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

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [eanth_critical_update_alert] C:\PROGRA~1\ACCELE~1\ANTI-V~1\EANTH_~1.EXE /Startup

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TaskManager Load Module] TSKMNGR32.EXE

    O16 - DPF: {2119776A-F1AD-4FCD-9548-F1E1C615350C} - http://www.stop-sign.com/pub/download/scandl_cnry.cab

    Restart to Safe Mode: press f8 on startup and select Safe Mode from the boot menu.

    In Safe Mode delete:

    The C:\WINDOWS\System32\TSKMNGR32.EXE file

    Before deleting the file would you please copy the file and send it to me here for analysis.

    Go here http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/ and download Adaware 6

    Install the program and launch it.

    I strongly recommend that you read the help file to familiarize yourself with the program.

    Before running the scan look at the top of the main window and you will see a Gear Icon. This is where you configure the settings. Click on that and then in the next window that pops up click on the "Scanning" tab on the left side. Under "Drives and Folders" put a check by "Scan within archives" and below that under "Memory and Registry" put a check by all the options there.
    The click on the "Tweak" tab and under "Scanning engine" put a check by "Unload recognized processes during scanning" ...........then......under "Cleaning engine" put a ckeck by "Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot" then click "Proceed"

    Next in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on "Check for updates now" and get the latest referencefiles.
    After getting the latest referencefiles you are ready to scan.

    Click "Start" and in the next window make sure "Active in depth scanning" is checked then click "Next" and the scan will begin.

    When it is finished let it fix everything it finds.

    Restart your computer.

    Then go here http://spybot.eon.net.au/index.php?lang=en&page=download and download Spybot.

    Install the program and launch it.

    Before scanning press "Online" and "Search for Updates" .

    Put a check mark at and install all updates.

    Click "Check for Problems" and when the scan is finished let Spybot fix/remove all it finds.

    Restart your computer.

    Be sure and take advantage of the "Immunize" feature in Spybot.

    Finally go here http://www.net-integration.net/cgi-bin/forum/ikonboard.cgi?;act=ST;f=38;t=3051 for info on how this happens and how to help prevent future attacks.
    On this page you will find links to Javacool's SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard. Get them both and check for updates frequently.
    The Immunize feature in Spybot used in conjunction with SpywareBlaster , SpywareGuard and weekly scans with Spybot and Adaware will go a long way toward keeping you spyware free.

    Important!: ALWAYS check for updated detections and referencefiles before scanning with Spybot and Adaware. And be sure to check for updates to SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard on a weekly basis.

    this is the file that is causing the problem it is my friends PC not mine i knew that there was a problem with the log but was not confident enough to remove an .exe file that seemed to be something to do with the task manager.
    he awaits your verdict before removing the file which he is compentent enough in doing to not need directions


    I have been advised that your link contains a virus, so will remove it.

    OK I see now.

    Well I did not mean for you to post the file here I meant for you to email it to me. Notice that "here" is underlined.

    Hehe. This is quite funny. I think this guy copied the virus exe and posted it on the internet so you could have a look at it, but some moderator mistook it for a dangerous link, and snipped it. Oh well. He did say e-mail the file for goodness' sake, just do it.

    Don't bother sending it now as we know it is viral.

    I am curious to know what virus.

    Since I'm not that familiar with virus files, when someone whom I respect, reports it as a virus and says do not click on it, I take his word for it....sorry flrman1, I didn't save a copy of it, as to post it in the mod section, I'm sure Mulder would have stumbled upon it and clicked on it :eek:
