Hello Forum,

You are great first of all! :thumbsup:

My topic is this: I don't have an infection or anything!

I do have a HiJackThis log that I've learned to interpret. I've read many great guides online. But there are little questions that I have that I would like to clear up.

Things I Do Know About This Log
  • It is not infected (??? Confirmation please???)
  • on my 64-bit system, HiJackThis will say some of my o23-objects are "file missing"
  • R1,R0 - objects = all recognized web addresses, so good there.
  • and all other stuff I can lookup and confirm via google so that's how I've arrived at the conclusion that so far, so good. :)

Things I would like Answered, please :)
  • for o2-objects: URLRedirectionBHO - what the hell is it? Lots of people have it...
  • o8 and o9-objects: why are the "&" in the item description? Such as "Se&nd to OneNote"...
  • and what's with the weird directories for those BHO's?
  • Any similar programs to HiJackThis that does browsers other than IE8? Which I don't even use...

Any clarification will help. Thanks again guys! Like I said, I'm trying to be self-sufficient with this stuff. These are some little questions I have...

Most of the online guides and tutorials provide basic information but really do not go into much specifics regarding each entry. The real learning/training is conducted at various online Unite Schools to include Bleeping Computer's Study Hall to become a member of the Malware Response Team (MRT).

Keep in mind that many of the tools we use for malware removal are designed for 32-bit systems and do not work or can give misleading results on 64-bit machines. For instance as you have noticed, running HijackThis on a 64-bit machine may show log entries which indicate (file missing) when that is NOT always the case.

This is because Microsoft created a new folder named SysWOW64 for storing 32-bit .dll files. WOW64 equates to "Windows on 64-bit Windows". This folder contains all the 32-bit .dll files required for compatibility which run on top of the 64-bit version of Windows. WOW64 is the x86 emulator that allows 32-bit Windows-based applications to run on 64-bit Windows but x86 applications are re-directed to the x86 \syswow64 when seeking the x64 \system32.

Anti-malware scanners and many specialized fix tools have problems enumerating the drivers and services on 64-bit machines so they do not always work properly.

Also keep in mind that HijackThis only scans certain areas of a computer's system/registry to help diagnose the presence of undetected malware in known hiding places. Given the sophistication of malware hiding techniques used by attackers in today's environment, HijackThis is limited in its ability to detect infection and generate a report outside these known hiding places. This limitation has made its usefulness nearly obsolete since a HijackThis log cannot reveal all the malware residing on a computer. As such, HijackThis has been replaced by other preferred tools like DDS, OTL and RSIT that provide comprehensive logs with specific details about more areas of a computer's system, files, folders and registry keys which may have been modified by malware infection.

If you really are interested in learning how all this works, I suggest you enroll in one of the Unite Schools and go through an excellent course of training.

Do you think you should stick with Kaspersky, and learn from Experts at schools first, that is the best way, like I did -
This quote is from you insulting an Expert here - Plus other items -

i refuse to do this! i have kaspersky....8 billion times better than some combofix....why do you keep insisting on combofix
