Hi everybody.I like fiddling with pc's and I've had a modicum of success with removing malware.However I volunteered
to look at a friend of a friends pc (Compaq Presario SR1303WM) AMD 2,0 GHz Cpu,256MB Ram,and 40 GB HD running Xp home.
Well the only indication of a problem I could get is they couldn't do anything with the computer,so I started by trying
it out to observing any problems right away there are plenty of pop ups and it grinded to halt speed wise.I deactivated
norton's security,because its definitions had not been updated since 04 and it subscription also ran out about the same time,
but windows security center showed everything in the green.I'm comfortable with these gems Avg 8.0,Malwarebytes Antimalware,
and Spybot and Destroy also downloaded ccleaner and hijackthis.I disengaged system restore and used ccleaner then checked
all programs in the add/remove section and removed any that seemed suspicious such as error smart,blubster,and one called
Femta which didn't show in add/remove,but from start menu list of programs with no possible way to uninstall it.I removed those
by folder from the HD local disk into the recycle bin, but I haven't finished deleting them in case they should need to be restored.During the
spybot scan there are three files can't be deleted and they are (SBI $3A3BDC07)Program Directory C:\WINDOWS\wt\
2 (SBI $76830867)Program Directory C:\WINDOWS\wt\wtupdates\ 3 (SBI $6599E86A)Program Directory C:\WINDOWS\wt\wtupdates.
Plus the machine is really sluggish.If anyone can help I'd really appreciate it.

Femta is an ovulation calendar.
Blubster is a P2P program (using any P2P program to download pirated music, video, or crack programs is dangerous)

See info in link below for the items that Spybot S&D noted.

Allow Secunia to scan your computer for missing security updates. Adobe Flash, Adobe Reader, Java and IE browser have all been recently exploited. After updating Java go to Add/Remove program and remove all old Java programs.
