You appear to be infected with the "Alexa" malware. This is indicated by the entry: C:\WINDOWS\web\related.htm

Running SpyBot - Search and Destroy will rid you of this annoyance. Besides that, there doesn't seem to be any other problem(s) as far as your HijackThis! log is concerned :D

hey paddy,

thanks for helping.

i forgot to mention that i have already used spybot, ad-aware, antivir and bitdefender but it didnĀ“t work out...

ok, i deleted the C:\WINDOWS\web\related.htm-file but i have still problems.

what else can i do?

Hmm, well I can't see anything else in the log that would indicate what the problem is, and the fact that you've already run those anti-spyware programs has left me even more stumped lol.

The only other possibility I can think of is that you've installed a program which comes bundled with "legitimate" spyware/adware/malware. Some companies let you use their software for free, providing that you agree to install their spyware. This would also explain why your anti-spyware programs didn't fix the problem - those programs don't remove the bundled, "legitimate" spyware because they know that removing it will corrupt the program that the spyware came bundled with.

If you can come back with a list of programs that are currently installed it might help to shed some light on the subject. Off the top of my head, the following programs come bundled with spyware:

DivX Codec - I've seen the Gator spyware included in this package in the past.
Messenger Plus! - An add-on for MSN Messenger. It comes with an optional sponsor program (i.e. spyware) that you can opt out of during the installation.

Some P2P/filesharing programs like eDonkey, Usenet, etc. have sponsor programs bundled with them, too.

If you can get us a list of programs to check out, or if you want to google each one yourself and see what is said about them, it would eliminate the possibility if nothing else :D

I'd suggest installing the free SpywareBlaster utility; it blocks known "bad" addresses/domains, including abcsearch. A short tutorial on installing and updating SpywareBlaster can be found here.

Also- you should try running AdAware and SpyBot in Safe Mode if you haven't already; they might be able to find/fix more "nasties" that way:

- Before booting into Safe Mode, open SpyBot and AdAware and use each program's online update feature to make sure that you have the absolutely most current spyware definition databases installed. Do not run scans yet, just close each program when it finishes installing its updates.

- Reboot into Safe Mode (you get to the safe mode boot option by hitting the F8 key as your computer is starting up).

- Run both utilities (the order doesn't matter) and have each program fix everything it finds.

- Reboot normally.

Glad to be of assistance!

DMR: It never even occurred to me to run anti-spyware scans in SafeMode! Learn something new every day ;) Cheers mate! hehe

You're welcome, sauronflorik; glad we could help :)


Paddy,

You might know the reasoning behind Safe Mode scans already, but I'll post the basic info just for reference:

When Windows is running in its normal start-up mode, spyware and virus removal programs can have difficulty removing some malicious infections due to the fact that components of the infections have already loaded themselves at Windows start-up, and are active at the time the removal programs try to delete them. While the removal programs can terminate many of the active nasties, others present more of a problem.

One reason for this is that many infections install multiple files which act as guardians for one another; monitoring each other's "health". When one of the files gets shut down by a removal utility, another guardian file senses this, and restarts (and in some cases actually recreates) the file that was killed. Additionally, infections can use hidden .dll files which are activated at boot-up by obscure registry entries, and these dlls can be quite difficult to detect and deactivate.

In Safe Mode however, Windows loads only a bare minimum of services, drivers, and processes; it ignores most normal startup items, and it does not process the entire registry. This means that many of the "autostart" techniques used by infections are also ignored, making the infections essentially dormant in Safe Mode. The fact that the infections are inactive makes it much easier for removal programs to thoroughly remove them from your system.

Hi megaman99

First of all- welcome to DaniWeb :)

We ask that members not tag their questions on to a thread previously started by another member (regardless of how similar your problem might seem). Not only does it divert the focus of the thread away from the original poster's problem, but it also makes it less likely that you yourself will get the individual attention that you need.

Please start your own thread and post your questions and HJT log in that thread.

For a full description of our posting guidelines and general rules of conduct, please see this page:

Thanks for understanding.

You've got a variant of the SpywareQuake scumware; the entire range of IP address range of 85.255.112.0 - 85.255.127.255 is owned by the fine folks who distribute the infections.

Please give us a fresh HJT log (it's been a while since your last post) and we'll take it from there.
