Hi TD!

WOW things are already running so much better! Thank you so much. Here are the logs that you requested. So far I havent had a pop-up yet from the usual sites. There were two files I could not find. the first one is the C:\windows\systems32\iti.dll The second was C:\windows\systems32\2236_28.dll

Also while using hijackthis to clean the checked files, I got an error message #5 or something along those lines. Other than that things are working well.

Here are the logs and let me know if there is anything else that I should do.

Hello vicdotcom,
You've done a great job :thumbleft:

You may remove through Add/Remove Programs the AVG Program, as you have Trndmicro. You can delete smitfraud fix as well and it's folder.
Please go to The AVG Program folder-->> Open it's quarantine folder:
    Right click in open area of right window and select all
    Right click again and choose delete
    Close window


I see that Viewpoint is installed.

Viewpoint, Viewpoint Manager, Viewpoint Media Player are Viewpoint components which are installed as a side effect of installing other software, most notably AOL and AOL Instant Messenger (AIM). Viewpoint Manager is responsible for managing and updating Viewpoint Media Player’s components. Viewpoint Manager is considered as foistware instead of malware since it is installed without user's approval but doesn't spy or do anything "bad". In 2006, this may change, read Viewpoint to Plunge Into Adware.

I suggest you remove the program now. Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and remove the following programs if present:
  • Viewpoint
  • Viewpoint Manager
  • Viewpoint Media Player
If AOL is present, to prevent it from being recreated every time you run the AOL software:
  • Open AOL
  • Go to Help on the toolbar
  • Select About AOL
  • Hit Ctrl D and a secret panel can be accessed which will allow you to disable all desktop and IM features associated with Viewpoint.
Another way to prevent Viewpoint from being recreated every time you run the AOL software is:
  • Click C:\Program Files\AOL 9.0\Jiti (a hidden folder).
  • Rename viewpoint.exe to viewpoint.old.
This is the item to fix in HijackThis.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ViewMgr] C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\Viewpoint Manager\ViewMgr.exe

Before Surfing UPDATE XP
You can help the fight, report it at Malware Complaints
Stand Up and be Counted!

Some of your legitimate programs will leave .tmp files as they run. Clean these out regularly. Before running a scan is a good time.

Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit
XP Updates

Use the following and KEEP UPDATED atleast WEEKLY
Spybot S&D
CCleaner *Use With Caution* Do Not Use the Issues Catagory without Guidance*

Needed Firewall: Monitors traffic In and OUT Bound. Very Important. * Use Only One*
Zone Alarm

Java Updates:
Java Update

Antivirus: *Use only one*

Test open Ports:
SheildsUp (follow the links to Shield's-Up!)

Other Protection:

*How on earth did I get infected in the first place?
Read Here

Also use online scanners as well; as some spyware/virus can disable your software. Check out these:

ActiveScan by Panda
Kaspersky Online Scanner

**Keep IE Secure:
Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    Click once on the Security tab
    Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    Click once on the Custom Level button.
    Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
    Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
    Change the Initialise and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
    Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
    Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
    Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt

When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.

Thank You
Safe and Happy Surfing :)
