hi guys! had a look around the site and decided to join up, see if you brainboxes may have an idea of how to help me?

i've always been fairly comfortable using HJT, but this one has me stumped.

every reboot, it seems like i have a lot of programmes starting up! ( i don't). CPU use rockets up to 100 and stays there with various names taking the blame. windows hang half open, network freezing etc...

svchost pops up a lot and regardless how many times i try to end the process it starts again.

using the ADS scan i found quite a few Symantec threads running, even though only ever had Norton Ghost installed and got rid of that a while ago. After stopping these the laptop seemed to run fine but the next day it was back to the same.

I've tried various malware scans and boot-scans but no luck.

any help would be much appreciated peeps!

Hi davidward8668,
HJT 2.0.2 doesn't work correctly with the latest Windows systems. Updating it here.
------------------------------------------------
Remove Programs Using Control Panel
(You didn't post an Installed programs list, so I'm guessing a bit)
From Start, Control Panel, click on Uninstall a program under the Programs heading.
Right click each Entry, as follows, one by one, if it exists, choose Uninstall/Change, and give permission to Continue:

Spybot - Search & Destroy
Ad-Aware
Avira Antivir
Super Anti-Spyware
HiJackThis

Take extra care in answering questions posed by any Uninstaller.
If the Spybot Uninstaller asks whether you want to remove all files and settings, answer YES. If it reports that it cannot remove all files, that's OK.
---------------------------------------------
Symantec did not remove everything as it should. This is a common problem.
To completely remove Norton Antivirus, Download and Run the Norton Removal Tool for your version of Windows and the Symantec product you had..
http://www.symantec.com/norton/support/kb/web_view.jsp?wv_type=public_web&docurl=20080710133834EN&ln=en_US
Perform the DownLoad for your version of Windows and Norton Ghost (download to your desktop as it says).
On your desktop, click on Norton Removal Tool and follow the instructions.
(You don't really need to save the Install Key)
If you have ever had Norton AntiVirus or Norton 360 on the machine, repeat the process with the removal tool for that product.
----------------------------------------------
Download and Run Temp File Cleaner (TFC.exe)
Download Temp File Cleaner and save it to your desktop.
Right click and Run as Administrator.
If you have a lot of junk files to remove, it could take a while, so please be patient and let it finish.
When it's done, if it asks to Reboot, choose to do so. This will remove files that could not be removed while Windows was running.
After Restart, log back in to your usual account.
-----------------------------------------------
Download and Install HiJackThis
The Downloads for HiJackThis 2.0.4 are here: http://free.antivirus.com/hijackthis/
  • Choose the Installer version and save to your Desktop. It will be named HiJackThis.msi.
  • Right click and choose "Run as administrator") to install it.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
  • Click on Install.
  • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
  • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and a text log file will open in notepad.
  • Make sure Notepad's Format Menu has Word Wrap Unchecked.
  • Copy/Paste the entire log to your next reply please.
  • No matter what it says in the QuickStart Guide or elsewhere...
    DON'T USE the "ANALYZE THIS" button. Its Findings can be Dangerous for your machine.
  • Please Do Not have HiJackThis "fix" anything yet.
    Most of the log lines are legitimate entries, necessary for the operation of your computer.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Retrieve the List of Installed programs Using HJT
Open HijackThis, click Open The Misc Tools Section. Then scroll down the list if you need to, click Open Uninstall Manager and Save List...
The List of installed programs will automatically be saved as uninstall_list.txt in your HiJackThis folder.
In addition, the list opens in Notepad so you can also save as another name in another location if you wish.
Please paste the contents into your next reply.

So we will be looking for a fresh HJT log and a copy of the "Uninstall" list.

davidward8668,
Did you do the instructions in a different sequence?
Ad-aware and Spybot's Teatimer still show in the HJT log, and HJT 2.0.2 still shows in the programs.
-----------------------------------------------
Please Note Our Policy on the Use of P2P (Person to Person / Peer to Peer) file sharing programs
It is posted here: http://malwareremoval.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=491394#p491394
As a condition of receiving our help, I have included the P2P program Vuze in the removal instructions below, so we are not wasting our time.
If you have used this, you can be fairly confident this is a principal reason your computer is infected

It's really important, if you value your PC at all, to stay away from P2P file sharing programs, like utorrent, Bittorrent, Azureus, Limewire, Vuze, Shareaza, Bitlord.
Criminals have "planted" thousands upon thousands of infections in the "free" shared files. Some of the recent infections can turn your machine into a doorstop.
------------------------------------------------
Remove Programs Using Control Panel
From Start, Control Panel, click on Uninstall a program under the Programs heading.
Right click each Entry, as follows, one by one, if it exists, choose Uninstall/Change, and give permission to Continue:
Vuze
Take extra care in answering questions posed by any Uninstaller.
-----------------------------------------------------------
REBOOT (RESTART) Your Machine
-----------------------------------------------------------
Post a New HiJackThis Log
Start HijackThis (double-click in XP, or right-click and "Run as administrator" in Vista/Win7)
Click Do System Scan and Save a Log File.
When the Scan is complete, select the whole log (Ctrl +A), copy (Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the log contents into a reply.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Retrieve the List of Installed programs Using HJT
Open HijackThis, click Open The Misc Tools Section. Then scroll down the list if you need to, click Open Uninstall Manager and Save List...
The List of installed programs will automatically be saved as uninstall_list.txt in your HiJackThis folder.
In addition, the list opens in Notepad so you can also save as another name in another location if you wish.
Please paste the contents into your next reply.

Be sure NOT to use Glary Utilities for Optimizing your registry. All Registry cleaners are dangerous, and should be avoided.

Thanks again Askey, didn't realise i'd missed them! just a quick question on registry cleaners, is there any safer alternative you'd recommend? Just for removing orphaned entries etc?

Not sure why Teatimer was still running but the files are deleted now and it seems to have stopped.

You have no antivirus installed on the machine. That will get your machine infected easily.
Download Antivir Free
Download AntiVir Free from here : http://www.softpedia.com/get/Antivirus/AntiVir-Personal-Edition.shtml
Save the Installer to your desktop.
-----------------------------------------------
Run, Update, Scan with Antivir
Double Click the Avira Antivir Installer on your desktop (Right click and choose "Run as administrator" in Vista/Win7), Install the program, Have it update itself, and run a full scan.
-----------------------------------------------
Get Last Avira Report
Right click the red umbrella icon in the system tray and click Start Antivir
In the left pane, click Overview, then click Reports
There wil be reports titled Update and reports titled Scan. Find the most recent report in the list titled Scan
Click on the Report File button, or Right click the report and choose Display Report.
The report contents will come up in Notepad. Highlight the entire report (Ctrl+A) and copy to the clipboard (Ctrl+C).
Paste the contents (Ctrl+V) into your next reply.

Due to Lack of Response, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
