Hi there,

my laptop has started randomly freezing, and I mean freezing completely, zero response. I have no option but to pull the plug on it and restart when it happens. I haven't experienced anything like this since the bad old days of windows 98! There is no blue screen error or anything, so i dont think its hardware related. This leads me to think it might be some kind of spyware/virus.

Here is my HJT log:

Hi,

Hi!

Your HijackThis log looks clean. :blink:

Step #1
Looking over your log, it seems you don't have any evidence of a third party firewall.

As the term conveys, a firewall is an extra layer of security installed onto computers, which restricts access to systems from the outside world. Firewalls protect against hackers and malicious intruders. I want you to download a free firewall NOW from one of these excellent vendors:

1) ZoneAlarm
(At installing Zonealarm, please uncheck this option "include a ZoneAlarm Spy Blocker...". The Toolbar is not recommended... You can read more about it here.)
2) Agnitum
3) Sunbelt/Kerio
4) Comodo

If you are using the built-in Windows XP firewall, it is not recommended as it does not block outgoing connections. This means that any malware on your computer is free to "phone home" for more instructions. Simply put, Windows XP contains a mediocre firewall. This firewall is NO replacement for a dedicated software solution. Remember to use only one firewall at the same time.

Step #2
Let's remove temporary files:

Please download ATF-cleaner and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Under Main choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.

    If you use Firefox browser:

  • Click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.

    If you use Opera browser:

  • Click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
Step #3
Let's scan your computer:

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Acan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • The next screen will ask you to select the drives to scan. Leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

oops, i reformatted my laptop a little while ago and obviously forgot to put ZA back on it. That was silly. Will do that now and get back to you ASAP with the other logs.

Good to know my log is clean at least, the only line i didnt like the look of much was:

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)

and the only reason i didnt like the look of that was because i dont like things without names since they could be anything (as far as my limited knowledge enables me to tell anway)!

ZA is still in the process of downloading - my internet connection is pretty terrible so its taking a while. I am on the case though!

Iv just realised something, i have 2 external hard drives as well and now i think of it i think the freezing might happen more regularly when one of them is attached, should i attach them and run new MBAM/HJT scans?

Thanks very much for your help.

Hi!

Run MBAM now and use "Perform Full Scan". It'll scan all your hard drives :thumbsup:
After scanning post MBAM's log back here and a new HijackThis.

sorry its taking me so long to do these scans and get the logs posted, but trying to run a MBAM scan with both external drives attached is proving difficult, 3 times consecutively it has frozen within 4 minutes of starting the scan. Im very suspicious that it is one of the hard drives now. I will keep trying to get a completed scan but Im not overly hopeful at present!

hi again,

sorry i havent replied for a while, have been away for a couple of days. I have tried numerous times to run MBAM with hard drives attached, and ever time it has frozen withing 10 minutes, often less. I havent tried in safe mode, so i will do that now, and get back to you asap if it succeeds.
