Hi

Did you (or your grandpa) purposely set the following Desktop components yourself?
(Active Desktop Components are local or remote html files that are embedded directly onto your desktop as a background)

O24 - Desktop Component 1: (no name) - http://www.diyzone.net/images2/room2441ui5.jpg
O24 - Desktop Component 2: (no name) - http://www.diyzone.net/images2/room2464cl0.jpg
O24 - Desktop Component 3: (no name) - http://www.audioreview.com/channels/aud ... 126027.jpg
O24 - Desktop Component 4: (no name) - http://pics1.blog.yam.com/2/userfile/h/ ... 135e85.jpg
O24 - Desktop Component 5: (no name) - http://www.diyzone.net/images2/room2462av1.jpg

low on disk space

System drive C: has 1 GB (4%) free of 29 GB

The partition with the system needs at least 15% Free Space, or it will bog down and run very slowly.

Please try to uninstall some software you do not need and/or move any documents/files/pictures etc to a form of removable media. (CD, DVD, USB flash drive etc)

  • Go to Start, My Computer
  • Right-click on the hard-drive letter for the system, (usually C: )
  • Click Properties
  • Under the General tab Uncheck the box labeled "Allow Indexing Service to index this disk for fast file searching"
  • Click Apply
  • If it asks whether to apply to all files and folders, answer Yes.
  • You may have to wait while it resets the file attributes.
  • Click OK

Reboot the machine.


RegQuery

Please download RegQuery by Noviciate to your desktop

  • Copy the following registry keypath by highlighting the text and pressing CTRL and C at the same time
      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\URLSearchHooks
  • Double click RegQuery.exe to run the program
  • Paste the text you have copied using CRTL and V, into the textbox
  • Click the Query button
  • A Notepad file will open. Please paste the contents in your next reply
  • You may now close the RegQuery program

I seem to be getting an error message each time i paste the text into the run box and I can't really tell you what the exact message is because most of it is in cantonese and i cannot read it. Also, I am also going back to school for the fall and i will not be able to work on this computer until probably two weekends later when i do come back. Please let me know if there is anything crucial that i have to fix and i will get back to you ASAP but if the computer seems to be fine then there is no need to continue helping me on it. Thank you for taking your time to fix the issues with this computer but unfortunately I cannot proceed any further.

Hi saladfork

I can appreciate you are running out of time, however I would have preferred one more run of RSIT before I could say for sure you are clean even if you aren't experiencing any other issues you think may be malware related. Your previous RSIT scan did look okay though.

So although I can't officially declare you all clean, please follow the advice below:

In addition to my previous advice on freeing up some Hard Drive space, please have a read of the following article.

http://www.malwareremoval.com/tutorials ... slowly.php


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 on all drives.
      • Click Apply
      • Click each drive in turn where system restore is not required and click Settings
        Note: System restore is only needed on drives with an operating system installed
      • For each drive without an operating system, check Turn off system restore on this drive, click Yes then click OK.
      Note: only do this once, and not on a regular basis

    • 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.
      Uninstall Tools for Major Antivirus Products

    • Install and use a firewall with outbound protection
      The Windows firewall only monitors incoming traffic, NOT outgoing. Using a software firewall in its default configuration to replace the Windows firewall greatly reduces the risk of your computer being hacked. Make sure your firewall is always enabled while your computer is connected to the internet.
      Note: You should only have one firewall installed at a time. Having more than one firewall installed at once is likely to cause conflicts and may well decrease your overall protection as well as seriously impairing the performance of your PC.
      Suggestions:

      [Please note that trial pay is not needed to get any product for free.]

    • 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 - I suggest that you run it at least once a month.
    • Make Internet Explorer More Secure
      Internet Explorer 8 <<< Recommended Version
      For older versions please read and follow the recommendations at this site
      Internet Explorer7
      Internet Explorer6


    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.
    • Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
      As you already have Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware on board I would keep it regularly updated and run regular quick scans with it. (TIP: Cleaning out temp files can reduce scanning times.)
      You can find a tutorial HERE.
    • Hosts File
      For added protection you may also like to add a host file. A simple explanation of what a Hosts file does is HERE and for more information regarding host files read HERE.


Finally I am trying to make one point very clear. It is absolutely essential to keep all of your security programs up to date.

Also please read this great article by Tony Klein So How Did I Get Infected In First Place

I'd be grateful if you could reply to this post so that I know you have read it and, if you've no other questions, the thread can be closed.

Happy surfing!
