Hi apples,

Hi apples,

Before we get started on fixing the log, there are a couple of things I need you to do first:
  • You are running HijackThis from its zipped archive; please create a new folder for it and unzip the program into it. It is very important you do this before anything else. Full instructions on how create a new folder can be found here: Detailed Explanation Brief instructions to create a permanent folder are:
    • Click My Computer, then C:\
    • In the menu bar choose, File -> New -> Folder.
    • That will create a folder named New Folder, which you can rename to "HJT" or "HijackThis".
    • Now you have C:\HJT\ folder.
    • Unzip your HijackThis to this new folder.
  • Reboot your machine in normal mode, run HijackThis and post a new log here using the Add Reply button. Please include information on how your machine is running now.

Thank you for the reply :thumbsup:

My computer runs very, very slow. I have a cable hookup and get popups at reboot.
My fire fire wall is also turned off at reboot???

Start up: selective startup at reboot because I am trying to eliminate certain programs from starting and running in the back ground. If I save and reboot they just reappear. I also get a generic host process error for win32 services - not suitable for msdos & windows.
I know I have programs that are not needed. After researching I either cannot find the information needed and when I do I don't completely understand if they can be stopped or not.
My norton finds items but can never repair - fails on all accounts.
I even tried a manual delete in the registry but that did not work.

We use this computer mostly for school projects.
Any help would be wonderful.

Hi apples,

There are a number of steps you need to take in order to clean your machine. Please carry out the steps in the order they are given. You may find it helpful to print these instructions out as you will not have access to the Internet whilst you are running in Safe mode.
Please read through all of the steps first to ensure you understand what I'm asking you to do. If you have any questions, please ask before you start the fixes.
  • Please uninstall Viewpoint Media Player from Add\Remove Programs.Removing Viewpoint Media Player may cause the program that bundled it to not function as intended. Further information about this software can be found here: About Viewpoint Media Player.

  • Download System Security Suite here:System Security Suite Download & Tutorial. Unzip it to your desktop.Install the program. Don't use it yet.

  • Restart you machine in Safe Mode:
    • Reboot your computer
    • As the machine starts, continually tap the F8 key
    • You will then be presented with a menu screen
    • Use the the up/down arrow keys to select Safe Mode
    • Press the Enter key to boot in that mode.
  • Run HijackThis
    Click on the Scan button and when complete
    Put a check beside all of the items listed below O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AlcxMonitor] ALCXMNTR.EXE
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [etbrun] C:\windows\system32\eliteabs32.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Windows ServeAd] C:\Program Files\Windows ServeAd\WinServAd.exe
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Flr] C:\WINDOWS\System32\hxt.exe

    Close all open Explorer windows and browsers
    Click on the Fix Checked button.
    When complete and all files removed, close the application.

  • Using Windows Explorer please delete the following files or folders (delete item in bold). Please do not be concerned if any of the items are not found as they may have been automatically removed by actions I had you take earlier in the cleaning process.ALCXMNTR.EXE >>> You will need to search for this file
    C:\windows\system32\eliteabs32.exe >>> File Only
    C:\Program Files\Windows ServeAd >>> Folder
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\hxt.exe >>> File Only
  • Close all windows and browsers that are open.Clean out Temporary Folders and Temporary Internet Files as follows:
    • Open the System Security Suite that I had you download earlier.
    • In the Items to Clear tab check:- Internet Explorer (left pane): Cookies & Temporary files- My Computer (right pane): Temporary files & Recycle Bin
    Click the Clear Selected Items button.
    Close the program.

  • Please now enable all the programs to run at start-up that you have previously disabled from running.


  • Reboot your machine in normal mode, run HijackThis and post a new log here using the Add Reply button. Please include information on any problems that you had and whether the popups have eased. Also, can you confirm that your firewall isn't being disabled by you.

Just want to be sure I am reading this correctly ....

"Using Windows Explorer please delete the following files or folders (delete item in bold). Please do not be concerned if any of the items are not found as they may have been automatically removed by actions I had you take earlier in the cleaning process.
ALCXMNTR.EXE >>> You will need to search for this file
C:\windows\system32\eliteabs32.exe >>> File Only
C:\Program Files\Windows ServeAd >>> Folder
C:\WINDOWS\System32\hxt.exe >>> File Only"

Only delete the potion in BOLD.

Hi apples,

That's correct just the item marked in bold, the additional text tells you whether it is a file or a folder. The first entry is probably on your c:\ drive and not in a specific folder, that's why I need you to search for it.

The important thing is that you DO NOT delete the Program Files, Windows or System32 folders as they are critical to the running of your system.

