this is probably a silly question, but i'll ask anyway.
While running a search for previous posts concerning my problem office. exe. I came across a solution and was wondering if i could try it out as well or whether the solution was more tailor made for this guys results of his hijack log. Here is the main part of the post concerning the solution.
"Hi, I'm pretty sure that this office.exe is a bad one too and related with the msupdater.exe.
The current formatting of your log makes it difficult to read, so in notepad:
On top, click Format >uncheck Word Wrap
* Download Killbox.
Select the option "Delete on reboot".
Now copy the next bold:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\office.exe
Open 'file' in the killboxmenu on top and choose Paste from clipboard
Now you will see, this is pasted in the "Full Path of File to Delete"-field.
There's a little arrow (dropdown-arrow) next to that field.
If you expand it, these lines must be there together if the files are present!
Then press the button that looks like a red circle with a white X in it.
Killbox will tell you that all listed files will be deleted on next reboot.. Click YES
When it asks if you would like to Reboot now, click YES
If you don't get that message, reboot manually.
Click No at the Pending Operations prompt.
Your computer must reboot now.
After reboot, check and fix next entries in hijackthis again:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [msupdater] msupdater.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [msupdater] msupdater.exe
Reboot once again and post a new hijackthislog."
The system was clean after, if wanted here is a link to the post http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...topic=31779&hl=
Any help would be greatly appreciated. If its cool to carry out these actions i can do them rather than bother u all with my hijack this log
