PC being annoying on startup, unrecognised things in hjt log

  1. Hi, lately my pc has been annoying on startup by not loading all of the programs correctly

    I think most of the annoyances i've been having have happened since i turned UAC off (i have windows vista ultimate ;))

    I just ran a HJT scan and it has things in it that i don't recognise so i thought it best to post it here and see if anyone else knows what they are

    Thanks for looking and any help is appreciated :)

    There are a few suspicious-looking entries in your HijackThis log.

    Please navigate to www.virustotal.com.

    Click the Choose... button.

    Navigate to the following file:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\qwave.dll

    Click Open. Then click Send File.

    Wait until it's done scanning, then copy and paste the results into a Notepad file and save it on your computer. Attach the file in your next reply.

    Regards :)

    i just realised that i was a bit unclear before, by things i didn't recognize in the log i meant like the O13, O11 etc

    i have attached the results now

    there's probably some stuff at the top that's not needed but it's better to have too much than not enough ;)

    Could you run the qwave scan again? It looks like it was stopped prematurely. Wait until it says it's done.

    You can fix the O13 and O11 entries.

    Regards :)

    In that case, your system appears to be clean.

    However, if you still think it's infected, you can post ComboFix and AVG Anti-Spyware logfiles per these instructions.

    You might also see this thread for information on speeding up your system.

    Regards :)

    cool, that kind of is but kind of isn't what i wanted to hear haha :D

    it's just that startup programs don't load properly, sometimes the processes will start but the actual program will not show up, so i suspected an infection

    i'll take a look at the thread about speeding up my pc though and see what happens

    thanks for your help :)

    You're welcome.

    I'm not sure why stuff doesn't start up properly; perhaps opening a new thread in our Windows OS forum would help.

    Regards :)
