Hi,

I have Windows 98 installed and IE 6. The latest fixes are installed from Microsoft website. Last time I used the computer, several weeks ago, it was fine.

The computer wont load Ebay, will load Yahoo but not the title bar etc at the top of the page and wont then load any of the linked pages when you click the links.

It will not load www.microsoft.com but will load support.microsoft.com.

It seems that its just useful websites/ sites I visit frequently it doesn't like.

I assumed this was some sort of virus - have used Mcaffee free virus scan over the net - found one trojan and I deleted the file. I installed Avast and have run that, found another trojan and deleted the file.

I have scanned for adware and Spyware and removed the relevant items.

I have removed temp files and all temp internet files and cookies.

I then installed Firefox browser and that behaves in the same manner as IE 6.

When trying to load ebay, after a few seconds the message at the bottom left of the IE screen reads: //C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SHDOCLC.DLL/navcancl.htm

I have also tried the control panel option to repair IE 6. I then restored back to an earlier version - same problem - and then downloaded the IE 6 update to restore to IE 6.

If you would need further details of the problem, please let me know.

If anyone knows how to cure this without a complete reformat and reinstallation, please could they let me know as I have been trying for several hours now,

A Hijack This report will be posted shortly (thanks 'caperjack' for the earlier help and suggestions in the IE forum).

Many thanks in advance,

Pete

I'd like to suggest another program for you to try, I've found it can find things most other programs can't.

It's called CounterSpy and you can get it from here:

http://www.download.com/3000-8022_4-10337358.html

It has a 15-day free trial which will be plenty of time to get your system cleaned up, or you can purchase it for $20 (US). After you download it, install it; when asked for a registration number, just click next.

Before scanning the first time, make the following adjustments to the settings:

CounterSpy Settings

At the very top, click on File, and then Check for updates
When it’s finished updating, click the ‘Close’ button

Under ‘Spyware Scan’ on the left, click on ‘Run a spyware scan’
In the left pane, click on ‘Scan Options’
Mark ‘Full system scan’
Check all boxes under ‘Full system scan,’ including ‘Save these options’
In the right pane, near the bottom, click ‘Manage Schedule’
On the left side, select your preferred schedule options
On the right side, under ‘Scheduled Scan Options,’ check:
‘Always run a deep scan’
‘Automatically remove spyware cookies’
Click the ‘Update Schedule’ button

At the top, click on ‘System Tools’
Double-click on ‘History Cleaner’
Check the following options (if they are not grayed-out):
‘Internet Explorer History’
‘Internet Explorer Cookies’
‘Kazaa’
‘Temporary Internet Files’
Review the list for any other ‘History’ items you wish to clean
At the bottom, click ‘Remember checked’
Click on the ‘Clean History’ button
Click the ‘Yes’ button, and then the ‘OK’ button

Click ‘Back’ at the top
Double-click ‘My PC Checkup’
Click the ‘Start’ button
In the first part of the list, uncheck everything up to any ActiveX entries; the entries you uncheck can be checked later, individually, to ensure they won’t interfere with your browsing habits (for maximum protection, however, you may leave them all checked)
Leave all ActiveX entries checked
In the second part of the list ‘(Items already changed below…),’ leave all entries checked
Click the ‘Continue’ button
Click the ‘OK’ button

At the top, click ‘Spyware Scan’
On the right side, click the ‘Scan Now’ button
This will take awhile depending on the size of your drive(s), number of files, CPU, etc. (40 minutes on my computer)
When the scan is complete, use the drop-down arrow next to each entry and select ‘Remove’ (if you see any entries that you think you may wish to keep, ‘Ignore’ them for now and post them for recommendations)
Select ‘Create restore point’ if you want CounterSpy to create a Windows XP System Restore point
At the bottom, click ‘Take Action’
Click the ‘Close’ button and exit the program

Delete the entire contents of these folders (not the folders themselves):

Local Settings\Temp
Cookies
History
Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

Delete the entire contents of your C:\Windows\Temp folder.

Delete the entire contents of your C:\Temp folder (if you have one).

Do a search for *.tmp and delete all entries found.

(Note: if any of these temporary files cannot be deleted while in ‘normal mode,’ try Safe Mode.

Empty your Recycle Bin.

Now, reboot, close all browser windows, scan with HJT, and post a new log.

Thanks for your reply - I'll give it a go at the earliest opportunity - the PC is part way through a defrag at the moment,

Thanks,

Pete

That's logical. If it's indeed the same engine they share DLLs.
Many programs have very messy uninstallers that don't check whether DLLs are used by others and just delete anything they may have installed themselves...
