Hello, it's me again :thumbsup:

This time, this is for my laptop. It was running slowly and froze sometimes until AVG Anti-Spyware picked something up (Dropper.Small). I'm not sure if this is a program that reinstalls itself.
I also removed via add/remove programs, "Mediatickets by OIN"

Spybot and Ad-aware found/did nothing. I ran Mcafee Stinger but don't know if it found anything. The computer still feels a bit slower.

ZoneAlarm firewall is picking this up: The firewall has blocked Internet access to your computer (NetBIOS Session) from ***.***.*.** (TCP Port 1453) [TCP Flags: S].

* being an ip address


Please let me know if there's something on my system.

Thank you,
Umberto

Hello umbertom and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I see no signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.

The file that AVG AS found was found in the restore points so that is not a problem.

As for the ZoneAlarm message, port 1453 is most commonly used for Genie mail accounts. If you do not use a Genie mail account then it is not a problem when ZoneAlarm blocks that port. It could be another computer probing for open ports (this happens frequently when connected to the internet) or it could be nothing. The IP address in the message will tell you what computer was checking that port. ZoneAlarm was simply doing its job by blocking the access and notifying you of the attempt.

For non-malware related XP performance issues it is best to post in the XP forum here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/56/windows-xp-home-and-professional/

They can assist with analyzing the system for resource issues and recommend changes or upgrades to boost system performance. Let them know that you have been to this forum and no malware was found.

Cheers.
