Welcome to GTG Cruser. Always use normal mode for logs, and don't disable any startup items in MSConfig.

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.

Did you do this:

F1 - win.ini: run=PTLSEQ.CPL,lxbyppls.exe
(PhoenixNet Bios Adware click here)


What I found odd are these two entries, in addition to the above one listed.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [lxbymon.exe] "C:\Program Files\Lexmark P910 Series\lxbymon.exe"

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [LXBYCATS] rundll32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\LXBYtime.dll,_RunDLLEntry@16


I googled both of them and couldn't find any other entries but yours. You must have a lexmark printer. I went to their site to see if I could find the installation executables, but couldn't. I wonder if we deleted them from the start-up, if that would help. The printers would still be operational.

Did you try turning off your system restore and running adaware, etc.?

What is the exact entry you are getting from spybot?

yes, I did delete the first item you asked about (F1 - win.ini: run=PTLSEQ.CPL,lxbyppls.exe) and now the PTLSEQ.CPL is gone
and yes I do have Lexmark printer. Will try what you said. With Spybot I get in red p*** Hijacked and when I click the check box it gives me <$REG_APPID> HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID\ and off to the far right it has Registry value. Should I get rid on both Starte.exe running processes or just one. I also found a medialloads enchanced\ME1.dll, which adware & spybot did not find and I am going to take of that tonight hopefully. Not sure about your statement "Did you try turning off your system restore and running adaware". What restore? I going have adware run when I click on it. Looking forward to your reply

be careful playing with the registry unless you really know what you're doing.

sometimes spybot gives me fits. I don't use it any more. Some false-positives. I just use adaware.

You don't have to run hijack this again to stop those two from the start-up.

Just go to Run>>type in "msconfig" without the quotation marks. Click on selective start-up and go to the last tab. Open that up and uncheck those two entries.

Play around with it and see if it makes a difference.

Did you empty your temp. files?

Click on start>>my computer>>C drive>>Properties>>Clean disc.

Let us know how it's working.

OK. Good. We have all levels of knowledge on this board (including my own).

These are the instructions on system restore. It gets rid of some things that might be lurking, but I really don't think that's it.

***
To reset your restore points, please note that you will need to log into your computer with an account which has full administrator access. You will know if the account has administrator access because you will be able to see the System Restore tab. If the tab is missing, you are logged in under a limited account.

(Windows XP)
1. Turn off System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

2. Reboot.

3. Turn ON System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check *Turn off System Restore*.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

I just know when I was working on a friend's computer - I probably spent about 20-25 hours on one of their returns and finally checked it through the registry, etc., and it wasn't there. So, I quit using it.

My bad: I was typing from a 98 when I emailed you. Here are the instructions for a 98 for temp. files, which you probably already know.

Please delete your temporary files by deleting all files and folders that are in those folders (do not delete the temp folder itself) like for example
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\
C:\Temp\
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp\
Also delete your Temporary Internet Files, be sure to also select delete all offline content.

They didn't start adding system restore until Windows ME.

Here's some instructions for adaware.


Download Ad-aware from: http://www.geekstogo...n=download&id=5

Install the program and launch it.

First, in the main window, look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now and download the latest reference files.

Next, we need to configure Ad-aware for a full scan.

-> Click on the Gear icon (second from the left) to access the preferences/settings window

1. In the General window make sure the following are selected:
  • Automatically save log-file
  • Automatically quarantine objects prior to removal
  • Safe Mode (always request confirmation)
2. Click on the Scanning button on the left and select :
  • Scan Within Archives
  • Scan Active Processes
  • Scan Registry
  • Deep Scan Registry
  • Scan my IE favorites for banned URL’s
  • Scan my Hosts file
  • Under Click here to select drives + folders, choose:
  • All of your hard drives
-> Click on the Advanced button on the left and select:
  • Include additional process information
  • Include additional file information
  • Include environment information
  • Include additional object details
-> Click the Tweak button and select:
  • Under the Scanning Engine:
    • Unload recognized processes during scanning
    • Include basic Ad-aware settings in logfile
    • Include additional Ad-aware settings in logfile
  • Under the Cleaning Engine:
    • Let Windows remove files in use at next reboot
-> Click on Proceed to save the settings.

-> Click Start and on the next screen choose Activate in-depth Scan at the bottom of the page and then choose:
  • Use Custom Scanning Options
-> Click Next and Ad-aware will scan your hard drive(s) with the options you have selected.

-> Save the log file when it asks and then click Finish

-> When finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose Select All from the drop down menu and click Next).

-> Reboot your computer.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log in this same topic.
