    Howdy ya'll,

    I'm working on a Compaq desktop system and have run into something that has me stumped. The system is XP Home-SP2 with all patches, etc. Here's where the confusion comes in however. It's my understanding that ActiveX controls such as Shockwave, Java, QuickTime, Ewido, etc show up in c:\windows\downloaded program files. (That's also where they appear on my HP laptop, and there's a status column that shows "installed") On the desktop system however, there are no activex controls in c:\windows\downloaded program files.....and no "status" column. Instead, there's a folder called "Conflict.1" and a bunch of *.dll and *.inf files. The desktop does have Shockwave, Ewido, Java, etc. installed though.

    The system belongs to a friend and when I received the desktop, there was no AV or anti-malware software on it. It had a host of both; however, I have cleaned it......I think.

    Does this seem odd to anyone but me? Any ideas?

    Thanks! :)

    To download HJTsetup.exe from TrendSecure To Download HijackThis go to the following at the File Repository
    Click on the link below to Download HijackThis Self Installer:

    http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/threat_analytics/HJTInstall.exe

    Save the file to your desktop.
    Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    By default it will install to C:\Program Files\HijackThis.
    Continue to click Next in the setup dialog boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialog.
    Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    At the final dialog box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
    Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
    Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
    At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit Edit then Select All then click Edit and then click Copy doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....
    Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
    DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
    A security expert with a gold shield to the right of their name should take a look at your log - please be patient.

    Thanks so much. Here's the HJT log. If it helps, the original problem reported by the user was a slow system. I had boot time down to 1 min before I added in ZoneAlarm.....now it's quite a bit slower....

    I have also changed the Bonjour service from Auto to Manual. It was hanging and causing a host of problems. The user has no network so it really isn't needed right now.

    I await your instructions........

    I found this link http://discussions.virtualdr.com/showthread.php?t=60871 that talks about the CONFLICT.1 folder. Although I don't have anything that says "damaged" or "unplugged" in c:\windows\downloaded program files, everything else matches.

    When I initially started working on this system, Windows Update did not function. No updates had been run for months. TeaTimer was active and was coming up with numerous errors. Because of the fact that no AV was present and multiple viruses and malware were present, I thought that was the problem with Windows Update. After removing the nasties, it functioned and I didn't think anything more about it.....until now. I don't know if this additional info helps or not.....just trying to help where I can....this one has me stumped...

    I wonder if someone could answer a few additional questions for me. I found this link....not sure exactly what it's saying (it's originally in Japanese, but the link is the translated version). Here's where I am now. A security expert from this site has still not reviewed the HJT log. I posted a thread in Security with a link to this thread to request it be moved, but thus far, nothing has happened (I'm sure they're quite busy).

    This is the link: http://translate.google.com/transla...553540000&hl=en&rls=HPIC,HPIC:2005-32,HPIC:en

    I'm in training at MalwareRemoval University and an Admin there reviewed the log and said it's clean....doesn't mean there's nothing lurking in the corners....but there's nothing obvious in the log.

    So, I'm back to an OS-issue. If you look at the above link (particularly the last pic), you'll notice there's a desktop.ini file in the c:\windows\downloaded program files (I'll call it DPF from now on), along with a CONFLICT.1 directory. That's exactly what I have as opposed to seeing ActiveX controls; however, there are ActiveX controls installed (ie EwidoOnlineScan Control, NanoInstaller Class, Java Runtime Environment, etc) that work. Additionally, if I go into Spybot S&D -- tools -- ActiveX, they appear.

    So, my questions are these:
    1) would reinstalling SP2 fix the problem with DPF?
    a) if yes, would I then need to reapply all updates/fixes since SP2 and would programs/data remain safe?
    2) would it be safe to delete CONFLICT.1 and the 3 files contained within (ascstubie.dll, ascstubie.inf and libcomm.dll) and all files in the DPF folder (there are 16.....very peculiarly...some of them are ewidoOnlineScan.dll, ieawsdc.inf, kavwebscan.inf, libcomm.dll, nano.inst.dll, nanoinst.inf)

    I've been fighting this one since last evening. I thought I had the system done and was just doing some final cleanup and installing the latest and greatest versions of Flash, etc. and verifying the installs when I discovered the problem with DPF.

    Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
