I have been informed by a friend that he is receiving e-mail ifrom me and it is being stopped by his Norton Internet Security an "containing a virus."
I use Trend Micro Internet Security, scan with Adware and Spybot frequently. Also, some of the e-mail he received was sent at a time when my computer was turned off.
Please take a look at my HijackThis file and let me know if anything should be removed.

I suggest you do this:

Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close ALL windows except HijackThis and click "Fix checked"

Restart in Safe Mode:
Restart your computer.

Press F8 after the Power-On Self Test (POST) is done. If the Windows Advanced Options Menu does not appear, try restarting and then pressing F8 several times after the POST screen.

Choose the Safe Mode option from the Windows Advanced Options Menu then press Enter.

Because XP will not always show you hidden files and folders by default, Go to Start > Search and under "More advanced search options".
Make sure there is a check by "Search System Folders" and "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search system subfolders"

Next click on My Computer. Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and "Hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"

Click "Apply" then "OK"

Delete these files if there are still there.

C:\WINDOWS\System32\nvms.dll <--Delete File
C:\WINDOWS\System32\mscb.dll <--Delete File
C:\WINDOWS\System32\msbe.dll <--Delete File

Also in safe mode navigate to the C:\Windows\Temp folder. Open the Temp folder and go to Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.


Next navigate to the C:\Documents and Settings\(EVERY USER)\Local Settings\Temp folder. Open the Temp folder and go to Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

Finally go to Control Panel > Internet Options. On the General tab under
"Temporary Internet Files" Click "Delete Files". Put a check by "Delete Offline
Content" and click OK. Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web
Settings" button. Click Apply then OK.


Empty the Recycle Bin


Turn off System Restore:

On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

Restart your computer, turn it back on and create a restore point.

To create a restore point:

Single-click Start and point to All Programs.
Mouse over Accessories, then System Tools, and select System Restore.
In the System Restore wizard, select the box next the text labeled "Create a
restore point" and click the Next button.
Type a description for your new restore point. Something like "After cleanup".

Click Create and you're done.

Log looks good to me (y)

Also, some of the e-mail he received was sent at a time when my computer was turned off.
Your email address may have been spoofed or Hijacked if you will.

Open Spybot and click mode on the toolbar, then advanced mode. Click immunize in the left pane, then immunize again, this time from above with the green + beside it. Click the link bellow for SpywareBlaster, download, install and update. Check for updates weekly. Still in Spybot, click tools in the left pane, HOSTS File and Add Spybot S&D Hosts List. Then download and install IESpyads.

That will give you an added layer of protection against unwanted parasites.

Regarding the emails your friend received:

LDTate said your email address may have been spoofed. What this means is that the virus sending the emails puts a false address in the "Sent by" field of the email. Many viruses are doing this now, so the emails your friend received are likely to have come from another computer, not yours.
