    I have just got a dialup connection to get into the net. This is the first time I have connected to the net from my home computer. However after connecting for the first time, after a couple of minutes I got the error:

    LSA Shell (Export Version) has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

    And it asked me if I wanted to contact Microsoft about it.

    It gave mentioned the following files. I can’t remember what it said about them.


    After a couple of minutes a window popped up saying that the system was going down saying:

    system32/lsass.exe had terminated.

    I connected a few times more and a couple of times a grey window popped up saying that spyware was on my system. And once my anti-virus software found a virus.

    I have no software to stop spyware and my anti-virus software (AVG anti-virus free addition) is a couple of months out of date. Unfortunately I cant stay online long enough to sort this out. Also AVG anti-virus was unable to get online to get its update.

    My system is stable when I’m offline.

    My ISP is suffolkonline.net

    I’m not sure if this is the right forum for this problem, but I don’t know what the problem is!

    What is the best thing so do to solve these problems? Your help would be appreciated.

    You'll ned to get a friend to burn a CD for you. Sounds like you have the old AVG so..

    AVG 7 - http://free.grisoft.com/freeweb.php/doc/2/

    SpywareBlaster http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
    AdAware SE http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html
    SpyBot S&D 1.3 http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

    DL them (they are free), install them, check each for their
    definition updates
    and then run AdAware and Spybot, fixing anything
    they say.

    In SpywareBlaster - Always enable all protection after updates
    SpyBot - After an update run immunize

    Do these and reboot before the next step.

    Then get HiJack This http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html, put
    it in a permanent folder (C:\HJT) , run it , DO NOT fix anything, post the
    log here.

    OK then. I’ve got someone to download those things for me and have installed and run them. Since this is the first time I got my home computer on the net I haven’t really been involved in online security issues before. But I ran Ad-Aware SE Personal and removed and quarantined the items that it detected. They had a TAC rating of 3, 5 and 10. I think the one that it gave the worst rating to was “Alexa”. (I wasn’t sure what they were.)

    Spybot detected “DOS Exploit” but I left that alone as it said that it was: "Company Microsoft." Should I be leaving it?

    Now am I correct in thinking that Ad-Aware SE Personal and Spybot - Search & Destroy look for things already on the computer but SpywareBlaster attempts to block spyware coming in? Do I have to run SpywareBlaster on startup or does it start automatically like AVG Free?

    Getting the updates went OK except for AVG Free which dialled up to the net ok, but failed to get the update. (I set it to use dial up, go inline automatically and use an existing connection if there is one.)

    Having done this I seem to be able to get online without any problems. (I’ll keep my figures crossed :)

    Incidentally there is a light on the front of my computer with a light bulb symbol next to it. I don’t know what it is, a power on light maybe, but though it has hardly ever been on before, since I connected to the net it seems to be on all the time? Coincidence? :confused:
