Hi, hope you can help, my Laptop, a Dell Inspiron running Vista 32 Home seems to be infected, I have run AVG, Adaware and Malwarebytes but can't seem to get rid of the problem. I have tried using alterantive browsers to IE, I have tried Chrome and Firefox. Whenever I am using the browsers, in addition to the "EGhost_Reg_Fail" message in the blue bar at the top of the screen, my browser often attempts to redirect me to other search engines such as "Jump". I have downloaded hijackthis and already deleted the command within which EGhost_Reg_Fail appears and the problem still persists. Below is a copy of the current log following a scan with hijackthis.

Any clues in respect of what else I need to do or which further commands I need to delete with hijackthis would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hello Flylife and welcome to BC forums.
First, make sure you have saved all your work before you begin, and close your open apps.

Step 1
1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. Click "Tools," and then click "Internet Options."
3. Click "Connections," and then click "LAN Settings."
4. Make sure the check boxes for "Automatically detect settings" and "Use automatic configuration script" are not selected.
5. Apply changes & OK

Step 2
1. Go >> Here << and download ERUNT
(ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) is a free program that allows you to keep a complete backup of your registry and restore it when needed.)
2. Install ERUNT by following the prompts
(use the default install settings but say no to the portion that asks you to add ERUNT to the start-up folder, if you like you can enable this option later)
3. Start ERUNT
(either by double clicking on the desktop icon or choosing to start the program at the end of the setup)
4. Choose a location for the backup
(the default location is C:\WINDOWS\ERDNT which is acceptable).
5. Make sure that at least the first two check boxes are ticked
6. Press OK
7. Press YES to create the folder.

Step 3
Show all files:
  • Click the Start button, and then click Computer.
  • On the Organize menu, click Folder and Search Options.
  • Click the View tab.
  • Locate and uncheck Hide file extensions for known file types.
  • Locate and uncheck Hide protected operating system files (Recommended).
  • Locate and click Show hidden files and folders.
  • Click Apply > OK.


Step 4
Download TFC by OldTimer and SAVE it to your desktop
  • Double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista or Windows 7, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
  • Click the Start button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.


Step 5
Note: If using Firefox right-click on any download links and choose Save As
Save both files to the same place ---- the Desktop.

Please download OTH and SAVE to the Desktop

Please download OTL and SAVE to the Desktop

Double click the OTH file to run it and click Kill All Processes, your desktop will go blank.
IF you are running Vista or Windows 7, then do a Right-click on OTH and select Run As Administrator to start.



Once OTH has started, click on Start OTL. OTL will now start.
  • Do the following in OTL:
  • In the lower right corner, checkmark "LOP Check" and checkmark "Purity Check".
  • Now click Run Scan at Top left and let the program run uninterrupted. It will take about 4 minutes.
  • When the scan completes, it will open two Notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
  • Back in OTH:
    Click the Internet Explorer button. Go to this forum & login & return to this topic.
    Copy & Paste these logs into your reply here.
  • After you are all done, press Reboot to start your system fresh.
