  1. Can someone please help I have been having various problems with spyware and trojans, I think!
    I have done a freedom GUi scan for trojans and here is the log file. The auther says dont edit or delete files unless you know what you are doing and I dont. Can anyone please tell me which files in the log should be deleted or which ones should not? Thanks in advance John.

    Thanks for the reply

    Thanks for the reply Howard, but I have followed all instructions and am still having problems. I found the HJT help a little confusing so I will post my HJT log file for you to see. I am also getting a notification each time I boot up windows which says Cannot find file ibm0001.exe or words to that effect. Adaware, spybot, cw shredder, coolws., about buster etc all found nothing.
    I have a PII 450mhz, 128 Ram, OS win98, and IE 6.0

    thanks again John

    Boot into safe mode. See how HERE.

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = about:blank
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL =
    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = about:blank
    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Window Title = Microsoft Internet Explorer provided by OptusNet
    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName =

    F1 - win.ini: run=lxcgppls.exe

    O2 - BHO: ST - {9394EDE7-C8B5-483E-8773-474BF36AF6E4} - C:\PROGRAM FILES\MSN APPS\ST\01.03.0000.1005\EN-XU\STMAIN.DLL

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [LXCGCATS] rundll32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\LXCGtime.dll,_RunDLLEntry@16

    O14 - IERESET.INF: START_PAGE_URL= Only fix this entry, if it doesn`t belong to your computer manufacturer, or your ISP provider.

    O16 - DPF: {56393399-041A-4650-94C7-13DFCB1F4665} (PSFormX Control) -

    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\VxD\MSTCP: NameServer =, Only fix this entry, if it doesn`t belong to your ISP.

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Reboot into normal mode.

    Regards Howard :)

    Boot into safe mode. See how HERE.

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.

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

    C:\Program Files\Doctor Alex\Undo

    Close control panel.

    Delete the following bold file(if there).

    C:\Program Files\Doctor Alex\Undo

    Open HJT and click on the config button, then the Misc Tools button.

    Click on the delete file on reboot button.

    Browse to the following files and enter these locations 1 at a time into the open box and click open.



    C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\hir7zlkz.default\cookies.txt[]



    You will be asked after each entry, if you want to reboot your computer. Click yes. You will be required to reboot your computer 5 times.

    Regards Howard :)
