  1. Sorry that I couldn't get back faster. 1- current issues Things seem to be a little better (?) after I replaced the Hosts file. What I still have is mostly slow performance issues, like: *startup *web pages load too slow, *email msgs. hesitate before deleting in Thunderbird, *Firefox takes a while to start, *and sometimes it seems to lose one (only one) of the windows (web pages) left open in the previous session. 2- Old Stuff You had written: "Other programs you have installed that could be part of this problem are listed below: Ad-Aware Desktop Doctor Avast GearDrvs" Desktop Doctor is a C
  2. Thnx, I did what you asked. (1) Here's the HJT log Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2 Scan saved at 5:45:54 PM, on 12/8/2008 Platform: Windows XP SP3 (WinNT 5.01.2600) MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16735) Boot mode: Safe mode with network support Running processes: C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\ZoneLabs\vsmon.exe C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware\aawservice.exe C:\Program Files\Spyware Doctor\pctsAu
  3. (1) The 'possible hijack' infections Spyware Dr. had found were (all at 127.0.0.1): engine.awaps.net aj.daniweb.com dl.jingmin.com ads.techguy.org ar.atwola.com wdcs.trendmicro.com metrics.experts-exchange.com a.networkworld.com (2) I had managed to remove the old (troublesome HJT) while I was in safe mode yesterday. I downloaded a fresh one this morning (after performing the other procedures you asked) at: http://www.download.com/Trend-Micro-Hijack...4-10379544.html Same problem. I hit 'install' and my computer freezes. I turn it off and on again and try to start HJT from the desktop, but it
  4. Thank you for your explanations. My Spyware Dr. is licensed and supposedly fully functional. I have reported the problem (inability to remove hijacking malware) to their support, but I am not getting much in the way of a resolution yet. I just tried to open the '.bat' file, but it won't open... still 'flashing' a window and disappearing. What do you want me to do next ?
  5. I ran Spyware Dr. in safe mode. It discovered some Hijack items which it could not clean up. I am going to try to upload scan results. ...I could not upload (size limitations)... any suggestions ? Thnx.

  7. I'm sorry, I am going sound a little stupid here.... but like what ?... what are "file sharing software" ??
  8. Yes, the last I looked. 1- My Spyware Dr. freezes my computer when I run a Full Scan. 2- I cannot remove or run HJT. 3- my computer acts funny: slow startup and surfing; quick flashing and disappearing windows, etc.
  9. Done. mbam_log_2008_12_05__17_42_07_.txt mbam_log_2008_12_05__17_42_07_.txt
  10. Thanks for your reply. You guys must be very busy. I had posted a later version of this issue the next day. It said: "1- the mbam-log and 2- the Panda log. However the Panda interface was not the same as in the illustration, and now they only allow access to level-1 threats log (included). Level-2 threats showed: cookie/Adv. Tracking latent Adware/cws adware latent but would not allow me to save it. 3- HJT is freezing my computer when I try to install it (tried several times). I also had installed a earlier copy the program on my machine a couple of weeks ago when I started noticing problems.
  11. Below is my entry (yesterday) b4 including the required logs. Now I am uploading 1- the mbam-log and 2- the Panda log.

  12. My Spyware Doctor found some malware (a hijack) while running a 'deep scan', but it could not remove it. The matter has been reported and followed up with their tech support for a couple of weeks... but no results yet. The malware does not show up in a regular scan. And now when I run a 'deep scan', my computer freezes. Associated problems: 1- slow startup 2- Spyware Dr. starts even slower 3- Firefox acts funny, slow, and loses one open window from the previous session Thanks for your help.
