In the last few days I have noticed that after I have booted-up my PC, and before I have started any applications, my PC keeps telling me that "You, or a program, have requested information from ******", (where ****** is some web address or other), and then asks me which connection I want to use. The websites it is trying to contact change, and usually it tries twice in a row (I always select 'Cancel'), then gives up, but of course that doesn't stop whatever it is from doing its thing when I am connected by choice.

Some of the websites I have taken note of are:

www.ip2location.com
best-targeted-traffic.com
hs2.zonelabs.com
cm2.zonelabs.com
210.22.14.9

I have been using SpywareBlaster, Ad-Aware, Spybot S&D, X-Cleaner, Avira AntiVir PE Classic and ZoneLabs Firewall for ages, and have followed your instructions on http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/ as best I can, but I can't find the problem.

This is my HijackThis log:

You may want to print this or save it to notepad as we will go to safe mode.

Fix these with HiJackThis – mark them, close IE, click fix checked

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [browsewm] C:\WINDOWS\System32\browsewm.exe

DownLoad http://www.downloads.subratam.org/KillBox.zip or
http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/killbox.exe

Restart your computer into safe mode now. (Tapping F8 at the first black screen) Perform the following steps in safe mode:

Double-click on Killbox.exe to run it. Now put a tick by Standard File Kill. In the "Full Path of File to Delete" box, copy and paste each of the following lines one at a time then click on the button that has the red circle with the X in the middle after you enter each file. It will ask for confimation to delete the file. Click Yes. Continue with that same procedure until you have copied and pasted all of these in the "Paste Full Path of File to Delete" box.

C:\WINDOWS\System32\browsewm.exe

Note: It is possible that Killbox will tell you that one or more files do not exist. If that happens, just continue on with all the files. Be sure you don't miss any.

START – RUN – type in %temp% - OK - Edit – Select all – File – Delete

Delete everything in the C:\Windows\Temp folder or C:\WINNT\temp

Not all temp files will delete and that is normal
Empty the recycle bin
Boot

Download AVG Anti-Spyware from http://www.ewido.net/en/download/ and save that file to your desktop. Note: This is NOT the Anti Virus from AVG.

When the trial period expires it becomes feature-limited freeware but is still worth keeping as a good on-demand scanner.
1. Once you have downloaded AVG Anti-Spyware, locate the icon on the desktop and double click it to launch the set up program.
2. Once the setup is complete you will need run AVG Anti-Spyware and update the definition files.
3. On the main screen select the icon "Update" then select the "Update now" link.
o Next select the "Start Update" button. The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
4. Once the update has completed, select the "Scanner" icon at the top of the screen, then select the "Settings" tab.
5. Once in the Settings screen click on "Recommended actions" and then select "Quarantine".
6. Under "Reports"
o Select "Automatically generate report after every scan"
o Un-Select "Only if threats were found"
Close AVG Anti-Spyware. Do Not run a scan just yet, we will run it in safe mode.
1. Reboot your computer into Safe Mode. You can do this by restarting your computer and continually tapping the F8 key until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode then hit enter.

IMPORTANT: Do not open any other windows or programs while AVG Anti-Spyware is scanning as it may interfere with the scanning process:
2. Launch AVG Anti-Spyware by double clicking the icon on your desktop.
3. Select the "Scanner" icon at the top and then the "Scan" tab then click on "Complete System Scan".
4. AVG will now begin the scanning process. Please be patient as this may take a little time.
Once the scan is complete, do the following:
5. If you have any infections you will be prompted. Then select "Apply all actions."
6. Next select the "Reports" icon at the top.
7. Select the "Save report as" button in the lower lef- hand of the screen and save it to a text file on your system (make sure to remember where you saved that file. This is important).
8. Close AVG Anti-Spyware and reboot your system back into Normal Mode.
Post the log from AVG and a new HiJack log


Please give feedback on what worked/didn’t work and the current status of your system

I followed your instructions, and my PC has stopped trying to connect to the websites I haven't asked it to, so that seems to be a success.

Many thanks; I stand in awe of your expertise & I'm very grateful for your advice.

Here is the AVG Anti-Spyware report:

The AVG Anti-Virus has a Resident Shield. Does that stop "bad downloads", and does it keep on working after the trial period?

Once again, many thanks for all your help.

The resident shield stops after the trial - the manual scans will work and requires manual updates

Get all of these and/or verify you have the current versions

SpywareBlaster 3.5.1 http://majorgeeks.com/download2859.html
SpyBot V1.4 http://www.majorgeeks.com/download2471.html
AdAware SE 1.06 http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html
MS Windows Defender - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en (XP and W2K only)

DownLoad them (they are free), install them, check each for their
definition updates
and then run AdAware, MS Defender (W2k/XP) and Spybot, fixing anything they say.

In SpywareBlaster - Always enable all protection after updates
In SpyBot - After an update run immunize

Check for updates and run weekly

Thanks. Got (and using) most of them already, except the MS Windows Defender. Got a slightly different (but apparently associated) problem now:

Since I installed AVG Anti-Spyware this evening, I have left its access approval in my firewall (ZoneAlarm Firewall) as "Ask", and it has been trying to access the internet every 10 minutes or so. I've been letting it, until the last few times it has tried, because my Anvti-virus (Avira AntiVir PE Classic) has started detecting the virus "BDS/Small.ML.24" each time AVG Anti-Spyware requests access. Each time I have told it to Delete the virus, but it keeps happening. What's going on?

Here's a new HijackThis log:

Sounds like a false positive in looking at the definitions

log looks fine

Have now done that, and after giving it a while to see what would happen the problem seems to be fixed. Many thanks for your assistance.
