    I have read the posts regarding this and I have run the hijaker and will attach the list to this message.

    Since it changes with each computer, I'm having problems identifying what needs to be fixed and deleted.

    Can you please help me?

    Hi nyteowl

    Welcome to TSG! :)

    I am pasting your log in the thread. It is easier to check that way. I'll post my recommendations momentarily.

    First Click here to download cwsserviceremove.zip and unzip it to your desktop and have it ready to run later.
    ___________________________________________________________________________

    Click here to download CWShredder. Do Not run it yet. Download it to the desktop and have it ready to run later.

    ____________________________________________________________________

    Click here to download AboutBuster created by Rubber Ducky.

    Unzip AboutBuster to the Desktop then click the "Update Button" then click "Check for Update" and download the updates and then click "Exit" because I don't want you to run it yet. Just get the updates so it is ready to run later in safe mode.
    _____________________________________________________________________

    Now go ahead and set your computer to show hidden files like so:

    Because XP will not always show you hidden files and folders by default, 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"
    ______________________________________________________________________

    Sign off the internet and remain offline until this procedure is complete. Unplug your modem or disconnect the cable or phone line. Copy these instructions to notepad and save them on your desktop for easy access. You must follow these directions exactly and you cannot skip any part of it.
    ______________________________________________________________________


    Click Start > Run > and type in:

    services.msc

    Click OK.

    In the services window find Network Security Service.
    Rightclick and choose "Properties". On the "General" tab under "Service Status" click the "Stop" button to stop the service. Beside "Startup Type" in the dropdown menu select "Disabled". Click Apply then OK. Exit the Services utility.
    ______________________________________________________________________

    Restart to safe mode.

    How to start your computer in safe mode


    Perform the following steps in safe mode:

    ____________________________________________________________________

    Turn off System Restore:

    On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
    Click Properties.
    Click the System Restore tab.
    Check Turn off System Restore.
    Click Apply, and then click OK.
    Restart your computer.



    Go here and do an online virus scan.

    Be sure and put a check in the box by "Auto Clean" before you do the scan. If it finds anything that it cannot clean have it delete it or make a note of the file location so you can delete it yourself. Housecall will detect the leftover files from this hijacker.



    This hijacker is known to alter or delete certain files so check this out please:

    Download the Hoster from here . UnZip the file and press "Restore Original Hosts" and press "OK". Exit Program.

    If you have Spybot S&D installed you will also need to replace one file.
    Go here and download SDHelper.dll. Copy the file to the folder containing your Spybot S&D program (normally C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy)

    Check in the C:\Windows\system32 folder to be sure you have a file named Shell.dll. If you do not have one, go to the C:\Windows\system32\dllcache folder.
    Find shell.dll and right click on it. Choose Copy from the menu.
    Open the System32 folder and right click on an empty space in the window. Choose Paste from the menu.


    control.exe may have been deleted.
    See if control.exe is present in C:\windows\system32

    If control.exe isn't there, go here, and download control.exe per the instructions at the site.

    IMPORTANT!: Please check your ActiveX security settings. They may have been changed by this CWS variant to allow ALL ActiveX!! Reset your active x security settings like so... Go to Internet Options > Security > Internet, press 'default level', then OK.
    Now press "Custom Level."
    In the ActiveX section, set the first two options ("Download signed and unsigned ActiveX controls) to 'prompt', and 'Initialize and Script ActiveX controls not marked as safe" to 'disable'.



    When you are sure you are clean turn System Restore back on and create a restore point.

    To create a restore point:

    Single-click Start and point to All Programs.
    Mouse over Accessories, then System Tools, and select System Restore.
    In the System Restore wizard, select the box next the text labeled "Create a restore point" and click the Next button.
    Type a description for your new restore point. Something like "After trojan/spyware cleanup". Click Create and you're done.

    Thank you, everything seems to be cleaned up now.

    Where did this come from and how do I keep it from reinfecting my computer? If it does, or if it infects one of my other computers, how do I go about finding the files that need to be repaired or deleted?

    Thank you so much! (y)
