w-find.com/index.htm is always coming back as my IE start page! Also, networking is sporadic on this machine now.

raphaeln,

Hi and welcome to the Daniweb forums :).

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

Download, then unzip to "C:\HJT", the newest version of HiJackThis; version 1.99.1. Then repost your log, either now, or after following the steps in the solution (if provided in this post). This version has features that might be more helpful in 'cleaning' up your system.

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

Please visit at least two of the following sites for an online virus scan:

BitDefender Free Online Virus Scan
http://www.bitdefender.com/scan/licence.php
Make sure you tick AutoClean under Scan Options.

Panda ActiveScan
http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/com/activescan_principal.htm
Make sure you tick Disinfect automatically under Scan Options.

Housecall at TrendMicro
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/start_corp.asp
Make sure you tick Auto Clean.
When it completes, post back the full filename of any files that cannot be cleaned or deleted.

eTrust Antivirus Web Scanner
http://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/virusinfo/scan.aspx

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

Go to Add/Remove programs and remove(uninstall) the following, if present:

AdwareAlert

The above could appear anywhere within the entry. Be careful not to remove any personal or system software.

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

Now, let's open a command prompt by going to the start menu and then select 'Run'.

In the box that pops up type in 'cmd'. The command prompt will open.

OR

You can go to Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt. Unregister the dll(s) we're going to remove, by entering the following:

regsvr32 /u stype10.dll

It's ok, if these aren't found or 'error' out. If you want, just copy and paste the individual lines to the command prompt to save typing them in.

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

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

Now, close all instances of Internet Explorer and any other windows you have open except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".

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

Locate and delete the following item(s), if present. Make sure you are able to view system and hidden files/ folders:

folders...

C:\Program Files\AdwareAlert

files...

C:\WINDOWS\System32\stype10.dll
C:\WINDOWS\System32\sysmon45.exe
c:\windows\wtqlsnt.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\eplrr3.dll

-

Note that some of these file(s)/folder(s) may or may not be present. If present, and cannot be deleted because they're 'in use', try deleting them in "Safe Mode".

-

Reboot.

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

After rebooting, rescan with hijackthis and post back a new log. Please let me know how your pc is now.

==

Please go to Jotti's and have this file scanned. Post the results back here.

C:\WINDOWS\System\SMSS.EXE

No real problems there that I can see. Only an orphaned entry.

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

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


O2 - BHO: (no name) - {DCE80CA4-B555-44D8-B423-A75D6C345EE1} - (no file)


Now, close all instances of Internet Explorer and any other windows you have open except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".

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

Why do you say there may be other problems?
