Hijackthis Report After Removing zlob.downloader

After removing zlob.downloader with SmitFraudFix, I ran a HijackThis report on my Win XP system. Next the Hihackthis report was analysed at www.hijackthis.de. I could use some help undestanding how to remove the problems outlined in the analysis.

I can't see the analyzed log.
You  need to click "Analyse", and then click "Save".
To remove any entries in Hijackthis, you need to put a check next those entries and click "Fx Checked" button.
But it's better if we see what those entries are first before you fix them. The analyzer gives false positives. We can also determine whether those entries that needs fixing needs to have corresponding files deleted as well.

I thought this link would give you access to the "saved" information. Hopefully it works tis time. If not, I'll need more detailed instructions.


I'm concerned that BHO entries, "spywareblock" needs to be removed. Perhaps other lines. Your help will be very much appreciated.


Here's the actual log data.

Do you have the smitfraudfix txt? sometimes thre are entries that it can't remove and it states in the log.

Looking at your hijackthis log, only that BHO SpywareBlock entry is the bad one but is harmless now that it says "no file" it's just the registry entry left and fixing it with hijackthis takes care of the registry entry.

It is safe to fix most entries in Hijackthis log. Only those 017 to 023 are crucial entries and shouldn't be fix if you don't know what you're doing. Hijackthis also keeps a backup so anytime you fix an entry and change your mind you can restore it from the backup.

The 04 entries are those programs that runs at bootup, you can disable most of them. In my startup I only have my security programs running like my Firewall, my Antivirus, Spybot's Tea Timer.

You can fix these entries by putting a check next to them and clicking "Fix Checked" button:
