Hello is this an Xp machine? what antivirus/spware tools are installed and have you scanned from Safe mode?

Also do you perhaps have the full path to this file?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

The posters there advised going to

http: //fileinfo.prevx.com/QQ3ce315208721-GLB1870577/GLB108.TMP.html (broke apart on purpose)

I don't trust that site only bc that is the only site with any info on the file.

Also after viewing the above mentioned site my IE started acting WACKO refusing to load pages.


The suspect file is residing in
C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch\GLB108.TMP

Hello Martel,

You have a hijackthis log posted here.

After posting a log 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 member 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.

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 until you are cleared by the HJT Team. If you still need assistance after your log has been reviewed and you have been cleared, please PM me or another moderator and we will re-open this topic.

Thanks for your cooperation and good luck with your log.
