    Looks like I've been hijacked. My default home page has been reset to http://here4search.com/hp.htm?id=632. I had similar problems a couple of months ago. Up until now everything was just fine. Here is a copy of my latest hijack this. Can you review this and let me know what I should do?


    Thanks

    first off if you dont use these then stop them from starting.. as a fellow compaq user i can tell you that it doesnt hurt to get rid of them....


    O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Works Calendar Reminders.lnk = ?
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [MoneyAgent] "c:\Program Files\Microsoft Money\System\Money Express.exe"
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [CPQEASYACC] C:\Program Files\Compaq\Easy Access Button Support\StartEAK.exe


    ok now lets look at your other problems

    'fix' these

    unless you use msn when you start up you dont need to have this on start up
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [MSMSGS] "C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe" /background

    dont know what in the world this is
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [vuyu5so7ob] C:\WINDOWS\yr68kg4my0.exe

    O4 - Startup: PowerReg SchedulerV2.exe

    Stop Running Processes:

    Kill these running processes with Task Manager:
    profilepath+\start menu\programs\startup\powerreg scheduler.exe
    profilepath+\start menu\programs\startup\powerreg schedulerv2.exe
    systemroot+\start menu\programs\startup\powerreg scheduler.exepowerregschedulerv3.exe
    then
    Remove Files:

    Remove these files (if present) with Windows Explorer:
    profilepath+\start menu\programs\startup\powerreg scheduler.exe
    profilepath+\start menu\programs\startup\powerreg schedulerv2.exe
    programfilesdir+\powerreg
    systemroot+\start menu\programs\startup\powerreg scheduler.exepowerregschedulerv3.exe


    I hope this helps :)

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'm not exactly computer literate when it comes to this stuff. Could you provide a few more basic steps on how to execute the suggestions you've made.

    Thanks for the help.

    Okay, open HJT, and place checks by the following lines, then click on fix.

    O4 - Startup: PowerReg SchedulerV2.exe

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [vuyu5so7ob] C:\WINDOWS\yr68kg4my0.exe


    Next, restart to safe mode, turn on hidden/system file viewing (instuctions on the bottom of post) and navigate to the following directory and delete the following file:
    C:\WINDOWS\yr68kg4my0.exe

    How to boot to safe mode - http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001052409420406
    How to enable viewing of hidden/system files - http://www.xtra.co.nz/help/0,,4155-1916458,00.html

    Then please reboot and post another HJT log.

    Sorry for the long wait - I was on vacation.

    Anyways, Go Start>Run>type in msconfig and hit enter.
    Click on Startup
    Uncheck the PowerReg entry, then hit apply then okay.

    You're all set.
