Hello,
what a great site!

I get an error message about msinfo.exe and win.ini when I log onto my computer.
I read similiar messages on these boards and have my hijackthis log posted below:

My system continues to "hang" a bit on certain web sites, especially message boards. It is hanging now as I type this.

Can anyone tell me which of the following I can fix?
Will this cause the msinfo.exe and win.ini errors I get when signing on to my computer?

I apprectiate your help very much...

Welcome to TSG, jimmybct,

Can I suggest that you start by downloading and running Spybot

Once installed, start it,
Click Updates | Search for Updates
and if necessary Download Updates

Now Click Search and destroy
Click Check for Problems

It may take a bit of time to do the scan, but when done, put a check mark against the red and green labelled items and click Fix Selected Problems

Once done, repost a new Hijack this log :)

You have RapidBlaster and have been hijacked by CWS.

Click on the link below and it will download CWShredder. Close all browser windows. UnZip it and click on the cwshredder.exe and let it do it's thing.

http://www.spychecker.com/download/download_cwshredder.html

When it is finished restart your computer.


Next click on the link below and it will download RBKiller.

Close all browser windows and click on the rbkiller.exe and let it do it's thing. It can scan all running programs, detect RapidBlaster, and successfully terminate the process and remove the Run key registry entry. The newest version can also clean up various RapidBlaster remnants.

http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads/rbkiller/rbkiller.exe

Restart your computer.


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 post another HT log and we'll get rid of what's left.

sorry, I had to get some sleep last night and go to work this morning. Did the things you wrote and everything seems to be working. The "hanging" problem is GONE!
Also, haven't been annoyed by a pop up yet. Knock on wood.

Here is the log you requested:

Just a little tidying up left to do.

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

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 a link to Javacool's SpywareBlaster. Get it and check for updates frequently.
The Immunize feature in Spybot used in conjunction with SpywareBlaster 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 on a weekly basis.
