ComboFix and Hijack this log files, would any expert step forward and review them please. They are from my personal computer. Its an IBM A31p Laptop running Xp Pro and AVAST antivirus. No know issues at this time except for it may be a bit weighted down with programs in the start menu for which I could also use some support.  Thanks in Advance

Thanks for your interest in my logfiles for Hijack this. The www.hijackthis.de analysis tool is very interesting as well.

The first entry the AEIWLSTA.exe is foreign to me.

The Click Yes was was added by me as a tool to circumvent the security pop up in Outlook that has always asked me to verify its ok for my electronic organizer to access the names and addresses in my contacts folder of Microsoft Outlook.  The outlook security gets in the way of an unattended synchronization of my organizer so click yes was purchased to get by the problem.

WinfernoUpdate is for the Secure IE browser I purchased from McAfee its ok.  

I don't know what Pixelinstall is or Run once Reboo is.

The trusted zone ptaweb is where I log in my work hours for my job. Its ok.
The ibm stuff is a good question. It could be for the software / driver updating software that IBM has provided for the laptop. or it could be a rouge program posing as IBM stuff The link when clicked on trys to download a program called acpIR.cab..... I have heard of acp with respect to power management and IR has been used to describe infra red. The laptop indeed has an IR sensor.

Thanks Tolomir for your assistance any additional comments from all are welcome...

Of cause this is a full detailed analysis, in general you see an icon in the taskbar with these possible colors:

green: everything ok
amber: possible unwanted / unclassified programs running
red: alert malware!

No offense Jonvee, but msconfig is not a proper weapon against malware.

Apart from that it will bug you after each reload if you still want to exclude unticked programs from autostarting.

A better solution for handling autostarts would be to use the microsoft tool: autoruns.

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/utilities/Autoruns.mspx

This utility, which has the most comprehensive knowledge of auto-starting locations of any startup monitor, shows you what programs are configured to run during system bootup or login, and shows you the entries in the order Windows processes them. These programs include ones in your startup folder, Run, RunOnce, and other Registry keys. You can configure Autoruns to show other locations, including Explorer shell extensions, toolbars, browser helper objects, Winlogon notifications, auto-start services, and much more.

Autoruns goes way beyond the MSConfig utility bundled with Windows Me and XP.

Thanks Tolomir, none taken.  I had incorrectly assumed that you simply wished to reduce the number of Startup items, quite separate from your Malware problem(s).
Yes, Autoruns is already in my 'toolkit', but i'm grateful for the above information.  
Thank you.

Dear Tolomir, I got as far as purchasing a 3 month subscription for $10 and downloading the PREVX 2.0. I did look at the information about dealing with the start up items and found it looked very good. I will have time to implement some more of your ideas tommorrow. Thanks alot Jonvee for joining us with your comments as well  :)

Btw.  actually you didn't had to buy it at all:

It's a fair trial system:

We believe that if you're the sort of person that never gets their PC infected, then you should never have to pay for malware protection. We're also so confident in the protection provided by Prevx 2.0, that we're happy to let you have the product for free until we've saved you from at least one infection and thereby proven our worth to you. With this in mind we created the unique Free Trial Plus system.

---
But of cause when it's time I would buy it also.

Also from time to time check their blog:

http://www.prevx.com/blog.asp

They share quite interesting stories about new ways of possible computer infections, these one would never think about...


e.g.

Ransomware... Holding Corporate America Ransom!

Tolomir,

I looked at the auto runs program and was overwhelmed with all the details. I would not know what to uncheck. Its a great program but may take a little skill on my end to understand how to best use it to turn off some of the stuff running and starting.

PS I was glad to support the PrevX folks and take your word for it that they are working hard to help us all with their product.

Yes for sure, not all tools are that enduser friendly, but

just start autoruns, after all it's startphase is finished go to the menu:

Open options -> Hide Microsoft Entries

Press F5 (refresh)

Now click on the "Logon" Tab

There you find your current programs that are autostarting.

That is also more or less the area of msconfig.
