Hi All

I'm having some problems with IE 6 and easy-search.biz being set as my homepage. I have run ad-aware and spybot and neither appears to be removing it. Removing the registry entries found by ad-aware and rebooting still doesn't help, and CW Shredder has found no problems.

Any help would be appreciated.

You are infected with a variant of the CoolWebSearch.

Download CWShredder from the below link and unzip it into a directory. Start CWShredder and click on the FIx button to have it remove all CWS infections it finds.

Download CWShredder from one of the following sites:

CWShredder Download Site #1

or

CWShredder Download Site #2


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.

To get the best results it is recommended that you run it in safe mode. Reboot windows and press F8 at boot/windows startup, usually right after the beep. Then select safe mode.

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

How to remove CoolWebSearch with CWShredder

Once that is completed you should follow these steps in order to clean your computer of Malware which can include Viruses, Trojans, Worms, Spyware, Hijackers and Dialers

Step 1:
Download Spybot and Adaware from the following locations and install them. You should run both programs and clean up what it finds. This is to gaurantee that you find the most malware you can installed on your computer.

Before running the scans on both programs, it is mandatory that you update the programs. There are update options in each program when you run them.

Spybot

Ad-aware

If you would like to learn more about how to use these two programs with the proper settings you can read the tutorials below:

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

Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware from Your Computer.


When you scan with both programs, fix everything that it finds.

When you are done with the scan and fixing the items. Please continue with the next step.

Step 2:

It is important that you run Spybot and Adaware before you proceed with this step. Fixing enties with Hijackthis may leave behind unwanted files on your computer if the previous step was not done first.

Create a directory on your hardrive to save HijackThis.exe. A directory like c:\hijackthis. If you do not do this, you will not be able to use the backup/restore features.

Download HijackThis from:

HijackThis Download Site #1

or

HijackThis Download Site #2

Save this file into the directory you made previously and then run the program. Click on the Scan button and when it is finished click on the Save Log button. A Notepad window will open with the contents of this log. Click on Edit then click on Select all. Then click on Edit and then Click on Copy.

Create a reply to this post, and right click in message area and select paste to paste the log into the post.

Someone will reply to you after reading this post. DO NOT fix any entries unless you understand what you are doing.

Hi

Thanks for your help, however everthing you have suggested I have already done and have now re-done and it still hasn't helped. It's actually very annoying, as many of the websites I wish to go to get an error saying that the server isn't found, which is a lie. For example, coming to bleepingcomputer.com all of the icons/pictures are missing and clicking on links usually gives me a google message that the page can't be found, although with some perserviance I eventually get back to this forum discussion. I also think that when I initially log on to the web that i'm prevented from accessing web pages and that i have to re-launch IE6.

Do you have any other suggestions as to what I could do? Is their anything in the original log file that I posted that seems odd? CWShredder says it restores 9 internet pages, but it doesn't seem to do much, also the 'check for updates' seems to stop at the 'Fetching CWShredder update information from spywareinfo.com...', it never finds an updates. I have run miniremoval coolwebsearch smartkiller.exe but this has detected nothing. The same registry entries are reappearing in Ad-aware once the pc is rebooted or IE6 is relaunched.

Many Thanks

Alie

Patience...I have done many many of these logs and there is a certain order of steps that should, and actually must, be taken before we manually remove items. Reboot your computer and post a new hijackthis log

Thanks for your help with this, seems like alot of people are having problems looking at the various posts. I have re-run the programs and the log file appears to be the same. Is there any anti-virus software which you feel might help the problem?

I want you to fix some of those entries. Please do the following:

Please make sure that you can view all hidden files. Instructions on how to do this can be found here:

Run Hijackthis again, click scan, and Put a checkmark next to each of these. Then click the Fix button

Reboot your computer to go back to normal mode and post a new log.
