Hi
My computer would not go on the internet this morning. I restored settings and was able to get on. I did a hijackthis and below are the results. I have highlighted changes since my last hijackthis when computer was working well.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Derek
Followed your instructions and computer is working fine now. There is just one thing that I wasn't sure of. Did you want me to delete C:WINDOWS\system32\vbsys2.dll in the killbox. Its properties are dated Mar. 2005 and I didn't know if you wanted me to delete.

Thank you
Donna

That looks ok now so

Turn off system restore by following instructions here
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001111912274039
That will purge the restore folder and clear any malware that has been put in there. Then reboot & then re-enable sytem restore & create a new restore point.

go here http://forums.techguy.org/t208517/s.html for info on how to tighten your security settings and how to help prevent future attacks.

and pay an urgent visit to windows update & make sure you are fully updated & get the bunch of new updates that are alleged to plug the security holes that let these pests on in the first place
