    RAM:
    I have too many unneeded programs loading at start up that are draining my available RAM.
    Yes, that is an issue we need to correct, but you have other issues that I believe need to be addressed first.

    http://www.processlibrary.com/directory/files/svchost/ <<< read this:
    Acting as a host, the file svchost.exe creates multiple instances of itself.
    Defrag: If the program you downloaded worked, fine. I would like to know what error message you get when you try to run the Windows XP defrag, that might tell us why it is not working?

    Combofix: delete the program (right click) and download it again, this time before you save it to the Desktop, checkge the name like this:

    You must rename it before saving it, save it to your Desktop.




    I will comment briefly on any number in the last post that needs a comment.

    2. Can be many reason and difficult to troubleshoot without error messages. Out of date drivers often cause this and you had three out of date, are they updated now?

    3. Spybot S&D is the least of your problems. Please do not try to use it. Once all other issues are resolved, then you can uninstall it and reinstall it, that will likely fix issues with the program. If not, you can discuss that with Spybot S&D experts here:
    http://forums.spybot.info/forumdisplay.php?f=4

    4. post error messages word for word.

    5. What browser are you using when this happens? Did you try another browser? There is likely malware still onboard, that is why I am trying to get combofix run. The situation is that the computer was in poor shape and there was much to do.

    6. Post error/message you get when you try to run it. Have you run chkdsk on this computer recently?

    Besides running combofix, please also update the diagnostic at PCPitStop and post the link.

    Thanks

    Thanks a nasty rootkit infection combofix removed, you need to keep this computer offline unless you are troubleshooting the problems until we are sure you are clean. This junk can download more.

    TeaTimer is running, please follow these directions to diable it and leave it disabled until we finish.
    We need first to disable TeaTimer that it doesn't interfere with fixes. You can re-enable it when you're clean again:
    * Run Spybot-S&D in Advanced Mode.
    * If it is not already set to do this Go to the Mode menu select "Advanced Mode"
    * On the left hand side, Click on Tools
    * Then click on the Resident Icon in the List
    * Uncheck "Resident TeaTimer" and OK any prompts.
    * Restart your computer.

    Post the link to the fresh diagnostic at PCPitStop next please.

    Thanks

    here you go: http://www.pcpitstop.com/betapit/sec.asp?conid=22439574


    I've tried looking up up dates for Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS (WDM) but I can't find one that doesn't require me to download an update scanner that scans for free but requires payment to use.

    Also note: I ran the malware program and found no trace of the file we were trying to get rid of. My windows defrag is working, spybot is working, and it apears I'm no longer being redirected during google and yahoo searches (though this is still too early to tell if it's working for sure). I do notice that my comp seems to be running a little slower since the combofix scan, although I'm guessing that's normal.

    Anywho, I'll be sure to stay off line unless checking this sight or running updates or scans. Thanks for everything so far.

    This information will help with the first item:
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/u...s/mcgill1.mspx

    I will allow you to resolve the other issue, you made good progress.

    Have a look at this information, you do have programs I doubt you need running all of the time. Remember, if you turn off a program in MSConfig (System Configuration Utility) It can always be start in All Programs if needed. Make sure not to turn of security programs.

    Let's proceed like this and see what happens.

    Remove combofix from the computer like this:

    Click START then RUN
    Now type or copy Combofix /u in the runbox and click OK.
    Note the space between the X and the U, it needs to be there.



    Clean the System Restore files like this:

    Turn off System Restore.
    On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
    Click Properties.
    Click the System Restore tab.
    Check Turn off System Restore.
    Click Apply, and then click OK.

    Reboot

    Turn ON System Restore,
    On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
    Click Properties.
    Click the System Restore tab.
    UN-Check *Turn off System Restore*.
    Click Apply, and then click OK.

    (optional if it was just clean)
    Update MBAM and scan to be sure we missed none of the junk, there is no need to post a clean scan result.
    (MBAM is yours to keep if you wish, keep it updated and run it once a month or so)

    Update AVG8 and scan the system, to be sure it is running right and scanning clean.
    Some good AVG information:
    FAQ: http://www.avg.com/faq
    AVG Free Forum: http://freeforum.avg.com/

    If all is well at this point, let me know and I will close the topic.

    Some good information for you:

    Welp, ADV and Malware say my system's clean. Seems like all I've gatta do now is figure out how to turn off those programs that are eatin' up my eccess RAM. It's probably more a systems problem than a malware, but last night when I updated my drivers, and when I reset for some reason my computer was set to color quality was 4bit and I couldn't increase it. So I did a systems restore I had made before updating the drivers and it reset it back to the way it was suposed to be. However, I now notice I once again have seven instances of svhost.exe running again instead of three and pc pitstop is showing I'm back up to 83% of my RAM being used (it also shows I need to update two of my drivers but when I try to they say there already updated).

    But anyway like I said that seems to be more of a systems problem that I can try to work out on my own or find someone who knows more about systems than I do. Thank you pskelley, your a real life saver on this one. I don't have any spare cash right now but when I do I'll be sure to make a donation, after all I want you guys to be around the next time I download a virus now don't I .
