I have this browser hijacker Home Search Assistant and do not know how to get rid of. I have notice other things such as pop ups including "only the best" that may be realted. Everytime I click on the Internet Explorer icon it defaults to the about:blank Home Search Assistant homepage. I have also noticed that a pop up that says "Welcome to System Performance Wizard" pops up everytime the Home Search Assistant homepage is loaded. I originally posted a topic in the AntiVirus, Firewall and Privacy Products and Protection Methods forum. They said to run a Hijack This log and post it here. I would really appreciate help as to how to effectively get rid of this and there are many conflicting opinions out there. Here is my log:

Hi

Download the stand-alone version of CWShredder from here
Install the program.

Make sure all browser windows are closed and run cwshredder.exe, and click on the FIX button (not the "Scan only" button) and let it scan your computer.

REBOOT your computer and post a new hijackthis log please.
Everyday is virus day. Do you know where your recovery CDs are ?
Did you create them yet ?

I downloaded CWShredder and began running program in fix mode. It started scanning for various CWS files. When it came to CWS.HomeSearch it stopped. I got a message the said CWSShredder has encountered a problem and needs to close. I tried to re-run CWShredder 2-3 more times with the same message appearing. I am not sure what to do next.

Try again. It will crash but finally it will remove it.

I finally was able to run CWShredder without it closing. It said it has cleaned it but I guess we will soon find out. I did a complete reboot and then ran Hijack This. Here is new log file.

I have noticed that Home Search Assistant is back again even after running CWShredder and rebooting computer. I am not sure what to do next.

Hi,

I have tried to complete everthing as intstructed. I noticed TSA was not in the Add\Remove Programs when I looked to uninstall it. Additionally, did not see C:\Program files\Common files\tsa folder when did a search to delete folder. When I did online antivirus scan at housecall it found 122 infected files with two that it could not access and 120 that were not cleanable. I delete the 120 infected files. The 2 files/viruses that it could not access or delete were described as JAVA_BYTEVER.B. I then did a HIJACK THIS scan after I completed all of your directions. Here is log:

How did I get infected ? With steps so it does not happen again !

Glad I was able to help.


Your Windows is not up-to-date, and it is vulnerable.
You should take seriously into consideration the installation of Service Pack 2:
Windows XP Service Pack 2
Everyday is virus day. Do you know where your recovery CDs are ?
Did you create them yet ?

Daisuke,

Thank you very much for you help. You are a master computer person! I did not think I was ever going to get rid of this hijacker and etc. Also, I am pretty sure I may have already updated my computer with the Windows XP
Service Pack 2 after I had obtained the hijacker maybe a week or ten days ago. Is there a way to tell if I have this update? If I try to update it will it tell me I already have it or not? I don't want to make the computer crash if I already installed it. Also, what do you think about the Beta Version Anti-spy ware from Microsoft? I downloaded that after I realized I got the hijacker a week or 10 days ago. It seemed okay at getting rid of some spyware and is free but definitely could not get rid of the hijacker.

Thank you

Your log shows Service Pack 1.

what do you think about the Beta Version Anti-spy ware from Microsoft?

I think it's a good program.

but definitely could not get rid of the hijacker

Some hijackers are difficult to remove. There is no miraculous anti-spy sofware, yet. :thumbsup:
