Good Evening,
I have Windows XP and up until last week I had AVG for Antivirus. I changed to Antivirus 2011 last week and when i Run Advanced System Care I am receiving suggestions in the Hijack Settings area. Sorry I am new to all of this and want to make certain that there is nothing that may become a bigger problem. I am attaching the Hijack setting log since much of this is beyond my comprehension. Any suggestions at all would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Michael.

************

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from one of these places:

Advanced SystemCare 3 and IOBit Security 360 is considered by most to be a rogue AV system :!:

http://www.systemlookup.com/search.php?type=filename&search=awc.exe&s=

http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/index.php?showtopic=126267

Although I don't know of it actually doing any damage to the system it
is purported to have stolen a lot of it's programming from MalwareBytes.

I neither trust nor want to do business with a company that would do these kind of things :!:

The installer of Advanced SystemCare is bundled with Yahoo! Toolbar

Click on start, then control panel, and then double-click on add/remove programs.
From within add/remove program uninstall the following by double-clicking on the following entry:
Advanced SystemCare 3
IOBit Security 360
Yahoo Toolbar



We use only the genuine Hijackthis by TrendMicro at this forum.
Please download and install the new version of Hijackthis

Note that it is unnecessary to uninstall the old version because the new one will be copied to a different folder.
Let it install in the default folder C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis

Please post a fresh Hijackthis log. Do not attach the log.
