    Hi,
    My laptop has been acting very odd lately: slow, always full of viruses. This morning I ran adaware and stopped it when it started scanning the 300,000th file -- usually it stops around 100,000. I disconnected it from the internet and am in the process of running microsoft antispyware. Last time I ran spysweeper, it usually takes 7-10 minutes, it went 79 minutes. Anyone have any ideas?
    Thanks a ton,
    Sandy

    Run AdAware and Spysweeper in Safe Mode then restart.

    Run HijackThis and click Do a system scan and save a log file. Post the log here.

    Brendan,

    I tried to pm you, but it says you have reached your pm quota. You need to empty your pm folders. I sent you an email instead.

    ok, I am trying to reboot in safe mode, but all i get is a screen full of messages that all begin: multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS\System32\ and then the last bit is either DRIVERS or Drivers with various ones named. Some examples are agp440.sys Mup.sys vvoice.sys etc. And that is all that happens, no further progress.

    I went back and redid it using the msconfig -- sorry didn't see the link to the instructions at first read. It is now checking file system. I will run the adaware and the spysweeper and then hijack this and post again.

    Are you getting dodgy redirections in your web browser?

    I find the 017's highly suspicious.

    From Googling, it looks like I should have left those in my original post.

    Fix these in HijackThis:
    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{4799C453-ECD1-4891-931D-22645B9280FD}: NameServer = 85.255.113.101,85.255.112.11
    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{52BD599B-E36E-42A8-A53A-E7B9AAD78D47}: NameServer = 85.255.113.101,85.255.112.11
    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{96DC25F9-BA23-4BBD-84B1-ACB5E6AD6BCC}: NameServer = 85.255.113.101,85.255.112.11
    O17 - HKLM\System\CS1\Services\Tcpip\..\{4799C453-ECD1-4891-931D-22645B9280FD}: NameServer = 85.255.113.101,85.255.112.11
    O17 - HKLM\System\CS2\Services\Tcpip\..\{4799C453-ECD1-4891-931D-22645B9280FD}: NameServer = 85.255.113.101,85.255.112.11

    And let us know if you're still having problems. (If this fix should cause you any problems, you can undo it with HijackThis backups.)

    We were having problems with redirections attempting to happen, all the time, but one of the spyware things kept detecting and preventing, but that may be why it was sooooooo slow? Anyway, I have fixed the ones you mentioned, and now I am going to boot back into normal mode and hook back up to the internet, I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks.
