Subject: [Full-disclosure] Question:  Need Suggestions


I lurk on this list not posting much and watching, learning from those of
you who do.  I am in need of s suggestion.

I run WinXP SP2.  I am a sounds freak, so I have my system configured to
play a small sound when a program opens, and another when it closes.  Over
the past week, I have noticed something starting and ending almost
instantaneously when I start certain programs, for instance, Skype.
Normally, I can use Dtaskmanager, Autoruns, and a few other process managers
to watch and figure out what is running, but whatever this process is
happens so fast I cannot catch it.

What I would like to find is some type of Windows software that will log
processes starting and ending to a text file so I can review it and figure
out what exactly is going on.

I have run multiple online virus and spyware scans, multiple local virus and
spyware scans, I have run rootkit revealer, HiJack this, and a few others.
They find nothing, so it is probably innocuous, but it is making me nuts
trying to figure out what ended up on this system.  I am very obsessive
about keeping it clean and organized, and running great.

Any serious help is welcome.  I can do without the "run Linux" and Windows
sucks statements.

Thanks for any and all constructive replies.

 I have used hijackthis for a few Windows machines looking for suspicious threads. However, I dont have much experience 
with it, I've heard it works prety good!

Am sure you can get it here


Let me know if this is what you were looking for?
