Hi!

Been here before for help and everything has been working great for me. Every now and then I run Hijack This to see if my system is clean based on past logs that I was helped to clean. Upon doing one of those checks I came up with this log:

Logfile of HijackThis v1.97.7

Should I be worried about the Unknown Files? <_<

Thanks.

You didn't post your whole log. Please Download LSPFix from http://www.cexx.org/lspfix.htm and run the program. Disconnect from the internet and close all Internet Explorer windows. Check the "I know what I'm doing" Button and remove all traces of c:\windows\system32\inetadpt.dll. Reboot. Then post a new COMPLETE log.

Thank You,

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN :D

If everything seems to be working okay you can delete the Hijack This folder.

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use).

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page. Link to SpywareBlaster:
http://www.javacools...areblaster.html

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

I also suggest you install an anti-virus program. AVG has a great free anti-virus. Be sure to keep it updated:
http://www.grisoft.c...s_dwnl_free.php

Make sure your Windows Firewall is turned on. To do this:
1. "Start", "Control Panel"
2. "Network and Internet Connections"
3. Then, "Network Connections" at the bottom
4. Right-click on your internet connection, and choose "Properties"
5. Under the "Advanced" tab, check the box for the "Internet Connection Firewall"

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. <_<
