    I was surfing the web and I came to a website and Windows made the noise that indicates that a download is complete and I suspect the website downloaded a virus to my computer. I ran all my anti-viruses and spyware programs and it cant find anything. I am wondering if there is some sort of thing on XP that logs all your downloads, because that would help a lot. Or maybe Im a bit paranoid?

    Hi, I don't know of a specific feature like that, but you could wade through the Temporary Internet Files folder for whatever account you were using at the time...sounds easier than it is, thousands of files in there...so, since none of the scans found anything, why not just post a Hijackthis log to check?

    Hijackthis does not show all malware, but it's the place to start.

    Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
    • Save Hijackthis.exe to your desktop.
    • Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
    • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialogue.
    • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
    • Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log. DO NOT fix any items at this time!
    • You must have ALL browser windows CLOSED when you "fix" items with Hijackthis..
      we will help you later to do that. Most of what HJT shows IS NEEDED!
    • Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
    • At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit Edit then Select All, then click Edit and then click Copy, doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....
    • Open a TechSupportGuy forum Reply window for this thread, to have ready to paste the Hijackthis log into. Click once to place the typing cursor in the reply window.
    • At the top of your TSG/browser window, hit Edit then Paste
    • You should see your copied Hijackthis log appear in the reply space....then, submit the reply
    • DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

    Hi, Yes, some things to remove, do this:

    Please download WebRoot SpySweeper fromHERE (It's a 2 week trial):

    Click the Download button, middle on right of page...it's small but its there...

    Install it. Once the program is installed, it will open.
    It will prompt you to update to the latest definitions, click Yes.
    Once the definitions are installed, click Options on the left side.
    Click the Sweep Options tab.
    Under What to Sweep please put a check next to the following:
    • *Sweep Memory
    • *Sweep Registry
    • *Sweep Cookies
    • *Sweep All User Accounts
    • **Enable Direct Disk Sweeping
    • **Sweep Contents of Compressed Files
    • **Sweep for Rootkits-Make sure you DO check to do this one!
    • **>>Please UNCHECK Do not Sweep System Restore Folder.

    You should do the scan in Safe Mode>

    * Restart your computer into safe mode now.To get into the Windows 2000 / XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu"
    Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.



    Perform the following steps in safe mode:



    Click Sweep Now on the left side.
    Click the Start button.
    When it's done scanning, click the Next button.
    Make sure everything has a check next to it, then click the Next button.
    It will remove all of the items found.
    Click Session Log in the upper right corner, copy everything in that window.
    Click the Summary tab and click Finish.
    Paste the contents of the Session log you copied into your next reply. Post a new Hijackthis log along with it. Use more than one reply if it won't fit

    After we see if things are cleaned up, there will be some other steps to do, and you definitely need a couple of protective programs installed, which we can do later.
