Anyone who might have some ideas about how to get rid of these bugs in my computer would be a lifesaver. I run XP, and they are located (at least one of the places they are located) is in c:/windows/prefetch. I have tried several things to get them out, including the following:

1) I got rid of all temp files in C:\ and C:\Windows.
2) I got rid of all files in C:\windows\prefetch
3) started up in safe mode (several times) and ran the following software each (reboot in between): Windows Defender, Spybot S&D, and Spysweeper.
4) Rebooted in normal mode, and ran Trend Micro Antispyware scan. Also tried to run Ewido, but the computer would not cooperate.

While it would appear that I got rid of some other stuff, these two items still remain. I have Zone Alarm that asks me if I want to run the software, and I always say no, but it bogs down the machine before too long, and when I go to shut down, I have many, many instances of both of these programs poping up for me to close with a message saying they were unable to initialize.

Any suggestions???

Thanks!

I can't find anything on those 2 programs.
I suggest you post a HijackThis log for examination.
A member of the HijackThis Team will walk you through, step by step, how to disinfect your computer.
Once you post your log, don't make any changes to your system, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.

Read How to post a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully!!!

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, as these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

NOTE:
Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.
