    alright. i've got the latest updates from spybot and adaware and ran both and fixed the few problems i did find. here's the issue(s) i'm having and i hope that someone can help.

    apparently something got downloaded even though i run zonealarm 24/7 and am usually very good about what i let connect and whatnot. i also run spyguard 24/7 as well and it didn't catch anything. i've run my avg virus scan and found nothing along with norton and found nothing with that. but when i run housecall by trendmicro it tells me i have the worm bizex.b and i can't get rid of it. to make matters worse, everytime i restart my computer a ton of windows installer boxes come up and it tries to install different things. it does not tell me what though. i usually catch it in time and just hit cancel over and over again until i have closed all of the boxes. if i don't catch it though a random filename with an .exe extension shows up as wanting permission to connect through zonealarm. of course i do not allow it so i don't think my security has been compromised but it's bothersome and i want it fixed nevertheless. i finally got smart and went into msconfig and unchecked several things that i thought might be the root of the windows installer app launching on startup and sure enough it worked, but i'm fairly certain i still have this virus on my machine and i've tried everything i can think of to get rid of it, to no avail. here's my hijackthis log for what it's worth but any help is greatly needed as i run a home business from my computer and am afraid to do anything until i know my machine is secure.

    moonifa, couldn't find anything on HoseCall's site on bizex.b. There's a bizex.A.

    Try online scan from here:

    BitDefender.com

    (Note, can't post link right now, site must be down)


    There's some things we can clean up with HJT.

    Close your browser and check the following entries in HJT, click Fix and reboot.

    R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

    ...do you know anything about this entry?:

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [WCPI] C:\WINDOWS\System32\wintsvit.exe

    Can't find anything on it. You may want to have HJT remove it too. HJT has a backup/restore option and you can restore this entry if needed.

    :)

    Whoa! LOL I came in to see if anyone had responded to my query on weird corruptions to my dial up settings and instead I find a post by "moonifa" and it wasn't me! I don't use zone alarm nor do I have a home based business so what is going on here?

    Okay I guess instead of half heimers I do indeed have alheimers LOL! I am so embarrased. I had told my daughter about this site once when I wasn't able to access the internet and told her to feel free to post for me. If you could see my face it is all shades of red thank you! LOL Again my apologies. Moonifa :eek:
