Hi,

I'm new to the forums and was directed to this website by a friend.

Just recently I have noticed that my computer has been affected by a browser hijacker. The reason behind this is that whenever I type a keyword into Google, then hit search, it redirects me to other websites such as Netster, Monster Marketplace etc.

I have also scanned my computer using Lavasoft's Ad-Aware but there must be a problem with this software because everytime I hit the scan button it lasts for about 5 minutes and freezes which isn't any good to me.

I've used the following programs:
- McAfee Stinger
- Spybot - Search & Destroy
- ZoneAlarm Pro

to scan my computer and clean/delete any dodgy programs/files on my computer. This doesn't seem to have fixed my problem.

The tutorials on this website are very useful and I have gone through the relevant ones needed to fix the problem but none have suceeded.

This is why I have uploaded the popular HijackThis log.

Hope someone can help with this probably very easy deletion of a browser hijacker.

:flowers: :thumbsup: :huh:

Hello kezlad2cool,

I am SifuMike and I will be helping you. :flowers:

You will need to use Internet Explorer for this scan.

Disable your antivirus program and go here to run BitDefender Online Scan.
Click on I Agree.
Avoid clicking on other links as you don't need to try out the full install at this point, just the online scanner.

When the ActiveX Control has loaded, click on "Click here to scan".
Please be patient, as this scan may take a few hours. It all depends on the number of files on your computer.

NOTE: If you are running XP SP2, you may need to click on the Information Bar to allow the ActiveX to install and may need to repeat the BitDefender Online Scan.


When BitDefender completes the scan, select the "Detected Problems" tab.
Click on "Click here to export scan".
Save the file as an HTML to your Desktop.
Then click on the saved file and allow it to open with your browser.
Go to Edit - Select All then copy/paste that log back here.
Post the BitDefender log.

Download ATF (Atribune Temp File) Cleanerę by Atribune DO NOT run it yet.

Download and install AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 (formerly Ewido)
This is a 30 day trial of the program

AVG Anti-Spyware is designed to be used to both scan for and remove malicious files and also to run in real-time alongside, but not replace, your existing anti-virus program to give an added layer of protection.
Both the Resident Shield and Automatic Updates will only be available for the thirty day trial period, after that AVG Anti-Spyware will revert to a stand-alone scanner which you can keep and manually update for free and use in a similar way to Ad-Aware SE Personal, Spybot S&D etc.

******************


You attached a Hijackthis log that is run from a beta version of Hijackthis. This verson still has bugs in it so we do not use it. :thumbsup:

Please delete that Beta version and download the latest version from the following link:

HijackThis Download Site with installer
Just click on Hijackthis_sfx.exe file that you downloaded.
A WinZip self extractor screen appears with the default location of C:\Program Files\Hijackthis.
Then press the Unzip button. Then close the Self-Extractor window.

Using My Computer/Windows Explorer, navigate to C:\Program Files\HijackThis and double click on HijackThis.exe to run it.

If you would like to make a shortcut for your Desktop so it's more easily accessable, right click HijackThis.exe and choose Send To > Desktop (create shortcut).

Please run the extracted HijackThis.exe from now on.

Please post a fresh Hijackthis log. Do NOT post your log as an attachment, in quotes or code, as it is harder to read that way.


When done, submit the BitDefender log, the [b]AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5
log and a fresh Hijackthis log.
