Solved Error 'http 404' when trying to download HIJACKTHIS from your website

Post by jburton on Fri 09 Jul 2010, 4:58 pm

First topic message reminder :

hello ! first, let me start off by saying you guys are Awesome! I spent several hours on my husbands laptop after he encountered the 'security master av' issue.. I happened to stumble across your website and downloaded a malwarebytes program that has seemed to have fixed everything!.. that being said - our home computer is decently old but has always worked fine, up until about 2 weeks ago.. it started slowing down. Now its to the point where it takes 3 minutes just to bring up the task manager.. today I couldnt open Spybot to run it and when I was searching online it kept redirecting me to other search engines. I seen a post by dr. inferno to download and paste a Hijackthis log but when i click on the link, im getting a page not found error.. when i googled it.. it started spinning me off into these search engines so i dont feel comfortable downloading it from anywhere else. can you help ?

thanks

  • Now click on Advanced Settings and select the following:


    • Scan for potentially unwanted applications
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth Technology

Your Physical Memory is 256. For XP. You should have at least 512 of Physical Memory. That is the main factor of the performance. I do want to see the ESET scan.

The search redirections should have stopped now. But your PC is slow at start up?

This might speed things up.

    Download and install CCleaner
  • CCleaner
  • Double-click on the downloaded file ccsetup220_slim.exe and install the application.
  • Keep the default installation folder C:\Program Files\CCleaner
  • Click finish when done and close ALL PROGRAMS
  • Start the CCleaner program.
  • Click on Registry and Uncheck Registry Integrity so that it does not run (basically the very top, uncheck it)
  • Click on Options - Advanced and Uncheck "Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours"
  • Click back to Cleaner and under SYSTEM uncheck the Memory Dumps and Windows Log Files
  • Click on Run Cleaner button on the bottom right side of the program.
  • Click OK to any prompts



Looking over your log it seems you don't have any evidence of an anti-virus software.

Anti-virus software are programs that detect cleans and erase harmful virus files on a computer
Web server or network.
Unchecked virus files can unintentionally be forwarded to others including trading partners and thereby spreading infection. Because new viruses regularly emerge anti-virus software should be updated frequently. Anti-virus software can scan the computer memory and disk drives for malicious code. They can alert the user if a virus is present and will clean delete (or quarantine) infected files or directories.Please download this free anti-virus software...



  • Avira AntiVir Personal - Free anti-virus software for Windows. Detects and removes more than 50000 viruses. Free support.


Perform a full scan with Avira and let it delete everything it is finding.
Then reboot.
After reboot, open your Avira and select "reports".
There doubleclick the report from the Full scan you have done. Click the "Report File" button and copy and paste this report in your next reply.

Your logs are fine. As for the slow start ups are not malware related. At the end of this post is a link that will help.

Please Uninstall logitec desktop messenger from add/remove you don't need it! Logitech is not a virus or anything, but it uses unnecessary system resources in your computer. And it's not used anymore as well.

To remove all of the tools we used and the files and folders they created, please do the following:
Please download OTC.exe by OldTimer:

  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click OTC.exe.

Your Computer is Clean



Some final items:

To remove all of the tools we used and the files and folders they created, please do the following:
Please download OTC.exe by OldTimer:

  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click OTC.exe.
  • Click the CleanUp! button.
  • If you are prompted to Reboot during the cleanup, select Yes.
  • The tool will delete itself once it finishes.

Note: If any tool, file or folder (belonging to the program we have used) hasn't been deleted, please delete it manually.

Here are some additional links for you to check out to help you with your computer security.

Browsers

Just because your computer came loaded with Internet Explorer doesn't mean that you have to use it, there are other free alternatives, FIREFOX and OPERA, both are free to use and are more secure than IE.

If you are using firefox you can stay more secure by adding NoScript and WOT (Web Of Trust)

NoScript stops Java scripts from starting on a web page unless you give permission for them, and WOT (Web Of Trust) has a comprehensive list of ratings for different websites allowing you to easily see if a website that you are about to go to has a bad reputation; in fact it will warn you to check if you are sure that you want to continue to a bad website.

  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
  • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
  • Click once on the Security tab
  • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
  • Click once on the Custom Level button.
  • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
  • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
  • Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
  • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
  • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
  • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
  • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button
  • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
  • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.


Additional Security Measures


Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

SpywareBlaster- SpywareBlaster will add a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

Cookienator- Scans your PC for tracking cookies in multiple browsers as well as in Adobe Flash.

Secunia software inspector & update checker
