Please help!:)

Recently, I've been having issues with my computer again. :( The problem this time is that IE runs terribly slow, and downloads from Kazaa are next to impossible to complete because they're so slow. I have a 525 mhz processor in my computer, and am hooked up to DSL, so this should not be happening..I used to be able to load pages in no time.

I ran virus scan on my computer, and it found two files infected with the PE Hantaner A virus. I cleaned and deleted these files...but I was wondering if there is anything else I need to do in order to get the virus out of my system and more permanently keep it away? Is this the reason my computer's internet connection has been so very slow?

Thanks so much in advance!:)

Hi Alayna, Welcome to TSG.

First, dump KaZaa. It's full of spy/mal ware and downloads all sort of crap onto your system.

KaZaa Lite is an alternative:

Second, because of KaZaa, who knows what's on your pc. Go here and donload Hijack This and follow the instructions for scanning your system and then posting the scan log here so folks can take a look,

What is the difference between KaZaa and KaZaa Lite? I am a big fan of MP3's, so that is why I haven't deleted the program yet, even though the pop-ups slow down my system.

Thanks ever so!

Hi Alayna.....the only difference between KaZaa and KaZaa Lite is that the Lite version has all of the spy/ad/mal ware stuff removed. You'll be better off without it.

If you decide to switch, use this application to remove Kazaa before downloading the Lite version:

Okay, now onto your log. It actually looks pretty good. You can have HJT fix the following items. Close your browser, check the items in HJT, click fix.

Reboot.


R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing


O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MS Updates] C:\DOCUME~1\ALAYNA~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\aupd.exe


...after rebooting, delete the following file:

aupd.exe


Not sure this is cause of your sluggishness, so post back.

:)
