I have recently experienced some annoyances in terms of lag on my computer. Also, the wireless internet light is always on even though i have no browsers open and have disabled avg antivirus for email scanning/instant protect etc. Furthermore, i cannot seem to use msn messenger, every time i try and log on, it tries connecting only to tell me that the service is unavailable, its as though something is blocking messenger from running.

I have ran numerous scans with avg, and kapersky and they don't find any problems. I have also run malwarebytes and it does'nt detect anything either. This is extremely fishy and i know there is something being transmitted via my wireless connection because i can hear it, even though no browsers are open. I have also ran combofix. All the files seem to be in order, but if it is possible, can i have someone check my hijack and combofix logs, maybe there is something i've missed? I am running Windows XP, any help would greatly be appreciated.

Thank you,

The wireless light is usually on when the wireless card is turned on, not when its sending data. So it doesn't matter if a browser window is open or not. Can you surf the internet?

There's something about msn messenger that will give you that error if your date/time is wrong. Double check your date and time on your system and make sure they are correct.

As far as analyzing the HJT log, you need to open a new topic in the HJT logs forum and post your log there. That's the only place the Bleeping Computers allows HJT logs to be posted.
