Hey Guys,

I was infected with the HSA Hijack a few weeks ago, followed your advice and sucessfully removed it. On Friday I left my computer on and was infected with another Hijack, that seems to incorporate aspects of other hijacks, but doesnt manifest itself in the same way as the HSA. Initially it set my homepage to a link containing britneynude etc... and installed mass amounts of malware including Media Pass. It has now manifested to the point where I can not log into Windows normally, I can only boot up in Safe Mode, and it is even present in Safe Mode. I have attempted to remove it with Hijack This, msconfig, Ad Aware, Ad Buster, and Trend Micro (trend micro identifies the infected files, but refuses to show me the log and fix the problems) but it still reloads every time I start up. I was sucessfull in starting up normally once, but within seconds it had downloaded Media Pass, mommableep.exe, csrs.exe, syswork.exe, etc and several other programs.

I can no longer download files from the internet, only view pages, and taskmonitor refuses does not respond. I want to get the FAV antivirus software, but again, I can't download anything, IE Explorer just freezes up. I may have removed something iportant inadvertantly, but if anyone could help I would appreciate it.

Here is my Hijack This log, unfortunately I have a powerpoint presentation to give tomorow and porn pop ups, and internet gambling arent in the curriculum.

Thanks for the help, here is the log:

After running panda, I rebooted Windows normally, which worked but immediately started downloading trojans and malware once again. Thought it might help, due to info on specific worms and trojans...

Hi Dyan,

Sorry for the delay. I found where you have a log posted at Castle Cops.

Please post back to that thread that you are getting help elsewhere. HJT logs are very time consuming and there are a massive amount of them on the net, so it will be a waste of someone's time to work on a log only to be told the problem has been solved. It also causes confusion.

Your log over there is also a bit different. Please post a new one for me to review.

From the fact that you ran a Panda scan I'm assuming that you are on DSL and booting to Safe Mode with networking? Are you not able to download in safe mode? I would like for you to try again. Go to the following page and try downloading the latest version of HijackThis 1.99.1 from the link in the tutorial:
How to post a HijackThis Log

Wehther successful or not, please do this:

In safe mode, run Disk Cleanup. Type cleanmgr in the run box by going to Start>Run. Allow it to clean up all options that are checked and be sure that these three are:
Temporary Files
Temporary Internet Files
Recycle Bin

Then try downloading again.

Also while in safe mode type the following bold text in the Run box and hit Enter:

Look for the file taskmgr.exe Rename the file taskmgr.com Now doubleclick to open taskmgr.com Does Task Manager open?

Let me know. In any event, post a fresh HijackThis log, in Normal Mode if possible. Open msconfig and set it for Normal startup under the general tab. Let me know if that helps and we need to see all startups anyway so we will know what all needs to be removed.

The thing about people

is they change

when they walk away.--Mipso
