Hello, all. This is my first post on this site. I appreciate whatever help I can get. :thumbsup:


Okay, so here's what's going on: I was downloading some songs on Limewire (the program that touts "no trojans" in its downloads. hahahaha. Right.) Regardless, I always scan everything I download before executing a file. I downloaded a song and Symantec (Corporate version) gave me a popup saying a trojan had been detected (before I even took the time to scan it myself. Within minutes of song download). It was "trojan.wimad". Predictably, Symantec was unable to fix/remove the trojan, but it DID quarantine it.

What I am confused about is if I am infected even though I never opened the offending file? If Symantec detected it, then I would assume that it was doing something??? The only problems I've been having are somewhat frequent freezes (1-5x per day) and random shutdowns. It's never shut down while I was using it, but I have come back to my computer after several hours of inactivity and the tower is off. I switched my computer cord in case that was to blame. I'm somewhat sure it hasn't happened since, but it is still freezing.

I ran hijackthis!, and while I didn't see anything I could not identify, I'll post it anyway. I'm sure I skipped a few lines as it's somewhat hard to read on the screen. Also, not sure if it matters, but I use Mozilla Firefox, not IE. Here it is:

This computer was recently re-formatted, so I'm pretty sure I don't have any weird software conflicts.

Thanks, guys!

Hi and welcome to Bleeping Computer! My name is Sam and I will be helping you. :thumbsup:

Your log is clean. It sounds like Norton was doing it's job and got rid of the file before it became entrenched in your system. However you should know that Norton won't stop a lot of the stuff that going to come through Limewire.

The freezes and shutdowns sound like more of a hardware problem to me.

Failing to respond back to the person that is giving up their own time to help you not only is insensitive and disrespectful, but it guarantees that you will never receive help from me again. Please thank your helpers and there will always be help here when you need it!
