The ones ive told 2 times already!!

my ME still does a little bit odd, like when i click on ie or firefox , it gets black and then i have to reboot or sometimes it gets stuck with green stripes at the top an then i have to reboot again and again , one time i rebooted 14 times after each other. ???
Are the Trojans doing this? :'(

Sometimes if i click on IE or firefox the PC turns black gets stuck and then there r green stripes at the top.

.... :(

Hi Sarethor,

I noticed a few things in your log:

O8 - Extra context menu item: &Search - http://kc.bar.need2find.com/KC/menusearch.html?p=KC

Quote
Research conducted 02/06/2006: Based on eTrust™ PestPatrol® Spyware Scorecard v2.05.09, 'MySearch Toolbar' violates the following criteria: 'installs without providing explicit opt-out option from vendor's site or associated application.' MySearch was installed with insufficient user awareness and consent from FasterXP.com. As a side note, it came bundled with a known adware application and a homepage hijacker.

http://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/pest/pest.aspx?id=453090717

Removal recommended

O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {CD67F990-D8E9-11d2-98FE-00C0F0318AFE} - (no file)

You can remove this

O16 - DPF: {288C5F13-7E52-4ADA-A32E-F5BF9D125F99} (CR64Loader Object) - http://www.miniclip.com/platypus/miniclipGameLoader.dll

This is a Trojan downloader.

http://www.sophos.com/security/analyses/trojagentel.html

You must have HijackThis! fix this entry.

F1 - win.ini: run=C:\WINDOWS\hpfsched.bat;C:\WINDOWS\hpfsched.exe;C:\WINDOWS\hpfsched.com;C:\W INDOWS\hpfsched.scr;C:\WINDOWS\hpfsched.vbs;C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\hpfsched.bat;C:\W INDOWS\COMMAND\hpfsched.exe;C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\hpfsched.com;C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\h pfsched.scr;C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\hpfsched.vbs;C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\hpfsched.bat;C:\WI NDOWS\SYSTEM\hpfsched.exe;C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\hpfsched.com;C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\hpfsc hed.scr;C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\hpfsched.vbs

This entry looks suspicious, but hpfsched.exe seems to be a printer program to remind you to clean the printer heads. A number of forums have recommended fixing this entry. Certainly removal won't cause any problems, but you may want to wait for further advice: I'm sure essexboy can give us some more information.

You also have WildTangent, which may be a concern:

You can fix this redundant entry:

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {A53A2840-6291-C1EA-440B-B5FB2119460B} - C:\WINDOWS\APPLICATION DATA\FORSOAP\TRAYISO.EXE (file missing)

Otherwise, the log looks good. But you do need to install the latest version of Sun Java:

http://www.java.com/en/download/index.jsp

After installing, please uninstall any older versions of Java on your computer as they are a security risk.

I don't know if you use an alternative browser, but doing so would be a lot safer- and they are also a lot more feature-rich than IE6.

As this is the avast! forum, you're probably going to be recommended avast! here.  ::)

You can check out detection rates here:

http://www.av-comparatives.org/

Avira has better detection rates, but has a few drawbacks, viz: updates can take 15 minutes, if they ever happen at all, the program is nagware, and there's a bug in the update procedure that leaves a process running at 100% CPU usage.

According to av-comparatives, avast! is 'advanced' and AVG standard in terms of detection.

avast! has more features than AVG (Webshield, P2P scanning etc.)

The choice is yours!

do you expect someone here to answer that ??


seriously if you feel you need two then combine avast! with bit defender free as a backup, it has good detection rates and no resident to clash with avast!

good luck  :)
