McAfee said that my computer was in lockdown mode disabling all network traffic

Duh didn't think of that :)

You can install the recovery console via combofix

Go to Microsoft's website => http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310994
Select the download that's appropriate for your Operating System.

SP3 users select the download for SP2

Download the file & save it as it's originally named, next to ComboFix.exe.

Now close all open windows and programs, then drag the setup package onto ComboFix.exe and drop it. Follow the prompts to start ComboFix and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Recovery Console. When complete, a log named CF_RC.txt will open. Please post the contents of that log.

How is your system now ?

Im a little confused as to what service pack to install, I never had any CD with this laptop, so i have no idea what Windows XP Media Center Edition would be, im guessing SP2, but im not entirely sure, since it only offers Windows XP Home Edition and Windows XP Professional for SP2, I can't find Windows Media Center Edition on any of the Supported Operating Systems lists and I don't want to install the wrong Service Package.

Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)

Download the SP2 version as there is no real difference between media/home/professional

Once you have done that could you post a new Hijackthis log and let me know how your computer is running

Ok, I installed the recovery console, I downloaded the SP2 and dragged it onto Combo-Fix.exe as you said, and followed the prompts, it installed successfully and I let Combo-Fix sweep my system again, I don't believe it found anything this time around, thank goodness, although at the end of it it said cannot find file of some sort or something, then ended and produced a log report as usual. I forgot to turn off my Spysweeper and Anti-Spyware programs while Combo-Fix was running, maybe that is why it could'nt find something, not that it really matters much, because my computer is fine and is working great, I just don't want something to have gone wrong during Combo-Fix because my Anti-Spyware programs were on by mistake and not know about it, thats all. Otherwise my computer seems to be in fine working order and running great, exept for its dieing hard drive :). Does anyone on this site help with hard drive replacements? :)

Thanks for all of your help.

Clean as a baby's bum :) So lets secure your system, remove my tools and send you on your way

Does anyone on this site help with hard drive replacements?

It just so happens that I know of a place where you can get assistance Just drop a new topic here http://www.geekstogo...pherals-f9.html and someone will be along to assist

Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malicious sites can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 7 and save it to your desktop.
  • Scroll down to where it says "Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 7...allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Read the License Agreement and then check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement". The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation and save the file to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove Programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check (highlight) any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6u7-windows-i586-p.exe to install the newest version.

Now the best part of the day ----- Your log now appears clean :)

Double click OTScanIt once again and you should see a CleanUp! button, press that button, you may get prompted by your firewall that OTScanIt wants to contact the internet, allow this, a cleanup.txt will be downloaded, a message dialog will ask you if you want to proceed with the cleanup process, click Yes. This will delete all the tools you have downloaded plus itself.

Now to get you off to a good start we will re-set your restore points so that all the bad stuff is gone for good. Then if you need to restore at some stage you will be clean. There are several ways to reset your your restore point but this is my method:

1. Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > System Restore.
2. On the dialogue box that appears select Create a Restore Point
3. Click NEXT
4. Enter a name e.g. Clean
5. Click CREATE

You now have a clean restore point, to get rid of the bad ones:

1. Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > Disk Cleanup.
2. In the Drop down box that appears select your main drive e.g. C
3. Click OK
4. The System will do some calculation and the display a dialogue box with TABS
5. Select the More Options Tab.
6. At the bottom will be a system restore box with a CLEANUP button click this
7. Accept the Warning and select OK again, the program will close and you are done

Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free program: It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

Keep safe :)

Thanks for all that you have done and for directing me to the place where I can get help with my Hard Drive, I have a few last minute questions:

1. My iPod is now saying that my iPod is new again, is this normal?

2. When OTScanIt deleted itself, it said could not delete it's self, then restarted, then it was gone, and should I delete MBAM, Hijackthis, Combo-Fix and the new temporary Anti-Spyware programs that I got to fight the virus I had, or just leave them?

3. Since I already have Spysweeper and McAfee's Personal Firewall protecting me along with it's outdated Virus Scan, should I install SpywareBlaster and SuperAntispyware? They will not cause any interference will they? Also should I download them both or just one?

4. I have heard that ZoneAlarm was good, is it as good as SpywareBlaster or SuperAntispyware? I know I need an up to date Virus Protection.

Thanks Again

Phew what a lot of questions :) OK lets take them in order

1. My iPod is now saying that my iPod is new again, is this normal?

I am afraid I do not know as I do not have an Ipod

2. When OTScanIt deleted itself, it said could not delete it's self, then restarted, then it was gone, and should I delete MBAM, Hijackthis, Combo-Fix and the new temporary Anti-Spyware programs that I got to fight the virus I had, or just leave them?

MBAM can be removed via Control panel and I would recommend keeping Hijackthis. Combofix should have been deleted by OTScanit, you may delete it by the following procedure
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.

3. Since I already have Spysweeper and McAfee's Personal Firewall protecting me along with it's outdated Virus Scan, should I install SpywareBlaster and SuperAntispyware? They will not cause any interference will they? Also should I download them both or just one?

Spywareblaster is a passive protection programme different to the rest, so I would put that down as a yes. SAS is an additional on demand scan that you may want to use sometimes, the option for that is your choice..

4. I have heard that ZoneAlarm was good, is it as good as SpywareBlaster or SuperAntispyware? I know I need an up to date Virus Protection.

ZoneAlarm is a good firewall but if you want a free antivirus I would recommend either Avast or Avira

If you decide to go for the ZoneAlarm Avast Combo then you will need to totally uninstall McAfee using their removal tool

Thanks alot for answering my questions, I got both Spywareblaster and SAS, but as I was trying to get Avast, which I think will be better for my computer the download died twice and got stuck at 39%, is it a broken download? If so i'll just go for Avira.

The link appears OK - what I will do is give you the direct link http://files.avast.c...ro/setupeng.exe Do you have a download manager ? That stops those sort of problems. The one I use is leechget, Free and clean :) http://www.leechget.net/en/
