Hey Redd, long time no see.
Reboot your computer into Safe Mode.
If you see an icon in the system tray for the firewall, right click on it and choose disable.
Now go to Add/Remove and try to uninstall EZ Armor.While there also uninstall Windows SP Software Update
unless it is something that you know you use. But I think this is leftover from the Beagle infection you had in your last log.
Courtesy of the uninstall of ZA that Leurgy linked you to, delete these files and folders. Please confirm that you were able to do this.
In the Windows Folder Right Click the Internet Logs Folder, click Delete, and choose Yes
Double Click the System32 Folder
Right Click the Zone Labs Folder or EZArmor or any folder that begins with EZ, click Delete, and choose Yes
Right Click the file Vsdatant.sys, click Delete, and choose Yes
Right Click the file VSUtil.dll, click Delete, and choose Yes
Right Click the file VSInit.dll, click Delete, and choose Yes
Go to the Control Panel and disable the Windows firewall.
Restart the computer.
Go back to Control Panel and enable the Windows Firewall.
Get online, and go straight to these sites and run at least two of these online virus scans. If one doesn't work, don't worry about it and just go to the next one.TrendMicro's HouseCallActiveScanBitDefender
Panda and Bit Defender will make logs. Copy and paste them here in your next reply.
Now try to install Sygate, but turn off the Windows Firewall first.
And your HJT log showed you weren't running an antivirus. What happened to Avast? Thought you were happy with it. Before you get back on the net install AVG, you've got to have some protection before you surf.http://free.grisoft.com/freeweb.php/doc/2/
Don't worry about installing Spybot right now. And I hope you've resisted the temptation to reinstall Smiley Central.
You can do without it until you get straightened out, eh?
Sorry about hijacking your thread here Leurgy
