Hi,
I hope this is not confusing to any of you staff members who are trying to help, as I am new on how to post here at your forum. For specs, I use VirusScan that was given to me by my university as well as the provided firewall here on campus. I also scan daily with Spybot and Ad-Aware as well as the beta version of the MS AntiSpyware. I also update clear my cookies and delete files within IE properties everyday. I was using Limewire two nights ago and a bunch of adware and spyware launched including some hacker-type programs. After several scans by different anti-spyware programs (i.e. Ad-Aware etc.) I have come down to a couple (possibly more) worms that have been found- I think some backdoor (?) worms were found as well, that won't go away. Now everytime I restart my computer, Limewire launches by itself even when the "launch on system startup" option is OFF within the Limewire settings. When I uninstalled Limewire, something in the system still tried to bring up the Limewire program. I came to your forums today as a new member and went through your beginning steps of clean up and I wanted to add a HJT log to see if any of you could find anything else wrong with my computer and help me out. Also- when running Ewido, at the very end at 100%, the program found some infections in my archives and asked me to either delete, delete all, or ignore and when I started deleting some, the program crashed and asked me to do an error report and then closed on me. This happened twice, so I have no way of logging using Ewido. The following is my HJT log. Thank you for your time as I know you guys have lives other than sitting at a computer 24/7. Thank you!
I also have an Ad-Aware log if needed.

Thank you for a quick reply! I followed the steps in the Geeks2Go cleanup forum (the one we are told to do before posting a log) and I think it cleared up most of the mess. Limewire doesn't pop up after a system restart anymore so I think that took care of that particular worm. All I really need to know is if my log is clean. I ran Ewido and it found a TON of random games, DVD titles and all sorts of "illegal downloads" that I think people are downloading using my system...if that's even possible. Anyway, my log is as follows:

I'll look at your log later, but I wanted you to read the information about limewire and see if you having the program was worth the chance of having all the stuff that came along with it. :tazz:

I will certainly read up on Limewire and do a little more research as to what harmful stuff comes along with the program. I really had no idea of the harm p2p programs caused because I used WinMX before Limewire and never had a single "attack" like I did just recently. I did a little research on the program on the net but is there a forum in particular you would like me to view on G2G that discusses the harm in having Limewire?
Thanks!

Thank you for the link. I will be sure to rid my computer of Limewire immediately, since it seems to do more harm than good. I don't use it all that much anyway ;)

On a sidenote, my VirusScan just deleted about 700+ files that held the same names as the ones that Ewido had found but at the same time not able to clean. I can't tell if my computer still has these files or not anymore as they keep popping up in my scanning programs (i.e. VirusScan, AdAware and Ewido) :tazz:
Thanks again coachwife6.

Here is my log from Panda. I ran the activescan and it found three things:

Incident Status Location

Spyware:Spyware/Searchcentrix No disinfected Windows Registry
Adware:Adware/WinAD No disinfected C:\Program Files\Microsoft AntiSpyware\Quarantine\6E86CB78-EF06-4038-92B8-EB42F8\6FDC3183-33E7-4100-95D0-9259A5

I will now follow the last step in your request by rebooting and log back on with a new HJT log :tazz:

The above have been quarantined by Microsoft antispyware.

Here's some information on the files that were quarantined.

How is it running?

Thanks for the link. My laptop is running fine now and I plan on cleaning out unused files of mine, like music and Word docs. I ran Ad-Aware and it isn't finding anything tragic, just tracking cookies now, and the rest of the programs like MS AntiSpyware aren't finding anything so I'm assuming that's a good thing. :tazz:
I noticed that Texas is listed as your location. I'm from Houston and am currently enrolled at Southwestern University, which is in Georgetown- 25 minutes north of Austin. Pretty cool to see fellow Texans ;)

Is there anything else I need to do- logs, scans? Again, I thank you for your assistance.

You're doing a great job cleaning out your computer. Just make sure you don't become too squeaky clean. :help: I had a tendency to do that early on and would try to make it too tight.

If you have music, photos, CD programs on your computer, it will fill it up in a hurry.

Here's some info. on keeping it clean.

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN :tazz:

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use) Click Here.

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.

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 Posted Image.
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. ;)

Southwestern is a great school -- love the Austin area. Will vacation there next month. ;)

Awesome! I really do appreciate all the advice and time you took in helping me this past week. I know the tech staff here at SU wouldn't be too patient and probably would have kept my computer for weeks trying to clean it out.
Have a good rest of the summer and enjoy Austin!

I think college tech support goes by the credo - "you break it, you bought it." I could be wrong, though.

Enjoy your summer. :tazz:
