Hi! I have seen some similar posts to mine, so I hope that you can help me. we have run Spybot, SpySweeper, and Ad-aware, which seems to take care of the problem. Every time we restart the computer, we keep getting a passthrough using IE explorer, it is search200.com/passthrough/etc.... I did a scan using hijack this, and I am attaching the log.

As a side note, we've been trying to get rid of stuff using hijack this for the last 4 weeks, with no success. Is there something more we need to do with some of these entries?

THANKS!

I want you to fix some of those entries. Please do the following:

Please make sure that you can view all hidden files. Instructions on how to do this can be found here:

How to see hidden files in Windows

Run Hijackthis again, click scan, and Put a checkmark next to each of these. Then click the Fix button

Disable System Restore. You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:

Managing Windows Millenium System Restore
or

Windows XP System Restore Guide

Renable system restore with instructions from tutorial above

Reboot your computer to go back to normal mode and post a new log.

Hi!

I did exactly what you said, and here is my new log. I will also mention that after I posted this, I went to add/remove programs, and I found one that said Windows Searching. I uninstalled that, ran hijack this, and it took away the search200 passthrough. Then I saw your posting, and followed your instructions for the other entries you mentioned I should fix. I looked for hidden files, and followed your instructions regarding system restore and rebooting. I think I have had success! THANKS! we've been trying to get rid of this for 4 weeks with no luck.

I do have a question: Do you know HOW ON EARTH I got this thing search200.com? There are 4 users of this computer; I went away on vacation, and when I came back the other users told me this "thing" was now on our browser. All them of them say they don't remember downloading anything weird. Just wondering, so I can make sure to tell them how to be careful in the future.

You are clean now. You may have received this infection through improperly configured security settings on your browser or a new installation of a program.

I would advise you install spywareblaster and follow the directions in the tutorial in our tutorials section.
