Augh!@#!@# ;)
I have a problem where I have multiple svchost.exe's and one seems to be crashing all my games/programs! It takes more memmory usage in taskmanager than the other svchost.exe programs, and causes IE pop-unders which minimize my games/programs even when not connected to the internet!!!
Also, I have this strange pokapoka62.exe (found it using msconfig) that won't go away no matter how hard I try to kill it (using Hijackthis and AVG). I've even tried to go through regedit and rename/delete the registry keys but it keeps coming back. I've deleted the contents of the invisible etb folder that it uses, but still comes back. On my machine, I cannot see the etb folder. HELP!!! AIEEE! :tazz:

here's my hijack this log:

arograth,

Welcome to the GTG Forums, I will be reviewing your HJT log.
Please read "ALL" of the instructions before proceeding:

You may want to print out these instructions for a reference or you can
save them by copying and pasting them into notepad and saving the text file to the desktop.

This process will take a few steps, please take your time and follow the directions in the order posted.
If you dont understand something please ask before performing any task..

Please download LQfix.zip

Unzip the file and save it to your desktop:
Do not use it yet!
Next please follow these steps:

Reboot your computer in SafeMode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, start tapping the F8 key.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.
Important Note: You must boot into SafeMode or the fix will fail!
  • DoubleClick LQfix.bat that you saved to your desktop.
  • A DOS window will open and close again, this is normal.
  • Reboot your system back into Normal Mode and post a new HJT log by using Add Reply
Thanks,
rstones12

arograth,

Please read "ALL" of the instructions before proceeding:

Scan with HJT and place a checkmark next to each of the following items:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [IPInSightLAN 01] "C:\Program Files\Visual Networks\Visual IP InSight\SBC\IPClient.exe" -l

O16 - DPF: {A16E6189-A1DD-4696-9806-0324C145D794} - http://www.jraun.com...ActivexTest.ocx

Close all browsers and open windows except HJT, then click the Fix Checked button. Close HJT.

Now using Windows Explorer find and remove the following folders/files if present.

C:\Program Files\Visual Networks\Visual IP InSight\SBC\IPClient.exe <-- File

Now please do the following:

Download:
Spybot S&D 1.4
Ad-Aware SE 1.06


Here are the download and install instructions:

Spybot S&D Setup

Ad-Aware SE Setup

Once you have scanned and removed the bad entries with these two programs, please post a new HJT log by using Add Reply

Thanks,
rstones12
