    I have been having problems with a dialer called XXXSERVER which deposits porn onto my computer and a dialer which dials up the internet randomly and also cuts off me when I’m trying to use the internet.

    I have followed some instructions to clean up my computer part of which was to install and run Ad Aware 6.0, Spybot Search & Destroy and Hijackthis. I have run thess and the Hijackthis log is shown below. I would be grateful if you could check it and tell me what I need to do next.

    thanks very much.

    boot into safe mode by following instructions here: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001052409420406
    then as some of the files or folders you need to delete may be hidden do this:
    Open Windows Explorer & Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked.

    Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and untick "hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
    Click "Apply" then "OK"

    Run hijackthis, tick these entries listed below and ONLY these entries, double check to make sure, then make sure all browser & email

    windows are closed and press fix checked


    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Update] C:\WINDOWS\lsass.exe /i

    Delete these files

    C:\WINDOWS\lsass.exe
    C:\DOCUMENTS & SETTINGS\user name\LOCAL SETTINGS\Temp\msnmsgr.exe <<<<<<< select & delete EVERYTHING in the temp folder


    then
    Reboot normally &

    Download and unzip or install these programs/applications if you haven't already got them. If you have them, then make sure they are

    updated and configured as described

    Spybot - Search & Destroy from http://security.kolla.de
    AdAware 6 from http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download


    Run Sybot S&D

    After installing, first press Online, press search for updates, then tick the updates it finds, then press download updates. Beside the download

    button is a little down pointed arrow, select one of the servers listed. If it doesn't work or you get an error message then try a different server

    Next, close all Internet Explorer and OE windows, press 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds that is marked in RED.

    then reboot &

    Run ADAWARE

    Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the "webupdate".
    the current ref file should read at least 01R303 08.05.2004 or a higher number/later date

    Then ........

    Make sure the following settings are made and on -------"ON=GREEN"
    From main window :Click "Start" then " Activate in-depth scan"

    then......

    click "Use custom scanning options>Customize" and have these options on: "Scan within archives" ,"Scan active processes","Scan registry",

    "Deep scan registry" ,"Scan my IE Favorites for banned URL" and "Scan my host-files"

    then.........

    go to settings(the gear on top of AdAware)>Tweak>Scanning engine and tick "Unload recognized processes during scanning"

    ...........then........"Cleaning engine" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot"

    then...... click "proceed" to save your settings.

    Now to scan it´s just to click the "Scan" button.

    When scan is finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose"select all" from the drop down menu)

    then press next and then say yes to the prompt, do you want to remove all these entries.

    reboot again

    it is vital that you go here, click Scan for

    updates
    in the main frame, and download and install all CRITICAL updates recommended.


    then post a new hijackthis log to check what is left

    I have now gone through the instructions I received from Derek yesterday, including scanning with Spybot S&D and Adaware. I finally did another scan with Hijackthis. The log of which is shown below. Can you tell me if there is anything else that needs to be done please.

    Thanks
