    Have you wiped the temp files, defragged, etc., as well? Here's a checklist:

    -- Delete all temp files (c:\windows\temp\*.tmp, or on XP C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp)

    -- Delete temporary internet files (c:\windows\temporary internet files\*.*, or on XP C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files)

    -- If you use I.E., click on Tools, Internet Options, Delete Files, select "delete all off-line content", click OK

    -- Click on Start, Programs, Accessories, Systems Tools, Disk Cleanup

    -- Download AdAware, check for updates, run it and remove whatever it finds

    -- Periodically empty the browser cache and the java plug-in cache

    -- Download Diskeeper and defrag

    -- Download, update and turn on SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard (or your spyware removal tool of choice).

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your version of Hijackthis is out of date, and doesn`t seem complete.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions carefully. Print them out if you can.

    Once you have done that, post another HJT log.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    First, update your copy of Hijackthis!

    Boot in Safe Mode.
    Switch System restore OFF.
    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:
    C:\Program Files\ISTsvc\istsvc.exe
    C:\Program Files\AdDestroyer\AdDestroyer.exe

    Next run a HJT scan and place a tick-mark in the little square before (if still there):

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [LoadQM] loadqm.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [¢‰¸ï0 4Ã4}¤Áœ5]C:\Program Files\ISTsvc\istsvc.exe] C:\WINDOWS\SBGORXU.EXE
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [nsvcin] C:\N20050308.EXE
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [VBouncer] C:\PROGRA~1\VBOUNCER\VirtualBouncer.exe
    O4 - Startup: AdDestroyer.lnk = C:\Program Files\AdDestroyer\AdDestroyer.exe
    O16 - DPF: {74D05D43-3236-11D4-BDCD-00C04F9A3B61} (HouseCall Control) -

    When done, delete the highlighted bold files. When a directory-name is bold, delete everything in it, including that directory itself.
    Boot normal. When all OK, switch System Restore back on.

    every time I attempt to extract the files from the latest hijack this!

    Mcafee finds a worm in it and deletes it..

    I have tried several sites and several mirrors, and they are all doing it

    Download it on another PC and unzip it there. It has only the one program-file in it.
    Copy that on a floppy to transfer.
    Your McAfee is giving you a false positive. Boot the infected PC in Safe Mode and switch McAfee off (and disconnect PC physically from the web!). Then make a directory C:\HJT on your diak and copy Hijackthis.exe into it.

    Using the same procedure as in my previous post (stop .exe process, run HJT, delete bold), get rid of these:

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [KavSvc] C:\WINDOWS\ikkm.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [autoupdate] rundll32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\WINUP2DATE.DLL,SHStart
    O4 - Startup: riip.exe

    Now get a rope and tie your ladyfriend up, away from any computer, until she swears to you, by everything that is sacred to her, that she will NOT download anymore rubbish. :knock:

    In a perfect world maybe,

    I got a call from her mom last night because she was crying about "AIM" not working, the files were corrupted and infected with all kinds of crap.

    Thanks again
