I am trying to help someone fix this PC. He told me that it is "running slow". I have run Spybot S&D, and found a few spyware entries, but I want to see if I missed anything. This user also has Norton 2006 installed (yeah, I know....) as well as Webroot antivirus and desktop firewall. So, those may be slowing things down, but it was faster before, even with those installed. Anyway, if soomeone can please look over this log file and see if anything looks suspect. Also, there is an installation of Norton that tries to run on every startup, and I can't seem to stop that form happening, so any help on disabling that would be appreciated.

Hi there and sorry for the delay. I can see nothing apparent so I will need a deeper look

Download OTScanit to your Desktop and double-click on it to extract the files. It will create a folder named OTScanIt on your desktop.
  • Close ALL OTHER PROGRAMS.
  • Open the OTScanit folder and double-click on OTScanit.exe to start the program.
  • Check the box that says Scan All User Accounts
  • Check the Radio buttons for Files/Folders Created Within 90 Days and Files/Folders Modified Within 90 Days
  • Under Additional Scans check the following:
    • Reg - BotCheck
    • File - Additional Folder Scans
    • File - Purity Scan
  • Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
  • Let it run unhindered until it finishes.
  • When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
  • Click the Format menu and make sure that Wordwrap is not checked. If it is then click on it to uncheck it.
Please attach the log in your next post.

To attach a file, do the following:
  • Click Add Reply
  • Under the reply panel is the Attachments Panel
  • Browse for the attachment file you want to upload, then click the green Upload button
  • Once it has uploaded, click the Manage Current Attachments drop down box
  • Click on Posted Image to insert the attachment into your post

Ok, thanks for the reply. I was out of town, so I just got back to check this thread. Log file was run as described and here is the result. Let me know if anything looks suspect, thanks.

Based on that last report Symantec/Norton is not running - has it been removed as there is now no evidence of an antivirus

Start OTScanit. Copy/Paste the information in the quotebox below into the pane where it says "Paste fix here" and then click the Run Fix button.

[Unregister Dlls]
[Win32 Services - Non-Microsoft Only]
YY -> (NNServ) NNServ [Win32_Own | Auto | Stopped] -> %ProgramFiles%\NewDotNet\nnrun.exe C:\Program Files\NewDotNet\nncore.dll
[Registry - Non-Microsoft Only]
< Run [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\] > -> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
YN -> ~EmptyValue -> []
< Downloaded Program Files > -> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Code Store Database\Distribution Units\
YN -> {0246ECA8-996F-11D1-BE2F-00A0C9037DFE}[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE] -> http://www.anandabazar.com/wfplayer/tdserver.cab[TDServer Control]
[Empty Temp Folders]

The fix should only take a very short time. When the fix is completed a message box will popup telling you that it is finished. Click the Ok button and Notepad will open with a log of actions taken during the fix. Post that information back here along with a new Hijackthis log.

I will review the information when it comes back in.

Also let me know of any problems you encountered performing the steps above or any continuing problems you are still having with the computer.

And, I did remove Norton Antivirus, since I hate norton products, on the PC at least, but the user does have Webroot Antivirus installed. Let me know how things look. I also boosted the memory to 2 gigs, which is the max his laptop will take and thatseemed to help. Thanks again.

To gain a tad more speed the following are non-essential files for start up

You may use Hijackthis to remove them from startup as this will give you the option to restore if you find you need them at a later date

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

A good workman allways cleans up after himself so...Download and run this small programme and hit the cleanup button. It will remove all the programmes we have used plus itself

Now to get you off to a good start we will clean 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 restore points, but this is my method:
  • Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > System Restore.
  • On the dialogue box that appears select Create a Restore Point
  • Click NEXT
  • Enter a name e.g. Clean
  • Click CREATE
You now have a clean restore point, to get rid of the bad ones:
  • Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > Disk Cleanup.
  • In the Drop down box that appears select your main drive e.g. C
  • Click OK
  • The System will do some calculation and the display a dialogue box with TABS
  • Select the More Options Tab.
  • At the bottom will be a system restore box with a CLEANUP button click this
  • 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.

To keep your operating system up to date visit

To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read our little guide How did I get infected in the first place ?
Keep safe :)
