    My computer has been going much slower and takes longer to load when i start it.

    I don't want to download hijackthis or any other programs so please tell me a way to get rid of this message. BUT if i HAVE to download HJT and stuff then it is fine, i just prefer not downloading all them programs.

    Without seeing a HJT log, how am I supposed to know what`s running on your system?

    Go and read this thread HERE and post a HJT log as an attachment into this thread.

    Run a few programs like Ad-Aware, Spy Bot Search & Destroy, etc. Then try cleaning up your startup with msconfig. Then disable any unneeded services (search for Windows Services tutorials). That port is just a random UDP port, and that IP address is IANA reserved, so it's kind of curious.

    If you are not prepared to download anything like HJT, then how are we supposed to help? Are we supposed to guess whats wrong with your pc?

    I can't see why you have a problem with it, after all, you are using norton software which about the worst there is for security in the first place.

    I must advise you not to use msconfig at this stage as it might just hide malware and therefore make it more difficult to remove..

    Once we`ve given you the all clear, then by all means use msconfig to selectively choose which programmes you want to start with windows.

    Okay cool.

    I have put HJT log as an attachment.

    There is also a screenshot of the norton message at the start of the post.

    Your system is infected with a variety of malware.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as Attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Also, let me know the results of the Panda Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :)

    Excuse me? I said I prefer not to download since my computer is already slow. I also said, i would download if i must. Sometimes there are ways of fixing things without logs believe it or not.

    Another thing, I have no clue how good norton is, all i know is my parents paid for norton and I have to believe it is doing a good job. If you would like to tell me a very powerful anti virus program then that would be good.

    Thanks.

    Delete all files in AVG Antispyware quarantine.

    Go to add remove programmes in your control panel and uninstall anything to do with(if there).

    Lxrllriq

    Close control panel.

    Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the code box below into it:
    NOTE* make sure to only highlight and copy what is inside the quote box nothing out side of it.
    Also ..

    Pay particular attention to this :-

    Make sure the word File:: is on the first line of the text file you save (no blank line above it, & no space in front of it)
    Code:



    Save this as CFScript.txt

    Then drag the CFScript.txt into ComboFix.exe as you see in the screenshot below.

    [​IMG]

    This will start ComboFix again. After reboot, (in case it asks to reboot), post the contents of Combofix.txt in your next reply together with a fresh HJT log.

    Please open notepad and and copy and paste next bold in it:
    (don't forget to copy and paste REGEDIT4)

    Save this as "fix.reg" Choose to save as *all files and place it on your desktop.

    Doubleclick on it and when it asks you if you want to merge the contents to the registry, click yes/ok.

    That all looks clean.

    Delete the following folder.

    C:\qoobox

    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 :)

    I believe that message is from the Norton firewall. Just tell Norton nt to alert you to that particular message again.

    It`s definitely nothing to worry about.

    Alternatively, you might want to consider getting rid of Norton altogether. It`s quite frankly a resource hog and not that good at killing infections either.
