Another Newbie Hijack Log[RESOLVED]

Recommended Posts

Your log is clean.

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:

Detect and Remove Programs:

  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.

Prevention Programs:

  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • IE/Spyad <= IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
    I also suggest that you delete any files from "temp", "tmp" folders. In Internet Explorer, click on "Tools" => "Internet Options" => "Delete Files" and select the box that says "Delete All Offline Content" and click on "OK" twice. Also, empty the recycle bin by right clicking on it and selecting "Empty Recycle Bin". These steps should be done on a regular basis.

Other necessary Programs:

  • AntiVirus Program<= An AntiVirus program is a must! Whether it is a free version like AVG or Anti-Vir, or a shareware version like Norton or Kapersky, this is a must have.
  • Firewall<= A firewall is definatley a must have. Three good free versions are Kerio, Sygate and ZoneLabs.

Thanks so much, ROCK... you rock!! :thumbsup:

Quick question... I have been using Spybot S&D and the IE-SPYAD recommends that you use only one of the three of Spybot, Spywareblaster or IE-SPYAD. Do you prefer one over the others, or should I get rid of Spybot and use both Spywareblaster and IE-SPYAD??? Just wondering what you think is best. You gave me a good list, but I don't want to install everything and have conflicts if you only meant that I should utilize one or two of them.

Thanks again. Is there a donation spot for you or this site? Or should I donate to VundoFix or one of the other programs that you had me utilize?

Thanks,

Ben
