    AVG antivirus
    http://free.grisoft.com/doc/2/lng/us/tpl/v5

    CCleaner
    http://www.ccleaner.com/download/

    Spyware Blaster - http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

    Ad-Aware - http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/
    All downloads listed are free.

    1. Error Checking- This takes about 35 minutes.
    Start - my computer - right click local disk (C) - properties - Tools Tab -
    Error checking section - Check now - check mark both boxes - Start -
    This requires a restart to begin.

    2. Start - Run - type - sfc /scannow - OK
    Don't forget the space between c and /
    You will need the Recovery CD that came with your PC if any thing is found wrong.
    Don't insert unless asked for.

    Add more memory

    Post a HijackThis log here so we can see what's running in the background and if any "nasties" are present.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    What is the processor type and speed?

    How much RAM is installed?

    How large is the hard drive and how much free space is there?

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    Open these 2 TEMP Folders and then delete all files and folders from inside them:

    C:\WINDOWS\TEMP

    C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\(USERNAME)\LOCAL SETTINGS\TEMP

    Uncheck any apps that are not needed at startup by going to run >> msconfig. This should help the load time at least...

    Yikes!!! :eek: That's one of the biggest startup lists that I've seen on this forum in a long time. I see over 20 startup entries that can be disabled from loading during startup and running in the background. Your computer must be running like a snail.

    You also have Symantec Norton and Grisoft AVG antivirus programs installed and running at the same time. Multiple antivirus programs will fight with each other and bog down a computer and actually make it more susceptible to viruses than having a single antivirus program.

    It appears that you haven't deleted all the files in C:\Documents And Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temp because of some of the log entries that I see.

    hmmm.
    yeahh i know its bad.
    we have had the same PC for like 5 years now..
    the Norton Antivirus has expired so we really only use AVG instead.

    Since i have started this topic, my brother has been onto the PC and done something...a small red warning appears in the bottom right of the desktop saying "You have a security problem!" and when you close it it opens a window in IE to "anti virus" pages.

    I agree. Get rid of Symantec Norton. The Norton Removal Tool should uninstall it and remove its stray files and registry entries. The current version can be downloaded from here.

    If your brother doesn't know what he's doing, it's going to add to your computer problems and make it more difficult to help you.

    I don't know if their's a conflict. I like Ad Aware myself.
    As for the red warning on your lower right, It's probably just telling you to
    Update your AVG Anti Virus
    You get rid of Norton and your computer will open much faster.

    Keep AVG. Get rid of Norton (MAJOR process hog) . Keep Ad-Aware as well.

    Ad-aware if for spyware, malware, browser hijacks while AVG is more for viruses such as trojans. Plus they both have different searching algorithms, and obviously different pattern file updates. I use AVG and Ad-Aware / S&D on one machine at home and it keeps me secure

    Flavallee - I'm curious about how you went about finding that he didnt clear some items in the temp file by looking at the HJT log. Just curious, thats all.

    I'm just assuming at this time that TEMP folder wasn't emptied because these log entries are still present:

    C:\DOCUME~1\Owner\LOCALS~1\Temp\video1019.cfg.exe

    C:\DOCUME~1\Owner\LOCALS~1\Temp\b.exe

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Somefox] C:\DOCUME~1\Owner\LOCALS~1\Temp\video1019.cfg.exe


    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Alex Needs Help:

    Did you empty out the C:\Documents And Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temp folder BEFORE or AFTER you ran a scan with HijackThis and posted a log?

    If you emptied it AFTER you ran a scan and posted the log, post a new log here so I can see if those entries are still present.

    From what I've read, Somefox is a "nasty".

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    As soon as a new log is posted, I'll assist you with trimming down that massively-bloated startup list. (y)

    LOL

    Thankyou very much to everyone that is helping.

    haycg - the red warning links me to "virus remover 2008". Once i click the red warning loads of pages open up telling me i need to download software to remove viruses and spyware...

    flavallee - I ran that AFTER deleting.. the ones that are left cannot be deleted..

    Run a scan with HijackThis, put a checkmark in:

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Somefox] C:\DOCUME~1\Owner\LOCALS~1\Temp\video1019.cfg.exe

    then click the "Fix Checked" button.

    Run a second scan, then post that log here.
