The new hijack log is below.

SUPERAntiSpyware is still active. Can it co-exist with the firewall? The firewall blocks it from updating (again this may be a setting in COMODO).

I also noticed that the task manager, which is again available, is much different. I cannot view all processes, only end task (the open window), switch to (? window minimizes), or new task (browse). My prior task manager showed everything that was running.

Again thanks for everything.

Can you get a couple of screenshots of your Task Manager?
I haven't struck this as an issue before.

All the best,

Hi coachv,

The answer is dead simple, when you know how.
Just double click on the grey border to the Task Manager window.
That should return the other tabs & controls.

SUPERAntiSpyware will co exist with Comodo, but it sounds like you may have a bad setting in the firewall.
Please check out the "Network Security Policy" section of the Manual/Help File.

Apart form that lot:

Congratulations, your new log looks clear, so we can now deal with some final clean up jobs.

Clean out cookies, temp files etc:
Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune.
This program is for XP and Windows 2000 only
  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Under Main choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.

    If you use Firefox browser
    • Click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
    • Click the Empty Selected button.

      NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
    If you use Opera browser
    • Click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
    • Click the Empty Selected button.

      NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
For Technical Support, double-click the e-mail address located at the bottom of each menu.


Time for some housekeeping:
  • Follow these steps to uninstall Combofix and tools used in the removal of malware
    • Click START then RUN
    • Now type Combofix /u in the runbox and click OK. Note the space between the X and the U, it needs to be there.
      Posted Image


    To Clear Restore points, please do the following:
    • Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel.
    • Double-click the System icon.
      NOTE: If the System icon is not visible, click "View all Control Panel options" to display it.
  • Click the System Restore tab.
  • Put a check by Disable System Restore.
  • Click Apply, OK, OK. Click Yes when you are prompted to restart Windows.
After reboot, you must turn System Restore back on:
  • Go back to the Troubleshooting tab.
  • UNcheck Disable System Restore.
  • Click Apply, OK, OK. Click Yes when you are prompted to restart Windows.

Lastly, some extra or better security for your PC:

The programs recommended below are freeware alternatives to some of your security software & might reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future:-

Spyware Prevention:
Spyware Blaster by JavaCool Software, prevents spyware installing and consumes no system resources.
IE/SpyAd, stops suspect sites loading ActiveX, popups etc onto your PC. An excellent tutorial is Here

Spyware Detection:
AVG Anti-Spyware is my favourite here.

Anti-Virus:
The first line of defence, especially since some will now detect trojans as well.
Avira's Antivir PersonalEdition Classic and Grisoft's Avast! Free Edition are among the best freebies.
*Please note* You should never install more than one anti-virus program on a PC, as it will cause conflicts.

Firewall:
A Firewall is an essential tool in the security of any PC connected to the Internet.
Sunbelt Personal Firewall and Comodo are both excellent freeware.

Alternate Browsers:
Thankfully, there are now some excellent alternatives to MS Internet Explorer. They offer better security, more stability, and better speed.
A couple of good examples are: Firefox and Opera

Other Updates:
Vital security patches and updates are available for Microsoft Windows and Internet Explorer at the Windows Update Site
It is equally important to update the other security software you use, on a regular basis.

Further reading about these issues is available in a very good article: How did I get infected in the first place ? (by Tony Klein and dvk01)

All the best & safe surfing in the future,

sage5

Thank you so much for your patience and assistance! Everything seems to be working fine, I laughed at the fix for the Task Manager.

Thanks again, I really appreciate all of the time spent helping me.

I have one additional question. Why was I asked to delete poker sites from my machine, is there something wrong with them that I should not download? I should have asked earlier, but did not think of it. I attempted to download and their page will not load, "cannot display the webpage".

Again, just wondering if I should not download from the site or if one of my new settings (software) may be blocking it.

Thanks again!!

When I am looking for issues in a log like yours I will delete any O9 & O16 HijackThis entries that do not get a good report in Castlecops database,
better to be safe than sorry.
Also there is some evidence to suggest that some Poker sites contain "doubtful" code, which could result in a "drive-by" type infection.
I won't touch them with the proverbial 40ft pole, but it is your call.
The current access issues you are having are probably due to your Hosts file blocking these sites:
If you want to return to those sites try the following:

Download the HostsXpert 3.7 - Hosts File Manager.
  • Unzip HostsXpert 3.7 - Hosts File Manager to a convenient folder such as C:\HostsXpert
  • Click HostsXpert.exe to Run HostsXpert 3.7 - Hosts File Manager from its new home
  • Click "Make Hosts Writable?" in the upper right corner (If available).
  • Click Restore Microsoft's Hosts file and then click OK.
  • Click the X to exit the program.
  • Note: If you were using a custom Hosts file, like IE/SpyAd you will need to replace any of those entries yourself.
