A friend has been hijacked on her machine. I'm including a copy of her recent hijack this log. If someone could please analyse it and advise as to what to remove to correct the problem.

Thank you much.

From viewing your HJT it looks as though you have no firewall installed. Do you have WinxP's Internet Connection (ICF) built in firewall enabled?

You can use this following explanation to make sure ICF is enabled and if it's not to enable it. If it's not enabled the box will Not be checked, if it is it will be.

To configure Internet Connection Firewall (ICF) manually for a connection:

1. Click the Start button

2. Control Panel

3. Double-click Networking and Internet Connections

4. Then click Network Connections

5. Right-click the connection icon for which you would like to enable ICF

6. Then click Properties.

7. On the Advanced tab, (click the box) to select the option to Protect my computer or network.

8. Click Ok

9. Click Ok.

Make sure you have all the Critical Updates and Service Packs from http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com

***

Get, install, update and run free Ad-aware (and its HexDump plug-in) from http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

First in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now and download the latest referencefiles.

Make sure the following settings are made and on -------ON=GREEN

From main window :Click Start then Activate in-depth scan (recommended)

Click Use Custom Scanning Options' then click Customize' and have these options selected: 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.

Now click on the Tweak button in that same window. Under Scanning engine select: Unload recognized processes during scanning and under Cleaning Engine select: Let windows remove files in use at next reboot

Click proceed to save your settings.

Now to scan just click the Next button.

When the scan is finished mark everything for removal and get rid of it.(Right-click the window and choose select all from the drop down menu and click Next)

Restart your computer.

This is a basic guide as to what the log means, and some tips on reading it yourself. This should in no way replace asking for help in the forums, but it will still help you somewhat in understanding and modifying the log yourself.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Overview

Each line in a HijackThis log starts with a section name.

For practical information, click the section name you need help with:
R0, R1, R2, R3 - Internet Explorer Start/Search pages URLs
F0, F1 - Autoloading programs
N1, N2, N3, N4 - Netscape/Mozilla Start/Search pages URLs
O1 - Hosts file redirection
O2 - Browser Helper Objects
O3 - Internet Explorer toolbars
O4 - Autoloading programs from Registry
O5 - IE Options icon not visible in Control Panel
O6 - IE Options access restricted by Administrator
O7 - Regedit access restricted by Administrator
O8 - Extra items in IE right-click menu
O9 - Extra buttons on main IE button toolbar, or extra items in IE 'Tools' menu
O10 - Winsock hijacker
O11 - Extra group in IE 'Advanced Options' window
O12 - IE plugins
O13 - IE DefaultPrefix hijack
O14 - 'Reset Web Settings' hijack
O15 - Unwanted site in Trusted Zone
O16 - ActiveX Objects (aka Downloaded Program Files)
O17 - Lop.com domain hijackers
O18 - Extra protocols and protocol hijackers
O19 - User style sheet hijack

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

R0, R1, R2, R3 - IE Start & Search page

What it looks like:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page=http://www.google.com/
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL=http://www.google.com/
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
What to do:
If you recognize the URL at the end as your homepage or search engine, it's OK. If you don't, check it and have HijackThis fix it.
For the R3 items, always fix them unless it mentions a program you recognize, like Copernic.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

F0, F1 - Autoloading programs

What it looks like:
F0 - system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe Openme.exe
F1 - win.ini: run=hpfsched

What to do:
The F0 items are always bad, so fix them.
The F1 items are usually very old programs that are safe, so you should find some more info on the filename to see if it's good or bad.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

N1, N2, N3, N4 - Netscape/Mozilla Start & Search page

What it looks like:
N1 - Netscape 4: user_pref("browser.startup.homepage", "www.google.com"); (C:\Program Files\Netscape\Users\default\prefs.js)
N2 - Netscape 6: user_pref("browser.startup.homepage", "http://www.google.com"); (C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\defaulto9t1tfl.slt\prefs.js)
N2 - Netscape 6: user_pref("browser.search.defaultengine", "engine://C%3A%5CProgram%20Files%5CNetscape%206%5Csearchplugins%5CSBWeb_02.src"); (C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\defaulto9t1tfl.slt\prefs.js)
What to do:
Usually the Netscape and Mozilla homepage and search page are safe. They rarely get hijacked. Should you see an URL you don't recognize as your homepage or search page, have HijackThis fix it.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

O1 - Hostsfile redirection

What it looks like:
O1 - Hosts: 216.177.73.139 auto.search.msn.com
O1 - Hosts: 216.177.73.139 search.netscape.com
O1 - Hosts: 216.177.73.139 ieautosearch
What to do:
This hijack will redirect the address to the right to the IP address to the left. If the IP does not belong to the address, you will be redirected to a wrong site everytime you enter the address. You can always have HijackThis fix these, unless you knowingly put those lines in your Hosts file.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

