Hello everyone! Well, I took your advice, and went ahead and reinstalled and reformated. Now I seem to be getting a lot of hits on my firewall for some reason.

I'm wondering if there is a virus on here that's nasty and keeps getting past my AV Scans, or some horrible spyware or something? So, I did a Hijack This! log for you masters to take a look at please! :)

I have BlackIce firewall, Norton AntiVirus, Microsoft Anti-Spyware, Spybot, and Adaware. These are all updated, and I just ran them today. And voila! Here is my log! :)

1. If the hits are being reported as coming from the outside world, that's normal; there are a lot of malicious programs and people out there trying random IPs and network ports to see if they can find a way into your system.
Do your firewall logs give you any specific details? If so, you might want to post some of them so that we can get a better idea of what the hits are all about.


2. There are a couple of loose ends in your HJT log; have it fix these entries:

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {01E69986-A054-4C52-ABE8-EF63DF1C5211} - (no file)

Thanks for the cleanup advice! Here are a lot of the hits that have happened today...

Unfortunately, I really don't know how to read the logs :(. I get options when I right click these though: Block forever, block for an hour, allow forever, allow for an hour, things like that.

Those log entries are indicating probes/connection attempts from the outside world; they aren't indicative of activity by malicious programs on your computer. If your firewall software is sucessfully blocking these queries, you should be OK.

In addition to a firewall, you can tighten up your security even more by making configuration changes to Windows' services (system-level programs which provide certain functions). Windows, by default, runs more than a few unnecessary and potentially vulnerable services, so it's a good idea from a security standpoint to limit some of these services or disable them entirely. This isn't something that you should do if you're not familiar with services though, as modifying the wrong services can cause all sorts of trouble.

A list of suggested service settings which will secure your computer more thoroughly can be found here:

Okay, so you're saying since the attacks/probes are showing up in my firewall list, then that means they *are* being blocked?

Sorry, I'm new to the whole firewall thing :(. This was given to me by a friend with no instructions :(.

1. Your log is clean now. :)

2. Somewhere in the BlackIce firewall program you should be able to find a graphical view of the connection attempts which will tell you if the attempts were successfully blocked or not (each event should have a small alert icon next to it). The text log reports some info on the connection attempts, but not the actions taken.
