O11 - Options group: [INTERNATIONAL] International* Hi all, just wondering if anyone was familiar with this file?? the people who helped me with my HJT log a couple weeks ago said it was from IE7 and not to worry about it or delete it. However I read in a HJT log post that it should be deleted.

any help would be appreciated

Was it at this site?

If you have an 011 entry that means there is an added group to your Internet Options - Advanced choices. To see these open Internet Explorer and go to:

Tools > Internet Options > Advanced tab

There are several groups of options listed there: Accessability, Browsing, etc. Apparently you have an extra group named International.

According to Merijn (the creators of HiJackThis) there is only one known malware that adds an entry to this area (see THIS), however new forms of malware are created daily. And I can't check this against IE7 because that is not the version I have.

Hi albert, I found it under international, thanks for your directions. Yes the HJT log is at this site, but if its just added internet options it should be no problem for HJT to fix it, i think LOL. Still no clue what it does but life goes on. thanks very much for your help

The primary hijacker of concern in this options group is CommonName, a browser hijacker that installs an unwanted toolbar into Internet Explorer which displays links to paid sponsorsí websites as well as a search textbox. It also searches for terms that you type into the Address bar or within selected search engines and then hijacks your request by directing you to a sponsored website. CommonName is often bundled with file sharing software.