Peter

Hi apples,

Couple more things to do. You may find it helpful to print these instructions out as you will not have access to the Internet whilst you are running in Safe mode. Please read through all of the steps first to ensure you understand what I'm asking you to do. If you have any questions, please ask before you start the fixes.

    • As the machine starts, continually tap the F8 key
    • You will then be presented with a menu screen
    • Use the the up/down arrow keys to select Safe Mode
    • Press the Enter key to boot in that mode.
  • Run HijackThis
    Click on the Scan button and when complete
    Put a check beside all of the items listed below F3 - REG:win.ini: load=??? ??? ??? ? ? ?????

    Close all open Explorer windows and browsers
    Click on the Fix Checked button.
    When complete and all files removed, close the application.

  • Download Spybot and Ad-Aware from the following locations and install them. You should run both programs and clean up what they find. This is to gaurantee that you find the most malware you can installed on your computer.Download both programs from the following locations:Spybot Search and Destroy
    Ad-aware Personal SE
    Before running the scans on both programs, it is mandatory that you update the programs. There are update options in each program when you run them.

Hi Peter,

Followed your instructions - computer is still running very slow - the startup alone takes approx 3 mins for everything to load. Can you suggest what programs I can stop from loading at startup?

I am happy to report that I havn't had any popups in the past few hours :thumbsup:

I did get an error "win 32 encontered a problem"

Here is the newest log:

Hi apples,

Slow running computers can be caused by malware but as your log looks clean, I don't think it's that. Sometimes the amount of memory that you have installed just gets overwhelemed by the number of processes you are running, particularly at start-up. I have listed some below that you could prevent from running at start-up using selective startup. Also, I have experienced with some customers machines that Symantec products do seem to be very resource hungry and you have a number of those processes running at start-up.

If you want to try a couple of alternative Antivirus and Firewall products then I can give you links to ones that I use and find good.

Try preventing these from running at Start-up and let me know how you get on: O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HP Software Update] "C:\Program Files\HP\HP Software Update\HPWuSchd2.exe"
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Creative WebCam Tray] C:\Program Files\Creative\Shared Files\CAMTRAY.EXE
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ViewMgr] C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\Viewpoint Manager\ViewMgr.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [nwiz] nwiz.exe /installquiet /keeploaded /nodetect
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [mmtask] C:\Program Files\MUSICMATCH\MUSICMATCH Jukebox\mmtask.exe
If you can supply the processer speed and amount of memory that you are running then that will perhaps help identify the problem.

Post back with a new log and let me know how the machine is running and when did the slow running start.

This computer has:
Celeron cpu 2.7GHz
2.69 GHz, 248 MB of ram

Drive C has a capacity of 31.7 GB
of which 18.6 GB is still free

With what you have suggested this computer is running a bit better now - are there any other programs I can stop from running in the back ground?
I don't normally use all of the Norton programs - I have been keeping them stopped with selective start up.
I know that there is another way of stopping the programs from running other than selective start up, but I don't remember how.

I would like to thank you for helping me clean up the mess that I had.
I may just post my old computer file to see what can be done to help it get along in its old age - a windows 98, our spare back up. I know its in even more need of help :thumbsup:

Peter - Thank you for all of your help. (Donation made :flowers: )

Hi apples,

Many thanks for your kind remarks and donation, it's very much appreciated. I was previously running my machine with a similar configuration to yours and wasn't experiencing any slowness. The disabling feature in the software is likely to be in the prefrences section, if there is one in the software.

If you have subscribed to the Symantec products that you have installed you shouldn't loose your subscription period if you uninstall and reinstall it later. I do think that trying something like AVG Antivirus and Sygate Personal Firewall (both free by the way) would perhaps identify whether the problem is with Symantec software or not.

I would like you to post a log back for a final check but, in the meantime, I have included my preventions suggestions to help you stay clean and safe.

Peter

I know you have some of the prevention/removal software already installed however, I have itemized below my full list of prevention and removal measures.
Please take the time to review the list and implement any of the software or settings that you don't have already.
  • Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and reenable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point. You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:Renable system restore with instructions from tutorial above.

  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    • Click once on the Security tab
    • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    • Click once on the Custom Level button.
      • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
      • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
      • Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
      • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
      • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
      • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
      • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
      • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  • Use an AntiVirus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.
    See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources
  • Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperative that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

  • Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is susceptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.
    For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:Understanding and Using Firewalls
  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit Windows Update Site regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

  • Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.
    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware , Malware, and Hijackers
  • Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot.
    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer
  • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.
    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware
  • Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.
