I've spent the day looking for (and trying) various solutions to my problem, but so far haven't managed to fix it. Here's a quick rundown of the obvious symptoms:

My Firefox browser home page (which used to be the Firefox/Google page) is now pointed at google.co.jp. This persists even when typing "www.google.com" manually. I've discovered that IE (which I never use) is also affected.

I cannot get into my Hotmail account. I can get to the login screen, but no further; upon hitting the button to submit my username and password, I get to stare at a blank window. Likewise with eBay's search function.

Attempts to use the System Restore functionality fail.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

I've downloaded HijackThis, and have created a logfile with it (I closed all browser windows, but I was *not* in Safe Mode). The file it produced is pasted below.

Thanks for any advice or information y'all feel like dispensing.

Ok, I see several things.

First, let's fix the LSP.

Download LSP-Fix and run it, fixing what it tells you to.

Next, continue by downloading CCleaner, and specifically choosing the most recent version.

Then, follow these steps:

1. Close all programs so that you are at your desktop.
2. Double-click on the "My Computer" icon.
3. Select the "Tools" menu and click "Folder Options".
4. After the new window appears select the "View" tab.
5. Place a checkmark in the checkbox labeled "Display the contents of system folders".
6. Under the "Hidden files and folders" section select the radio button labeled "Show hidden files and folders".
7. Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled "Hide file extensions for known file types".
8. Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled "Hide protected operating system files". 9. Press the "Apply" button and then the "OK" button and shutdown My Computer.
10. Now your computer is configured to show all hidden files.

Now, install the program. Open it, and choose the 'Options' tab. Inside, hit the 'Custom' tab, and add the following folders (Note: Not all of these files are on every computer. If one of these isn't present, skip it):

C:\Windows\Temp
C:\Temp
C:\Documents and Settings\<Every user listed>\Local Settings\Temp
C:\Documents and Settings\<Every user listed>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5
C:\Documents and Settings\<Every user listed>\Local Settings\History
C:\Documents and Settings\<Every user listed>\Cookies
C:\Windows\Prefetch

After doing this, move back to the 'Cleaner' tab, and inside this, be sure your open to the 'Windows' tab. Inside, check the box labeled 'Custom Files and Folders'.

Next, after following all of these steps, you're ready to scan. Run scans in both the 'Cleaner' and 'Issues'. Note: It might take several scans in each to remove all of the junk.

____________________

Now you're ready for Ewido.

Follow up by downloading Ewido Security Suite.

  • Install ewido security suite
  • When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck..
    • Install background guard
    • Install scan via context menu
  • Launch ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop, double-click it.
  • The program will now open to the main screen.
  • When you run ewido for the first time, you will get a warning "Database could not be found!". Click OK. We will fix this in a moment.
  • You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.
    • On the left hand side of the main screen click Update.
    • Then click on Start Update.
  • The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed. The status bar at the bottom will display "Update successful"
  • Click on Scanner
  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • You will be prompted to clean the first infection.
  • Select "Perform action on all infections", then proceed.
  • Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
  • Click Save report.
  • Save the report .txt file to your desktop or a location where you can find it easily.

Post back here with the Ewido scan log, and a new HJT log.

Thanks.

Okay, I followed your instructions, and here's the Ewido log (it didn't find anything, but I had run Ewido earlier today, and it removed something like 280 infected objects. Unfortunately, the new logfile overwrote the old). I'll put the new HJT log in a separate post, for readability. By the way, I really appreciate your taking the time to help me out. Thank you!

Hmm, disappointingly, I see nothing definitive in your log that points to the problem.

However, I AM suspicious about a couple:

1)ResChanger 2005 - Do you know what this is/use this program?

2)PhotoShow Deluxe Media Manager - Do ya kno what this is/use the program?


____________

Secondly, we're gonna use Adaware and see if it picks up anything else:

Please do the following: Download, install, update, configure, and run Ad-Aware SE Personal 1.06.

  • Download Ad-Aware SE Personal 1.06:
  • Install Ad-Aware SE Personal
    • Double-click on aawsepersonal.exe to install the program.
    • Follow the default settings for installation.
    • After the program has finished installing, uncheck the "Perform a full system scan now", "Update definition file now", and "Open the help file now" boxes.

    • Click "General" on the left hand side to display the General Settings box.
      • Make sure the following items have a green check/tick next to them. If they do not, click once on the circle next to them to put a green checkmark:
        • "Automatically save logfile"
        • "Automatically quarantine objects prior to removal"
        • "Safe Mode (always request confirmation)"
        • "Prompt to update outdated definitions" - change to 7 days from the default 14.
    • Click "Scanning" on the left hand side to display the Scan Settings box.
      • Make sure the following items have a green check/tick next to them. If they do not, click once on the circle next to them to put a green checkmark:

        • "Scan my Hosts file"
    • Click "Advanced" on the left hand side to display the Advanced Settings box.
      • Make sure the following items have a green check/tick next to them. If they do not, click once on the circle next to them to put a green checkmark:

        • "Let Windows remove files in use at next reboot"
        • "Delete quarantined objects after restoring"
    • Once you are done with these settings, click "Proceed" to save them.
    • This will take you back to the main screen.
  • Run Ad-Aware SE Personal
    • Click the "Start" button.
    • Uncheck the "Search for negligible risk entries" entry.
    • Choose the "Use custom scanning options" scan mode.
    • Click the "Next" button.
    • Ad-Aware will begin to scan for malware residing on your computer.
    • Allow the scan to finish.
    • Right-click on any entry in the list and click "Select All" to select the whole list.
    • Click "Next" and choose "OK" at the prompt to quarantine and remove the objects.

Lastly, run HJT again and post a log back here, along with answers to those questions about the programs.

Thanks.

Try the following also;

Download the Hoster.
Run it and press "Restore Original Hosts" and press "OK". Exit Program.
Note that if you have a custom host file, this will remove it. You can edit the host file with this program too.

I followed the above instructions, and nothing was found. I was getting pretty frustrated when, all of a sudden... BSOD!

After some initial cursing, I checked out the BSOD message, did a bit of research, and uninstalled my nVidia firewall. Suddenly, all of my problems went away. This was very interesting to me, since I'd previously turned off my firewall with no change in the problems I was having; it took uninstalling the thing to make the computer work properly.

Thanks for all the help - I've got several new tools in my arsenal thanks to you folks. I really appreciate the time you spent poring over my logs and giving me advice to try and help me get my computer back on its feet.

did a bit of research

Look! Somebody bright enough to do research themselves!

Heh good job :) And awsome job researching.

Thanks.

Well, I can't help but think that if I'd only gotten the BSOD (and its mystery-solving error message) earlier, I could have saved you folks a lot of effort on my behalf. Still, your advice did help me clean up something like 280 "infected objects" that I would have otherwise been blissfully unaware of, so it's not entirely wasted.

Thanks again!
