In Hijack This, check ALL of the following items. Double check so as to be sure not to miss a single one.
Next, close all browser Windows, and have HT fix all checked.

I can’t find any information on this entry. Do you know what it is?

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [egeeu] C:\WINDOWS\APPLIC~1\broozthd.exe -QuieT


To take care of any problems caused by the O10 entries
Download LSPfix here: http://www.cexx.org/lspfix.htm
Launch the application, and click the "I know what I'm doing" checkbox.

To remove Kazaa
Download KazaaBegone 1.01 http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=3446


Next

IF you are running ME or XP Disable SYSTEM RESTORE : Here's How

Next reboot into Safe Mode and remove the following files and folders that are bolded

NOTE: Some of rhese files or folders may already be gone from rening the above clean ups.

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SahAgent.exe

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\P2P NETWORKING\P2P NETWORKING.EXE
C:\Program Files\Kazaa\kazaa.exe /SYSTRAY
C:\PROGRAM FILES\Comet\Bin\csbho.dll

C:\Program Files \NEWDOTNET\NEWDOT~2.DLL,NewDotNetStartup
C:\Program Files\/Messenger Plus! 2\MsgPlus.exe"
C:\Program Files\iMesh\Client\iMeshClient.exe

See here http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001052409420406 for how to start in safe mode if you don't know how.

Reboot into normal mode

If you disabled SYSTEM RESTORE above, re-enable it and create a new restore point.


Now download Spybot - Search & Destroy (if you haven't got the program installed already)

After installing, first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.

Next, close all Internet Explorer windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove/fix all it finds that are in RED

Reboot

Last, run HJT again and post your log again to see if anything was missed.

Thanks

Looks much better, only two left to clean up. Run HJT again and check mark these two lines and then click on the Fix button.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [P2P NETWORKING] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\P2P NETWORKING\P2P NETWORKING.EXE /AUTOSTART

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [MessengerPlus2] "C:\Program Files\Messenger Plus! 2\MsgPlus.exe" /WinStart



Then delete the bolded folders

C:\Windows\System\P2P NETWORKING\P2P Networking.exe

C:\Program Files\Messenger Plus! 2\MsgPlus.exe

To try and answer your questions, most of what was removed falls into the catagory of spyware, malware, or adware.
Generally it sneeks in on the coat tails of some program that looks useful or cute or fun to have. One of the older of this type was Comet Cursor. It seemed innocent and had some cute cursors. But behind the scenes it was gathering information and reporting back so it could target you for more and more advertising. New dot Net, which you removed, is another parasite.

Peer to peer file sharing, while it can be fun, can also be dangerous. It opens you to more pests like spyware, but also more serious things like a virus, Trojan, or worm files, which can cause real problems with your PC. Plus the fact that programs like Morpheus, Kazaa and others come bundled with spyware already in them. KazaaLite is said to be not only spyware free, but better than the original Kazaa. Imesh is another P2P file sharing program which has spyware/foistware components imbedded into it.

Here is an excellent cross reference to let you know what’s good, bad, or sometimes just questionable.

Hope this helps.

Sheesh.. thanks for the help....

btw, may i know wad does spyware actually do to the computer? is it the main cause for the computer working very slowly or even getting stuck? and also, how do you check for viruses? the last time i used norton to locate the trojan virus but couldn't do so....
which antivirus is the most efficient?

hi summer blues

YEs some of the objects that were removed can slow down your PC performance, they will "activate" and take processor time and some may try to connect to the internet without your permission or knowledge. Some just collect data where you go a the internet via "cookies".

There are many anitvirus programs and Symantec is usually rated high. You must update your virus signatures on a regular basis or the Anit-virus program cannot catch and remove the new viruses that appeare.

Please note kazaalite is a "hacked" version of Kazaa and considerd illegal. Clean alternatives are: www.winmx.com and www.shareaza.com
