Hello Yafu,

We meet again.

I have studied your HJT log carefully and thee is no evidence of malware.

What exactly does Spybot and adaware scans show to be on your system, please provide a copy of the scan logs

i do routine checks with spybot s&d and lavasoft adaware... every week at least once... but lately the appearance of malware on these checks happens more often to the point of showing up upon startup immediately following a removal using these two programs...

adaware does not seem to find them whereas spybot does... while all the spyware or malware seems to be properly "fixed" by s&d, they show up again soon after, every time...

also, i run my pc on a network at home... everytime i go online the whole network slows down considerably...

here's the latest scan from spybot

(as always, thank you very much)

Hi Yafu, what you see in the log are merely cookies frm the sites you visit, you can change the way cookies are accepted, but you will find that you will get warnings for any sites you visit that require cookies to be accepted.

There is no real danger in cookies, and you can delete them with spybot as regulally as you wish.

With regards the network slowing down, this will happen as you are only permitted so much bandwidth a determined by your isp and connection speed. the more pc's utilising the bandwidth the slower the network.. do you have a firewall?

Hi yafu, i see you have SP2 so you will have microsoft firewall, if it is not turned on you will have a warning icon near your clock.

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 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.
