Well, yesterday my friend asked me to work on her computer, so I ran SpyBot, and Ad-Aware. Those combined removed about 500 spyware files and such. By doing that it sped the computer up a great amount, and also got rid of a few error messages. There is still one when the computer starts though:

Runner Error
Could not load the target dll ("C:\Program Files\BackWeb\BackWeb Client\\Program\BackWeb.dll", error code 126)

Here's the HijackThis log:

Hi Artifice

Backweb is sometimes seen as adware, although HP uses it for updating purposes, see HP's description here

With the My HP Center, consumers have access directly from the desktop to Internet sites featuring special offers for HP customers ranging from personal finance and shopping to digital imaging and music

For this reason it was probably removed by the antispyware programs you ran, they do have backups and you can restore the backweb feature if you wish.... or fix the 04 Gobal Startups line that I have included below.. that should get rid of the error message.

I am also including Weatherbug in the fix see here for reasons why, but if you would rather keep it then ignore the references to Weatherbug.

You are running hijackthis from your desktop, this is not a good idea because when we do a fix hijackthis will create backups and they will be spread all over your desktop. Can you please create a folder in My Documents and call it Hijack (or something similar). Then extract hijackthis into the folder you have created and run it from there. When you have done that, delete the copy of hijackthis that you have on your desktop.

When you have done this, run hijackthis again and with all other browsers and windows closed except for hijackthis put a check against the following and click fix checked.

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = http://srch-us9.hpwis.com/

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://popnav.com

The following are optional but recommended

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AlcxMonitor] ALCXMNTR.EXE <----Realtek AC97 Audio - Event Monitor. Sypware file used surreptitiously monitor one's actions. It is not a sinister one, like remote control programs, but is being used by Realtek to gather data about customers
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Weather] C:\Program Files\AWS\WeatherBug\Weather.EXE 1
O4 - Global Startup: Updates from HP.lnk = C:\Program Files\Updates from HP\137903\Program\BackWeb-137903.exe
O9 - Extra button: WeatherBug - {AF6CABAB-61F9-4f12-A198-B7D41EF1CB52} - C:\Program Files\AWS\WeatherBug\Weather.exe (HKCU)

Then reboot into safe mode, you may have to enable hidden files and folders and delete the following files if found


Then reboot and post a fresh hijacklog for review please
