would you please inspect this log thank you
Nothing wrong in the log, BUT, you downloaded MSN Messenger.
Do NOT install it, it's a major source for getting infections!
Also, throw that Zonealarm out and replace it with the free Sygate firewall from http://soho.sygate.com.
It goes much easier on your resources.
Personally I would also throw that Yahoo-bar out, but that's your decision.
Run HJT and have it fix those O16 entries, and you are done.
thank you for your reply. i only keep yahoo and msn for contacts with 2 people not for common chat, is that still dodgey?.
this reply will be posted in the public notices with the reference to zone alarm removed. thanks again RBS
As long as you keep a close eye on those messenger programs, it's relatively safe.
I have even removed the standard Messenger, I don't believe in 'chatting'.
Email is good enough as far as I'm concerned.
PS: Sygate is ONLY a firewall.
rbs, Your A Gem!!!!
