I can tell that my PC has something wrong with it but I can't neccessarily pinpoint the problem. A bunch of strange, minor things happen like....

1) if I'm inside a folder and I have a item/file highlighted, it will sometimes refresh the folder automatically and un-highlight the item

2) If I try to go to Start>Control Panel>System>Advanced Tab> and click on the settings button in "User Profiles"....my PC glitches and freezes and everything starts to run really slow.

3) ever since 8-10 weeks ago, occasionaly when I have a few windows open, I hear 2 clicks coming out of my speaker. I can tell that it's not my speakers malfunctioning because it does the exact same thing when I wear my headphones.

I'm sure there are other things that aren't right. Like I said, there isn't any glaring evidence of having a serious virus but I'm convinced that something just isn't right.

BTW, I'm totally up-to-date with my Microsoft Updates, ewido-malware scans/defintions, Ad-Aware SE scans/definitions. I also use a few different Spyware programs and I also have AVG and Avast! I run virus scans daily. All in all, I have all the stuff to protect against any serious viruses/spyware. The thing is that I haven't always been this vigilant against viruses/adware/spyware/malware so it's possible that I could have picked something up a while back.

Anyway, here's my HJT log....any help is greatly appreciated.

Hello ReddFoxx,

Welcome to Bleeping Computer :thumbsup:

First you should know that you're actually doing more harm than good by running 2 Anti Virus programs. (AVG and Avast!) When you do this both programs compete for resources, and the end result is neither does it's best and can cause system instability. I recommend that you choose the one you want to keep, update it, disable the other one, and use it as an on demand only scan occasionally.

Before beginning, you may want to save these instructions to Notepad or print them out for easier reference.

Click start > controlpanel > add/remove Programs and uninstall the following, if present :

need2find

Download CWSshredder http://cwshredder.net/bin/CWShredder.exe. Close every window and disconnect from Internet. Double click the CWSshredder icon on your Desktop.
Click Fix, ok and then Next, let it fix everything it asks about.

Please run HijackThis! and click "Scan." Place checks next to the following entries, if present:

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = http://red.clientapps.yahoo.com/cust...//my.yahoo.com
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://red.clientapps.yahoo.com/cust...ch/search.html
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://red.clientapps.yahoo.com/cust.../www.yahoo.com
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = http://red.clientapps.yahoo.com/cust.../www.yahoo.com
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AlcxMonitor] ALCXMNTR.EXE
O8 - Extra context menu item: &Search - http://kl.bar.need2find.com/KL/menusearch.html?p=KL
O18 - Filter: text/html - {2AB289AE-4B90-4281-B2AE-1F4BB034B647} - (no file)


Close all browsers and other windows except for HijackThis!, and click "Fix Checked".

Also, search for and delete the following file:

ALCXMNTR.EXE

Reboot your computer.

Now open Ewido, click on the Scanner button in the left menu, then click on the Start button.
If ewido finds anything, it will pop up a notification. You can select "clean" and check the boxes "Perform action with all infections" and "Create encrypted backup" before clicking on OK.
When the scan finishes, click on "Save Report". This will create a text file.

Please paste the contents of the text file to this thread, along with a new HijackThis log. How is your computer running?

Thanks,
tea
