Hello :D

Please, Please :P

Since posting my hijack log yesterday, I have done a new virus scan and AVG found about 400 files were affected. :D

All but 4 were put in the vault. It said they could not be moved :D

I have tried various other online scans to get it fixed, but AVG resident Shield still pops up and says they are still on pc :D

Could some kind person please :o me by having a looksee at my latest HJT report i have just done. I did try to run adaware and spybot, but they both stopped responding before scan could be completed. I have also run CW Shredder.

These 4 entries seems to be where the virus/viruses are according to AVG resident Shield. I am too scared to delete these in case they are essential. :D

Hi angelbabe. You need to apply Windows Critical updates. Without critical updates, you're wide open to re-infection, and we're all just wasting our time.
Click here: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/
-or-
Order if you're on dial-up, order a free CD here:
http://www.microsoft...default810.mspx

After installing updates reboot and please send a complete log of hijackthis, so we can see if anything has been missed.
Thanks

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

That shouldn't be happening with Firefox. That's puzzling.
