I posted this on an earlier thread and caperjack said I should start my own. Basically my default home page has been redirected every time I reboot to
I have run Sypot and tried Hijeckthis.exe but they did not solve the problem. caper's reply indicated I shoudl run cwshredder.exe, then re-run hijachthis and post the log. I have done that. Seems that the home page issue was solved by the steps but I was hoping someone could take a quick look at the log and see if there is something else lurking in the shadows of my computer.

I figured CWShredder would fix it but it is recommended to run SpyBot and Ad-Aware first .

See How I got Infected In the first place Also in my Signature .

Good Luck

Thanks for the quick turn-around. I read, installed and implemented some quick security and system updates. The big one was SP1a for XP - this should close the JVM hole that a lot of this garbage exploited. I have more to read but I think I'll be safer for the moment.
I appreciate the help!


Glad i could help !

I also am having some serious problems on my computer. for the last few months i can not even get online to go to a website it redirects to various search engines that dont work such as NAVA and I lookup and porn and casino sites. i installed ad aware and spybot search and destroy and spyware blaster and it seems to be running a little faster but i cant seem to get my anti virus installed because i had to restart at a previous date on system recovery to even get online.

i had the same problem but got rid of it with adaware 6

Hey folks.

Please- Do not post your questions in someone else's pre-existing thread.

It becomes too confusing to keep track of which answers relate to which question. It also creates a lot of work for the moderators, as we have to weed through these "piggybacked" threads and untangle the mess by splitting out the piggybacked questions (and their answers) into separate threads.

Dani (the site Admin) has outlined our policy in the posting guidelines in the "Announcement" thread at the top of each forum. Please read those guidelines if haven't already:

"Every question or new thought should have its own thread. Replies to a previous post should be thread replies to that particular thread. Do not piggyback threads by posting your question as a reply to another question."


Please delete your post here and start your own thread.


Thew need to be some way to locking the old threads once the problem is solved . to stop the piggiebacking

Thew need to be some way to locking the old threads once the problem is solved . to stop the piggiebacking

There definitely is- the mods have the ability to lock threads, but the problem is that quite often the original poster's question hasn't even been answered/solved before the piggybacking happens. We don't want to lock a thread at that point because in doing so we'd also be locking the original poster out of a solution.

Don't worry though, we now have The Sacred Wet Trout:


A couple of TroutSlaps, and even the most reticent members will fall in line...




Because this thread's original question was apparently answered (by you) 2 months ago, and the thread-starter did seem to imply that your suggestions did the trick, I will mark this one as solved and lock it as well to prevent further "tagging onto".

(Dani- if you don't feel that this appropriate, please let me know ASAP)
