Using Spysweeper and smitfraudfix I have managed to rid my friend's computer of:
trojan-downloader-evko.biz
trojan-nuwar
and bravesentry fakealert
Further sweeps with Spysweeper and AVG Free Edition reveal nothing.
However I cannot restore his home page, just as soon as I close the dialogue box it reverts to an msn page even tho I have repeatedly changed it and clicked OK and Apply. I would appreciate any help on this.
Running the highjack log produced the following:

Hello,

The reason why you can't reset your Homepage is because of your Spysweeper and/or zonealarm.
I know both are watching the homepage and try to prevent it being changed.

For your spysweeper, do this:

Open Spysweeper.
Click shields (in the menu left)
Click the tab Internet Explorer
There you see: "IE hijack shield" and under it: "Edit IE hijack Shield settings"
Check "Edit IE hijack Shield settings"
This will open some settings below.
There you can change what you want as IE home page shield (your homepage) and click save next to it.
Under it, you will see also Advanced settings where the url http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?p...6.0&ar=home is present.
You can change that if you want, or you can also uncheck "Automatically Restore Default without Notification".

In case above didn't work, it's your Zonealarm responsible.
For that you have to change your Homepage in Windows safe mode, because shutting down zonealarm and then changing it won't work.
In some cases, Zonealarm stays stubborn here and uninstalling Zonealarm, then reboot, then changing homepage and then reinstalling Zonealarm should do it.

But I guess changing the settings in Spysweeper will already solve your problem.

Many thanks for your reply. I think you were correct about SpySwseeper as it did not belong on that computer I was able to set the home page with no problem once it had been removed.

Glad to hear. :thumbsup:

By the way.. check and fix next entries in Hijackthis also:

O9 - Extra button: Related - {c95fe080-8f5d-11d2-a20b-00aa003c157a} - C:\WINDOWS\web\related.htm
O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Show &Related Links - {c95fe080-8f5d-11d2-a20b-00aa003c157a} - C:\WINDOWS\web\related.htm

Then, Your version of Java is outdated and needs to be updated to take advantage of fixes that have eliminated security vulnerabilities.
Updating Java:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6.0.
  • Scroll down to where it says "Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation, Multi-language and save to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
    - Examples of older versions in Add or Remove Programs:
    • Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.2
    • J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0
    • J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6-windows-i586.exe to install the newest version.
And -- most important thing of all, update to service pack 2, because without the service pack, this computer is extremely vulnerable and will get reinfected anyway, even when the best antivirus and Firewall is present.
