I have Nortan Antivirus, and I've run Spybot and Ad-aware several times. I had loads of malware and viruses on the computer. Apparently I wasn't prepared for getting broadband, as I've only had problems w/them since hooking up the DSL a week ago and the bad programs were all downloaded in the past week. My AV was completely compromised, et cetera, so I bought a new one and removed the old. Anyway, the above is my HJT log. I think I know what to fix after reading a the HJT tutorial and browsing other threads, but I'd prefer expert confirmation before I start deleting files. I have to kill a number of processes to be able to get online, including most of those scheduled to automatically run.

Basically, my understanding is that I need to fix every instance of these:

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Windows Service Pack2] svchhost.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Win32 USB2 Driver] svchosting.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [WindowsReg% update] uunchutcspw.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Microsoft Updiate] updater.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Win Updater] winupdater.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [SVX Control Service] svxhost.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Microsoft Update] connection.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [DLL Manager] dllmngr32.exe

Norton found a virus on connection.exe and deleted the file when I first installed it, so that's not around anymore. I haven't been able to find svchosting.exe on the computer, even with hidden system files revealed. I assume either Norton or spybot killed the actual program file, and all I have left is the entry in my registry.

Is there anything else I need to worry about or look for?

I really appreciate it. Thank you!

Hi mnemosyne, welcome to Geeks to Go! <_<

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 - HKCU\..\Run: [DLL Manager] dllmngr32.exe
O4 - Startup: PowerReg Scheduler V3.exe
O4 - Startup: PowerReg Scheduler.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:\WINDOWS\System32\svchosting.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\uunchutcspw.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\updater.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\winupdater.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\svxhost.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\connection.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\dllmngr32.exe

Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log in this same topic, and let us know how your system's working. :D

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
