I think that posting my HijackThis log will help, but if it isn't enough, please let me know. My computer will randomly make a C:\Uploads folder that puts random files in it until it's like 3.3GB. I don't have any P2P software, but it looks like that's what it's for. Sometimes there are "loader" problems on XP Pro login, and logging in never completes. I can tell there is tons of spyware/adware on my PC but am having a tough time with removal. I am a fairly experienced computer person and can work with the registry, but I thought I'd get some professional advice. Thanks in advance!

Your machine was hacked and probably being used as a warez site.


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

Media Access
180 Search Assistant

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:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = about:blank

O23 - Service: FireDaemon Service: svchost1 (svchost1) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\Temp\FireDaemon.EXE (file missing)

Reboot your computer into Safe Mode

Then delete these files or directories (Do not be concerned if they do not exist)

C:\WINDOWS\nem220.dll
c:\program files\180searchassistant\
C:\Program Files\winupdate\
c:\windows\system32\p2pnetworking.exe
C:\Program Files\Media Access\
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\FireDaemon.EXE


This process will clean out your Temp files and your Temporary Internet Files. Please do both steps:

Step 1:Delete Temp Files
To clean out your temp files, click on Start and then run, and type %temp% and press the ok button.

This should open up the temp directory that your machine uses. Please delete all files that are found there. If you get an error when deleting a file, skip that file and delete all the others. If you had trouble deleting a file, reboot into Safe Mode and follow this step again. You should now be able to delete all the files.

Step 2: Delete Temporary Internet Files
Now I want you to open up Internet Explorer, and click on the Tools menu and then Internet Options. At the General tab, which should be the first tab you are currently on, click on the Delete Files button and put a checkmark in Delete offline content. Then press the OK button. This may take quite a while, so do not be alarmed with how long it takes. When it is done, your Temporary Internet Files will now be deleted.

Reboot your computer to go back to normal mode and post a new log.

Please download and install the program Registry Lite from here:

http://www.resplendence.com/reglite

Once it is installed, please double click on the icon that should now be on your desktop. If an icon is not there, then check under programs portion of the Start Menu.

Once it is opened, copy and paste the below line, into the address field of Registrar Lite.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\

And press enter. You will now be presented with new information in the bottom right and left sections and on the right section.

Right click on ecure and svchost and delete them.

Reboot and post a last log.
