Hi all,

my home page has been hijacked by that searchv page. I downloaded adaware, hijackthis, spybot and followed all instructions you gave to the rest of the guys. When i am not connected to the net everything is cool, but after I connect and reboot it starts all over.

Here is the log from hijackthis:

there is normally either a msupdate or sys.reg entry, sometimes HJt has been unable to see them so
Can you try this please.
Go to Start > Run > type regedit then press OK
Navigate to :
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
Right click on that key and select export.(that makes a copy of the key) Save it somewhere your desktp maybe.....
find it, open that file in notepad and copy & paste the results here.

Tnx Derek:D

Do this in order:

1) Open Internet Explorer -> Tools -> Internet Options -> delete cookies, delete files (select off-line content), clear history. Then click ok and exit Internet Explorer.


2) Read http://tomcoyote.org/SPYBOT/index1.html then download and run SpyBot. Make sure to get the updates for SpyBot before you have it scan your computer. After you scan and remove anything SpyBot finds, make sure to click the Immunize button and OK and then click the Immunize button in the right pane.


3) Run one of the following free Anti-Virus programs here:

http://housecall.trendmicro.com - I found this to work the best.

4) Re-post HiJackThis log.
