I've been trying for 2 days to identify, research, and finally eliminate the trojan/virus that has infected my XPSP2 computer.

Things I've tried so far:
NOD32 antivirus=no hits
SuperAntiSpyware=found tracking coookies and cleaned.
CCleaner=cleaned out temp files and bad registry entries
MalwareBytes Antimalware=found lots of stuff and it says it cleared everything.

These are the symptoms.
Affects all my installed browsers Firefox(latest) IE7, and Opera

Sometimes it will allow the typing in of a web page without generating another window to go to a rogue site.

When using a search engine, any result clicked will either be redirected to bogus commercial site or the browser will report that the connect failed to requested website.

Some success can be had if you copy and paste the link manually, but sometimes it still fails to load.

there are a half dozen or so websites it redirects you to, and one is an IP address of 77.91.229.143

Doesn't seem to affect any other applications that use the net such as email clients.

Here is my hijackthis log.

Hello chromeops

Welcome to the Bleeping Computer Malware Removal Forum,

I know that being infected with this garbage can be frustrating, but by running programs on your own and me not having access to the logs are basically erasing clues as to what your infected with. It's best to just bite the bullet and post and wait for a reply.

Open HijackThis > Do a System Scan Only, close your browser and all open windows including this one, the only program or window you should have open is HijackThis, check the following entries and click on Fix Checked.

O20 - AppInit_DLLs: fsfpnx.dll
O20 - Winlogon Notify: iifgHaxu - C:\WINDOWS\





Download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download.
It must be saved directly to your desktop.



1. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
  • Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan.
  • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
  • Remember to re enable the protection again afterwards before connecting to the net

2. Close any open browsers and make sure you are disconnected from the net. Unplug the cable if need be before running combofix.
  • IF you have not already done so Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet when it starts.
  • If there is no internet connection when Combofix has completely finished then restart your computer to restore back the connections.
3. Now double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
When finished, it will produce a report for you.
Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review

Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall or freeze.
