    Hi

    messenger

    You get the popups, because
    - your messenger services (windows) is running and listening
    - you have no firewall blocking some specific incoming requests. We
    had an example of this a few days ago[0]. Actually, one of your
    pop ups has been brought up there as an example

    Solution:
    1. Start->Run: services.msc
    2. messenger->properties->Startup type: disabled.


    hijackthis

    My goal is to provide you information, such that you also can check
    these logs yourself. First: there is an excellent page, which analysies
    the log-files automatically[1]. Learn about the tools itself[2].

    Running processes

    There are sites, which explain running processes[3-5]. I did not know
    pctspk.exe, so I checked for it- if you have a PCTEL (HSP) Modem,
    this is fine (also check the registry in the links I have provided).

    The directory %WINDIR%=c:\winnt (in your case) is the correct place
    to find explorer.exe for Windows XP SP1.

    O's

    Usually, you know best what you have installed. The automated analyser
    had problems with
    Code:
    O16 - DPF: {74D05D43-3236-11D4-BDCD-00C04F9A3B61} (HouseCall Control) - http://a840.g.akamai.net/7/840/537/...all/xscan53.cab
    but, assuming you have done Trendmicros Housecall, this is all fine?

    Finally, the explicit nameservers O17. Are these the numbers provided
    by your ISP (check the documentation or their homepage). If so, this
    is fine as well.

    From this quick glance, you system is clean. Learn to keep clean also here[6-7].

    Cheers

    It's meant to be used for example by system administrators to send messages to their users to warn them a system will be shut down. Or for printer servers to give a message to the user the printer is out of paper.. Lot's of legitimate reasons but most (if not all) home users don't need it.

    Scaring classmates with a spoofed message from the teacher telling them to stop ****ing around was fun while it lasted too.
    Since the beginning of time, Man has searched for the answers to the big questions: \'How did we get here?\' \'Is there life after death?\' \'Are we alone?\' But today, in this very theatre, you will be asked to answer the biggest question of them all...WHO LIVES IN A PINEAPPLE UNDER THE SEA?

    You were SPAMMED with advertisements for rubbish, alleged security software. If you had visited the site they would have offered to "scan" your machine and then charge you 50 bucks to "clean" it of things it didn't even have.



    You left MS Messenger enabled (a known vulnerability) and hence you got the spam. It was not "exploited" as such, you just had it turned on. Not really different from your telephone or your mailbox...........apart from that they have better legal protection?

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    What is meant by the explicit nameservers:

    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{A47AFE4E-D56D-412C-9A22-36582B29A3AA}: NameServer = 202.188.0.132 202.188.0.133

    You most likely connect to your ISP using DHCP and the nameservers are provided by the DHCP server. You can check on the ISP's homepage and if these are the authorized nameservers for the ISP then everything is ok.
