Hello!
I'm looking for guidance on what to fix on the following log...particularly the C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\XHOFZO.EXE line, which I have had no luck in finding anything about when I google it.
Thanks in advance!

Hi peterpeach, welcome to GeeksToGo

You couldn't find and information on that file because it has a random name. We will need some tools to clean up your computer.

Download, install, update, and configure Ad-aware SE:
  • Download and Install Ad-Aware SE, keeping the default options. However, some of the settings will need to be changed before your first scan.
  • Close ALL windows except Ad-Aware SE.
  • Click on the‘world’ icon at the top right of the Ad-Aware SE window and let AdAware SE update the reference list for the adware and malware.
  • Once the update is finished click on the ‘Gear’ icon (second from the left at the top of the window) to access the preferences/settings window:
    • In the ‘General’ window make sure the following are selected in green:
      • Under Safety:
        • Automatically save log-file
        • Automatically quarantine objects prior to removal
        • Safe Mode (always request confirmation)
      • Under Definitions:

    • Click on the ‘Advanced’ button on the left and select in green:
      • Under Shell Integration:
        • Move deleted files to recycle bin

    • Click the ‘Tweak’ button and select in green:
      • Under ‘Scanning Engine’:

Open HiJackThis. It should open to a "New users quickstart" menu

In the "Enter file to delete on reboot..." window, navigate to:

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM

And select the file

XHOFZO.EXE

Go here and make an online virus scan and save the results as a text file. Make sure you check Autoclean.

Post those results and a new Hijackthis log and let us know how your computer is running now.
