    Close all applications and browser windows before you click "fix checked".



    Download LSPFIX
    • Double click on the program to run it. This will fix your internet connection.
    • Check the box that says "I know what I'm doing".
    • Remove webhdll.dll only that one!

    Post a new hijackthis log and let me know if you have your internet access back.

    Thanks so much for volunteering your time! We need more folks who are willing to do this!

    1) Should PIOLET remain? It was not in the list of 15 that i checked?
    2) I will have to download the LSPFIX to a thumbdrive on my 'puter. I found with Spybot/or Adaware (one of those) i can''t RUN them on the screwed up puter as it needs to update, and w/o the Intenet connx, no go.
    3) any issues with doing this??

    THANKS AGAIN!! Meow..... times SIX

    LSPFix is what may restore your internet connection.

    I'm not sure where you see PIOLET ?

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Piolet] C:\Program Files\Piolet\Piolet.exe SILENT in the HJT log.

    Not sure if webhdll.dll was checked. The file unzipped, and files open and ran.
    Used jump druve. Internet back on. Updating Spybot, etc.
    WHAT ELSE DO YOU RECOMMEND i put on this machine. It is used by a few not too intelligent teenagers......... (THEY ARE NOT MINE!! :)
    Any way to block the P2P, etc?
    Thanks again,
    Lois

    Both of these allow peer to peer file sharing: ARES and Piolet.

    I would look in add/remove programs and remove them both!


    If you have to allow these teenagers to use the machine I would put them on limited accounts so they can not download. You might also consider installing SpywareBlaster 4.1.
    This program is free for home users. Just update it each time you run them, just like anti-virus programs it get updates in the detection files.

    Nice tutorial can be found posted on bleepingcomputer.com SpywareBlaster Tutorial

    Are you having any problems now?

    I would fix this one too:
    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://as.weatherstudio.com/dp/searc...uSXZJQR8BXYW/A==

    with hijackthis if you did not set that.


    [​IMG] Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version of Java components and upgrade the application. Beware it is NOT supported for use in 9x or ME and probably will not install in those systems

    Upgrading Java:
    • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 7.
    • Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
    • Click the "Download" button to the right.
    • Select your Platform and check the box that says: "I agree to the Java SE Runtime Environment 6 License Agreement.".
    • Click on Continue.
    • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation (jre-6u7-windows-i586-p.exe) and save it to your desktop. Do NOT use the Sun Download Manager..
    • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
    • Go to Start > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
    • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
    • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
    • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java version.
    • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
    • Then from your desktop double-click on the download to install the newest version.

    I had tried to remove both ARES & Piolet thru add/remove. I just checke din Programs and they are gone.
    This is ALSO in the HJT log:

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [ares] "C:\Program Files\Ares\Ares.exe" -h
    SHould i remove ANY ARES or PIOLET listings in the HJT log?

    They are not my teens. If they were they would be living in the dark, with no electricity to run a computer!! ;)

    Will update the Java, now.

    Any other suggestions? You have been wonderful, it was worth the wait.
    I will request the parents make a donation (After all Geek Squad would've cost them over $200!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!);)

    You can fix both of those entries with hijackthis. I prefer to have programs removed first before just ripping them out! ;)

    $200.00 :eek: That's terrible! You could almost buy a new machine for that!

    Happy I could help you out!

    Be sure to flush your system restore and set a new restore point when you are happy with the way it's running!
