Firstly, this problem is with a friends computer. My finely tuned muscle car of a computer would never experience such a problem. :-)

So I think its Zango.exe causing the problem. I've run several anti spy-ware and anti-virus programs. Along with some registery cleaners, cwshedder, etc. All drivers are up to date, bio is up to date and disk error check has been performed. The computer is pretty new. turion 64, gig of RAM, ati radeon xpress200m, Win XP Media Edition.

Performance is very low. At first everything was choppy, especially video and audio, but now audio wont work at all. Boot up is also incredibly slow The services that enable audio, wireless internet, hot keys, etc have somehow been disabled and the computer won't let me turn them back on (through msconfig or winpatrol) I deleted Zango.exe, along with a bunch of other spyware through ad-aware, but it came back. Task Manager is note showing any irregular CPU usage when the computer gets choppy.
So, I'm lost. I've googled zango.exe but haven't found a way of removing it yet. The steady decrease in performance and increase in problems is making me worried. Any ideas?

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

I am not looking at anything bad on your log , lets do a few things.
  • Your Java is out of date and leaving your system vulnerable.
  • Go to your Add-Remove Programs in the Control Panel and uninstall any previous versions of Java (J2SE Runtime Environment)
  • It should have an icon next to it:
    Posted Image
    Select it and click Remove.
  • Reboot your system.
  • Then go to the Sun Microsystems and install the update
  • Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 11 <--This is what you need to download and install.
  • If you chose the online installation, it will prompt you to run the program.
  • If you chose the offline installation, you will be prompted to save the file and you can run it from wherever you saved it.
  • Then after install you can verify your installation here Sun Java Verify
I like to to do the offline installation and save the setup file in case I may need it in the future





Download and install the 30 day trial of AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 to your desktop.
  • Once you have downloaded AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5, locate the icon on the desktop and double-click it to launch the set up program.
  • Once the setup is complete you will need run AVG and update the definition files.
  • On the main screen select the icon Update then select the Update now link.
  • Next select the Start Update button, the update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
  • Once the update has completed select the Scanner icon at the top of the screen, then select the Settings tab.
  • Once in the Settings screen click on Recommended actions and then select Quarantine <-- Dont forget this
  • Under Reports
  • Select Automatically generate report after every scan
  • Un-Select Only if threats were found
  • Close AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 <-- Do not run the scan yet.
Boot your computer into Safemode
  • Go to Start> Shut Off your Computer> Restart
  • As the computer starts to boot-up, Tap the F8 KEY somewhat rapidly.
  • This will bring up a menu.
  • Use the Up and Down Arrow Keys to scroll up to SAFEMODE
  • Then press the Enter on your Keyboard
Tutorial if you need it How to boot into Safemode


IMPORTANT: Do not open any other windows or programs while ewido is scanning, it may interfere with the scanning process:
  • Launch AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 by double-clicking the icon on your desktop.
  • Select the Scanner icon at the top and then the Scan tab then click on Complete System Scan.
  • AVG will now begin the scanning process, be patient this may take a little time.
  • Once the scan is complete do the following:
  • If you have any infections you will prompted, then select Apply all actions
  • Next select the Reports icon at the top.
  • Select the Save report as button in the lower left 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
  • Close AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5
We need to move HJT to its own folder.
  • Go to where you currently have HJT installed and delete the whole folder.
  • Use the link above to download HJT 1.99.1 setup to your desktop
  • Double Click on the Setup icon and by defaut it will unzip to C:\Program Files\Hijackthis
  • Open HJT Scan and Save a Log File, it will open in Notepad
  • Go to Edit> Select All.....Edit > Copy and Paste the new log into this thread.
I need to see the AVG Report and a new HJT log please.
