I continually have popup adds in internet explorer along with setting changes. I set IE to block all cookies and it resets to allow all cookies. Something happens to my zone alarm firewall so that I have to turn it off to access the internet. Computer performance in general is slower. Firefox seems much less affected than IE. I have tried symantec, ad-aware, spybot, several recommended online virus scanners, symantec's tool for removing vundo, and some other fix for virtumonde. From descriptions of vundo/virtumonde, I think that this is the culprit. Nothing seems to fix it. Attached is the hijackthis log. I have two suspicious entries in this log but they don't show up bad with scans. One is ...npjpi142_03.dll and the other is ...xpnetdiag.exe. Are these the culprits and if they are, can I just delete them?
Thanks in advance for any help!

Hello D73,


If you still need help, please post a fresh Hijackthis log. Do NOT attach the log, as that makes it hard to read.


have two suspicious entries in this log but they don't show up bad with scans. One is ...npjpi142_03.dll and the other is ...xpnetdiag.exe. Are these the culprits and if they are, can I just delete them?

I dont see those in your log.
Have you already deleted them? :thumbsup:
Both are legit files. xpnetdiag.exe is a Network Diagnostic for Windows XP, while npjpi142_03.dll is part of Java version j2re1.4.2_03.
