Hello. I was not having an issue with the boot up process but rather after bootup and after login the computer seemed to be loading some programs. I followed your suggestions anyway and I am sending the required logs. I do not any items in my system tray anymore, not that that's a problem. Here are the logs...

Hello!

Could you please post me a new Hijackthis Log.
Did you fix other lines with Hijackthis?
Did you reboot after running OTMoveIt?

Hi. As I read back your instructions, I believe I was over zealous and did not follow directions correctly and I ended up selecting all lines instead of the 1 line you suggested. Yes I did run OTMoveit and then reboot. After almost finishing the rebooting process, the OTMoveit run screen popped up looking for me to select run again and I canceled. Sorry about screwing up. Here is the new HijackThis log...

Hello!

I thought something terrible has happened. :) We have made backups so lets try restore the entries.

HijackThis

  • Open HiJackThis
  • Click on the View list of Backups
  • Tick all but this entry: O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SpyHunter] C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_06\bin\jusched.exe
  • Click restore
  • Close HijackThis
  • Reboot

How is your computer running?
Post a new Hijackthis log for me to see

Your log now appears to be clean. Congratulations!

You can get rid of the tools we used:
  • RSIT and folder C:/rsit (You can just delete the exe file from your desktop)
  • ERUNT (You can uninstall it from Add/Remove Programs)

Clean up with OTMoveIt3

  • Double-click OTMoveIt3.exe to start the program.
  • Close all other programs apart from OTMoveIt3 as this step will require a reboot
  • On the OTMoveIt main screen, press the CleanUp! button
  • Say Yes to the prompt and then allow the program to reboot your computer.

Please take the time to tell us what you would like to be done about the people who are behind all the problems you have had. We can only get something done about this if the people that we help, like you, are prepared to complain. We have a dedicated forum for collecting these complaints Malware Complaints. You need to be registered to post as, unfortunately, we were hit with too many spam posts to allow guest posting to continue. Just find your country room and register your complaint.

    General Security and Computer Health
    Below are some steps to follow in order to dramatically lower the chances of reinfection. You may have already implemented some of the steps below, however you should follow any steps that you have not already implemented.

    • Clear Infected System Restore Points
      • Turn System Restore off
      • On the Desktop, right click on the My Computer icon.
      • Click Properties.
      • Click the System Restore tab.
      • Check Turn off System Restore.
      • Click Apply, and then click OK.
        Restart your computer
      • Turn System Restore on
      • On the Desktop, right click on the My Computer icon.
      • Click Properties.
      • Click the System Restore tab.
      • Uncheck *Turn off System Restore*.
      • Click Apply, and then click OK.
      Note: only do this once,and not on a regular basis
    • Set correct settings for files
      • Click Start > My Computer > Tools menu (at top of page) > Folder Options > View tab.
      • Under Hidden files and folders if necessary select Do not show hidden files and folders.
      • If unchecked please check Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)
      • If necessary check Display content of system folders
      • If necessary Uncheck Hide file extensions for known file types.
      • Click OK
    • Make sure that you keep your antivirus updated
      New viruses come out every minute, so it is essential that you have the latest signatures for your antivirus program to provide you with the best possible protection from malicious software.
      NOTE: You should only have one antivirus installed at a time. Having more than one antivirus program installed at once is likely to cause conflicts and may well decrease your overall protection as well as impairing the performance of your PC.
    • Security Updates for Windows, Internet Explorer & Microsoft Office
      Whenever a security problem in its software is found, Microsoft will usually create a patch so that after the patch is installed, attackers can't use the vulnerability to install malicious software on your PC. Keeping up with these patches will help to prevent malicious software being installed on your PC. Ensure you are registered for Windows updates via Start > right-click on My Computer > Properties > Automatic Updates tab or visit the Microsoft Update site on a regular basis.
      NOTE: The update process uses ActiveX, so you will need to use internet explorer for it and allow the ActiveX control to install.
    • Update Non-Microsoft Programs
      Microsoft isn't the only company whose products can contain security vulnerabilities. To check whether other programs running on your PC are in need of an update, you can use the Secunia Software Inspector or
      F-secure Health Check. I suggest that you run one of them at least once a month.
    • Make Internet Explorer More Secure
      You are using Internet Explorer v. 7. Therefore please read and follow the recommendations at this SITE


    Recommended Programs

    I would recommend the download and installation of some or all of the following programs (if not already present), and the updating of them on a regular basis.

    • WinPatrol
      As a robust security monitor, WinPatrol will alert you to hijackings, malware attacks and critical changes made to your computer without your permission. WinPatrol takes snapshot of your critical system resources and alerts you to any changes that may occur without your knowledge. For more information, please visit HERE.
    • SpywareBlaster
