Right on the head! He plays some of those online combat games with folks around the world...and his whole reason for having the computer besides that is his music. He composes and plays (piano,...

Son is hardly a kid anymore...he's 27. LONG story about why he's back home with us...involves a very bad auto accident 3 years ago, when we almost lost him...and a lot of...

I downloaded winpatrol...have not run it yet.
Actually, my problems always seem to happen when my son is here (now that he is back permanently -- at least for a while -- I'm dreading the things...

definitely! He has other problems now. His power supply shorted (inside the case) and his system literally caught fire and burned the motherboard. Also destroyed the processor and video card while...

So, would you shut down all of McAfee, or just the antispyware (and keep the virus scan). Or would you get rid of SpySweeper?
I've just been able to log on to the internet again after several...

OK...I updated HJT and the log file now looks like this (and I still don't know what I should be looking for, so please help):

Yes, I have McAfee, SpySweeper, SpyBot, and Adaware. McAfee is the default, and the others (except SpySweeper) only run when I access them. I also have CWShredder. I added all of them after a...

You're saying I should get rid of
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AlcxMonitor] ALCXMNTR.EXE
What is it, anyway?
also, any idea what these are?
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AGRSMMSG] AGRSMMSG.exe

Computer has been acting funny since Sunday. AOL shuts down for no reason, and my McAfee security center doesn't seem to want to stay on (I've run Adaware, Spybot and Spysweeper).
This forum has...

He is using Windows XP (Home) -- I use XP Pro. For some reason, he could not use System Restore. It would not let him go farther back than the time of the problem. I imagine it had something to do...

My son, who has been up working for nearly 30 hours straight, thought his system was infected with trojan.riler.E -- whatever that is -- and decided to try to edit his reg file to get rid of it,...

This is the info I was able to google about those two apps:
agrsmmsg.exe is the SoftModem Messaging Applet for your AMR modem
alcxmntr.exe - Process Information

MusicMatch Jukebox came with the CPU. Personally, I don't like it and use the MS Media Player -- although this system does seem to want to default often to MMJ. I may just uninstall...

After much effort last night, this is what the HJT logfile looks like now:

I appreciate your support, but this is the first time -- with your comment -- that I knew that a driver under the spools directory would be either a printer or fax/modem, normally and,...

So, the end of the rainbow here still isn't definitive about what should go? Should
go, or not? I have no idea what it is. Plus, I...

I guess I am missing the 1.exe you are talking about. Is there anything else in particular that you notice (because I will undoubtedly miss it). What lines cause you concern? I did just...

I had run Shredder 2.0 and it did absolutely nothing. I just downloaded 2.12 and will give that a try in a moment -- but as you can see from my last post, the HJT filelog looks reasonable...

I downloaded the CWShredder 2.12 but have not used it yet. Interestingly, I restored the system to where it was last week, and when I ran HJT this is the new logfile I get:

I have not yet tried your suggestion...however, since this looked surprisingly similar to the problem I was having in June, I tried to do some of the same things I did then (which is probably...

My son is back in town, and using my computer, and tonight my Ad-Aware found 4 critical registry files...but locked up when I got to the point of trying to delete them. Spybot found DSO Exploit...

Thanks, meeeeeee (and everyone else). As usual, you guys are great.
I did not realize there was a Windows firewall...guess it's part of the XP package? I do like the McAfee firewall, and it's part...

Sorry...guess I only thought I had the latest version earlier!

I downloaded the hjt file, but it is the same version number (188.8.131.52) that I had before. Am I missing something?
As to symptoms, I have a lot of the same issues, like DSO that keep...

thanks for the tip, but "here" doesn't seem to go anywhere, yet
