First of all this is my first post so plz dont mind if i have placed the post in wrong section.


1)Os: Windows Xp Professional SP2

2)Antivirus Installed: NOD32 Antivirus 3.0.642

3)Malware Byte AntiMalware are also installed.

Anti virus and antimalware scan were not been able to solve this problem. Yesterday it was working properly but from today it closes whenever I click sign in. I have removed(even deleted the directory) and reinstalled it but it does not solve anyway. One more thing I installed limewire and "youtube download studio" yesterday.

I would have used the free trial or even looked for freeware alternatives, limewire is a dangerous place to get progams

in normal mode what else doesn't work?

how about safe mode? using the tap the F8 key at bootup?

have you tried a scan with nod in safe mode?

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

Thanks for the fast reply...

I got some more problems with my PC so I shifted my post to "HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal" because somebody told me its the cause of spywares.

Thanks again.

Now that you have posted an HJT log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/145694/malware-or-spyware-attack/ 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 in 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 EXTREMELY 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. Good luck with your log.
