Well, I typed the whole description of my problems, and when I tried to close a popup that came up, I quickly hit [Alt]-[F4] to close it, and I accidentally closed the wrong window. Ugh.

Anyway, I seem to have some extremely persistent variation of CWS, that has recently updated. Current indications of my problem are: apparently randomly generated .dll in my windows\system32 directory, se.dll appearing in two temp directories, (cannot delete any of these files without moving/rebooting), my popup blocker is turned off, receiving advertisement popups even when the popup blocker is on, a registry entry that says rundll32 C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\se.dll,DllInstall under the value sp, and a reoccurring se entry in my startup section of msconfig.

I run Ad-Aware regularly, and have also run CWShredder (began crashing, so I quit using it), SpySweeper, and have NAV and Microsoft's AntiSpyware Bet resident at all times. When the problem occurs, these softwares seem to recognize it, but they cannot seem to rid my PC of what is allowing the trojan/virus/whatever-it-is to keep happening/updating.

My next step is going to be to write zeroes to my HDD, which I really don't want to do. Ughx2.

Finally, this is my first time using this, or anything like it, but I've seen a lot of other people putting up the HijackThis file, so I'll do it, just in case it helps. Please let me know if I did everything correctly. Thanks.

Hello trex,

You have some nasty CWS malware on your computer. :thumbsup: Not to worry, we will soon have it off. :flowers:

****************************************************

How to Reboot into Safe Mode
tap F8 key during reboot, until the boot menu appears...use the arrow keys to choose "Safe Mode" from the menu......,then press the "Enter" key.



Please boot into Safe Mode and select the following with HijackThis.
With all windows (including this one!) closed (close browser/explorer windows), please select "fix.

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = about:blank
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = res://C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\se.dll/sp.html
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = about:blank
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = about:blank
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {8A13781D-6B5E-4BFC-AC09-917AF6D430AB} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\ece.dll (file missing)
O3 - Toolbar: flaw safe - {79A9D8EE-CD70-5D9E-B65D-0718E8E06B61} - C:\PROGRA~1\SLOWDE~1\Htm Amen.dll (file missing)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [sp] rundll32 C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\se.dll,DllInstall


****************************************************

Next, we're going on a file hunt.
Go to My Computer and double-click C.
Go to the Tools menu and select 'Folder Options'.
On the 'View' tab select 'show hidden files and folders' and deselect (uncheck) 'hide protected operating system files (recommended)'.

Find and delete each of the following. If you can't delete an item, right-click it and click properties. Make sure 'read-only' is unchecked.
If you still can't delete something, right-click it and rename it to a random word. Then drag the item to a different location. Try deleting it now. If you still can't, be sure to let me know.

Delete the following files/folders in bold:
C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\se.dll <==file
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ece.dll <==file
C:\PROGRA~1\SLOWDE~1\ <==folder
C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\se.dll <==file

****************************************************
Let empty the temp files:

Download CCleaner and install it. (default location is best).
Select the Windows Tab, Run CCleaner ,(click Run Cleaner (bottom right) then, when it finishes scanning click Exit.)
When you see "Complete" on the top line, it's done. It's very fast.

****************************************************

Finally, reboot and post a new Hijackthis log, and tell me how your computer is running.
