I just upgraded to Java 1.5.0_6 and uninstalled the previous 1.4 version. Everything was fine and the install went smoothly. Spy Sweeper alerted me that it was attempting to install ssv.dll. I googled this and it showed it was from Java Virtual Machine so I allowed it.

Then, about a week later I had trouble accessing a web page saying I needed to download Java VM. But my Internet Advanced options showed me it was already installed. I ran HJT and found an O2, and 2 O9 entries referencing the ssv.dll file but it said "file missing".

I don't know how this file "disappeared", nor can I trace back to something I may have done.

Here is my HJT log:

These 3 entries used to reference "ssv.dll"

What happened and how do I get this back??

A couple other things:
- I went to Internet Options, clicked on settings in the General tab and then on Objects. I saw 2 entries referencing Java Runtime Environment 1.5 Both entries show "None" in the total size column and one of them sometimes shows "Unknown" in the Status column.

Hello I_am_CanadianEh? and welcome tothe BC HijackThis forum. I do not see any signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.

The "(file missing)" entries in an HJT log might or might not be valid. Sometimes HJT reports them as missing when they are present. It's just a quirk in HJT.

You can verify the presence of the files by doing a search and seeing if they are actually present. If so, then HJT is incorrect in reporting them as "missing".

If the files are actually missing then uninstall/reinstall Java (and disable SpySweeper before reinstalling). If they are present, then you could still try the uninstall/reinstall and see what happens.

If the problem continues then I would suggest posting a question in the Win2k forum and let them analyze it a little deeper. They can assist in non-malware related issues.

Great, thanks for your help. :thumbsup:

I did a search and ssv.dll was NOT present on my system. So I uninstalled and reinstalled and everything seems fine now. I think that what I may have accidentally denied a "change" when a Spy Sweeper alert popped up and hence it did not allow the BHO to be installed properly. As much as I love Spy Sweeper, their shields are a little too agressive. When I installed the first time, I had no less than 4 alerts.....to a legitimate program. Doesn't Spy Sweeper know that Java is legitamite?

Anyways, thanks again. I'm glad to know my PC is clean. :flowers:

Cheers. :huh:

Hi I_am_CanadianEh?. You would think that SpySweeper would know that wouldn't you (haha). I have been testing a program called SpyCatcher by Tenebril that is quite aggressive when it comes to analyzing files also. There were a large number of files designated as threats by SpyCatcher that are harmless which I had to tell it to ignore. I guess it's a case of better safe than sorry.

Hey OldTimer :thumbsup:

Another quirk about Spy Sweeper is that if your hosts file is too large, the Hosts shield will not work :flowers:
I loaded the MPVS hosts list and my hosts file was about 420kb, and the shield told me my hosts file was too large.

I don't know the size limit before this happens, but now I simply use the built in Common ads sites shield. Web sites look ugly when you see the ad sections blocked out with red X's or "This page cannot be displayed"

Spy Sweeper - awesome at detecting and removing spies, but it has some obvious bugs that need fixing in the next release, like alerting you on well-known legitimate items.

Cheers, and thanks again. :huh:
