    Hi,
    At one time, I found a trusted web site or list that was posted on this forum that listed various processes that you would find running under task manager. This list told you what it was, where it was from, and if it was necessary to run. I can't seem to find this list anymore. Any suggestions?

    Just wanted to thank you for sending me those links. I tried the Process library and it was helpful. I am not sure of some of the processes that are running on my PC. I've added my hijack this log. Can anyone tell me if I need to have so many scv.exe's? Thanks!

    Multiple svchost.exe's is normal

    You may want to print this or save it to notepad as we will go to safe mode.

    Fix these with HJT – mark them, close IE, click fix checked

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NetMeter] C:\Program Files\NetRatingsNetmeter\NetMeter\NielsenOnline.exe

    O4 - Startup: PowerReg Scheduler.exe

    O16 - DPF: {0645D7F3-C20E-4E0B-A545-557527497C0B} (NMInstall Control) - http://a14.g.akamai.net/f/14/7141/1d...APANEL_USA.cab

    DownLoad http://www.downloads.subratam.org/KillBox.zip

    Restart your computer into safe mode now. (Tapping F8 at the first black screen) Perform the following steps in safe mode:

    Double-click on Killbox.exe to run it. Now put a tick by Standard File Kill. In the "Full Path of File to Delete" box, copy and paste each of the following lines one at a time then click on the button that has the red circle with the X in the middle after you enter each file. It will ask for confimation to delete the file. Click Yes. Continue with that same procedure until you have copied and pasted all of these in the "Paste Full Path of File to Delete" box.

    C:\Program Files\NetRatingsNetmeter

    Note: It is possible that Killbox will tell you that one or more files do not exist. If that happens, just continue on with all the files. Be sure you don't miss any.

    START – RUN – type in %temp% - OK - Edit – Select all – File – Delete

    Delete everything in the C:\Windows\Temp folder or C:\WINNT\temp

    Not all temp files will delete and that is normal
    Empty the recycle bin
    Boot and post a new log from normal NOT safe mode

    Please give feedback on what worked/didn’t work and the current status of your system

    My computer seems to be better, but please note that before I could even fix the selected files on the earlier HJT log, I had to do a system restore. (computer froze on the first black screen after shutting it down for the night)
    I also added a few programs:
    CWShredder (had a clean scan)
    and "ibprocman"
    Thanks for your help! Norton detected an attempt from a backdoor worm (?) and blocked it. Is there a chance that I have a worm or trojan horse that Norton did not detect?

    Download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite http://www.ewido.net/en/download/ (W2K/XP Only)
    · Install ewido.
    · Run the application
    · Click on scanner
    · Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
    · When the scan is finished, Set all items to delete
    · Apply all actions
    · look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
    · Save the report to your C: Drive
    This will take some time to run!
    RE-Boot
    Post that log and a new HiJack log
