Built a new box and loaded XP, did MS security updates, then started loading software including MS Office XP, Roxio EZCD creator, MSI LiveUpdate, McAfee Anti-virus, Zone Alarm, Adware, Spybot S+D. No email client has been set up and no attachments have been opened. I use a Linux box for all that. Zone Alarm informed me when I booted the machine into Windows that spoolsv.exe was trying to access the internet. I googled it and found that there is the possibility that it is a trojan. No printers have been installed on this machine to date and there aren't any files in the printer queue. I scanned with McAfee, housecall.trendmicro and kaspersky with no infected files found. I did a spybot S+D and adware finding 3 cookies. I downloaded and ran hijackthis and didn't see anything that alarmed me. I'll post the log file below. This machine will be a data server with confidential information. I sure don't want to have a backdoor or keylogger on the thing.
In the future, how do I prevent viri from infecting fress installs (I must admit I was hooked to the internet from the load up and only had a smoothwall firewall and XP's software firewall at that point) and is there other security that I'm not using. Thanks. Logfile as follows:
