Posted 26 June 2006 - 09:40 AM

Having a few problems with my computer. One, I am getting emails that say my email has been rejected, but when I look at the details of the rejection, I never sent the email out. In fact, the address it was sent from isnt mine either, but some random name that doesnt even exist for my domain. My network usage is strange too, sometime during the day, it goes from being normal, almost a 1 to 1 ratio of up and down traffic, to being about 10 to 1 outgoing to incoming. I am also having trouble with data located on the server, a couple of my programs are sluggish, and Outlook is locking up with an error that it cannot save the pst file (also on the server). I know I am new to the bleepingcomputer community, but can someone please help me? I have done everything I know to try, have Norton, installed AVG 30 day trial, have Windows malware defender thing, ad-aware, registry mechanic, ran them all, fixed anything that came up, still having issues.

Here is my hijack log:

I am curious, is the lack of response on my topic due to a lack of threat on my computer? If so, why do I keep getting these emails saying that I have sent email that I know I have not sent myself? And why does my network traffic jump like crazy?

Here is an example delivery failure I got the other day:

Hello jcumbie and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I apologize for the delay but the forum is very busy and we take the oldest posts first.

I do not see anything out of the ordinary in the HijackThis log. Let's try a different scanner and see what it shows us.

Download WinPFind2.zip and unzip it into a folder of its own. Do NOT run the program directly from the zip file.
  • Go to the folder you unzipped WinPFind2 to and double-click on winpfind2.exe to start the program.
  • In the File Options box click the Select All button.
  • Then in the AddOn-Options box click the checkboxes for
    • BotCheck_Subs
    • HKCU_IEDesktop
    • Security
    to select them.
  • Now click the Run All Scans button on the toolbar. The file scans will take some time so be patient.
  • When the scans are complete click the Export To Text button in the lower right-hand corner to create a report file.
  • Open the winpfind2.txt file located in the folder that winpfind2 is running from in Notepad.
  • Click the Format menu and make sure that Wordwrap is not checked. If it is then click on it to uncheck it.
Copy and paste the contents of the winpfind2.txt file back here and I will review it when it comes in.


I do not respond to PM's requesting help. That's what the forums are here for. Please use them so that others may benefit from your questions and the responses you receive.
