I have some sort of trojan that I can't seem to find. HTe computer is a Gateway Solo 1.33 Mhz Celeron, 256 RAM, running WIN/XP Home (latest Service Packs) with Norton 2003 (latest update).

After start up it starts sending massive amounts of packets. In addition to the regular Norton and Ad-aware scans, when this problem started I ran House Call and Spybot. House Call found nothing, Spybot found a number if items which I deleted. The problem is still taking place. I ran Hijack This and her eis the log:

In addition, I ran a netstat to see if there were any ports listening. Here is that log:

first thing to do is get a firewall

a list of suggested ones is here
http://www.wilders.org/firewalls.htm

then see what program/application is trying to access the net that shouldn't be at start up

I would hazard a guess that it's either the messenger program/ windows set to autoupdate or norton set to look for updates as soon as it starts up

First of all thanks for the suggestions.

I have had a hardware firewall (Lynksys Gateway) and added Sygate Personal FW today. Yes, messenger was on, but Norton was set to update manually.

The firewall shows a bunch of stuff that is trying to go out, but I am not sure what I need to reject/accept. Any suggestions on where I can find a resouce to look this stuff up? That would really help. Right now I just try to look them up as they pop up.

Tried "fport", but when I ran it, the MSDOS window flashed and closed. I checked the readme.txt to see if I set it up was correct and it was. I noticed there was no reference to XP and I was not able to find anything on www.foundstone.com. Am I missing something obvious?

Regards,

jradomsk