O2 - Browser Helper Objects

What it looks like:
O2 - BHO: Yahoo! Companion BHO - {13F537F0-AF09-11d6-9029-0002B31F9E59} - C:\PROGRAM FILES\YAHOO!\COMPANION\YCOMP5_0_2_4.DLL
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {1A214F62-47A7-4CA3-9D00-95A3965A8B4A} - C:\PROGRAM FILES\POPUP ELIMINATOR\AUTODISPLAY401.DLL (file missing)
O2 - BHO: MediaLoads Enhanced - {85A702BA-EA8F-4B83-AA07-07A5186ACD7E} - C:\PROGRAM FILES\MEDIALOADS ENHANCED\ME1.DLL
What to do:
If you don't directly recognize a Browser Helper Object's name, use TonyK's BHO List to find it by the class ID (CLSID, the number between curly brackets) and see if it's good or bad. In the BHO List, 'X' means spyware and 'L' means safe.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

O3 - IE toolbars

What it looks like:
O3 - Toolbar: &Yahoo! Companion - {EF99BD32-C1FB-11D2-892F-0090271D4F88} - C:\PROGRAM FILES\YAHOO!\COMPANION\YCOMP5_0_2_4.DLL
O3 - Toolbar: Popup Eliminator - {86BCA93E-457B-4054-AFB0-E428DA1563E1} - C:\PROGRAM FILES\POPUP ELIMINATOR\PETOOLBAR401.DLL (file missing)
O3 - Toolbar: rzillcgthjx - {5996aaf3-5c08-44a9-ac12-1843fd03df0a} - C:\WINDOWS\APPLICATION DATA\CKSTPRLLNQUL.DLL
What to do:
If you don't directly recognize a toolbar's name, use TonyK's Toolbar List to find it by the class ID (CLSID, the number between curly brackets) and see if it's good or bad. In the Toolbar List, 'X' means spyware and 'L' means safe.
If it's not on the list and the name seems a random string of characters and the file is somewhere in a folder named 'Application Data' (like the last one in the examples above), it's definitely bad, and you should have HijackThis fix it.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

O4 - Autoloading programs from Registry

What it looks like:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ScanRegistry] C:\WINDOWS\scanregw.exe /autorun
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SystemTray] SysTray.Exe

O4 - Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE
What to do:
Use PacMan's Startup List to find the entry and see if it's good or bad.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

O5 - IE Options not visible in Control Panel

What it looks like:
O5 - control.ini: inetcpl.cpl=no
What to do:
Unless you've knowingly hidden the icon from Control Panel, have HijackThis fix it.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

O6 - IE Options access restricted by Administrator

What it looks like:
O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions present

What to do:

O8 - Extra context menu item: Zoom &In - C:\WINDOWS\WEB\zoomin.htm
O8 - Extra context menu item: Zoom O&ut - C:\WINDOWS\WEB\zoomout.htm

O10 - Broken Internet access because of LSP provider 'c:\progra~1\common~2\toolbar\cnmib.dll' missing
O10 - Unknown file in Winsock LSP: c:\program files\newton knows\vmain.dll
What to do:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

O11 - Extra group in IE 'Advanced Options' window

What it looks like:
O11 - Options group: [CommonName] CommonName
What to do:
The only hijacker as of now that adds its own options group to the IE Advanced Options window is CommonName. So you can always have HijackThis fix this.

O12 - Plugin for .PDF: C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\PLUGINS\nppdf32.dll

O13 - DefaultPrefix: http://www.pixpox.com/cgi-bin/click.pl?url=

What it looks like:
O15 - Trusted Zone: http://free.aol.com

So far, only AOL has the tendency to add itself to your Trusted Zone, allowing it to run any ActiveX it wants. Always have HijackThis fix this.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

O16 - ActiveX Objects (aka Downloaded Program Files)

What it looks like:
O16 - DPF: Yahoo! Chat - http://us.chat1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/chat/applet/c381/chat.cab
O16 - DPF: {D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540000} (Shockwave Flash Object) - http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab
What to do:

What it looks like:

O18 - Protocol hijack: http - {66993893-61B8-47DC-B10D-21E0C86DD9C8}
What to do:
Only a few hijackers show up here. The known baddies are 'cn' (CommonName), 'ayb' (Lop.com) and 'relatedlinks' (Huntbar), you should have HijackThis fix those.
Other things that show up are either not confirmed safe yet, or are hijacked by spyware. In the last case, have HijackThis fix it.

Thank you for your replies. They are much appreciated. I forgot to mention that the system runs on an AMD Duron processor, 857 MHz, 384 MB Ram, OS is Windows XP Pro.

Am not sure where to find these lists that you have mentioned to use. Looking at this copy of HJT, I find it difficult to analyse it and see just which ones to remove. Would you mind directing me to the appropriate lists so that I may be able to better select which of these items needs to be removed?

Again, thank you for your assistance in this matter.

Thank you again Styxx...

My fault, I forgot to mention she has both Spybot and AdAware. She also runs AVG antivirus. The lists that I was wondering about were the TonyK's lists that you have refered to as a guide to know which items are allowable and which should be removed.
