I posted previously about some perceived connection compromises. I run windows XP. Have two machines one wired ethernet & other picking up wireless connection off my router - BT HOme Hub. I have been suspicions about someone remotely accessing my pcs /newtork. I have a home newtork -but really dont understand that much about it apart from allowing my two machines to share certain files/folders.

on Wireless connected machine after clearing a lot of malware I am left with "Flash installer" upgrade failure constantly popping up - cant track it down or get rid of it? . Any ideas?. Run Mcafee on this machine - which eventually has started working but SuperAntispyware did the majority of tracing / quarantine as Mcafee appeared to have been compromised. I am left with "Flash installer" upgrade constantly popping up - cant track it down or get rid of it? . Any ideas?For info: Virus /Malware removed from Wireless connected PC by SAS ( I will add I unwittingly clicked on FedEx false invoice email!!!! - we were having a lot of deliviries at the time, what an idiot!)


c:\dcouments and settings\networkservice\local settings\temporary internet files\content.ie5\nw7g3bsz\twistandshoot{1}.png{cache:wista}

A few objects under macromedia\flashplayer shared objects

TROJAN.agent/Gen -Fraudantispy
TROJAN . Agent /Gen -Multic (system volume?)

What do these malwares do exactly ?. Also on this machine I cant locate "Local security policy"......I wanted to check some areas having had issues with other PC (SEE BELOW)

On my wired ethernet PC I went snooping around my system & went into event viewer etc & then into Local security settings. Understand a fair bit of it but in User Rights assignments " Access this computer from network " & "impersonate a client after authentication" & several other headings the following appears alongside the usual "users" "adminstrators" etc - what is it:?

* S-1-5-21-3497319662-3801654286-1697624827-1003
Other headings it appears under " Deny Log in Locally" "Deny log in through terminal servers" "log on as a batch job" " log on as service". Cant identify this anywhere - help appreciated?.

Also, noticed my security log wasnt there ! - so I changed settings (audit) and now appears shows some "priviledged actions". This machine did have some malware removed that seemed to be masking / changing security settings etc( SAME hklm AS ABOVE)) but still has Virtool : JS /Obfuscator.AG still present - found by Microsoft scanner. How do I remove this one? I have Mcafee but it hasnt detecetd it nor SuperAntispyware or MalwareBytes.

I also noticed that in my device driver settings (network adaptor) was set to "wake" against various actions. I was unaware of this. Did this mean that somone could turn my PC on remotely ? or access it if left on overnight?
Can someone give me some clues as to what any of this means ? particularly the long number string above.
I maybe being paranoid - but with all this I am suspecting someone has been /continues to be in my machines/connections.
Really appreciate any help.
