Those 2 things that won't delete are fine! They won't cause any problems :tazz:

If you don't use WildTangent, I would suggest deleting this file:
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Wildtangent

Post one more HiJackThis log for me and let me know if you started having any problems with AIM again ;)

My comments are in red.

Run HiJackThis and place a check next to the following items and click FIX CHECKED:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [IPInSightMonitor 02] "C:\Program Files\Visual Networks\Visual IP InSight\SBC\IPMon32.exe"
*Not required. Related to "IPClient" below. Eats up a huge amount of resources.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime
*Tray icon for QuickTime. QuickTime is available via Start > All Programs

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" -osboot
*Update scheduler for RealPlayer, you can update RealPlayer by going into the program.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [IPInSightLAN 02] "C:\Program Files\Visual Networks\Visual IP InSight\SBC\IPClient.exe" -l
*IP Insight is a Quality of Service monitor and diagnostic tool for your ISP that isn't required because they don't use it! It just wastes resources.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [DXM6Patch_981116] C:\WINDOWS\p_981116.exe /Q:A
*Left over from the installation of the DirectX 6 upgrade. It was supposed to run once then go away, but it sticks around in some systems.

O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OSA.EXE
*Not required and a huge resource hog!


Reboot, post another HiJackThis log for me and let me know how it's running!

So sorry it took me so long to respond! I get my computer fixed and SBC decides to stop working. All better now!

Everything seems to be running much faster and you've cut my start up time in half. It's wonderful! Here's my new log:

It looks great! You're very welcome!

I recommend checking the http://www.microsoft.com website click on "Windows Update" on the left then click "Express Install" in order to download security updates. I recommend Service Pack 2 because it has great security features!

Congratulations your log is clean! Great job on the clean up :tazz:

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

Ewido Security Suite <= Protection against Trojans, Worms, Dialers, Hijackers, Spyware, and Keyloggers.

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.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well known ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your computer 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 definitely a must have. Two good free versions are Sygate and ZoneAlarm.
