Trend Micro HijackThis Report

Hello again fellow Comodos,

I’ve come across issues with my PC in the past but I think I’ve fixed them all. I have Comodo Firewall and ESET NOD32 installed. Could someone please give my Trend Micro HijackThis report a once over please,

I’ve analyzed your log and the only things that I don’t know are :

O16 - DPF: {0972B098-DEE9-4279-AC7E-4BAAA029102D} (PhotoboxPhotowaysUploader5 Control) -
Do you know this entry ?
O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{B88F0BFF-853E-40DD-A158-09FD9C31C937}: NameServer =, O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{C614F786-E421-488E-8F2A-9A7E1612E906}: NameServer =,
[s]Do you know the IP or Domain ','? If not, fix this entry. (quote from[/s] edit: these are part of Comodo DNS and are not advised to delete.

best regards,

I used Boots photo shop to print some pictures afew days ago, I think the photobox entry applys to that.

I don’t know about the other 2 entrys regarding IP or Domain ‘,’

What should I do?

I got rid of both, thank you eXPerience, is comodo secure DNS (chuckle)

I found out how to change back in help > Network Connections > Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) > Properties >>>>

Preferred DNS server address for Comodo Secure DNS is:

Alternate DNS server address for Comodo Secure DNS is:

but it also reads,

You can disable Comodo Secure DNS by:
  • Selecting ‘Obtain DNS server address automatically’. This means that you will use the DNS server provided by your ISP. This is the option that most home users should choose if they wish to disable the service.


  • Entering different preferred and alternate DNS server IP addresses.

Does it matter if I don’t have Comodos secure DNS? and also in the help pictures, the network connections have a “pad lock” on them, mine hasn’t but firewall is active does it matter. That little “padlock” comes up when you enable windows firewall, windows firewall is currently disabled on my machine of course and so is Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service

Is it ? Sorry, I wasn’t aware of that.

thierry, sorry for this inconvenience. Do you have your computer or your router configured for Comodo’s DNS ? If it’s the computer please make sure that all the settings are still there XP, Vista, Mac OS x

that aside : I think that your pc is alright ? Do you get any alerts from virii or so ?

best regards,

Done, changed DNS to Secure Comodo settings.

Just one question mate, Miscellaneous > Settings > General Tab >>>> Automatically detect new private networks ?

Do I need this enabled, I’m not going to use this PC connection to share anything including my net line so do I need it on? Is this enabled for my ISP or others to connect? I stealth my ports but I did get a request earlyer when restarting, for an unknown IP to connect to my PC. Also how do I find out what IP’s are connected to my PC, using my internet line other than network defense which is on the main page when you open Comodo Firewall

The alert is only there to notify and for convenience. You can use the network zone in combination with the Stealth Ports Wizard to easily define a new trusted network.

When you don’t need it you can disable it under Miscellaneous → Settings → General.
