Hey folks,

as you may see I'm new and of course I'm here because I'm in need of your help. The SearchV pest has arrived on my system and I want to get rid of it. I've added my hijackthis.log so please tell me what to do.

THANK YOU

You have 2 diferent versions of Coolwebsearch, which is something I've rarely seen before

first Run CWshredder from
http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/cwshredder.zip
then

run hijackthis, tick any entry below that has been left, doublecheck to make sure you haven't missed any, close all browser windows & press fix checked

reboot &
delete the following files if there
C:\WINDOWS\Web\win.def
C:\WINDOWS\default.css
C:\WINDOWS\sys.reg
C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Alex\Anwendungsdaten\winshow\ .....delete the entire winshow folder
search for & delete tapicfg.exe probably in C:\windows or C:\windows\system32


download AdAware 6 181
Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the "webupdate".

Then ........

Make sure the following settings are made and on -------"ON=GREEN"
From main window :Click "Start" then " Activate in-depth scan"

then......

click "Use custom scanning options>Customize" and have these options on: "Scan within archives" ,"Scan active processes","Scan registry", "Deep scan registry" ,"Scan my IE Favorites for banned URL" and "Scan my host-files"

then.........

go to settings(the gear on top of AdAware)>Tweak>Scanning engine and tick "Unload recognized processes during scanning" ...........then........"Cleaning engine" and tick "Automaticly try to unregister objects prior to deletion" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot"

then...... click "proceed" to save your settings.

Now to scan it´s just to click the "Scan" button.

When scan is finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it.

then
Download Spybot - Search & Destroy from http://security.kolla.de


After installing, first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.
Next, close all Internet Explorer and OE windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds that is marked in RED.

then post a new hijackthis log to check what is left
