Hi,
My Internet Explorer has been taken over by aliens and seems to go wherever it
wants to when I do a search in google. Also, the toolbars have disappeared and I can't
seem to get them back. Finally, I can't seem to do a windows update.
Here is my Hijack This log.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.
Don

Download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite http://www.ewido.net/en/download/ (W2K/XP Only)
· Install ewido.
· During the installation, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".
· Launch ewido
· It will prompt you to update click the OK button and it will go to the main screen
· On the left side of the main screen click update
· Click on Start and let it update.
· DO NOT run a scan yet. You will do that later in safe mode.

Restart your computer into safe mode now. Perform the following steps in safe mode:
(Start tapping F8 at the first black screen after power up)

Run Ewido:
· Click on scanner
· Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
· During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK
· When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
· Save the report to your C: Drive
This will take some time to run!
Boot to normal mode

Fix these with HJT – mark them, close IE, click fix checked

DownLoad http://www.downloads.subratam.org/KillBox.zip

Restart your computer into safe mode now. (Tapping F8 at the first black screen) Perform the following steps in safe mode:

Double-click on Killbox.exe to run it. Now put a tick by Standard File Kill. In the "Full Path of File to Delete" box, copy and paste each of the following lines one at a time then click on the button that has the red circle with the X in the middle after you enter each file. It will ask for confimation to delete the file. Click Yes. Continue with that same procedure until you have copied and pasted all of these in the "Paste Full Path of File to Delete" box.

C:\WINNT\system32\dmdmu.exe

Note: It is possible that Killbox will tell you that one or more files do not exist. If that happens, just continue on with all the files. Be sure you don't miss any.

Now paste these folders in and then make sure Deltree is checked before hitting the red x – deltree will not show until a folder is copied into the line



START – RUN – type in %temp% OK - Edit – Select all – File – Delete
Delete everything in the C:\Windows\Temp folder or C:\WINNT\temp
Empty the recycle bin
Boot and post a new log from normal NOT safe mode – Post the Ewido log

Please give feedback on what worked/didn’t work and the current status of your system

Thanks for your help. You have fixed the problem with Internet Explorer. It no longer redirects my web searches.
The only problem I am still having is that I can't get the Windows Updates.

Here is my HJT log:

Log is fine

Are you using IE to get there

Click Start > Run > and type in:

services.msc

Click OK.

In the services window find Automatic Updates.
Rightclick and choose "Properties". On the "General" tab under "Service Status" click the "Start" button to start the service. Beside "Startup Type" in the dropdown menu select "Automatic". Click Apply then OK. Exit the Services utility.

Restart your computer.

Now try Windows update.

Still can't get Windows Updates. I wonder if some files were corrupted by the Spyware.
