Hello,

I've been having some problems with internet explorer .. whenever I open certain sites the url http://channels.aimtoday.com/errorpages/404.jsp flickers and I remember having received pop up ads for this site .. and prior to this problem I had been asked whether or not I wanted to set it as a homepage .. I'm thinking I accidently hit yes though I don't remember doing so ... I did a Symantec virus scan and found bkinst.exe, host.exe, [c1].htm, l[1].exe. I used spybot to remove adware. I did a google search and found all of the information here and think it might be a Virtumonde that the symantec fix doesn't work on ... so that's my story and here is my Hijackthis log ... help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey,

I did as asked, except for a few things that couldn't be found.

O2 - BHO: Viewpoint Toolbar BHO - {A7327C09-B521-4EDB-8509-7D2660C9EC98} - C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\Viewpoint Toolbar\ViewBarBHO.dll

I found a lot of stuff related to AIM in these spots, and this seems to be related to the problem .. should I delete these? I might add that some websites work and some do not, google searches work but when I click on most things they don't work.

I could not find any of these in Hijackthis. Also, when I was deleting viewpoint and wildtangent in safe mode, I could only find viewpoint and not wildtangent.

That's OK. Viewpoint and Wildtangent were uninstalled.

Spots ? :thumbsup:

Uninstall AIM, reboot and tell me if the problem is gone. Post also a new hijackthis log please.

Check your Internet Explorer settings.

Hello,

I reset to default and still have the same problem, some sites work and some do not ....

Examples of sites that work include www.google.com, which I can search through ... and google news , however when I search google images it won't work .. and most images won't load on sites I can get to that should have images. Is there a file that might have been accidently deleted or something that would cause this difference?

Thanks,
Eric

Google searches work, but I can't get to www.yahoo.com .. but I can get to www.google.com ... I can't get to my universities website .edu ... I remember having had AIMtoday advertisements and being asked whenever I opened internet explorer whether or not I wanted to set it as my homepage .. I also had a problem where aimtoday/errorpages/404.jsp would try to load everytime I opened sites and this would prevent me from getting to the same types of sites. I had done a virus scan and found bkinst.exe and host.exe so I thought it was virtumonde but the symantec tool didn't remove it .. so I tried the manuel removal ..

I might add that I've been using a different computer to post on these forums, since this site does not work on the malfunctioning computer.

Any insights?

Thanks,
Eric

so I tried the manuel removal

I don't know what you did. I'm not sure I can help you. Did you run Ad-Aware and Spybot Search & Destroy ?

but the symantec tool didn't remove it

Symatec tool doesn't remove all variants.

Reinstall Internet Explorer. --> http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/downlo...p1/default.mspx

Go to Start --> Run, and type cmd in the Open box, then click OK to open a command prompt.
Type sfc /scannow, note the space after sfc.

Insert you original Windows CD in the CD-ROM drive. This will restore your protected system files on your computer.

Hello,

I don't know if the problem is related to internet explorer, since other applications don't work either. For instance, I was not able to log into AIM (before I uninstalled it) .. and also in games I am unable to log onto battle.net , which provides a message suggesting that I am not connected to the internet (invalid server) .. it's strange because some websites DO work ... AHH!

I'm going to go ahead and try the reinstallation of internet explorer though I don't think that's the cause of the troubles.

Thanks,
Eric
