Scaned with hijackthis, but the log looks fine (to me anyway)
HijackThis is an advanced tool
that requires advanced knowledge about the Windows Operating System. Most of the log entries are required
to run a computer and removing essential ones can potentially cause serious damage
such as your Internet no longer working or problems with running Windows itself.
HijackThis is an enumerator and similar in some respects to a registry editor program which displays areas of the Windows registry where the majority of Viruses, Trojans, Spyware, Adware, and Malware reside. HJT will scan certain areas of your system and then create a log to help diagnose the presence of undetected malware in these known hiding places. It then relies on experts to interpret the log entries
and determine what needs to be fixed.
And just because you "fixed
" something with HJT, that does not mean you have a clean system. The "Fix" button in HJT does NOT remove the malware
but rather it removes the associated registry entry. There are specific files and folders which must be deleted afterwards. HJT does NOT delete them.
Futher, removing entries in HJT before the problem is properly identified can make the malware undetectable to other detection and removal tools
. Full system scanning tools like Ad-aware, Spybot S&D and SpySweeper will remove the registry entries as well as the related files which results in a more complete removal process. HJT this should only be used to clean up the entries left behind, after you have properly removed the malware.
If you do not have advanced knowledge about computers you should NOT fix anything using HijackThis
without consulting a expert as to what to fix. If you choose to fix anything by yourself, you do so at your own risk
