Hi, you all were quite helpful to me a while ago when my computer was hijacked by search.exe. Well, now my husband's Dell is having problems. He cannot get his regular homepage to load, it loads this instead res://mshp.dll/index.html#37049 and it takes him to a Home Search page. He cannot figure out how to get rid of this. Should I have him d/l the Hijack this program? If so, please post instructions on what to do again. Thanks in advance for your help!!

Best to run HiJackThis and post a scan. Follow these steps:

First, create a folder in C:\Program Files and label it HiJackThis. This is where you will download the executable file. This is also the folder where your HJT backups will be stored. Click Here to download the file.

Close all windows, including this and any other browser windows. Launch HJT and click the Scan button. When the scan is finished, the Scan button will have changed to Save Log. Click that and save the log to your HJT folder. DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING YET. Most of the listed items are harmless or even essential. Wait for recommendations from someone trained in HJT log file interpretation.

In the saved log file window... In the toolbar at the top of the window under Edit, select Select All. Copy (Ctrl+C) the text and paste (Ctrl+V) it into a reply in this thread.

Download CWShredder.exe. Close all windows, including browser. Launch CWShredder and click the Fix button (not Scan). Let it do it's thing.

Reboot your computer

CWShredder should take care of the majority, if not all, of the problem. But just to be sure we have cleaned out all that we can using the available tools, please go through the following procedure:

*Note.. Spybot will have other uses later.

Next, download Spybot S&D. Install Spybot, open it and click the Search for Updates button. When updates are found, put a check mark next to all and click the Download Updates button. Now click the Search & Destroy icon in the left pane, then the Check for problems button at the bottom of the window. When the scan completes, check all the items in RED, then click the Fix Selected Problems button.

Reboot your computer

Next, download AdAware. Install the program and launch it.

First in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now and download the latest reference files.

Make sure the following settings are made and on -------ON=GREEN

From main window :Click Start then Activate in-depth scan (recommended)

Click Use custom scanning options then click Customize and have these options selected: Under Drives and Folders put a check by Scan within archives and below that under Memory and Registry put a check by all the options there.

Now click on the Tweak button in that same window. Under Scanning Engine select Unload recognized processes during scanning and under Cleaning Engine select Let windows remove files in use at next reboot

Click Proceed to save your settings.

Now to scan just click the Next button.

When the 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 and click Next)

Reboot your computer.

Post a new HJT scan
