Be aware that many of the tools we use for malware removal are designed for 32-bit systems and do not work or can give misleading results on 64-bit machines. They don't show up on my ZA logs (because maybe ZA was still in the temporary "learning" mode) and I was not warned by counterspy of any modifications. Run HijackThis again, and post the new log in your new reply.

Post it in full, don't worry about clogging the forum or whatever. directory Therefore, when HijackThis reads an information from the registry that only has a 64-bit value pointing to a file in the system32 folder it will be searching for that file in
If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. This could due to one of your other security programs which was not disabled properly or by trying to fix while not logged in as Administrator or an account with administrator dll and registry entry are not present, at work kloggon.dll is on system. I've seen threads where Experts/Helpers had advised to have the entries fixed thinking that these are redundant services, while others had advised to replace the missing files.
But I see too many helpers removing perfectly harmless 016 items...................................IV. http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/file-missing-entries-showing-in-hijackthis.216552/ Operating System:Windows Vista Home Premium Software Version:7.1 (Vista) Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite chiazApril 17th, 2008, 08:10 PMHello.

Well as you may imagine it wasn't long before the computer started showing signs of viruses. have a peek at these guys Should a problem arise during the fix you would have NO good working configuration to go back to get the computer up and running.

This Message was on the web site - apparently the online scanner feature is currently not working Any other suggestions? For instance, running HijackThis on a 64-bit machine may show log entries which indicate (file missing) when that is NOT always the case.
After reviewing the whole log from the scan I noticed several more entries that were proceeded with the (file missing) designation which brings me to my question for this forum.
WOW64 is the x86 emulator that allows 32-bit Windows-based applications to run on 64-bit Windows but x86 applications are re-directed to the x86 \syswow64 when seeking the x64 \system32. Preferably the fix should START with those steps and finish the cleanup of strays or undetected items with HJT. And yes I did complete scans with housecall (trend micro), activescan 2.0 (panda), f-secure, onecare, b-i-t-defender and all other big name company free online scans (nothing comes up but cookies). There are certain areas in the log that a "fix" will do nothing more than delete a shortcut to the file, or remove the DLL from starting at Windows boot.Yes, but
The fact is, there is nothing wrong with these "file missing" entries, no need to be alarmed, and you don't need to do anything with those entries as these files are The easiest and safest way to do this is:Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" Following the uninstall, I re-ran Hijack This and saw a registry associated with AVG, following the registry entry log item it was proceeded with file missing in parantheses, i.e (file missing). http://pcialliance.org/hjt-file/hjt-file-how-does-it-look.html Updater (YahooAUService) - Yahoo!
The only time you should fix the (file missing) in those sections is IF AND ONLY IF you see a *bad* file there.
