  1. ishost.exe, issearch.exe, isnotify.exe, ismon.exe

    I opened some file, that i didnt even remember downloading, and it disapared, then later on my computer is acting retarded, checked my task manager, and this is what its showing, and when i try and take them off, it just comes back. I used, adaware, and zone alarm, and it dosnt come off yet, how do i take them off?

    I posted my HJT log, cause it seems thats what im suppose to do.

    Im a computer noob, not much, but enough to screw up at something like this....

    You might want to copy and paste these instructions into a notepad file. Then you can have the file open in safe mode, so you can follow the instructions easier.

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial61.html

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial56.html

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial62.html

    Your HJT log is now clean.

    Just have HJT fix this inactive entry.

    O3 - Toolbar: AOL Toolbar - {DE9C389F-3316-41A7-809B-AA305ED9D922} - C:\Program Files\AOL\AOL Toolbar 2.0\aoltb.dll (file missing)

    Download and run the Ccleaner programme from HERE.

    Run the programme two or three times, then run a disk defrag.

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

    Regards Howard :)
