1. Download, install, and run about:Buster and HSRemove.


2. Reboot into safe mode (you get to the safe mode boot option by hitting the F8 key as your computer is starting up)

- Open Windows Explorer, and in the Folder Options->View settings under the Tools menu, select "show hidden files and folders", and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and "Hide extentions for known file types".

- Delete the entire contents of all Temp, Temporary, and Temporary Internat Files folders.

- Open a DOS window, type the following command at the prompt, and then hit Enter:

regsvr32 /u C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\ECEDD.DLL

- Locate and delete the C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\ECEDD.DLL file.

- Run HijackThis and have it fix:

- Empty your Recycle Bin and reboot normally.


3. Run HJT again and post a new log.

Good work; that's a clean log. :)

(although I'd suggest staying away from things like PartyPoker; freebie gaming programs/sites like that are very often sources of spyware/adware.)

Now that your system is clean, here are a few things you can/should do to minimize your chances of future virus/malware infections:


1. Use Windows Automatic Update function to keep your system as up-to-date as possible with the most current Microsoft security and bug fixes.

2. Stop using Internet Explorer as your web browser. Because IE is so closely tied into the Windows operating system itself and contains so many security flaws, switching to another browser such as Netscape, Firefox, or Opera will greatly reduce the avenues through which spyware/adware/hijackers/etc. can infect your computer.

3. Install preventative utilities such as SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard (links are in my sig below), especially if you absolutely have to continue using Internet Exploder. These utilities protect areas of your system known to be vulnerable to malicious attacks.

4. Tighten up some of Internet Explorer's existing, default settings to make it more secure. Some info on that can be found here: http://tomcoyote.org/ieoe.php

5. Obviously-install a good anti-virus program and enable its "auto-protect" and email-scanning features.

6. Install a stand-alone firewall program such as Zone Alarm or Kerio Personal Firewall, or purchase the "Internet Security" packages offered by Symantec and McAfee.

7. None of your utilities are of much good if you don't check for updates frequently; updates for anti-spyware/anti-virus programs can be released as often as ever two or three days.
