Suspected Spyware And Other Baddies[RESOLVED]

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks

I suspect that my PC is infected with Spyware, Trojans, etc.

I wanted to post a HJT logfile for the experts to examine but I have come

across the following problem:

When I do a scan with HJT the scan does not complete. It simply stops

responding just before the scan reaches the end.

I have uninstalled and re-installed but the problem persists.

I would really appreciate good advice on how to resolve this problem.

Thanks.

Gerry

Hello and Welcome to the forums. :)

I am MoNsTeReNeRgY22 and I will be assisting you with your computer problem today.

I need you to rename Hijackthis.

  • Please go to the folder where you saved Hijackthis.exe:
  • Right-click on it, then select Rename.
  • Please rename it to energy.exe
  • Then double-click energy.exe to scan and then post the new logfile.

Hi

Thanks for taking the time to assist me in this.

My attempts to rename the folder failed.

( I rightclicked on the name, then on Rename, but nothing happens)

In the hope that it would assist you I have attached screenprints of the

following:

1. A scan by HJT. From this you will see that it stops short of the end

and does not complete. It simply stops responding.

2. Copy of the folders that are on the PC.

(In my attempts to rename the folder I have rightclicked on the first

name (HijackThis.exe, dated 09/03/03), then on Rename - no

response).

Your further instructions will be appreciated.

Thanks.

(Note: I still use Win98SE on this particular machine, for certain tasks)
