Could someone assist me please? I am so very frustrated. So forgive me if I am long winded or ignorant, as I don't know much about computers and can't afford a new one. Each time I try to do an onkine scan, something prevents the virus signatures or database from downloading. I have tried Trend Micro at least 5 times, which tells me I need to have java installed or updated, or else it is disabled, but which I do have and it is running in the task bar, then it will let me load probably 35 % before I get a failed message. Kaspersky 3, Bit Defender twice,and some others as well. Always get a message, failed to download. I got as high as 92% downloaded with Bit Defender. And with Kaspersky and Trend Micro i will sometimes get a message , you need to be online to run the scanner - even when I am on line. McAfee gives me an error message my web browser is not supported, must be IE 5 or higher. I have IE6 installed! Ad-aware finds only minor annoyances. Spybot always tells me, "There were problems in the include file C:Program Files\Spybot-Search_Destroy\Includes\Hijackers.sbi. See include errors log for details, or same message but \Malware.sbi, or same message but\MalwareC.sbi., and same message with\Trojans.sbi, and \TrojansC.sbi.. I have also run Malwarebytes', and have downloaded all the updates from Microsoft, but sometimes have difficulty getting them to download.

My old faithful standby Gateway only has 384 MB ram, 447 MHZ processor and a 9.GB drive, yet it runs like a top. I can download something and have 3 or 4 other open windows as well. But I keep running out of room on the drive, despite the fact that I have deleted just about everything, and I defrag, disk cleanup, etc.
So I bought this computer (used) which has 33GB drive, AMD Athlon XP 2400+, 2GHz 992 ram. Seems to me it should be much faster than my old one. It runs much slower than my old computer; slower than a turtle. If I try to download something, I can only open one window at times, and I get lots of dns errors or Internet Explorer could not open the search page, or down in the taskbar I get something that says msn auto search and it goes to www,(whatever web page I was looking for) for example.www.google.com, but then it goes to www.www.google.com, www.www.google.net, www.www.google.edu. I don't understand. And how, please, do I set a search page to what I want? Another question, please. Why do I keep getting that annoying little triangle at times in my taskbar, and a message saying this web page may not display correctly? I have uninstalled, and reinstalled Java. Norton was installled originally, but outdated and expired, so I tried Avira, and am now using a 30-day trial of Eset.

The previous owner has games on here, will deleting those speed this up? Trouble is, I don't know in the add/remove programs which are games and which are needed programs. Could you help me out with that as well? I was told by someone to delete viewpoint, but I don't see that in add/remove, but there is a viewpoint folder in my program files. Also to delete Windows messenger. I still see a Messenger folder in my programs folder, but no way to uninstall it. I was told to uninstall WildTangent, which I did, but Spybot found entries even after I did. Someone told me to use HijackThis. So I will post that below. Also, What is the difference between Windows Media Player, MusicMatch jukebox, RealOne Player, QuickTime Player; do I really need all those? And I have a Brother printer, scanner, fax. Can I safely delete HP Deskjet Printer preloaded drivers, or is that something I cannot delete?
I have System Mechanic installed. Generally it shows CPU usage at like 2 or 3 percent, with an average free ram of 630. Yet it will spike up to 100% CPU at times and stay there and I don't know why. Was told to look in task manager. Right; like I have any clue as to what any of that means in there! And is it possible for a virus or whatever to keep disconnecting you from the internet? I have dialup, and it seems I frequently get disconnected only when I'm trying to run online virus scans, or I get the, "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close" message. I realize this is a bazillion questions, so I thank you all for your patience, and in advance thank you for any and all help, insight you can provide. I truly appreciate it. Oh, PS. I've read something that you can buy something so that even though you're on dial up - some kind of modem or splitter? - you can still receive calls and not tie up the phone line? Any of you experts know of such a thing? It's not a program like callwave, but some kind of hardware.

Programs listed in add/remove programs are: Adobe Acrobat 5.0; Adobe Flash Player 10 Active X; Brother MFL Pro Suite; CA Yahoo Anti-Spy (remove only); easy Internet sign up 25.68 mb (can I delete this?) Eset Nod 32 Antivirus; Hijack this; HP Deskjet Printer preloaded drivers 73.28 mb (can I safely delet this since I have a Brother?); HpSdpAppCoreApp; Instant Support; Intel Extreme Graphics Driver; Intel Mover Data Transfer Demo; Java 6 Update 12; KBD; Malwarebytes Anti-Malware;McAfee Site Advisir; Microsoft Net Framework v1.03705; Microsoft Net Framework 1.0 Hotfix; Microsoft Net Framework 1.1; Microsoft Net Framework 1.1 Hotfix; Microsoft Learning - Software updates- Security Update for Step by Step Interactive Training, and a second Security Update for Step by Step Interactive Training; Microsoft Works 7.0; MSXML 4.0 SP2; MUSICMATCH Jukebox; NVIDIA Windows 2000/XP Display Drivers; PaperPort; ParetoLogic Anti-Spyware; PC Pitstop Optimize2 2.0; PC-Doctor for Windows; PS2; Python 2.2 combined Win32 extensions; Python 2.2.1; Quicken 2003 New User Edition; RealOne Player; RecordNow; S3 Display; S3Gamma2; S3Info2; S3Overlay; Simple Installer- Multilanguage Version; Sonic Update Manager; Trojan Remover 6.65; UnZip Me; Windows Defender; Windows Installer 3.1; Then numerous XP Software and Security Updates; Security Update for Windows Media Player 9.0; Windows XP Service Pack 2; WinPatrol2008; Yahoo!

Which can I safely remove, please?
Also, Win Patrol is contstanly giving me a message: Scotty the watchdog is on patrol and has detected a change to one of your file type associations. The program currently associated with this file type is Registry Editor Microsoft Corporation regedit.exe %1, a change was made to use the following program for this file type, Notepad Microsoft Corporation NOTEPAD.EXE %1. Is this change okay? Should I click yes or no? Then, if I click on no, this box pops up with same message, only different files. .SCR - Program currently associated with file type is - there's an empty box and it just says Name, underneath it says Company name %1 /S, a change was made to use following program for this file Notepad, Microsoft Corporation NOTEPAD.EXE %1. Is this change okay? So I click on no until I can find out what that empty box is with no name.

Ok, just be calm. We are going to try to get this cleaned up.
It would be easier for people here to read if you would run the Uninstall Manager in HiJackThis. It will produce a list and you will need to copy/paste that list, exactly as it shows into this thread.

To access the Uninstall Manager you would do the following:

1. Start HijackThis
2. Click on the Config button
3. Click on the Misc Tools button
4. Click on the Open Uninstall Manager button.
click on the Save list... button and specify where you would like to save this file, save it to the desktop. When you press Save button a notepad will open with the contents of that file. Simply copy and paste the contents of that notepad into a reply
After I go through this list I will tell you what you can UNINSTALL. You never just Delete Programs. If you do that files will be left behind.
If you don't use any of the games YES you can safely UNINSTALL them. If you want to wait so I can go through the list that is fine.
Post the list and I will go through it ASAP and post back with what you can safely uninstall.
If you would carefully make a list of questions, and list them in list style, what I mean is like this:

And how, please, do I set a search page to what I want?
The previous owner has games on here, will deleting those speed this up?
Could you help me out with that as well?

If you line them up like I have above it is much easier to read and I won't miss any.

I honestly don't see much in that Uninstall list that requires removal. I see no games in there at all. Are you certain there are games on there?
You can uninstall Win Patrol if it is annoying to you, that is what I did finally. But it is an ok program
You can uninstall these;
This one because you said you have a Brothers printer so these wouldn't be needed>HP Deskjet printer preloaded drivers
CA Yahoo! Anti-Spy (remove only)
ParetoLogic Anti-Spyware
Though it doesn't show in the Uninstall list this IS showing in the HJT log start up;
C:\Program Files\iolo\System Mechanic Professional 6\
Now you mentioned both AdAware and Spybot...neither of these show on that Uninstall list, are you certain they are installed on the computer? Neither of them show in the HJT log.

Hello again, and thank you for your reply. Many of the games disappeared when I uninstalled WildTangent. Interesting, Spybot and Lavasoft are not in add/remove as you said. They are in C Program files however. And both load up when I click on the desktop icons. However, I have the error messages as I stated above when I run Spybot. It's hard to reply when I can't see what you've written above me. What are all those R1 things, please? Do I need them?
P.S. I managed to run (finally) Windows Live one care. If this helps you help me, here is what it said. Windows Live found TrojanDownloader:BAT/Ftper.gen 1 item
TrojanDropper:Win32/nuwar.B 3 items
2 issues not able to be cleaned - submit for analysis -
TrojanDownloader:BAT/Ftper.gen
Likely infected C:\windows\system32\.pif
Does that mean they will analyze whatever this is and get back to me? I wonder why eset did not find that. Again, thank you.

The R1 listings you refer to in the HJT log are NOT programs, they are essentially a list of the Internet Explorer Start Page...the home page.
They can all be removed if you wish but you will lose the home page you have chosen. They aren't taking up room but they can be fixed later. They are not important and are NOT signs of infection or any cause of a slow down of the computer.
I don't know what Windows Live Care will do, I have never used it so I cannot advise on that.
The items it says it found are trojans, they are NOT viruses so that is probably why they were not found by ESET. Different programs find different things, not unusual at all. This is why it is always recommended when you suspect infection that several programs be run.
Generally here we recommend that you begin with one program and that is Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBA-M)
Follow these instructions exactly:

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 desktop is always a good choice. The log can also be found by going to Start > All Programs > Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware > Logs > log-date.txt.
REBOOT the computer.

Then run HiJackThis again, save the log and post it here along with the MBA-M log.

I already have that program installed, and it doesn't find anything. It's in my add/remove programs list above. Do you want me to reinstall it?

0

Have you updated it? It has updates DAILY sometimes several times a day. I want you to update it and then run a Full Scan with it.

Okay, will do. Again, I sincerely thank you for yor time, consideration and patience! By the way, those R1 things, they're not from me. The only home page I selected was my webmail page, www.webmail.acmenet.net, which is why I wonder what the rest of them are. Will follow your instructions. Again, thank you!

Your Home Page does show in the log, it is the R0 listing.
R1 is for Internet Explorers Search functions and other characteristics. Many were probably on the computer when you got it. They take up NO room on the computer. They essentially are just listings. As I said, we can remove those later. They are not any problem on the computer and take up no room. We can do nothing about those until you complete the steps given.
Please run the MBA-M program as directed, let it REMOVE what it finds and save the log. Reboot the computer.
Run HJT again and save the log. Post back here with both logs and we will move forward from there.

Looks to me like the computer is clean.
Now I will try to answer your original questions as best as possible.
I am going to advise that you Uninstall the following programs:
CA Yahoo! Anti-Spy
McAfee Site Advisor
ParetoLogic Anti-Spyware
PC Pitstop Optimize2 2.0
PC-Doctor for Windows
Windows Defender
WinPatrol 2008
Yahoo! Install Manager
Yahoo! Software Update
Yahoo! Toolbar

Those computer security programs listed above, while pretty decent programs are unneeded and probably too much for your computer since it is a used computer.
Keep the MBA-M program and update and do a quick scan with it at least weekly. Keep the antivirus program you have.
Add SpywareBlaster for superb protection. It is FREE, it DOES NOT run in the background and keeps you well protected. Download, Install, Update and Enable All Protection and then CLOSE the PROGRAM. That's it. Just manually check for updates weekly, sometimes it will have some and sometimes not. When it does be sure to Enable All Protection again and close the program.

The basic advice is this you CANNOT just Delete. These programs have to actually be UNINSTALLED using Add/Remove. If you just delete it doesn't remove the program it just deletes it from the list, but the program remains.
As for the online scans, there is no need to do these all the time and what works for some won't work for others, so pick one that works for you and use it OCCASIONALLY as a sort of back up.

Now for the music programs, if you don't use any of them then uninstall them, EXCEPT for Windows Media Player. It should serve your purposes well.
Except for the Windows Defender LEAVE ALL the other Microsoft listings alone. Most are necessary for the running of the computer and should not be removed.

Now AFTER you do all the Uninstalls then run a new Full System Scan with HiJackThis and post that new log and I will give you the things you can do with the unnecessary listings in it. I DON'T need to see another Uninstall list from HJT.
