Ok. We need to try that once more now that I have seen the updated log file. Make sure that Adaware is fully updated first.

Unzip HJT into it's own permanent folder before doing anything in order for it to create backups. (Not a temporary folder or directly on the desktop (in a folder on the desktop is fine) & not directly on your hard drive). Close all (browser) windows & rescan with hijackthis. When the scan is finished place a check in the box to the left of the following entries & click 'fix checked' :

O18 - Filter: text/plain - {A3F8BFB3-CF46-40DD-9007-EC073512E9F0} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\fpnj.dll

Boot up in safe mode.

Run about:buster, click OK, Start, and OK again to start the scan. Let it scan and fix everything it finds.

Still in safe mode, do a full system scan with Adaware. When the scan is finished select *next* & place a check in the boxes to the left of what is found & click *next* again. Let it delete those entries.

Reboot your computer in normal mode. Post the log from about:buster & a new one from HJT.

ok.. well about buster didnt help again... it had the same thing.. "error removing fpnj.dll" and then i used adaware... which found 60 files ... which most was cws stuff... and then i just wanted to see what hijack this found... (my hijak this location is C:ProgramFiles\HijackThis\Hijackthis.exe) and it had all the same stuff as my previous log... so i fix checked all of those... then i went to C:Windows\system32 and i went to fpnj.dll and i changed the file to fpnj.doc and i read it... most of it was squares with no letters.. so then i put it to the recycle bin... looks like the virus is out now... so i dont know which step fixed it or if it all fixed it.. ill keep u updated to see if it comes back.. here is my new hjt log:

Click here to download and install Registrar Lite. Install, run, copy and paste this line to reglite's address bar:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\\AppInit_DLLs

and hit the "go" tab. Find: "Appinit_Dlls" value on the right side panel, DoubleClick, copy and post here the information in the 'Value' field.

C:\WINDOWS\System32\hlpmidb.dll and i looked for it under that.. and i searched the entire computer for that file.. but it didnt find it

C:\WINDOWS\System32\hlpmidb.dll and i looked for it under that.. and i searched the entire computer for that file.. but it didnt find it

Did you follow Crunchies instructions?

You need to download and install Registrar Lite. Then run it, and copy and paste this line into reglite's address bar:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\\AppInit_DLLs

Hit the "go" tab. Find: "Appinit_Dlls" value on the right side panel, Double Click (you have to double-click to get the info), then copy and post the information in the 'Value' field.

This fix worked for me, hopefully it will for you too. Apparently this dll is not visible until you run reglite -- this will make it visible so it can then be deleted. Crunchie will give you the rest of the instructions after you post the info in the Value field of reglite. Good luck!

i did post the value.. that was what the value was... what am i suppose to do with it?

0

am i suppose to like... do that in the reglite thing then go to windowns sys 32?

i did post the value.. that was what the value was... what am i suppose to do with it?

Oops, sorry, my mistake. I thought you were just saying you looked for it there, not that that was the actual value. I actually thought Crunchie would get back to you on this, but since he hasn't I've copied the instructions he gave me and put them below. The only thing I changed is your dll file name. This fix worked for me, so hopefully it will for you as well:

-Run reglite : type--
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Windows\\AppInit_DLLs into the address bar, or expand the same key.

-Rename the Folder Windows
to NotWindows (highlighted as a purple folder in the left hand pane of reglite).

-Click "AppInit_DLLs" again and clear the data value:
C:\WINDOWS\System32\hlpmidb.dll <- delete this line , click 'Apply' and 'ok' to set.

-Then, rename the NotWindows folder back to its original name, Windows

-Restart computer

Now check the system32 folder, the culprit dll (hlpmidb.dll) should now be visible.

If it is, delete it. If all goes well, your problem should be gone!

When this happend to me what I did was started my computer in safe mode ran ad-aware
SE and spybot (that will get rid of it) to keep it form comeing back is simple fun windows update thats what I did and i have not had a problem seace.
