    Been reading the HJT logs for about 2 months now and recently registered and plan to take the malware course. I am not able to post or send emails to mods, but I came accross this post:

    http://forums.techguy.org/malware-removal-hijackthis-logs/913922-do-i-have-virus.html

    At the bottom Cheeseball claims the log is clean, but to me I see a sneaky Ukranian IP address lurking in the host file:


    O1 - Hosts: 195.245.119.131 browser-security.microsoft.com

    So, I would say this pc is probably not clean especially with no AV....Thanks.

    And I edited the instructions

    No problem. I saw you mentioned he had no AV, but with the person running SP2, IE7 and no AV along with the Ukranian IP address in the host file, I just thought I'd bring it up. No disrespect intended. Googling that IP brings up nothing good and a lot of bad.
