Recently I caught a few major viruses/spywares called IEDefender, XPAntivirus, and SafeStrip which I followed all the directs from this fourm to get rid of the problem. I think those major viruses have been taken care of, but recently my computer and internet has been running really slow even for cable and I frequently get a few popup threat messages a day from my Symantec AntiVirus program telling me I have a "Trojan Horse" threat. I have about 10-20 of these logged in the threat history and some of the actions taken saids "left along" and "quarantined". The description I get is "C:\Documents and Settings\Patty Dong\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\[random letters]\......htm" and when I go to this folder I get up to "C:\Documents and Settings\Patty Dong\Local Settings\" and in that folder I do not see the "Temporary Internet Files" folder. What I do then is manually type the link in but nothing is in the "content.IE5" folder so I just delete everything in the Temporary Internt files folder, but after not even a few seconds new files appear which I delete again. Does Content.IE5 mean the internet explorer 5? The IE I use is the new IE version 7 so I am a little confused. I decided there must be something wrong so I ran everything I got to see if I can remove the problem myself. I ran full system scans on all of the following programs I have to prevent viruses and spywares such as Symantec Antivirus, SuperAntiSpyware Version 4.21, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Symantec Trojan-Vudo Removal Tool 1.5.0.

I also keep the ATF_cleaner program handle and use it to delete everything in the Temporary Internet Files folder every hr, but I sometimes see that it doesn't delete everything like it saids it does. I also have the FixIEDef tool I use once a day. Below is the HiJackThis log I ran. Thank You!

P.S. Also I want to know why the Temporary Internet Files folder does not show up in the local settings. It use to be there and I don't know when it disappeared. Now I have to mannually type in the path to make sure there is no malicious file still lurking in that folder.

Hi,
Welcome to the site

I will be handling your log to help you get cleaned up. Please give me some time to look it over and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

I want you to show hidden files. There are instructions HERE to help you do this.
You should have Administrator rights to perform the fixes. Some of the instructions I give may need to be printed or saved for reference during the fix. Some of the fix will be done in Safe Mode so you will be unable to access this thread at that time.
Please dont use any of the tools without specific instructions. Some of them are dangerous (and could leave your computer in worse condition that it is when infected) if used incorrectly.
These instructions should be read first, then followed. If you do not understand something, don't be afraid to ask, or see if I'm on chat. :)

I also keep the ATF_cleaner program handle and use it to delete everything in the Temporary Internet Files folder every hr, but I sometimes see that it doesn't delete everything like it saids it does.


Run it a few times, or try it in Safe Mode.

P.S. Also I want to know why the Temporary Internet Files folder does not show up in the local settings. It use to be there and I don't know when it disappeared. Now I have to mannually type in the path to make sure there is no malicious file still lurking in that folder.


This is most likely because of "Hidden Files and Folders".


I'd say your computer is clean, but it does sound like some AV problems you are having.

Click Start, and then click Run. In the Open box, type cleanmgr, and then click OK.


Remove Unwanted Programs:

Click Start, and then click Control Panel. Open Add/Remove Programs.

The Add or Remove Programs dialog box is displayed.

In the Currently installed programs list, click the program that you want to remove, and then click Remove (or Change/Remove).
If you receive a prompt to confirm the removal of the program, click Yes.
Repeat these steps to remove other programs that you no longer use, and then click Close.
Click OK, click Yes to proceed with this action, and then click OK.

Tell me if you get any more programs.

Another thing, I keep getting this prompt from symantec anitvirus which I print screened and attached to this post. The link you see in the picture I believe is telling me the quarantined object is in the following path "C:\Documents and Settings\Patty Dong\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5" after deleting everything in that folder I still keep getting this message every day. What does it mean?

Thank You!

Did you show hidden files and folders as well as system files as described in my first post? You'll see more files in there.
I dont use Symantec products, but can you find me the location of the Quarentined files?

C:\DOCUME~1\PATTYD~1\LOCALS~1\TEMPOR~1\Content.IE5\5YC2NLJX\X7B_1_~1/HTM

I get that as the location of the quarentined file, thus when I go there I don't see anything even when I followed the rules listed in your first post. Thank You ^^

I need the location of where your Symantec Anti Virus is storing its quarentined files. That's probably where this file is.
There should be an option in the Anti Virus program that lets you set the location, or tells you where it is storing the quarentined files.
