Windows Updates! After using the File Protection Service, you might need to reapply some updates.

Please reboot, and let me know if anything has changed.

Also, please rehide the protected files:My Computer
Tools
Folder Options
View
"Check" Hide protected operating system files.

Thank you Phil..

I have restarted in Safe Mode and I have begun working on your comments in Post #4

You mentioned:

Please locate these directories and advise me of the files within. If they are empty, just delete them:

C:\c15b6a12c53c3c1a20fe - 1 file msxml4-KB927978-enu
C:\720a23c822af5fb831fb96 - Windows Service Pack files (SP2GDR & SP2QFE) and Windows Service Pack Uninstall
C:\cda462008fc23bfb18daeb3a78cd - Several files regarding Windows service Pack

My computer seems to be running faster than what it was prior. Windows doesn't load as fast as it has in the past, but I am happy that it's functioning better.

Thank you so much!!

OK, that all sounds good to me. Just a little bit more to do to prevent further infection.

Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove bad files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programmes changing them. This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected.)

To reset your restore points, please note that you will need to log into your computer with an account which has full administrator access. You will know if the account has administrator access because you will be able to see the System Restore tab. If the tab is missing, you are logged in under a limited account.

(Windows XP)
1. Turn off System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
2. Reboot.

3. Turn ON System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check *Turn off System Restore*.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
I recommend going to the following link and update as recommended by Microsoft. This adds more security and extra features including a pop-up blocker for Internet Explorer. Microsoft Update

MVPS Hosts file This replaces your current HOSTS file with one that will restrict known ad sites from serving you unsolicited advertisements. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is the IP of your local computer.

SiteAdvisor download this plug-in for your browser and it will alert you of a known bad site for FREE.

Now that everything is fixed, I suggest that you consider getting these programmes to help keep the computer clean:

SPYWARE BLASTER - Blocks bad ActiveX items from installing on your computer.
WINDOWS DEFENDER - With daily updates and scans, this programme offers good security against malware.
AD-AWARE PERSONAL – A fine free malware detector and removal programme
SPYBOT S&D – Excellent free spyware detector and removal programme
GOOGLE TOOLBAR - Blocks many unwanted pop-ups in Internet Explorer.
FIREFOX - Safer alternative to the Internet Explorer web browser.
AVG ANTIVIRUS FREE EDITION - Free antivirus programme if you currently are not using one.
ZONEALARM - Free firewall programme if you currently are not using one (Windows XP has a built-in firewall).

Remember to update these frequently.

Please note that whilst there is nothing wrong in having more than one antispyware programme for “on demand” scanning, having two or more antivirus systems is not recommended as they may well cause conflicts and slowness.

You may also want to read "How did I get infected in the first place" to learn how to better secure your computer.

Be sure to keep your Windows, antispyware and antivirus updated. :whistling:

It just remains for me to wish you happy safe surfing; I hope you found my advice helpful.
