    He's been having problems with his system lately, and I told him to give hijackthis a try. He's using Windows 98 SE.

    As far as I can tell so far, C:\WINDOWS\PTSNOOP.EXE has to go. Is there anything else? Thanks in advance.

    Edit: so has F1 - win.ini: load=PTSNOOP.EXE, I guess.

    the log actually looks quite clean

    but to be sure
    download AdAware 6 181
    Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the "webupdate".

    Then ........

    Make sure the following settings are made and on -------"ON=GREEN"
    From main window :Click "Start" then " Activate in-depth scan"

    then......

    click "Use custom scanning options>Customize" and have these options on: "Scan within archives" ,"Scan active processes","Scan registry", "Deep scan registry" ,"Scan my IE Favorites for banned URL" and "Scan my host-files"

    then.........

    go to settings(the gear on top of AdAware)>Tweak>Scanning engine and tick "Unload recognized processes during scanning" ...........then........"Cleaning engine" and tick "Automaticly try to unregister objects prior to deletion" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot"

    then...... click "proceed" to save your settings.

    Now to scan it´s just to click the "Scan" button.

    When scan is finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it.

    then reboot &
    Download Spybot - Search & Destroy from http://security.kolla.de


    After installing, first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.
    Next, close all Internet Explorer and OE windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds that is marked in RED.

    then post a new hijackthis log to check what is left
