Hi sportbike, and Welcome to SWI

Sorry it has taken so long to get to you, but the board has been very busy lately, and all the Helpers here are volunteers.

I suggest printing out each set of instructions and reading the entire post before proceeding. It will make following them easier.

I see no actual malware in your log :)

Please disable your Windows Defender Real-time Protection as it may interfere with the fixes that we need to make.

Open Windows Defender.
Click on Tools, General Settings.
Scroll down and uncheck Turn on real-time protection (recommended).
After you uncheck this, click on the Save button and close Windows Defender.
After all of the fixes are complete it is very important that you enable Real-time Protection again.

Download ATF Cleaner by Atribune from here http://www.atribune....tent/view/25/1/ and save it to your Desktop.

Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.

If you use Firefox browser
Click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.

If you use Opera browser
Click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.

Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.

* The purpose of the Prefetch folder is to increase the speed at which you can access the programs that you use on your PC. Unfortunately, Windows doesn't differentiate between a program you use every day and one you rarely use, which means that it may be prefetching a lot of stuff that you rarely use, adding to your startup time.
You may find that the first time you boot up after cleaning out this folder, your PC takes longer to start - the second, and subsequent, boots should be quicker.

Now you need to run HijackThis and click "Do a system scan only." Place a check next to the following entries (if they are still there):

R3 - URLSearchHook: Yahoo! Toolbar - {EF99BD32-C1FB-11D2-892F-0090271D4F88} - (no file)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [%%DELETE_VALUE%%] CreateCD50


Now close all browser and other windows except for HijackThis, and click "Fix Checked" to have HijackThis fix the entries you checked.

Run Panda's online virus scan and perform a full system scan.
Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button
  • A new window will open...click the Check Now button
  • Enter your Country
  • Enter your State/Province
  • Enter your e-mail address and click send
  • Select either Home User or Company
  • Click the big Scan Now button
  • If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it
  • It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)
  • When download is complete, click on Local Disks to start the scan
  • When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location.
You might want to take a look at this page created by miekiemoes, one of the Global Moderators here, on slow systems, and some things you can try to do to try to improve it:
Help! My computer is slow!

Please restart your system, and post a new HijackThis log, the log from Panda's ActiveScan, and note any errors encountered.
Did any of that help?

I also notice that when the PC starts up it asks whether to start Windows 2000 or Windows XP does that mean there are 2 OS on the hard drive? If so how do I get rid of Windows 2000

Hi sportbike I'm not a tech on this site. I have posted hijackthis log a few times and have yet to any answers. But i do have some softwaer running that you have. #1 Defender I deleted it . went to Filehippo. com and dowloaded ad-awear se personal and updates reguarly once a week.( I do all updates manually. to maney things get on the startup list) #2 Java Go to run type in MSCONFIG go now go to startup tab look at list - JUSCHED- remove the ck in box click apply click ok click resart comp. when comp starts up screen will pop up -sys utilty -put a ck in the box and click on ok. You don't have to have the update ck running all the time. I go to filehippo.com new update i download it.#3 QT I do not like at all running in my startup .# 4 AVG 7.5 I have and it works grate . As long as it is cking your email You can remove the ck's in the boxs in startup. you can click on the icon on the desktop and click on update to keep things up.#5 XP and 2000. I would look in control panel -- add+remove programs -- see if 2000 is listed if you installed XP . you may run into deleting files that xp is also useing. I have always seen 2 OS on 1 computer on seperate hard drives. you may have to reinstall win xp from the getgo. you could just click on the win 2000 folder and hit delete if no one can tell ya what is right way to do it and hope for the best. good luck. P.s. there are afew sevice running also that are not needed. ck out the service tab in msconfig. near the bottom of the list see if there is ( wireless zero ) If it there and you are not wireless. not needed. good luck

Please use the Posted Image button to reply. It's easier to read. Thanks.

How would you not know if there was a second operating system installed, did you get this system used? If you select Windows 2000 as your boot system, will it successfully boot in Windows 2000? Other than answering that, let's address getting clean first.

Please disable your Windows Defender Real-time Protection as it may interfere with the fixes that we need to make.

Open Windows Defender.
Click on Tools, General Settings.
Scroll down and uncheck Turn on real-time protection (recommended).
After you uncheck this, click on the Save button and close Windows Defender.
After all of the fixes are complete it is very important that you enable Real-time Protection again.

Did you just install BearShare? BearShare includes malware in it, and I recommend you uninstall it. You can find a list of clean P2P programs at http://www.spywarein...m/articles/p2p/ and http://p2p.malwareremoval.com.

Go to Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Add or Remove Programs and uninstall the following program:
BearShare

Using Windows Explorer locate and delete the BearShare program folder:
C:\Program Files\Bearshare

Now you need to run HijackThis and click "Do a system scan only." Place a check next to the following entries (if they are still there):

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,SearchAssistant = http://search.bearsh...ar.html?src=ssb
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://search.bearsh...ar.html?src=ssb

Now close all browser and other windows except for HijackThis, and click "Fix Checked" to have HijackThis fix the entries you checked.

I see you have used Panda ActiveScan before, so let's do a scan with that. First though:
Clean your Cache and Cookies in IE:
  • Close all instances of Outlook Express and Internet Explorer
  • Go to Control Panel > Internet Options > General tab
  • Click the "Delete Cookies" button
  • Next to it, Click the "Delete Files" button
  • When prompted, place a check in: "Delete all offline content", click OK
Clean your Cache and Cookies in Firefox (In case you also have Firefox installed):
  • Go to Tools > Options.
  • Click Privacy in the menu on the left side of the Options window.
  • Click the Clear button located to the right of each option (History, Cookies, Cache).
  • Click OK to close the Options window
    Alternatively, you can clear all information stored while browsing by clicking Clear All.
    A confirmation dialog box will be shown before clearing the information.
Clean other Temporary files + Recycle bin
  • Go to start > run and type: cleanmgr and click ok.
  • Let it scan your system for files to remove.
  • Make sure Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are the only things checked.
  • Press OK to remove them.
Run Panda's online virus scan and perform a full system scan.
Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button
  • A new window will open...click the Check Now button
  • Enter your Country
  • Enter your State/Province
  • Enter your e-mail address and click send
  • Select either Home User or Company
  • Click the big Scan Now button
  • If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it
  • It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)
  • When download is complete, click on Local Disks to start the scan
  • When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location.
I recommend installing a software firewall. I didn't see one in your HijackThis log (the XP SP2 firewall isn't sufficient protection, it only checks incoming data). Two free firewalls are Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall available from http://www.sunbelt-s...e.com/Kerio.cfm, or Zone Alarm from zonelabs.com http://www.zonelabs....reeDownload.jsp. There is a tutorial on understanding firewalls at http://www.bleepingc...tutorial60.html.

Please post a new HijackThis log, and the log from Panda ActiveScan, and note any errors encountered.

How would you not know if there was a second operating system installed, did you get this system used? If you select Windows 2000 as your boot system, will it successfully boot in Windows 2000? Other than answering that, let's address getting clean first.

Launch Notepad (start > run > “notepad”), and copy/paste the box below into a new text file. Select “all files” in the “save as type” field. Save it as boot-txt.bat and save it on your Desktop.

attrib -s -h C:\boot.ini
copy C:\boot.ini bootini.txt
attrib +s +h C:\boot.ini
notepad bootini.txt
Locate boot-txt.bat on your Desktop and double-click on it. It will open Notepad with some text in it (and save it to the Desktop as bootini.txt). Please post the text here.

Create a Restore Point
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore
  • Select Create a Restore Point and then Next.
  • In the box for "Restore point description", enter a descriptive name and press Create
  • When the "Restore Point Created" window appears, click Close
I also recommend fully backing up your system first if you have a backup program that you use.


To remove Windows 2000 from your system, you need to do two things:
1. Edit the boot.ini file to remove the dual boot
2. Delete the WINNT folder
--If you delete the WINNT folder, and there were files shared between the two operating systems, some programs may no longer work (so you may want to leave the WINNT folder).

To remove the Dual Boot option at startup:

Open the Start menu, right-click on "My Computer" and choose "Properties" from the context menu.
The System Properties dialog box will open.
Select the "Advanced" tab.
In the section "Startup and Recovery" click the button "Settings".
In the Window that opens, click the "Edit" button to open boot.ini.
Select the following line, and delete it:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect

From the drop-down menus at the top of the "boot.ini - Notepad" window, select File > Save, and close the window.
Click OK twice to exit.

You can find those instructions with graphics at:
http://vlaurie.com/c...ootini.htm#edit
You will have to scroll down to the paragraph that begins:
"Another way to configure these two most commonly edited settings.."


Restart your system.

It should now boot directly to Windows XP without having to select Windows XP as the system to boot.

If you decide to remove the WINNT folder, you can delete that now, but you may want to leave it. If you decide to delete it, I would be certain to backup the system first.

Please post a new HijackThis log, and note any errors encountered.

I don't see any malware in your log :thumbsup:

Your version of Java is outdated and needs to be updated to take advantage of fixes that have eliminated security vulnerabilities.

  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
    - Examples of older versions in Add or Remove Programs:
    • Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.2
    • J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0
    • J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 2
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6-windows-i586.exe that you downloaded to install the newest version.

  • Go to Start > Run and type the below line:
    cleanmgr
  • Click OK
    • If you have more than one drive, select the drive Windows is installed on
    • Click OK

I recommend you install a software firewall. I didn't see one in your HijackThis log (the XP SP2 firewall isn't sufficient protection, it only checks incoming data). Two free firewalls are Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall available from http://www.sunbelt-s...e.com/Kerio.cfm, or Zone Alarm from zonelabs.com http://www.zonelabs....reeDownload.jsp. There is a tutorial on understanding firewalls at http://www.bleepingc...tutorial60.html.

There are several free utilities you can use to help keep malware off your system:

A HOSTS file will prevent Internet Explorer from communicating with sites known to be associated with adware or spyware. A good regularly updated HOST file is MVPS HOSTS File, available at http://www.mvps.org/...p2002/hosts.htm.

IE/SPYAD adds sites associated with ads and spyware to your Internet Restricted Zone and you can download that at http://www.spywarewa...uc/resource.htm.

A free non-resident utility to prevent the installation of ActiveX-based malware is JavaCool's SpywareBlaster. For real-time protection, there is SpywareGuard. Both are available at http://www.javacools...m/products.html.
