Nope. It's much faster now. Still a bit sluggish, but again, this computer is very old.

It's especially efficient when I use firefox over explorer.

Run OTL again (Quickscan) and post the log. Let me see how it looks now.

If you look at your desktop there should be an Internet Explorer icon somewhere. If you right click on it and select Start without Add-ons, does it work better?

then run OTL and Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste (ctrl +v) the text. Verify that you got it all and Then click the Run Fix button at the top
Let the program run unhindered, OTL will reboot the PC when it is done. Save the log and copy and paste it to a reply.

Go into IE, Tools, Internet Options change the Home Page to Use Blank. OK. Close IE. Start IE. Is it faster now?

Get Simple Adblock and install it: Adhttp://simple-adblock.com/

This should make IE a bit faster when it hits a page with a lot of ads.

Open Firefox. (Count how long it takes to open. One thousand one, one thousand two...) Go to www.google.com
Then Firefox, (or tools if you have the older version) Options, tell it to Use Current for the homepage. OK.
Now go to https://addons.mozil...n/adblock-plus/ and get the ad-block plus ad-on for firefox.

Then download and run Speedy Fox.
http://www.crystalidea.com/speedyfox . (Close Firefox.) Press the Speed up my Firefox button. Exit.

Open Firefox. Count how long it takes to open now.

Are things any faster now?

Let's do one final check and then I think we are done.

Start, Run, eventvwr.msc, OK to bring up the Event Viewer. Right click on System and Clear All Events, No (we don't want to save the old log), OK. Repeat for Application. Reboot.


1. Please download the Event Viewer Tool by Vino Rosso
http://images.malwar...om/vino/VEW.exe
and save it to your Desktop:
2. Double-click VEW.exe
3. Under 'Select log to query', select:

* System
4. Under 'Select type to list', select:
* Error
* Warning


Then use the 'Number of events' as follows:


1. Click the radio button for 'Number of events'
Type 20 in the 1 to 20 box
Then click the Run button.
Notepad will open with the output log.


Please post the Output log in your next reply then repeat but select Application.

We need to clean up System Restore. Follow Jim's procedure here:
http://aumha.net/vie...581099691bf108f


You can uninstall or delete any tools we had you download and their logs.
To uninstall combofix, copy the next line:

"%userprofile%\Desktop\combofix.exe" /Uninstall

Start, Run, cmd, OK then right click, Paste, then hit Enter.

OTL has a cleanup tab so if you run it again and select cleanup it will remove itself and its backup files.

To hide hidden files again:

XP

# Close all programs so that you are at your desktop.
# Double-click on the My Computer icon.
# Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
# After the new window appears select the View tab.
# Uncheck the checkbox labeled Display the contents of system folders.
# Under the Hidden files and folders section select the 'Hide protected operating system files (recommended)' option.
# Check the checkbox labeled Hide protected operating system files.
# Press the Apply button and then the OK button and shutdown My Computer.


Also make sure you have the latest versions of any adobe.com products you use like Shockwave, Flash, Reader or Acrobat.

Whether you use adobe reader, acrobat or fox-it to read pdf files you need to disable Javascript in the program. There is an exploit out there now that can use it to get on your PC. For Adobe Reader: Start, All Programs, Adobe Reader, Edit, Preferences, Click on Javascript in the left column and uncheck Enable Acrobat Javascript. OK Close program. It's the same for Foxit reader except you uncheck Enable Javascript Actions.

To help keep your programs up-to-date you can download and run the UpdateChecker:
http://www.filehippo.../updatechecker/

If you use Firefox then get the AdBlock Plus Add-on. WOT (Web of Trust) is another you might want to try.
The equivalent to AdBlock Plus for IE is called Simple Adblock and you should install it too: Adhttp://simple-adblock.com/

If Firefox is slow loading make sure it only has the current Java add-on. Then download and run Speedy Fox.
http://www.crystalidea.com/speedyfox . It seems to work best if you reboot right after running it. You can run it any time that Firefox seems slow.

Be warned: If you use Limewire, utorrent or any of the other P2P programs you will almost certain be coming back to the Malware Removal forum. If you must use P2P then submit any files you get to http://virustotal.com before you open them.

If you have a router, log on to it today and change the default password! If using a Wireless router you really should be using encryption on the link. Use the strongest (newest) encryption method that your router and PC wireless adapter support especially if you own a business. See http://www.king5.com...-120637284.html and http://www.seattlepi...ted-1344185.php for why encryption is important. If you don't know how, visit the router maker's website. They all have detailed step by step instructions or a wizard you can download.
