Hi,
I have had the red X next to my C drive in My computer for some time. Is has XP sp 3, Also, some programs do not respond - I click on them and nothing happens, or they start to open and then disappear. Sometimes it gets stuck in a mode where nothing responds. It is in that mode now so after running all those scans. I installed webroot antivirus/antispyware but it did not find anything. Online forums pointed me to the VundoFix so I ran that and it did find a problem and fix it. I went through the instructions for what to do before posting and that also found some problems:

1) Windows malicious software tool did not find anything
2) I ran the ATF cleaner
3) Malwarebytes found several problems - see attached logile
4) EEset found one problem - see atteched logfile
5) uninstall list from Hijack - This is also attached
Thanks In advance for your assistance.

Generally the red X indicates a disconnected network drive, but thats wierd as your C drive should be a fixed, local, physical drive.

Hello,

Well as jbennet said, it shouldn't be doing this on the C drive.

Download hijackthis and post the log.

Thanks,

Cohen :)

yeah, just to check - you are not anything strange like running off a usb drive/ramdisk/thin client etc?

Are you on home or pro?

OH, just another thing.

In the future, when you post logs, post them in a post / reply.

Thanks

Cohen :)

As requested, I am attaching the hijackthis.log
