Unread postby Curious » April 21st, 2008, 3:58 pm

I'm running Vista on my PC and things are very delayed. My roommate was being suspicious around my computer and I'm wondering if she got picked up something or put something on it. I'd appreciate any help you could give, even if it is just to tell me the problem must be this awful Vista. :flower:

Hi Curious,

Your log looks clean but we'll have a deeper look.


Step 1:
Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system.
Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components.
  • Close any programs you may have running, ESPECIALLY your web browser
  • Click Start > Control Panel > double-click on Programs and Features
  • 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 installed versions of Java.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
Then download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment(JRE) and install it to your computer.



Step 2:
Please download ATF cleaner
Make sure that all browser windows are closed.
    Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
    Under Main choose: Select All
    Deselect Cookies
    Click the Empty Selected button.
    You can select cookies but you will have to re enter your login details to websites you frequent.
If you use Firefox browser
    Click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
    Deselect Firefox Cookies
    Click the Empty Selected button.
    NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
If you use Opera browser
    Click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
    Deselect Opera Cookies
    Click the Empty Selected button.
    NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.


Step 3:
Run Internet Explorer by right clicking on it and clicking Run as Administrator
Go to http://www.kaspersky.com/kos/eng/partner/default/kavwebscan.html and click the Accept button at the end of the page.

Note for Internet Explorer 7 users: If at any time you have trouble with the accept button of the licence, click on the Zoom tool located at the right bottom of the IE window and set the zoom to 75 %. Once the license accepted, reset to 100%.
  • Read the Requirements and limitations before you click Accept.
  • Allow the ActiveX download if necessary.
  • Once the database has downloaded, click Next.
  • Click Scan Settings and change the "Scan using the following antivirus database" from standard to extended and then click OK.
  • Click on "My Computer" and then put the kettle on!
  • When the scan has completed, click Save Report As...
  • Enter a name for the file in the Filename: text box and then click the down arrow to the right of Save as type: and select text file (*.txt)
  • Click Save - by default the file will be saved to your Desktop, but you can change this if you wish.
Copy and paste the report into your next reply along with a fresh HJT log and a description of how your PC is behaving.

Due to lack of response this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
