Angry Solved: IE7 search redirect/hijack
For the last month I have had problems with my ie7. I enter a search query and when I click on a link ie7 is redirected to other search sites. I installed Firefox and don't have the problem. I have used several virus and spyware removal tools but nothing has worked. Any help or suggestions are be greatly appreciated.

Hello railtja and Welcome to Tech Support Guy!


Please read this post completely, it may make it easier for you if you copy and paste this post to a new text document or print it for reference later.

Please Disable TrojanHunter Guard, it may interfere with the cleaning.
Disable TrojanHunter Guard by right clicking on the icon in your System Tray.

Make sure that the program, TrojanHunter itself, is also closed/not running.

Please move hijackthis.exe into a permanent folder

To create a permanent folder click My Computer, then C:\
In the menu bar click on File, New, Folder.
That will create a folder named New Folder, which you can rename to "HJT" Now you have C:\HJT\ folder. Put your HijackThis.exe into that folder and post another log.


Please re-open HiJackThis and scan. Check the boxes next to all the entries listed below.(if present):

O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{4E7B71CF-B63A-4EDA-8159-0818739ABB28}: NameServer = 85.255.115.30,85.255.112.226
O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{4F87144F-E41F-43ED-A1EA-2BB8B8B48519}: NameServer = 85.255.115.30,85.255.112.226

O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\Parameters: NameServer = 85.255.115.30 85.255.112.226

Now close all windows other than HiJackThis, then click Fix Checked.

Please download FixWareout from here:
http://downloads.subratam.org/Fixwareout.exe

Save it to your desktop and run it. Click Next, then Install, make sure "Run fixit" is checked and click Finish.
The fix will begin; follow the prompts. If your firewall gives an alert, (because this tool will download an additional file from the internet), please don't let your firewall block it, but allow it instead.
Then you will be asked to reboot your computer; please do so. Your system may take longer than usual to load; this is normal.
Once the desktop loads please post the text that will open (report.txt) and a new Hijackthis log





Before doing this write down all the settings, Note that not all system/setups even have these settings, While some connection services will require them.

These instructions are basically for home users.

In the windows control panel. If you are using Windows XP's Category View, select the Network and Internet Connections category otherwise double click on Network Connections. Then right click on your default connection, usually local area connection for cable and dsl, and left click on properties. Click the Networking tab. Double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item and select the radio dial that says Obtain DNS servers automatically

Press OK twice to get out of the properties screen and reboot if it asks.
That option might not be avaiable one some systems
Next Go start run type cmd and hit OK
type
ipconfig /flushdns
then hit enter, type exit hit enter
(that space between g and / is needed)


I would like you to generate a "Add/Remove Software list" log using the HijackThis application. Here is how you can do this:

To get an Uninstall List from HijackThis:
  • Open HijackThis, click Config, click Misc Tools
  • Click "Open Uninstall Manager"
  • Click "Save List" (generates uninstall_list.txt)
  • Click Save, copy and paste the results in your next post.


In your next reply, please include these log(s):

*report.txt
* HijackThis Uninstall List
* HijackThis log (new)



Also, please let me know how things are running now and if you encountered any problems while you were following the instructions I posted.

Hello railtja


Please read this post completely, it may make it easier for you if you copy and paste this post to a new text document or print it for reference later.

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune.
This program is for XP and Windows 2000 only
  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
    Under Main choose: Select All
    Click the Empty Selected button.
If you use Firefox browser
  • Click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
    Click the Empty Selected button.
    NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
If you use Opera browser
  • Click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
    Click the Empty Selected button.
    NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
For Technical Support, double-click the e-mail address located at the bottom of each menu.

Next, download AVG Anti-Spyware from HERE and save that file to your desktop.
This is a 30 day trial of the program
  1. Once you have downloaded AVG Anti-Spyware, locate the icon on the desktop and double-click it to launch the set up program.
  2. Once the setup is complete you will need run AVG Anti-Spyware and update the definition files.
  3. On the main screen select the icon "Update" then select the "Update now" link.
    • Next select the "Start Update" button, the update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
  4. Once the update has completed select the "Scanner" icon at the top of the screen, then select the "Settings" tab.
  5. Once in the Settings screen click on "Recommended actions" and then select "Quarantine".
  6. Under "Reports"
    • Select "Automatically generate report after every scan"
    • Un-Select "Only if threats were found"
Close AVG Anti-Spyware, Do Not run a scan just yet, we will shortly in safe mode.

Please re-open HiJackThis and scan. Check the boxes next to all the entries listed below.(if present):

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch =
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [mcinfo_1176661828] C:\DOCUME~1\JEFF&D~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\mcinfo_1176661828.exe /insfin

Now close all windows other than HiJackThis, then click Fix Checked. Reboot into safe mode.

Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.

You will need to enable hidden files and folders by doing the following:
Windows XP

* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View Tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.

*NOTE: You should remove LimeWire. P2P (peer-to-peer) using P2P software is very risky, because it makes you very susceptible to infection, attack, exposure of personal or company information. But this is up to you to remove LimeWire.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs.

Please remove these entries from Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel (if present):
LimeWire 4.12.6



IMPORTANT: Do not open any other windows or programs while AVG AntiSpyware is scanning, it may interfere with the scanning proccess:
  • Launch AVG AntiSpyware by double-clicking the icon on your desktop.
  • Select the "Scanner" icon at the top and then the "Scan" tab then click on "Complete System Scan".
  • AVG AntiSpyware will now begin the scanning process, be patient this may take a little time.
    Once the scan is complete do the following:
  • If you have any infections you will prompted, then select "Apply all actions"
  • Next select the "Reports" icon at the top.
  • Select the "Save report as" button in the lower left hand of the screen and save it to a text file on your desktop (This is important)
  • Close AVG AntiSpyware and reboot your system back into Normal Mode.


In your next reply, please include these log(s):

* AVG AntiSpyware contents
* HijackThis log (new)


Also, please let me know how things are running now and if you encountered any problems while you were following the instructions I posted.

Thumbs up Second set of instructions followed
I followed your second set of instructions. They were straightforward and easy to follow, and I still do not have a problem with my searches being redirected.

I would like to know what the steps that you asked me to do did and what, specifically, you are looking for. If I know what we are doing then I can learn something from this experience (I do understand why I had to remove Limewire).

Do I still keep AVG? I was using McAfee, but switched to NOD32 (trial version) because McAfee appeared to have missed things. Is AVG what you recommend? I also donwloaded the trial version of TrojanHunter to try and find whatever the problem was--it didn't, so is this program helpful? I have also Ad-aware and Spybot S&D, do I keep these?

Again, many thanks for your help.

Your computer had a wareout infection visit http://www.liutilities.com/products/...brary/wareout/
I ran AVG Anti-Spyware to see if you had other infections. And when AVG Anti-spyware trial period expires it becomes feature-limited freeware but is still worth keeping as a good on-demand scanner.

was using McAfee, but switched to NOD32 (trial version) because McAfee appeared to have missed things. Is AVG what you recommend? I also donwloaded the trial version of TrojanHunter to try and find whatever the problem was--it didn't, so is this program helpful? I have also Ad-aware and Spybot S&D, do I keep these?
I don't care for McAfee or Norton both are system hogs. NOD32 is a great antivirus software. I use AVG Anti-Virus free on my computers. AVG ANTIVIRUS FREE EDITION -

TrojanHunter is good. And you can keep Ad-aware and Spybot S&D. I have some GREAT tools and utilities that I like to suggest to people below. We'll tidy up a few things now.

Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system.

Updating Java and Clearing Cache
  1. Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on the Java Icon (coffee cup) in the Control Panel.
  2. It will say "Java Plug-in" under the icon.
    Please find the update button or tab in the Java Control Panel. Update your Java then reboot.
  3. If you are unable to update you can manually update by going here:
  4. After the reboot, go back into the Control Panel and double-click the Java Icon.
  5. Under Temporary Internet Files, click the Delete Files button.
  6. There are three options in the window to clear the cache - Leave ALL 3 Checked
    • Downloaded Applets
      Downloaded Applications
      Other Files
  7. Click OK on Delete Temporary Files Window
    Note: This deletes ALL the Downloaded Applications and Applets from the CACHE.
  8. Click OK to leave the Java Control Panel.

Run HijackThis, click on "Scan" and check the boxes next to all these items.

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch =

Then close all windows, and browsers, except HijackThis. Tell HijackThis to "Fix checked".





Congratulations, your log looks clean!

You will need to print out these instructions for a reference or you can
save them by copying and pasting them into notepad and saving the text file to the desktop

Some final items:

Important, we need to flush out all System Restore points.

To reset your restore points, please note that you will need to log into your computer with an account which has full administrator access. You will know if the account has administrator access because you will be able to see the System Restore tab. If the tab is missing, you are logged in under a limited account.

(Windows XP)
1. Turn off System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

2. Reboot.

3. Turn ON System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check *Turn off System Restore*.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

The following is a list of tools and utilities that I like to suggest to people. This list is full of great tools and utilities to help you understand how you got infected and how to keep from getting infected again.
  1. SpywareBlaster - Great prevention tool to keep nasties from installing on your system.
  2. SpywareGuard - Works as a Spyware "Shield" to protect your computer from getting malware in the first place.
  3. IE-SpyAd - puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.
  4. SiteAdvisor download this plug-in for your browser and it will alert you of a known bad site for FREE.
  5. Windows Updates - It is very important to make sure that both Internet Explorer and Windows are kept current with the latest critical security patches from Microsoft. To do this just start Internet Explorer and select Tools > Windows Update, and follow the online instructions from there.
  6. Google Toolbar - Free google toolbar that allows you to use the powerful Google search engine from the bar, but also blocks pop up windows.
  7. Trillian or Miranda-IM - These are Malware free Instant Messenger programs which allow you to connect to multiple IM services in one program! (AOL, Yahoo, ICQ, IRC, MSN)
To find out more information about how you got infected in the first place and some great guidelines to follow to prevent future infections you can read this article by Tony Klein

Smile Thanks!
I have followed your latest steps--no problems.

Later I will cancel my subscription to McAfee, uninstall NOD32 and use the AVG (free) as my antivirus software.

I have used Firefox sparingly, but I will look into using Opera, and I plan to download and use the other tools and utilities that you have suggested.

Again, many thanks for solving this problem for me.
