hello, I have been hijacked by cws about:blank for about 3-4 days now. I installed cwshredder and although it says it fixed it, it keeps coming back. I installed hjt and removed all line entries referring to cws (please see attached) and still it comes back, I used pest control deleted all reg entries, it keeps coming back, everytime it changes the dll name and pops back up changing my bho's and with the help of the bho monitor I can see the dll and delete it, but I need to get to the source file that keeps creating these random dlls. Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you very much.

Thats a clean log..........If you have anything disabled with MSConfig,then you should enable everything and re-post your logfile.

Hello Steve

I know it is clean as well but I also know in a few hours time, the about:blank cws trojan will spring back to life with a renamed dll which I will see from the BHO monitor and delete. But so far I am unable to find the source file that seeds these dll files. That is my problem. Cleaning the effects of the recently named dll from the registry does nothing to remedy the problem. it just springs back in a few hours. How can I find the source? I need to find an .exe and blast it.

all services in msconfig services section are enabled.

Ok............as long as nothing is halted then we can work to find the problem.

Do this......open H/T and hit the "Config" tab....then "Misc Tools".you will see a "Generate Startuplist" button......post the Startuplist in your next post.If its around it will show in there.

As I predicted it became active again just now. This time the file name is kicpn.dll you can see it now in the hijack this log as below. I have been doing the same thing for the last 4 days now. Cleaning up this log and the dll itself does not clean up the trojan itself.

This has worked in several ccases, while cwshredder is being updated to deal with it

Start in Safe mode
run HJT and look at the R1 & R0 entries

and the O2 bho entries

fix all the entries with the random name dll and then still in safe mode look in windows\system32 folder for the dll name and look for all other random dlls or any .exe that were created/modified at exactly the same time and move them all to a new folder preferably not in system 32

then reboot and in 9 out of 10 cases it has cured the problem

it's difficult and messy and time consuming and if you are not sure then don't try it as deleting the wrong file can be very dangerous for the computer.

Experts are working on it and hopefully within a couple of days there should be a proper fix

once you have all the entries in a separate folder copy the folder send it to me preferably zipped to the email address listed in the spykiller site in my siganature.

once we have a lot more copies of all the files we stand a better chance of finding a cure

ok...when you tried to get rid of it before.............did you just use H/T to do it?
Did you try to find the actual.dll in safe mode and nuke it from there?
You just "fixed" its HijackThis entry yes?
