    Hi HERS, welcome to TSG.

    You don't give any indication what your problem is. I'm not seeing much on your log.

    Do you have any idea what this application is?

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [stext3ds] C:\WINDOWS\System32\stext3ds.exe

    I can't find anything on it.

    :)

    I do not know what that application is??? I'm pretty new with fixing things on my computer... I have zone alarm installed and it was trying to grant access for a program called "werule". I've never had that happen before (never heard of it ) so it kind of concerned me since I have had multiple popup-firewalls from zone alarm blocking internet access to my computer. They just keep popping up. I've been getting multiple advertisement pop ups too. I checked online to see what Werule and it didn't sound too good. I had read that someone else that had it was told to run hijackthis and send it in to someone knowledgable about computers. I had also read on this site to dowload CWshredder which I had also run. It had told me that I have a variant of "coolwebsearch trojan cws.smartsearch.2 " So now I'm not sure what to do. It also told me that the trojan was keeping cwshredder from continuing but it would go another route. ( something like that - I'm sorry I didn't write the exact words down for this one. ) Thats it. I don't know if it was able to continue. I wasn't told to do anything else and nothing appeared on the screen but windows. Thats about the best I can describe it for you. I had seen somewhere else online that someone had to go to their "folder options" in Tools and UNcheck "show hidden files & folders" - UNcheck "Hide protected operating system files and UNcheck "Hide extensions for known file types" before they ran Hijackthis. Which I did not do. Thank you for your time ! I really appreciate it and I don't know what I'd do without people like you ! ;)

    Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close all windows except HijackThis and click "Fix checked"

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [stext3ds] C:\WINDOWS\System32\stext3ds.exe

    Restart to safe mode.

    How to start your computer in safe mode

    First in safe mode 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"

    Now find and delete:

    The C:\WINDOWS\System32\stext3ds.exe file


    Go here and download Adaware 6 Build 181

    Install the program and launch it.

    First in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now and download the latest referencefiles.

    Make sure the following settings are made and on -------ON=GREEN

    From main window :Click Start then Activate in-depth scan (recommended)

    Click Use custom scanning options then click Customize and have these options selected: Under Drives and Folders put a check by Scan within archives and below that under Memory and Registry put a check by all the options there.

    Now click on the Tweak button in that same window. Under Scanning engine select Unload recognized processes during scanning and under Cleaning Engine select Let windows remove files in use at next reboot

    Click proceed to save your settings.

    Now to scan just click the Next button.

    When the scan is finished mark everything for removal and get rid of it.(Right-click the window and choose select all from the drop down menu and click Next)

    Restart your computer.


    Then go here and download Spybot Search & Destroy.

    Install the program and launch it.

    Before scanning press Online and Search for Updates .

    Put a check mark at and install all updates.

    Click Check for Problems and when the scan is finished let Spybot fix/remove all it finds marked in RED.

    Restart your computer.

    I'm going to have you do this fix in safe mode so copy these instructions to notepad first.

    Boot to safe mode and run Hijack This. Put a check by these:

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [P2P NETWORKING] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\P2P NETWORKING\P2P NETWORKING.EXE /AUTOSTART

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [paghlprh] C:\WINDOWS\System32\paghlprh.exe


    Now 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"

    Then find and delete:

    The C:\WINDOWS\System32\paghlprh.exe file
    The C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\P2P NETWORKING folder

    Here is my hijack log. :eek: I ran CWshredder and it informed me that I have a "variant of the coolwebtrojan cwssmartsearch.2 that has attempted to close CWshredder. To counter this, CWshredder is now starting with a random strng of text in the title bar. CWshredder is still functioning fine. It has not been corrupted." - I get this everytime I tried to use it. It will close on me. I keep getting zone alarm pop ups blocked internet access to my computer. I'm getting them constantly. I have deleted a few things in the highjack log that I was told, but still no luck. I have ran "Stinger" with no luck and I tried getting PepiMK's smartkiller and It wont find it on my computer when I try to open it. Any suggestions ? - I'm going to celebrate so huge when I get this out of my computer ! :)

    I have merged your new thread with the original thread. Please make all posts regarding this matter in this thread.

    There is no sign of a CWS hijack or any other malware in your log.

    What exactly is the problem now other than the fact that CWShredder is giving you that message?

    My main problem I'm having is with zone alarm giving me a ba-zillion alerts stating that they are blocking access to my computer and I can't figure out why. I get them multiple times a minute limiting my ability to do things on the comuter. The computer seems to be a little more sluggish too and is gradually getting worse. Website pages aren't loading like they used to and It's taking longer for my computer to start up it seems. A few days ago I had left my computer for a minute and when I returned there was countless numbers of blank windows I had to close out, but there was so many that I had to shut my computer down because I couldn't do anything. They kept appearing faster than I could close them out. Ever since then I've been noticing what I described up above with the zone alarm alerts blocking access to my computer. I had noticed one program trying to gain access that I had no idea what it was. It was called "werule". I had thought to look it up on the internet to see if it could be a virus because of all the wierd things going. From what I read it seems like its some kind of trojan. ??? I've tried to delete the program, werule, ( C:\WINDOWS\System32\stext3ds.exe ) file
    out of hijack this but I couldn't find it when I ran another scan. But there was another strange file that was on there and I was told to delete that. I couldn't find that one either when I ran another log.

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [paghlprh] C:\WINDOWS\System32\paghlprh.exe

    I was also told to delete p2p networking

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [P2P NETWORKING] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\P2P NETWORKING\P2P NETWORKING.EXE /AUTOSTART

    that one I could find and was deleted.

    I believe I have also deleted C:\WINDOWS\System32\chedsvcs.exe

    I have been printing out and comparing hijack this logs to find anything out of the ordinary or something that isn't matching up with the last one I printed. It seems that I'm getting something strange in The "C:\WINDOWS\System32 " area at times. But now I can't find anything.

    I don't know if I have messed something up by running virus scans before I should have and now its hidden away ready to eat my computer alive. I apologize for not knowing much about computers and I really appreciate all the work you guys do ! I'm a little delirious from being up late trying to figure this out. This is my work computer and I have a new business ( little money ) so I'm a little stressed. It's good for me though. I'll learn something. Thanks again. ;) ( I hope I gave you enough information. )

    Well first of all your log is clean now and those files are apparently gone and doing no harm.

    Secondly, your firewall is doing it's job blocking the outside access to your machine. It is normal for many attempts to be made like that. Your firewall is blocking them so rest assured that it is doing it's job.

    Thirdly, if you want to have peace of mind and be able to get something done you need to go into Zone Alarm and click on "Alerts and Logs" in the left column. Now click on the "Main" tab and at the top under "Alert events shown" set it to "OFF". You do not need to be alerted everytime an attempt is made to access your computer. IT WILL DRIVE YOU MAD!!!! I have always kept mine set to off and trusted my security programs to do their job.
