I am helping my grandfather clean up his computer. His desktop was covered with spyware produced icons. I have run several programs to help clean up his computer. I would like someone to look at his hijack this log to see if I missed anything. Thanks for your help. It may take a day or two for me to respond to any posts because my grandfather lives about 25 minutes away from me. Thank you for your patience and help.

Can you run a new hijack this log again and post in this thread before you leave? If not, I'll work with this log if I don't hear back from you soon. :tazz:

Your grandfather is lucky to have you.

Please delete your temporary files. Double Click My Computer (WinXP: Navigate to Start --->My Computer)
You will see an icon representing your harddrive (most likely C: Drive) Right Click on the hard drive icon and click Properties at the
bottom of the fly out window. One the very first tab (General) you will see a button labeled "Disk Cleanup"...click that button.
Make sure the following are checked:
Downloaded Program Files
Temporary Internet Files and
Recycle Bin

Click OK and Disk Cleanup will delete those files for you.

Reboot and post a new log. You did a good job. :tazz:

I am not at his house today. I'm not sure when I will be back up to his house. Thank you for the reply. As soon as I can I will post back a new hijack this log.

I will also clean up everything you stated in your post then post a new log. Once again thanks for your help.

It looks good. I'll leave the topic open so you can post back if he's experiencing any other troubles.

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. ;)
