My partner's computer seems to take sometime to switch users, and occasionally there seem to be bursts of hard disk activity for no apparent reason. It's not a big issue, but wonder if the following HJT log - immediately after a reboot - reveals anything.

I have quarantied all items showing up using the latest downloads of Ad-aware and Spybot.

Operating System is XP Home Edition.

The disk is 40 Gb with about 22 Gb free space. It does not particularly fragmented.

Could a reason be that the indexing service for the disk is switched on?

Reboot in safe mode (by tapping F8 at startup and select safe mode from the menu).
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):
C:\WINDOWS\system\vgadoc.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\MSA64CHK.dll
C:\WINDOWS\System32\downloadMP3 <- this folder

Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log, and let us know how your system's working. <_<

Thanks as ever for the fast response <_<

First impression was that start up was much quicker.

The downloadmp3 folder is in local settings/sandra/applications data - I assume it's Ok to to delete this, and any other references to downloadmp3 (there are shortcuts, a .cab file anbd a .per file)

here's the latest HT log - i've highlighted one item you didn't mention, but seems a possible HT fix.

Thanks again :D

Yes, it's safe to delete the file in local settings/sandra/applications data, and any other references to downloadmp3.

Please fix this entry w/Hijack This:

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN <_<

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use).

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.
Link to SpywareBlaster: http://www.geekstogo...tion=show&id=12

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend Firefox.
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder if everything is working okay.

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. :D

Unfortunately I forgot to implement SpyBlaster, and it looks as though there are more suspect items. <_<

Grateful if you'd take a further look, and let me know of problems to be fixed.

Thanks.

Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [iqozceskc] C:\WINDOWS\System32\fraihf.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WindUpdates] C:\Program Files\WindUpdates\WinUpdt.exe
O2 - BHO: MxTargetObj Class - {0000607D-D204-42C7-8E46-216055BF9918} - C:\WINDOWS\mxTarget.dll
O4 - Global Startup: Search.vbs

Reboot in safe mode (by tapping F8 at startup and select safe mode from the menu).
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):

C:\Program Files\WindUpdates<---folder
C:\WINDOWS\System32\fraihf.exe

Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log, and let us know how your system's working. <_<

Thanks for your help. This seems to have cured one problem I had noticed where certain websites start a second IE window.

Plese fix this entry:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WindUpdates] C:\Program Files\WindUpdates\WinUpdt.exe

Reboot in safe mode (by tapping F8 at startup and select safe mode from the menu).
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):

C:\Program Files\WindUpdates<---folder

Also what websites are creating new windows?

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN <_<

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use).

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend Firefox.
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder if everything is working okay.

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. :D
