Hey guys, the following is my hijaack this logfile. It doesnt look like it has alot of bad stuff on it. But these are some of the problems i've been experiencing lately. (I run windows 98 by the way)

When i try to play a file that uses windows media player it says
"An internal application error has occured"
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but nothing works

I have also been getting lots of pop-ups lately. I don't even have to have internet explorer open, and they just pop up. They say stuff like "you have spyware on your pc, we can help) and they come up all the time. Some times there are smily ones and stuff even though i use spybot and ad-aware. Here is one.
http://www.loadingwebsite.com/normal/yyy34.html

Also, when i scan with Norton Anti-virus, it doesn't get rid of all the things that it says are threats.

When i run CWshredder or ad-aware, it says it deletes the small amount of cool web search on out computer but it is still there next time i scan.
CWS.Bootconf <
CWS.Svchost32 < these are the two it days i have.

I need a much more uptodate hijackthis log. Your version is very old.

Please visit the download section from the top of this forum, download, one of the new version 1.99.1 and post back with a new HJT log from that please.

Download L2mfix

Save the file to your desktop and double click l2mfix.exe. Click the Install button to extract the files and follow the prompts, then open the newly added l2mfix folder on your desktop. Double click l2mfix.bat and select option #1 for Run Find Log by typing 1 and then pressing enter. This will scan your computer and it may appear nothing is happening, then, after a minute or 2, notepad will open with a log. Copy the contents of that log and paste it into this thread.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT run option #2 OR any other files in the l2mfix folder until you are asked to do so!

Go to www.trendmicro.com, and then:

1. Click "Free Online Scan".
2. Click "Scan now, it's free".

It'll take a few minutes to download (especially with a dialup connection), so be patient. When it's down:

1. Select all available drives.
2. Check(tick) "Auto Clean".
3. Click "Scan".

When it completes, post back the full filename of any files that cannot be cleaned or deleted.

Download, unzip to your desktop CWShredder and run it, then:

1. Click "Check For Update"

(If an update isn't available, skip to step #4.)

2. Click "Click here to Download the upate".
3. When the new version has been downloaded, click "Save".

4. Click "Fix -]"

If you don't already have it, let's go to Lavasoft's VX2 Cleaner web-page, and follow the instructions to download and install the utility.

-

Next, run AdAware SE Personal, then:

1. Click "Add-Ons".
2. Double-click "VX2 Cleaner"
3. Click "Ok", to "Execute this tool".
4. If nothing is found, click "Ok", then exit the program.

(or)

4. If VX2 has been found on your system, click "Clean System"
5. Then when it's complelely done, reboot your computer.
6. Repeat steps 1-4 again.

Be sure to follow any instructions it might give while using it.

Before we begin, let's move HiJackThis to it's own folder; like c:\HJT. When we're done 'cleaning' off your system, we're going to 'flush' the temporary folders which, with HiJackThis in it's current location, we'll lose both the program and the backups it creates. These backups are important in case we need to restore any 'fixed' entry(s) later.

Also move the "Backups" folder, for HiJackThis, if present.

Run HiJackThis and click "Scan", then check(tick) the following, if present:

O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 auto.search.msn.com
O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 search.netscape.com
O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 ieautosearch
O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 ieautosearch


Now, with all windows closed except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".

Post back a new HIJACKTHIS log.
