Have you had any problems with viruses or spyware recently? Have you fixed them?

If so, this may be a broken link to the bad program. A google for the file doesn't give any results - which makes me suspicious.

Just in case, try this free, online scan: http://safety.live.com/ and let us know the results.

Then we can start looking for what's calling this file and hopefully can eliminate it.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Thanks John. I'm running that now and will post whatever I find. I did have a problem with my computer. It all started with me installing Norton's Antivirus 2006 a couple of weeks ago. I had so many popups and problems with computer speed that I uninstalled it and tried AVG's free antivirus download. It's been terrible since then. I've apparently lost my ActiveX controls, my Java Environment (?) etc..and it seems that you must have one to download the other? Thanks again for your help. Looks like it might be a while, so I'll post the results tomorrow. Janice

O.K., I finally got the scan to run all the way through! There are alot of problems. Number 1 being: Trojan Downloader Win32/Clagger.G. I cannot copy the list, to paste it here, for some reason. Also, after uninstalling NAV I was unable to reinstall it. I got an error message every time. Can't install the other free ones mentioned here, either due to the Java and ActiveX problems. Any help w/where to begin would be much appreciated. Thank you so much!

You can download Sun Microsystem's Java at the following link:
http://www.java.com/en/download/index.jsp

Active X can be downloaded using Windows Updates.
You need both.

Without Active X you cannot get Windows Critical Updates aqnd Sun's Java ap is better than Microsoft's.

You need to get rid of the malware that is infesting your computer.

Run The Windows OneCare Free Scan (on-line scan)
To run the Windows One Care Free Scan
Go to Windows Live Onecare Free Scan site using Internet Explorer.
It will say "Get a free PC safety scan"
http://safety.live.com/site/en-us/default.htm

Make sure you click "Full Service Scan" in the middle of the page and
not the "Try It Now Free" offer on the right side.

Allow the download of an Active X component.
Choose "Complete Scan" in the window that opens
Click "Next"
Do not click on anything else that offers you a free trial or to sign up if you live in the US.

Allow it to scan - it may take quite a while, possibly two hours or so depending on the size of your hard drive is and how fragmented your registry and drive may be.

After completing the Windows OneCare Free Scan run both Adaware and Spybot Search and Destroy from safe mode, updating each program’s malware definitions before you reboot into safe mode to scan and allowing both to fix what they find.

If you do not already have these freeware aps installed on your computer, you can get them at the following sites:

*AdAware SE:
http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html

*Spybot S&D:
http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html

Following that that I suggest you post a “HijackThis” log in the “Hijack This” Logs and Analysis Forum for expert assistance with your malware infection.

Read the pinned post in our “HijackThis Logs and Analysis” forum,
here
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/
Carefully read and follow all directions carefully.

Following the instructions create a HJT log, and POST THE HJT LOG THAT YOU CREATED IN OUR HJT LOGS AND ANALYSIS FORUM – not in this forum,
at this link.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/posthjtlog.html
Include the specs for your computer (i.e., what processor, amount of RAM, brand or motherboard, etc, and briefly describe the problem you are experiencing.)

Unless you are expert at editing the registry, Do not use the Hijack This program to try to fix anything by yourself as even what may seem to be a small mistake can render your operating system inoperable.
Some files when in the correct folder for them may be fine while in another may be malware hiding.


A member of our expert HJT Team will analyze your log, make recommendations and offer assistance, walking you through the complete repair process.

It may take a short period of time to get a response to the log you posted because the members of our HJT Team are kept very busy.
Posting your Hijack This log anywhere but in the Hijack This Logs and Analysis forum will delay their response as it will require a moderator to move the log there before the HJT Team will see it and it will fall behind other logs posted after yours was posted, so be sure to post your log in the Hijack This Logs and Analysis forum.

Please be patient as this team is manned by volunteers. They will help you in order received as soon as possible.

NOTE
Once you have posted your HJT log, please DO NOT make any additional posts in the HJT Logs and Analysis forum thread you created until you get a response from a member of our HJT expert team, and do not make any additional changes to your system (changes, including any attempted repairs, will make your computer to be different than as represented in the log you posted and therefore make your log inaccurate).

The first criteria the HJT Team has when looking for logs that need replies are posts showing 0 replies. If you make an additional post, it will show as having had 1 reply.
A team member, looking for a new log that requires help might well assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and might not open the thread to respond.

So, post your HJT Log in our HJT Forum (not here in this forum) and wait for a response from a HJT team member.

After you post your log, please do not make any changes to your computer. Discontinue trying to delete anything with any program as changes will make your HJT log obsolete and waste valuable time spent by our HJT experts analyzing the log made inaccurate by changes and therefore their plan formulated to address the problems will also be obsolete.

If after 5 days you still have gotten no response, then post a re-request and a link to your HJT log HERE.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic14717.html

Make sure you post your HJT log in the HJT forum, not here, because if you post it here in this forum the response from our HJT Team will be delayed because the post will have to be moved before they see it and it will fall in line behind many others posted that same day.

I've tried the place you posted the link to for the Java download when this problem began, and I just tried it again. I get the error message: Error applying transforms. Verify that the specified transform paths are valid.

Also, I ran the free online scan. To download it I needed the Active X control, and I clicked yes to allow it to be installed but it would not install. I then chose the free scan that did not need to be downloaded and it worked after freezing up 10 times. Thanks again.

Well, what were the results of the scan?

The next step is to download Hijack This and post your log as explained in my previous post.

Come back here once they determine your system is clean and we will address the other issues.

As for the adaware scan and spybot scan, I run them constantly and always come up w/new problems.

Ok, got the Java and the ActiveX!! :thumbsup: Thank you for your help. I went to the Microsoft page, found out that I don't have a 'valid' copy of windowsxp. I had been trying to 'get help validating' my windows in order to download updates. This time I went to the 'show me the updates ANYWAY' page..and got all the updates. It seems to have fixed my ActiveX problem. I was then able to download the Java from the link you posted. Many thanks. Now I'm off to fix more stuff. I will post the HJT log in the HJT forum, I promise. Janice

It sounds as if this bugger has done it's damage! Here's a link that describes it: http://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/virusin...s.aspx?ID=49987

I'd suggest:
1) Unplug your internet connection when not actually using it. This will prevent the thing from calling for more stuff on the web.
2) Do the HiJackThis log as Enthusiast suggested - that'll help to remove it from your system. Don't mess with your system while the HJT log is being worked on - it will make the infection harder to detect and get rid of.
3) After the HJT log is done, come back here for some more advice on how to prevent this in the future.
