Hello all, I hate to post someone else's problem, but my friend has an Active X problem on his homepage. Macromedia Flash Player 7 tries to install plugin, and slows everything down. He's ran Adware and spy subtract to no avail. He's posted a HJT log in Tom Coyotes forum with no replies in 3 days. I'm gonna do him a favor, cause this is by far the best place for answers. When it's all clean, it will be Firefox time for him. Thanks for any and all responses!............

Need help with this problem. I can't seem to get this off my computer. My computer is running slow with this Active X program I seem to have had "leech" onto my computer. Your help would be greatly appreciated in removing this from my computer. I have tried Ad-Aware and Spy Subtract but nothing seems to work! Thank You. Here is my spyware log:

C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
C:\DOCUME~1\Owner\LOCALS~1\Temp\Temporary Directory 2 for hijackthis[1].zip\HijackThis.exe

Those two lines indicate that A) Internet Explorer was running when your friend did the HijackThis scan, and B) he/she has HijackThis running from within a Temp folder. For HJT to work correctly, it must be run from its own folder outside of any Temp folder. Create a folder such as C:\HijackThis or C:\Downloads\HijackThis, move HijackThis into that folder and run it from there. Also make sure that absolutely no instances of Internet Explorer (iexplore.exe) are running when HJT runs.

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [SpyKiller] C:\Program Files\SpyKiller\spykiller.exe /startup

SpyKiller is a bogus program; it should be removed. Use Ad Aware and SpyBot Search & Destroy instead; download links for both utilities are in my sig below.

3) Your friend is using music/file sharing programs, which are major sources of spyware/adware. The risk of further infections will be greater if your friend decides to keep doing the P2P filesharing thing.

Have your friend:

- Take care of the issues above.

- Download Ad Aware and SpyBot, use their "check for updates" features to make sure the latest spyware definition/reference files are installed, run both programs consecutively (the order doesn't matter), and have them fix everything they find.

- Reboot the computer.

- Go to the following two sites and run their free online virus/spyware scans:

http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/com/activescan_principal.htm
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

- Run HijackThis again and give a new log.
