Hi, I'm about to pull out my last hair on this one...Please help *whimper*

I have the MXTargeting dilemma I've seen posted here before though I can not get it corrected. I have shut off system restore, deleted all browser helper objects, unregistered the files pertaining to, etc. The file mxtarget.dll returns up on connection.

Even when this file is recently "not found" on my system, I will still recieve the additional windows on the toolbar. It also has taken over my clipboard. Everytime I open a new window or go to a new address via the address bar (not link) my clipboard will be replaced with jibber--logging my actions.

I can usually get Hijack This to fix the problem until next startup.

My log is follows:

I have the add-on for VX2 on Ad-Aware that I've heard recommended for this. It comes up clean. I also have Spybot Search & Destroy and SpySweeper.

You can begin by rescanning once again with hijack then insert a check next to each of the following. Then close all browser windopws and click " Fix checked"

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

O2 - BHO: MxTargetObj Class - {0000607D-D204-42C7-8E46-216055BF9918} - C:\WINNT\mxTarget.dll

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ivozitgh] C:\WINNT\ivozitgh.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Windows SA] C:\Program Files\WindowsSA\omniscient.exe

O4 - Global Startup: updater.lnk = C:\Program Files\Common Files\updater\wupdater.exe


Then reboot your system into safe mode http://dotcomsecurity.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=55


Open windows explorer, find then delete:
C:\WINNT\System32\kspqwg.exe
C:\WINNT\ivozitgh.exe
C:\Program Files\WindowsSA
C:\Program Files\Common Files\updater\wupdater.exe

Reboot, rescan with hijack then post an updated logfile please.

Thanks so incredibly much, that seemed to have fixed the [visible] problem, although, I only found the file kspqwg.exe out of all the files to manually delete.

You can also remove these entries:

O4 - Global Startup: updater.lnk = C:\Program Files\Common Files\updater\wupdater.exe
O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {2CDE1A7D-A478-4291-BF31-E1B4C16F92EB} - (no file)


Also, as for the files/folders that you didn't find - try enabling viewing of hidden/system files and searching for them again.
