I'm at the end of my rope-My homepage keeps changing to about:blank, and random web sites will take over from time to time-as well as pop ups from the same sites. I've tried Spybot and ad aware, I'm also using McAfee Virus scan and windows keeps telling me my virus protection is bad (oh yeah, can't do windows update for some unknown reason). Someone please tell me I don't have to torch this computer!!! Thanks!

Click here to download CWSinstall.exe. Click on the CWSinstall.exe file and it will install 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.

First you need to unzip (extract) Hijack This and move it to a permanent folder. It will not function properly when run from the zip folder or the Temp folder.

You need to create a new folder in My Documents and name it Hijack This. Right click on the HijackThis.zip file and choose "Extract all" and extract it to the Hijack This folder you created. That way it can create and restore backups if needed. HJT will store the backups in the same location that it is run from.

After you have done that, rescan with Hijach This and post another log please.

First go to Add/Remove programs and uninstall WareOut if it is there.

Also click here to download CWSinstall.exe. CWSinstall.exe file and it will install CWShredder, but don't run it yet either.

Set your folder options to show hidden files like so:

Go to Start > Search and under "More advanced search options".
Make sure there is a check by "Search System Folders" and "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search system subfolders"

Next click on My Computer. Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and "Hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
Click "Apply" then "OK"
