HJT log- win98

Unread postby dutch » August 9th, 2005, 11:45 pm

I've been having some problems connecting to the internet. Internet connection settings keep changing to a proxy connection. I have started using a newer Avant browser. I don't use people pc anymore. My log:

Did you run the HJT scan in safe mode? If you did, please run one while in normal mode and post us a fresh log.

As you don't use People PC anymore, please open up HiJackthis again then run a scan, and put a check next to the following line:
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://home.peoplepc.com/search
Then click on fix

Other than that, your log is clean. I believe your proxy problem lies with Slipstream internet accelerator, please follow these instructions to remove it from your computer.

To make sure you stay clean, please follow these instructions:
  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:

    1. From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    2. Click once on the Security tab
    3. Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    4. Click once on the Custom Level button.

      1. Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
      2. Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
      3. Change the Initialise and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
      4. Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
      5. Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
      6. Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
      7. When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
      8. If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    5. Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  • Update your Anti Virus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Anti virus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your anti virus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.
  • Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is susceptible to being hacked and taken over. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly. For an article on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:
    Computer Safety On line - Software Firewalls
  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.
  • Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. You should also scan your computer with the program on a regular basis just as you would an anti virus software in conjunction with Spybot. A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:
    Instructions for - Spybot S & D and Ad-aware
  • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs. A article on anti-malware products with links for this program and others can be found here:
    Computer Safety on line - Anti-Malware
  • Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

Wilt- thanks for the help & info. I use most of the proceedures you listed, except for the firewall. But, I didn't think that a firewall was as important if you are on a dial-up connection. No problems so far - unless I've just been lucky. Any free firewalls out there that work good?

Yes, a firewall is very important even if you are on dialup. Zone Alarm is a good free firewall, I use it. :)

I'll give it a try. One other thing - what is the R1 hjt entry for proxy server=http 127...? This wasn't on previous logs. Seems like it appeared after I ran microsoft updates a few weeks ago.

That's just the Slipstream proxy, it's BHO may have put that proxy back when you opened ie for the updates. It should go if you uninstall slipstream.
