Download Sec-Info.zip from here and save it to your Desktop. You will need to extract the file.

Right click on the zipped folder and from the menu that appears, click on Extract All...
In the 'Extraction Wizard' window that opens, click on Next> and in the next window that appears, click on Next> again.
In the final window, click on Finish

You should now see a folder with a .vbs file in it. Double click Sec-info.vbs to run it and a text file called Sec-Info.txt should be created in the same folder - either that or you'll get an error message.
Please copy and paste the contents of the text file into your next reply and then you can delete both of the folders and their contents.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

I see the vbs file is trying to use Windows Management Instrumentation to look at anti-virus and firewall products installed. The script produced an empty text file. The machine is running Windows Defender and the Windows XP firewall. It also has Malwarebytes on it. It seems like there is some install of ComboFix that wouldn't uninstall, also. There is a folder in the root of C: that has an icon that looks a little like the My Computer icon and having a name like the name of the ComboFix file I saved to followed by a hex string. Don't know what's going on with that. Thanks in advance for your offer of help. This thing is driving me nuts and I'm about ready to see if I can lay hands on a disk sector editing program so I can do a brute force restoration of the master boot record. I'll try to respond a little quicker as we go along. If I had confidence the computer store (CompUSA, MicroCenter, Best Buy, etc.) could fix it, I'd probably just run it over there. Do you have any experience in that realm?

Unfortunately Windows Defender isn't an anti-virus program and this, along with an adequate firewall which the SP2 one isn't, is the minimum protection your PC needs. How long as the system been without an anti-virus program?

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

I believe this machine is running XP Pro SP3. It may have had AVG on it at one time, but I disabled that quite a while back. It may have been a year or more without anti-virus software running. I prefer the approach of avoiding infection in the first place. We run Symantec at the office and there have been a large number of rogue anti-malware infections there lately. So I really don't see that much difference between having AV or not having it. If I thought one existed that was actually effective, I would have it.

The firewall you have came originally with SP2 and as far as i'm aware hasn't been upgraded since then.

While I agree with the philosophy of avoiding infections rather than hoping that resident security blocks them, and also accept that such security isn't perfect, it does offer a degree of protection that you are unwise to dismiss. Given the increased likelihood, through having no resident AV, that malware has corrupted and/or replace legitimate files and lowered security setting making infection more likely in the future, my best advice is to back up any important files and then reformat and reinstall.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
