Delete all Rs in the log if they're infacr not your iehome pg.,02-C:\WINNT\System32\lofjeic.dll And all 15s unless you actually use this as it's a spyware as well.

Hi ultima

Welcome to TSG!

Click here to download CWShredder. Close all browser windows,UnZip the file, click on the cwshredder.exe then click "Fix" (Not "Scan only") and let it do it's thing.

When it is finished restart your computer.

IMPORTANT!: To help prevent this from happening again, I strongly recommend you install the patches for the vulnerabilities that this hijacker exploits.

The simplest way to make sure you have all the security patches is to go to Windows update and install all "Critical Updates and Service Packs"

Come back here and post another Hijack This log and we'll get rid of what's left.

Yes, I did. I guess I will wait until it comes up tomorrow and I will resend the log file. It is very similar each time it comes up. A new *.dll\sp.htm will come up.

This is a new variant of CWS that is proving to be very elusive. There are several experts working on a fix for it so hang in there. They'll figure it out eventually.

I'm keping a close eye on the developments so as soon as I know something I'll post it here.

When/if it returns go aheads and post another HJT log.

Ultima please post another Hijack This log. The experts have come across a reg fix that I do believe will fix this once and for all. Post your current log and we'll give it a try.

Well even though the log is clean right now I'd say you should run this reg fix anyway.

Copy the text inside the quote box to Notepad, and save in a location of your choice as remove.reg (make sure you save as type: 'all files')

Doubleclick Remove.reg, and answer yes when prompted to add its contents to the Registry.


For XP/2K

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
