Hello all!

I'm a new member. I'm running ZoneAlarm Pro, and there have been a growing number of programs attempting to access the Internet. I have been denying access, but can't seem to figure out what these programs are. One even seems to reside in a Temp directory?

They may be benign, or they may be trouble. Here is the list:
  • wcpsvit.exe - sear1 MFC application
  • hcla.exe
  • WinTools.exe
  • Edow_
That last one I do not remember the entire name.

Thanks,

D.

Hi dadepfan, welcome to GTG! <_<

Looks to all be spware--likely trying to contact a central server to report your surfing habits, and download targeted pop-up ads.

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

PS - I had already run SpyBot Search & Destroy before my first post here. I had it fix everything if found. The items I put in bold above are two of the three that are trying to access the Internet all the time.

Thanks,
D.

Reboot in safe mode (by tapping F8 at startup and select safe mode from the menu). Be sure you're able to view hidden files and folders, and remove the following files in bold:

C:\Documents and Settings\DAVID\Application Data\hcla.exe <-- This File
C:\WINDOWS\System32\wcpsvit.exe <-- This File
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe <-- This File (RealOne Player spyware)

Next, please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch = res://C:\PROGRA~1\Toolbar\toolbar.dll/sa
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName =
O16 - DPF: {9EB320CE-BE1D-4304-A081-4B4665414BEF} (MediaTicketsInstaller Control) - http://www.mt-downlo...tsInstaller.cab

The following are optional and not reuired (fix the ones you don't use, they're using up your RAM):
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime (Quicktime Tray Icon)
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [MSMSGS] "C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe" /background (MSN Messenger)

Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log. <_<

Sorry for the delay <_< - I was out of town for the weekend.

I did as you requested, and I think it solved the problems - nothing strange attempted to access the Internet after my final reboot.

Here is the "after" HijackThis log:
