    Right, the problem is this:
    1) This program called "internat.exe" has started popping into the system tray (or is it taskbar I dunno, but I mean the place at the bottom tight of the screen)
    2) I press Ctrl+Alt+Del and click End Task, and it's not responding, but I can still End it.
    3) And the biggest problem of all, which I believe might be cause of the previously mentioned: When I try to enter google.com or altavista.com, they just won't open. There may be other sites too, but so far I haven't faced this problem with other sites... I'm using google a lot, and now I have to use www.fi search engine which totally sucks... I tried Yahoo, but didn't like it...

    So, what do you reckon is the cause, is it Internat or spyware or what? I don't know exactly when the problem started, but it may have been the same time as when Internat started bugging me... Then I just now realized (and I think this is much more probable for a reason) that my sister or my dad (I dunno which) has apparently installed RealOne player a few days ago...

    Hope you can help...

    go to http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/hijackthis.zip , and download 'Hijack This!'.
    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

    It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

    it's 99%certain that you have bben hit by the qhosts trojan.

    follow advice here to fix

    Wow, looks like I'm not the only one having this problem, tons of posts here... I installed the critical IE security update that has been popping up the last few days... Now I just have to get rid of the problem, and it won't bother me again, right? Here goes:

    Make sure you "fix" these two and then post another log to confirm they are gone.


    You did have the QHOSTS.......HijackThis took care of it.The removal tool run was just to be sure.

    Yes, immediately after I sent that log to you I noticed those were still there although I checked them to be fixed. I fixed it again, did another scan and they were gone... just now I did another check and they were there again... fixed again, and they were gone... just don't seem to be able to get rid of it... it hasn't done anything bad so far...
    Oh... now those two are there again:

    Yet another fix and they were gone again... I run HijackThis again and they're back...

    NOW can I delete the backups??

    Leave the backups for now.

    This is what you want to do to get rid of pgytpgf.dll



    run hijackthis, check these two , close all browser windows & press fix checked
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [pgytpgf] rundll32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\pgytpgf.dll,Init 1
    O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [*pgytpgf] rundll32 C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\pgytpgf.dll,Init 1

    then open task manager by pressing Ctrl& Alt & delete at same time and stop the runninhg process on this file.
    pgytpgf.dll

    make sure that you have all files set to show by opening windows explorer /tools/folder options/view and make sure that show hidden files & folders is ticked and hide protected operating system files is UNticked
    then using windows explorer navigate to & delete this file.
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\pgytpgf.dll


    It is vital that you do not reboot at anytime until the file has been deleted, which can only happen once the running process has been stopped.

    After carrying out all the above steps then reboot & post a new hijackthis log to check whether you are all clear

    Hello, $teve

    Well, it kept saying windows is using this file and blah blah blah....
    I went in MS-DOS mode and deleted it. Gone! (as are the backups, I deleted them yesterday already... I got impatient.)
