Operating System Version: Windows XP Home SP1
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:

Hi Im usuing Hijack This version 1.97.7 I have these 3 things in my C drive that I dont know where they came from and I believe that they are bad. I ran adaware and Spybot and they could not fix the problem. I did a system restore, and still these things stay. I deleted them, and when I restart they are back. I think they are causing me not to be able to view videos. I get a page saying "This page cannot be displayed" when I try.

This is what my log looks like. I took a screen shot. I also have a screen shot of what the 3 things are in my C drive.

The 3 bad guys:

And then when I open up the two text files, this is what they look like:

And here is a screen shot of my log:

I scan my entire computer nightly using PC Cillin 2002 which came with my computer. It hasnt found a virus so I need help.
Could this be causing me not to be able to view video?
What should I delete out of my log?

Hi Renew,
You have Peper Trojan
Can you please download this uninstaller
Save to desktop
Double click to run-----Find and Fix---Reboot when prompted
Run this twice----Restarting your computer each time

 The best thing you could do right now, Just to ensure your
malware free is do an Online Scan at Housecall's

The latest version of Spybot is 1.3
The latest build of AD-Aware is 6.181 Internal build 251

Make sure that both are up---to---date

Next: Set Ad-Aware for a Custom Scan
click the gear wheel at the top and check these options:

General> activate these: "Automatically save log-file" and "Automatically quarantine objects prior to removal"

Scanning > activate these: "Scan within archives", "Scan active processes", "Scan registry", "Deep scan registry", "Scan my IE Favorites for banned sites" and "Scan my Hosts file"

Tweaks > Scanning Engine> activate this: "Unload recognized processes during scanning."

Tweaks > Cleaning Engine: activate these: "Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion" and "Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."

Click "Proceed" to save your settings, then click "Start", make sure "Activate in-depth scan" is ticked green then scan your system. When the scan is finished, the screen will tell you if anything has been found, click "Next". The bad files will be listed, right click the pane and click "Select all objects" - this will put a check mark in the box at the side, click "Next" again and click "OK" at the prompt "# objects will be removed. Continue?".

RESTART you computer and then Post back with a FRESH hijackthis log
Post it in your reply please---The WHOLE contents
Version # and operating system header--includes date of scan
