Hello,

Let's clean up a bit most first..

First of all, uninstall your Ewido, because this version is way outdated. It is called AVG Antipsyware right now.

I'll give you instructions afterwards how to install - update and run it, because things have been changed in it.
But anyway, as I said, uninstall Ewido first.

Then reboot.

After reboot,

* Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following:

R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - <default> - (no file)

Next winmx entries in your hosts file aren't needed anyway. these are getting set there when you installed Winmx, to get a better connection to these winmx domains, however, this is not really needed and may slow down using the internet..

Please download, install, and update AVG Anti-Spyware
  • Load AVG Anti-Spyware and then click the Update tab at the top. Under Manual Update click Start update.
  • After the update finishes (the status bar at the bottom will display "Update successful")
  • Then click on the Scanner tab at the top. Click the "Settings" tab and then change the recommended action to Quarantine and click Automatically generate report after every scan. Click back to the "Scan" tab and then click on Complete System Scan. This scan can take quite a while to run, so be prepared.
  • AVG Anti-Spyware will list any infections found on the left hand side. When the scan has finished, it will automatically set the recommended action. Click the Apply all actions button. AVG Anti-Spyware will display "All actions have been applied" on the right hand side.
  • Click on "Save Report", then "Save Report As". This will create a text file. Make sure you know where to find this file again (like on the Desktop).
  • Close AVG Anti-Spyware and reboot!!
  • Post the contents of the AVG Anti-Spyware log you saved in your next reply together with a new Hijackthislog
Extra addition/note..

The CPU usage seems normal between 0-3 or 4% and the ram is currently flat at 239 mb
occassionally a spike shoots up to 80-90%

This is totally normal behavior and nothing to worry about. When you open a certain program, open your browser or whatever, you always get such spike.

Hi,

If you want a clean and fast system - you really have to stay away from illegal sites though..

C:\unzipped\All My Keys and Serials tons of em 5-5-01 windows adobe norton symantec xp adaptec pass this on please

Because it doesn't make sense if you use illegal software, obtaining them from p2p programs and sites where malware is lurking and then wonder how it comes that your computer doesn't run properly anymore since it is infected and since malware already damaged a lot. So is it really worth it?

Anyway, I also see you most probably disabled some entries via msconfig > startup. That's why your Hijackthislog isn't showing them.
In case there are bad entries/malware related entries present there as well, they should get deleted along with the related files and not disabled.

Don't enable them, but perform next to show them:

Open notepad and copy and paste next bold in it:

regedit /e peek1.txt "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupreg"
regedit /e peek2.txt "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupfolder"
type peek1.txt >> startup.txt
type peek2.txt >> startup.txt
del peek*.txt
start notepad startup.txt


Save this as look.bat , choose to save as *all files and place it on your desktop.
This is how the batch should look after you created it: Posted Image
Doubleclick on look.bat and post the contents of it in your next reply.

Hi Miekiemoes,Once again thank you very much for helping me,and being speedy coming back to me.Firstly i would like to respond back to you about,downloaded files,the one in question,"All serial no's etc"I got this five years ago and have never opened it! I am by your standards very new to pc's in general,I have been experimenting or playing about with pc's for about five years,everything i've learnt,is self taught or by watching a friend,I'm afriad i was brought up by people showing me that i could get things off the internet for free,and generally speaking you can,the more you learn the more you can get,now i feel that similar to the mp3 p2p sharing vs the massive amounts of money being made by the record company's (just take a look at Simon Cowell)I feel that people like me are actually helping the software companies!because i may use a piece of software that i've got from the internet,try it out and like it,and maybe it's been quite a task to get it to work,i tell my friends about it,and there you have it word of mouth advertising,they not being as skilled maybe as i,finding that they can not get it to work,may go and buy it!!I'm not saying that i've never bought any software,and i don't believe that you have never had any copied software! but if these large company's with massive profits can't invest some of the money,in stopping people from coping there produces,thats maybe what they should do,or perhaps thier happy for people to do it,because they sell more this way! any way it's just my view! sorry to go on and on.Back to my reply,find as requested look.bat content!!

My main point about illegal software, cracks and serials is... where you download/get it, that's where malware is lurking.

The output of the startupentries you disabled looks ok. I don't see any malware related entries disabled.

A note though..
Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update.

Updating Java:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 9.
  • Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name. It should have the Posted Image icon next to it.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-1_5_0_09-windowsi586-p.exe to install the newest version.
Also clean your cache/recyclebin etc..
* Clean your Cache and Cookies in IE:
  • Close all instances of Outlook Express and Internet Explorer
  • Go to Control Panel > Internet Options > General tab
  • Click the "Delete Cookies" button
  • Next to it, Click the "Delete Files" button
  • When prompted, place a check in: "Delete all offline content", click OK
* Clean your Cache and Cookies in Firefox (In case you also have Firefox installed):
  • Go to Tools > Options.
  • Click Privacy in the menu..
  • Click the Clear now button below.. A new window will popup what to clear.
  • Select all and click the Clear button again.
  • Click OK to close the Options window
* Clean other Temporary files + Recycle bin
  • Go to start > run and type: cleanmgr and click ok.
  • Let it scan your system for files to remove.
  • Make sure Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are the only things checked.
  • Press OK to remove them.
Let me know in your next reply how things are now.

Hi, Completed all tasks,and yes there is a remarkable improvement!I'm currently monitoring my task manager which shows between 0-3%,but i still think the pf usage is a little high at 481 MB this is with just 2 pages open on IE this one and one other nothing else running!!? A while ago i had my myspace page open and the CPU was upto 100% but i do have a lot of Photo slide shows running!!(6) what do you think,any way to get the pf usage down,i've included some other facts and fugures from the task mgr:commit charge-total 493229, limit-1310628, peak- 794144, Totals..handles 16797, threads 395, processes-33, phyical memory(k).
Totals 523760, available 217104, system cache - 266096, Kernal memory (k) Totals 81693, page-62804, nonpaged=18888, Committed Charge 480m / 1279m. Thanks once again much appreciated!! Baz.

The pf usage is totally normal and nothing to worry about. This also all depends what sites you are loading when you *only have IE open (keep in mind, you don't have only this open, it's what's all running in the background as well)

Everything your are mentioning sounds normal. You can't just get the pf usage down.. if it requires that much.

Yes, MySpace can indeed go up to 100%...
Also...
MySpace is not safe and I do not recommend it to anyone. You may also want to read these blogs:

Other reasons why not using MySpace.com:

1. It contains suggestive and pornographic images
2. It allows for the easy posting of way too much personal information
3. It is a context for dating and personal ads
4. It can be and has been used to exploit children and teenagers.

So if you want to keep your system clean, do not use MySpace
