Hi first of all my speaking language it’s Spanish so excuse me for my mistakes. I’ll appreciate any help that I can get. Here’s a summery of what’s been happening with my PC…
When I start my pc I receive immediately a massage about an error RUNDLL, and also I can’t summit any information in the internet because I get the cannot display the page this happen also when I try to see my email account in yahoo. I’ve been reading a lot of post about the same problems but it doesn’t seem to resolve my problem. When all of these started to happen I didn’t research for answer and I immediately started to erase stuff from the add/remove programs and I erased activex controls, I don’t know if that has something to do with my problem. Any way I’m going to post my log hope that anyone can help me thanx!

CoolWebSearch Trojan(s) Found!

You have a CWS (CoolWebSearch) http://www.intermute.com/spysubtract/cwshredder_download.html spyware variant. Download and run CWSShredder to remove it.


These entries have been positively identified as malicious programs. In the HijackThis program, place a check mark next to the following entries.

O2 - BHO: ViewSource Class - {587DBF2D-9145-4c9e-92C2-1F953DA73773} - C:\WINDOWS\winap\winap.dll (file missing)
(Description: CoolWebSearch parasite variant)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Image] rundll32 C:\WINDOWS\image.dll,Install
(Description: CoolWebSearch parasite related )

O16 - DPF: {1D4DB7D2-6EC9-47A3-BD87-1E41684E07BB} - http://ak.imgfarm.com/images/nocach...etup1.0.0.8.exe
(Description: Unknown imgfarm.com)


The following are not necessarily spyware/malware, but we suggest you place a check mark next to the following entries, as these programs may be taking up system resources.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HotKeysCmds] C:\WINDOWS\System32\hkcmd.exe
(Description: Intel hotkey applet. Unnecessary. Removing this will free up a small amount of system resources.)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Internet Optimizer] \"C:\Program Files\Internet Optimizer\optimize.exe\"
(Description: Internet connection optimizer. Leave this enabled if you find it improves your connection. Otherwise, remove it to free up some system resources. )

O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OSA.EXE
(Description: Microsoft Office startup assistant. Not necessary. Removing this entry will free up a significant amount of system resources.)

1) Press the "Fix checked" button. Then close HijackThis.

2) Then reboot your computer.

3) Delete the file image.dll which resides in C:\WINDOWS\System32\ or C:\WINDOWS\System\

4) Empty your recycle bin.

5) Run Windows Update and install all critical updates.

6) Make sure your anti-virus program is up to date with the latest patches. If you do not have an anti-virus program, download and install AVG Personal Edition Anti-Virus, which is free.

7) Reboot one last time. Your PC should now be free from spyware!
We suggest that you run HijackThis again, just to make sure that none of the entries that you removed suddenly reappeared. If they haven't, print out our HijackThis log and put it somewhere safe. You can refer to it later if your PC starts acting up.

Also, download Ewido and run that, after you do the above.

You can download a trial version of Ewido here: http://www.ewido.net/en/

Be sure you update it before using it, and when it finds a problem, be sure to select the check box to do the same action (clean) when it finds a problem, otherwise, you will have to click continue, to keep scanning with every problem it finds.


thanx for your help i did what you said... i can't find the file image.dll and when i try to run window updates it says that my current security settings prohibt running activeX controls and then...
