Hi Dick Aten,

You haven't posted the full HJT log as NonSuch requested.
What problems are you having ?

Thanks for the response; thought I'd got it all.

Meanwhile, had an IT guy go over it & judge it not comprimised. But where do I find guidelines for self-evaluation of the list other that to check for known, safe name in the path string?

Without spending 6-12 months training at an AntiMalware school like this one, there is not really any other way.

And to be honest, just because the safe file name is in the safe path string doesn't always mean there is no infection.

Self evaluation of HJT logs is not really recommended.

Many thanks Katana; at least that's off my mind. Dick
