I'm fixing a friend's laptop. Problem was 'loadingwebsite' would pop-up every few minutes.
Laptop was in bad shape - did not have windows update/AV/firewall/ad-aware...
I've spent last few days getting Windows (98) up to date, have installed AVG anti-virus, Ad-aware, zone-alarm firewall.
Followed instructions for settings on ad-aware.
CWSshredder didn't find anything.
TDS3 didn't find anything.

I've used hi-jack this to try and clean up 'known' issues, but every time I boot regularly the same items show up (in safe mode, when I delete a line item, it stays deleted, but in regular mode the items re-appear).
Note that Cheyenne and ConfigSafe were uninstalled, but still show up in this log (and also keep reappearing...).

Any help would be appreciated.

Here is the hi-hack-this log:

Hello and welcome to Geeks To Go.

Lets start out with some general scans and see if we cant clean things up a little.

+++++ Step 1 +++++

Please run an on-line virus scan at Kaspersky OnLine Scan or if that doesnt work, you can use TrendMicro or BitDefender. (Please post the results of the scan(s) in your next reply)

+++++ Step 2 +++++

Update HiJackThis
  • Open HiJackThis
  • Click Open the Misc Tools Section
  • Click Check for update online
+++++ Step 3 +++++

After that, I will need to see two different logs from HiJackThis. The first is the normal log like you posted here. To get the other one, follow these directions.

Open HijackThis, click Config, click Misc Tools
Click "Open Uninstall Manager"
Click "Save List" (generates uninstall_list.txt)
Click Save, copy and paste the results in your next post.

Post back with those logs and we can continue from there.

If you have recieved help elsewhere or no longer need our assistance, please let us know.
