    I launched FF today and went to yahoo. In the lower left corner of the browser the following was listed:

    reading speed.pointroll.com

    What the heck is this? Is it spyware? :confused: I did a hijackthis logfile and searched through it and didn't see anything 'different' than usual. I've looked at my logfiles enough times to 'almost' spot anything suspicious---in which I come here usually to find out what it is. ;)

    So should I worry about this, or is it nothing?

    Thanks. :)

    hi, welcome to TSG.

    Download hijack this from the link below.Please do this. Click here:

    http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/hijackthis_sfx.exe

    to download HijackThis. Click scan and save a logfile, then post it here so
    we can take a look at it for you. Don't click fix on anything in hijack this
    as most of the files are legitimate.

    your log is clean. Lets run a few tools to see if it clears this up?


    what's a noogie when it's at home? ;)


    Download the Hoster from: http://members.aol.com/toadbee/hoster.zip. UnZip
    the file and press "Restore Original Hosts" and press "OK". Exit Program.

    www.funkytoad.com/download/hoster.zip


    get the hosts file from here.



    http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm


    put it into :


    Windows XP = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
    Windows 2K = C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
    Win 98\ME = C:\WINDOWS



    * Download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite here


    http://www.ewido.net/en/

    * Install ewido.
    * During the installation, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".
    * Launch ewido
    * It will prompt you to update click the OK button and it will go to the main screen
    * On the left side of the main screen click update
    * Click on Start and let it update.
    * DO NOT run a scan yet. You will do that later in safe mode.


    *Download Cleanup from Here

    http://www.stevengould.org/software/cleanup/download.html



    * A window will open and choose SAVE, then DESKTOP as the destination.
    * On your Desktop, click on Cleanup40.exe icon.
    * Then, click RUN and place a checkmark beside "I Agree"
    * Then click NEXT followed by START and OK.
    * A window will appear with many choices, keep all the defaults as set when the Slide Bar to the left is set to Standard Quality.
    * Click OK
    * DO NOT RUN IT YET



    * Click here for info on how to boot to safe mode if you don't already know
    how.

    http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPOR...2001052409420406?OpenDocument&src=sec_doc_nam



    * Now copy these instructions to notepad and save them to your desktop. You
    will need them to refer to in safe mode.


    * Restart your computer into safe mode now. Perform the following steps in
    safe mode:



    have hijack this fix these entries. close all browsers and programmes before
    clicking FIX.


    O16 - DPF: {04E214E5-63AF-4236-83C6-A7ADCBF9BD02} (HouseCall Control) - http://housecall60.trendmicro.com/housecall/xscan60.cab


    * Run Ewido:

    * Click on scanner
    * Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
    * During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK
    * When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
    * Save the report to your desktop


    * Run Cleanup:

    * Click on the "Cleanup" button and let it run.
    * Once its done, close the program.



    Run an online antivirus check from

    http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner

    choose extended database for the scan!



    Run ActiveScan online virus scan here

    http://www.pandasoftware.com/products/activescan.htm

    When the scan is finished, anything that it cannot clean have it delete it.
    Make a note of the file location of anything that cannot be deleted so you
    can delete it yourself.
    - Save the results from the scan!



    post another hijack this log, the ewido and active scan logs

    Oh wow... that may be WAY over my head! Oh, and last time I tried to get into windows safe mode---the machine went haywire. lol

    :confused:

    So you think I have to download and install all that stuff? :confused: It's a bit overwhelming.

    I've heard that kaspersky is good.

    Also, why the AOL thingy? AOL isn't my ISP---I just have the instant messenger program, which I really never use.

    Thanks so much for your help, Khazars! Sorry to be such a noob, but knowing me... I'd do something to really mess things up! lol

    Now, what's the host file from AOL for exactly?

    it's not the hosts file, it's called the hoster, it basically repairs the hosts file, plus I have given yuo a link to download a hosts file which will block sites like the one you mentioned!

    Oh, and I have a laptop that does tend to go here and there with me, etc., and that site where you get the hosts files from seems to imply this could be a problem?

    So what are those first two zipped files? are those hosts files, too? Sorry, so confused. :confused:

    Well, the AOL hosts zip file wasn't a valid file, and the point roll thingy is still here. Now my machine, browser, etc. is running very, very slow. :(

    Now what?
