I searched several different search engines and they have nothing. Every time I boot up I get that message box that says cxfuod.exe needs to close. I get the option to sent a report or not. I do sometimes and sometimes I don't.

I have read the info, OK I scanned over it, but I didn't see anything there that helped me.

It only happens when I start up the computer.

I'd suspect something bad since it doesn't come up on the search engines.

Check your startups to see if it's there (Start...Run...type in "msconfig.exe" (without the quotes) and press Enter). If so, disable it.

Then, run a couple of these free, online scans to make sure that nothing has snuck onto your system:

In addition to what usasma has recommended I suggest that you also download and scan with Ewido Security Suite v3.5

OK, I'm doing all the above. It takes forever, please be patient with me. This computer belongs to my nieces and I have to wait my turn. I appreciate your help.

The girls are running a full version of McAfee. I downloaded and ran HiJack This, Ad-Aware, Panda & Spybot Search & Destroy. I don't like the things I see in the results, I think it's bad, but I am scared to remove anything without advice.

I loaded and am running a2 something now.

Also the cxfuod.exe does not show up in misconfig.

Should I start posting some logs & results? If so what, how & where?

Thanks!

You should allow Panda (assuming you are talking about Panda's online scan), to fix anything it finds.

These 2 tutorials explain how to use Spybot, and Ad-Aware:
Using Ad-Aware SE
Using Spybot

If you are still having problems after running all of your scans, then:

Read How to post a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully.

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

NOTE:
Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.

If you are afraid to remove the items found in the scans, McAffee and many of the other have a provision to quarantine them which means they can be restored if problems arise.

Many of what you are probably seeing are cookies although there might well be more serious malware in there.



Since you ran Adaware and Spybot Search and Destroy you might want to download Hijack This, following instructions on the following link explicitly.

Please read the pinned post in our “HijackThis” forum, here
Carefully read and follow all directions explicitly.

Following instructions, run a HJT log and post it in our HJT forum, at this link.

Do not as yet attempt to fix anything by yourself using Hijack This.

A member of our HJT Team will analyze your log, make recommendations and offer assistance.

It may take a short period of time to get a response to the log you posted because the members of our HJT Team are kept very busy.
Please be patient as this team is manned by volunteers. They will help you as soon as possible.

NOTE
Once you have posted your HJT log, please DO NOT make any additional posts in the HJT thread in which you posted your log until you get a response from a member of our HJT expert team.

The first criteria they have when looking for logs that need replies are posts showing 0 replies. If you make an additional post, it will show as having 1 reply.

A team member, looking to see if a reply has been made might well assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and might not open the thread to respond.

So, make your post and wait for a response from a team member.

I have been working on all the above. I have also read the instructions on posting in the HiJack This section. Thank you for all your help. As you can see I only get computer time here late at night.
