  1. I would just like to know if my computer is clean or not and I would like to know how to read these things myself, at least the basics.

    what do you mean by 'clean'? perhaps it is your best interest to run ad-aware or some other spyware scanner and an antivirus software. just make sure they're up to date and you should have the answer soon enough.

    and yes, i glanced at your log and didn't see anything likely to make trouble. but there could be more, i didn't go through it line-by-line...

    thanks for looking

    I'm pretty paranoid about whats on my comp so I try to use the "cleaners/preventers/scanners" that most people recommend. I frequently (at the very least once a day, always updated) use ad-aware, spybot S&D, spywareblaster, and run kaspersky antivirus which I run full system scans at least once a week. I also have a NAT router with built in firewall. I will sometimes run CWshredder but have never found anything. I check windows updates a lot. I also sometimes run the ad-aware vx2 cleaner plugin. Occasionaly I will use some online scanners like Panda or SpySweeper. I also check msconfig frequently to make sure nothing new has popped up in start-up programs. I have also used answersthatwork.com to check my running progs.

    I am doing all I know to do to keep my system and connection fast and clean . except analyzing a HJT log of my system. Oh and I use mozilla/firefox. I really appreciate any advice.

    Thanks - jtx

    Boot in Safe Mode.
    Switch System restore OFF, see how here.
    Next, run a HJT scan and place a tick-mark in the little square before (if still there):

    Now click on the Fix Checked button in HJT.

    When done, from between the dotted lines, delete the highlighted bold files.
    When a \directory-name\ is bold, delete everything in it, including that directory itself.
    Delete all files and directories from: C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Local Settings\Temp
    Repeat this for ALL [usernames].
    Delete all files and directories from: C:\WINDOWS\Temp (except files dated from TODAY).

    O10 - Broken Internet access because of LSP provider 'xfire_lsp_10650.dll' missing
    To fix, see my thread: Broken Internet access with xxx.dll
    and substitute xfire_lsp_8742.dll with "your" missing file name.
    Do NOT delete ANY other files!

    Boot normal. When all OK, switch System Restore back on.
