Hello All, As some of you may have seen in other posts I have done in this forum, I just recently reformatted my computer (as in a few days ago). I practice very safe surfing so this, to me, is crazy and I need to understand how this is happpening. I am at a loss right now. In any event, I just ran some scans with Ad-Aware, Spybot S&D, and MSAS. So to get to the point, Lavasoft's Ad-Aware found 518 critical objects of which 512 are in my registry! Spybot found only one thing and MSAS found nothing. I have very few programs installed at the moment, but I am a bit freaked out by all this. In any event, the most activity seems to be picked up by Ad-Aware (strangely enough) as normally Spybot and MSAS seem to pick up more stuff. The Ad-Aware scan reveals that there have been a LOT of entries made to my registry under this key... HKEY_CURRENT_USER:Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains Of which there are a TON of entries to sites that do not look good, to say the least. I currently have installed on my system... Analog X Script Defender ATI Catalyst 5.1 Drivers BOClean Cacheman CCleaner Creative Soundblaster Live! sound drivers Driver Cleaner Pro NOD32 Ad-Aware MSAS Microsoft Bootvis MS Office 2003 Pro Mozilla Thunderbird Mozilla Firefox Quick Time Spybot S&D Spywareblaster Spywareguard Total Uninstall WinRar MSN Messenger 7.0 Using HpGuru's HOSTS File And that is about it aside from my Data and Games (mostly Steam related) on a separate partition. The only other thing that I can think of is that I used a program called "Safe XP" which is supposed to help lock down your system. But now it makes me wonder. I have only used IE to get Critical Updates and that is it. ALL of my surfing is done with FF exclusively. I did not get ANY WARNINGS regarding browser hijack attempts (as this scan states that I had) from MSAS, Spywareguard etc as they are resident protection on my pc right now. So in any event, should I get rid of all this crap my pc? Could Ad-Aware be reporting false postives? Or is Ad-Aware that much better than the other two Spybot and MSAS. I am going to upload a text file with what was found during this scan. If some of you guys could please help me with this it is much appreciated. Also if you know of any programs aside from what I have that will protect me from this, please let me know as I am ready to drop some money down now. The strange thing is that scans on my other pc's were fine it was just this one, which I used Safe XP on. I wonder if there is some junk in this program. Thanks in advance for any/all replies and help. Best Regards, Jag PLEASE NOTE: I could not post the whole file as I am only allowed 100k for a text file upload and my file size was 111k. So I deleted out some of it so it would allow me to post it here so that you guys could see it. Thanks.
