Howdy,

I'm new to this forum and according to a Hijack This! analyzer website, it says I might have CWS variant. I'm hoping somebody can help if it is that. Here's the Hijack This! log file.

Cheers.

Good evening. :)

Does your PC show any symptoms of an infection or are you just working on the results of the analyzer?

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Good afternoon. :-)

My PC is not showing any symptoms. I'm working on the results of the analyzer. Just wanted to be on safe side. My Avast does not show any thing that could possibly be bad. However, my PC does crash whenever I use CyberLink PowerDVD 11 after watching a movie. It shows me taskbarkiller.exe error every time I exit from Cyberlink program.

Thank you for looking into this.
Best regards.

Good evening. :)

I suggest that you treat the results of an automatic analyser with a pinch of salt - for one thing, I don't recall the last time I saw a CWS infection.

It sounds like your system is having issues with one particular program and I doubt that that is indicative of any infection, but we'll take a closer look.

As HijackThis has not been seriously updated by Trend Micro in some time, it is now no longer considered to be an effective tool for malware removal. You will need to go here, follow steps 6, 7 and 8 and post accordingly into this thread.

Also, pay a visit to the ESET Online Scanner.

  • Click the ESET Online Scanner button and a new window will open - you may need to maximise it.
  • Click the Run ESET Online Scanner button in the new window.
  • If you are using any other browser than IE, you will be prompted to download and run esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe and the scan will run from within the window that the executable opens.
  • Regardless of which browser you are using, you will be shown some terms and conditions and you will need to accept these to continue.
  • If you are running IE for this scan you will then be prompted to allow an ActiveX component to be downloaded, unless you already have it installed, and the scan will run inside IE.
  • When you see the Computer Scan Settings window, you will need to make the following changes:

    • UNCHECK Remove found threats - this is important.
    • Check Scan archives
    • Click on Advanced settings
    • Check Scan for potentially unsafe applications
  • Once ready, click Start to begin - not a surprise really!
  • The anti-virus definitions will now be downloaded, so don't forget to allow them through your firewall if prompted.
  • The above will take a little time, so now is a good time to fire up the kettle and open the biccies.
  • Once the scan has completed you will be shown the results - assuming that the scanner has found anything.
  • Click List of found threats and then Export to text file... and save the log somewhere convenient.
  • You can then close out the scanner - don't bother uninstalling it as you may need to use it again.
  • Please post the contents of this file in your next reply, or let me know that nothing was identified.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Hi again,

Nothing was identified. It didn't show me anything to click on for contents of the file. Guess it only shows contents if something bad is found.

Many thanks for your assistance, and I think this thread can be closed. Cheers!

As this issue appears to have been resolved, this thread is now closed.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
