At the moment, the infection seems to have gone thanks to you guys!!!

However, I seem to have lost some space mysteriously on my C drive...I have 19gigs on it - it was a HD purposely set apart for windows XP and program files. So they in total should use no more than about 10 gig... I have nothing else on that drive really. That said, my drive has only about 1gig free (and this value seems to be dropping slowly).
I'm really not sure where the gigabytes in between have all gone!!! And this apparent missing space on my c-drive is making my windows run ever so slowly


Thanks so much for helping me out!! I'm really grateful!!!

Hi,

The HJT log is clean.

Lets do two things -

1)
Download CleanUp
Install the Program.

Run the CleanUp program:

*IMPORTANT NOTE*
CleanUp deletes EVERYTHING out of your temp/temporary folders, it does not make backups.
If you have any documents or programs that are saved in any Temporary Folders, please make a backup of these before running CleanUp

Running CleanUp
  • Start CleanUp by double-clicking the icon on your desktop (or from the Start > All Programs menu).
  • When CleanUp starts go to the Options button (right side of CleanUp screen)
  • Move the arrow down to "Custom CleanUp!"
  • Now place a checkmark next to the following (Make sure nothing else is checked!):
    • Delete Cookies
      This is optional, if you leave the box checked it will remove all of your cookies, at this point removing cookies is a good idea
    • Empty Recycle Bins
    • Delete Prefetch files
    • Cleanup! All Users
  • Click OK
  • Then click on the CleanUp button. This will take a short while, let it do its thing.
  • When asked to reboot system select No
  • Close CleanUp


2) Please visit Panda and do an online scan. Save the scan report and post it here.

I've done the scan and it fixed 4 viruses apparently...I havent got a copy of it cos i left it overnight and in the morning it seemed to have closed itself by the end of it.
My c-drive still has a hugeee chunk of space disappeared. I've done the cleaner program like you told me.

Did you get back some of the space back ??? I guess you still have that problem.

Lets try another tool -


download and follow setup instructions for Ad-Aware SE Setup
Don't run it yet!

Reboot the PC in Safe Mode.

Open Ad-aware and do a full scan. Remove all it finds.

Save the log.

Reboot the PC in Normal Mode and post back the Ad Aware log here

btw, I still have only a gig left on my c-drive which is bizarre...
Is there any way to remove all the temporary or recycler files safely without any adverse effects on my system?? There must be SO many junk files that are there and that I cannot "normally" delete.
I also download a lot of files (large and small in size) regularly. Hope that helps with the diagnosis!!

Thanks again

Hi domyue,

Your logs are clean. The scan reports are all coming out clean.

So what can be the problem ???

If you have downloaded a lot of files and never deleted the files after installing the software then you will have a build up of files and gradual eating up of space !!!!

I delete my temporary and recycler files everyday !!!!!!!!!!! Makes space on the hard diska nd lets the PC operate better !!!!

I had told you to use CleanUp a couple of posts back. Did you use it ?? It should have deleted all temporary files.

I have no idea what files you have on your hard disk !!! So I cant help you with what you should delete. You have to be the sole judge of what you want to keep and what you want to delete.

I have already done the CleanUp tool.
I notice that the scanner goes through a lot of files in the c:\recycler\nprotect folder.
I try deleting them, but some of them don't and also i don't think it's all there in that folder. As the search/scan for files apparently shows a lot more files than i see in explorer.

is this norton's fault?

By default Norton purges ALL files in the recycle bin after a set period of time. to change this or to disable Norton Protected recycle bin simply right click the recycle bin and choose properties then click on the Norton protected tab. there you can either disable Norton recycle bin protection or set the time period you want before files are permanantly purged.

Thanks, I'll disable that feature - i hardly ever remember taking something important out of recycle....haha

The PC is still funny in terms of HD space but don't worry - if it bugs me lots I'll reformat!!
Thanks for all your help!!

I would recommend the following steps to keep your PC clean –

PREVENTIVE MEASURES FOR FUTURE

Operating System
1. Keep the Windows and Internet Explorer updated with the latest fixes. These fixes are available free from Microsoft. Click on Tools in the IE menu bar and then on Windows update. You can also use the following links

Windows security and critical updates
Internet Explorer security and critical updates

Also ensure that automatic updates are enabled for faster updation of the system.
(Right click on My Computer on your desktop, properties and Automatic Updates tab.


Anti-Virus Software
2. Keep your Anti-virus program updated with the latest definitions. Some of the common anti-virus programs in use are :

Norton Anti-Virus
McAfee Anti-Virus
AVG Anti-Virus --- freeware
Avast Home Edition --- freeware

Use only one anti-virus program as multiple such programs can create conflicts between themselves and severely hamper the performance of your PC.


Firewall
3. You should also have a good firewall. Here are 3 free ones available for personal use:
Sygate Personal Firewall, Kerio Personal Firewall, ZoneAlarm


Internet Browsers
4. Have robust explorer settings. It is preferable to use an internet browser other that IE as most of the malware is targetted at IE. In case you prefer to use IE, then download a list of innocent looking but harmful websites from IE-Spyad and install it on ur PC. IE-SPYAD puts over 5000 sites in your internet explorer's restricted zone, so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't really innocent at all.

Some alternate browsers I suggest are Firefox Mozilla Browser and Opera

Ensure that Security level, irrespective of whichever browser you use, is set at Medium or higher, restrict the usage of cookies and activeX components.


Spyware Protection
5. Have a wall of protection against spyware / adware by installing SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard.

SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard are by JavaCool and both are free programs.
SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed and consumes no system resources.
SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation and browser hijack attempts. Both have free ongoing updates.


Spyware Removers
6. Install programs for scanning for malware and uninstalling them. Two of the best programs, both are freeware, are :

Spybot Search & Destroy - A 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 SE Personal Edition - Another very powerful tool which searches and kills nasties that infect your system. AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy compliment each other very well.


Regular Maintenance of PC
7. Finally, invest some time for regular maintenance of your PC. Delete the temporary Internet files, temporary files, cookies etc. Click on Start button, Programs, Accessories, System Tools and run the program Disk Cleanup. Follow the instructions.

An alternate freeware software which can be used is CleanUp.

Keep your Registry clean. My favourite software is Registry First Aid. This is not a freeware but a trial version can be downloaded.
