this is the first time I have ever tried to use HiJack This, I don't know of any problems with my computer, but I am trying to help out a friend that has some major problems. This is a log from my computer, so that I can learn how to use this tool and then go to my friend's computer and run a scan and log and hopefully help them out. Thanks for any help or advise. Newt

Hijack this is a very powerful tool. I would not suggest that you try it unless you have had a great deal of experience with it.

What would work better is if you posted your friend's log and have the people here look at it.

In the meantime, here's a tutorial on deciphering a hijack this log.

http://www.bleepingc...ware-tut42.html

Your log looks fine. When people start tweaking systems that are working well, you're asking for trouble most of the time. I use the analogy as the one I used when my children were small: if they are happy doing something (playing with a book, a ball, etc.), don't try to change gears. Let them continue doing what makes them happy until they are unhappy and then try to troubleshoot. :tazz:

Thanks for your review of my log and the advice. I am not savvy enough to go about changing anything on anyone's computer without the guidance of someone like G2G. Fortunately I'm intelligent enough to also know my limitations. I am going to post my friends log but I wanted to try it on mine first so I could get you to check the condition of my computer and to make certain that I was doing the process correctly. My friends computer is so whacked that producing the HJT log, cutting it, pasting it and forwarding it will probably take several hours. With the experience of having done it once on my computer, I can proceed with a degree of confidence.
Thanks for the link to the tutorial. I am going back and check it out. Also, if you have anymore literature or links that you think germaine, I would appreciate the input. Thanks again for the reply. Newt :tazz:

I think the "read this before you post a hijack this log" is good information, as well as the tutorial I just sent you.

You look clean and when we pronounce someone as clean, this is the advice that we give:

The following is a list of tools and utilities that I like to suggest to people. This list is full of great tools and utilities to help you understand how you got infected and how to keep from getting infected again.
  • Spybot Search & Destroy - Uber powerful tool which can search and annhilate nasties that make it onto your system. Now with an Immunize section that will help prevent future infections.
  • AdAware - Another very powerful tool which searches and kills nasties that infect your system. AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy compliment each other very well.
  • SpywareBlaster - Great prevention tool to keep nasties from installing on your system.
  • SpywareGuard - Works as a Spyware "Shield" to protect your computer from getting malware in the first place.
  • IE-SpyAd - puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.
  • CleanUP! - Cleans temporary files from IE and Windows, empties the recycle bin and more. Great tool to help speed up your computer and knock out those nasties that like to reside in the temp folders.
  • Windows Updates - It is very important to make sure that both Internet Explorer and Windows are kept current with the latest critical security patches from Microsoft. To do this just start Internet Explorer and select Tools > Windows Update, and follow the online instructions from there.
  • Google Toolbar - Free google toolbar that allows you to use the powerful Google search engine from the bar, but also blocks pop up windows.
  • Trillian or Miranda-IM - These are Malware free Instant Messenger programs which allow you to connect to multiple IM services in one program! (AOL, Yahoo, ICQ, IRC, MSN)
  • Weather Watcher - Free taskbar weather program that is free, malware free, and resource light.
To find out more information about how you got infected in the first place and some great guidelines to follow to prevent future infections you can read this article by Tony Klein

Thanks for the input, I use most of what you listed and update everything daily as I log off the Net. I also use Mozilla Firefox almost exclusively except when I am forced to use IE, ironically it is for the most sensitive websites such as banking.
I am using SpywareBlaster, and you suggest that I should use Spy Guard and IE-Spy Ad too? I guess it is like the difference between Ad-Aware and Spybot, I'll have to check them out. I use CCleaner daily, should I use Clean up also? I don't use Instant Messenger, I feel like that is invasive like getting telemarketing calls during dinner, and I use Google alot and the Fox Forecaster with FireFox. But I will listen to your advice and check out the programs that you listed. Thanks for the input, this will help me continue my vigilance to stay ahead of the bad guys in this mischevious chess game of web surfing. Thanks again, Newt :)

P.S. I also use Windows update automatic download, prompt to install and I scan with Ewido Free, which seems to detect several things that Ad-Aware and Spybot overlook, especially in Firefox. I tried out both Avast and AVG. I then tested both with the "Test Virus" from Ewido. Avast never saw it but AVG detected it immediately before Ewido could find it. I chose AVG and finally I use Kerio Personal Firewall Free. Thanks for the help. Newt
phew the game goes on! :tazz:

I shouldn't have recommended ccleaner. I would rather use CleanUp!, but I really prefer to delete without using a program.

I also don't like Spyware Guard, but some of my colleagues do.

I use spyware blaster, firewall, antiviral, adaware. And that's it.

Thanks for the comeback, but you didn't recommend CCleaner, you suggested Clean Up. So you like Clean Up better than CCleaner? Can I ask how you go about cleaning up by deleting? Is there an article or something that you could direct me to? I always go back and clean out downloads and duplicates of downloads and things like that, but what about Internet Temporary files and registry entries? Also, if you think this is too much for a layman I'll just switch to Clean Up. Thanks Again. Newt :tazz:

Please delete your temporary files. Double Click My Computer (WinXP: Navigate to Start --->My Computer)
You will see an icon representing your harddrive (most likely C: Drive) Right Click on the hard drive icon and click Properties at the
bottom of the fly out window. One the very first tab (General) you will see a button labeled "Disk Cleanup"...click that button.
Make sure the following are checked:
Downloaded Program Files
Temporary Internet Files and
Recycle Bin

Click OK and Disk Cleanup will delete those files for you.

Thanks again Coachwife 6, I greatly appreciate all the advice. It appears that I've got a pretty decent defense going on so I will give you some peace and stop picking your brain. Thanks again Newt. :tazz:
