    Hi,
    I see this is a reaccurring problem with other people and have checked for viruses and adware. Nothing i have done has fixed my problem but i saw that some people who posted their re-outs from hijackthis have fixed their problem. i have no idea what any of that stuff means so I'm hoping that some very nice person will tell me PLEASE how to fix my computer!!!

    Here is what hijackthis showed me

    It appears you DO have a virus.

    Open HiJackThis. Click "Scan". Put a checkmark next to:

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Yahoo Messenger] NETSTATT.EXE

    Close ALL browser windows and click "Fix checked."

    Restart your computer.



    ***NOTE*** Disable any active resident Anti-virus program before running the scans

    Run at least one of these two on-line anti-virus programs.

    As applicable, make sure the "heuristics" and "Auto Clean" boxes are checked.

    If anything's found, allow it to clean the file. If it's "uncleanable" DELETE everything the virus scan finds.

    Re-start the computer between each scan.


    Trend Micro's free on-line scan

    Panda's free on-line scan

    Restart and post another HiJackThis log and we'll fix whatever's left.

    Open HiJackThis. Click "Scan". Put a checkmark next to:

    O4 - HKCU\..\RunOnce: [Yahoo Messenger] NETSTATT.EXE

    Close ALL browser windows and click "Fix checked."


    Restart your computer. Follow the instructions below to get the ENTIRE log...you've inadvertantly left off the top half of both HiJackThis logs.


    You have an outdated version of HiJackThis. (It's currently at v1.98.2)

    To update HiJackThis:

    Open the program. click "Config..." --> "Misc. Tools" --> "Check for Update Online".

    Or:

    Please go to the link below and download HiJackThis:

    http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html



    ***NOTE***Do not FIX anything without a log analyzer's guidance. MOST of what's listed is necessary for your computer to operate normally.

    Under "Official Downloads" HiJackThis. It's the 2nd one down.

    Download and unzip to a permanent folder of your own creation.

    Open HiJackThis. Click "Scan". Then, in the lower left corner, click "Save Log".

    Save it to your permanent HiJackThis folder (or floppy disk if necessary).

    The log will open in Notepad. Click "Edit" then "Select All".

    Copy and paste the log back to this thread.

    Please post another HiJack
    This log.

    There were a couple things we should address.

    Uninstall WeatherBug. (First right-click on the icon in the system tray and exit the program).

    Before we start, let's disable your System Restore. After the infection's been cleaned re-enable system restore.


    Disabling System Restore in Windows XP Disable System Restore in Windows ME

    IF, for some reason, you lose the ability to use IE or lose your internet connection...open HJT-->"Config"-->"Backups"-->"Restore".


    Open HiJackThis. Click "Scan". Put a checkmark next to these:

    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant =

    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch

    R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

    O2 - BHO: AIM Helper - {D70E6A20-7060-4829-B3D7-B6624A1DE7C6} - C:\Program Files\AIM Toolbar\aimhelper.dll (file missing)

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Weather] C:\PROGRA~1\AWS\WEATHE~1\Weather.exe 1


    Close ALL browser windows (except HiJackThis ;) ) and click "Fix checked."

    Re-start your computer into safe mode:

    How to start your computer in Safe Mode

    NEXT:

    Because XP will not always show you hidden files and folders by default, Go to Start > Search 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".


    NEXT:

    Find and delete:

    WeatherBug folder


    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\ <user's name>\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. Now click the "Delete Cookies" button and click OK.


    Empty the Recycle Bin


    Post another HJT log.





    To replace WeatherBug with an adware-free weather program:

    This one's recommended by Flrman1. I use it with WeatherWatcher.
