Hi!
I have had just about the same problem as I found out that lots of others as well have encountered. Hotmail leaves me with a blank page when trying to log in, although the login process seems to work just fine.

I found out about HijackThis and thought I would try it out, since I have Norton Antivirus, ZoneAlarm Firewall, SpyBot S&D, and Adaware SE and none of these seems to be able to fix the problem.

The problems don't stop there, though... When HijackThis starts to create the log file, Norton Antivirus keeps deleting the log file with this notice:

Object name - C:\Documents and S....\hijackthis.log
Virus name - MHTMLRedir.Exploit
Action taken - Automatically deleted.

So, it appears that HijackThis is trying to save a virus in the log file and Norton Antivirus is deleting it.

Does anyone recognise this problem? I would be very grateful for help of any kind - with both the HijackThis problem and the Hotmail login problem!

Thank you and a Happy New Year,
Maria.

Hi Caperjack!
Thank you - that worked fine. Just a bit worried about that virus thing since my computer seems to freak out quite frequently despite all nice programs I have downloaded to prevent that. Here comes my HijackThis logfile - could you also help me find what might cause MSN Hotmail to fail opening the Inbox after login is completed? That would really make my day! I can see that I have a few of "Hijacked Internet access by New.Net" - is this it and, if so, can you tell me how to get rid of them?

First of all we have to remove Newdotnet, either from add/remove programs, or by going here and scrolling down to the uninstall tool.

Scan with hijackthis and tick the boxes next to all the following entries, then close all browser and explorer windows, and hit the "Fix checked" button.

Download, install and keep updated, Spywareblaster from www.javacoolsoftware.com to help keep your system clean.

Reboot and post another log please.

Go to Windows Update and get the Critical Updates for your system. Hold off on SP2, however, until your system is clean.

These look highly suspicious too:

And get rid of realplayer. It's a spyware infested mess.

Replace Norton with a good AV product.

I believe Norton is a matter of preference and opinion. I have had it for over 6 months now and had absolutely no problems with it, nor have I been infected with any viruses. I think if you like Norton and are comfortable with it, keep it. :)

Ok - all work done so far, although my problem with accessing Hotmail still remains (might be caused by something else, I guess). Here is the new logfile:

Does this look clean to you?

Thank you guys for all help - this is SO appreciated. You really do a wonderful job here and I hope that we amateurs don't annoy you too much with all our HijackThis logs...

Amatures don't annoy us, we're all amateurs of some sort :)

You still need to get your Critical Updates from Windows, that may fix your Hotmail problem.

Close all browser windows, scan with HJT, and have it fix the following entries:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName = Länkar
O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {CD67F990-D8E9-11d2-98FE-00C0F0318AFE} - (no file)

That's all I see. In addition to your Windows Updates, you should also get SpywareBlaster and/or SpywareGaurd; links to both can be found in this thread (along with other helpful advice):
