Welcome to the BleepingComputer forum. We are currently studying your log and will have instructions for you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

During the cleaning process, if any other issues arise, please let us know.
If you have already posted this log at another forum or if you decide to seek help at another forum, please let us know. There is a shortage of helpers and taking the time of two volunteer helpers means that someone else may not be helped.

Step 1

The entries below indicate that you may have three antivirus programs on your computer.
  • McAfee Antivirus
  • AOL Security Center which contains an antivirus program
  • CA Pest Patrol Antivirus
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [OASClnt] C:\Program Files\mcafee.com\antivirus\oasclnt.exe
O23 - Service: McAfee McShield (McShield) - McAfee Inc. - C:\PROGRA~1\mcafee.com\ANTIVI~1\mcshield.exe
O23 - Service: CA Pest Patrol Realtime Protection Service (ITMRTSVC) - CA, Inc. - C:\Program Files\CA\PPRT\bin\ITMRTSVC.exe


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 do one of the following:
  • Configure only one antivirus program to enable automatic realtime scanning and leave the rest disabled most of the time.
  • Go to "Start -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs" and uninstall all but one antivirus program.
Step 2

The following HijackThis entries may indicate that you are using more than one firewall, Mcafee's Personal Firewall and AOL Security Center which contains a firewall.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MPFExe] C:\Program Files\mcafee.com\personal firewall\MPfTray.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [sscRun] C:\Program Files\Common Files\AOL\1164172761\ee\SSCRun.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 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 that you go to Start -> Control Panel -> Add or Remove Programs and uninstall all but one firewall.

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.

NvCpl.dll,NvStartup initializes the clock and memory settings on nVidia based graphics cards. Enable if you overclock your card. 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: [NvCplDaemon] RUNDLL32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\System32\NvCpl.dll,NvStartup

You have NvMcTray.dll,NvTaskbarInit running at Startup. This is a System Tray icon used to manage settings for nVidia based graphics cards. May be required for some 3D applications to recognize your card correctly - such as the game "Everquest". Otherwise, settings can be changed manually via Display Properties. 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: [NvMediaCenter] RUNDLL32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\system32\NvMcTray.dll,NvTaskbarInit

daemon.exe (Daemon Tools ) process can be removed to free up resources without compromising system performance. Supports the "pointer stick" in lieu of a mouse on an IBM ThinkPad laptop. Necessary for the "scroll" button to work. 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:

AOL® Safety and Security Center gives the following warning:

Due to the possibility of conflicts, we recommend against installing third-party security software onto a computer on which you are currently running AOL® Safety and Security Center.
Please note that if you had third-party security software installed on your system when you first installed AOL Safety and Security Center, the installation may have prompted you to choose between uninstalling the third-party software or not installing the corresponding component of AOL Safety and Security Center (such as AOL® Firewall or AOL® Virus Protection), in order to avoid just such a conflict.

Did this warning appear when you downloaded the AOL Safety and Security Center? Did you uninstall McAfee Antivirus and the CA Pest Patrol Antivirus at that time? If you did, then the entries may be left from previous uninstalls. In that case, we can fix the entries with HijackThis.
