Hello Gutsi and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I do not see anything out of the ordinary in the log. All of the processes running are legitimate processes.

I am curious about 1 item and would like to have it checked out at Jotti's.

We need to make sure all hidden files are showing so please:
  • Click Start.
  • Open My Computer.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  • Select the View tab.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
  • Uncheck the Hide file extensions for known types option.
  • Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
  • Click Yes to confirm.
  • Click OK.
Go to the Jotti's malware scan page and use the buttons at the top of the page to browse to this file(s) on your hard drive to submit for a scan:C:\WINDOWS\rcss.exe
Several scanning engines will be used to check the file for any threats. Please post the results of the scans back here.


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.
