Hi,

Could someone please analyze this for me? I've already tried Adaware and Spybots, and McAfee continues to wig out whenever I open a brower even after "removing" all the problems. Thanks!

Hi ,
Thanks for the response. I was able to solve this just a few hours before your response by looking up an earlier post titled "HJT Log, Help! How do I get rid of BackDoor-bdd?"
I think the key was to remove the
following ,

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = res://C:\WINNT\system32\gswpi.dll/sp.html#28129
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://C:\WINNT\system32\gswpi.dll/sp.html#28129
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = about:blank
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = res://C:\WINNT\system32\gswpi.dll/sp.html#28129
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = res://C:\WINNT\system32\gswpi.dll/sp.html#28129
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://C:\WINNT\system32\gswpi.dll/sp.html#28129
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = res://C:\WINNT\system32\gswpi.dll/sp.html#28129
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {66A7894D-5BB1-47DE-BDB2-736680128744} - C:\WINNT\system32\winai.dll

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [VKTWCV] C:\WINNT\Temp\VKTWCV.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [zQmzQ] C:\winnt\temp\zQmzQ.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [FKcriq] C:\WINNT\rutsxjrw.exe

then the DelDomains.inf and about buster.

I have incorporated additionally some of the other things you mentioned.

Thanks again.

Sarva
