I've been working with brendandonhu's excellent tutorial on HijackThis and untangled a few of my own with apparent success. Now a colleague has asked me to sort out his problem which looks a lot like a hijack issue. I've got the log and had a look through it but since it's not my machine I'm about to kill, I'd like some confirmation that I'm on the right lines!

Most of what the log shows I can rationalise... he's running McAfee, PowerQuest's Second chance and a few other things. The entries which I think should *not* be there are...

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page = c:\windows\SYSTEM\blank.htm
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,First Home Page = http://rd.yn.cometsystems.com/r/cc3...85584000;1063640833000/http://www.wethere.com

but there are some other things I'm not sure about...

R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - _{CFBFAE00-17A6-11D0-99CB-00C04FD64497} - (no file)
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {F7F808F0-6F7D-442C-93E3-4A4827C2E4C8} - C:\WINDOWS\NEM213.DLL
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {8F4E5661-F99E-4B3E-8D85-0EA71C0748E4} - C:\WINDOWS\WSEM214.DLL

Can anyone explain these and tell me if I'm on the right track. Have I missed anything obvious!


The full log follows...

then reboot & delete the following files or folders

C:\Program Files\Internet Optimizer
C:\WINDOWS\NEM213.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\WSEM214.DLL

then open IE/tools/options/programs and press reset web settings

Any of the O16 DPF entries can be removed because if a program needs them they will prompt you to download them again

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Internet Optimizer] "C:\Program Files\Internet Optimizer\optimize.exe"

re-boot into safe mode and delete:
C:\WINDOWS\NEM213.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\WSEM214.DLL
C:\Program Files\Internet Optimizer [entire folder]

see here about internet optimizer:
http://www.doxdesk.com/parasite/InternetOptimizer.html

the o2 entries are attributes of it.

o16 items can be "fixed" with no harm,even if its a legit item.
