I'm in desperate need of some help and I know one of you can help me. I've searched the forums and have found similar problems, but I am such an idiot when it comes to computers that I think I need my own detailed instructions! My husband was surfing (believe it or not) some adult sites one nite and now I keep getting this "about:blank" homepage and tons more pop-ups. I've tried what I could (spybot,adaware away, cws, buster)and I've read about HJT so I'm pasting the log. Other than that, I have no clue! Please talk to me as if you were talking to a child!

Thanks.

hi, welcome to TSG.



IMPORTANT! Move Hijack this from the Temp or from the Desktop to it's own folder!

Make a new folder in C:\ and call it Hijack this, and Save hijack this to
this folder so that it runs properly and can make back ups. Click scan,
then save the log and post it here so we can take a look at it for you.

go to add/remove and uninstall SpyFighter it's a piece of junk. look for it's folder in c:\program files and delete it. Heres' info below on spyfighter.


http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm


go to this site and download these tools and once you get both
adaware and spybot, update both of them.

Set adaware to do a full system scan and deselect, "search for neglible risk entries".
Click next to start the scan.Delete everything adaware finds.

reboot and now run spybot

Spybot: Search and destroy.

Delete what spybot finds marked in red. After updating spybot hit the
immunize button.

reboot again


With CWshredder close all browsers and programmes and select the FIX button.



Go here and download Microsoft Antispyware Beta. First in the top menu click
File then Check for updates to download the definitons updates.

After updating look in the right side of the main window under "Run Quick
Scan Now" and click Spyware scan options. In that window put a tick by Run a
full system scan and then put a check by all three options below that then
click Run Scan now.

When the scan is finished, let it fix anything that it finds (have it
quarantine the items that have that option rather than delete just in case.
It is a beta program and there may be false positives)

Restart your computer.


All tools can be downloaded at the link below!


. Microsoft® Windows AntiSpyware
. cwshredder
. SpyBot search and destroy
. AdAware SE


http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloads31.html



have hijack this fix these entries. close all browsers and programmes before
clicking FIX.

O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {CD67F990-D8E9-11d2-98FE-00C0F0318AFE} - (no file)

Now reboot to safe mode find and delete these files and folders if there?


How to boot to safe mode

http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPOR...2001052409420406?OpenDocument&src=sec_doc_nam



Because XP will not always show you hidden files and folders by default,
Go to Start > Search and under "More advanced search options".
Make sure there is a check by "Search System Folders" and "Search hidden
files and folders" and "Search system subfolders"

Next click on My Computer. Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View
tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also
uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and "Hide extensions for
known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
Click "Apply" then "OK"



C:\WINDOWS\d3zh32.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\d3qx.exe



download ccleaner and run it.

http://www.ccleaner.com/




Run ActiveScan online virus scan here

http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/

When the scan is finished, anything that it cannot clean have it delete it.
Make a note of the file location of anything that cannot be deleted so you
can delete it yourself.
- Save the results from the scan!



post another log and active scan's log
