hi there.

I need help from you computer experts.

Something, somewhere in my computer, is slowing down my net speed by a great deal.

Check at the registry revealed a new process mrkscr.exe churning up 50k+ of memory usage, which prompted me to google the process.

Which landed me here.

I'm copying a log of scan by hijackthis over, in the hope that u guys could shine some light on whatever problem my computer is having...here goes

Hi guy_edwin,

I don't see a firewall in your log. If you don't have one, or use Microsoft's firewall in Windows XP, download
Sygate Personal Firewall, Kerio Personal Firewall or ZoneLabs Zone Alarm and install it.
Block everything that is not supposed to dial out!

Please move HijackThis to another location, preferably c:\Program Files\HijackThis. Anywhere is fine, other than your Desktop or a Temp folder. If HijackThis is in a temporary folder you run the risk of accidentally deleting the backups or it clutters your desktop with all the backups.
If you use Windows XP it might be that you just double clicked on the file HijackThis.exe, but that only extracts the file to a temporary folder. Please select the file and Extract it to a folder.

How do you make a permanent folder:

Click "My Computer", then "C:\" and then on "Program Files".
In the menu bar, "File"->"New"->"Folder".
That will create a folder named "New Folder", which you can rename to "HJT" or "HijackThis".
Now you have "C:\Program Files\HijackThis". Put your HijackThis.exe there.

Check your computer with the following free anti-virus/anti-trojan products.

Housecall Anti Virus Panda Anti Virus Trojan Scan Bit Defender

And, here's the link to McAfee AVERT Stinger and instructions for use.

Be sure and put a check in the box by "Auto Clean" before you do the scan. If it finds anything that it cannot clean have it delete it or make a note of the file location, so you can delete it yourself.

After that post a new log from HijackThis.
