    Hi. I have Spybot S&D, Ad-aware, Spywareblaster and Spywareguard all installed and up to date. I also have NAV, and check for updates daily.

    My machine is really sluggish the last couple of days so I did the Pest Patrol online scan and it found 20 items from something called BingoFun games, and they say it's adware.

    Anyway, I would appreciate it if someone here could take a look at my HijackThis log and let me know if there's anything there that I need to fix. Thank you in advance!

    Hi Liberty,

    Before you start please unzip hijackthis.exe to a folder of it´s own. The program creates backups in the folder it is in. In a Temp folder they easily disappear.

    Check the following items in HijackThis.
    Close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {549B5CA7-4A86-11D7-A4DF-000874180BB3} - (no file)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {FDD3B846-8D59-4ffb-8758-209B6AD74ACC} - (no file)

    O4 - Startup: PowerReg Scheduler V3.exe

    Then reboot. Can you tell me where PestPatrol found these files (Full path and Filenames)
    Also do a Find Files for 'ipsp.dll'
    If you find the file, rightclick it and let me now what it says on the version tab.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Hi, and sorry I took so long to reply.

    The ipsp.dll file is part of a parental control filter called iProtectYou. It was disabled at the time I did the HJT scan, so maybe that's why the broken internet access entry was there.

    Just for the sake of knowing, what were the 3 entries you had me get rid of?

    I couldn't copy and paste the online scan results from PP, but there were 20 entries from the registry that they listed as being BingoFun games. None of them had any part of the name Bingofun in them however. They all were Xceed software entries.

    I did some digging and they (Xceed) list microsoft as one of their clients. On the Microsoft site I found that Xceed components are used in the .Net program on WinXP. Sure enough, there is an Xceed file in the system32 folder, and there are also Xceed files in Microsoft Office11. Is it still ad/spyware? I would like to find out. :D

    Do you think I should still post another HJT log? Let me know.

    Thanks for your help! :D

    Hi Liberty,

    I am not aware of xceed bundling or being spyware:
    http://www.xceedsoft.com/Products/

    The items I had you remove were two orphaned registry entries and one registration reminder.

    Regards,
