Great job, it appears your computer is clean :tazz:

Ensure you rehide your “hidden files and folders” back to the way they were.

Now that your system is Malware Free, it is important to reset your system Restore. Click Here to learn how to.

I recommend that you Defrag your computer before setting your Restore points:

Go to start>all programs>accessories>system tools>Disk Defragmentor Make sure it set to the proper drive (default should be your main driver) and click on defragment


Might I suggest the following Free Spyware programs, if you don't already have them, for added security, you can download them at the following links. These programs work great for detection:

Ad-aware SE
Spybot S&D
Microsoft Anti-Spyware


If you are unhappy with your current antivirus and want to replace it or if you dont already have one, I suggest one of these free programs:
*Note - do not use more than one anti-virus program as it will more than likely cause conflict.

AVG
Avast
AntiVir


The following free programs are great for prevention:

SpywareBlaster 3.4
Spywareguard
IE/Spyad

A Firewall is a must! Here are 3 good free versions:
(do not have more than one firewall running on your system)

Sygate
Kerio
ZoneLabs

There are other options other than Internet Explorer for a browser, which some say have better security. Two of them are:

Firefox
Opera

If you decide to keep Internet Explorer, This site is a great source for tightening up security on It's settings.

Make sure that you keep your Operating System and IE updated with the latest Critical Security Updates from Microsoft...they usually come out once a month, on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

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.
For ease use the following program:

Cleanup
Run "Cleanup" and when it has finished, Reboot

To help prevent future spyware installations/infections, please read the Anti-Spyware Tutorial and use the tools provided. Also read How I got Infected

Hello Excal,

sorry for this other post, but I just ran ewido and it found again that file. Below I attached the report.

I'm starting to think that it's an ewido problem....

Thanks

Hi and thanks for your help.

I tried to go on Start than Run and paste the quote that you gave me, but it didn't work.

It did work ADSSpy. The result is C:\WINDOWS\Q816486.log : hlbsrg (197756 bytes).

I tried to see the contents but it didn't display properly.

Thank you very much

Run HijackThis. Click on "Config...", "Misc Tools", "Open ADS Spy...". Click on "Scan", and on "Save log..." to save what it finds. Please post the resulting log here.

You know, every time I scan the computer with ewido it keeps finding the file xtaa.dll

Should I just forget about it?

Thank you

It appears to be a ADS, but its not showing up in the ads search, so it must be a problem with Ewido?
