I NEVER open or launch ANYTHING I've received or downloaded without doing a McAfee virus scan on it first, and I'm very diligent about updating my virus/malware definitions, using automatic updates for McAfee VirusScan8 and MS Antispyware beta, and manually doing my updates for AdAwareSE, Spybot14, and SpywareBlaster virtually every time I open a browser, as well as running Stinger every couple days or so, but I have a major problem with a recurring “Generic Downloader.v” javainstaller applet Trojan that gets detected EVERY time I run AdAware, and have spent HOURS and HOURS trying to debug my system and hopefully _prevent_ its reoccurrence, with no luck so far. Am pretty frustrated.

Not only for the lack of success with that _known_ problem, but am pretty sure there is at least one or more _other_ things going on as well, judging by the random sluggishness, freeze-up, and glitches I’m experiencing also. Have recently set up a limited browsing account for myself to hopefully forestall some of the problems with browsing, as well as disabling Java, but still, have noticed that invariably there seems to be one more process running than is shown in my taskbar when I return to the computer after a few minutes and its in “sleep mode”. This makes me think that there is _at least_ one other problem as well, since I can’t identify anything in my registry settings and process viewers that seems to indicate what it would be.

I’ve run all the above scans in safe mode numerous times and it has never stopped it yet; pretty frustrated that McAfee says that “updated engine and DAT files will detect it and remove it” – how about BLOCKING the bleeping thing?!? Got so frustrated that I just downloaded a trial version of F-Secure Anti-Virus 2006 to run it (which necessitated going offline and the removal of both AdAware and McAfee to do so), and after running a full scan (that took 3&1/2 hours!), it *#$*^#! refused to let me view the report. GRRRRRRR!

So, of course, I just ran it again, so I could see what 2 viruses it said it detected the first time and to see which ONE (why only one??) of the 2 it renamed (per my setting changes to hopefully at least deactivate it – if I couldn’t remove it) and Guess What?!?!?! Couldn’t view the report again this time either!! Said it detected only 1 virus this time, but it wasn’t re-named. Clicked on the (active) ScanWizard “Show Report” button>>nothing. Click on the CommandCenter “ViewReport” button>>”No new report”. ??????? GRRRRRRR!!!! Not too impressed with F-Secure at this point. The WHOLE POINT was to see what they were, and how does it get me anywhere if they’re now re-named (one of them, anyways) but still don’t know what/where they are?!? Maddening. Truly maddening after 7+ hours invested. F-Secure just sucks in my book at this point, as I now have to re-install both AdAware and McAfee again, to boot. Have downloaded a Sophos trial am willing to give a go with if anyone has a good word about it.

Also, I have a new DSL connection (FINALLY got wired for it way out here in the boonies! BellSouth, 1.5mbps, Westell/Wirespeed modem), and just recently uninstalled Firefox to see if that cured the problem – NOPE. Using IE6 now, with all MS security updates, and though I have XP’s(SP2) firewall turned on with cookies blocked, privacy settings on MedHi, and scripting notification on, am not sure if there’s something else in the mix that I’m missing, as I’m now getting notifications from this morning’s installation of F-Secure that there are possible browser hijack attempts when I go back online or sometimes open a new link (??that may have been happening all along, but just without notification of them previously??).

I also have one more anomaly that I can’t explain; I have a (one and one only) TOTALLY blank Command Line entry in my “msconfig” Startup report that is attributed to “HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run”. I don’t know what this is or why it alone is not described as all the others are. Have deactivated other applications here that I know what they are and have had no problems (although would like to know how to remove some of them still present _entirely_ from the Startup Programs/menu) but definitely will not mess with this registry without knowing what I’m doing first.

Have been advised by a friend to get my own router (a LinkSys, probably) to (his words) 100% prevent such problems, but first, would really like to get my system cleaned and have my settings changed/restored to eliminate/prevent as many of these problems from re-occurring in case I don’t get the router.

Can anyone help with my hijackthis log below and/or have any suggestions otherwise? Much appreciated - Thanks!!
