Just want to make sure I'm not infected (Windows XP SP3).

Go to solution Solved by AdvancedSetup,

Recommended Posts


My computer is running on Windows XP Professional SP3 32-bit operating system.

I would only like to make sure my machine doesn't have any obvious signs of infection or other major problems.

To this post, I am attaching the following logs: FRST, Addition and Malwarebytes Threat Scan (standard, but with the "scan for rootkits" option enabled).

I have renamed the FRST.exe file to FRST.english.exe. Other than that, I made no changes - the scan included Registry, Services, Drivers, Processes, Internet, Addition.txt and "One month" was selected by default, too (that's something new?).

Thank you in advance.

PS. Happy New Year to the whole Malwarebytes Staff!

Hello @Sniktbub

I do not see anything obvious to indicate there is any type of infection on the system. The only obvious thing seen was this service installed at one point into the %temp% folder. No programs or services should be installed to the %temp% folder.

S3 cpuz140; \??\C:\DOCUME~1\adam\USTAWI~1\Temp\cpuz140\cpuz140_x32.sys [X]

Unless there is something else all seems okay at this time.

Thank you

Please make a new System Restore Point, then follow the directions below.


Please download the attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop or location where you ran FRST from.
NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST or FRST64, and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

Please make sure you disable any real time antivirus or security software before running this script. Once completed make sure you re-enable it.

NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on this particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system that cannot be undone.

Run FRST or FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait.
If the tool needs a restart please make sure you let the system restart normally and let the tool complete its run after restart.
The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt) or wherever you ran FRST from. Please attach or post it to your next reply.

Note: If the tool warned you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version.

NOTE-1:  This fix will run a scan to check that all Microsoft operating system files are valid and not corrupt and attempt to correct any invalid files. It will also run a disk check on the restart to ensure disk integrity. Depending on the speed of your computer this fix may take 30 minutes or more.

NOTE-2: As part of this fix all temporary files will be removed. If you have any open web pages that have not been bookmarked please make sure you bookmark them now as all open applications will be automatically closed. Also, make sure you know the passwords for all websites as cookies will also be removed. The use of an external password manager is highly recommended instead of using your browser to store passwords.

The following directories are emptied:

  • Windows Temp
  • Users Temp folders
  • Edge, IE, FF, Chrome and Opera caches, HTML5 storages, Cookies and History
  • Recently opened files cache
  • Flash Player cache
  • Java cache
  • Steam HTML cache
  • Explorer thumbnail and icon cache
  • BITS transfer queue (qmgr*.dat files)
  • Recycle Bin

Important: items are permanently deleted. They are not moved to quarantine. If you have any questions or concerns please ask before running this fix.

The system will be rebooted after the fix has run.

As I'm sure you're aware, Windows XP has not been supported now for a very long time and even accessing many secure sites is no longer supported on XP.

If or when you're able to move to a newer OS that would probably be wise, but if you're going to stay on XP then you really should be looking at using Imaging software to backup the system to an external drive in case you need to restore the computer some day. Doing a fresh install would be very difficult to complete at this point.

The log is okay?

Yes, I am aware of it, of course. I'm using a browser that was adapted for XP needs and it keeps getting new updates, but still can't access every website; you're correct.

Thank you for the links. I'm going to read those threads and consider using that Imaging software you've mentioned.
