    Select and fix these.

    Your running processes seem fine.
    Any extra information on your symtoms would be appreciated.

    Also i recommend you disable qicktime tasks and realscheduler as they are a waste of memory.
    Glad if that helped.

    Thanks for your help and quick response. I followed your directions and I really hope it worked. My sypmtoms were that my "homepage" was always hi-jacked, when I signed on AIM my explorer would load with the hijacked homepage along with several pop-ups that stated my system was infected with Ad-Ware, I would run adware and spybot and it would fix the problem for a few hours but then it was back to the hijacked explorer.

    Thanks Again!!

    Well is it working so far?
    PS if it isnt or is only slightly fixed just tell me and try to give more details. While a hjt log is always good its always better to include your symptoms.

    I'm afraid that simply fixing those entries with Hijack This will not cure this. This is a CWS Hijack.

    Click here to download CWShredder. Close all browser windows, click on the cwshredder.exe then click "Fix" (Not "Scan only") and let it do it's thing.

    When it is finished restart your computer.

    Come back here and post another Hijack This log and we'll get rid of what's left.

    Your log is showing a different variant of CWS now! :eek:

    Please do this:

    Click here to download StartDreck.

    UnZip the startdreck.zip file first. DoubleClick: 'StartDreck.exe'
    First click on the config button.
    Now click the Unmark all button
    Put a check by these boxes only:
    *Registry->run keys
    *Registry->Browser helper objects
    *System/drivers> Running processes
    hit >ok.

    Now click the Save button to save that log.

    Copy and Paste the contents of that log back here and await further instructions.
