    We have been hijacked and CWShredder, Adaware, Spybot, BPS have all given it a try. I cannot find this little bug that takes us to a weird search page everytime we log on to the net. It sends us wherever it wants to. PLEASE HELP. I have enclosed my HIJACK THIS log.

    thanks

    Hi:)
    Two things you can try with this......

    Lets see if we can prevent the CWS hijackers reinfecting you try this
    The workaround seems to be install a good firewall......lists here: http://www.wilders.org/firewalls.htm If you haven't already got one and block these ranges of ports, both incoming and outgoing 209.66.114.0-209.66.115.255 and 81.211.105.0-81.211.105.255
    That stops the known CWS servers responding......or the hidden files on your computer updating. This works sometimes but not always.....but it's a help. The problem with this approach is that some good sites might also be blocked.
    Then when we have a guaranteed working cure for it we can advise how to fully remove it.

    Then..........
    Go to http://computercops.biz/downloads-cat-14.html , and download the latest version of CWShredder by Merijn Bellekom, the creator of Hijack This.
    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.

    OR.......
    You can fix those entries but mostly they will be back in no time..........you have a CWS infection that at this point in time has no fix....manual or automatic.We have been working on this one for weeks now with not much sucess.
    My advice now is to download an alternative browser such as Opera www.opera.com or Mozilla Firefox http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/
    Both are free and both are better than IE and are less prone to hijacking.
    Keep an eye on whats happpening with this new CWS variant at TSG but leave IE in the box till we get a definate fix.

    ;)
