  1. As talked about .... Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant and Windows Presentation Foundation, all versions, for all applications. Reason: remote code execution vulnerability "fix" is here: http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/article08-600
  2. Did you report a problem to your ISP? Are you sending 'spam' email that you don't know you're sending? Are you downloading and sharing with a P2P application? Yes, more questions that need answers for the 'auditing' (if it's legit from your ISP)
  3. See if Auslogics will work for you http://www.auslogics.com/disk-defrag
  4. Info on 818.exe (Trojan.DelfInject) You have a Backdoor Trojan This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files. I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation. Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS.
  5. I'm using Avira Premium Security Suite on both my Vista and Win7. I give it two thumbs up (I'd also stay away from Dell)
  6. Hi Terry, you can always post a HJT log ... we'll get to you! Sometimes it's not as easy as you think with all the different malware running amok to just post 'clean-up tools'. Some nasties need specialty tools and we're always on the look out for variations or mutations of this type of malware. It's not like the good old days when it was just simple spyware that we were dealing with. Now it's Bruce's turn to tell your parents about Linux
  7. After you've done the above, restore your original Hosts file: Download the HostsXpert 4.3 - Hosts File Manager. Unzip HostsXpert 4.3 - Hosts File Manager to a convenient folder such as C:\HostsXpert Click HostsXpert.exe to Run HostsXpert 4.3 - Hosts File Manager from its new home Click "Make Hosts Writable?" in the upper right corner (If available). Click Restore Microsoft's Hosts file and then click OK. Click the X to exit the program. Note: If you were using a custom Hosts file you will need to replace any of those entries yourself.
  8. Disable Comodo and turn on Windows firewall. See if you can get SP3 to download and install with that configuration.
  9. ummm .... our chairs are facing different directions ... mine just has a different view
  10. SuperAntiSpyware isn't ready to work with Win7, yet .... I received an email from them when I asked in support.
  11. Right click on Computer and choose properties:
  12. Hopefully there is info here for you: http://turbotax.intuit.com/support/kb/upda...5.html?lid=stic
  13. What Firewall are you using? Even if you're behind a router, you should be running a software firewall too. Free ZoneAlarm is what I use on my XP machine: http://www.filehippo.com/download_zonealarm_free/ Did you test your machine with Shields Up? https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2 After installing ZoneAlarm, try testing again.
  14. BTW ... did you follow these instructions? There is a tab at the top of the page to ask a question on their site. http://pinnacle.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/pinna...p?p_faqid=15605
  15. I don't see it in my Add/Remove Programs either, but I know it's been installed and SP3 is the one that is showing.
  16. We have apparently one brave soul who is going to download it and let us know. The general consensus right now is to let it be... don't download until we find out more about it. Apparently it's been around for awhile, but it just showed up as a Windows 'important' update. More info here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/951847
  17. I'm asking questions and checking into it poru.
  18. Have you checked your drivers? Are they up to date? How many USB devices do you have plugged in? Try removing the hardware (printer, flash drive, etc), 'safely'. Tell us if you still get a BSOD on startup with extra devices removed.
  19. Your logs look fine. Your Java is out of date and vulnerable to malware attacks. Updating Java: Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6.

Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed. Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6u11-windows-i586-p.exe to install the newest version.
