Hi,

The forums are really busy, that explains why logs get behind. We start with the oldest logs first. If you still need some help, please start with posting a new hijackthislog in this thread. Don't start with a new thread.
Then I'll take a look. :thumbsup:

Still having problems, the tools, internet options, homepage is defaulted to ??????????? and can't be reset.
Does the highjack this log have any bad guys that should be dealt with, I have done spy ware checks and virus checks to no avail, have been through the microsoft analysis chart all points and no result.

Hi, can you post a new hijackthislog please? because things may be changed in it since your last log.
Then we can deal with it.

By the way, I also recommend you uninstall Adaware Pro temporary, because the Adwatch present in it will interfere otherwise.
You can reinstall it afterwards when your problem is solved.

Hello,

Ok, I see Adwatch not running in your processes anymore, but I do see two other programs running which watch your startpage and will prevent it being changed.

Windows Defender:
To turn real-time protection off
Open Windows Defender. (Click Start, click Programs, and then click Windows Defender.)
Click Tools, and then click General Settings.
Under Real-time protection options, Uncheck the Turn on real-time protection (recommended) check box.
Then click Save.

Also disable Spywaredoctor.

* Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch =
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [KernelFaultCheck] %systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -k


* Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.
Make sure your Internet Explorer is closed when you click Fix Checked!

After checking and fixing the entries and you enable these scanners again, make sure they don't block the changes again. So if they give an alert, allow the changes instead of blocking them.

Let me know if that solved the problem.

no alerts and problem still there, I am going to go to Safe Mode and run some of the checks there, but still , IE seems to be missing from add and remove and the system won't allow me to down load a new addition.
Thanks for your help so far i find this whole site extremely helpful and informative.

You can't just uninstall IE and I actually not suggest you do this though..

One thing is for sure, a third party software /real time scanner present on your system prevents the changes being made to your startpage.
Try to add a new startpage in safe mode and let me know if that works.

Let me know. :thumbsup:
What you are experiencing happens with a lot of other people. The real time scanners running in the background prevent EVERY modification of the startpage being made, even whe you want to modify it yourself. Especially Adwatch can be very stubborn here... even when disabled during the modification.

Nothing worked in safe mode, I downloaded some scanners to try and fix the problem they don't seem to have done any thing other than what they are supposed to, and i have been running adaware for along time now. When I access the internet through msnmessenger it comes up with my normal start page but still wont allow homepage reset, The IE shortcut just won't work and sends an error message then links to the crash analysis site with alot of stuff about malware and fixes but nothing has worked.

BFF, I guess you don't really read my replies. You don't have to download and install additional scanners, because they won't solve it, on the contrary, they are just preventing the changes to your startpage YOU make again.

Can you post a new hijackthislog please?

By the way, I don't really know what other things you performed, now your IE shortcut got corrupted as well. I just hope you didn't tinker too much with other settings... and make your IE totally corrupt.

Use this regfix to restore your IE shortcut:

I really do read your replies, I was just informing you that I had done that prior to coming to this site, just trying to give you some background info

Ok, but reading your replies, I guess by performing other own things previously, you made things worse and probably corrupted your IE.

Do you have Firefox installed? Firefox should work without any problems.
