Strange HJS log entries

By FireballX301

  1. I run HJS regularly on my laptop (Win7 home premium) and I noticed that, upon removal of the following entry,

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {5C255C8A-E604-49b4-9D64-90988571CECB} - (no file)

    A repeat scan reveals about twenty lines of protocol O18s, of the following form:

    O18 - Protocol hijack: file - {79EAC9E7-BAF9-11CE-8C82-00AA004BA90B}
    O18 - Protocol hijack: http - {79EAC9E2-BAF9-11CE-8C82-00AA004BA90B}

    Out of curiosity I ran Combofix afterward to see what the log would appear to be, and I've attached both HJS logs and the combofix log. Nothing appears to be strange with my laptop, no homepage redirects or anything, yet these O18s have me slightly paranoid.

    Can anyone enlighten me?

    EDIT: Also, if it's relevant, I recently installed MalwareBytes Antimalware, but it crashes midway through the scan, even though I have all other utilities disabled during its scan.

    I got MBAM working, and neither it or GMER detected anything. Since there's nothing visibly wrong with my netbook in terms of redirects or performance, I'll just chalk it up to HJT making me paranoid about something harmless.

    Thanks in any case.
