Hello,

I've been reading many of the threads to rid my computer of about:blank, in an effort to save you pro's some time, but there's still something in my system. I've run adware, cwshredder, spybot and even loaded spyguard, which has helped to keep about:blank from changing my homepage. Spyguard keeps poping up letting me know that something is changing my homepage and then lets me choose to revert back to my old settings. Here is my hijackthis log (note:i've already deleted some stuff, which was risky, but I don't think anything harmfull (R0, 1, 3))

Maybe you got a trojan or virus; try downloading a free trial of trojanhunter here and running an anti-virus scan of trend micro here
Afterwards put HJT into C:\HJT\ and go to safe mode and then try running all anti-spyware again. look here for on how to go to safe mode and afterwards post another HJT log.

You also should show a log without removing from it so that we can see what was/is there. Reboot, rescan with HJT & post that log plz.

Hello and thank you for the reply.

I'll start in order w/YZK, I tried to load trojanhunter @ trend micro, but I ran into a problem I've been having periodically. Sometimes when I'm surfing the web or rebooting, Explorer interrupts the session with a dialog box (below) and then is forced to shutdown explorer. This has all started just recently. Two examples are as follows:

#1 - Every time I reboot, I get a dialog box from explorer saying "Itouch application has encountered a problem and needs to close...." It then asks me to "send an error report" or "don't send". I think this may be due to me foolishly removing stuff with Hijackthis. (Note: below I have pasted an HJT log that I did prior to my foolishness (didn't heed the warnings :sad: )

#2 - Recently, when i'm surfing, or in the case of downloading (like with trojanhunter), I get a dialog box from explorer "Internet Explorer Encountered a problem and needs to close - Send error report - Don't send".

So, I wasn't able to run trojanhunter. However, I did run all the spyware programs (CWshredder, Adware, AdwareAway) in Safemode and found nothing.

Crunchie...you big dog!

I did what you said. Below is a HJT log from before I removed stuff and also a log after I just rebooted and scanned everything under safemode:

Thanks again Super Heros...I don't know what I would do w/o you!!!

LOG #1 - BEFORE ME REMOVING STUFF FROM HJT AS WELL AS RUNNING SOME OF CRUNCHIES RECOMMENDED PROGRAMS FROM OTHER THREADS:

Funny (not really), when I sent my above reply, spy guard alerted me that my homepage was being changed, as well as a search toolbar. I seems that these damn programs hitch on to info being sent by me to other sites. Just thought i'd mention it.

and btw, where HJT is located it leaves behind a backup of the removal that you've done. The only problem is that it is difficult to locate in the temp folder.. so thats why we say that you need to put it in c:\HJT\

Hi Crunchie/Yzk

I put hjt in c:. I'm wondering if those backup files that are left can cause problems? If so, I may have some from when I deleted the some stuff before I moved it.

Anyway, I did everything I was told up to this point. The problem still exists. Something in my system keeps reloading. Plz see the hjt report below:

Hello again.

Another thing. Spywareguard keeps stopping my home page from being changed. It also keeps warning me that a BHO is being added to my system. It gives me a series of numbers and letters in {}. File Location: C:WINDOWS\System32\igniica.dll. I looked at properties for the dll and it is an unknown program. Could this be the cause or part of the problem?

Please disable spywareguard for the time being, reboot then post a fresh log. It is preventing some of the entries from loading.

Well, I turned off Spywareguard, rebooted in safe mode, ran my adware programs, with system restore disabled, then rebooted...it's back. As you can see below.

I'm starting to feel like finding the folks who do this stuff and....well you know. :evil:

Download and install APM from: http://www.diamondcs.com.au/index.php?page=apm

Close all windows except HijackThis and fix the lines above.

In the upper window of APM select explorer.exe
In the lower window find and rightclick the BHO from the HijackThis log
Select Unload DLL and click OK on the prompts that follow.

Reboot and scan with AdAware to remove the txt and html protocol association.

HI,

Did what you said, downloded APM, fixed the lines w/HJT, tried to find the BHO from the HJT log, but couldn't find it. It definitely wasn't there.

Didn't run the rest of the programs, since I couldn't complete the steps. What should I do next???

0

Clarification. I couldn't find the BHO in APM, I was able to delete it in HJT.

0

Another member managed to find the rogue dll by going to *iexplore.exe* in APM & unloading it from there. Perhaps this is the case for you. Try it out & see.
