Hi everyone, I'm new to the website and need a bit of help with fully removing some problems from my comp.

I've already downloaded and run Ad-Aware SE Personal, and partially removed MyWebSearch but when I try to uninstall "My Search Bar" a window comes up with the title "res://C:\PROGRA~1\MyWay\mybar\1.bin\mybar.dll\101" and i cannot proceed to uninstall because this window is blank.

I suspect that MyWebSearch isnt the only problem with my computer though.

Thanks for any help.

Platform: Windows XP SP1 (WinNT 5.01.2600)
MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP1 (6.00.2800.1106)

As far as I know the first log I put on here was unedited, but I've followed your instructions to a tee.

Thanks

Hi Hit the road. Yes, that looks better. There was some verison information missing from the beginning of the log but it is complete now.

Alright, after reviewing your log I see a few items that require our attention. Please print these directions and then proceed with the following steps in order.

Step #1

Launch Notepad, and copy/paste the text in the quotebox below into the new document. Save it to your desktop as smitfix.reg :

Close Notepad.

Step #2

Remove installed programs using Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel:
  • Click Start.
  • Click Control Panel.
  • Double-click Add or Remove Programs.
  • Look in the Currently installed programs box for each program listed below and if it is there:
  • Click on it to select it.
  • Click Change (or Change/Remove) button.
  • If you are prompted to confirm the removal of the program, click Yes.
Security IGuard
Virtual Maid
Search Maid

Download Hoster.zip and unzip it to your desktop. Do not run it yet.

Download DelDomains.zip and unzip it to your desktop. We will use this later on.

Step #3

Download Pocket Killbox and unzip it to your desktop.

Double-click on KillBox.exe to launch the program.
  • Highlight the lines below and press the Ctrl key and the C key at the same time to copy them to the clipboard:
    • C:\wp.exe
      C:\wp.bmp
      C:\bsw.exe
      c:\counter.cab
      C:\Windows\sites.ini
      C:\Windows\popuper.exe
      C:\Windows\System32\wldr.dll
      C:\Windows\System32\helper.exe
      C:\Windows\System32\intmon.exe
      C:\Windows\System32\shnlog.exe
      C:\Windows\System32\intmonp.exe
      C:\Windows\System32\msmsgs.exe
      C:\Windows\system32\msole32.exe
      C:\WINDOWS\System32\hpB293.tmp
      C:\Windows\System32\ole32vbs.exe
      C:\WINDOWS\System32\mf3216.exe
      C:\WINDOWS\System32\inetres.exe
  • Now go to the Killbox application and click on the File menu and then the Paste from Clipboard menu item. In the Full Path of File to Delete box you should see the first file. If you dropdown that box you should see the rest of them. Make sure that they are all there.
  • Click on the Delete on Reboot option and then click on the red circle with a white 'X' in to to delete the files. Killbox will tell you that all listed files will be deleted on next reboot, click YES. When it asks if you would like to Reboot now, click YES. If you get a "PendingFileRenameOperations Registry Data has been Removed by External Process!" message then just restart manually.
You system will reboot now. Reboot into Safe Mode by:

Start in Safe Mode Using the F8 method:
  • Restart the computer.
  • As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the boot menu appears.
  • Use the arrow keys to select the Safe Mode menu item.
  • Press the Enter key.
Step #4

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 file extensions for known types option.
  • 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):C:\Program Files\Search Maid\ <--folder
C:\Program Files\Virtual Maid\ <--folder
C:\Windows\System32\Log Files\ <--folder
C:\Program Files\Security IGuard\ <--folder
C:\Program Files\MyWay\ <--folder
C:\Program Files\Rmldmp\ <--folder
C:\Program Files\ShopperReports\ <--folder

Step #5

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:R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = about:blank
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = http://www.updatesearches.com/search.php?qq=%1
