Greetings! I haven't had the need to post here for so long but found the fdj.exe folder in my "C" main folder, and also probably a separate situation links.exe occasionally tries to get through my zone alarm firewall. Any help? I ran Adaware and SpyBot S&D but they did not see them. Here is my HJT log:

Here's what I did-
As you see in the first HiJackThis post this was mentioned: O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [links] links.exe
I checked it and had it fixed by HJT and rebooted.
I looked in the C: folders and found the fdj.exe still mentioned so I deleted it.
I did a find folders search for links. exe and found a folder in WIndows/ system- It would not delete because it said it was in use by Windows. I booted into safemode and deleted the Links.exe through the find files meathod. Another re-boot.
I now do not find mention of the fdj.exe or the Links.exe on my system. The interesting this is that both folders when they existed had the same icon image so I knew they were related. (They both looked like a cartoon character that looked a lot like Marilynn Monroe!)
I suppose I will just wait a bit and see if the Zone Alarm "trying to connect" warning goes away refering to "Links" Don't know where I got this, and I read the link Rugrat provided.
That's it for now unless there are other suggestions. Posting this now Pacific time 9:55 pm.

It won't let me run the scan. It must have a pop up or something. I just get a bleep bleep and it goes no where. Thanks tho, I'll try other sites and see if I get the same thing.
