Hi All,
I'm new here and have the same problem with the About:Blank homepage. Here is my Hijack This report.
I also have been trying to delete an xxx toolbar in the add/delete progams file, but that's not working. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Please do the following.
go to http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ for an on-line scan & set it to autoclean for you.

Download & instal Adaware from http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=506
& update it B4 scanning.
In settings under 'scanning,' have it set to
'scan within archives,'
'scan active processes,'
'scan registry,'
'deepscan registry'
'scan my IE Favourites for banned URL's,'
'scan my host's file.'
Also in tweaks under 'cleaning engine' set it to 'Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion.'
Remove what it finds by placing a check in the box to the left of the object.

Download & instal Spybot S&D from http://www.safer-networking.org/index.php?page=download Update it B4 scanning. Go into settings & have it check for Beta releases also & download if available.
After the scan is complete, have spybot fix everything marked RED.
On the page that first opens when you start Spybot there is an option to immunise, you should do this. In the immunise section there is also a link to download Spywareblaster. Download that & you can keep it updated by selecting the same link that you use to download it.

Download CWShredder from http://209.133.47.200/~merijn/files/CWShredder.exe & run it. Select the fix button & it will get rid of everything related to CoolWebSearch. Close ALL other programs & windows, including IE, before running CWShredder.

Reboot after doing this & post another log please.

Thanks Crunchy. Everything worked out fine. If you're ever in NYC I'll either buy you dinner or give you some free guitar lessons.

Cool. I taught my brother how to play though. LOL. Will you buy me the ticket to get there too?? lol.

Your next step is to go here & install ALL critical updates required for your system.

Important: Create a folder on the C: drive called C:\HJT.
You can do this by going to My Computer (Windows key+e) then double click on C: then right click and select New then Folder and name it HJT.
Unzip HijackThis into this folder. When you run HijackThis from this folder and have it "Fixed checked" it will create a backup file of modifications to use if restore is necessary.

The About:Blank homepage problem is back.

You have been hijacked again!
LolaWeb.winhost
--and a dialer. You also might want to install some free prevention measures, including SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard. These will stop malicious ActiveX installs, a major part of your problem.

Remove these, boot in to Safe Mode, and remove the associated files, if present:

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {8EA3B1C3-CC54-4508-803E-F13A26275DED} - c:\winnt\system32\efabfa.dll (file missing)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Resource wasters, remove:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For security reasons, you will also want to update Adobe Reader to v6.01 and WinZip to v9.0--or, better still, try the free 7-Zip instead.

OK guys,

I think that I've removed all of the viruses from my PC- the about:blank homepage problem seems to be fixed (once again). Here's my latest hijack this report- please let me know if you see anything weird in there. Thanks again.

Rurun Hijack This again and get rid of these:

Other then those, you look like you are in the clear :)

I think that I've removed all of the viruses from my PC- the about:blank homepage problem seems to be fixed (once again). Here's my latest hijack this report- please let me know if you see anything weird in there.

Nope, you are still hijacked by a morphing program that changes the DLL name each time it installs. You are going to have to go deeper to rid yourself of this one.

* First, turn off System Restore before removing stuff. Some of your problems may be sneaking back in that way.

* Then make sure that HijackThis is the only thing running.

* Next, go into the folder C:\Windows\Prefetch, and look at the files there. Are any of them suspect? List the files here. You may even want to reboot your computer into Safe Mode and then delete all the files in your Prefetch folder at this time, just to be safe. Viruses hide there.

* While you are in Safe Mode, go into the C:\WINNT\system32 folder and remove those wierd-named DLL files that have been piling up.

* I would also manually clean out your Temporary Internet Files, as well. See Microsoft's Really Hidden Files for more on this issue (warning: potentially offensive site-name and email address). Though the article was written for Windows 98, it still applies.

Here's some more prevention tools:

SpywareBlaster -- blocks malware installation. Not a removal tool, helps keep adware and spyware off your PC by blocking ActiveX for known malware. Updates available on a regular basis.

IE-SPYAD: Restricted Sites List for Internet Explorer. Registry add-in that moves known malware sites to the "Restricted" zone in IE to block the nasties.

XP Anti-Spy -- turn off the "phone home" functions in XP. Did you know that Windows XP, by default, monitors your computer usage and reports back to Microsoft? Slow it down, at least, with this tool.

Try again to remove these. Note that it's the same old stuff with a new name:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = res://C:\WINNT\system32\efje.dll/sp.html (obfuscated)

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://c:\winnt\system32\fcakddh.dll/sp.html (obfuscated)

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = res://C:\WINNT\system32\efje.dll/sp.html (obfuscated)

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = res://C:\WINNT\system32\efje.dll/sp.html (obfuscated)

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://C:\WINNT\system32\efje.dll/sp.html (obfuscated)

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = res://C:\WINNT\system32\efje.dll/sp.html (obfuscated)

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,HomeOldSP = about:blank

I stand corrected... thank you Michael.

I have been assessing logs for a year, and never had any recurring problems when it came to the (obfuscated) entries.

However, I am enlightened today.

;)

Thanks for the advice. I'm not sure that I have a system restore feature due to the fact that I have Windows 2000 and not XP. Is there something different I should do?

Good point. It was not clear which NT version you are using, since you didn't provide that information. There are some differences under W2k. Try looking here or here, for starters.

I think I now know what your problem is, and the source of the 'morphing' DLL... can you run Adaware again, and post the results log here so I can see something - Thanks!

HI,

Sorry I've been away for a while. Here is my Ad-aware results log. I still have the About:Blank changing homepage problem so any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
