    hi there, first off let me thank you for having this forum so we can keep our home pc's safe and secure. i have been using spyware S&D for some time now as well as ad aware. i have mcafee virus protection software and zone alarm firewall installed. but despite all that i think i still have a virus. i have a few processes that i am not sure of what they do so if you can check my hijack this log and let me know that would be great. thanks again.

    there is also one process that isnt posted in that log due to the fact that i turned it off prior to scanning and that was the msmsg.exe process.

    talk to you soon.

    Hi jerzeyguy419

    Welcome to TSG! :)

    Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close all windows except HijackThis and click "Fix checked"

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [delmsbb] C:\WINNT\delmsbb.exe

    O16 - DPF: {1C955F3B-5B32-4393-A05D-24B4970CD2A1} (Video Class) - http://streamp.babenet.com/cabs/videox.cab


    Restart to safe mode.

    How to start your computer in safe mode

    First in safe mode click on My Computer. Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and "Hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
    Click "Apply" then "OK"

    Now find and delete:

    The C:\WINNT\delmsbb.exe file


    Also I highly recommend that you go to Windows update and install all "Critical Updates and Service Packs". This will patch numerous security holes in IE and Windows.

    Here are some routine maintenance practices that you should do on a regular basis to keep your machine running efficienly:

    Disk Cleanup:

    http://www.theeldergeek.com/disk_cleanup_utility.htm

    Defrag your HD:

    http://artsweb.bham.ac.uk/artsit/Info/Guides/GoodPractice/defrag-win2kxp.htm

    Run chkdsk:

    To use Chkdsk, click Start and My Computer. Right-click the hard drive you want to check, and click Properties. Select the Tools tab and click Check Now. Check both boxes. Click Start. You'll get a message that the computer must be rebooted to run a complete check. Click Yes and reboot. Chkdsk will take awhile, so run it when you don't need to use the computer for something else.

    Remove unnecessary startups

    This should be done through the System Configuration Utility. Go to Start > Run and type in msconfig.
    Click OK or hit the Enter key.

    Click on the "Startup" tab and remove the check by the items that you have determined are unnecessary. Click "Apply" then "Close"

    You will be prompted to restart. Go ahead and restart.

    Upon restart you will be confronted with a dialogue box warning about running in selective startup. Just ignore that message and put a check in the box by "Don't show me this message or launch the System Configuration Utility when Windows starts" and click "OK". You will not be bothered by the message again.

    Keep in mind that some entries will be re-enabled in the startups each time you use that particular program. Therefore, you will have to find the option in that programs preferences that says something like "Load with Windows" or "Run when Windows Starts" and disable that option.

    Go here for info on msconfig:

    http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_index.htm

    You can look up the startups here to help determine what is needed and what is not:

    http://www.sysinfo.org/startuplist.php


    You might also consider checking out Black Viper's guide to disabling some of the unnecessary services in XP here:

    http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm


    Also I highly recommend that you go to Windows update and install all "Critical Updates and Service Packs". This will patch numerous security holes in IE and Windows.
