My original problem was that I was getting a bunch of pop ups. I used system restore but this didn't fix the problem. I followed the instructions and did scans with Ad-aware SE, CWShredder, Spybot S&D, Microsoft Antispyware, Ewido, Trend Housecall and Symmantec Antivirus. I also ran windows update.

After removing a whole load of crap from my system the pop-ups finally stopped coming up. However, I still have a problem. After my computer has been on for about 20 mins or so my ip blocker (protowall) goes crazy blocking the same ip over and over again. Then my computer goes really slow and starts to overheat. When I look in Task Manager there is a listing (sometimes multiple) for 'iexplore.exe' even though I don't have any internet explorer windows open.

(Another thing i noticed was an entry for 'system32.exe' under the startup tab in MSconfig. This seems to have dissapeared for now.)

I am really at a loss, I have no idea how to fix this problem. :tazz:

Any help would be greatly appreciated. ;)

Here is my HijackThis log (I also have the Ewido log if required):

Can you surf to:

I tried to follow your instructions but the file:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\SndMon32.exe

was not there. I have no idea why it is missing.

Anyway, I checked the items you listed and here is my new log:

Also, my original problem seems to have gone away. However my computer does seriously slow down after just a short time from startup. I have also noticed listings in the task list that seem strange, such as jtof9ekn.exe.

Ben.

In HijackThis click Config > Misc Tools > delete a file on reboot

Choose this file:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\jtof9ekn.exe

Let the computer reboot when prompted.

Check the following items in HijackThis.
Close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Media Gateway] C:\Program Files\Media Gateway\MediaGateway.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [jtof9ekn] C:\WINDOWS\system32\jtof9ekn.exe


Reboot into safe mode and delete:
C:\Program Files\Media Gateway <= entire folder

You're welcome. :tazz:

If you want to post a new HijackThis log. I'll gladly have a look to see if everything is really gone.
