Let's do some cleanup, and fix a strange entry under winlogon. Dunno if it is bad or if a program did bork it. I didn't want to fix it earlier because of the disabled registry tools.

Copy/paste the following text into a new Notepad document. Make sure that you have one blank line at the end of the document as shown in the quoted text.

REGEDIT4

  • IE-SPYAD
    IE-SPYAD puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone, so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all. It basically prevents any downloads, cookies, scripts from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
    You can download IE-SPYAD here
    A tutorial can be found here
  • Hosts File
    A Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well known ad, spyware sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer.
    A tutorial tutorial can be found here
    • MVPS Hosts File
      You can download the MVPS Hosts File here
      Furthermore the website contains useful tips and links to other resources and utilities.

WinPatrol FAQ

SiteHound by Firetrust

Firetrust introduces the SiteHound Toolbar - the safe way to browse the Internet. With SiteHound, when you browse the Internet, you're shown a warning page every time you go to a site which is a known scam, potentially loads viruses or spyware on to your computer, has questionable content or anything you would not consider reasonable. You are shown a warning page with information about that site. From there you can choose to enter the site or go back. SiteHound is a free add-on to Internet Explorer. (Users of Firefox - a version for you is coming soon.) SiteHound's comprehensive database gathers the knowledge from other users and respected experts from the online security community to tell you which sites are real and which are bogus.

SiteHound will alert you when you enter a site which is known to contain:
  • Fraudulent claims or scams
  • Offensive material
  • Security vulnerabilities
  • Spyware or Adware
  • Spam related material
  • or other content deemed to be unsafe
Specifically, SiteHound blocks these categories:

• Adult • Spyware • Spam Advertising • Phishing • Possible scam or fraud • Misleading or False Advertising
• Pharming • Rogue or Suspect Product • Adware • Malware or Virus

System Requirements:
Internet Explorer 5.5+ and Windows 95/98/NT 4/ME/2000/XP

Product Info & Download: SiteHound Toolbar

Use an AntiVirus Software

It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future. See the link below for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs.
Computer Safety On line - Anti-Virus
http://www.malwareremoval.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=53#53

Update your Anti Virus Software

It is imperative that you update your Anti virus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your anti virus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

Use a Firewall

I can not stress enough 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. For an article on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below.
Computer Safety On line - Software Firewalls
http://www.malwareremoval.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=56#56
A tutorial on Understanding and Using Firewalls can be found here

Additional Information

For more information about Spyware, the tools available, and other informative material, including information on how you may have been infected in the first place, please check out this link.

A very nice collection of tutorials is available at Bleeping Computer
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/

Finally, after following up on all these recommendations, why not run Jason Levine's Browser Security Tests ?
They will provide you with an insight on how vulnerable you might still be to a number of common exploits.

If possible I would like to have a little bit of information about some files present on your computer. Is your computer a Packard Bell and does it have a restore partition ?

I'm refering to the following folders :
D:\MININT\SYSTEM32\
D:\OSONLY\RESTORE\

Thanks :)

You're welcome, glad we could help. :)

my computer is a packard bell yes and it does have both of those folders indeed. why is that?

It's because Kaspersky did flag some files as NetTool.Win32.PsKill in those folders, I'll contact Kasperky about it because it would be dangerous if people started to delete files in recovery partitions / folders. It seems to be related to PSTools. While searching for info on those files, Nellie2 did point out that A-squared made the same detection and the user did have a Packard Bell. That's why I did ask you about it. So ignore the Kaspersky detection and never erase the files below. Scanners often detect files because they may be dangerous (process.exe which is used in the smitrem fix is flagged too) but it does not always mean that they are bad if used by legitimate programs.

Just an update on the detection of pskill.exe so that you are not worried about those files.

Packard Bell has a program called Smart Restore. It comes shipped with the free pskill.exe (used to kill processes) from Sysinternals

Restore.ins is a part of Smart Restore too.

Smart Restore
program to reinstall the faulty software or hardware. Smart Restore lets you reinstall software without deleting any files.

Without deleting any files ... that could explain the presence of pskill.exe, if a file is in use, the will kill the process to replace it.

Be very carefull when your anti-virus scans your computer, Mc-Afee does list this program too and it would be a disaster if the anti-virus deletes automatically those files.

oh right i see, i did wonder why there were still files in the list even after you said my logs were clean, i guess that explains it. i am going to sort out getting a decent antivirus because i've used so many free download programs that just don't seem to do the job very well. although i'm definately not going to get Norton 'cos i had serious problems with that after the free one year trial period ran out.

anyway, i'm sure you don't want to hear about that!

thanks again for all the help and follow up information. it is definatly going to help make my pc run more smoothly!

Yes the remaining files in Kaspersky should not be deleted by any program. If you set up an antivirus, make sure that it is set to prompt if you can't create an exclusion list. The following files should always be excluded and not deleted :

C:\WINDOWS\RESTORE.INS
C:\WINDOWS\system\RESTORE.INS
D:\MININT\SYSTEM32\Preload.zip
D:\OSONLY\RESTORE.INS

and if present :

C:\OEMCUST\TOOLS\WIN32\PSKILL.EXE
D:\OEMCUST\TOOLS\WIN32\PSKILL.EXE

It's normal that we try to give a follow-up on something that is not well known or suspcious and warn the user of possible files that never should be deleted if we spot them during a scan. We usually try to fix computers, not break them ;)

Happy surf :)
