    • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
    • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.

    Nothing malicious shows up in the log so please do this.

    Download the trial version of Ewido Anti-spyware from HERE and save that file to your desktop. When the trial period expires it becomes freeware with reduced functions but still worth keeping.



    • Once you have downloaded Ewido Anti-spyware, locate the icon on the desktop and double-click it to launch the set up program.
    • Once the setup is complete you will need run Ewido and update the definition files.
    • On the main screen select the icon "Update" then select the "Update now" link.
    • Next select the "Start Update" button, the update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
    • Once the update has completed select the "Scanner" icon at the top of the screen, then select the "Settings" tab.
    • Once in the Settings screen click on "Recommended actions" and then select "Quarantine"
    • Under "Reports"
    • Select "Automatically generate report after every scan"
    • Un-Select "Only if threats were found"

    Close Ewido Anti-spyware, Do NOT run a scan yet. We will do that later in safe mode.


    • Reboot your computer into Safe Mode now. You can do this by restarting your computer and continually tapping the F8 key until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode then hit enter.
      IMPORTANT: Do not open any other windows or programs while Ewido is scanning as it may interfere with the scanning process:
    • Launch Ewido Anti-spyware by double-clicking the icon on your desktop.
    • Select the "Scanner" icon at the top and then the "Scan" tab then click on "Complete System Scan".
    • Ewido will now begin the scanning process. Be patient this may take a little time.
      Once the scan is complete do the following:
    • If you have any infections you will prompted, then select "Apply all actions"
    • Next select the "Reports" icon at the top.
    • Select the "Save report as" button in the lower left hand of the screen and save it to a text file on your system (make sure to remember where you saved that file, this is important).
    • Close Ewido and reboot your system back into Normal Mode.


    Please go HERE to run Panda's ActiveScan
    • Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button
    • A new window will open...click the Check Now button
    • Enter your Country
    • Enter your State/Province
    • Enter your e-mail address and click send
    • Select either Home User or Company
    • Click the big Scan Now button
    • If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it
    • It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)
    • When download is complete, click on My Computer to start the scan
    • When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location. Post the contents of the ActiveScan report


    Come back here and post a new HijackThis log along with the logs from the Ewido and Panda scans.

    then get CWShredder 2.19 .....here...

    http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/CWShredder-Download-8114.html


    get these tools and update them...run them in safe mode...if you don't know how then go here for the lowdown...


    http://reviews.cnet.com/5208-6121-0.html?forumID=45&threadID=22053&messageID=274875


    after updateing and starting in safe mode run the tools...have them delete anything they find....

    you can also do free online scans here

    write down any names that spysweeper finds...

    then this online scan

    then get ccleaner and run it...the default setting are fine...

    these tools and online scans should be run before rerunning HJT and reposting the log
    this will speedup the cleaning process for the log pros...

    These are not bad entries. Your Smitfraudfix log was negative.

    The problem is probably either Zone Alarm or Spybot. Try shutting down Zone alarm and see if you can change your home page.

    I have always used zonealarm and it has never had this problem before.

    I already have all the software listed, plus AVG. Spybot comes up with some cookies, thats about it. As does the rest.

    What else could it possibly be? :(
