Hi there, just wondering if anyone would be able to help me out please, my computer has been on a steady decline for sometime now. Numerous spyware that seems to reappear even after hits from adaware and spybot. As well as this i seem to get strange error messages that say "generic host process for win32 services has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience" I 3 error windows that say that everytime my computer starts up. The spyware i believe has something to do with DyFuCA, and IST-bar, and different variations of those two. Im running XP, and a copy of a Hijack this log follows:

Hi Jim and welcome to the BC forums. After reviewing your log I see a few items that require our attention. Please proceed with the following steps in order.

Step #1

Start HijackThis and click the Scan button to perform a scan. Look for the following items and click in the checkbox in front of each item to select it:R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoft Update Machine] MSOICONS.EXE
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Microsoft Update Machine] MSOICONS.EXE
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Microsoft Update Machine] MSOICONS.EXE
O15 - Trusted Zone: http://ny.contentmatch.net (HKLM)
O16 - DPF: {15AD6789-CDB4-47E1-A9DA-992EE8E6BAD6} - http://static.windupdates.com/cab/6247971C...e/bridge-c6.cab

Now close ALL open windows except HijackThis and click the Fix Checked button to finish the repair.

Step #2

We need to make sure all hidden files are showing so please:* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.
Find the following files/folders and delete them (don't worry if they are already gone):MSOICONS.EXE (search for this file and delete all instances. See the note below regarding searching in XP)
Windows XP's search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that Search system folders, Search hidden files and folders, and Search subfolders are checked.

Next, let's clean up the temporary folders:* Click Start
* Point to Programs
* Point to Accessories
* Point to System Tools
* Click Disk Cleanup
* Select the following items and then click the OK button.* Temp Setup Files
* Downloaded Program Files
* Temp Internet Files
* Debug Dump Files
* Office Setup Files
* old chkdsk files
* Recycle Bin
* Temp Remote Desktop Files
* Setup Log Files
* Temp Files
* WebClient temp files
[/list]OK. Reboot your computer normally, start HijackThis and perform a new scan. Post your new log file back here using the Add Reply button and I will review it when it comes in.

OT
I do not respond to PM's requesting help. That's what the forums are here for. Please use them so that others may benefit from your questions and the responses you receive.

Hi OldTimer, thanks for your quick response. I followed the steps you suggested, except for one thing; in the disk clean program not all of the options you told me to tick were there for me to tick, but i did all the ones that were available to me. here is my most recent HJT log.

There it is, it appears that MSOICONS keeps coming back, all well as the other spyware that i thought i had got rid of. In fact this log looks worse that the 1st one i posted, this is one persistent piece of spyware.

Anyway, thank you all for any help and advice that you can offer, you have no idea how close this computer is coming to going in the trash!

Cheers

Jim
