I made a stupid mistake, I mistyped elderscrolls and went to a "bad" page instead of going to the official site.

Ewido picked up nothing, Kaspersky IS picked up nothing, but I have a hyjackthis log entry:

Code:
O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [GrpConv] grpconv.exe -o
I'm running XP and this was not there before...

I did notice a Neptune homepage in my program files, which I know shouldn't be there, haven't figured out how to remove it yet. And I don't want to reboot yet because I can tell something is going to happen when I do. I have a good hunch that the two are related.

Here is the full Hyjack log:

Any tips on finding out whats going to get installed if I reboot and clean it before it gets installed?

Edit: I figured out what Neptune is, is the active X plugin for Opera. I do need that.

I think grpconv.exe is harmless. - File Information - but I suppose it could be running at startup to help something else install, I really don't know.

Have hijackthis 'Fix' the following:

I suggest exporting the runonce key listing grpconv.exe (backing it up) and then deleting the runonce key. Make sure it is not in HKCU either in the runonce. Setup Spybot Search and Destroy to run after updating it. If the scan reports it needs to scan at startup, go ahead and reboot and have it do it's dirty work.

Should be OK after that.

This one

Yeah... that download manager, that came from the MS site when I was trying to grab the Vista beta. That's gone now. I didn't want to install the darn thing, but Opera kept erroring out on my transfers, and MS has a fit if you visit certain MSDN sites without using IE....

The MSO poppped in after I installed the Office beta.

I went ahead and got rid of the grpconv.exe and rebooted, everything seems to be OK. S&D scan was clean, but I perfer my Ewido.

Thanks for the tips!

EDIT: Doh! Tried to rep ya, but I'm getting this: "You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Mastershakes again." Quit helping me so much!! lol.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
