My homepage has been hijacked by res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\shdocpe.dll/security.htm#subID=BSW;677 which says spyware is on my computer and has a 667 browser warning...
A toolbar now appears under IE toolbar and a whole bunch of things has been added to my favourites.
Also when i start up i get a msg about rtl70.bpl.

here is a copy of my hijack this log

First, put hijack this into program files

Use task manager (ctrl-alt-del) to end this process

C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntnut.exe


Rescan with Hijack This, close all browser windows except Hijack This, put a check mark beside these entries and click “fix checked”.


R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://find-on-the-net.com/search.htm

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\shdocpe.dll/security.htm#subID=BSW;677

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = res://shdocpe.dll/asst.htm

O2 - BHO: IE Search Toolbar Helper - {2C5175A2-ADF3-4F57-AB70-BA90FD60A383} - C:\Program Files\IESearchToolbar\IESearchToolbar.dll

O2 - BHO: Saristar - {C68AE9C0-0909-4DDC-B661-C1AFB9F5AE50} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\saristar.dll

O3 - Toolbar: IE Search Toolbar - {EB381422-F797-4A98-A266-9DC490821907} - C:\Program Files\IESearchToolbar\IESearchToolbar.dll

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Fast start] C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntnut.exe home

O9 - Extra button: Related - {c95fe080-8f5d-11d2-a20b-00aa003c157a} - C:\WINDOWS\web\related.htm

O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Show &Related Links - {c95fe080-8f5d-11d2-a20b-00aa003c157a} - C:\WINDOWS\web\related.htm

Then boot to safe mode (see how below), locate and delete these files and/or folders:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntnut.exe


How to restart to safe mode:
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPOR...2001052409420406?OpenDocument&src=sec_doc_nam

Because XP will not always show you hidden files and folders by default, Go to Start - Search and under "More advanced search options". Make sure there is a check by "Search System Folders" and "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search system subfolders"

Next click on My Computer. Go to Tools - Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and "Hide extensions for known file types". Now click "Apply to all folders"
Click "Apply" then "OK"

Then reboot and post another log please.

If you do not have an onboard antivirus program go here and Download the free edition of AVG 7

UPDATE SpyBot and download and UPDATE Ad-Aware SE Do a scan with both of them getting rid of all they find

Also do a scan with Housecall and Panda Active Scan

After doing ALL the above post another log here please
