Hi again Logan :tazz:

Ok lets address those two areas of concern first.

This file.

O1 - Hosts: 64.91.255.87 www.dcsresearch.com is associated with TDS trojan hunter, it's not a baddie. If you no longer use TDS let me know and i can remove that for you.

The second one is associated with quicktime a viewer, music player that sort of thing. To get rid of that just remove your quicktime from add/remove programs and reinstall it, that should help clear that screen.

Now back to the log.

Something i seem to have overlooked, do you run two antiviruses? I see AVG and McAfee in your log.

Anti-Virus programs take up an enormous amount of your computer's resources when they are actively scanning your computer. Having two anti-virus programs running at the same time can cause your computer to run very slow, become unstable and even, in rare cases, crash.

If you choose to install more than one Anti-Virus program on your computer, then only one of them should be active in memory at a time.

There are basically two types of these programs:
On-Access and On-Demand

On-Access Scanners
As the name implies, are scanners that run in the background all the time the PC is turned on and running. The main function of an On-Access scanner is to monitor activity on your machine.

On-Demand Scanners
As the name implies, are scanners that only run when you ask them to.
Such as:
Online Scans and scanners that run on your machine but are not actively scanning your machine.

Thanks to rstones12 for that canned

I want you to try and end a process for me if you can.

Click on Start, then on Run and type this in the box :

services.msc

and hit "Enter". Scroll down the list until you find this Service :

NET Framework Service

When you find it, double-click on it. In the next window that opens, click the Stop button, then change the Startup Type to Disabled. Now hit Apply and then Ok and close any open windows.

I also want you to try this tool out for me.

New Net Removal Tool

So to sum all this up, if you have 2 av's going, make sure to disable one of them, run that first instruction i gave you and then run the new net uninstaller.

After that please repost your log. ;)

Ok then Logan this comes next.

Click on Start, then on Run and type this in the box :

services.msc

and hit "Enter". Scroll down the list until you find these Services :

McAfee.com McShield
McAfee SecurityCenter Update Manager
McAfee.com VirusScan Online Realtime Engine


When you find them, double-click on each one. In the next window that opens, click the Stop button, then change the Startup Type to Disabled. Now hit Apply and then Ok and close any open windows.

After that please reboot and send me a new hijack log :tazz:

Hmm, it doesn't seem like you'll be able to get to my log tonight.

May I ask a HUGE favor of you? As you might have noticed, I have decided to try to start helping this site out and am currently enrolled Geek U.

I'm having trouble finding the baddies in HJT logs, as of right now I'm going through each individual entry and marking out the ones I knows as "clean," and then googling the rest. This takes up quite a bit of time, is there a faster way of doing it?

Also, I was wondering if you would mind telling me what you did before you posted every post, like how you decided what to tell me to do, how you decided what I should install, etc.

Thanks :tazz:

p.s. It's no problem at all if you don't have time to do all that.
p.s.s Looking over my log it looks clean, but this is my first attempt at a log...

Sorry Logan I couldn't get here any earlier this evening, had guests come in form out of town, that i have'nt seen in some time. I also have a real job so i just do this in my spare time when i have some.

So you have decide to enroll in Geek U? good job and maybe someday i will see you posting on the board as a trusted helper.

As far as answering them questions goes, you will be taught all that in Geek U, its a journey by itself but you will be taught by some of the best in the business :tazz: I would rather you learn in a structured environment where you can ask the teachers those type of questions as that's why they are there to answer all the questions you may have.

Now onto that log.

You are clean Congrats!!!!

Since your issues have been addressed and you are ready to travel the net again, I will just give you a few ideas on how to stay safe out there. Best of all these programs are all readily available on the net for free ;)

To reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster and SpyWareGuard.

SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard are by JavaCool and both are free programs. SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed and consumes no system resources. SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.

More info and download is available at:

Spyware Blaster Spyware Guard

Might I suggest the following Free Spyware programs for added security, you can download them at the following links. These programs work great for detection:

Ad-aware SE--Adaware Tutorial

Spybot S&D--Spybot Tutorial

Antiviruses play an important role in keeping your computer safe and worry free while using the net. *NOTE* Only one antivirus must be allowed to run on your computer, as having two or more running can and will cause conflicts.

AVG Avast

Firewalls are also a must in any good prevention :

Zone Alarm Sygate Kerio

There are different browsers available on the net, other than Internet Explorer, we believe!! these are better for security purposes :

Firefox Opera

You must stay on top of your updates at all times, for the above mentioned applications.

It is vitaly important to stay on top of your critical updates provided by microsoft.

This can be accessed by going to Windows Updates and following the prompts.

To add to the performance of your computer, i suggest a weekly maintenance program. Run this tool. Ccleaner

Lastly a second opinion on the Antivirus that you have chosen. I suggest running these online virus scans periodically, just to make sure that the av is doing a proper job, of keeping you safe :

Rav Online Scan Housecall Online Scan Panda Activescan

Housecall Java Online Scan<---For those who use Firefox
