Getting syntax errors and -404- with most pages in IE.

Firefox cannot find any webpages, tells me the URL is invalid.

I have run Ad-Aware, CCleaner, and U-Wipe to clear out all files and clean up some programs. Still no fix. I have run HijackThis and the logfile came out as follows:

Hi and welcome to Daniweb halfmnhalfamzng :). There are a couple of things there that need removing...

===============

Still in HiJackThis, click "Scan", then check(tick) the following, if present:


R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://red.clientapps.yahoo.com/cus...rch/search.html
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://red.clientapps.yahoo.com/cus...://my.yahoo.com


Now, with all windows closed except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".

===============

Download and run Winsockfix from here http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Network-Tweak/WinSockFix.shtml

===============

After rebooting, rescan with hijackthis and post back a new log. Let me know how everything goes.

Thanks for the quick response!

I had HJT fix the two indicated areas... and then ran the winsock program you had me download. Still having connectivity issues and my wife's username is having an interesting problem... at times when I type in (for example www.msn.com) a website it will change the URL to make it look as entered as www.www.msn.com.org

This almost seems to me like some sort of script that has somehow worked itself into our system. I leave the real answers to others more informed than myself.

Here is the requested updated HJT log:

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.

Thats all I can see :).

Although I doubt this will solve your general browsing problems, that log needs a little clean-up:

1. Uninstall WeatherBug through your Add/Remove Programs control panel; the program has spyware/adware components. I would also suggest removing the Bodog Poker program; although I don't know if that particular gambling program comes with "unwanted guests", many such programs do.


2. Have HijackThis fix:

3. Delete these folders entirely:

C:\Program Files\AWS
C:\Program Files\Bodog Poker


4. Empty your Recycle Bin.
