Hi Hoppyuk. Please post a complete HijackThis log so I can review it. Analyzer programs are prone to many mistakes and false information. To post a complete log please follow these directions:

Start HijackThis and click the Do a system scan and save a log button to perform a scan and create a log file. When the scan is complete, Notepad will open up with the log file in it. While in Notepad, press Ctrl-A to select all text and then Ctrl-C to copy the text to the clipboard.

POST the entire log in this thread using the Add Reply button. Click in the data-entry window and press Ctrl-V to paste the log into the window. Add any other comments which you believe might be helpful in our analysis. and click the Add Reply button.

I will review your log as quickly as I can.


DO NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES OR CLICK "FIX CHECKED" UNTIL WE CHECK THE LOG, AS SOME OF THE FILES ARE LEGIT AND VITAL TO THE FUNCTION OF YOUR COMPUTER

OT
I do not respond to PM's requesting help. That's what the forums are here for. Please use them so that others may benefit from your questions and the responses you receive.

Hi again Hoppyuk. After reviewing your log I see a few items that require our attention. Please proceed with the following steps in order.

Step #1

Start HijackThis and click the Scan button to perform a scan. Look for the following items and click in the checkbox in front of each item to select it:R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [CPQHotkeys] hotkeysvc.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [CPQHotkeys] hotkeysvc.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [CPQHotkeys] hotkeysvc.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\RunServices: [CPQHotkeys] hotkeysvc.exe
O15 - Trusted Zone: *.sony-europe.com
O15 - Trusted Zone: *.sonystyle-europe.com
O15 - Trusted Zone: *.vaio-link.com

Now close ALL open windows except HijackThis and click the Fix Checked button to finish the repair.

Step #2

We need to make sure all hidden files are showing so please:
  • Click Start.
  • Open My Computer.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  • Select the View tab.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
  • Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
  • Click Yes to confirm.
  • Click OK.
Find the following files/folders and delete them (don't worry if they are already gone):hotkeysvc.exe (search for this file and delete it - see the note below regarding searching in XP)
Windows XP's search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that Search system folders, Search hidden files and folders, and Search subfolders are checked.

Next, let's clean up the temporary folders:* Click Start
* Point to Programs
* Point to Accessories
* Point to System Tools
* Click Disk Cleanup
* Select the following items that are present and then click the OK button.* Temp Setup Files
* Downloaded Program Files
* Temp Internet Files
* Debug Dump Files
* Office Setup Files
* old chkdsk files
* Recycle Bin
* Temp Remote Desktop Files
* Setup Log Files
* Temp Files
* WebClient temp files
[/list]Step #3

OK. Reboot your computer normally, start HijackThis and perform a new scan. Post your new log file back here using the Add Reply button and I will review it when it comes in.

Hello Hoppyuk. As far as your log goes, I see no signs of viruses or malware at this time. It is clean. Congratulations! We have a couple of steps to perform to finish the cleanup but before we get to that let me ask what types of problems you are still encountering? Post back here with any specific problems and I'll take a look at them.

We have a couple of last steps to perform and then you're all set.

First, let's reset your hidden/system files and folders. System files are hidden for a reason and we don't want to have them openly available and susceptible to accidental deletion.* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading UNSELECT Show hidden files and folders.
* CHECK the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.
Next, let's clean your restore points and set a new one:

Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs from changing those files. This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected)1. Turn off System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
2. Restart your computer.

3. Turn ON System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
[/list]System Restore will now be active again.

Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programs: SpywareBlaster, SpywareGuard and IESpy-Ad. They will add 1000's of sites to your resticted zone and block some hijacks from happening.

You should also have a good firewall like ZoneAlarm or Kerio Personal Firewall (both are free) and a good anti-virus application like the one you are currently using. It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

To keep your system up to date and clean visit Windows Update monthly, run AdAware SE and Spybot Search & Destroy weekly, and be aware of what emails you open and websites you visit.

To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read this article by Tony Klien: So how did I get infected in the first place?

Have a safe and happy computing day!

My problem is as follows...

I can't log into most websites that require a username and password, so i cant access hotmail, .net, msn etc. I get error code 0x81000370 when i attempt to log onto msn messenger. I can get on through www.e-messenger.net . I have tried ALL of the availible soloutions on the net to this day. This includes re-registering parts of the registry, checkings for 128bit encryption, changing and checking internet settings and not one of the soloutions has worked.

Any help would be great, i was told clearing up this would work but sadly it hasnt!

Hi hoppyuk. How are you connected to the internet (dial-up, dsl, cable...). You are right in that there are many posts out there of people with the same problem (actually going back for a year or more). I'll post a few ideas and you can try them (or tell me if you have already tried them).

One thing that would be interesting to try is to set up a new user account on your computer and log in to that account. Make it a Power User or Administrator. If that works then at least we know that all of the software is present and registered properly.

Cheers.

This is going to sound like it's from left-field but completely uninstall all Symantec products. Use the Symantec directions and tools here:

http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/nav.n...001092114452606

Try your internet connection and programs. If all is well the reinstall your Symantec applications.

Post back with your results.

Cheers.

Did you download the complete installation? If so then you can reinstall that if you kept it. If you're like me you never throw anything away. Otherwise you can contact Symantec and explain that you have to uninstall and reinstall and they will let you redownload or send you a cd.

Cheers.
