  1. I have recently been having a problem with a popup form CiD that occurs in many forums. I followed the directions most people stated and I used a HJT tutorial website that checked my report, which lead to me removin some bad entries. This however is my finished reports.

    PS: Is there a way of actually deleting Past Items in the Notification Bar, or can you only make them hide.

    Note: I posted them because the attacment window wouldn't load.

    Any help would be much aprreciated.

    For info purposes, i have Windows XP.

    I have NOD32, Spybot, AVG, Ad-Aware, HJT and CCleaner

    Sorry for teh above 2 posts, the attachment file wasn't working, they can be delted now, because i have all the attachments done.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Go and read this thread HERE, then post a fresh renamed HJT log. It`s important to rename HijackThis.exe as some malware can hide from that filename.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    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.

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


    Open your task manager, by holding down the ctrl and alt keys and pressing the delete key.

    Click on the processes tab and end process for(if there).

    free download.exe

    Close task manager.

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

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [bone team] C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\APPLIC~1\CLOCKP~1\free download.exe

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Locate and delete the following bold files and/or directories(if there).

    C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\APPLIC~1\CLOCKP~1<Delete the entire folder.

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Post a fresh HJT log and let me know if you`re still having problems.

    Regards Howard :)

    Your HJT log is clean.

    Providing you`re not having any problems, you should be good to go.

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