Posted 30 May 2006 - 06:01 AM

My system is freezing, or running really slow. I think it's been hijacked by Red Swooch.
In program files folder, i see the folder RSOFT. "C:\Program Files\RSSoft"
In it there is a Cache folder with 456 MB of videos in it (not mine!) C:\Program Files\RSSoft\Cache
There is also a Resourse folder C:\Program Files\RSSoft\resource
There are also the following files;
C:\Program Files\RSSoft\ClientCoreLib-1.911-288.dll
C:\Program Files\RSSoft\ClientCoreLib-1.913-621.dll
C:\Program Files\RSSoft\data.txt
C:\Program Files\RSSoft\install.ini
C:\Program Files\RSSoft\metadata.txt
C:\Program Files\RSSoft\precache.txt
C:\Program Files\RSSoft\upgrade.txt
C:\Program Files\RSSoft\RSENDClient.exe
C:\Program Files\RSSoft\RSENDClinetUninstaller.exe
(SHOULD I JUST RUN THE UNINSTALLER AND IF THAT SOLVES EVERYTHING????)

When my sytem freezes, I hold down the power switch for 10 seconds then after system is shut down, i press it again. Booting can take time, and the Microsoft Error Rereproting messsage appears ..
RSENDClient.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. I usually send the error report, but have never got a reply from microsoft. In System Configuration Utility, Startup I see in the list RSENDClient.exe
So i have now unchecked the box and keep it on selective startup setting. (I'm guessing this will not call the file at startup). How can i completely delete this .exe from the startup?
Error signature:
AppName: rsendclient.exe
AppVer 0.0.0.0
ModName: Clientcorelib-1.913-621.dll
ModVer 1.0.0.1
Offset 000ac081\

Yesterday, I've installed The Zone Labs firewall. (previously had the build in windows one). (I have windows unpdates and Norton antivirus updates running .. also of note, sometimes, when booting I get a message small windows message that the norton antivirus protection is switched off, then it comes on in a short while.) However, once yesterday, after installing the Zone labs firewall, I rebooted with the normal startup setting .. and the zone labs firewall didn't come up as fast as normal. When it did, i noticed that in Outbound protection, the number of programs secured for internet access jumped from a previous of about 8 to about 56! So, i think that now my firewall may have holes in it! I did not give permission for these 56 programs!
I scanned with Spybot earlier yesterday ( before installing firewall). It picked up Red Swooch and said it had fixed it. But when i run a scan now, it doesn't pick it up.
MacFee Stinger hung when it scanned a file c:\\windows\prefetch

Trend micro returned errors and could not initiate a scan, even after i enabled Java runtiime.

The following is the log file from the HijackThis scan.
(I will reboot again, and let it call the RSENDClient.exe at startup, then scan again and post the log file again).
Please help me.
Thanks
John

I rebooted and let it run the RSENDClient.exe at startup.
the firewall gave me a Suspicious behavoir message:
DrWatson Postmortem Debugger is trying to communicate with
\systemRoot\system32\smss.exe
by opening it's process.
(I wasn't connected to the internet, but I guess this is local to my OS)
Maybe this is one of the Anti-virus or search for ad ware programs i have. Yesterday, as well as Spybot, i also installed Lavasoft Ad-Ware SE Personal

Anyway here is the Log file from the HijackThis scan i did after this reboot
Thanks again
John
by the way, logged onto the net now, ZoneAlarm has been blocking TONS of Internet Access to my computer .. like crazy .. hundreds while i've been doing this scan and writing this message .. I don't think i get that much activity if i boot in selective mode and don't let it call the RSENDClient.exe at startup
I'm new to this, so these are just my speculations .. not an expert.

Hello Irish_John,

Name: [Red Swoosh EDN Client]
File: RSEDNClient.exe

Red Swoosh - mechanism used by web sites to allow you to download files from those sites quicker and more efficiently. They automatically update the software and share non-personally identifiable information with others in the network



Let's run Ewido Anti Malware and see what it finds. :thumbsup:

I recommend that you download and use CCleaner prior to scanning with Ewido in order to speed up the scan by removing all the temp/junk files.

Download CCleaner and install it. (default location is best). Do not run it yet!

CCleaner Tutorial

Note: We will be deleting all temp files. Before using CCleaner, make sure you do not have any files in the Temp folder that you want to keep. If so, then move them to another folder.

