This past Thursday I ran across a problem at a website, where some unwanted programs became part of my computer. In the taskbar, there was a red circle with a white X, which warned me of a problem and leading me to a website trying to trick me to downloading other bad programs. In an effort to fix the problem myself, and in hopes of providing the most timely information to you, I followed directions that were given to other folks with similar problems. I downloaded Combofix and the Windows XP Service Pack 2 program, turned off anti-spyware/anti-malware programs, and then dropped the Windows SP program into the Combofix program.

As instructed, however, I have simply included the HijackThis log requested in this reply.

The red symbol with white X is gone, but when I try to go to certain HijackThis forums via Google Search results, I am still redirected to other sites. Also, I still periodically get a Windows Security Alert stating:

"To help protect your computer, Windows Firewall has detected activity of harmful software. Do you want to block this software from sending data over the Internet?

Name: Trojan-Spy.Win32.KeyLogger.aa
Risk Level: Critical
Description: This Trojan has a keyboard logging function, which is intended to steal information from users of a range of on-line payment systems. . . [etc.]"

So, it seems like there may still a problem. Please see the HijackThis log below. Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide.

Hello indigenouspupil,


Apologize for the delay in response we get overwhelmed at times but we are trying our best to keep up.
If you have since resolved the original problem you were having would appreciate you letting us know If not please perform the following below so I can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

  • Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.
  • Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  • Once it has finished, two logs will open. Please post the contents of both log.txt (<<will be maximized) and info.txt (<<will be minimized)


B. Next, please run the Kaspersky Online Scanner

In Microsoft Windows Vista, you must open the Web browser using the Run as Administrator command. From the Desktop right click the icon to open the browser and choose Run as Administrator.
  • Click on SCAN NOW
  • Click Accept.
  • The program will then begin downloading the latest definition files.
  • Once the files have been downloaded locate the Scan Settings and have it scan My Computer.
    The scan will take a while, so be patient and let it finish.

When the scan is done, in the Scan is complete window, any infection is displayed.
There is no option to clean/disinfect, however, we need to analyze the information on the report.

To obtain the report:

  • Copy and paste the Kaspersky Online Scanner Report in your next reply.
  • Note: For Internet Explorer 7 users: If at any time you have trouble viewing the accept button of the license, click on the Zoom tool located at the bottom right of the IE window and set the zoom to 75%. Once the license is accepted, reset to 100%.

With Regards,
RELOADED
No goal is worthy of our time and effort if all we are going to get out of it is an end result.
