I'm looking for help in figuring out which programs in my Zone Alarm Program Control list are malicious. I look at the list fairly frequently and lately there have been a lot of additions that I'm not familiar with. I've "killed" most of them, but one shut my compouter down when I killed it, so I figure from now on it's better to ask first before killing the program. I'm not looking to try and remove anything just yet. I'm really not tech savvy enough to try and do that. But if I can just stop them through Zone Alarm, that would be fine for now. I run Windows XP Home Edition, use Zone Alarm Pro, and Norton Anti-Virus. I also run Spybot Search & Destroy fairly regularly.

Any advice on one or more of these programs would be appreciated. Thank you!!

Looks like you may have a couple of malicious programs there.
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 Preparation Guide for use before posting 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.

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 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.

Thank you for your response. I'm sorry, but I'm new at this. I'm assuming that "Hijack This" is some sort of freeware or shareware? Where can I download it safely?

Thank you

DebraJess- if you follow the link for the Preparation Guide Before Posting A HijackThis Log, you will find a download link. Please make sure that you follow all of the steps of this; as it could help to remove some malicious files, prior to an expert helping you.
HijackThis is a program that scans your computer's registry, in locations where sypware and viruses are normally found. Please do not try to use this tool by yourself to fix your computer- there will be many legitimate entries in the log, which there is no need to remove.

If you are pleased with the service I have offered, you may like to consider making a donation. Posted Image