Let's empty the temp files:

Run CCleaner.

1. Starting with v1.27.260, CCleaner installs the Yahoo Toolbar as an option which IS checkmarked by default during the installation.
IF you do NOT want it, REMOVE the checkmark when provided with the option OR download the toolbarfree Basic version instead of the Standard Build.


2. Before first use, select Options > Advanced and UNCHECK "Only delete files in Windows Temp folder older than 48 hours"

3. Then select the items you wish to clean up.

In the Windows Tab:
ē Clean all entries in the "Internet Explorer" section including Cookies.
ē Clean all the entries in the "Windows Explorer" section.
ē Clean all entries in the "System" section.
ē Clean all entries in the "Advanced" section.
ē Clean any others that you choose.

In the Applications Tab:
ē Clean all cookies in the Firefox/Mozilla section if you use it.
ē Clean all in the Opera section if you use it.
ē Clean Sun Java in the Internet Section.
ē Clean any others that you choose.

4. Click the "Run Cleaner" button.
5. A pop up box will appear advising this process will permanently delete files from your system.
6. Click "OK" and it will scan and clean your system.
7. Click "exit" when done.

If it asks you to reboot at the end, click NO.

CCleaner should be run with the above settings for each User Account!

*******************************************

Please download Ewido Anti Malware it is a trial version of the program.
  • Install ewido anti malware
  • Launch ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop double-click it.
    uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu"
  • The program will now go to the main screen
You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.
  • On the left hand side of the main screen click update
  • Then click on Start Update
The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
If you are having problems with the updater, you can use this link to manually update Ewido.
Ewido manual updates

Once the updates are installed do the following:
  • Please reboot your computer in SafeMode by doing the following:
    Restart your computer
    After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
    Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
    Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.
  • Click on Ewido Anti Malware icon to open it
  • Click on scanner
  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • While the scan is in progress, you will be prompted to clean the first infected file it finds.
    Choose Remove, then put a check next to 'Perform action on all infections' in the the box.
    Doing this, enables the scan to proceed automatically until its completion.
    Click OK
  • Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
  • Click Save report.
  • Save the report .txt file to your desktop.
Now close Ewido Anti Malware.

Note: Ewido is a great program but it does use some resources. Once the trial is over you can update and use the scanner for as long as you wish, but unless you purchase it you should turn it off completely so it does not run unless you start it manually.

***********************************

You have a suspicious file we need to check.

You will need to configure Windows to show Hidden files.

Go to Jotti Online File Scanner copy and paste C:\Program Files\yojijukugo\Screen Saver\TaskTray.exe to the upload and scan it.

Let me know the results.
Copy and paste the output to this thread

It should look something like this sample:

File: GoogleToolbarInstaller.exe
Status: MIGHT BE INFECTED/MALWARE (Sandbox emulation took a long time and/or runtime packers were found, this is suspicious. Normally programs aren't packed and don't force the sandbox into lengthy emulation. Do realize no scanner issued any warning, the file can very well be harmless. Caution is advised, however.)
Packers detected: CEXE

AntiVir No viruses found (0.15 seconds taken)
Avast No viruses found (1.51 seconds taken)
BitDefender No viruses found (0.97 seconds taken)
ClamAV No viruses found (0.39 seconds taken)
Dr.Web No viruses found (0.52 seconds taken)
F-Prot Antivirus No viruses found (0.06 seconds taken)
Kaspersky Anti-Virus No viruses found (0.74 seconds taken)
mks_vir No viruses found (0.21 seconds taken)
NOD32 No viruses found (0.42 seconds taken)
Norman Virus Control No viruses found (0.40 seconds taken


***********************************

I see that you are running msconfig in /auto mode which means that you may have selectively removed some items in the past from the startup procedure.

This can be bad if they are malware, so we would like you to reenable those startup entries by doing the following:

Please click on start, then run, and type msconfig and then press enter. When the window opens click on the startup tab and make sure there are checkmarks in every entry. Then press ok until you are out of the program.
If it asks to reboot, do not reboot. It is not necessary to reboot to get the items to show up in HijackThis.



Please post the report .txt from Ewido, the Jotti Scan output, and a fresh Hijackthis log.

Thanks Sifu Mike for your help..
I thing I have cleaned up things now ..

