Hello solero and welcome to the BC forums. After reviewing your log it looks like you did a pretty good job cleaning up the computer. I do 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:R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = http://uk.red.clientapps.yahoo.com/customi...www.yahoo.co.uk
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://uk.red.clientapps.yahoo.com/customi...fo/bt_side.html
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://uk.red.clientapps.yahoo.com/customi...www.yahoo.co.uk

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [GSISETUP] C:\DOCUME~1\NET\LOCALS~1\Temp\GsiInst.exe INSTALL C:\DOCUME~1\NET\LOCALS~1\Temp\.\V205Res 13
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [xwavuj] c:\winnt\system32\xwavuj.exe -start
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Instant Access] rundll32.exe p2esocks_1040.dll,InstantAccess

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

Step #2

Download CCleaner and install it. Start CCleaner and click on the Run Cleaner button in the lower right-hand corner. When it is finished close CCleaner.

Step #3

OK. Reboot your computer normally, start HijackThis and perform a new scan. Use the Add Reply button to post your new log file back here along with details of any problems you encountered performing the above steps and I will review it when it comes in.

Hi OT,

Just to mention, I left the computer connected to the Internet since my last post probably just over 30 mins ago and already I am getting these little grey "Messenger service" pop up boxes telling me I have an internal problem and that I need to visit a particular site.

I don't click the "ok" button because I'm pretty sure it's a trick, I just close the window, but when I do that 2 or 3 more boxes pop up warning me of the severity of the problems I have. (after that they don't reappear for a while)

Ok well I'll come back on tomorrow, it's just gone 2 in the morning here, appreciate you rhelp,

Mark

Hi solero. The log is looking pretty good. Now let's work on the operating system. Your operating system is extremely out of date. By not keeping your OS updated you leave yourself open to many of the infections that cannot be installed on a properly updated system. I strongly recommend that you go to the Windows Update site and install Service Pack 4. Once that is done, go back to the Windows Update site and install all available Critical Updates. This will patch your system with the most current security fixes and plug all the known holes which your present system has open.

Next, install an antivirus. I see no signs of an antivirus applications on your computer at this time. At the very least, that is your first line of defense against becoming infected while surfing the net. Here are 2 free antivirus applications for you to use (I use Avast myself):After that, get a firewall. The messages that you are receiving are coming through the Windows Messenger Service (not to be confused with the IM application). This is a service which allows anyone else who has your IP address (and anyone can get that) to display messages on your computer. A firewall will block this incoming traffic from reaching your computer and thus your messenger popups will be gone. Here are 3 free fileswalls (I use Sygate):Ok. When the above is complete post a new log back here and I'll check it out.

Cheers.
