We have been hijacked by this awful website, and have not been able to get rid of it. We recently got spyware and adware, which cleaned up a lot of the problems, but there are 5 other pop-up websites that are killing our computer. We have windows 98. Help!!!

Download CWShredder:
http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/cwshredder.zip
Unzip, run and hit the ->fix tab to fix all found problems

CWShredder takes advantage of seurity holes in windows so you should install all critical as well as hotfixes available from windows update.


Then repost a fresh Hijack this log .

Download 'Hijack This!'. http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ and save it to a folder on your desktop.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log, load it in Notepad, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.

I know this may be a really stupid question, but how do you get a hijack this log?

I did what you said, and it worked! Thank you so much! This is the first time I have used this site, but it definitely won't be my last. For those of us that are computer illiterate you are a life saver.

Marci, mobo seems to be offline right now, so I'm going to pitch in. There are a few other things in that Scanlog which need to be taken care of.

First, please move HijackThis to its own PERMANENT folder so you can restore a deleted entry if necessary. This may not be possible running it from the c:\windows\temp folder

After you have done that, run HijackThis and put checks in the following entries, close all browser windows and select "fix checked":

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = about:blank
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.coolsearch.biz/
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = about:blank

F1 - win.ini: run=C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SERVICES\WMPLAYER.EXE

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {5321E378-FFAD-4999-8C62-03CA8155F0B3} - (no file)
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {000020DD-C72E-4113-AF77-DD56626C6C42} - C:\WINDOWS\TWAINTEC.DLL
O2 - BHO: ShowSearch module - {E2DDF680-9905-4dee-8C64-0A5DE7FE133C} - C:\WINDOWS\APPLICATION DATA\IEKI\MSSEARCH.DLL (file missing)
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {83DE62E0-5805-11D8-9B25-00E04C60FAF2} - C:\WINDOWS\2_0_1browserhelper2.dll
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {9C691A33-7DDA-4C2F-BE4C-C176083F35CF} - C:\WINDOWS\DOWNLOADED PROGRAM FILES\CONFLICT.2\BRIDGE.DLL

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [xpsystem] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SERVICES\WMPLAYER.EXE
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [mdspgbef] C:\WINDOWS\mdspgbef.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [systray] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\A.EXE

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [xpsystem] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SERVICES\WMPLAYER.EXE
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Hdrb] C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\unbw.exe


>>> Reboot.
>>> Next, do a Find Files for wmplayer.exe

How many copies are there? Is there one in C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player? Right click on the one in c:\windows\system\services and select Properties > Version. Does it have a Microsoft copyright? If not delete it.

The other files which I've bolded above should be found and deleted. You may need to ensure "show all files" is enabled in Folder Options > View to find them.
