  1. Reposting with attachment. Please disacrad earlier message, i dont know how to edit or delete.
    I saw some messages on this board regarding hijackthis earlier. Can someone help me with mine?
    Problem: My pc has been very slow lately in booting up and i also strated getting 'msnmrg.exe' warning messages. So I did search and found out that it is a virus installed software. It was in winodws\ directory so i went there and retitled it something different. I still see an entry in the register:
    HKEY-Local MAchine-software-microsoft-windows-current view-run> Windows service Manager = msnmrg.com
    Question: Should I remove this? (After retitling the actual msnmrg file the system boot has not been any faster, in fact it is a little slower!)
    I also did a scan of hijackthis. Log file text is insterted below.
    Question: What else that needs to be removed that is malicious and will make it faster and how should i remove it?
    I also want to get rid of the AOL taskbar, is there an Uninstall available or do i need to remove it through this?
    Here is the log file. Thanks in advance for your help. Apologies for a long message.

    C:\DOCUME~1\Angela\LOCALS~1\Temp\Temporary Directory 2 for hijackthis.zip\HijackThis.exe <<== wrong location!)
    Move to e.g. C:\Program Files\HJT

    There are several ways to speed up a PC: more memory, faster harddisk, faster processor, etc.
    But these are irrelevant if the software is not 'playing ball'.
    Installing monster bloatware like AOL and Norton/Symantec does not help at all.
    Having umpteen programs constantly checking for updates does not increase speed either.
    Running CHKDSK /F and DEFRAG regularly will make things run smoother (Always keep at least 15% free on your harddisk).

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VS7Debug\mdm.exe <<== MS space-waster
    C:\Program Files\CyberLink\PowerDVD\PDVDServ.exe <<== do you need this? Probably not.
    - Remote Control background application for CyberLink's PowerDVD version 5 and above.
    - Enables you to use a remote control with your DVD drive if your drive came with one.
    - Not required if you don't have a remote control
    - If you have one, start it manually only when you play DVDs.
    C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe <<== update-checker, not needed, can do manually
    C:\Program Files\BigFix\BigFix.exe <<== update-checker, start it manually e.g. once a week.
    C:\PROGRA~1\Rhapsody\rhaphlpr.exe <<== problem-checker, only start manually if you have problems.
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" -osboot <<== update-checker
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OSA.EXE
    - Starts the office-bar. If you don't use it, stop it.
    C:\PROGRA~1\MICROS~3\Office10\EXCEL.EXE/3000 <<== MS space-waster, unless you use it (hardly, if at all).
    C:\Program Files\AIM\aim.exe <<== Only keep if you use it (part of AOL)
    I would suggest to stop these programs from running automatically, which is reflected in the 'FIXes' underneath.

    Boot in Safe Mode.
    Switch System restore OFF, see how here.
    In Windows Explorer, turn on "show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how here.
    Press Ctrl/Alt/Del simultaneously, select Taskmanager/Processes, select the process (if there), click "End Process" for:


    Next, try to UNinstall anything to do with (not delete yet!):
    C:\Program Files\AOL Toolbar\toolbar.dll <<== probably in Control Panel/Add-Remove programs

    Next, click Start/Run and type services.msc and click OK. Look for the service:
    Indexing Service
    PRISMXL.SYS (maybe it is not in your Services, don't worry)
    Doubleclick it, click Stop if it's running, and change the Startup type to Disabled.

    Next, run a HJT scan and place a tick-mark in the little square before (if still there):
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VS7Debug\mdm.exe
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\New Boundary\PrismXL\PRISMXL.SYS
    C:\Program Files\CyberLink\PowerDVD\PDVDServ.exe
    C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe
    C:\Program Files\BigFix\BigFix.exe

    Staring a new thread

    I don't want to walk on someone else's thread and I don't know how to post a new one, so I just posted a reply here. I apologize if I don't do this correct. How do I post a new thread for my problem?
