    Here is an interesting site, self diagnosis for HJT...

    Be warned, I am only posting this under the caveat that it's a **rough** guide only.

    I checked my daughter's system and it came up clean, as some of the things it said "Could possibly be a nasty" I knew about [page sites, etc.]

    Actually it told me her IE was wrong version [which it is NOT].

    But I think this has a huge potential in maybe helping here with some self help first.

    *Once again This is a guide*

    Do a HJT scan, create log, copy and paste it into the blank window and hit Analyse, that's it. :)

    see pic.

    Edit: I am going to grab a copy of a HJT log from forum, one that's been fixed, and see what it comes up with ;)

    I've seen this. If it works it could be big.

    I've run across it too ... I think I saw the link in a members sig ...

    Anyway seems popular

    I just hope people use common sense when using this tool ... or it could end up more trouble than it's worth.

    Yes Ron, it could be.

    I discovered the site about 2 weeks ago, but decided not to post in case some people thought it entirely safe to do whatever it said.

    But with the advent of HJT being closed, I thought what the heck, if people are silly enough to blondly.....errrrr blindly follow ALL suggestions, they should have their PC License revoked ROFL...

    I tried and worked well.
    The only thing I didn't knew is the red marked editpad.

    I ran a few logfiles through it where it seemed rather accurate, but one really must see it as an indication and keep asking questions with every result, even the green ones.
    I mean, if i see even TDS and Agentsvr as suspicious in your analysis that thing can't be serious: certainly agentsvr is a normal microsoft msagent file which that analyser should recognise as being legal, and so there are more.
    But it's good to look extra at every entry with the opinion of that site at hand, but i would not see it as only opinion.
    Hoped it would have been better, it would have been a real great help!
    And yesterday i saw somebody's wireless connection running process as a red alarm to be fixed immediately, so the analysis is really not 100% yet.
    But the initiative is great, hope it gets updated to reliable soon.

    That is interesting Gerard.

    I have JGSoft's EditPad also and it never flagged for me. I have used Edit Pad for ages, on previous PC's.

    Check the file size/version with mine mate and see if it's same. Should be!
