See if this helps.

Put checks in ALL the 01 entries in the HijackThis Scanlog.

Also check:

O2 - BHO: WinShow module - {6CC1C918-AE8B-4373-A5B4-28BA1851E39A} - C:\WINDOWS\WINSHOW.DLL


>> Close all browser windows and click "fix checked".

Then find and delete: c:\windows\winshow.dll

Whenver i open an Internet explorer window, the status bar says:Detecting Proxy settings. And just stays there and doesn't open any website. Sometimes it opens but its when i turn off the cable modem and turn it on again when the dial up connection tries to connect.

I did what you told me but the same thing keeps happening.

looking at your log, you have both pcccillin firewall & sygate firewall running, that is not a good idea as each will block the other, you only need one firewall

some ISP have inline proxies and that is often detected by IE

open IE/tools/options/connections/and press lan settings/untick use a proxy server and see if that helps, but pcccillin pop check uses an inbuilt proxy to check email and that might be the problem

I agree and also think you have a problem with a PC-Cillin conflict.

Possibly the "Poptrap" component, but it's hard to say. I've seen quite a few PC-cillin issues now.

Leave Sygate's firewall in place temporarily at least and run msconfig and try unchecking all PC-cillin entries under the startup tab long enough to test. If the problem does not persist, re-enable components selectively to see when it starts.

Be careful with your browsing and e-mail habits during any period in which you are without antivirus protection.

I would also leave either one or the other firewall running at all times.

I don't see any indication of a proxy configuration in the Scanlog, but go to Internet Options > Connections, and under the "settings" tab for your connection, make sure "use proxy server" and "use configuration script" are NOT checked. (I believe this might be under LAN, for a DSL connection)

If "automatically detect settings" is not checked, try checking it.

Good point, those entries in theory should be pointing to your ISP's domain name servers. But that doesn't look like it is.

Yes, definitely.

Sometimes these will get recreated, but I wouldn't expect that to.

Also post a fresh HijackThis Scanlog if the problem is not resolved so we can see if everything that should have been removed, has been.

Well if the problem is still occuring and you have followed all the previous instructions to ensure there is no proxy service being configured in your Internet Options > Connections settings, I'm not sure what else there is.

You still have two firewalls going which is not good practice.

I would run msconfig and UNcheck EVERY entry under the Startup tab except the Sygate firewall, ScanRegistry and StateMgr and see if you still have the problem.

You can also try "fixing" this entry with HijackThis, as I'm not sure it is installed by your ISP:

O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\VxD\MSTCP: NameServer = 216.127.92.38

By the way, I have seen some cases where HijackThis does not detect all the entries in the Hosts file. So it might be a good idea to find hosts in the Windows directory and rename it ghosts

It is not a default startup. Ignore hosts.sam and lmhosts.sam, these are sample files and not the active one, which has no extension.

The problem you are seeing is caused by a virus that was identified Sep 30th as the QHOSTS-1 Virus, (AKA Trojan.Qhosts)

I just removed it from my computer - had me baffled for 2 days.
:mad:

For more info check: (Partial quote below)
I used the remover, and that did not do the job. I had to turn off the system restore for XP and do the manual removal
http://us.mcafee.com/virusInfo/default.asp?id=description&virus_k=100719
(quoted @ bottom), and perform the critical updates before it was wiped out. :D
I did notice from the removal program that the viral file was sitting in an internet temp folder under my wife's login (on XP) - Thanks Honey!

More info see Symantic Security Response:
http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/trojan.qhosts.html

*****(Quote from Symantic Security Response)*****
Trojan.Qhosts is a Trojan Horse that will modify the TCP/IP settings to point to a different DNS server.

Trojan.Qhosts cannot spread by itself. For a computer to become infected, you would have to open an HTML page that contains code, which allows it to open a viral HTML file on the target computer, so that the script can create and run the malicious executable.

Symantec Security Response has developed a removal tool to repair damage from infections of Trojan.Qhosts.

Symantec Security Response has received reports that visiting a specific page on www.fortunecity.com caused a popup to be displayed that redirected the visitor to a different web page. Being redirected to the web page appears to have caused the trojan to be downloaded to a visitor's system and then executed. Reports also state that the threat exploited the Internet Explorer Object Data Remote Execution vulnerability on several victims' computers to execute itself.

Microsoft has released a cumulative patch for this vulnerability, available here.

***** Removal Instructions That Worked for Me *****
Removal Instructions

All Windows Users :
Use current engine and DAT files for detection and removal.

The following EXTRA.DAT packages are being made available prior to the regularly scheduled weekly DAT release (working with EXTRA.DAT files ).
