To make sure it is perfectly clean let us have the final check.
  • Close all windows, open HijackThis then SCAN.
  • Post a NEW HijackThis Log.
  • Please tell me how your system is working now.

The system appears to be working just fine. I have no problems now but is there anything I should do to check?
The floppy drive has stopped doing tricks.
The only thing is that when I open Microsoft outlook it gives me a message that an error has occured in the script on this page and asks me whether I want to continue running script on this page. Choosing yes or no makes no difference and it works fine both ways.

Very good koniord! :tazz: Great job!

Congratulations! ;) your system is CLEAN!

WinXP Reset & All-Clean1

We have a couple of last steps to perform and then you're all set.

First, let's reset your hidden/system files and folders. System files are hidden for a reason and we don't want to have them openly available and susceptible to accidental deletion.* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading UNSELECT Show hidden files and folders.
* CHECK the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.
Next, let's clean your restore points and set a new one:

Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs from changing those files. This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected)1. Turn off System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
2. Restart your computer.

3. Turn ON System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
[/list]System Restore will now be active again.

Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programs:
  • SpywareBlaster to help prevent spyware from installing in the first place.
  • SpywareGuard to catch and block spyware before it can execute.
  • IESpy-Ad to block access to malicious websites so you cannot be redirected to them from an infected site or email.
You should also have a good firewall. Here are 3 free ones available for personal use:and a good antivirus (these are also free for personal use):It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

To keep your operating system up to date visitmonthly. And to keep your system clean run these free malware scannersweekly, and be aware of what emails you open and websites you visit.

To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read this article by Tony Klein: So how did I get infected in the first place?

:help: yeah its a bit tiring but ya know we love the job so I guess we dont care about the time ;) :tazz:

You have the options to keep or uninstall all the trial versions of the programs. Just one tip, when it comes to antivirus and protection programs just keep at least one since others conflict with each others. Lets say Symantec AV conflicts with McAfee so you must choose only one of them. ;)

The best protection combination is the updated spyware guard, spyware blaster, IE Spyad, a firewall, weekly scan with spybot & ad-aware. Most of all windows update. You should also have weekly online virus scan with panda, trend micro, bitdefender. :help:

Hi,

Thanks,

What concerns me is that there are 33 processes open.
They were fewer before and the only thing I have installed is 1 program(e-donkey).
I will disable opening this program at startup but the rest seem a lot.

Here's the HijackThis log (I turned off AVG, SpywareGuard and Kerio firewall before scanning)

NOTE: E-donkey is an infected P2P Networking : http://www.spywareinfo.com/articles/p2p/


Open up your Ad-Aware 1.06r then have all the updates downloaded.

Reboot in SAFE MODE. (How to boot in Safe Mode...)
  • Uninstallation
    We need to uninstall the following programs:

  • Please locate if they exist
    • e-donkey 2000

  • Confirm with OK
Please run the Ad-Aware, then do a full system scan.

Please close all remaining windows, disconnect from the internet, open HijackThis then click SCAN. Please put a check on the following items listed below:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [eDonkey2000] "C:\Program Files\eDonkey2000\eDonkey2000.exe" -t

Make sure to double check the items you have selected, then click Fix Checked.

Through Windows Explorer, delete the following folder(s) or files(s) if they exist (in bold):
  • C:\Program Files\eDonkey2000
Finally, Empty Recycle Bin

Reboot back into Windows have an online scan with Panda ActiveScan, then do a full system scan. Make sure the autoclean box is checked!

That depends upon you if you want to keep that e-donkey as long as you have read the notes on infected P2P networking then you have the responsibility to keep it or remove it.

Good luck to you! :tazz:
