Here are the DDS logs. Once computer is running it seems to do ok. She uses Mozilla Firefox as a web browser. When I double click on it from desktop icon, it seems to take an excess amount of time to open. Other than that, system seems to work ok.

There could still be something lurking on the harddrive.

* Anyone other than the originator of this thread, you would be best advised to not run combofix without guidance from someone trained in its use. It is a very powerful tool that can cause damage to your computer if used wrong.

Run comboFix.exe. Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running the tool:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

* Ensure you have disabled all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix. Also make sure you close all your browsers just before the instructions tell you to start the scanner.

Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply for further review.

Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix''s window while it''s running. That may cause it to stall



Also there are some hints in the event viewer logs show in the DDS scan that point to a problems so I need to get a better look at that.

I need you to go to the administration tools in XP. They are in the Control Panel. Open the Admin tools, then open the event viewer. Over on the left hand side and click on System. Then up at the top click on Action and then click on Save Events As, type in system as the file name,  make sure file type EVT is selected, and then navigate so it will save the file to your desktop, then click save. Over on the left hand side and click on Application. Then up at the top click on Action and then click on Save Events As, type in application as the file name,  make sure file type EVT is selected, and then navigate so it will save the file to your desktop, then click save. Zip them both up into a single zip file, post them back here in your next reply as attachments.

If I am helping you and you don't hear from me for 24Hrs, send me a PM Please!

Save both files to the same location, select them both and then right click on one of them and select send to  then compressed file. If you can't get them zipped together, just zip them individually and attach them that way.

It does look like combofix did find some malware. Try rebooting the computer and see how it does.

Here are the zipped files.  Just rebooted. Best ever! Would have to say pretty normal! I'm going to call it quits for tonight. Will check in the A.M for directions on hopefully wrapping this up! Thanks a bunch for all your help today Hoov.

Do you have a Dell Printer? Also in the morning could you send me a new copy of the event viewer logs? From the time stamps it appears almost everything except the printer has been cleared up.

I called my daughter and found out that she used to have a Dell printer but no longer has it or any other printer. Boot speed this morning was acceptable by the way. Attached are the zipped event files.

Looks like all the problems are cleared up except for 2. In the event viewer logs there is evidence of probably one program that is failing. The bad part is that because of the problem, the event viewer has no idea what is causing it. So we need to do a bit of digging.

Please download RunScanner
  • Save it to a folder you create such as C:\Runscanner (this assumes Windows is installed on your C: drive).
  • Launch Runscanner by double-clicking runscanner.exe within the C:\Runscanner folder.
  • Vista users must also click Continue to open Runscanner when prompted by User Account Control (UAC)
  • Check Beginner Mode
  • Click Scan computer
  • Your will see a "Runscanner scan in progress" window displayed while Runscanner scans your system
  • At the conclusion of the scan, save the run file called runscanner.run to your documents folder or directly to the Runscanner folder. This is the file you will need to upload.
  • A runscanner.log file will automatically open in Notepad. Just close the Notepad window because, it is ONLY the runscanner.run file that we are interested in.
  • Next, zip up the runscanner.run file that you just saved.
  • I want you to upload the zipped runscanner.run file as an attachment in your next reply
  • To do that choose "Additional Options" under "Post Reply"
  • Browse to the zipped RUN file location and then click the "Post" button to attach the file.
  • I will review the run file, and then upload it back to you with items marked for deletion.
  • Please await my directions and the returned RUN file, and do not delete anything in the interim

Before I perform your runscanner directions, I just learned something from my daughter over the telephone. She still does use a Virgin Mobile wireless USB adapter plugged into the back of her laptop to access the internet. When we made that startup folder in Control Panel, I turned off anything to do with Broadcom, Novatel wirless, etc. Before we are done, we need to turn that stuff back on. If you follow me (I hope!), should I do that now and plug that modem back into her laptop or just proceed with runscanner as directed?

Sorry for the confusion on my part.

Either way is fine. Now that I know what she uses, I will ignore anything from Virgin Mobile.

Before I ran the runscanner scan, I turned back on the few items in that Control Panel startup folder that we created regarding that mobile stuff. I think I got everything associated but not sure. I then rebooted and then ran the runscanner operation. Zipped run file attached.

Now, I want you to fix some autostart items by using the RUN file that I have attached with items marked for deletion:
  • Please download and extract the attached Zip file called runscannerCorsair.zip to your Runscanner folder
  • Open Runscanner in Expert Mode by double-clicking runscanner.exe, checking "Expert" and clicking OK.
  • Click the "Open Run File" button
  • Browse to "runscannerCorsair.run" (the run file you just unzipped) located in the Runscaner folder, and click Open
  • The screen will refresh after the run file loads
  • Click the "Item Fixer" button
  • The items selected to be fixed will be displayed and checked for removal
  • Click "Fix Selected items"
  • Confirm that you want to fix these items by clicking OK in the confirmation dialog box.
  • You will receive a "Done fixing items" message when removal is complete.
  • Reboot
  • Launch Runscanner again, save another .RUN File called runscannerCorsair2.run
  • Zip up runscannerCorsair2.run and attach it to your next reply please.
After all of this, reboot the computer and give me the event viewer logs again. Let me know what the computer says is the time you rebooted, and how it rebooted and runs.

Last reboot was between 2144 and 2147. (Old sailors can still remember!) Boot seemed acceptable for speed. Event logs and .run file attached. If possible, with your blessings that is, I would like to give laptop back to daughter tomorrow when I go to visit granddaughter.

Well we did not get rid of the problem, but it looks like it is tied to the fax service. If she does not use the computer to fax with, go into the administrative tools and then to the Fax service and stop it then disable it. That should deal with it. Also the event viewer shows that there is a disk error, so you need to run chkdsk on the harddrive again. Other than that, if all is well then there is no reason not to return it.

If your daughter does get back online, have her come back here and we can help her secure her computer and give her some pointers on how to keep her machine safe online.

As for the Old Sailor still remembering, I don't know about you I am still more comfortable using the 24 hour clock. As for the calendar, I wish everyone would switch over and use the Julian calendar, then I would not have to remember what month and how many days there are in it.  :LOL

Not sure I follow you on how to stop fax service in admin tools. Please point me in right direction. Also ok to uninstall Combofix now and isn't there a certain way to uninstall it? I will run chkdsk again. What is the easiest way to start it?
