I am having a great deal of trouble removing home search assistant from my computer. I have followed a number of online tutorials but have failed to remove it from my computer. If anyone could help me in any way I would appreciate it. I have attached the results from HJT. Thanks.

Hi jamie3219,

You have a nasty CoolWebSearch infection which requires precise steps to fix:

Please download ServiceFilter.zip. This will reveal potential unauthorized running services in your system. Extract it to a new folder on your desktop. Double-click ServiceFilter.vbs. This script will create a text file named Post_This.txt in the same folder as the script itself has been saved - copy and paste the contents of Post_This.txt in your next reply here along with a new Hijackthis log.

From the moment you post your list, until you see a detailed fix written up, DO NOT reboot your system or log off. If you do, the service will have changed and the fix provided will not work

Copy and paste the contents of the quotebox to Notepad. Name the file as fix.reg. Change the Save as Type to All Files. Save this file on the desktop, we'll use it a bit later:

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\HSA]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\SE]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\SW]


Follow the tutorial here to download and configure Ad-Aware: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...showtutorial=48. Do not run it yet, we'll do that a bit later.

Download AboutBuster. Unzip it to C:\aboutbuster but don't run it yet we'll do that later on down in this list in SAFE MODE.

Make sure you have Set Windows to show Hidden Files & Folders, then reboot into safe mode.

You may want to print out the rest of these steps to refer to as you go. IMPORTANT: Please stay offline until instructed otherwise, connecting to the internet could cause this fix to fail.

Next, go to Start => Run and type "Services.msc" (without quotes) then hit Ok.

Scroll down and find the services called:

Network Security Service

Double-click on it. In the next window that opens, click the Stop button, then click on properties and under the General Tab, change the Startup Type to Disabled. Now hit Apply and then Ok and close any open windows.

Press control-alt-delete to get into the task manager and end the follow processes if they exist:

sysuu32.exe

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

Navigate to and delete the following files if present (If you get an error when deleting a file. Right click on the file and check to see if the read only attribute is checked. if it is uncheck it and try again.):

C:\WINDOWS\system32\sysuu32.exe <-------- Delete this file.
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ielx.dll <-------- Delete this file.
C:\WINDOWS\uhghv.dll <-------- Delete this file.
C:\WINDOWS\javazw.exe <-------- Delete this file.

Still in Safe Mode go to C:\Windows\Temp folder.
Open the Temp folder and go to Edit>Select All, then Edit>Delete to remove the entire contents of the Temp folder.

Next, go to C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp folder.
Open the Temp folder and go to Edit>Select All, then Edit>Delete to remove the entire contents of that Temp folder (do this for all usernames).

Finally, go to Control Panel>Internet Options.
On the General tab under: Temporary Internet Files, click: Delete Files
Place a check by: Delete Offline Content when the prompt appears, and click OK.
Next, click on the Programs tab, then click: Reset Web Settings button.
Click Apply, then OK.

Also, empty the Recycle Bin.

Next, we will remove the offending service. Go to Start | Run and type Regedit then click Ok.
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services
and expand Services in the left pane. Look for any entries named as:

%AF or Network Security Service

If any are listed, right-click that entry in and choose Delete.

Again in Regedit, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root and expand Root in the Left Pane. Look for any entries like this:

LEGACY %AF or LEGACY Network Security Service

If any are listed, right-click the entry and choose Delete.

If you have trouble deleting a key. Then click once on the key name to highlight it and click on the Permission menu option under Security or Edit. Then Uncheck "Allow inheritible permissions" and press copy. Then click on everyone and put a checkmark in "full control". Then press apply and ok and attempt to delete the key again.

Browse to C:\aboutbuster and double click on aboutbuster.exe. When the tool is open press the OK button, then the Start button, then the OK button, and then finally the Yes button. It will start scanning your computer for files. If it asks if you would like to do a second pass, allow it to do so.When finished, press the "Save log" button. I will want a copy of that log after all steps are completed here.

Then double-click on the fix.reg file we created earlier on your desktop and when it prompts to merge say yes, this will clear some registry entries left behind by the process.

Now run Ad-Aware.

Reboot into normal mode.

It is also possible that the infection may have deleted up to three files from your system. If these files are present, to be safe I suggest you overwrite them with a new copy.

Go here and download the version of control.exe for your operating system. If you are running Windows 2000, copy it to c:\winnt\system32\. For Windows XP, copy it to c:\windows\system32\.

Download the Hoster from here Press 'Restore Original Hosts' and press 'OK'
Exit Program.

If you have Spybot S&D installed you may also need to replace one file.
Go here and download SDHelper.dll. Copy the file to the folder containing you Spybot S&D program (normally C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy)

Additionally, Please check your ActiveX security settings. They may have been changed by this CWS variant to allow ALL ActiveX!! If they have been changed, reset your active x security settings in IE as recommended.
Go to Internet Options/Security/Internet, press 'default level', then OK.
Now press "Custom Level."
In the ActiveX section, set the first option, 'Download signed controls', to 'Prompt; set the
second option, 'Download unsigned controls', to 'Disable'; and finally, set 'Initialize and Script ActiveX controls not marked as safe" to 'Disable'.


Do an online scan at TrendMicro's site. Let it remove any infected files found.

Finally, when you are all done, please post the new HJT log and the AboutBuster log here for review.

Go to Add/Remove in your control panel and remove P2P Networking and Wild Tangent (not required). I also recommend that you uninstall Weatherbug, unless you are using the paid version. The free version is adware but does not contain any spyware. Tropic Designs WeathPulse is freeware with no ads and is available here: http://www.tropicdesigns.net/weatherpulse.html

Apart from those items your log is clean :thumbsup:

It's a good idea to Flush your System Restore after ridding yourself of malware:

1. On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
2. Click Properties.
3. Click the System Restore tab.
4. Check Turn off System Restore.
5. Click Apply, and then click OK.
6. Restart the computer.
7. Follow steps 1 to 3 again, then uncheck Turn off System Restore tab.

When you are sure you are clean create a restore point.

To create a restore point:

Single-click Start and point to All Programs.
Mouse over Accessories, then System Tools, and select System Restore.
In the System Restore wizard, select the box next the text labeled "Create a restore point" and click the Next button.
Type a description for your new restore point. Something like "After trojan/spyware cleanup". Click Create and you're done.


To reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster and SpyWareGuard and IE/Spyad.

SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard are by JavaCool and both are free programs. SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed and consumes no system resources. SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.

More info and download is available at:
SpywareBlaster: http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
SpywareGuard: http://www.wilderssecurity.net/spywareguard.html


IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It is free.

More info and download is available at:
IE/Spyad: https://netfiles.uiuc.edu/ehowes/www/resource.htm


Click here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows. Click here to get the latest version of Internet Explorer. It's very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks.
