    Hello,
    I've been to rid my computer (Windows XP) of spyware and such, uneeded stuff running, as I can only get dial up and it's slow enough at best! If I can figure out how to get this Hijack This log attached, I would sure appreciate it if someone could look at it and tell me what maybe should'nt be there.I've learned alot and have enjoyed reading the forums, but I still don't know alot.
    Thanks,
    jilljo

    I currently use three products to rid my machine of spyware/adware, one product never gets all of it.

    Here are three of the anti spyware apps I currently use and they are all free.
    Microsoft currently ahs a Beta product out now also. the link is below-

    Hope this will help alleviate the problems.

    Your log is clean, but I’d clean up those HP redirects and the others


    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = http://ie.redirect.hp.com/svs/rdr?TYPE=3&tp=iehome&locale=EN_US&c=Q304&bd=presario&pf=desktop

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = http://ie.redirect.hp.com/svs/rdr?TYPE=3&tp=iesearch&locale=EN_US&c=Q304&bd=presario&pf=desktop

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://ie.redirect.hp.com/svs/rdr?TYPE=3&tp=iesearch&locale=EN_US&c=Q304&bd=presario&pf=desktop

    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://ie.redirect.hp.com/svs/rdr?TYPE=3&tp=iesearch&locale=EN_US&c=Q304&bd=presario&pf=desktop

    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://ie.redirect.hp.com/svs/rdr?TYPE=3&tp=iehome&locale=EN_US&c=Q304&bd=presario&pf=desktop

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {549B5CA7-4A86-11D7-A4DF-000874180BB3} - (no file)

    O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {08B0E5C0-4FCB-11CF-AAA5-00401C608501} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\msjava.dll (file missing)

    O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Sun Java Console - {08B0E5C0-4FCB-11CF-AAA5-00401C608501} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\msjava.dll (file missing)

    O23 - Service: ZESOFT - Unknown - C:\WINDOWS\zeta.exe (file missing)


    And you can fix these

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" -osboot

    O4 - Global Startup: Quicken Scheduled Updates.lnk = C:\Program Files\Quicken\bagent.exe

    O4 - Global Startup: Compaq Connections.lnk = C:\Program Files\Compaq Connections\1940576\Program\BackWeb-1940576.exe

    And you have Spybot – Intermute - Spy Sweeper all in the startup, with 5 entries of Spy Sweeper running, that will certainly slow u down!
