I have included the Hijack This and the Ewido Logs.

I still get messages that an unknown process is trying to modify my system files and make changes in the registry....

These aren't bad, but not needed at startup and are resource hogs that call home.
It could be one of these that are trying to make the changes.


Run hijackthis. Hit None of the above, Click Do a System Scan Only. Put a Check in the box on the left side on these:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [PCMService] "C:\Program Files\Dell\Media Experience\PCMService.exe"
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" -osboot


Close ALL windows and browsers except HijackThis and click "Fix checked"


Empty Recycle Bin

Reboot and "copy/paste" a new log file into this thread.
Also please describe how your computer behaves at the moment.

Be sure to get SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard.

After doing the below, let me know if you still get redirected.

Note: This will remove all previous Restore Points

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.

Restart your computer, turn it back on.

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

Click Start> My Computer, select the Tools menu and then Folder Options, after the new window appears select the View tab…]
This time select the: Restore Defaults
Select: Apply, and click OK




If you dont have these three programs I would recommend that you get them. [color=red]Spywareblaster[/color], [color=red]Spywareguard[/color] and [color=red]IESPY AD[/color]. They will add 1000's of sites to your resticted zone and block some hijacks from happening. I also have a FREE FIREWALL and FREE ANTI VIRUS if you need one.

It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system.

Keep your system up to date and run Adaware & Spybot, once a week works, and hopefully you will be ok from here on. Both are available below.

Safe Surfing. :D

Questions about SpyBlaster

Unread postby Zehavi » July 22nd, 2005, 12:58 am

I downloaded Spyblaster and enabled all protection and I see in my registry that in P3P History and in Internet Settings, Zone Map, Domains that I have about 1500 new entries of all kinds of dialers, ads, spyware (180-solutions, CoolWeb Search) and porno sites... Did SpyBlaster put them there? If so, why?

Since we lat spoke, I notice that I can no longer right click on any file and delete or change it in any way. When I right click, the computer freezes until I reboot.

Thanks,

Zehavi
