While I'm waiting on word from the HJT forum with the post I submitted, I keep running Spybot Search & Destroy; each time it identifies: Microsoft WindowsSecurityCenter_disabled; it's in red type so it must be fixed; I tell it to fix it, and two large green check marks appear.
The detail of it is: (SBI $2E20C9A9) Settings
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wscsvc\Start

I have checked the Windows Firewall from the Control Panel, and it looks OK. I have always had Webroot SpySweeper and Norton AV on this laptop; of course now, having followed the steps to submit to HJT log, I also have Spybot, Ad Aware, Sygate firewall, McAfee Stinger, and HijackThis.

Also, when I check for updates (USA) on Spybot S&D, it tells me Detection Rules: Update is available; I download it and exit. Then if I check for updates the next day, the same Detection Rules: Update appears again.

(I have reset TeaTimer so the error messages have stopped.)

Can anyone tell me where I am going wrong?
Thank you,
jackiemarie

Please DO NOT ask for help from other members or staff until the HJT Team has checked your posted log. The HJT Team work very hard to investigate a unique solution to your problem and you will receive individual expert assistance.

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
