Unidentified Virus Trying to Access my E-mail

Unread postby carolus » August 9th, 2008, 8:05 pm

Symptoms: after visiting a website, my computer shut down. When I turned it on again, I got a message informing me that Outlook needed me to open it and select it as the default mail server to perform the tasks I had given it. Fortunately, since I do not and have never used Outlook, or any other e-mail program, I believe that the computer has failed to carry out the commands of whatever malware it has contracted. Nonetheless, this message asking me to configure Outlook now pops up every now and again. I have also noticed that my computer is taking a longer time than previously to load and log in to Windows. I would like to remove the malware because I do not know what else it could be doing and am concerned.

I am running Windows XP Pro. Based on skimming these forums, I have run Ewido, which identified a bunch of pernicious cookies, but has not fixed the problem. I have scanned my Task Manager and used Process Explorer, but saw nothing obviously malware.

Here is my HijackThis log.
