All my Yahoo contacts and myself received an email mailed from my Yahoo account with the subject "Hey!! I have something for you!! I hope you will like it!!".

In the text comes a link to a malicious site that downloads a trojan or something like that. The link posted in the mail is "http:antivirus.cashmethods.biz"

About 5 days ago my AV warned me that an mp3 file was infected with Brisv.A!inf. My AV is Symantec Corporate Edition Client 2005 Full Version, Scan engine with updated virus definitions. Went to Symantec's site for removal instructions and followed the instructions there, even downloaded a removal tool. The file in question appeared after reboot and could not be deleted normally so I used Unlock and deleted it anyway. Ran another test and nothing came up. I also ran House Call and Ewido on line and the results were good: no BrisvA!

Mi computer has been taking forever to boot after the BIOS (up to 4 minutes) but behaves normal once started, except that occasionally Mozilla or Chrome (IE6 is hardly used) freeze a bit but do not hang.

I have Spyware Blaster and SpyDoctor installed, and I do routine scans every week, plus Malwarebytes AntiMalware scans every 2-3 weeks. Symantec AV runs every Sunday and in general I try to follow common sense rules when surfing. My son (23) and my daughter (20) use this pc also. I also defrag the drive and use CCleaner often. The last program I have installed (2 days ago) is SpeedUpMyPC, bought it online, ran it and my pc works faster than before but still hangs a bit randomly for a few seconds (4-5 secs)

Today I installed Spybot and ran it, detecting 3 entries of Nebuler.bho and deleted them after reading HiJackThis Instructions. This brought me to this site, as I feel I need advise on how to use this tool without hurting my system.

My system specs are:

Windows XP Pro SP2
2.67 G Pentium IV
1.5 G RAM
Micro Star Motherboard MS-7211 4.1 133Mhz Bus Clock
BIOS: Phoenix Technologies, LTD 6.00 PG 02/28/2007
N-Vidia Ge-Force FX 5200 Graphics Card

Thanks so much for your help.

Hello julianignacio,

Now that you have a log posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/205162/hijackthis-log-please-analyze/ you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
