I consistently run Ad-aware/spybot/CCleaner/Registry Mechanic/Spyware Doctor/SpywareBlaster......(I like clean computers! :tazz: )

But I think there are some bogus values on this HijacThis! list.

Also, I posted here a while back about a little window that appears every so often on the taskbar, and then disappears. I assume it has to do with my printer, but cannot figure out how to get rid of it.

With that, here's the log.

I am not currently running a firewall or constant antivirus. I have not had much trouble (because I constantly remove worms and spyware), but should I have PC-cillin or ZoneAlarm on here? What will it protect me from that what I'm already doing does not?

Thanks!!

Hi Flipperbw,

Your log looks clean :tazz: .

However, it is critical you run a firewall and anti-virus. May I suggest the following free products which I can highly recommend (I use them personally) :

Firewall : ZoneAlarm
Anti-virus : AVG Free

Can you provide any further information on this window that is appearing on the task bar every so often? What does it look like? Does it have a name or contain an icon or text? How often does it appear and is it related to you performing an action (e.g. clicking on something, surfing the web)?

The good news is I don't think this is Malware related :)

Thanks :woot:

Thanks for the reply.

As for the little window thing, it has absolutely nothing on it, but I know it has to do with the printer. Something about the software makes the little thing pop up every so often. As far as I know, there's no fix.

My bigger problem is that after a few programs have been launched, or sometimes even just by minimizing a window, the computer totally freezes. I mean, first all the programs freeze, but I can still move the mouse. Then Ctrl+alt+delete doesn't work. Then the mouse stops moving, and I have to press the power button on the cpu to turn it off.

This is VERY aggravating and was why I was asking about the log. I don't know what's causing it, considering all the time I spend making sure the computer is in good shape.

I'm thinking of just reinstalling windows.

What do you think?

Hey Flipperbw :)

Re-installing Windows is an option, but is usually a last resort. There are other options available first such as repairing your Windows installation etc.

As we have ruled out malware as your problem, please can I ask you to visit the Windows XP forum and post a new topic about your problem. Please state in your topic that you have had a HJT log reviewed by the malware guys and it is clean.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I strongly advise you install a permanent firewall and anti-virus. Although you regularly perform scans for viruses and spyware (which is a good thing), new variants are appearing every day and some will not be picked up by these scans. Prevention is better than the cure :tazz:

I will just give you a few ideas on how to stay safe out there. Best of all these programs are all readily available on the net for free :woot:

To reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend 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 attempts.

More info and download is available at:

Spyware Blaster Spyware Guard

Might I suggest the following Free Spyware programs for added security, you can download them at the following links. These programs work great for detection:

Ad-aware SE--Adaware Tutorial

Spybot S&D--Spybot Tutorial

Antiviruses play an important role in keeping your computer safe and worry free while using the net. *NOTE* Only one antivirus must be allowed to run on your computer, as having two or more running can and will cause conflicts.

AVG Avast

Firewalls are also a must in any good prevention :

Zone Alarm Sygate Kerio

There are different browsers available on the net, other than Internet Explorer, we believe!! these are better for security purposes :

Firefox Opera

You must stay on top of your updates at all times, for the above mentioned applications.

It is vitally important to stay on top of your critical updates provided by microsoft.

This can be accessed by going to Windows Updates and following the prompts.

To add to the performance of your computer, i suggest a weekly maintenance program. Run this tool. Ccleaner

Lastly a second opinion on the Antivirus that you have chosen. I suggest running these online virus scans periodically, just to make sure that the av is doing a proper job, of keeping you safe :

Rav Online Scan Housecall Online Scan Panda Activescan

Housecall Java Online Scan<---For those who use Firefox, or opera.

And finally a little Posted Image How did I get infected in the first place ? (by Mr. Tony Klein and dvk01)

Good luck and safe surfing :woot:
