When I open up my browser (IE) after a few seconds, a popup will popup. In the past, I have seen "webrates" running and have uninstalled from Add/Remove Programs. Thanks for your help.

Hi Simple Man,
Welcome to BC! :thumbsup:


The HijackThis you have is outdated, and running from your Temp folder, which is not recommended.

Click My Computer, then C:\
In the menu bar, File->New->Folder.
That will create a folder named New Folder, which you can rename to "HJT" or "HijackThis". Now you have C:\HJT\ folder.

Now, download the latest version of HijackThis from here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/files/Merijn/HijackThis.zip and unzip it to your HJT folder.

You may want to print out these instructions so that they are easier to follow.

Posted Image Be sure your system is configured to show hidden files.

Posted Image Run HijackThis and put a check in the boxes next to the following:
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

O1 - Hosts: 12.129.205.209 search.netscape.com12.129.205.209 sitefinder.verisign.com

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {00320615-B6C2-40A6-8F99-F1C52D674FAD} - C:\WINDOWS\localNRD.dll

O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {2CDE1A7D-A478-4291-BF31-E1B4C16F92EB} - (no file)

Close all browsers and windows (except for HijackThis) and click Fix checked

Posted Image Reboot into Safe Mode.

Posted Image Find and delete the following files and folders in red (some may not be present):
C:\WINDOWS\localNRD.dll
C:\WINDOWS\System32\owsxgb.exe

Posted Image Reboot normally and post a new log here.

Hi Simple Man,

I recommend that you uninstall Weatherbug, unless you are using the paid-for version. The free version is adware but does not contain any spyware. Tropic Designs WeatherPulse is freeware with no ads and is available here: http://www.tropicdesigns.net/weatherpulse.html


Download LSPFix


Double-click to run
Select: (Advanced) "I know what I'm doing"
Select: "osmim.dll" (left pane)
Click the right arrow to bring it to REMOVE (right pane).
Then click the FINISH button. Restart your computer.

Restart HijackThis and put checks next to the following, close all browser windows (including this one) then click on 'Fix Checked':

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O1 - Hosts: 12.129.205.209 search.netscape.com12.129.205.209 sitefinder.verisign.com
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {00320615-B6C2-40A6-8F99-F1C52D674FAD} - C:\WINDOWS\localNRD.dll

O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {2CDE1A7D-A478-4291-BF31-E1B4C16F92EB} - (no file)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [kivypk] C:\WINDOWS\System32\owsxgb.exe

O16 - DPF: {15AD4789-CDB4-47E1-A9DA-992EE8E6BAD6} - 010e8e2c69b6760c019447ee1641cd70938325:23e58dabdfe8c5d6602b8bf1fcecd7ff" target=_blankhttp://public.windupdates.com/get_file.php...02b8bf1fcecd7ff

Make sure you have Set Windows to show Hidden Files & Folders, then reboot into safe mode then find and delete:


C:\WINDOWS\System32\owsxgb.exe <-------- Delete this file.

Reboot, then post a new HijackThis log and let us know how things are running.

Thanks Nirvana, I totally missed that O10! :thumbsup:

Simple Man,
Your log is clean, great job! Posted Image

Follow these steps to ensure that your system is protected from future attacks:
Download & install these programs:
IE-SPYAD <--adds a long list of sites and domains associated with known advertisers, marketers, and crapware pushers to the Restricted sites zone of Internet Explorer
Spyware Blaster <--Prevents the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests; blocks spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox; restricts the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.

These recommendations are based on veteran spyware fighter Tony Klein's now classic article, So how did I get infected in the first place? Check it out for even more information and other helpful programs to prevent future attacks.

I also highly recommend the information in Bleepingcomputer's own Simple steps to keep your computer secure!, which includes helpful hints and programs.

Visit Windows Update regularly. Make sure that you always have all the Critical Updates recommended for your Operating System and Internet Explorer. The first defense against infection is a properly patched OS.