I posted 3 times before your post. In the first one, the hijackthis log was running msconfig in auto mode. I was running in this mode because I did notice the call to RSENDCleint in the startup, so I unchecked it. In my second post and third posts, the hijackthis logs were taken from a normal startup, so you can see the line
O16 - DPF: {FF0C042C-98E9-4C36-B2EC-E21FDFDCEF75} (InstallCtl Class) - http://download.redswoosh.net/Installer/113/rssoft.cab

Since posting that, I went ahead myself, checked this in the hijackthis scan and then clicked on fixed checked. That seems to have worked.



Following your post, I have now installed and run ccleaner. It is an easy to use and powerful tool. And I ran the Ewido scan. It came up clean.

C:\Program Files\yojijukugo\Screen Saver\TaskTray.exe
This is just a Japanese screen saver Iíve been running for a long time. Iím pretty sure it is clean. I've upload it to Jotti. It says status clean.

Below are: the report.txt from Ewido, Jotti results and a fresh Hijackthis log.
There are still many things I donít understand in my startup. Please have a glance at it and if you see anything else suspicious, let me know.

Overall, I think I have a clean system again. Thanks so much.

Hello Irish_John,

We can remove a couple of items to make your computer load faster. :thumbsup:


Open Hijackthis, click Scan, then place a check next to this entry:

The following are not necessarily spyware/malware, but I suggest you place a check mark next to the following entries, as these programs may be taking up system resources.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SunJavaUpdateSched] C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_07\bin\jusched.exe
(Description: Sun Java update scheduler. Checks for updates. Not necessary. Removing this entry will free up a small amount of system resources.)

O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OSA.EXE
(Description: Microsoft Office startup assistant. Not necessary. Removing this entry will free up a significant amount of system resources.)

and press Fix Checked.

Run CCleaner.

Finally reboot normally and post a new log here. Also let me know how is your computer running now.
If I've saved you time & money,
please make a donation so I can keep helping people just like you! You can donate using a credit card and PayPal. Thank you!

Hi again,
thanks, i've removed those two ..
I've also been doing some house cleaning, removing programs i never use, including windows components (the pre-installed games for example) .. Freed up lots and lots of gigs. I've also switched to firefox. I removed explorer (using Add / Remove programs in the control panel) from the Add/Remove Windows components. However it still seems to be running, (see the R0 and R1 entries in the log file below). Should i take these out. I presume i can undo and add it again using the Add / Remove as above if i want to browse with it in the future.

My system is running much faster now. I am confident it is in good shape. Now, apart from internet, I will be mostly using it for practicing programming languages (hence I removed most unused programs) I now have Borland C++, and Java compilers installed and working. I am looking at the .net requirements for visual studio. And I am looking at installing VMWare, then installing and learning to use Red Hat.

Here's the latest hijackthis log file...
Please advise how i can completely disable explorer.exe

Also it says these files are missing, so should i take em out too.

Just to clarify, i mean i removed Internet Explorer from the windows components, and by simply checking the box I can add it again. (Control Panel, Add / Remove, Windoows components) ... but even with it removed like that, i guess it is still running.
My question is can iexplorer be completely disabled.

Hello John,

Also it says these files are missing, so should i take em out too.
O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {85d1f590-48f4-11d9-9669-0800200c9a66} - %windir%\bdoscandel.exe (file missing)
O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Uninstall BitDefender Online Scanner v8 - {85d1f590-48f4-11d9-9669-0800200c9a66} - %windir%\bdoscandel.exe (file missing)
O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {CD67F990-D8E9-11d2-98FE-00C0F0318AFE} - (no file)


Yes, you can fix the above with Hijackthis. Those are not malware, just cleanup. :thumbsup:

I see another item that you can determine to fix or leave alone.

If this Domain does not belong to your Internet Service Provider, or your firms network, these entries should be fixed.
Do you know the Internet Provider or Domain '202.96.209.6 202.96.209.133'? If not, fix this entry.

O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{2BA4FB97-C86A-475C-960A-ABD9E248A624}: NameServer = 202.96.209.6 202.96.209.133

I looked up the address and found:

202.96.209.6 = [ ns-pxb.online.sh.cn ]
inetnum: 202.96.192.0 - 202.96.255.255
netname: CHINANET-SH
descr: CHINANET Shanghai province network
descr: Data Communication Division
descr: China Telecom country: CN




Just to clarify, i mean i removed Internet Explorer from the windows components, and by simply checking the box I can add it again. (Control Panel, Add / Remove, Windoows components) ... but even with it removed like that, i guess it is still running.
My question is can iexplorer be completely disabled.



