Hi welcome to GeeksToGo

I don't see any antivirus running on your computer. Please download either one of these, both are free.

Antivir
AVG

Download, install, update and make a full system scan.

Open HijackThis and click Scan. Put a check next to this:

F1 - win.ini: run= C:\WINDOWS\system\sservice.exe

Close all other windows except HijackThis and click Fix Checked.

Boot into safe mode by tapping the F8 key before Windows starts to load.

Navigate to and delete this file if it still exists:

C:\WINDOWS\system\sservice.exe

Reboot back to normal mode, go here and make a online scan. Let it delete what it can and save the results as a text file.

http://www.pandasoft...com/activescan/

Then come back here and post a new HijackThis log along with the Panda results and any comments you have.

Thank You for responding, I could not get rid of sservices.exe using the technique you mentioned, I did a fresh install and started over. I do seem to be having a problem with Activex however, I am unable to run Panda's online scanner. Do u have any suggestions??

Do you mean you reinstalled Windows? You didn't have to do that..

What kind of difficulty did you run into when you were following the instructions?

I still don't see any antivirus running there, please install one..

As for Activex let's try this..but what exactly happens when you try to run the Panda scan?

- From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
- Click once on the Security tab
- Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
- Click once on the Custom Level button.
- Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
- Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
- Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
- Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
- Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to - Prompt
- Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to - Prompt
- When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
- If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
- Press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.


See if that helps..

Do you get any error messages? See if anything on this page applies..

http://inetexplorer....rs3.htm#activex

If not it may be a good idea to check your System for errors..

We are going to run System File Checker, to make sure all of your protected files are not corrupt. The scan will automatically replace any corrupt files that it finds.

Click Start
Select Run
At the prompt type sfc /scannow Please note that there is a single space between sfc and /scannow.

Typing this will start the program, and a box should appear telling you how much longer the process should take.

Sometimes the scan will prompt you for your Windows XP disc upon starting the scan. if this happens please make sure that you can view protected files:My Computer
Tools
Folder Options
View
"Uncheck" Hide protected operating system files.
Then rerun the scan. If this still asks you to put in your windows XP CD, and you do not have the CD (If you bought it preinstalled) post back for more tips, otherwise enter Windows CD.

Once the scan is complete:

Check your Windows Updates! After using the File Protection Service, you might need to reapply some updates.

Please reboot, and let me know if anything has changed.

Also, please rehide the protected files:My Computer
Tools
Folder Options
View
"Check" Hide protected operating system files.
Also, run this online scan..Let's see if Panda can find anything..once it's done save the results and post them here..

http://www.pandasoft...com/activescan/

Let's see how this goes..

Ok, I've got it all sorted out now, it was a conflict with my Norton Cleansweep monitoring installs, as soon as i turned it off.... no problems. Just one more question, what are R0 entries in hijackthis ? I have two that read the same:

Good to hear you have sorted your problem.

R0 is for Internet Explorers starting page and search assistant.

You can safely fix those entries in HijackThis.

Please take the following into consideration to maintain a clean computer.

Now you should go get a firewall. Pick one of these, they are all free.
Zonealarm
Sygate

Visit Windows Update regularly to get the latest security updates.You can also enable automatic updates.Your antivirus software and antispyware programs should also be updated regularly. Make a habit of running scans on a timely basis. Be careful about what you download, scan every file before clicking on it.

Additional programs to consider:

Spywareblaster Prevents the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted software.Blocks spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.Restricts the actions of potentially unwanted sites in Internet Explorer.
Spywareguard An anti-virus program scans files before you open them and prevents execution if a virus is detected - SpywareGuard does the same thing, but for spyware!
IE/Spyad
Adds a list of malicious sites to your Restricted Sites Zone.
Firefox An alternate browser safer than IE

A good article to read:
So how did I get infected in the first place?

Regards,

Armodeluxe
