bache89, welcome.

Please print this out and follow ALL these directions carefully.

This is a new CoolWebSearch (CWS) hijack infection and is hard to remove.

Note: Every time you reboot the files multiply and change names. This process is like exterminating cockroaches.

Please download the tool called about:buster from
http://www.downloads.subratam.org/AboutBuster.zip
or
http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4289.html

Unzip it to your desktop.

In WinME/XP turn off System Restore.
http://www.arnoldco.com/help/html/disable_restore.html

Double click aboutbuster.exe, click OK, click Start, then click OK.
This will scan your computer for the bad files and delete them.

Important: Create a folder on the C: drive called C:\HJT.
You can do this by going to My Computer (Windows key+e) then double click on C: then right click and select New then Folder and name it HJT.

Move HijackThis.exe into this folder as you do not want the HijackThis backup logs in the Temp folder that should be cleaned out periodically.

When you run HijackThis from C:\HJT folder by double clicking on it and have it "Fixed checked" it will create a backup file of modifications to use if restore is necessary.

Make sure 'show all files' is enabled:
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgen...=&osv=&osv_lvl=

Boot into Safe Mode by tapping F8 key repeatedly at bootup.
More detailed instructions here:
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgen...001052409420406

Delete if still present:
C:\WINDOWS\sysrx32.dll
C:\WINDOWS\ntpo.exe
<== files

Start HijackThis and tick the boxes next to all these, then close all browser and explorer windows, and tell HijackThis to "Fix checked" if still present.

Reboot and Install the prevention protection below and help your friends from being infected on the Internet.

Empty the Recycle Bin.

Enable System Restore after the infection is removed.

The Temp folders should be cleaned out periodically as installation programs and hijack programs leave a lot of junk there.
Index.dat Suite helps with this.
http://support.it-mate.co.uk/?mode=Products&p=index.datsuite

Insure that Index.dat Suite is Setup to empty the Temp folders especially
C:\Documents and Settings\{user}\Local Settings\Temp
then run the Find and create the run.bat and reboot to have it remove what it finds.

{user} is the Jud Bachelor User Account ID.
Removal of infections and prevention protection should be installed on ALL User Account IDS.

Download and install WinPatrol.
http://www.winpatrol.com

Browser settings for increased security:
http://bshagnasty.home.att.net/browsersettings.htm

Install IE-SPYAD then run the install.bat in the ie-spyad folder and SpywareBlaster then keep them up to date as today's Internet is full of nasty infections.
https://netfiles.uiuc.edu/ehowes/www/resource.htm#IESPYAD
http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

Install Windows Service Pack 2 and ALL Crtitical Updates.
