Hello everyone,

This is a desperate cry for help. It all started just by a popup and redirect window of filost.com but by now it has slowed my computer down significantly. I tried quite a few anit virus and anti spyware progs but nothing worked.
My HJT log is as follows. I would geratly appreciate any help.
Thanx,
ladamus

I would be glad to help you with your computer problems. :)

HijackThis logs take awhile to research. Please be patient with me. I know that you want your problems solved quicky, and I will work hard to help you.

Please observe these rules while we work:

If you can do those two things, everything should go smoothly

Thanks

Read this instructions carefully and feel free to ask if you're unsure about something

Next please run HijackThis, click Do A System Scan Only, and check the following:

  • Select the View Tab
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders
  • Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option

Hello again,
I am back. I performed the steps you wrote, though only the third file you mentioned was there, the other two I could not find. The computer is still slow, but this time the filost window did not come up. I do not really know what this means, as it does not come up always, just every second-third time.
Anyhow, here is the new HJT log:

Hi There :)

Download CCleaner from Here

Also you can get more info about the program from From Here

Download it to your desktop. Locate the setup file and install.

when installed run the program, which will clean out any rubbish, to see if that helps with your computer speed.

While you are doing that i will go over your second log and report back shortly.

Hello again,

I ran CCleaner. It took quite a long time. It did speed my computer up a bit. Not too much though. Having done this, do I need to post a new HJT log or is the old one still sufficient?
Best regards,
ladamus

Hi & thanks for your kind word about the doggy, she is getting on abit and will like the compliment. :D

This is my normal post for when you are clear - which you now are - or seem to be. Please advise of any problems you still have :-

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:



Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:

From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on 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 Initialise 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

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.

Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.

The following are recommended third party programs that are designed to keep your computer clean. A link as well as a brief description is included with each item.

Download Adaware

Adaware is a free program. It scans for known spyware on your computer. These scans should be run at least once every two weeks. For more information, see this

The program is available for download here

Download Spybot

Spybot is a scanner like adaware. It scans for spyware and other malicious programs. It is important to have both Adaware and Spybot on your computer because each program provides unique detection and pretection measures. Spybot has preventitive tools that stop programs from even installing on your computer.
To see how to set this up as well as more spybot features, see here

Spybot can be downloaded from here

Download SpywareBlaster

Spyware blaster is a program that stops known malicious activex controls from installing on your computer. It works by changing settings in your registry. It makes "kill bits" in the registry, so that certain activex controls can't install.
If you don't know what activex controls are, see here

You can download SpywareBlaster here

Download iespyad

It puts many bad webpages on your restricted zones list. This means that you can still view the "bad" webpages, but the webpages cannot do certain things (such as use javascripts and cookies).
If you need help understanding how it works, there is a tutorial here

Download it from here

hosts file:

o Every version of windows has a hosts file as part of them.
o In a very basic sense, they are used to locate webpages.
o We can customize a hosts file so that it blocks certain webpages.
o However, it can slow down certain computers.
o This is why using a hosts file is optional!!

Download it here. Make sure you read the instructions on how to install the hosts file. There is a good tutorial here

If you decide to download the hosts file, the slowdown problems can usually be avoided by following these steps:

Click the start button (at the lower left hand corner of your screen)
Click run
In the dialog box, type services.msc
hit enter, then locate dns client
Highlight it, then double-click it.
On the dropdown box, change the setting from automatic to manual.
Click ok

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 its default configuration can lower your risk greatly. For an article on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below

Software Firewalls

Use an Anti Virus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future. See this link for a listing of some on line & their stand-alone anti virus programs:

Antivirus Software

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.

Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit Windows Update Site 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.

Also keep your malware scanning software up to date against the latest nasties
