Hi keepitsmart,

Try this

Click Start >Run > type cmd > OK

When the Command prompt comes up type or paste in this command and press enter:

sc GetKeyName "Trace network connections (ACCRA)"

It will give the a name for the service.

Agan in the Command Prompt type sc delete space and then copy the name you got from the 1st command. Press enter.
You should get a success message.
If not let me know

here's what it said...

[SC] GetServiceKeyName FAILED 1060:

The specified service does not exist as an installed service.

required Bufsize = 500

Any clue as what that means? :tazz:

Hi Keepitsmart.

From your log, I see nothing in the ways of trojans, nor any evil entities attempting to possess your computer, except for Windows but it's too late for that one. :tazz:

Congratulations your log now appears to be clean. ;)

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:

Detect and Remove Programs:
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.
Prevention Programs:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • IE/Spyad <= IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
Other necessary Programs:
  • AntiVirus Program<= An AntiVirus program is a must! Whether it is a free version like AVG or Anti-Vir, or a shareware version like Norton or Kapersky, this is a must have.
  • Firewall<= A firewall is definatley a must have. Two good free versions are Sygate and ZoneLabs.
  • More Secure Browser<= Internet Explorer is not the most secure and best browser. There are safer and better alternatives available. I recommend Firefox, however Opera and SlimBrowsers are good as well.
And also see TonyKlein's good advice
So how did I get infected in the first place? and AntiSpyware Net's spyware article: Spyware, Adware, Malware: What it is, how it got on my computer, how to get rid of it, and how to prevent it.

Once again thank you so much for all your time and help. You kick major toosh and you delivered on the goods. This is easily one of the best sites around. I'm downloading all the goodies you've recommended and hopefully i won't be back anytime soon!

thanks!

Thanks, Chief!

I tried WinMx and i couldn't get a DL on anything which sucked so I'll try one of the other recommended ones...I didn't see Soulseek on any of those lists, any word on that one?
