i have been given a compromised laptop with the above infections. The machine was infected in late 2006 while running AVG 2.1 & Ad-Aware.

i have run various tools, including: AVG2.5 & NOD32 virus scans, Ad-Aware, SpySweeper, Spybot, Super Antispyware, McAfee Stinger & CWS Shredder. The results of those scans are documented on this thread:

Buddy215 then asked me to run a HijackThis scan & post the log to this forum, so that is what i am doing. My goal is to regain browser functionality - at the moment, i cannot do anything security or update-related because the page simply terminates connection before any downloads begin.

Here's the HJT log:

Hello Sokoudjou and welcome to the BC Hijackthis forum. I don't see any signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.

I think it is probably just a configuration issue but let's check with 1 other scanner first.

Download WinPFind3u.exe to your Desktop and double-click on it to extract the files. It will create a folder named WinPFind3u on your desktop.

Note: You must be logged on to the system with an account that has Administrator privileges to run this program.
  • Open the WinPFind3u folder and double-click on WinPFind3U.exe to start the program.
  • In the Win32 Services group select All.
  • In the File String Search group select None
  • Under Additional Scans click the checkboxes in front of the following items to select them:
    • Reg - Desktop Components
      Reg - Disabled MS Config Items
      Reg - Policy Settings
      Reg - Security Settings
      File - Additional Folder Scans
  • Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
  • Let it run unhindered until it finishes.
  • When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
  • Click the Format menu and make sure that Wordwrap is not checked. If it is then click on it to uncheck it.
Use the Add Reply button and Copy/Paste the information back here. I will review it when it comes in. If, after posting, the last line is not < End of Report > then the log is too big to fit into a single post and you will need to split it into multiple posts.


I do not respond to PM's requesting help. That's what the forums are here for. Please use them so that others may benefit from your questions and the responses you receive.
