i run a compaq evo n400c notebook with a internal modem (depend on a slow phone line in a remote place in costa rica) and whenever i connect to the mail-provider i observe strange things:
- even without having a mailprogramme or a browser active, the connexion is exchanging data.
- when i download mails (eudora 4.3) it takes long, long time and it is SENDING about five time as much as it is receiving (although i am downloading!).
- if i want start firefox, i can click the icon several times and firefox will not start.
- sometimes i can start firefox, but before it connects to a website, it shuts down again.
- sometimes i get an error-message popping up: 'RUNDLL error with loading of "ow. the modul was not found' (the third letter is a o which is crossed out with one line - and i am translating the messages, as i do not run english w2k)
- in found a file which is created (sometimes) once communication (eudora/browser) is active. the file most times has the name dj1d.exe (size 39kb), sometimes there is a second with a names similar to is67294.exe
- in the windows task manager there is no mention of a programme that would run except the ones, i want have running.
- i checked in the system-administration/software and found a progamme vsadd-in, which i understand is malware/trojan and which i could deinstall from the software-list.

my main problem is the slow internet connexion (a) due to the bad phone line and :thumbsup: due to this process described above), which means webbrowsing and downloading things takes hours. so far i have downloaded highjackthis and produced a logfile, which i can post later.

additional information: i had this problem with sick sending/receiving ratio already last year when i visited costa rica and depended on modem connexion (normally i use wlan, which worked fine). as i thought i is easier and also time to reinstall the notebook, i have formated the hd and totally installed/set up the system 10 days ago, before i travelled to costa rica. once i had arrived and connected, the problem was back.

is the information above helpful or is additional info needed?

what do i have to do?

Still try to follow the below steps if possible.

please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". You may have performed some of these steps already. About half way down are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a log.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log here.

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.
