dvk01 said he would help me here, so here's my problem: coolsearch.biz has become my homepage and I can't get rid of it. I've also gotten some kind of porn thing that shows up in my taskbar.

Help would be GREATLY appreciated. Here is my hijack log:

do a computer search (start>search) go to prefrences and search in hidden files and folders. then search on your computer for TV media and delete EVERYTHING in Tvmedia

Now judging by this log you are not under a firewall nor anti virus. I recommend Norton anti virus pro and zone alarm pro.

I used the shredder, and this came up:

Done!
Removed from your system:
- CWS.Yexe
- CWS.Jksearch

Is that all I have to do? I saw a reply that dvk01 made elsewhere that was much longer.

"do a computer search (start>search) go to prefrences and search in hidden files and folders. then search on your computer for TV media and delete EVERYTHING in Tvmedia"

when I start searching it eventually reaches a point when the computer is barely making a sound. I think it's not searching so I click on "Stop." and it freezes I think. I dunno, I don't fully understand the above line in quotes, so maybe I missed something?

Here's my latest hijack log:

You have the peper trojan.

Download the file from the link below and run it. Make sure that you are online while you run the file.
http://www.zerosrealm.com/downloads/uninst.exe

Have you tried running Ad-aware and spybot? It doesn't seem like you have.

Download the program from the link below
http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=506

Then, configure it like said on the page below
http://www.lavasoftsupport.com/index.php?showtopic=40554

Remove all the items that it finds.

You had several different cws hijacks amongst other problems

I am not convinced we have gotr all the cws ones yet but lets see

Some of this will be repeating what others have advised but it puts it all in one place for easy reference

Start by downloading & running the peper trojan removal tool from the spykiller website in my signature, You must be online and connected to the internet while running it. It will flash up, say downloading temp files then close with no warning. That means it is done.
Reboot

thenm go to add/remove programs in control panel and uninstall TVmedia if it's there

then reboot again

Run hijackthis, tick these entries listed below and ONLY these entries, double check to make sure, then make sure all browser & email windows are closed and press fix checked

O21 - SSODL: SARU - {FF5D8CC8-DE01-4964-89F1-648E43271415} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\mssaru.dll




Reboot into safe mode by following instructions here: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001052409420406
then as some of the files or folders you need to delete may be hidden do this:
Open Windows Explorer & 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 untick "hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
Click "Apply" then "OK"

Delete these files

C:\WINDOWS\System32\mssaru.dll
C:\WINDOWS\System32\Pcn67i0.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\services\wmplayer.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\bcbhost.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\QboUdPz.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\Acp1M.exe

and Delete these folders

C:\Program Files\TV Media\

then go to C:\Documents and Settings\USER NAME\Local Settings\Temp and select everything in that folder and delete it

as XP will not let you delete files less than 24 hours old as it thinks it might need them please also do this
while in the temp folder, select view and select details.
then right click a blank part and select arrange icons by, and select show in groups and modified, that will give a list of all files in date order with today at the top of the page.
select all the files/folders except the today ones and delete them all.

and select EVERYTHING in C:\windows\temp except temporary internet files, cookies and history folders and delete all that as well

1) Open Control Panel
2) Click on Internet Options
3) On the General Tab, in the middle of the screen, click on Delete Files
4) You may also want to check the box "Delete all offline content"
5) Click on OK and wait for the hourglass icon to stop after it deletes the temporary internet files
6) You can now click on Delete Cookies and click OK to delete cookies that websites have placed on your hard drive

then
Reboot normally &

Download and unzip or install these programs/applications if you haven't already got them. If you have them, then make sure they are updated and configured as described

Spybot - Search & Destroy from http://security.kolla.de
AdAware SE from http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download


Run Sybot S&D

After installing, first press Online, press search for updates, then tick the updates it finds, then press download updates. Beside the download button is a little down pointed arrow, select one of the servers listed. If it doesn't work or you get an error message then try a different server

Next, close all Internet Explorer and OE windows, press 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds that is marked in RED.

then reboot &

Run ADAWARE

Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the "webupdate".
the current ref file should read at least SE1R6 30.08.2004 or a higher number/later date
Then ........
click the "Scan" button. and select full scan

When 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) then press next and then say yes to the prompt, do you want to remove all these entries. You can safely ignore any MRU entries though and not delete them

reboot again

then post a new hijackthis log to check what is left

just a couple of entries that need fixing

I am not convinced that the O21 file is actually gone as several times recently HJT says it's missing, but it is there, just HJT can't see it

Download and install APM from: http://www.diamondcs.com.au/index.php?page=apm


Run hijackthis, tick these entries listed below and ONLY these entries, double check to make sure, then make sure all browser & email windows are closed and press fix checked


R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {20EC3D2D-33C1-4C9D-BC37-C2D500688DA2} - (no file)
O21 - SSODL: SARU - {FF5D8CC8-DE01-4964-89F1-648E43271415} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\mssaru.dll (file missing)

Then start APM.
In the upper window select explorer.exe
In the lower window find and rightclick C:\WINDOWS\System32\mssaru.dll
Select Unload DLL and click OK on the prompts that follow.

Reboot into safe mode by following instructions here: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001052409420406
then as some of the files or folders you need to delete may be hidden do this:
Open Windows Explorer & 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 untick "hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
Click "Apply" then "OK"

Delete these files

C:\WINDOWS\System32\mssaru.dll

reboot normally and post a new log please to check if it has stayed gone

If neither you or APM find the mssaru.dll then don't worry. That is good and it means it was got the first time around, but with the devious tricks these cws hijackers pull I like to double check

When I use Hijack to fix those last two I get this message:
