I use Windows XP Pro
I've tried to find my problem with no success.
Spybot Search & Destroy finds nothing
Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware finds nothing
Norton Suite finds nothing but tracking cookies.
grc.org reports all ports are stealth
defogger appears to have not found any CD emulators but I rebooted anyway
I shut down little software programs I use that are not necessary to reduce useless report info.
dds.scr produces in the .txt file only one readable phrase "Í!¸LÍ!This program cannot be run in DOS mode.$" though I did not try to run it from DOS. I simply clicked on it from exlorer.exe (I don't put stuff on my desktop.) I'm a attaching a copy; I erased most of the gobbley goop as the file was way to large to upload.
gmer.exe crashes before it completes each time I try to run it. I get a Windows popup explaining that gmer.exe experienced a problem blah blah and then I get an opportunity to send a report to MS. I've got a copy of the MS trouble report.
I originally came to this site to get help to analyze a hijackthis.log. It is the only program that provides something usable. I tried to follow this site's suggestions of what to download and run before requesting help. hijackthis.log is all I can provide. I would appreciate help reading it. The 7e41...log is the file MS created when gmer.exe stopped running.
Could the underlying problem be sabotaging dds.scr and gmer.exe?
