Hi Ugandan Maurice and welcome to geekstogo!

Download HijackThis and post a logfile:
  • Download HijackThis.
  • Create a folder named "HijackThis". To create a folder:
    • Go to My Documents.
    • Right-click and select New> Folder.
    • Name the folder as "HijackThis".
  • Extract the contents of hijackthis.zip into the folder you've just created.
  • Open HijackThis.exe
  • Click on "Do a system scan and save a logfile".
  • After the scan is complete a Notepad window will popup.
  • In the Notepad window, go to Edit> Select all and then Edit> Copy.
  • Paste the log into your next reply.
Do NOT fix anything until we check your log. You can cause serious damage to your operating system if you fix a valid entry.

  • Open HiJackThis
  • Click on the configure button on the bottom right
  • Click on the tab "Misc Tools"
  • Click on "Delete File on Reboot"
  • Navigate to this file - C:\ntdetecd.exe
  • Double click on that file.
  • HJT asks you if you want to reboot, now. Click "yes".

Post back when you finish and tell me how your computer is running :tazz:

Hi Excal. I've been keeping an eye on my system for the last couple of days and everything seems to be running fine now. Many thanks for your valuable help. What was the gxlib file trying to do exactly?

This is the info I have on it:

gxlib.exe - Troj/Small-HS is a Trojan which attempts to load a pop-up HTML page each time a user logs onto the computer.
In order to load the remote HTML page, Troj/Small-HS temporarily modifies internet security settings and then launches Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Great job, it appears your computer is clean :tazz:

Ensure you rehide your “hidden files and folders” back to the way they were.

Now that your system is Malware Free, it is important to reset your system Restore. Click Here to learn how to.

I recommend that you Defrag your computer before setting your Restore points:

Go to start>all programs>accessories>system tools>Disk Defragmentor Make sure it set to the proper drive (default should be your main driver) and click on defragment


Might I suggest the following Free Spyware programs, if you don't already have them, for added security, you can download them at the following links. These programs work great for detection:

Ad-aware SE
Spybot S&D
Microsoft Anti-Spyware


If you are unhappy with your current antivirus and want to replace it or if you dont already have one, I suggest one of these free programs:
*Note - do not use more than one anti-virus program as it will more than likely cause conflict.

AVG
Avast
AntiVir


The following free programs are great for prevention:

SpywareBlaster 3.4
Spywareguard
IE/Spyad

A Firewall is a must! Here are 3 good free versions:
(do not have more than one firewall running on your system)

Sygate
Kerio
ZoneLabs

There are other options other than Internet Explorer for a browser, which some say have better security. Two of them are:

Firefox
Opera

If you decide to keep Internet Explorer, This site is a great source for tightening up security on It's settings.

Make sure that you keep your Operating System and IE updated with the latest Critical Security Updates from Microsoft...they usually come out once a month, on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

Included in those updates is Windows XP Service Pack 2. Click Here
Since you're junkware free, the time to get it is NOW. Service Pack 2 is a MAJOR upgrade for XP. It adds numerous security and software patches, as well as new features and functionality. You will also be adding another layer of protection against future threats.

Be sure and give the Temp folders a cleaning out now and then as well, Make sure after you clean your Temp files to empty out your Recycle bin as well.
For ease use the following program:

Cleanup
Run "Cleanup" and when it has finished, Reboot

To help prevent future spyware installations/infections, please read the Anti-Spyware Tutorial and use the tools provided. Also read How I got Infected