The good news is that you can disable IE and move to a different browser.
The bad news is that you cannot remove IE without crippling your operating system and that many sites only work with IE. :flowers:

Before you disable Internet Explorer remember, even though the automatic update feature in Windows XP is not affected Microsoft does require IE in order to manually use their Windows Update website.
Also, disabling IE does not remove it, which means the updates provided by Windows Update will still need to be installed.

Malware removal is may specialty, not IE, so this question should be directed to one of our other forums.



Lets clean your System Restore points and set a new one:

Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows.
The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs from changing those files.
This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected)

1. Turn off System Restore.

On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK

2. Restart your computer.

3. Turn ON System Restore.

On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

System Restore will now be active again.

Please read and follow Groovicus' Guide to Simple PC Security to help keep yourself from becoming infected again. :huh:

Hi again...

Update:
(note: I have been creating new backup points and deleting old ones as I go along.)
My computer did sneeze once since, showing some of the previous symptoms. At start-up it was busy. The internet connection tap in the start-up menu was absent. And when I did connect, it hung. Suspecting re-infection, Iíve been nursing it in intensive care, watching it carefully and educating my self along the way. Iím on a steep learning curve here.
As it turns out, I cannot find anything, either by running the various anti-malware software, by analysis of hijackthis or by watching all communications coming in and going out.
My system seems to be fine now. Maybe it was conflicting software and messed up registry entries that caused the above sneeze. In particular, I noticed in the event viewer (control panel, administration tools), that Norton updater caused alot of errors. (I have now completely removed Norton).

Anyhow,
Here is a description of whatís running on my system now, comments/questions and a copy of the latest hijackthis log.

On my system, I am now running:
Avast anti-virus, ZoneLabs free firewall, and windows defender.
http://www.avast.com/
http://www.zonelabs.com
I have firefox and Maxton
http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/
http://www.maxthon.com/
I also have:
spywareblaster, a-squared (not running background guard), spybot search and destroy, ad-ware se personal (free version) and ewido anti-malware(realtime protection off). These I regularly manually update. And I have MacAfee stinger and bookmarks to house call, bit defender, pandasoft and Jottiís online scan.
http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/download/
http://www.safer-networking.org/en/spybotsd/index.html
http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download/
http://www.ewido.net/en/download/
http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/
http://be.trendmicro-europe.com/consumer/h...call_launch.php
http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/ac...can/ascan_6.asp
http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html
http://virusscan.jotti.org/

Moreover, I have the following tools:
HijackThis, ccleaner, regcleaner, a-squared hijackfree, regprot, registryfix, port explorer.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/files/hijackthis_sfx.php
http://www.ccleaner.com/
http://www.worldstart.com/weekly-download/...-cleaner4.3.htm
http://www.diamondcs.com.au/index.php?page=regprot
http://www.diamondcs.com.au/portexplorer/i...p?page=download
http://www.registryfix.com/
Iíve just downloaded Task manager and Register booster (strangely no problems downloading here). Not free though I just have the trials.
http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/index.html
http://www.liutilities.com/products/campaigns/plib/rbplib/6/

Now if all this doesnít protect me, Iím going to throw my hat at microsoft and install redhat!

Comments / questions about the above:
1 Ewido anti-malware You said if I didnít register it, I should completely disable it, as it takes system resourses. I have realtime protection and automatic updates inactive. Is this enough. I see in haijackthis that it is still running. C:\Program Files\ewido anti-malware\ewidoctrl.exe

2 When I ran regprot first, it went through the registry values that have been changed, all of which I verified with the software explorer from windows defender, control panel..... except for the following
HKEY = HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
PATH = vbsfile\shell\open\command
NAME =
DATA = %System Root%\System 32\WScript.exeĒ%|Ē%*
Just like that.

