  1. Hello,

    I run Windows XP, used to have Norton, but removed it and now have free Comodo firewall and free Avast Antivirus.

    Hijackthis appeared to be ok ... until recently ..... recently I removed Avast, downloaded free Avira ... I can't believe these actions produced this possible problem, but I ran Hijackthis and have the O15 entries, which the Log Analyser site at the Log Analyser site which I use http://www.hijackthis.de/ says that some of the O15 Entries are nasty....

    Every time I get Hijackthis to Delete them, they return straight away. Have been to other Log Analyser sites.... some agree with the above, but one site said everything was ok....

    Computer appears to be working ok, but it's been a bit slower since I downloded Comodo and Avast.

    And currently, as I have been unwell, I don't think I have the mental energy to Reinstall Windows, etc etc....

    Thanks... Mags

    Thank you ... (I read somewhere that we are supposed to attached logs, not post them here...)

    I have Comodo Firewall and Avast Anti-Virus installed - both FREE versions.

    Have run Ccleaner 2.29.1111

    I don't have any File Sharing programs. I don't think I have any P2P programs either.

    I ran a Full Scan with Avast Antivirus - NO threats found.

    I have run Malwarebytes 1.44 .. it's clean ...
    Log attached

    -----------------------
    Have run SuperAntiSpyware 4.34.1000
    It only found 10 Tracking Cookies
    Log attached
    -------------
    Java updated to Version 6 Update 18
    -----------------
    I have HijackThis 2.03 installed
    Log attached

    There are now ONLY 4 O15 errors, instead of 8

    So where now?
    ------------------

    And still unwell and no way could I cope with a complete Reinstall of Windows, which the PC probably well and truly needs.

    Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

    **Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**
    1. Please, never rename Combofix unless instructed.
    2. Close any open browsers.
    3. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
      • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
      • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
      NOTE1. If Combofix asks you to install Recovery Console, please allow it.
      NOTE 2. If Combofix asks you to update the program, always do so.
      • Close any open browsers.
      • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
      • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
      • If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.
    4. Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
    5. When finished, it will produce a report for you.
    6. Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review.
    **Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**

    Make sure, you re-enable your security programs, when you're done with Combofix.

    DO NOT make any other changes to your computer (like installing programs, using other cleaning tools, etc.), until it's officially declared clean!!!

    Oh .............. dear .................... blush .............. blush ............. I was ABOUT to use Combofix after wading through various reviews and all the instructions, then realised an essential key was missing ....HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap

    I think I may have deleted it, thinking it was something to do with Spybot that I had on ages ago .... so I re-Merged it .... and oh .... dear .... blush..... blush ........................

    I have worked very hard the last few days to try and sort this and had a few sleepless nights, so this will teach me not to mess with the Registry so much !!!

    Thanks guys ....

    Exits left ..................................

    OK.....I'm not sure what you're saying regarding that registry key....
    What about Combofix?

    Hello,
    I am happy that the HJT log analyser at http://www.hijackthis.de/ said my PC is now clean.

    Am unwell and to go through Comobofix would cause me extra stress.

    So I believe my PC is now ok...... thank you.
