My HJT Log I have a Trojan ?


Recommended Posts

Hi JonTom

Well I did it! I completely reinstalled my system! Wowzer.....it took 10 hours by the time I did all of the Windows updates, updated IE to 8 even if I don't use it, I find Google Chrome to be a lot faster. I also added AVG, Superantispyware, MalwareBytes, and Spybot Search and Destroy. Can you suggest anything else I could add on to keep myself from getting into trouble again? As much as I respect you guys for all of your time and effort for all of the help that you give to all who ask, I hope to not have to be asking for help anytime soon again! :) So just thought I would let you know how I made out with the reinstall and to wish you a very Merry Christmas again and a Happy and healthy New Year! Thank you gain JonTom and thank you PCPitStop...love you guys!

Hello Carline


I'm glad your machine is now back up and running well :)


Can you suggest anything else I could add on to keep myself from getting into trouble again?

SuperAntiSpware, MBAM and Spybot are all good programs, as is AVG.


I tend to recommend one of the following AV programs when prompted, but if you are happy with AVG thats fine. Please make sure you only have one real time AV running on your machine.

I hope to not have to be asking for help anytime soon again!



I will leave you with some general preventative tips below.


Have a great festive season, best wishes for 2012 :xmas_smile:
