I hope I am posting this thread in the right place, it is the only Virus and Spyware thread I can find, if there is another forum I'm sorry, I hope someone can help.

I started having a problem with the speed of my computer a copuple of days ago when AVG alerted me to a Trojen BHO virus, since then I have painstakingly, due to the speed of my computer, down loaded and ran various virus software following advice from several forums and hope the info gathered someone can help me.

I have installed Spyware Blaster, HiJack This, Maleware Bytes, ATF-Cleaner, I have ran microsoft Windows Malisious Software Removal Tool and ESET Online, unfortunatly I was unable to save the info from ESET but the 3 files found were from Orange my internet servce provider.

I was unable to download Deckards System Scanner as this message came up;

Also forgot to mention i have now uninstalled AVG and am currently using Avast as when I was looking for advice there seems to be a problem with AVG and False positives with Trojan BHO virus

Kind Regards Marie


Something else I have just this second realised I have a secondary hard drive F:\ which is no longer accessible and I am not sure at what point over the past couple of days this has happened


An update,

I think the BHO virus warning was due to AVG rather than a serious virus problem,now using Avast,

The missing F:\ drive came back with the twiddle of the wires at the back, doh!

And using Hijack this and google I have managed to suss the computer processes and with sensible consideration removed a couple of CPU zapping but unrequired processes. Though I might add not always recomended.

this has seemed to solve the problem but realistically sooner or later I will need to upgrade my computer as the computer I have cannot be upgraded further and is probably the main problem.

Kind Regards Marie


Hello, Marie, apologies to you for your posts being ignored. Did you use Hijackthis to fix these log entries:

And did you delete the files:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\Renovate.exe ?

You should get a proper firewall, ie Comodo, Kerio or ZoneAlarm
This is handy: Spywareblaster
Cheers. Feel free to ask for more help.. :)


Thank you,
I know how busy everyone is and I just thought that there was not much wrong when I didn't get a reply, I just thought I was over reacting, hence doing more reaserch on the net

I have removed the O2 - BHO: WormRadar.com IESiteBlocker.NavFilter - {3CA2F312-6F6E-4B53-A66E-4E65E497C8C0} - C:\Program Files\AVG\AVG8\avgssie.dll (file missing) but some of the others listed I was not too sure about but i will remove them today.

Thank you for the tip about the fire wall, and I do have spyblaster. I don't feel qualified to input anything to the site but I am truly grateful for the advice I read or receive

Kind Regards Marie


Most of those I listed were merely orphaned entries [files called but not there anymore...], it was only the two O4 entries that I thought were of some concern, plus their related files.
Comodo is a complex but thorough firewall and system defense, some will not like it because of that...
