CPU has been acting up, my HiJackThis log (Help needed) [CLOSED]

Hi again Geekstogo, :)


Ok here's the scoop. Alright my CPU was working just fine, that is until I installed Threat Fire and PC tools Firewall Plus. Ever since then my CPU has been acting up, and every time I would turn on my CPU, all my usual running programs wouldn't run. Like my two messengers I have installed. Yahoo messenger and MSN messenger wouldn't run at all. I would practically have to keep restarting my CPU and get lucky for them to run properly.

My theory is that I overloaded my CPU with too many running programs at once, and that was causing my messengers to get blocked off by the two following programs "Threat Fire and PC tools Firewall Plus". Of course I could be wrong. I don't really know enough about computers yet to say I'm sure about it, so it's only just a hunch.


So going with every thing I already said, I have currently uninstalled "Threat Fire and PC tools Firewall Plus" for the time being.


So here's my HiJackThis log, hope you guys can help. Thanks, and good luck on finding any malware if there is any.



Edited July 22nd 11:25 AM~ Well looks like my little hunch was correct after all. After I got rid of them two programs, my CPU has been working like a charm. But I would still like you guys to check my logs. Thanks. And by the way, I've updated my HiJackThis log if that helps any.

Hi wrecklesskane,

There is nothing really in your log however, I see you have BearShare Mediabar, it is an Internet Explorer extension that comes bundled with the BearShare and iMesh peer to peer file sharing programs. BearShare Mediabar will start when you launch Internet Explorer, and will display annoying popup and pop-under ads. So I recommend you remove it with Add/Remove Programs.

Please go to Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and remove the following (if present):

BearShare Mediabar

And because that comes bundled with BearShare witch I also see in your log you get my P2P speech..

P2P Warning!

Please note that as long as you are using any form of Peer-to-Peer networking and downloading files from non-documented sources, you can expect infestations of malware to occur. Once upon a time, P2P file sharing was fairly safe. That is no longer true. You may continue to use P2P sharing at your own risk; however, please keep in mind that this practice may be the source of your current problem/infection. I would strongly suggest you remove BearShare as this is one of the worst offenders. Removing can be done through Add/Remove Programs.

===============================================

Update Java


Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update.
Upgrading Java:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 7.
  • Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Select your Platform and check the box that says: "I agree to the Java SE Runtime Environment 6 License Agreement.".
  • Click on Continue.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation (jre-6u7-windows-i586-p.exe) and save it to your desktop. Do NOT use the Sun Download Manager..
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check 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 version.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on the download to install the newest version.
===============================================


The below three entries are desktop components withch in this case appear to be pictures of some sort. Did you set them ?

O24 - Desktop Component 0: (no name) - file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Administrator/My%20Documents/My%20Pictures/Goku's%20SSJ3%20Dominating%20Power.gif
O24 - Desktop Component 1: (no name) - file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Administrator/My%20Documents/My%20Pictures/Gogeta%20and%20Gotenks.jpg
O24 - Desktop Component 2: (no name) - C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\My Pictures\Alex, Jeff, Anthony, and da illest ni99a of all them Lance.jpg

===============================================

Please let me know if you have removed the above and if you set the desktop components :)

Ok I've successfully updated my Java. But I couldn't find BearShare Mediabar any where to remove on Add/Remove Programs. But I did find something called MediaBar 2.0. And was wondering if that was still the same BearShear Mediabar you were talking about?


And about the pictures, what was it exactly you wanted me to do with them?
