Here's the errors that showed up from mwav. I haven't done the thing in your last post yet. I'll do that and see if that fixes the error windows at start up. Thanks so much for checking on that. I noticed that someone in the operating system forum responded to my post today about it that I made a few days ago, but they told me to do something and then referred me back to this forum to check for malware so I guess we'll see what these errors show. I really appreciate all your help with this.

I have been making some enquiries on your behalf with colleagues to find the cause of your error message at boot-up.

If you'd care to run HJT again and put a checkmark next to the F3 - REG:win.ini: load=??? entry and the one directly below (? and a square) and then click Fix Checked.  It is possible that this instruction is hitting your Win.ini file.

Just did this and restarted and it seems to have gotten rid of those 2 messages I was getting at the start-up. Yay! That was driving me nuts. :tazz: Thank you! Hopefully we can find out where that was coming from now.

Congratulations! your new log is so clean, I would eat my dinner off it. :tazz: Just a little bit more to do to prevent further infection.

Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove bad files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programmes changing them. This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected.)

To reset your restore points, please note that you will need to log into your computer with an account which has full administrator access. You will know if the account has administrator access because you will be able to see the System Restore tab. If the tab is missing, you are logged in under a limited account.

(Windows XP)
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. Reboot.

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.
I recommend going to the following link and update as recommended by Microsoft. This adds more security and extra features including a pop-up blocker for Internet Explorer. Microsoft Update

Now that everything is fixed, I suggest that you consider getting these programmes to help keep the computer clean:

SPYWARE BLASTER - Blocks bad ActiveX items from installing on your computer.
AD-AWARE PERSONAL – A fine free malware detector and removal programme
SPYBOT S&D – Excellent free spyware detector and removal programme
GOOGLE TOOLBAR - Blocks many unwanted pop-ups in Internet Explorer.
FIREFOX - Safer alternative to the Internet Explorer web browser.
AVG ANTIVIRUS FREE EDITION - Free antivirus programme if you currently are not using one.
ZONEALARM - Free firewall programme if you currently are not using one (Windows XP has a built-in firewall).

Remember to update these frequently.

Please note that whilst there is nothing wrong in having more than one antispyware programmes for “on demand” scanning, having two or more antivirus systems is not recommended as they may well interfere with each other.

You may also want to read "How did I get infected in the first place" to learn how to better secure your computer.

Be sure to keep your Windows, antispyware and antivirus updated. :)

Happy safe surfing!

Hi again! Things seem to running ok, but yesterday after I updated my ad-aware I started picking up a real.com cookie. Is there any way to stop that or is it just built in the program? I'm going to post my log just in case you need it.

Hello again

Firstly, your HJT log is still clean. Now cookies are small text files that identify you at websites. Some are good others are bad and used to track you or your habits.

If you use Internet Explorer (haven't you changed to Firefox yet?) click on TOOLS>INTERNET OPTIONS>PRIVACY and slide the slider upwards to the setting which suits you.

The more restrictive you make this setting, the fewer cookies will be allowed. This means that some websites which rely upon cookies will not load.

Yeah, I use Firefox and this cookie is showing in my IE cache, that's what I didn't get. I haven't even used IE for a few weeks. The real.com cookie shows up as a critical cookie with a TAC rating of 3 is why I was concerned. So I must just need to make my IE settings stricter even if I don't use it.

I'm afraid that whilst FF is the best browser, some programmes are embedded to Microsoft Internet Explorer, so if like me you use MSN Messenger or AOL (there are quite a few) cookies will appear in MSIE. Why not crank up the privacy to 100% and block everything in MSIE?

In FF of course it is easy, just go to TOOLS>OPTIONS>PRIVACY>COOKIES and check both boxes and then choose KEEP COOKIES until I close firefox.

The way I prefer however, uses CCleaner (I love that programme). The cookies I need to have for my surfing habits are stored and named within the programme and protected. Then 4 or 5 times a day, I just run the cleaner and zap everything else.

The cookies from Real.com are spies but not malicious.
