Hi,

I went to the preventions page and did a disk cleanup, and cleaned up prior restore points, but the computer is still slow. I performed a full scan with SuperAntispware and the log is below as well as a new hijackthis log. I still feel the computer is infected. Thank you kindly for your help.

Hi,

What Superantispyware found are only cookies.

Why did you uninstall Avira again? How are you supposed to prevent malware if you uninstalled it again?

I also see that suddenly some HP software was also deleted? Did you delete it? Why?

Can redownload Combofix so I can take a look? Because from what I see here, you've deleted some other programs in between and from what I see here, there are still a lot of orphaned entries related with these programs.
Also, the Combofix log should show if you're still infected...

By the way, can you also tell me what exactly is slow? Is it your Internet? Internet Explorer? Startup? slow in general?
Also tell me your computer specs... How much ram you have etc..

Hi,

I have installed Avira again. I thought it might get infected again if I left it there. I deleted the HP Config and HP WirelessMgr thinking they contained the virus. I am happy to report that I am not getting the annoying pop ups, but still feel the computer is not running to its optimal speed. It's the sound when it boots up it's like it runs for a few seconds and then you can hear it slow down a bit. The computer's ram is 192 MB. It is Windows XP-Home Edition, Service Pack 1 installed, hp pavillion ze4400, 1.05 GHz. Let me know if you need more info on my computer. Down below is a combo fix and a hijackthis log. Thanks again for your help.

Hi,

I deleted the HP Config and HP WirelessMgr thinking they contained the virus.

No, because they were services and in this case services won't get infected.

The computer's ram is 192 MB.

Well, that explains it all. This is way toooo low. For XP ONLY you need at least 256MB of ram. 512MB and up would be ideal if you have a lot of other programs installed.

You really need to add more ram though, because there's nothing else we can do to speed things up.
Not sure if you have read my "Slow Computer Page", but that's what it says in one of my first lines - the amount of ram. And looking at your computer specs, this sounds like this is an old computer as well. Old computers run slower, this is normal.

Check and fix next entries in HijackThis:

next are orphaned entries:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TV Now] C:\Program Files\HPQ\Notebook Utilities\TvNow.exe /RK
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Display Settings] C:\Program Files\HPQ\Notebook Utilities\hptasks.exe /s

Next is a resource hog:

O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE

The rest of your log still looks OK, so the infection is gone - I am sure of that :)

Uninstall your Combofix again as well. :)

Hi,

Thank you very much for helping clear my computer of these nasty bugs. I uninstalled Combofix and I ran Antivir another time and it came back with no detections of viruses! Yeah we are in the clear:)

A great big thanks to you! I have one last question. Do I need to restore the HPConfig and the HPWirelessMgr that deleted? If so, how do I do this?

Thanks,
Magda

Hi,

What you deleted was a part of Notebook Utilities: http://h10025.www1.h...item=ob-22772-1
But if you don't really use it, then there's no need to reinstall it again. After all, in your case since you only have 192 MB of ram, every extra program running in the background is already one program too much, because your memory can't deal with it.
Most important thing is still - make sure your Antivirus is always active - no matter how much ram you have.
