    Hello TSG friends,

    I have many problems with my computer and I hope you guys can solve my problem. Whenever I tried to open popular websites such as hotmail, my browser gets hijacked and moved to the ilxt.info website. I cannot get the windows service pack update 2 because the spyware is evil and redirects my browser to ilxt.info if i go to www.windowsupdate.com. I download and tried many adware removal software including, CWShredder, Ad-Aware, Spy-bot, Aboutbuster. After finding Coolwebsearch and fixing the problem, it would only reappear shortly after.

    Here is the log

    Hello ABBaller

    This is what I suggest you do first.

    Make sure you have the up-to-date versions of Spybot and
    Ad-aware. All are free and available below.

    Download Spybot, install and update. Then download Ad-aware, install, and update.

    Spybot:
    Go to Start > Programs >Spybot > Search & Destroy and choose Spybot S&D

    Close ALL windows except Spybot S&D
    Click the button to "Search for Updates" and download and install the Updates.
    Next click the button "Check for Problems"
    When Spybot is complete, it will be showing "RED" (RED) entries "BLACK" entries and "GREEN" (GREEN) entries in the window
    Put a check mark beside the RED (RED) entries ONLY.
    Choose "Fix Selected Problems" and allow Spybot to fix the RED (RED) entries.

    Ad-Aware FULL SCAN:

    Install the program and launch it.

    First in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now then click Connect and download the latest reference files.

    From main window :Click Start then under Select a scan Mode tick Perform full system scan.

    Next deselect Search for negligible risk entries.

    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)

    Before restart, Empty Recycle Bin.

    Restart your computer.

    Post a new HijackThis log.

    Hi ABBaller

    Welcome to TSG! :)

    Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close ALL windows except HijackThis and click "Fix checked"

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.windowws.cc/hp.htm?id=9

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {467FAEB2-5F5B-4c81-BAE0-2A4752CA7F4E} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\l3bl2lpb5r6.dll

    O20 - AppInit_DLLs: hnz2hoezpvw.dll


    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:\Windows\bad3074.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\hnz2hoezpvw.dll

    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.

    Go to Start > Run and type %temp% in the Run box. The Temp folder will open. Click 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.


    Empty the Recycle Bin
