I've run the latest Ad-aware and CWShredder and this is my Hijack this log. My browser is completely hijacked, can't get to any site. Please Help.

Thanks,
Kristen

First thing to do is move hijackthis.exe into a folder, don't run it from your desktop. Make a folder on your hard drive, like c:\hjt.


Run HJT again and check:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = c:\searchpage.html

Close all applications and browser windows before you click "fix checked".

Thanks cybertech. I'd tried "fixing" all the searchpage lines but had not correctly identified the BHO msole.dll as the trouble. Thanks again.

To solve the Searchpage browser hijack problem, all you have to do is this:

1. Start the registry editor. This is done by clicking Start then Run. (The Run dialog will appear.) Type regedit and click OK. (The registry editor will open.)
2. Delete 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE \ Classes \ CLSID \ {FF1BF4C7-4E08-4A28-A43F-9D60A9F7A880}', if it exists.
3. Delete 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer\Browser Helper Objects \ {FF1BF4C7-4E08-4A28-A43F-9D60A9F7A880}', if it exists.
4. Exit the registry editor.
5. Restart your computer.
6. Start Windows Explorer and delete:
%SystemDir%\mshelper.dll
%SystemDir%\mshelper_beta.dll
Note: %SystemDir% is a variable (?). By default, this is C:\Windows\System (Windows 95/98/Me), C:\WINNT\System32 (Windows NT/2000), or C:\Windows\System32 (Windows XP).

I eventually found the answer for myself in another site. Although I run McAfee and Adaware 6, neither could even find it.
