Hijackthis log problems?


Recommended Posts

No you didn't have any virus in your computer. It was more of system configuration issues. You can use CCleaner to clean junk files as you wish, but try not to touch any registry cleaners because even if you have orphan keys in it, meaning keys that are no longer needed, it will not have any major impact on your system overall performance. It is best to leave it as it is.


Let's do some check up to make sure there are no remnants.


Go here to run an online scannner from ESET. Windows Vista/Windows 7 users will need to right click on their Internet Explorer shortcut, and select Run as Administrator

  • Note: For browsers other than Internet Explorer, you will be prompted to download and install esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe. Click on the link and save the file to a convenient location. Double click on it to install and a new window will open. Follow the prompts.
  • Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan
  • Tick the box next to YES, I accept the Terms of Use.
  • Click Start
  • When asked, allow the activex control to install
  • Click Start
  • Make sure that the option Remove found threats is unticked and the Scan Archives option is ticked.
  • Click on Advanced Settings, ensure the options Scan for potentially unwanted applications, Scan for potentially unsafe applications, and Enable Anti-Stealth Technology are ticked.
  • Click Scan
  • Wait for the scan to finish
  • When the scan is done, if it shows a screen that says "Threats found!", then click "List of found threats", and then click "Export to text file..."
  • Save that text file on your desktop. Copy and paste the contents of that log as a reply to this topic.
  • Close the ESET online scan, and let me know how things are now.


Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware here and save to your desktop.

  • Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program. (Note to Vista users, please right-click and select Run as Administrator.)
  • At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select Perform quick scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please copy and paste the log back into your next reply
  • The log can also be found here:

    C:Documents and SettingsUsernameApplication DataMalwarebytesMalwarebytes' Anti-MalwareLogsmbam-log-date (time).txt

  • Or via the Logs tab when Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is started.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts.

Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process.

If asked to restart the computer, please do so. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.




On your next reply please post :

Please STOP and let me know if you have any problems in performing with the steps above or any questions you may have.


Good Day!

That's ok. I do the same thing everyday too. In that case, maybe you might want to send to service center and have a check.


Now back to addressing the old issue. Avast. Have it uninstall and then reinstall and see what happens. If you haven't done that already.

We will leave it as it is. :-)


Now time for some house keeping.


Follow these steps to uninstall Combofix

  • Click START then RUN
  • Now copy/paste the code into the runbox and click OK. Note the space between the ..X and the /U, it needs to be there.
Combofix /Uninstall

Now to remove most of the tools that we have used in fixing your machine:

  • Download OTC to your desktop and run it
  • Click Yes to beginning the Cleanup process and remove these components, including this application.
  • You will be asked to reboot the machine to finish the Cleanup process. Choose Yes.


Thank you for your patience, and performing all of the procedures requested. I would also like to take this opportunity to apologize for any delay that may have occurred.





It is very important that you get all of the critical updates for your Operating System and Internet Explorer. Keeping your OS and browser up to date will help make you less susceptible to attacks by Trojans and viruses. Please go to Microsoft and download all the critical updates to help prevent possible re-infection.




It is good security practice to change your passwords to all your online accounts on a fairly regular basis, this is especially true after an infection. Refer to this Microsoft article

Strong passwords: How to create and use them and consider a password keeper, to keep all your passwords safe.




This is a good time to set up protection against further attacks. In light of your recent problem, I'm sure you'd like to avoid any future infections. Please read these well written articles:

To help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programs if you do not already have them:

  • WOT, Web of Trust, warns you about risky websites that try to scam visitors, deliver malware or send spam. Protect your computer against online threats by using WOT as your front-line layer of protection when browsing or searching in unfamiliar territory. WOT's color-coded icons show you ratings for 21 million websites, helping you avoid the dangerous sites:

  • Green to go
  • Yellow for caution
  • Red to stop

WOT has an add-on available for both Firefox and IE.

  • SpywareBlaster prevents the installation of ActiveX-based malware, blocks cookies, and restricts the actions of "bad" sites. See tutorial here
  • MVPS HOSTS FILE replaces your current HOSTS file with one that will restrict known ad sites from serving you unsolicited advertisements. It basically prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting the attempted connections to, which is the IP of your local computer. See guide here and for Windows Vista here

  • Download Host.zip and Save it to your Desktop.
  • Right-click hosts.zip and select 'Extract all files' or 'Extract files...'.
  • Follow the prompts and click 'Finish'.
  • This will open the newly created hosts folder on your Desktop.
  • Double-click on the included mvps.bat file, this will rename the existing HOSTS file to HOSTS.MVP, then it will copy the included updated HOSTS file to the correct location on your machine.
  • Once updated you should see another prompt that the task was completed.
Follow this list and keep your antivirus program and antispyware programs updated and scan with them on a regular basis. By doing so, your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.


Hopefully this should take care of your problems! Good luck.


Do you have any questions or problems to ask? Please do not hesitate to do so.


**Please respond this one more time to ensure it is resolved and close this topic.
