Can I remove these items?
« on: October 22, 2009, 10:30:19 AM »
Dear Forum,

Can somebody please advise whether it is safe to remove these eight items from my HJT log?

O2 - BHO: Windows Live Sign-in Helper - {9030D464-4C02-4ABF-8ECC-5164760863C6} - C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Windows Live\WindowsLiveLogin.dll
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HPDJ Taskbar Utility] C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86\3\hpztsb12.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SunJavaUpdateSched] "C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\jusched.exe"
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QTTask.exe" -atboottime
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Adobe Reader Speed Launcher] "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Reader\Reader_sl.exe"
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Adobe ARM] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\ARM\1.0\AdobeARM.exe"
O16 - DPF: {5D86DDB5-BDF9-441B-9E9E-D4730F4EE499} - http://www.bitdefender.co.uk/scan_uk/scan8/oscan8.cab
O18 - Protocol: skype4com - {FFC8B962-9B40-4DFF-9458-1830C7DD7F5D} - C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\Skype\SKYPE4~1.DLL

I thought I deleted all the HP printer drivers from my system. There are no HP printers or scanners listed in my printers list. How can I ensure this?

Also, what should I do with this entry?

O23 - Service: IBM PSA Access Driver Control (PsaSrv) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\system32\PsaSrv.exe (file missing)

It appears the file is legitimate (I am on an IBM laptop). However the file PsaSrv.exe is only located in:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\PsaSrv.exe
C:\IBMTOOLS\utils\PsaSrv.exe

Thank you for your help!

Hi avastfan1,

 It would be better if you'll post the complete log so we would be able to analyze it better.

Hi,

I have deleted some of the items! :) No adverse effects up until now - computer boots normally.

Here is my current HJT log. The items I would love to delete if there were no consequences are:

O2 - BHO: AcroIEHelperStub - {18DF081C-E8AD-4283-A596-FA578C2EBDC3} - C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Acrobat\ActiveX\AcroIEHelperShim.dll
O2 - BHO: Java(tm) Plug-In 2 SSV Helper - {DBC80044-A445-435b-BC74-9C25C1C588A9} - C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\jp2ssv.dll
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Adobe ARM] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\ARM\1.0\AdobeARM.exe"
O9 - Extra button: Messenger - {FB5F1910-F110-11d2-BB9E-00C04F795683} - C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe
O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Windows Messenger - {FB5F1910-F110-11d2-BB9E-00C04F795683} - C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exeO16 - DPF: {E2883E8F-472F-4FB0-9522-AC9BF37916A7} - http://platformdl.adobe.com/NOS/getPlusPlus/1.6/gp.cab

Can you please advise if I can delete (or fix in HJT) the above?

Also, if there are any other items which require attention in the full log below?

Thanks!!!!!!!!

HijackThis, sometimes abbreviated HJT, is a freeware enumerating tool for Microsoft Windows. The program is notable for targeting browser hijacking methods - rather than relying on a database of known spyware. It scans a user's computer quickly, and displays browser hijacking locations, showing what entries are there. HijackThis is used primarily for diagnosis of browser hijacking, as uninformed use of its removal facilities can cause significant software damage to a computer. HijackThis does not remove or detect spyware, it only lists most common locations where browser hijacking activity can occur. Browser hijacking can cause malware to be instituted on a user's computer.

HijackThis can generate a plain text logfile detailing all entries it finds, and some entries can be fixed by HijackThis. Inexperienced users are often advised to exercise caution, or to seek help when using the latter option, as HijackThis does not discriminate between legitimate and unwanted items, with the exception of a small whitelist of legitimate entries — thus allowing a user unintentionally to prevent important programs from operating, which may cause their system or its peripherals to stop working. HijackThis will, however, attempt to create backups of the files and registry entries it fixes, which can be used to restore the system in the event of a mistake.

A common use is to post the logfile to a forum where more experienced users can help decipher which entries need to be removed. Automated tools also exist that analyze saved logs and attempt to provide recommendations to the user, or to clean entries automatically. Use of such tools, however, is generally discouraged by those who specialize in manually dealing with HijackThis logs: they consider the tools to be potentially dangerous for inexperienced users, and neither accurate nor reliable enough to substitute for consulting with a trained human analyst.

avastfan1,

 I am very sorry for the very late reply. My firefox seems to be screwing up and crashing a lot. All recently unread topics are gone so I am only able to reply now.

 I just analyzed your latest log. Nothing seems to be wrong. Still, it would be best to hear some other opinions about the log. Did you uninstall an Adobe product?

Hi L'Arc,

Thanks for the reply. I didn't uninstall an Adobe product.

Rather, I am trying to get rid of unwanted entries in the HJT log which are not necessary.

For example, I deleted the Java Update Scheduler because I choose to do that manually. Hence I don't need it automatically loading. The same with the QuickTime Updater.

Cheers and I look forward to you reply!

I don't know about the others; I don't have them.  But I've safely deleted the following.  (I actually disable them from the Autoruns > Login pane by unchecking them.  That way if I make a mistake, it can be reversed easily.)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SunJavaUpdateSched] "C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\jusched.exe"
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QTTask.exe" -atboottime
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Adobe Reader Speed Launcher] "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Reader\Reader_sl.exe"
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Adobe ARM] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\ARM\1.0\AdobeARM.exe"

This might be problematic.  I'm not sure.  I followed the instructions in the Adobe Security Blog http://blogs.adobe.com/psirt/2009/08/

Hi Alan Baxter,

O16 Section

This section corresponds to ActiveX Objects, otherwise known as Downloaded Program Files, for Internet Explorer.

ActiveX objects are programs that are downloaded from web sites and are stored on your computer.
When Internet Explorer is started, these programs will be loaded as well to provide extra functionality. These objects are stored in C:\windows\Downloaded Program Files. They are also referenced in the registry by their CLSID which is the long string of numbers between the curly braces.
To find a listing of all of the installed ActiveX component's CLSIDs, you can look under the HEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Code Store Database\Distribution Units\ Windows Registry key.

There are many legitimate ActiveX controls such as the one in the example which is an iPix viewer.

Example Listing   O16 - DPF: {11260943-421B-11D0-8EAC-0000C07D88CF} (iPix ActiveX Control) - http://www.ipix.com/download/ipixx.cab
If you see names or addresses that you do not recognize, you should Google them to see if they are legitimate or not. If you feel they are not, you can have them fixed. By deleting most ActiveX objects from your computer, you will not have a problem as you can download them again. Be aware that there are some company applications that do use ActiveX objects so be careful. You should always delete 016 entries that have words like sex, porn, dialer, free, casino, adult, etc.

There is a program called SpywareBlaster that has a large database of malicious ActiveX objects. You can download that and search through it's database for known ActiveX objects. A tutorial on using SpywareBlaster can be found here:

Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware, Hijackers, and Malware.

When you fix O16 entries, HijackThis will attempt to delete them from your hard drive. Normally this will not be a problem, but there are times that HijackThis will not be able to delete the offending file. If this occurs, reboot into safe mode and delete it then.

"Javacool's SpywareBlaster has a huge database of malicious ActiveX objects that can be used for looking up CLSIDs. (Right-click the list to use the Find function.)"

For automated use download this axhelper software from here: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/axhelper.html

Thank you, polonus.  I apparently didn't already have a way to view my ActiveX Controls, so I downloaded this utility.  It says I have 135 of them, most of them from Microsoft.  I'm surprised IE8 doesn't have something like that built-in.  I'm glad Firefox will list all of my plugins and extensions without having to run an external program.

Hi Alan Baxter,

Glad to have made you aware of these issues, now you can manage them. There are also programs to render insecure ActiveX with killbits until patched or indefinitely. I guess you now know what to do in forecoming situations, and you also will pass this info,

your NS-forum and anti-malware friend,
