I have run adaware/spybot/MS antivirus beta and they keep finding the same problems. I ran Hijack This! and need help interpreting the output and actions to take. The Task Manager shows CPU at 100% for process aoltsmon.exe when the system is slow.

Thank you.

I need to get samples of some of your files. Please create a folder called c:\submit. Now copy the following files into that directory:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\skimeng.dll
c:\windows\system32\msvcrss.exe
c:\windows\system32\yjyjsmm.exe
c:\windows\system32\winlog.exe
C:\winlogon.exe

To copy the files simply navigate to the directory they are in and right click on the file name, and then click on copy option. Now go back to the c:\submit folder and right click in the folder and select the paste option.

Once the files are all copied zip the folder and rename submit.zip to yourmembername.zip (for example grinler.zip). If you are using XP or ME right-click on the folder and click on the Send To option and then send it to a Compressed folder. You will now see a file called yourmembername.zip. If you are using another version of Windows, please download a program called Winzip and zip it using that.

When the files are zipped, go to:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/submit-malware.php
and fill in the required fields and browsing to the file you are submitting Finally click on the Send File button.


Click on start, settings, control panel and double-click on add/remove programs. From with add/remove program uninstall the following if they exist:

Elitebar
Elitetoolbar
Windows FormatAd


Print out these instructions and then close all windows including Internet Explorer.

Then I want you to fix some of those entries. Please do the following:

Please make sure that you can view all hidden files. Instructions on how to do this can be found here:

How to see hidden files in Windows

Run Hijackthis again, click scan, and Put a checkmark next to each of these. Then click the Fix button:
