    I'm having a similar problem to BradyMon13. I've followed all of the suggestions, running Ad-Aware, spybot, rebooting, and then running spyware doctor (which includes HijackThis, I believe). I've fixed the suggested items from the logfile, but the problem still persists; my system is still infected.

    Here is the most recent logfile... any suggestions?

    Hi and welcome to TSG,

    I have split your post off into a new thread. It's not a good idea to tack onto an existing thread as you may get overlooked and it gets confusing for the people who are trying to help.

    Rescan with Hijack This, close all browser windows except Hijack This, put a check mark beside these entries and click “fix checked”.

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = C:\WINDOWS\blank.htm

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {0F9561D0-03B2-44a3-89A6-E95E417CBA25} - C:\WINDOWS\cerbmod.dll

    O2 - BHO: Explorer Class - {962F12AE-2773-4BEB-99EA-B5C3AB9A6606} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\DSMANA~1.DLL

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {B72F75B8-93F3-429D-B13E-660B206D897A} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\snim.dll

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Systems Restart] Rundll32.exe snim.dll, DllRegisterServer

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [tibs3] C:\WINDOWS\System32\tibs3.exe

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [secboot] C:\WINDOWS\System32\mszx23.exe !!

    O4 - Startup: winupdate52969676[1].exe

    O18 - Filter: text/html - {B72F75B8-93F3-429D-B13E-660B206D897A} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\snim.dll

    O18 - Filter: text/plain - {B72F75B8-93F3-429D-B13E-660B206D897A} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\snim.dll


    Then boot to safe mode (see how below), locate and delete these files and/or folders:

    C:\WINDOWS\System32\tibs3.exe - file
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\mszx23.exe !! - file
    O4 - Startup: winupdate52969676[1].exe - file
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\snim.dll - file

    How to restart to safe mode:
    http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPOR...2001052409420406?OpenDocument&src=sec_doc_nam

    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"

    Reboot and post another log please.