3 RegistryFix. Doing a scan with it says there are some 227 problems in my registry. I donít want to play around too much with it. Kinna dangerous, since I donít know enough about the reg file. Problems are: Start-up programs 1 problem; classes section 71 problems; application paths, 6 problems; help files, 1 problem; shared program files, 8 problems; windows fonts, 5 problems; Program ID section, 25 problems; File associations 6 problems; complete registry scan, 105 problems; invalid shortcut, 1 problem.
For example, the 1 problem in startup programs,
RegKey: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft|Windows|CurrentVersion\Run
ValueName: KernelFaultCheck
Value: %System root%system32\dumpprep0-k
The file (%System root%system32\dumpprep0-k) does not exist at the specific location.
3.a Can you recommended registry fix softwear?

4 Asquared said that Key:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\ext\stats\
{56a7dc70-e102-4408-a34a-ae06fef01586} is malicious. So I told it to delete it. I hope it wasnít important.

5 Port Explorer, I find this easy to use and useful. But I must admit I donít know much yet about exactly how my computer connects to the internet. In particular, is it normal, that I have my LAN assigned an IP address, (169.254.*.*) which if I resolve it says itís my computer, and itís in America. I did not establish this! Should I have this LAN at all? The IPís you see in the hijackthis are for my ISP here in Shanghai. But monitoring Port Explorer, I do not see anything suspicious, except that I donít know if my LAN set-up is normal.

6 TRUEVECTOR, Internet monitor vsmon.exe, this is from Zone alarm. I think.
My internet browsing is fine now, but I have problems downloading. I have a high speed connection which used to download fast. Says 10 mbs/sec on the connection tab. But now, sometimes it wonít even download at all, the download window on the screen says the download rate is down to something stupidly slow like a few bytes per second! This is just recently, for example, I cannot download the zonelabs free firewall anymore, (have it anyway) And cannot do an online housecall scan.
I looked at the activity on Port Explorer, while trying to download, and it seems that vsmon.exe is constantly kicking in. Could this be choking my bandwidth? Nothing else is downloading. I have a log file for the vsmon.exe, and other port explorer logs which I can forward to you if you like.

7 Hijackthis, in the services, I see that avast has a lot of files missing. I uninstalled and re-installed it once. I guess this is why the files are missing. Should I worry about these services missing files? Should I reinstall it again? It did tell me installing that there was a problem running with Zone Lab firewall and so i should click the box to disable "WebShield transparent proxy mode". Maybe this causes the service files to be absent.


8. I am moving back to Ireland in a month. The original CDís I got when I bought this computer are back there. I uninstall and reinstall everything and then add the various software again. But if I do that, should I go online without the Microsoft OS patches and download them, or have to buy an upgrade off the shelf, which will include all the patches? Or can I take copies of them off my system before uninstalling .. if i can find them all.
Thanks, John

Hi,
[quote]Task manager and Register booster (strangely no problems downloading here). Not free though I just have the trials.[/quote]

There is a better Task Manager free replacment available by Sysinternals called Process Explorer. It is like a Task Manager on steriods and provides far more useful informaion. :huh:

[quote]1. Ewido anti-malware You said if I didnít register it, I should completely disable it, as it takes system resourses. I have realtime protection and automatic updates inactive. Is this enough. I see in haijackthis that it is still running. C:\Program Files\ewido anti-malware\ewidoctrl.exe[/quote]

Yes, it is enough. I would uninstall Ewido as you are done using it.
You can always reinstall if you think you need it for malware removal. Ewido is a good tool to use when you have a diffuclt to remove malware, and other tools have failed.

You should have only one registry protector on your computer. Many of the anti malware programs offer a registry protector (A2 has A2guard, Ewdio has EwdioGuard, Spybot has Teatimer, Ad-Aware Plus has Ad-Watch, Windows Defender has Real-time Protection etc.)
I use Spybot TeaTimer, but the choice is really up to you.


[quote]3.a Can you recommended registry fix softwear?[/quote]

Sorry, that I cant do. :thumbsup:
In the hands of inexperienced users, they could cause irreparable damage to the Operating System, and render their computer inoperable.
There are many registry fixers available, and I do not like non techies changing the registry. Its just too risky!
Change the wrong key and your computer may not boot.
If you decide to install one anyway, make sure you back up the entire registry before you do a registry fix, and know where the restore file is located.

