Step 1:

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

Create new folder on your hard drive called c:\regbackup.

Step 2:

Run Registrar Lite again enter HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows into the address field and press enter. On the left side of the screen the Windows key should be selected and highlighted purple.

With the Windows key highlighted click on the File menu, and the click on export and save them in the following formats:


First save it with the name winkey.reg
Save it in the location c:\regbackup
Make the save type regedit4 .reg type and then press the save button.

Then click on file export again, and this time name it Winkey.hiv
Save it in the location c:\regbackup
Change the type to regetd32/WinAPI *hiv *dat files and press the save button.

When both files/backups are successfully saved, right-click on the highlighted Windows key and rename it to Windows 1.

Step 3:

With Windows1 highlighted, look in the right section and double-click on AppInit and clear the data in the value field (there may not be anything there).

Rename Windows1 back to Windows and exit the program.

Reboot your computer.

Step 4:

When you are back at your desktop, navigate to the c:\regback folder. Double-click on the winkey.reg file. When it prompt if you would like to import/merge the data press the Yes button.

Then run Registrar Lite again, go to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows key again as done above. While the Windows key is selected (highlighted purple/blue) in the left window, click on File and them Import.

Browse to c:\regback and select the winkey.hiv file that we created earlier. When it asks if you would like to merge, say yes/ok.

Step 5:


Then double-click on the appinit_dlls key again and clear the value again by double click on appinit_dlls and making sure there is nothing in the values field.


Step 6:

Now download and run CWShredder. You can download the program from the following locations:

CWShredder Download Site

After you download the program, unzip it into a directory. Make sure all browser windows are closed and double click on the cwshredder.exe to start the program. When the program is loaded click on the "Check for Update" button, and if it finds an new version it will download it. You should then double click on cwshredder.exe again and click on the "FIX" button (not the "Scan only" button) and let it scan your computer.

A tutorial that goes over this process step by step can be found here:

How to remove CoolWebSearch with CWShredder

When that is completed, please download the latest version of Ad-Aware from the following location:

Ad-aware

Make sure you update the program before you scan with it. A tutorial on using ad-aware can be found below:

AD-AWARE - Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware & Hijackers from Your Computer.

When that is completed post a new hijackthis log
