I forgot to mention one more thing. After I use the Ewido it seems like it is worse in term of CPU usage.Ewido cleans out Trojans and Spyware but I still see the wuaudt.exe keeps poping in and out and the CPU usage can shows up to 100%. Is it the Windows Automatic Update program?

Please read completely through the instructions below and download the files from the links provided. You may want to save or print out these instructions for easier reference.

Hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete, Click on TaskManager
Select Applications tab
Select New Task
In the name field, type "eventvwr.msc" then hit OK

Look in the System section and the Application section for any errors and try to post them as well.

Download Lavasoft's Ad-Aware and the VX2 Cleaner Plug-in. Install Ad-Aware using the default options, then install vx2cleaner_inst.exe, taking all the defaults there as well.

Run Ad-Aware, update to the latest definitions, then click on Add-ons in the lefthand column. Select VX2 Cleaner V2.0 and click Run Tool. Click "OK", then, if something is found, click "Clean" as in the directions given. Click "Close", and exit Ad-Aware.

Reboot your PC and run Ad-Aware again. This time, click on the Start button in Ad-Aware, select "Perform smart system scan" and click Next. Once the scan finishes, click "Next" again. Select all objects found (right click anywhere in the list of found objects and click "Select All Objects"). Click "Next" one more time, then "OK" to confirm the removal.

You will be prompted to set Ad-Aware to run on reboot, click "OK". Exit Ad-Aware and restart your PC once again.

When Ad-Aware starts up, click on "Start", then "Next". Follow the steps above if anything is found, or click "Finish", then exit Ad-Aware.

Run HijackThis and Check the following for removal : ( if present)

Click on Fix Checked

Reboot and run another HijackThis log.

I also noticed that you have 2 antivirus programs installed. They tend to not get along with each other. After we get this fixed, i recommend you uninstall one of them.

I ran Lavasoft before VX2 and remove AVG antivirus software then reboot. Miraculously, the desktop comes back. However, it painfully slowing painting each icon on desktop as it comes back. I cannot tell what is going since whatever I scan it all comes back and says clean. I mean Spybot, Lava, Ewido they all say clean. It takes about more than a minute or two to see the desktop icons after the wall paper already appears. Then the hardrive LED keeping lights up constantly to tell me that something is still hogging but I just can tell. However, about 5 minutes after the desktop is on completely things seems to be normal. What is your recommandation for Spyware and Virus protection anyway. Is Ewido any good? It scans eerything but memory (still gets stuck at VM_7FFE0000 everytime-I sent email and ask them already). I used LAvasoft before and I thought Spybot was better but this time I think Lavasoft probably the one that help me out along with Ewido. I am greatly appreciate your devotion fo support. Can I make some donation thru Paypal or something?

There are a couple files I am concerned about.

I would like you to go here :

Jotti Virusscan

At the top hit the browse button and browse to these files, one at a time, and hit the submit button after each :

C:\PPMG42B\STLG42B.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\system32\LRSG42B.EXE


Copy the results and paste them here for each file !

I will then proceed when I get the results !!

If you want to donate:
Support Our Site

How is your system running now ??

Congratulations! Your log is CLEAN :tazz:

Real Time Prevention
SpywareBlaster

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.
IESpyad : This will add several hundred Restricted Sites to the Restricted site zone in IE.

Cleaner:
CCleaner is a good app to clean out temp files, cookies, recent folder(win2000) and Prefetch folder(XP), etc

Spyware Scanners:
Ad-aware SE Scans your system for spyware and other threats
a˛ Scanner : Scans for Malware and Trojans on your system.

Good Free Antivirus Programs:
AVG
Avast!

Windows Update:
It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks.
Windows Update

Firewalls:
If you have an "always on " internet connection, such as DSL or Cable, I recommend a firewall:
Sygate
ZoneAlarm

These next steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection
Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness.

Alternatives Browsers:
FireFox
Opera

Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

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

Remember always use just 1 antivirus program at a time. Using more than one causes a conflict between the programs !!

Using these apps, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. :)
