From add/remove programs uninstall

Java(TM) 6 Update 7

it's outdated and replaced by update 11 (you already have it ) ;)


_____________________________
Task Manager
I would like you to open the task manager by pressing simeltaniously
Ctrl+Shift+Esc or cntrl /alt/delete
then go to the processes tab and end the following if present:
by: right clicking on and choosing end process.

avgrsx.exe







___________________________________
Search for and remove
Now I want you to search for and delete the following folder and all it's contents if present. If you need help finding them.
Click start /search/ all files and folders/ look for More advanced options. once in there select the first 3 boxes.
Please just remove the files/folders I listed in BOLD

C:\Program Files\AVG








____________________________
Open Notepad, copy and paste the following text (in bold) into the new Notepad window.


sc stop avg8wd
sc delete avg8wd
sc stop avg8emc
sc delete avg8emc




Save it to your Desktop, as type "all files", as fixservice.bat


It should now look like this icon now.
Image
Now double click this file, won't see much happen.
A quick flash is about all.
Then you may delete the file we just made.

Everything else worked apart from deleting AVG in Program Files. It comes up with the error:

Cannot Delete avgapix: Access is Denied.

Once this has worked I will post a new HJT file.

  • Copy the file paths below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose Copy):


    :Files
    c:\program Files\avg




  • Return to OTMoveIt3, right click in the "Paste List of Files/Folders to be Moved" window (under the light yellow bar) and choose Paste.

When I like double click the COMODO icon, down in the bottom right hand corner.

It says 'The FireWall has blocked 'X' intrusion attempt(s) made so far.

I click on the number (X). And it comes up with a lot of them, I am not sure what they are and am a bit concerned about them, here is a screenshot:

Those two things, System, and Bonjour are the only two there.

You'll notice that both the destination and the source are the same for this IP.
192.168.1.102 It's my guess that your not alone on your router. Another PC hooked to it ? Ip addresses starting like what I have in bold are your own address.
The 101 and 102 corrospond to other computers on the network.


This number
212.159.6.10
leads to
PLUSNET-CORE-SERVERS
PlusNet Technologies.

The Program Bonjour is trying to contact that site.

Bonjour service.

Usually installed without your knowing it. Has to do with I-tunes.
If you don't use this program uninstall it through add/remove programs.
You don't need it to have I tunes installed.


Removing Bonjour
If you decide to remove it do the following:




1. Go to Start > Run > COPY the context in the box below exactly Including the quotes.
"%PROGRAMFILES%\Bonjour\mDNSResponder.exe" -remove



_____________________________
Task Manager
I would like you to open the task manager by pressing simeltaniously
Ctrl+Shift+Esc or cntrl /alt/delete
then go to the processes tab and end the following if present:
by: right clicking on and choosing end process.

mDNSResponder.exe



“%PROGRAMFILES%\Bonjour\mDNSResponder.exe” -remove



2. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Bonjour
3. Rename the mdnsNSP.dll file in that folder to mdnsNSP.old
4. Restart your computer
5. Delete the Program Files\Bonjour folder



You can see now how the software firewall let's you know when a program is trying to contact the internet.
This way you know what's going on. Without this firewall all this was going on without your knowing it.

When this happens just goolge the Ip addresses and see where they lead too. Also the program that's trying to use the internet is a good clue to weather it's good or bad.





______________________________
RUN HJT (Just a few orphaned entries left.)

HJT
Run hijackthis and choose scan only and place a check by the following lines if present.
Close all other windows and browsers except HJT before clicking on Fix Checked

Fix this one if you decide to uninstall Bonjour.

Close that.

    * If you are prompted to Reboot during the cleanup, select Yes [/b]






___________________________________

Right click My Computer
Then Propeties then system restore
Place a check mark by turn off system restore
Click APPLY
Windows will give you a warning click yes
REBOOT

Now go right back to the same place and unchecksystem restore
Click APPLYand OK




A few things to help with possible threats

These are optional . But will help protect you further.
and
Some of these you may already have.





_______________________________________
So many people are point and click crazy either because there naive or their in a rush.

Always watch closely to any software your installing.
If they want to install something more than their program stop right there and investigate what it is they want to place on your computer.
If they give you the option not to install it choose that until you investigate it completely.
The more you install that you don't want or need the more you'll wish you didn't.


________________________________________
Windows Updates
Be certain automatic updates is turned on for XP. - For Vista Or if you like to do it manually be sure to visit http://update.microsoft.com/ regularly. This requires internet explorer to do so.

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.
___________________________________

SpywareBlaster

Install SpywareBlaster

After the installation, click Download Latest Protection Updates. When it finishes, click Enable All Protection.





___________________________________
Download and Install a HOSTS File
A Hosts file is a plain text file which prevents your computer from connecting to malware and spyware sites by redirecting the connection request to 127.0.0.1, which is your local address. If you use a proxy server, or if you are on AOL, be sure to read the special instructions.
You can download the MVPS Hosts File and see a HOSTS file tutorial here :
This website also contains useful tips, and links to other resources and utilities.


___________________________________

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

Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls 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.

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


Here's a site with great advise on how to AVOID malware. Much easier to do than removing it.

Thank you very much! I have done everything you just said. My computer seems to be running great. :)

With the HOSTS file, was I just supposed to extract it to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\Etc?

Thanks again, I am very grateful. :)

Look at the read me file in the zipped file.

[Install Instructions using the included Installer (98/ME/XP)]

You may use the included batch file "mvps.bat" to copy the included HOSTS file to the proper
location on your machine. This batch file will backup the existing HOSTS file prior to copying
the updated version. The backed-up file will be renamed to HOSTS.MVP.

or

Download HostsXpert and unzip it to your computer, somewhere where you can find it.
  • Run HostsXpert
  • If Hosts file is Read Only, click on Make Writeable, otherwise move on to next stage.
  • Click Download button.
  • Click MVPs Hosts
  • Click Merge File
  • Press OK to download latest MVPs update and merge it with your Hosts.
  • When finished click File Handling
  • Click Make Read Only to secure your Hosts file.
  • Exit HostsXpert.
