Hi! My IE has been infected by www.9991.com and I have read the (closed) topics on that in the HJ logs section, however since every pc is different I thought it too dangerous to follow the instructions which are mentioned there. Am I right?
Another thing is that I don't know too much about HJ and would like it very much if someone could help me with this!
Any help is appreciated!! Many thanx in advance!

Another question I have is that even though IE has been infected, I prefer using Mozilla and Netscape. I wonder if this IE infection also can gather any information from the before mentioned browsers?
Again, thanx in advance!!

Welcome to BC! :thumbsup:

HiJackThis, what is it?

You should never attempt to fix anything using HijackThis, until someone who is experienced at reading the log outputs, has a chance to review it. Fixing the wrong items can make a computer unbootable.

Spaces, extra characters, spelling, file location, plus numerous other subtle changes, all make the difference between a good, or bad, file entry.

HijackThis is an ennumerator. It lists what is found in certain areas of the registry, or system files, in an easily accessible manner, so that those familiar with the use and reading of HijackThis logs, and windows programs, can determine what is infecting the machine, and how to remove it.

It is not a removal tool. It will indeed remove the entries listed, but that does not cure the underlying problem. The problem must be properly identified first, and cured, prior to removing the entries with HJT.
Otherwise you leave the infection, and remove the keys which are needed to identify and remove it .

Removing entries in HJT before the problem is properly identified, and correct removal instructions posted, can make the problem undetectable to other detection and removal tools. Hijack this should only be used to clean up the entries left behind, after you have properly removed the offending program, file, trojan, worm, hijacker etc. And this usually requires help.

If you care to get some help using HiJackThis, following are the instructions on how to do so:

Read the Preparation Guide found HERE. It is very important that you follow ALL of the instructions found within. (There are many important steps in this guide that may clean your computer.)

Post your system information along with a brief description of the problems you are having, and your HJT log in the HJT forum found HERE.

NOTE: Please, after you post your HJT log DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post there will be 1 reply. The team member glancing over the replies might think someone is already helping you out and will not respond. So, just make your post and let it sit there until a team member responds. The volunteers who work that forum are very busy, so please be patient and wait. It can sometimes take a few days for a response. If after 5 days you still have gotten no response, then post a link to your HJT log HERE.

If, after finishing your work with the folks at the HJT forum you have issues with Windows related to the removal of the infection, then come to the other forums and let us help you get your computer back to normal.

Currently home chillin' with the fam and my two dogs!
