:tazz: Hi Don77,
thanks for replying. After I posted the hjt my computer got faster and seems to be doing a lot better. I just needed to reboot to straighten everything out. I really had a lot of spyware accumulated on my computer. But thanks to the help I received here from looking at other posts I got rid of the spys and I intend to keep them out by doing scans daily after going to various sites during the day.
By the way does 77 stand for anything?
Thanks again,
lakep7 :)

Hi lakep7.
Glad to hear you got it all sorted out and the machine is running good again,

By the way does 77 stand for anything?

Its not my age :tazz:
It just my lucky number :)

A few things you can do to help prevent reinfection,

Nice job your log is clean !
How is it running ?
Please use the following suggestion to help prevent reinfection

Download the following program, For keeping crap off your system to begin with
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.
Download Spyware Blaster

Keep AD-Aware. and Spybot 1.3 handy, Check them for updates prior to running and run them weekly
Same with your Anti Virus,

For an added check run an online virus scan, you can use one of the 2 below,
TrendMicro's HouseCall

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.
Click Start | Run | type in cleanmgr | OK

Let it scan your system for files to remove.

Make sure Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are the only things checked.

Press OK to remove them.

Remeber to Check Windows for updates

Probably a good time to create a new restore point See Here for XP

See Here for ME Name it clean or something like that,

BTW, Good luck with your training :)

Hi Don,
Just wanted to let you know what I have to run. I have Norton System Works, Adaware SE, Spybot, Ewido, Trend Micro, Spyware Blaster, and HJT. Plus I have Roxio Go Back, and I think Norton has a restore plus I hace system restore. So hopefully I have all my bases covered. I do updates to Windows and all the others also.
Thanks again for your reply. :tazz: :)
