Hello everyone,

I've been having many problems with my laptop. When I click on something, it takes sometimes up to 3-4 minutes for it to process and whenever I try to shut it down or restart it lots of dialog boxes pop up asking me to end processes now because they are not responding.

I tried to follow all the steps before running the Hijack This log but it's frustrating being on my computer for more than fifteen minutes because it usually freezes and then I have to start all over again! Please help! I was able to install and run Spybot S&D, and I already have Spyware Doctor and ran that. Thank you to anyone who can help me. Here is my Hijack This log:

You may want to print this page. Make sure to work through the fixes in the order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes.

Step 1

You are using more than one antivirus programs and more than one firewall. Please read the information below.

The entries below indicate that you have two antivirus programs, Trend Micro OfficeScan Antivirus and Mcafee VirusScan, on your computer.

C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\OfficeScan Client\pccntmon.exe Trend Micro OfficeScan Antivirus real-time scan monitor
O3 - Toolbar: McAfee VirusScan - {BA52B914-B692-46c4-B683-905236F6F655} Ė c:\progra~1\mcafee.com\vso\mcvsshl.dll


When you have more than one antivirus running at the same time, they conflict with each other rendering the computer vulnerable or unusable. It may even cause crashes. Please review this information:
Should you run more than one antivirus program at the same time?
Microsoft recommends that you have only one anti-virus program installed on your computer.
There are basically two types of antivirus programs:
On-Access and On-Demand
On-Access Scanners
As the name implies, it runs in the background all the time the PC is turned on and running. The main function of an on-access scanner is to monitor activity on your machine.
On-Demand Scanners
As the name implies, are scanners that only run when you ask them to.
Such as: Online Scans and scanners that run on your machine but are not actively scanning your machine

Antivirus programs take up an enormous amount of your computer's resources when they are actively scanning your computer. Having two antivirus programs running at the same time can cause your computer to run very slow, become unstable and even, in rare cases, crash. I notice that you are using more than one antivirus program. This is very dangerous, as multiple antivirus programs can interfere with one another and actually allow MORE viruses to get through. Running two antivirus programs at the same time could lead to both of them trying to scan the same file at the same time, scan the same email at the same time and so on which could lead to conflicts. I strongly suggest you either (1) configure only one antivirus program to enable automatic realtime scanning and leave the rest disabled most of the time, or (2) go to Start -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs and uninstall all but one antivirus program.

The following HijackThis entries indicate that you are using more than one firewall, OfficeScanNT Personal Firewall and McAfee Personal Firewall Service.

O23 - Service: McAfee Personal Firewall Service (MpfService) - McAfee Corporation Ė C:\PROGRA~1\McAfee.com\PERSON~1\MpfService.exe
O23 - Service: OfficeScanNT Personal Firewall (OfcPfwSvc) - Trend Micro Inc. - C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\OfficeScan Client\OfcPfwSvc.exe


Running multiple software firewalls is unnecessary for typical home computers, home networking, and small-business networking scenarios. Using two firewalls on the same connection could cause issues with connectivity to the Internet or other unexpected behavior. One firewall, whether it is the Windows XP Internet Connection Firewall or a different software firewall, can provide substantial protection for your computer. Microsoft specifically says not to use more than one firewall, because it can result in some programs not working correctly. There's even a Help and Support Center topic in XP SP2 called Why you should only use one firewall. In any event, having two firewalls running simultaneously is most certainly an unnecessary drain on system resources. I strongly suggest you remove one of the firewalls. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs and uninstall all but one firewall.

Step 2

We need to disable your Spyware Doctor as it may interfere with the fixes that we need to make.
  • If there is an OnGuard icon in the lower right task bar, right click on the icon and disable OnGuard or from within the program, Spyware Doctor, click the OnGuard button on the left side and uncheck Activate OnGuard .
  • Leave OnGuard inactivated or disabled until your computer is clean.
Be sure to activate OnGuard when your computer is clean.

Step 3

Step 8

Now we will address the HijackThis fixes.

These are optional fixes. These programs are not required to start automatically as you can start them manually if you need them. It is advised that you disable these programs so that they do not take up necessary resources. Many users have reported these processes slow their boot time. Please run HijackThis and click Scan. Place checks next to the following entries.

Your Java Runtime Environment is out of date.
Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system.
Please follow these steps to remove the older versions of Java Runtime Environment..
  • Close any programs you may have running, ESPECIALLY your web browser
  • Click Start > Control Panel.
  • Click Add/Remove Programs.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove all versions of Java.
  • Reboot your computer after all Java components are removed.
  • Download the latest Java Runtime Environment
After updating your Java Runtime Environment, you will see jusched.exe running at Startup. It checks with Sun's Java updates site to see if newer Java versions are available. This program is not required to start automatically. You can do this manually by visiting http://java.sun.com or just run the Java Plug-In Control Panel. It is advised that you disable this program so that it does not take up necessary resources. It may be worthwhile to fix it with HijackThis. This is the item to fix in HijackThis:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SunJavaUpdateSched] C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_06\bin\jusched.exe

quickset.exe (Dell QuickSet) process can be removed to free up resources without compromising system performance. quickset.exe (Dell QuickSet) is the Dell taskbar icon allowing you to quickly change settings. This program is not required to start automatically as you can start it manually if you need it. It is advised that you disable this program so that it does not take up necessary resources. Many users have reported this process slows their boot time. It may be worthwhile to fix it with HijackThis. This is the item to fix in HijackThis:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Dell QuickSet] C:\Program Files\Dell\QuickSet\quickset.exe

mm_tray.exe process can be removed to free up resources without compromising system performance. mm_tray.exe is the tray bar process for MusicMatch Jukebox which organizes and plays music media such as MP3. It gives the user easy access to the MusicMatch Jukebox application and settings. This is a non-essential process. Disabling or enabling it is down to user preference. This program is not required to start automatically as you can start it manually if you need it. It is advised that you disable this program so that it does not take up necessary resources. Many users have reported this process slows their boot time. It may be worthwhile to fix it with HijackThis. This is the item to fix in HijackThis:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MMTray] C:\Program Files\MUSICMATCH\MUSICMATCH Jukebox\mm_tray.exe

You have mimboot.exe running at Startup. Mimboot.exe is a non-essential process associated with eMusicmatch Jukebox. The process makes sure that Musicmatch is launched when starting up the system. This program is not required to start automatically as you can start it manually if you need it. It is advised that you disable this program so that it does not take up necessary resources. It may be worthwhile to fix it with HijackThis. This is the item to fix in HijackThis:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MimBoot] C:\PROGRA~1\MUSICM~1\MUSICM~1\mimboot.exe

You have QuickTime running at Startup. This is QuickTime's system tray icon and not necessary for the program to function properly. It is considered to be a resource hog. You will still be able to start it manually if you need it. You can fix this with HijackThis, but you will need to change the setting in QuickTime Player itself to keep it from resetting itself.. This is the item to fix in HijackThis:

O4 ‑ HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" ‑atboottime

There is a small program that will prevent QuickTime from resetting itself.
Please download Engraph-QuickTime-Killer This is a free utility from EnGraph software. For more information about EnGraph, go to www.engraph.com. This application is intended for people that use or consume Sprint Video Mail, as Sprint uses QuickTime for viewing thier movies. (or anybody that hates QuickTime) Of course, as soon as QuickTime is ran, it adds itself to startup, which is very annoying to me. This application will remove QuickTime from start up and kill any running QuickTime processes. This application runs silently at start up and closes itself as soon as it takes care of QuickTime.

You have RealPlayer running at Startup. This is RealPlayer's autoupdate program and is not necessary for the program to function properly. It is considered to be a resource hog. You will still be able to start it manually if you need it. You can fix this with HijackThis, but you will need to change the setting in RealPlayer itself to keep it from resetting itself.. This is the item to fix in HijackThis:

O4 ‑ HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" ‑osboot

DSAgnt.exe ( Dell Support Agent ) process can be removed to free up resources without compromising system performance. Dell Support Agent offers additional support and update features for your Dell computer or laptop. Whether or not you need to run this program on startup must be decided by you. If you feel that you want this program starting automatically so that you have it available as needed, then do not disable it. This program is not required to start automatically as you can start it manually if you need it. It is advised that you disable this program so that it does not take up necessary resources. Many users have reported this process slows their boot time. It may be worthwhile to fix it with HijackThis. This is the item to fix in HijackThis:

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [DellSupport] "C:\Program Files\Dell Support\DSAgnt.exe" /startup

osa.exe or Osa9.exe launches common MS Office components to help speed up the launch of Office programs. Some users claim there's no difference with or without it (Osa9.exe is the Office 2000 variant). This program is not required to start automatically as you can run it when you need to. It is advised that you disable this program so that it does not take up necessary resources. It may be worthwhile to fix it with HijackThis. This is the item to fix in HijackThis:

O4 ‑ Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OSA.EXE

qbupdate.exe (Quickbooks Update Agent) process can be removed to free up resources without compromising system performance. Associated with Intuit's Quickbooks but not required. Possibly to do with the payroll update service but you're prompted to check for updates when appropriate whether this is running or not This program is not required to start automatically as you can start it manually if you need it. It is advised that you disable this program so that it does not take up necessary resources. Many users have reported this process slows their boot time. It may be worthwhile to fix it with HijackThis. This is the item to fix in HijackThis:

O4 - Global Startup: QuickBooks Update Agent.lnk = C:\Program Files\Common Files\Intuit\QuickBooks\QBUpdate\qbupdate.exe

These entries indicate that you have Dell's MyWay installed.

O8 - Extra context menu item: &Search - http://edits.mywebsearch.com/toolbaredits/...html?p=ZCfox000
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [My Web Search Bar] rundll32 C:\PROGRA~1\MYWEBS~1\bar\2.bin\MWSBAR.DLL,S


If you do not use this, I recommend that you remove it. Please follow the Removal instructions.

Close all browsers and other windows except for HijackThis, and click Fix Checked to have HijackThis fix the entries you checked.

Reboot to safe mode. ( without networking support !) If you donít know how to boot in safe mode, there is a tutorial How To Start Windows in Safe Mode.
NOTE: To avoid the risk of any of the files or folders not being found due to their having the 'Hidden' attribute, first make sure that in Folder Options > View hidden and operating system files are set to show. If needed, How to see hidden files in Windows.

Using Windows Explorer, search for the following file, and DELETE it (Do not worry if it is not there):

C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\MUF954.EXE

Step 9

Letís run ATF-Cleaner to ensure no malware is hiding in temporary folders and for general computer cleanup to free space on your computer.

Step 10

Please run HijackThis in Normal Mode and post a new HijackThis log so I can make sure that all the malware was deleted according to plan.

After completing the online scans, if you received a report of files that canít be cleaned / deleted and you wrote down the filenames and locations, please include this in your reply.