Nope, it is not important. It is Spyware.HDTBar

[quote]5 Port Explorer, I find this easy to use and useful. But I must admit I donít know much yet about exactly how my computer connects to the internet. In particular, is it normal, that I have my LAN assigned an IP address, (169.254.*.*) which if I resolve it says itís my computer, and itís in America. I did not establish this! Should I have this LAN at all? The IPís you see in the hijackthis are for my ISP here in Shanghai. But monitoring Port Explorer, I do not see anything suspicious, except that I donít know if my LAN set-up is normal.[/quote]

My expertise is malware removal. Please ask you question at our AntiVirus, Firewall and Privacy Products and Protection Methods forum or Windows forum


[quote]6 TRUEVECTOR, Internet monitor vsmon.exe, this is from Zone alarm. I think.
My internet browsing is fine now, but I have problems downloading. I have a high speed connection which used to download fast. Says 10 mbs/sec on the connection tab. But now, sometimes it wonít even download at all, the download window on the screen says the download rate is down to something stupidly slow like a few bytes per second! This is just recently, for example, I cannot download the zonelabs free firewall anymore, (have it anyway) And cannot do an online housecall scan.
I looked at the activity on Port Explorer, while trying to download, and it seems that vsmon.exe is constantly kicking in. Could this be choking my bandwidth? Nothing else is downloading. I have a log file for the vsmon.exe, and other port explorer logs which I can forward to you if you like.[/quote]

For this question I will have to refer you to AntiVirus, Firewall and Privacy Products and Protection Methods, as they are the experts on firewalls.
I know that the vsmon.exe is a processs associated with the ZoneAlarm personal firewall. It is used to monitor Internet traffic and generate alerts depending on the security rules configured by the user.

I would not worry about the two Avast 023's as both are in your running processes which means they are active and running. Looks like a bug in Hijackthis. :flowers:

[quote]Ignore any 023 reference to avast processes, this is a hiccup in the HJT 1.99.1 especially missing file entry for avast.

If they were missing the web shield and internet mail providers wouldn't be working, you can easily confirm they aren't missing by loking for them.[/quote]

A bug in Hijackthis. :huh: msgrapp.dll is often incorrectly listed by HijackThis as missing.


[quote]8. I am moving back to Ireland in a month. The original CDís I got when I bought this computer are back there. I uninstall and reinstall everything and then add the various software again. But if I do that, should I go online without the Microsoft OS patches and download them, or have to buy an upgrade off the shelf, which will include all the patches? Or can I take copies of them off my system before uninstalling .. if i can find them all.[/quote]

After the uninstall and reinstall, go online and download all the latest patches from MS.

Just make sure you do this first, before you begin surfing the Internet.

Hi
I have Process Explorer now. Thanks. Good article in PC World too.
And the registry fixing software has been locked away. I donít trust it or myself to mess with the registry for now. Will come back to it in a year or so.

[quote] You should have only one registry protector on your computer [\quote]
Ewido, spybot and regprot are gone .. .. but have copies if ever needed again.
Iíll run windows defender for now .. (can I trust it) I guess if I keep spybot, then I must turn off defender, right? Could I just disable the registry protector in defender and keep spybot then too?
Soooooooooo, correct me if Iím wrong,
but I think I can keep the free versions of ad-ware se personal and A2. The background guard is not enabled in A2. I must manually download updates. Ad-ware and A2 do not show up in running processes .. so I am guessing they do not have a registry protector running (have to upgrade for that). Right?

In short, am I ok with the combo. of defender, avast, zone labs .. with dormant a2 and ad-aware se personal manually updated and manually run.
In future, I may change this to: spybot, avast, zone labs .. (with windows defender registry protector disabled).

I think thatís me sorted on the mal-ware hunt. So you can probably close this thread after replying to above.
I will move on to the other forums with my vsmon and LAN settings questions.
If I come across any mal-ware files in future, Iíll post a new tread.

Thanks a million. Keep up the good work
John.

oh, can i remove the DFP's for symantec .. i have now uninstalled norton anti virus.

You log is clean. :thumbsup:

In short, am I ok with the combo. of defender, avast, zone labs .. with dormant a2 and ad-aware se personal manually updated and manually run.
In future, I may change this to: spybot, avast, zone labs .. (with windows defender registry protector disabled).


That sounds good. :flowers: I am assuming you are using defender now as your registry protector. Be sure to update all your antispware programs weekly.

You might want to add SpywareBlaster, as it prevents spyware from running.
It runs in the background and prevent spyware from running.
Download it here: http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
