Hi everyone,

I just got a used PC at work. I am not allowed to format the HD so I can't start clean. I noticed that the login process is slow so I looked at what programs are starting during the startup and there are some questionable programs.

I don't think I'm infected, just want to ask suggestion to have a 'clean' start before I start adding programs on this PC.

I attached a hijackthis log which I hope helps in the process of analyzing my system.

hi coacoro,

You should contact your IT dept. or who ever is in charge of the machines before making any changes. Technically you dont own it as far as I know.

How Can I Reduce My Risk to Malware?
