Hello,

I have been using your tutorial guide to try and remove
'Home Search' from my computer.

Could someone please look at my 'hijackthis.log'
and tell me which files i should remove.
I don't want to remove the wrong files.

Thank you for your help.

Print out these instructions and then close all windows including Internet Explorer.

Then I want you to fix some of those entries. Please do the following:

Please make sure that you can view all hidden files. Instructions on how to do this can be found here:

How to see hidden files in Windows

Run Hijackthis again, click scan, and Put a checkmark next to each of these. Then click the Fix button:

Reboot your computer into Safe Mode

Then delete these files or directories (Do not be concerned if they do not exist)

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\LAM.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\mps.exe
C:\PROGRAM FILES\SED\
C:\Program Files\VBouncer\
C:\N20050308.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\igrowv.exe
C:\Program Files\Norton Internet Security\
C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\msri.exe
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\LAM.DLL

Reboot your computer to go back to normal mode and Download the following file:

http://castlecops.com/zx/Zupe/FindIt9xME.zip


and unzip the contents to a folder. When it has unzipped, open that folder and double click on Find.bat. It will run for a while, so be patient, and then produce a log (ignore any File not found messages on the screen, it should continue anyway).

Please copy and paste that log here.

From the moment you post your list, until you see a detailed fix written up, DO NOT reboot your system or log off. If you do, the files will have changed and the fix provided will not work.
