I put this on general chat first but is this better as i need a log analysis - please help....

Hi i am a new guy here i have a problem i was reffered to here to fix by a friend i found at newbie.org.
I have been through the 36 steps to fix the 'about:blank' issue but still no joy. The problem is still there. (Now i am really worried!)
- to go back to the start,
i have the virus that forces the IE Address res://C:\WINDOWS\System32\shdoclc.dll/navcancl.htm
I have assumed the about:blank issue and the above are the same thing?

Anyway re the suggested 'about:blank' fix everything went smoothly & as described in http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/4210/how-to-remove-aboutblank-aboutnavigationfailure-sedll/ (tho without fnding any values in the applinit - it said it might not) Trend found 2 and deleted, and panda found 13 and cleaned 12 viruses, including a lot that looked to be in the right area.

please help me i am stuffed, at worst i struggle to get any web pages other than those selected by the bastartd behind this, i.e pay porn or spyware.

I have 4 kids banned from this computer as it now randomly pops up heavy porn intros

I managed to get back access to other sites by reinstalling windows over the existing, whch hurt the virus enough to get sites of my choice but the default page is still in their control and will therefore degade as before over time?

heres the Panda report, and after that a new hjt:

1. Download CWShredder: Download here. Unzip it on your Desktop. Don't use it yet.

2. Download this tool from Symantec: Backdoor.Agent.B Removal Tool and save it on your Desktop. Follow Symantec's instructions for how to run it.

3. When the removal process is finished you will find a log on your Desktop . Don't delete it. Please copy & paste the contents of the log as a reply to this post.

4. Restart the computer.

5. Make sure all browser windows are closed and run cwshredder.exe, and click on the FIX button (not the "Scan only" button) and let it scan your computer.

6. Run HijackThis! again and post a fresh together with the Symantec Tool log.

i thnk have some good news, - i worked on this all w/end and up until sunday night when gave up i was still getting the porn pop ups and redirected home page - i have just come to look and see if there are any new replys ( thanks for yours ) and the tentative view is the problem is gone!!!
i can only think the instructions i followed didnt tell me to do a final reboot , or more likely i missed it) so i thought it wasnt fixed when it was. Either that or the virus was so pissed off it decided to go elsewhere overnight

Thanks mate. Gordon

It is a good idea to post your HJT log Gordon. Let me see if it's gone. This CWS variant is not so easy to remove.
