  1. I have an old business computer running windows 98 (can't upgrade due to software programs that must run under windows for this company). It's keeps getting slower and slower no matter how many different spyware programs I use. any ideas, here's the hijackthis log.

    I'd fix these:

    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,SearchURL = http://4-counter.com/?a=2&b=lili111

    F1 - win.ini: load=S\TEMP\_wutl95.dll

    O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [SSDPSRV] c:\windows\SYSTEM\ssdpsrv.exe

    O16 - DPF: {4129EA54-F04E-11D3-BF96-00C04F0E7BE2} (CMV4 Class) - http://www109.coolsavings.com/download/cscmv4X.cab

    O21 - SSODL: systemie - {DD685400-2F2F-11D8-9D69-0008C781D189} - sysie.dll (file missing)

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Other than the above, your HJT log is clean.

    Do not fix this entry.

    O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [SSDPSRV] c:\windows\SYSTEM\ssdpsrv.exe It`s perefectly safe.

    I wouldn't call UPnP "perfectly safe" in Windows. Do you know anyone who actually has UPnP devices?
