Hey everyone,

I managed to get some bug on my box. I have run AVG, Ad-Aware, windows malicous malware removal tool and windows defender - they found little to nothing. I still got the same problem - when I click a link in IE it gets redirected to some other site. Also, IE turns on ramdomly and starts some video or sound bit without actually showing anything / window. I can see IE running in the task manager and kill it there. This all starts a few days ago after I visited an infected site - at first adobe would start running in the background and use up all my resources. For some reason that is now not happening and I've got this new redirect issue. Here is my HJT log HELP!!!

system info: XP sp3, dell laptop, IE 7 with all latest updates.

Any have some recommendations on how to help prevent malware in the future?

Thanks,

These are a few recommendations that can help you stay clean.

  1. Set correct settings for files that should be hidden in Windows XP
    • 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 checkHide 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

  2. Download and install the free version of WinPatrol. This program protects your computer in a variety of ways and will work well with your existing security software. Have a look at this tutorial to help you get started with the program. If you want to help the developer of the program and get more information about what the programs that you see in Winpatrol please check out Winpatrol Plus. It does not need a new download.

  3. If you are using Internet Explorer v. 7 please read and follow the recommendations at this site. http://surfthenetsafely.com/ieseczone8.htm
    I would wait a few more weeks with installing Internet Explorer 8 for a few more weeks just to be sure that there are no major problems cropping up with it. When installing it be sure to follow all the recomendations from Microsoft about what should be disabled during the install.

  4. 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 trouble with malware in the future.

  5. Update your Anti Virus Software - It is imperative that you update your Anti virus software at least a few times a week (Once a day or more is a very good idea). If you do not update your anti virus software it will not be able to catch new variants that come out.
  6. Use a Firewall (Hardware or Software) - 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 in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly. Windows Firewall on a computer running XP is not recommended.
    Be restrictive with granting access to the Internet. If you are unsure if the program really needs the access, test it by denying the access and see if this has any negative effects. If not, make the block permanent.

  7. Never run two Antivirus programs or two Software Firewalls at the same time. They can interfere with each other and cause problems.

  8. Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently or better yet set computer for automatic updates.

  9. Update all programs regularly - Make sure you update all programs regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released. The best way to keep updated is to download PSI Secunia from https://psi.secunia.com. It will help you keep your programs updated. Keep it updated. It is free for personal use.

  10. Read and follow the suggestions given at this web site by Miekiemoes http://users.telenet.be/bluepatchy/miek ... ntion.html that will give you more information on some of the points above.

  11. Use your best judgment when opening E-mails, following links, downloading programs, or surfing the web. If there is the slightest thing odd about something connected with any of those do not open, follow or download even if the sender is a friend. If it is a friend then ask if they really sent the information. They could be infected.

Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce.
