Thanks again Wingman, the Re-Format went well and I have a clean install of Windows XP. I can't thank you enough for your help. It has been much appreciated.

Hello owen4president,
That's great news! Here are some recommendations for keeping your computer more secure, in the future. You don't have to install all the programs referenced... you choose which makes the most sense for your situation.

Update your Antivirus programs and other programs regularly.
Secunia Personal Software Inspector - Copyright © Secunia. F-secure Health Check - Copyright © F-Secure Corporation.

Visit Microsoft often
Keep on top of critical updates, as well as other updates for your computer.
How to configure and use Automatic Updates in Windows XP
Using Windows Update for Windows XP
Microsoft Update Home

Install additional (free) programs, that can help improve security.
Many feel that having a "layered" protection scheme is beneficial, you'll have to decide what works best for your situation.
Here are a few you can look into, if you want. :)

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
Download it from Malewarebytes © Malwarebytes Corporation.
Tutorials are available for installing and running, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.
Powerful, easy to use and free. For real-time protection you will have to purchase the product.

SpywareBlaster
Download it from © Javacool Software LLC.
A SpywareBlaster knowledgebase can be found Here.

WinPatrol
Download it from Copyright © BillP Studios
Information about how WinPatrol works, is available Here.
(The free version of WinPatrol... provides limited real-time protection)

Firetrust SiteHound
Software may not be available as it is being rewritten... if so, bookmark site and check again later.
You can find information and download it from © Firetrust Ltd

3rd Party Firewall
As the term conveys, a firewall is an extra layer of security installed onto computers, which restricts access from the outside world.
Firewalls protect against hackers and malicious intruders.
If you do not have a firewall installed...
I strongly recommend you download a free (for personal use) firewall NOW that monitors traffic in
both directions... from one of these excellent vendors:
  1. Comodo (Is now bundled with AV software, toolbar and search provider. Opt to install only the firewall software... uncheck the rest)
  2. Online Armor Free (Free version at bottom of page (XP/Vista/W7 (32bit).) 64bit version not available yet. Some reported conflicts with Avira AntiVir.
  3. ZoneAlarm (uncheck ZoneAlarm Spy Blocker during installation if you choose this one)
  4. Ashampoo
If you are using the built-in Windows XP firewall, it is not recommended as it does not block outgoing connections. This means that any malware on your computer is free to "phone home" for more instructions. Simply put, Windows XP contains a very basic firewall. This (XP) firewall is NO replacement for a dedicated software solution. Remember to install and have active, only one firewall at the same time. If you install one of these firewalls, remember to turn off Windows' firewall.


Read, stay informed.

Please let me know that you reviewed this post. Once I receive your reply, unless there are other malware questions or concerns, I will have this topic closed as resolved.

Stay Safe! ;)
