Ok... only other thing I can think of is a Silent Runner or RootKit. So I need you to run a couple more tools.

Download RootKitRevealer. Extract the files to their own folder. Double click Rootrevealer.exe to run the program. Press the scan button. This is a fairly in depth scan, so it will take a while.

Once it is done. Save the log and copy/paste the contents into a reply. Because the log can be very large, please edit out items in C:\RECYCLER\NPROTECT if there, and C:\System Volume Information, before posting.

Do the same with Silent Runners

Sorry, my husband made me take the day off. I disconnected LAN all day. Everything is set up differently on my computer now, and these guys are making themselves right at home. I keep my folders unhidden, does that mean they show up ghosty looking? Every third file now is ghosty looking. I can recognize the way it's taking over my programs like SpySweeper. I see the legitimate files, and I see a fishy one. Then I delete the fishy one. I exit the folder. As soon as I return, it's back.

I could go on forever. I ran two root scans. The first one only picked up two discrepencies. (Hard for me to believe when I see them all over the place) The second scan I did after I turned the cable back on. I wanted to see if it would pick up more that way. It picked up nothing. That's how every other program bit the dust. It's like going up against a legion of invisible attackers armed with a pocket gun that's only got a single shot.

Can you help me get my firewall back up? And are you out of ideas because you're out of ideas, or because you know it's hopeless?

The reason I ask is that there was a guy named Rollin Rog on Tech Support Guy who was helping me for awhile before I did sys. recovery who told me to report suspicious stuff to him. The problem was, I always felt like a maniac, because everything that looks suspicious to me looks normal to an outsider without relevent context. I just never know what that is. I don't know what I don't know, and neither does anyone else. Should I ask him, or does it get convoluted that way; too many cooks in the kitchen and all that?

That run-whatever logfile I just sent (the second one) might be tampered with. It was such a short scan, and I couldn't figure it out, so it ended up doing a bunch at once. Just now, after posting, I ran my cursor over the files, you know how it's supposed to show the time, date, size, etc.? The digits flashed around for a split second before settling. It looked almost like a slot machine, but just for a split second. I checked all the other ones, and it seemed weird that some were 8 bits and one was only 2. The times seemed off too. When I double checked they'd changed again, (time, and size) and the digits kept doing the flickering thing. I don't know if that means the contents might be altered, or what. It's still doing it every time I check one of those files.

But I do have an important question about that, because it's how I've been able to identify the bad files so far. Can that basic file discription info be messed around with? Yes or No? And the firewall. Is it fixable? Thanks.

Hi ren.

Yes. That is the way they will appear if unhidden.

Can you help me get my firewall back up?

Visit here for instructions on turning the Windows Firewall on.

That's how every other program bit the dust. It's like going up against a legion of invisible attackers armed with a pocket gun that's only got a single shot.

There is nothing visible or invisible infecting your computer ren. The last two scans I had you do are designed for just that purpose. They detect files that are hidden from the Windows API and, as such, are undetectable by regular scans. There is nothing in your logs that point to any kind of infection. Your system is clean.

With that said, it is possible when you did the restore, something went wonky. Also, I would advise you NOT to go through your system deleting files just because they seem "fishy". You are probably doing more harm than good in doing that. As you do things with/on a computer, Windows creates files, modifies files, etc. Some files have some strange names. It is quite possible you been deleting valid files. If you are not 100% positive a file is bad... DO NOT DELETE IT!!!

If you wish, you can download Belarc Advisor. It is a scanner that will return results on your system configuration and may indicate what is going on with your computer. Post the log in a reply and I'll see if I can find anything.

But as I said... as far as infections go... your machine is clean of anything visible and invisible.
