Here's my HJT log. I keep having "about:blanK" with some search page loading off and on. Ad-aware always finds and removes and so does CWShredder. Nevertheless, it keeps coming back, and not necessarily after rebooting. Do you see anything here?

I hope I did this correctly. I haven't done anything since creating this log. Thanks in advance for any help. Jim

You are currently using hijackthis from a temp directory. This can cause problems. Please create a directory on your c: drive called c:\hijackthis and download and unzip hijackthis into that directory. Run the program from that directory from now on.

Do not fix any entries yourself from this point forward as I need to see whats happening.


FIx these with hijackthis:

O8 - Extra context menu item: &iSearch The Web - res://C:\WINDOWS\System32\toolbar.dll/SEARCH.HTML

Reboot into safe mode and delete the following file:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\toolbar.dll

Reboot and post a new log

Hi! Thanks for looking and responding. Sorry about the late reply but I've been out of town for the last few days. I did as you instructed, however there was not C:\windows\System32\toolbar.dll file.

Here is my second HJT log

Please do the following:

Download the program FindNFix from the following location:
http://freeatlast100.100free.com/

Once at that page, download the FindNFix program

Once it is downloaded, double-click on the file to run it. Follow the prompts to install the program. Once it is installed a window will open up showing the installation directory and a bunch of files in the right section of the window.

On the right portion of the window look for the file called !LOG!.bat and double-click on it. It will scan through your computer for a while, so be patient. When it is completed it will automatically open a notepad window called Log.txt.

Copy the contents of that file into a reply to this post.

Now that we know what the offending file is, we can move to the next step.

Please open the FindNFix folder which can be found at c:\findnfix.

Inside that folder will be another folder called keys1. Please double-click on that folder.

When that folder opens you will see another file called MOVEit.bat. Right-click on the MOVEit.bat file and click on Edit. This will open up notepad with the contents of that file inside it.

Copy and paste the following line into that file, replacing the current line inside it already.

move C:\WINDOWS\System32\COMNDL.DLL   c:\junkxxx\COMNDL.DLL

Then click on File and Save and exit notepad.

The next step will reboot your computer, so please do not continue until you have shut down any programs or saved any data that needs to be saved.

Then double-click on the file Fix.bat contained in the same folder as MOVEit.bat.

You will get an alert that your computer will reboot in about 20 seconds. Allow the computer to reboot.

When the computer has rebooted and you are at the desktop. Open up the c:\findnfix folder again and double-click on the RESTORE.bat file.

When it is finished, open the c:\findnfix folder again and double click on the Log1.txt file found there. This will open up notepad. Please post all of the contents of the notepad that opens in a reply to this topic.

Please now open the the FindNFix folder again. Then double click on the Files2 folder to open that. Double-click on the ZIPZAP.bat file.

It will clean the rest of the infection and make a copy of the bad file in the same folder and name it junkxxx.zip and open your email client with instructions as to what to do.

Simply drag the junkxxx.zip file into your email message so it becomes an attachment. Then copy and paste the link to this topic into the body of the message and send the email. This is done so that the program, FindNFix, will be updated with any new information that may be found in your file so that others can benefit from it.

When you are done, please delete the entire FindNFix folder.

Now download and run CWShredder. You can download the program from the following locations:

http://www.merijn.org/files/cwshredder.zip

or

http://www.zerosrealm.com/downloads/CWShredder.zip

After you download the program, unzip it into a directory. Make sure all browser windows are closed and double click on the cwshredder.exe to start the program. When the program is loaded click on the "Check for Update" button, and if it finds an new version it will download it. You should then double click on cwshredder.exe again and click on the "FIX" button (not the "Scan only" button) and let it scan your computer.

A tutorial that goes over this process step by step can be found here:

How to remove CoolWebSearch with CoolWeb Shredder

When that is completed, please download the latest version of Ad-Aware from the following location:

Ad-aware

Make sure you update the program before you scan with it. A tutorial on using ad-aware can be found below:

AD-AWARE - Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware/Hijackers from Your Computer.

When that is completed post a new hijackthis log

I'm not sure my email went in correctly because I don't use Outlook normally. But I believe I did manage to attach the junkxxx. file. In any case, here's the new HJT log:

Well, what do you know? I don't deserve the compliment. Even if it is patting yourself on the back the "excellent job" should go to yourself. Many thanks.
