Hi there! Thanks for providing this forum. I've scanned it for YEARS, but have never had to post until now. I'm an advanced user (but by no means an expert) and I have been experiencing a random problem that I don't know how to solve.

My color scheme has been randomly changing sometimes upon rebooting/startup. I've had NSW, Zone Alarm, installed the whole time, & when I couldn't solve it, I installed Sypbot S&D, but it has happened a couple of times since. I don't think it's serious, but I have to solve it to be certain.

I'll post my log here, but if you see anything else funny with my setup/registry please let me know. Any help you can provide is really appreciated!

There are several layers to this issue. The Tea Timer function available with Spybot Search and Destroy will resist any changes to your system's settings...so when you activate that function and later try to change your color scheme settings it would appear that Tea Timer is preventing the changes to take place. Additionally, your log shows that you've employed the use of the 'Administrative' locking feature also available with Spybot Search and Destroy.

TO facilitate a smoother transition from your present issue to a resolution, I think the best approach would be for you to uninstall Spybot Search and Destroy for the time being. It's a free utility and if you don't think you can live without it you can always go back and reinstall a fresh copy later. Along with that, we should uninstall the following software:
Java
ViewPoint Manager Service
<--Foistware unless you are using AOL but I don't see it in the log.

Click start-->Control Panel-->Add Remove Programs...scroll down the list to locate the program names, Spybot Search and Destroy, Java, and ViewPoint Manager Service...click Remove for each. Reboot when finished uninstalling. We will download the latest version of java after we finish up with this present issue.

Next, please run HijackThis again and check the box next to these entries:

O23 - Service: Viewpoint Manager Service - Viewpoint Corporation - C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\Common\ViewpointService.exe


Close all windows now except for hijackthis...then click the Fix Checked button.

Locate and delete the following folder indicated in Bold Text:
C:\Program Files\Viewpoint
Reboot and post back a fresh HijackThis log. Advise how the system behaves for you now. Thanks!
