My computer has been slammed with adware, spyware, unathorized internet connection sharing, worms and trojans. Unfortunately I don't know a lot about computers so I need instructions on how to get this SQL Slammer off my system and then how to keep it off. I have Windows XP service pack 3. For Security I have downloaded and ran Spybot, AntiVir, AVG, HJT, Zone Alarm, Software Informer, MalwareBytes and CCleaner. These programs are picking them up and I select "delete" but when I re-run them they show up again. "They are UDP Alerts, winlogon, ctfmon at startup, realplayer and limewire trying to access when I'm not running them. I get constant Zone Security Alerts (about every 2 minutes) I ran netstat and had so many things listed I got confused and just took pictures. Could you please help me and then help me as to what security I should run, I know running to many is a problem of it's own but I'm just so lost as to what to do. Thank you for your much needed help. I am using a Dell Dimension 2350.

the scan is running and I did subscribe so thank you for that. 2 days ago Malwarebytes said I had 168 infected objects and my Advanced Systems Care said I had 5701 security defenses problems and 772 registry errors along with about 8 network drivers I didn't install. That can't be right, right?

Hello

I see that you have an HJT log posted here:

We do not allow more than one topic for the same computer and the same issue as this causes confusion, and in this case may make the disinfection process more difficult.

This leaves you with a choice:

1) Have this thread reopened and the HiJack This log topic deleted

OR


2) Keep this thread closed and wait for assistance in the HiJack This log forum. Please note that that forum is VERY busy.

Please send a Private Message indicating your choice.

Assuming you wish assistance in the HiJack This forum, 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. Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible

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