Hi there:

I'm not entirely sure if HJT is the right avenue by which to solve my computer woes... Opening applications, or windows are not a problem. Closing them, the window disappears by about 1/4 of the window at a time for about 3 or 4 seconds. I recently ran spybot and deleted a bunch of junk, and I also ran Reg Mechanic which fixed a bunch of other junk. I keep getting ping and echo requests from various IPs (detected through Zone Alarm - Free Version). I just uninstalled a peer2peer app 'iMesh', but keep getting pings (about 50 per day). I also keep getting spyware re-installing themselves (I can't think of all of them off the top of my head, but can provide if necessary). Please take a look at my HJT log and tell me what you think.

Thanks!
BTW, does anyone know whether ptsnoop.exe is actually a genuinely needed program??? I removed it before as well and it still pops up.

Do you have a PCTel modem ?

If yes, ptsnoop.exe is a part of the PCTel configuration tool for their brand of PCI modems.

It could be also a trojan...
Everyday is virus day. Do you know where your recovery CDs are ?
Did you create them yet ?

I have an onboard modem, but I actually use a cable modem for internet. So, the utility might not really be needed. I will never use my onboard modem...

Should I somehow try and delete it??? How could I tell if it is a legit utility or not?!?

Thanks :thumbsup:
