Hi,

This morning when I switched my computer on I got a message saying that there was a problem in the START UP, and the options to either start it in safe mode or try and restart windows as normal again. It is the first time I have had that message for a long time. I tried to restart it in normal mode but it failed, and then tried again and it worked.

Just in case I did a HIJACK THIS SCAN.

First, download and install Windows SP2 by using the Windows Update feature or looking here: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/sp2/default.mspx

Then download each of the programs in my signature and install each of them.

Open Ad-Aware.
Click the "Check for updates now" link above the Start button.
Download any and all available updates.
Click "Scan Now", and select "Perform full system scan."
Uncheck "Search for negligible risk entries."
Click Next, fix everything that it finds.
Close Ad-Aware.

Open Microsoft AntiSpyware.
Under the File menu, click "Check for updates..."
It will automatically update itself.
In the Tools menu, click Spyware Scan -> Run a Scan Now
Select Run a full system scan.
Make sure the first and last boxes are checked, you can select the middle one if you like - just make sure your system drive is selected.
Click Run Scan Now and fix anything that it finds.
Close Microsoft Antispyware.

Open Spybot - Search & Destroy.
Click the Update button in the left panel.
Click "Search for Updates."
Check anything that appears in the lower panel and then click "Download Updates."
Click "Search & Destroy" in the left panel.
Click "Check for problems" and fix anything that it finds.
Click the "Immunize" button in the left panel.
Click Immunize.
Close Spybot - Search & Destroy.

Open Spyware Blaster.
Click Updates in the left pane.
Click Check for Updates.
Click Protection in the left pane.
Click "Enable All Protection" in the lower pane.
Close Spyware Blaster.

Run Hijack This again and post the new log along with any problems/issues along the way.

I went to the SP2 website and asked to download the updates, but all it did was download and install some Transfer Intelligence thing on my computer, but no SP2. It wants me to restart though, and I am always worried about that since it happens when trying to start the computer. :(

Well, I think you're going to have to restart along the line somewhere, so it may as well be now.

I've read that the SiS Tray and other SiS applications you have can either be intentionally installed software for some hardware or something or else it may be a trojan. Are you familiar with the program?

I have heard of it, yeah. I thought the Anti-Virus and Firewall stopped all those things.

By the way, I have downloaded all the four programs in your signature. Should I restart before using them, or use them first?

Me again... well, it restarted okay this time, albeit slow but then it always has been since putting Internet Security on here. I am going to install those progs now and sort that HIJACK THIS log out for you.

Thanks for helping out by the way. :)

Okay, I did all the stuff. I had a few problems with Spybot, for some reason the program stopped responding when I tried to scan. I did all the others though, and my log looks exactly the same... I think.

As you can see it didn't download SP2 though, for some reason.

O15 - Trusted Zone: *.registration.sonystyle-europe.com (HKLM) If you added this, it's OK, otherwise looks suspicious.

These also look suspicious. However, I am not an expert on this subject. Wait for an expert to have a look at them. Be patient, it may take time.

I believe that came with the PDA I just brought, a hand held device that I had to register with Sony. It should be okay, I think.

I shall be patient. I'm pretty good at that. :)

Well Raziel,I'd be real worried if my log read like that,and would probably high tail
to Microsoft and run the new Worm Blaster first,then drop into trend micro for the scan
and download Kaspersky Personal for a trial run.I'd also dump every symantec/Norton
piece of resourse-hogging garbage in favour of slimline alternatives and check out all
web references to svchost & system 32.I would definitely drop NAV in favour of an
effective av.Then perhaps reconfigure the start menu(Start/Run/Msconfig).

Wait for an expert to have a look at it before doing anything. svchost & systsem 32 files are legit. It might cause you a lot of problems if you delete them. Somebody will soon respond, wait.
