Have the file called 'kixkkn.exe' trying to access the internet when I first boot up and periodically during my computer usage. I block all access when my firewall (McAfee) asks to grant access. Am curious as to whether this is legit software or not. Would like to know what program it is associated with, what it is trying to do, and whether I need to keep it OR if it is a piece of spyware how to remove...

Thanks for your help...

That sounds like a random filename and thus almost automatically bad news.

Could you post a HijackThis log?

Please use the latest version - it can be found in my signature. The version you are using is very old and won't pick up everything. :tazz:

Completed the actions identified in your response... here is the HiJackThis Log after the fixes...

Question; noticed the following line in the HiJackThis Log... what does this do OR is this something that should be removed. I thought I recalled somewhere a thread relating to the NVCplDaemon topic OR I could be confusing it w/ a trojan w/ a similar type name...
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NvCplDaemon] RUNDLL32.EXE NvQTwk,NvCplDaemon initialize

Thanks for your help and great job... :tazz:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NvCplDaemon] RUNDLL32.EXE NvQTwk,NvCplDaemon initialize

It's a legitimate (but optional) entry related to your nVidia graphics card.

Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Windows AdControl] C:\Program Files\Windows AdControl\WinAdCtl.exe

Please reboot into safe mode (continually tap the F8 key while your system is starting, select Safe Mode from the menu).
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):
C:\Program Files\Windows AdControl <- this folder

Here is my latest HiJackThis Log... performed the specified operations... did not see the folder Windows AdControl and remember deleting it the first time around... maybe I forgot to perform the fix in the HiJackThis operation... I checked to make sure I was viewing hidden files...

Appreciate your patience... finding out if you don't stay on top of this spyware issue it can really come back to bite you big time... :tazz:

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN :tazz:

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use) Click Here.

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend FireFox Posted Image.
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder if everything is working okay.

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. ;)

Thanks for all of your help...

I have SpywareBlaster installed and have my computer on an automatic check for updates. Ran your link as a backup and no new updates were identified for Windows. I run access to the internet thru AOL... does that add any protection vs. using FireFox. Seldom access directly thru IE.

Again, thanks for all of your help... The staff at GeeksToGo do a great job... :tazz:
