    looks clean to me, but fix this with hjt:
    O20 - Winlogon Notify: winowl32 - winowl32.dll (file missing)
    i would like to add this. you have two firewalls norton and zone alarm. these two programmes are incompatible, it is also advised that you should not run more than one firewall and av programme. from the two you have i would keep ZA

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    If you intend to keep Symantec/Norton, uninstall Zonealarm.

    1. Please download The Avenger by Swandog46 from HERE. Save it to your Desktop and extract it.

    2. Download the attached avengerscript.txt and save it to your desktop. The Avenger script is attached to the bottom of this post.

    Note: the above code was created specifically for this user. If you are not this user, do NOT follow these directions as they could damage the workings of your system.

    3. Now, start The Avenger program by double clicking on its icon on your desktop.

    Under "Script file to execute" choose "Load script from file".
    Now click on the folder icon which will open a new window titled "open Script File"
    navigate to the file you have just downloaded, click on it and press open
    Now click on the Green Light to begin execution of the script
    Answer "Yes" twice when prompted.

    4. The Avenger will automatically do the following:

    It will Restart your computer. ( In cases where the code to execute contains "Drivers to Unload", The Avenger will actually restart your system twice.)
    On reboot, it will briefly open a black command window on your desktop, this is normal.
    After the restart, it creates a log file that should open with the results of Avenger’s actions. This log file will be located at C:\avenger.txt
    The Avenger will also have backed up all the files, etc., that you asked it to delete, and will have zipped them and moved the zip archives to C:\avenger\backup.zip.

    5. Please attach the content of c:\avenger.txt into your reply, as well as a fresh HJT and Combofix log.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    have done as you asked and have enclosed new logs.

    Just to clarify norton is just the antivirus and i do not have internet security and zonealarm is just the firewall and no antivirus does this still clash?

    All your logfiles are clean.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE.

    Now, turn system restore back on. This will have deleted all your old restore points and any nasties that are in them. It will also have created a new, clean restore point.

    If you have any further virus/spyware problems, please post in this thread.

    Regards Howard :)
