I haven't had many symptoms, but something doesn't feel right about IE. It takes a long time to launch, and seems to slow down for no reason.

Ad-aware, Spybot and Defender didn't pick up on anything, but Ewido said there was something in C:\win\i386\wininet.dl_/wininet.dll that couldn't be removed without deleting the whole library, so I left it alone. Here's my log.

Hello Lifeseeker and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I see no signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.

The files in the i386 folder are the original XP installation files. They are backups and should be compressed (thus the wininet.dl_). There shouldnot be a wininet.dll file in that folder. If there is then it can be deleted.

You can check the wininet.dl_ file for infections at Jotti's by doing the following:

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:\win\i386\wininet.dl_
Several scanning engines will be used to check the file for any threats. If it does come back as infected then go ahead and delete that too. It will not be used for anything since that particular file has been updated many times since XP came out and a backup of the latest version should be in the drivers folder anyway.

Cheers.

OT

Thanks for your help OT. I'm clean. Guess I'm just getting paranoid in my old age.

Hi Lifeseeker. It never hurts to check things out. That's what we are here for :thumbsup:

I will now close this topic. If you have any new malware questions in the future please start a new topic.

Cheers and Happy Computing!
