Hi wckicker,
-----------------------------------------------------------
Set Your Computer to Show All Files
  1. Click Start.
  2. Click My Computer.
  3. Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  4. Select the View Tab.
  5. Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.
  6. Uncheck Hide protected operating system files (recommended).
  7. Click Yes to confirm.
  8. Uncheck the Hide file extensions for known file types.
  9. Click OK.

In addition, go to Start, Search. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that 'Search system folders', 'Search hidden files and folders', and 'Search subfolders' are checked.
-----------------------------------------------------------
The unregistered version of FlashGet packages itself with Cydoor adware and is supposed to remove the adware if you register.
I would strongly recommend removing this software.
I suggest you remove it via the Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs feature.
For some reviews of download managers, see here : http://www.safer-networking.org/en/articles/download-managers.html
You might want to take a look at an alternative called Leechget here : http://www.leechget.net/en/
-----------------------------------------------------------
Submit a file to Jotti
Please go here : http://virusscan.jotti.org/
On top of the page there is a field to add the filepath.
Copy and paste this filepath:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\conime.exe

Then hit Submit or Upload, depending on the scanner.
The scan will take a while before the result comes up so please be patient.
Then copy and/or save the result and post it here in this thread.

If Jotti's service load is too high, you can use the following scanner instead:
http://www.virustotal.com/xhtml/index_en.html
or virus.org here: http://scanner.virus.org/
-----------------------------------------------------------
Post a New HJT Log
Reboot your computer. Start HijackThis. Click Do System Scan and Save a Log File.
When the Scan is complete, select the whole log (Ctrl-A), copy and paste the log contents in a reply, along with the Jotti results.

wckicker,
Your log is clean. There are some changes you can make that will offer improved protection going forward.
------------------------------------------------------------
Update your Java.
Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system.
Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components.
  • Close any programmes you may have running, ESPECIALLY your web browser
  • Click Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment, JRE, J2SE, or Java Webstart in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove all versions of Java.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.

Then download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment, and install it to your computer.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Secure your Internet Explorer
- From within Internet Explorer, click on the Tools menu and then click on Internet 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 Initialize 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
- Click on the Advanced Tab
- Uncheck the box "Enable Install On Demand (Internet Explorer)"
- Uncheck the box "Enable Install On Demand (Other)"
- 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.
- Press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Options page
-----------------------------------------------------------
Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will add a large list of programs and sites to your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from accidentally running or downloading known malicious programs. Available from http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
After the installation, click Download Latest Protection Updates. When it finishes, click Enable All Protection.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Download and Install a HOSTS File
A Hosts file is a plain text file which prevents your computer from inadvertently connecting to malware, spyware and adware sites by redirecting the connection request back to your own machine address (127.0.0.1).
If you use a proxy server, or if you are on AOL, or if you use Norton to scan e-mail, be sure to read the special instructions.

BlueTack's HOSTS Manager is here:
http://www.bluetack.co.uk/forums/index.php?act=dscript&CODE=showdetails&f_id=5
If you download and install it first, you can use it to handle your HOSTS file download, edits, and most any other HOSTS issue.

Download and Read an excellent instruction about HOSTS files (the Bluetack version) here:
http://www.bluetack.co.uk/forums/index.php?showtopic=8406
Be sure to read the note about disabling the service "DNS Client" when using large HOSTS files, to avoid slowdowns.
This is how to do it:
Stop and Disable the DNS Client Service
Go to Start, Run OR Start, Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt and type Services.msc and click OK.
Under the Extended Tab, Scroll down and find this service.
DNS Client
Click once on the service to highlight it. Click Stop
Right-Click on the service. Click onProperties
Select the General tab. Click the Arrow-down tab on the right-hand side at the Start-up Type box.
From the drop-down menu, click on Manual
Click the Apply tab, then click OK


If you have a firewall, you may have to give permission to Unlock the present default HOSTS file before you copy / install the new one.
You may also have to give additional permission during installation of the new one.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You can see another HOSTS file tutorial here : http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm
and choose to download the MVPS HOSTS File instead of using the BlueTack HOSTS.
The BlueTack version (70k+ entries) is more aggressive than the mvps (11k + entries), and targets adware sites as well as more dangerous ones.

Good luck. If you have any further questions or issues, we will be here.

wckicker,
When you first posted, I didn't notice you were a freshman.
If you have any further posts about your own machine, use Room 06, not the Malware Removal room. This takes it out of public view.
Thanks
