Hi, my roommate recently was experiencing browser hijacked and didn't know how to deal with it. The problem might be caused by his grandchildren who sometimes come over to use his computer to download some programs such as Buddy2Buddy and other games. I followed your preparation guide to clean up the computer and it seems to help alot. Among the critical objects identified by Spybot Search & Destroy and Ad-Aware were data mining tracking cookies and some browser hijackers, etc. I didn't take down the names but I remember one was MtWebSearch or something like it. But the Ad-Aware continued to show critical objects when scanned.

Previously my roommate had a security suite from Cox but the firewall used was Windows'. When I followed your guide to download and install a better firewall, in this case ZoneAlarm, the Cox anti-virus program was disabled. There was no way to get the Cox anti-virus program re-started, so I had to download one from your guide, in this case AVG 7.5. Now, everything seens fine except that lucomserver_2_6.exe and others such as Server of Logitech and Webshot constantly asking from ZoneAlarm for permission to connect to the internet.

I'm attaching the hijackthis logs before and after following your guides, bitdefender report and Ad-Aware logs for your inspections and await for your advice. Thanks!

Hello malwarebegone and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. Let's see a current HijackThis log. Instead of attaching the log to the post copy/paste the entire log into the reply (we don't open attachments in posts).

I will review the information when it comes in.

Cheers.
