Before fixing anything with hijackthis, you should put it into it's own folder. You can do this by right-clicking on an empty area of your desktop, select New, Folder; give the new folder a name (such as HJT or HijackThis), and then drag the hijackthis.exe icon that is on your desktop into the new folder.

Then, close all browser windows, scan with hijackthis, and post a new log please.

Then, close all browser windows...

Yes. HijackThis cannot properly perform all of its fixes while Internet Explorer is running. The following entries in your log indicate that you had at least 3 instances of Internet Explorer running when you did your HJT scan:

C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE

Here is the new log as requested. Thanks!

Is there a possibility that you could try to post that log again?
As you can see, the line break/spacing came out pretty strangely, making it difficult to correctly interpret the log's contents.

Sure.

Ahhh... much better on the eyes; thanks.

Variants of this particular parasite can be difficult to remove, so this will be a multi-step process.

Credit: most of the following instructions have been shamelessly snorfled from our member "crunchie".

A. Download CWShredder 2 from here. Run it and press the *fix,* not scan and allow it to clean the infection. Close all browser and explorer windows before hitting the fix button.


B. Download about:Buster, unzip to your desktop, run it, and then:

1. Click "Update".
2. Click "Check For Update"

(If no new version is available, skip to step #4.)

3. Click "Download Update", and wait for it to be installed.
4. Click "Start".

(Wait for the initial ADS scan to complete.)

5. Click "Yes", to shutdown any IE session currently open.

(Wait for the about:blank scan to complete.)

6. Click "Ok", to scan once more.
7. Click "Yes", to shutdown any IE sessions currently open.
8. Click "Yes", to begin the second pass.

9. Click "Save log", and post this log back along with your new log.
10. Click "Exit".
11. Click "Exit".
12. Reboot.


C. Download and run HSRemove.


D. Reboot, run HJT again, and post a fresh log.

Good job- I don't see any more evidence of the "nasties" in your latest log! :)


Here are a few general things you can/should do to minimize your chances of future virus/malware infections (some of which you seem to be doing already):


1. Use Windows Automatic Update function to keep your system as up-to-date as possible with the most current Microsoft security and bug fixes.

2. Stop using Internet Explorer as your web browser. Because IE is so closely tied into the Windows operating system itself and contains so many security flaws, switching to another browser such as Netscape, Firefox, or Opera will greatly reduce the avenues through which spyware/adware/hijackers/etc. can infect your computer.

3. Install preventative utilities such as SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard (links are in my sig below), especially if you absolutely have to continue using Internet Exploder. These utilities protect areas of your system known to be vulnerable to malicious attacks.

4. Tighten up some of Internet Explorer's existing, default settings to make it more secure. Some info on that can be found here: http://tomcoyote.org/ieoe.php

5. Obviously-install a good anti-virus program and enable its "auto-protect" and email-scanning features.

6. Install a stand-alone firewall program such as Zone Alarm or Kerio Personal Firewall, or purchase the "Internet Security" packages offered by Symantec and McAfee.

7. None of your utilities are of much good if you don't check for updates frequently; updates for anti-spyware/anti-virus programs can be released as often as ever two or three days.
