    I also had the 'Martfinder' IE default homepage problem and followed the instructions you have given other people in this forum. That is, I ran the Shredder and HJT programs. Here is the HJT log after that process below, am I ok now?

    Hi jpfsite

    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"



    Go here and download Adaware 6 Build 181

    Install the program and launch it.

    First in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now and download the latest referencefiles.

    Make sure the following settings are made and on -------ON=GREEN

    From main window :Click Start then Activate in-depth scan (recommended)

    Click Use custom scanning options then click Customize and have these options selected: Under Drives and Folders put a check by Scan within archives and below that under Memory and Registry put a check by all the options there.

    Now click on the Tweak button in that same window. Under Scanning engine select Unload recognized processes during scanning and under Cleaning Engine select Let windows remove files in use at next reboot

    Click proceed to save your settings.

    Now to scan just click the Next button.

    When the scan is finished mark everything for removal and get rid of it.(Right-click the window and choose select all from the drop down menu and click Next)

    Restart your computer.


    Then go here and download Spybot Search & Destroy.

    Install the program and launch it.

    Before scanning press Online and Search for Updates .

    Put a check mark at and install all updates.

    Click Check for Problems and when the scan is finished let Spybot fix/remove all it finds marked in RED.

    Restart your computer.

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

    How to start your computer in safe mode

    First in safe mode click on My Computer then click Tools > Folder Options. In Folder options click on the View tab. Under Files and Folders tick "Show hidden files and folders" then uncheck "Hide file extensions for known file types" and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files (recommended)". Now click "Like current folder" then "Apply" and "OK"

    Now find and delete:

    The C:\WINNT\win32.bmp file
    The C:\WINNT\win32.exe file
    The c:\winnt\win.exe file
    The C:\winnt\web\printers\images\explore.exe file
    The C:\windows\web\printers\images\start.bat file
    The C:\WINNT\Fonts\rundll32.exe file
    The C:\WINNT\system32\win32load.ex file
    The C:\WINNT\system32\w32sup.exe file

    Empty the Recycle Bin.


    Go here and do an online virus scan:

    Be sure and put a check in the box by "Auto Clean" before you do the scan. If it finds anything that it cannot clean have it delete it or make a note of the file location so you can delete it yourself.
