    hi,

    Whenever I use flashGet I get under mentioned registry entry:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Stilesoft\NetCaptor\CurrentVersion\Browser Helper Objects\{A5366673-E8CA-11D3-9CD9-0090271D075B}

    In HJT's log, it appears as:

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {A5366673-E8CA-11D3-9CD9-0090271D075B} - (no file)

    I want to know whether this BHO is harmful or not? If so, then how to get rid of it.

    I suspect that my Internet speed goes slow when this registry entry is there.

    I tried to remove the registry entry mannually many times but whenever I run the FlashGet, it comes again.

    pls help!!!

    i cant analyze HJT logs but my guess is the BHO is from flashget and its for integration into some browser (ie, firefox, opera or whatever).

    It is rated as a legitimate(L) item by the CastleCops Team that maintains the Master BHO and Toolbar list. By legitimate it means it is not considered spyware/foistware, or other malware(X)

    I used that program for a long time and it never slowed down my internet...it did speed up the downloads. ;)

    If there is no file attached, as indicated by (no file) then there is no real reason not to fix it with HijackThis.

    Windows will try to load it into IE everytime you open a new browser window, so even if it isn't much it will slow you down.

    Regards,

    I re-installed the FlashGet after un-installing the running one.


    NOW, the HJT's log listed it as under which confirms that it is related with the FlashGet's file ' jccatch.dll' :

    O2 - BHO: IeCatch2 Class - {A5366673-E8CA-11D3-9CD9-0090271D075B} - C:\PROGRAM FILES\FLASHGET\JCCATCH.DLL

    May be FlashGet is using this jccatch.dll file to catch the URL of downloadable file on browser mouse click .. but not sure ...just guessing it.

    If it is the legitimate one then I think, there is no harm to ignore it.
