Download CWShredder:
http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/cwshredder.zip
Unzip, run and hit the ->fix tab to fix all found problems

CWShredder takes advantage of seurity holes in windows so you should install all critical as well as hotfixes available from windows update.


Then repost a fresh Hijack this log .

Download 'Hijack This!'. http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ and save it to a folder on your desktop.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log, load it in Notepad, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.

Hi,

The nasty in this case is:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://searchexe.com/searchbar.html
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://searchexe.com/searchbar.html
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://searchexe.com/searchbar.html
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://searchexe.com/searchbar.html
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://searchexe.com/searchbar.html
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://searchexe.com/searchbar.html


This can be sorted out by Hijackthis and here is a link for manual removal and some information on the critter. I recommend you wait....Do not remove anything, until some-one with more knowledge on this matter replies
