I did all the fun stuff requested before I submitted my hijackthis log. My worry is that my laptop has gotten so very slow in the past couple months and someone requested that I delete a bunch of processes and the like. I know it's because I have way too many processes running, but I don't know what to delete, or how to actually delete a process. If anyone could tell me what evil little programs are running and direct me to a place that explains how to rid myself of them, my laptop and I would be greatly appreciative! Thanks in advance.

Hello Garnenia,

While TeaTimer is an excellent tool for the prevention of spyware, it can sometimes prevent HijackThis from fixing certain things.
Please disable TeaTimer for now until you are clean. TeaTimer can be re-activated once your HijackThis log is clean.
  • Open Spybot Search & Destroy.
  • In the Mode menu click "Advanced mode" if not already selected.
  • Choose "Yes" at the Warning prompt.
  • Expand the "Tools" menu.
  • Click "Resident".
  • Uncheck the "Resident "TeaTimer" (Protection of overall system settings) active." box.
  • In the File menu click "Exit" to exit Spybot Search & Destroy.
I mark some optional entries to speed up your computer for you, they will be marked in blue.

Please open Hijackthis, scan, and place a checkmark by the following entries:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = file:///c:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Kimberly%20Watrud/My%20Documents/kim.html
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SynTPEnh] C:\Program Files\Synaptics\SynTP\SynTPEnh.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AlcWzrd] ALCWZRD.EXE

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Alcmtr] ALCMTR.EXE
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HControl] C:\WINDOWS\ATK0100\HControl.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [ctfmon.exe] C:\WINDOWS\system32\ctfmon.exe


Close all open windows/browsers and click Fix Checked.

Exit Hijackthis.

Next, please reboot your computer in SafeMode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.
Then delete the following file:

ALCMTR.EXE <--- you will need to search for this one

Please reboot into normal mode and post a fresh Hijackthis log.

If your computer is still slow you can also try defragmenting.
(Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter)

How is your computer running now?
