    Are they spying on me?

    Hello my comp is lately very very slow, and there are automaticly starting a browser and 2 notepaths.

    When i look into the properties of the browser, it says:


    res://C:\WINDOWS\System32\shdoclc.dll/navcancl.htm#http://www.tampabaymart.com/vb/chann...ktopSearch.asp


    What is this and how do i get my comp back to normal.

    Tnx for all support.

    Desktop.ini is a feature of microsoft as fas as I know It enhances the layout of the directory. You should check your registery to. Local_machine/software/microsoft/windows/run runservices etc. for things you don't need to be started. Be carefull tho you don't delete important things, you can't just delete all. Also check current_user/software/microsoft/windows/run.
    Hope that helps...

    What makes me suspicous is this entry:

    [.ShellClassInfo]
    LocalizedResourceName=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell
    32.dll,-21787 <--is this a server listening on a high port number?

    Is this a trojan server? Get The Cleaner to see if it is... here is a link: www.moosoft.com

    tnx for that prog, it found 10 of them.....

    I also got this message


    FILE: C:\hiberfil.sys

    PROBLEM: I could not scan this file. Error Code 5: "Toegang geweigerd."(acces dienied)


    SOLUTION: A common reason for this error is that Windows has locked the file for
    SOLUTION: exclusive access. A swap file is a common example. Also, an antivirus
    SOLUTION: program might be denying access to the file. In that case, you can
    SOLUTION: temporarily disable the anti-virus to clean the trojan.

    Pagefile.sys is your Windows Pagefile (known as swap file in Win9x). Don't worry about that. The hiberfil.sys, I'm not really sure about, but is probably a hibernation file where all of your memory is stored when you computer goes into hibernation mode. You should be fine not being able to scan those two files.

    Edit: Also, because of the Trojans you had, you may want to think about installing a software firewall which will let you filter out-going traffic so that you can ensure that you won't have any Trojan's accessing the 'net without your permission any more.
