I'm on windows 2k Pro, SP4, Explorer 6, SP1.

the problem im having is unknown as to how it started, my older brother was looking at some... 'sites' and now i have a casino popup, my homepage wont change from easy-search.biz, and i have this 'sexdial' that appears on my desktop every time the casino popup appears, some other odd tidbits too... when i search on google, it comes up with a 404 error, but with a (very bad) google logo saying its unknown on the server, also, unless i enter a website name and press ctrl+enter as apposed to just the url (google instead of www.google.com) it wont come up at all, and gives a 404 error.

i have ran Adaware, Spybot S&D (they both found some bits, and supposedly removed them, but with no avail), and Hijack this.

i've completely cleared my computer of its cookies, temp files, temp internet files, and ran both adaware and S&D again. it found stuff again, and again supposedly removed them, but again, to no avail. anyway, here is the Hijack This log:

oh yeah, it should be noted that IE was 5.5 when the problem occured.

i've ran housecall, but it found nothing, and CWShredder only got rid of one 'readme.txt' file :(

hmm.. odd.

i just got the Casino pop up again, and the 'sexdial' shortcut on my desktop, however, that usually prompted a change in the homepage too, but this time, it hasnt for whatever reason.

so, here's a summary:
i've done everything you guys have so far suggested
to that end, my homepage appears to no longer change
however, the casino popup, and the 'sexdial' shortcut still appear sporadically.

i've also ran Housecall, EzAntivirus, and !aVast antivirus programs, all found nothing.

the HJT log has also changed again. here it is:

also, another quick question, is hijacking illegal?

Currently no, at least not in the US.

However, there is legislation being developed at both state and federal levels which, if passed, would make some or all of the tactics used by spyware distributors illegal. Do a Google search on the following terms to find out more about what's going on and how you might be able to help:

spyware illegal

its definately gone, but i dont think i'll ever know how i got infected in the first place, since my brother was the one on the PC at the time of infection, he realised what he'd done and cleared the history =/

im gonna make attempts to protect myself from this sort of thing happening again anyway.

Cheers Caper.
