    Hi - Somehow, during surfing, I came across a website, that continually changes my default website to Iwantsearch, or something like that. I have restarted, gone to Windows update (why I don't know) and continually gone to internet options, to change it back to my original homepage.

    How can I get rid of whatever is changing my default website? Thank you

    Marilyn

    Hi marilynmc11

    Welcome to TSG! :)

    I am moving your thread to the Security forum.


    Please do this:

    First create a permanent folder somewhere like in My Documents and name it Hijack This.

    Now Click here to download Hijack This. Download and save the file to the Hijack This folder you just created.

    Click on Hijackthis.exe to launch the program.

    Click the "Scan" button when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.

    The log should open in notepad. Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.

    DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required. Someone here will be glad to advise you on what to fix.

    Restart to safe mode.

    How to start your computer in safe mode

    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"

    Now find and delete these files:

    C:\Documents and Settings\mmcinnis\Application Data\obwr.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\conscorr.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\wupdt.exe
    C:\WINNT\pezmbof.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\l?***.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\dkzlxe.exe
    c:\windows\system32\wingvw32.exe

    Delete these folders:

    C:\Program Files\Winad Client
    C:\Program Files\Web_Rebates
    C:\Program Files\BullsEye Network
    C:\Program Files\ISTsvc

    Also in safe mode navigate to the C:\Windows\Temp folder. Open the Temp folder and go to Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

    Next navigate to the C:\Documents and Settings\mmcinnis\Local Settings\Temp folder. Open the Temp folder and go to Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

    Finally go to Control Panel > Internet Options. On the General tab under "Temporary Internet Files" Click "Delete Files". Put a check by "Delete Offline Content" and click OK. Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button. Click Apply then OK.

    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.



    Turn off System Restore:

    On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
    Click Properties.
    Click the System Restore tab.
    Check Turn off System Restore.

    Mouse over Accessories, then System Tools, and select System Restore.
    In the System Restore wizard, select the box next the text labeled "Create a restore point" and click the Next button.
    Type a description for your new restore point. Something like "After trojan/spyware cleanup". Click Create and you're done.
