    I use a compaq presario with a 515j Pentium 4 and windows XP home edition.
    I recently uninstalled the program 'RPG Maker XP' through use of the 'remove programs' function. Then I cleared away all remaining files for the program with the program 'simple file shredder' which can be found at http://www.scar5.com/

    It seems now whenever I turn on my computer, it tries to install RPG maker XP. I've done several searches for RPG maker XP files using numerous word combinations. All files are gone, yet my computer still tries to install the program.
    If I let the progress bar fill up, it gives me an error message, obviously because there's nothing to install the program from.

    I've included a hijack this log in case it might be of any help.

    Download the trial version of Ewido Anti-spyware from HERE and save that file to your desktop. When the trial period expires it becomes freeware with reduced functions but still worth keeping.



    • Once you have downloaded Ewido Anti-spyware, locate the icon on the desktop and double-click it to launch the set up program.
    • Once the setup is complete you will need run Ewido and update the definition files.
    • On the main screen select the icon "Update" then select the "Update now" link.
    • Next select the "Start Update" button, the update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
    • Once the update has completed select the "Scanner" icon at the top of the screen, then select the "Settings" tab.
    • Once in the Settings screen click on "Recommended actions" and then select "Quarantine"
    • Under "Reports"
    • Select "Automatically generate report after every scan"
    • Un-Select "Only if threats were found"

    Close Ewido Anti-spyware, Do NOT run a scan yet. We will do that later in safe mode.


    • Reboot your computer into Safe Mode now. You can do this by restarting your computer and continually tapping the F8 key until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode then hit enter.
      IMPORTANT: Do not open any other windows or programs while Ewido is scanning as it may interfere with the scanning process:
    • Launch Ewido Anti-spyware by double-clicking the icon on your desktop.
    • Select the "Scanner" icon at the top and then the "Scan" tab then click on "Complete System Scan".
    • Ewido will now begin the scanning process. Be patient this may take a little time.
      Once the scan is complete do the following:
    • If you have any infections you will prompted, then select "Apply all actions"
    • Next select the "Reports" icon at the top.
    • Select the "Save report as" button in the lower left hand of the screen and save it to a text file on your system (make sure to remember where you saved that file, this is important).
    • Close Ewido and reboot your system back into Normal Mode.


    Run ActiveScan online virus scan: here

    When the scan is finished, save the results from the scan!


    Come back here and post a new HijackThis log along with the logs from the Ewido and Panda scans.
