    I followed the instructions given for those experiencing "Win Min" problems. However, they are different problems, and I was upset to find that this morning everything was as screwed up as before.this http://searchweb2.com hijack reasserts itself as the starting page everytime it's changed, and sometimes crashes new windows. The instructions said something about a scanlong, and I assume that's a HijackThis scan (searching my harddrive for "scanlog" didn't turn up anything). As such, here's what HijackThis turns up.

    Go to http://computercops.biz/downloads-cat-14.html , and download the latest version of CWShredder by Merijn Bellekom, the creator of HijackThis.
    Run it, press 'Fix', and allow it to fix all it finds.
    And remember to click "Fix" (Not "Scan only")
    After its done its thing hit the"How do i prevent reinfection" tab....
    In particular pay attention to the patches for the operating system regarding the ByteVerify vulnerability which is how you got infected in the 1st place.

    When it is finished restart your computer.
    =====================================

    Download AdAware 6.181 from here: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/
    Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the "webupdate".
    Then ........on the same page you will see a list of plug-ins,download the VX2 cleaner.

    Make sure the following settings are made and on -------"ON=GREEN"
    From main window :Click "Start" then " Activate in-depth scan"

    Then......

    Click "Use custom scanning options>Customize" and have these options on: "Scan within archives" ,"Scan active processes","Scan registry", "Deep scan registry" ,"Scan my IE Favorites for banned URL" and "Scan my host-files"

    Then.........

    Go to settings(the gear on top of AdAware)>Tweak>Scanning engine and tick "Unload recognized processes during scanning" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot"

    Then...... click "proceed" to save your settings.

    Now to scan it´s just to click the "Scan" button.

    When 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)

    Now re-boot...

    Then
    Download Spybot - Search & Destroy from http://majorgeeks.com/download2471.html

    After installing, first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.
    Next, close all Internet Explorer and OE windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds that is marked in RED

    Run an online antivirus check from at least one and preferably 2 of the following sites....
    http://security.symantec.com/default.asp?
    http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
    http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
    http://www.ravantivirus.com/scan/

    Re-boot again.

    Then post a new HijackThis log to check what is left.


    And when this is all clean...
    Consider installing the following:

    SpywareBlaster v 3.0 and SpywareGuard v2.2, to prevent Active-X drive-by installations, as well as provide real-time browser hijacking protection: http://www.wilderssecurity.net/index.html

    IE-SPYAD, a registry file that adds a long list of known "sites" to the Restricted Sites of your Internet Explorer: https://netfiles.uiuc.edu/ehowes/www/resource.htm

    ;)

    I followed your instructions to the "T". Time will tell if everything has worked out. Right now, Panda ActiveScan 5.01 has been scanning my computer for viruses for 3 and a half hours now. As it stands, here's what HijackThis turns up.

    I also took the liberty of clearing my Temprorary Internet Files, History, and resetting my internet explorer settings to default. One development has happened since I started treating the problem in the manner prescribed. When my computer turns out, whether it was rebooted or simply turned on, immediately lexplorer crashes because of LESS BAT.exe. In fact, it has crashed five times since I rebooted my computer (I've editted this post to contain the correct name of the .exe program "LESS BAT" now that Panda finished). It will carry on this way, and usually error once as I shut down. THis only happened, again, once I started fixing my computer the way you instructed. Do you have any idea what "LESS BAT.exe" is, where it came from, or how to deal with it?

    Once I posted the post above, I shut down the computer. It'd been on for 14+hours dealing with this thing, and needed a break, as it had been badly lagging. This is the first time I have turned it on since then, and everything is back to its hijacked-self. I'm having all the problems I was having before, only now LESS BAT.exe crashes every few minutes as well. I need some ideas.

    I went through and deleted "LESS BAT.EXE" and all of its manifestations, and that has been taken care of. I downloaded toolbarcop, and followed your instructions, and searchweb2 just won't go away. Everytime I restart/turn on the computer, it's back again.
