Hi

I'm running Windows XP service pack 3. Recently realised that my Sigmatel Audio mixer had 'disappeared'. After much searching around, I found a website that was offering a Driver Detector program that was spyware free. I installed it, and immediately after could not open Internet Explorer.

I got a message from microsoft that said 'Data Execution Prevention' had been turned on and that I could turn it off via system>advanced>performance>settings but I wasn't really sure what I was to do there.

I ran Spyware Doctor, and it found high risk sypware and removed it. I had to reinstall Internet Explorer 7 and now I still occsasionally get the 'Internet Explorer Encountered a Problem and Must Close' Error box, sometimes then it doesn't kick me out of IE but when it does, I get no further information after sending the error report.

AVG revealed one fairly unobtrusive virus that it removed.

Am experiencing a slightly slower and more sluggish response from the computer as a whole so I wondered if anyone could have a look at my Hijack log file to see if there is anything that can be done?

No your computer isn't clean.

AVG revealed one fairly unobtrusive virus that it removed.

What was the name of this virus and where was it located. One must never assume a virus is unobtrusive. One infection can open the door to many others.

I ran Spyware Doctor, and it found high risk sypware and removed it.

What was the name and location of this high risk spyware?
We really need to know the names of things so we know what we are dealing with.
You need to do the following:
First remove that version of HiJackThis, it is way out of date.
Then download the newest version HiJackThis version 2.0.2 and save it to that HiJackThis folder you have in your program files.
Next turn off that Abexo registry cleaner. There is no reason a registry cleaner should be running on the computer. Also turn off Win Patrol as it can interfere with fixes which need to be done.
Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBA-M) to your Desktop.

* DoubleClick mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install MBA-M.
* Be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When MBA-M finishes, Notepad will open with the log. Please save it where you can find it easily. The log can also be opened by going to Start > All Programs > Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware > Logs > log-date.txt.
Reboot the computer.
Run a new HJT scan and post that log along with the MBA-M log.

NB. I have just updated to Intenet Explorer 8 because was fed up of 7 not opening.

before I think? But the problems with IE have only been over the last two days with no previous problems. I'm now posting this in Google Chrome as IE 8 is now not opening from my desktop shortcut.

The reason I asked was that if it had been AFTER the install of SP3 you could have still rolled back to IE6 but since it was after then that is not possible. You might try running scandisk and seeing if you have some files which can be repaired.

Where is scandisk? I can't find it on a search? other than that though are the hijackthis and malware logs ok? Nothing to attend to?

Thanks very much for your help.

ok. have run scandisk and no problems there. I'm occasionally getting the 'internet explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close' message but when i report it, i don't get a solution back, and it doesn't actually close the application anyway.
