Hi there,
with regards to my query I copied and pasted below, I have done all as requested and my HiJackthis log file is now shown below.

Any assistance appreciated!

Previous message:

PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: Windows XP SP2
Problem Application Name & Version: NTL Broadband
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages: Page cannot be displayed and no OE retrieval of messages

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Hi. Am a newbie to the www web! I have broadband connection through my set-top box (NTL) and through USB EZconnect ethernet?

Usually my pc works fine and can browse the web, and retrieve emails through OE. Although for the past couple of months my connection has apparently dropped and get messages sayng 'cannot display page' on IE and not retrieveing messages on OE. Its says I am offline. When I go to Network Connections, it shows I am still connected.

Have tried pinging and works most of the time, although not always, but still cannot browse on IE.

Contact NTL who have done a series of tests and say there is nothing wrong with the connection. I usually have to restart pc to get a connection.

Can anyone help please.
regards
Chez

I suggest you read this excellent Hijack This HowTo.
Then download the program from http://www.tomcoyote.com/hjt/ and then post a log in a new thread in the Security and Viruses Forum.

Are you running two sets of firewalls??
I can see that you're running the TrueVector monitor from ZoneLabs and therefore it's acting as Zone Alarm would. Are you, by any chance, running the XP SP2 firewall on top of that and perhaps the built in Network Associates firewall??

If you're running more than one of them, you have to kill all but one. They're getting in each other's way.

Additionally, open up Windows Explorer and navigate your way to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc and have a look at a file called Hosts. Open it with Notepad and post the contents of that file with your next HJT log.

Now onto the log itself.

Start by disabling System Restore, which is something you can re-enable after the PC has been fixed.
Right click My Computer and select Properties.
Click the System Restore tab and in there disable it. Apply and OK out.

Furthermore, make sure that Windows Explorer is set to show hidden files and folders. Click Tools/Folder Options -> View and check Show hidden files and folders and uncheck Hide protected operating system files


Now download the following programs:

CWShredder
Spybot Search & Destroy
Ad-Aware
VX2 Cleaner
Stinger
About:Buster <-- you won't use this one until after we've made some amendments to your logfile.
Cleanup! <-- you won't use this one until after we've made some amendments to your logfile.

Now go to the following online AV scanners:

Rav Antivirus
Trend Antivirus
Panda Activescan

Let all of them delete what they want. Write down what they fail in dealing with.

Then run and update CWShredder. Click the Fixbutton and click OK when the prompt CWShredder will shutdown any open Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player windows. Click OK to continue appears.
Wait for it to finish and then click Next and Finish.

Now install, run, update and scan your system with Spybot S&D.
When it's done scanning, check all entries that are marked RED and click Fix Selected.

Then install Ad-Aware and update it right away. Then scan and let it fix whatever it reports.
Then shut down Ad-Aware.
Then install the VX2 Cleaner and let it install into the Ad-Aware program folder.
Start Ad-Aware again and click the AddOns button. Double click the VX2 Cleaner in there and click OK at the prompt.

If your computer is infected

Also, in reposnse to your questions, as above, only Zonealarm firewall is one. The Windows XP is disabled.

And I could not find a file called 'hosts'

Thanks

HOSTS::

Is this it?

# Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
#      102.54.94.97     rhino.acme.com          # source server
#       38.25.63.10     x.acme.com              # x client host

127.0.0.1       localhost

This is indeed it Smiley
And this file is clean as a whistle, thank heavens.

The same can be said for your HJT log. It's also clean as it can be Grin
Good job Cool
