Recently I noticed my whole system was running really slow, especially online.

I've run cleanup, ad-aware, and virusscan, but it seems like there's still a problem.

When I was searching through my C drive i found a notepad file entitled "crash" that's 1,117 kb, or 1.08 MB. I thought this was really unusual for a notepad file, but i'm worried about it being on my system.

I ran hijack this, here's that log:

Your log is clean. You can fix the following entrys if you like...

Did you open that Crash.log? There's a couple of programs that create a crash.txt log on C:\. There is also a trojan that does the same thing and keeps writeing to that file. Let's make sure you don't have that...


Please download Trend Micro™ Anti-Spyware for the Web Utility (by clicking the "Scan and Clean your PC" button).
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click the new icon on your desktop (tmas-web-scan.exe)
  • It will say "Loading TrendMicro definitions".
  • Once the definitions are loaded, the program will appear to close then re-open.
  • Click "Start Scan"
  • After it's done scanning, click "Scan Results"
  • Make sure all items found have a check next to them, then click "Clean Threats Now".
  • Click Exit.

Reboot your computer. In place of the TrendMicro icon will be a text file called "Antispyware.log", please double-click that log and copy the entire contents and paste them here.

I then need you to repeat the same procedure above again... using the TrendMicro tool. I need the log from the second scan/clean...NOT the first...as this will contain what’s left in the system.
