New HJT Log

  1. Actually, excerpts copied from the log,
    the rest of the items I am OK with as
    they directly relate to various applications
    I've got on the machine.

    For background: I have been using the following since I built
    this machine nearly a year ago, with excellent results:

    AVG Free
    Ewido Security Suite
    Ad-Aware SE Plus
    Ad-Watch SE Plus
    Sygate Firewall
    Spybot S&D
    Spyware Blaster
    Spyware Guard

    I also have a router with firewall.

    Recently I've been getting a lot of advisories telling me
    that "the document contains no data" or the internet
    page cannot be found or opened, and when I retry then
    it usually works. And connecting to and opening things
    on the internet has been noticeably slower than usual recently.

    So I scanned everything with every security app I had,
    finding only one mild threat (a marketing tracking cookie),
    then came onto here to post a HJT log.

    I found the below new items so installed and
    ran them:

    ATF Cleaner
    (I empty temp files, cookies, etc, pretty regularly anyway)

    The scanning apps all came up empty - no reports of
    anything malicious.

    However, now the machine seems to open things faster
    esp. internet pages, and with several starts have not
    had those symptoms of "no data" and being unable to
    open some internet sites.

    One curious thing did happen to me awhile ago over
    a wireless site in a motel - I couldn't connect to the
    internet either with my regular browser or I.E. I went
    into Control Panel and found that my Home Page had
    somehow been changed to I.E. (I usually use a diff
    Home Page). When I changed it back to my normal
    HP, then everything worked. It was about from that
    time on that I started having the problems.

    Again, the attached HJT log contains only the items
    I'm not familiar with or that don't seem to relate
    directly to apps I have installed.

    Thanks for any/all help!
    Much appreciated.

    I need a full HJT log from you.

    Edit: For what it`s worth, the items in your short HJT log are all clean.

    Regards Howard :)

    That's good news, at least for starters :)

    Sorry - was just trying to "lighten the load" a little.

    BTW - just now when I saw that I had new email
    and tried to enter email, I was refused connection,.
    one of the problems I'd been having. Retrying
    got me right in.

    Hmmmm - 2 tries and the file won't attach?

    I'll keep trying.

    It`s ok. If your having problems attaching the file, just copy and paste it. I`ll delete it when I`ve done.

    Regards Howard :)
