I've read some of the threads and installed and ran HJT. The amount of time that I have spent on this is just silly. Can you provide some direction on removing the hijacker? As you can see, the startup list is significantly reduced. The R0 and R1 entries are the hijacker. What program is generating these entries? I have removed them many times only for them to come back.

Download CW Shredder:

Open and hit the ->fix tab to fix all found problems

Then rescan with hijack, insert a check next to the following followed by closing all browser windows and clicking "fix checked"

Then reboot, rescan again with hijack then post a fresh logfile.

Thanks mobo for the info. I booted and immediately ran the scan. Checked the items you listed and hit Fix. The items were removed. However, the hj is still there somewhere. During the fix, an error occurred. It is listed first before the scan log. I closed HT and then reopened it and the R0 and R1 entries came back.


An unexpected error has occurred at procedure: modBackup_MakeBackup(sItem=O21 - SSODL: System - {DA6046FE-9E3D-40D1-B6F7-5017A36AAABD} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\system32.dll)
Error #62 - Input past end of file

Please email me at [email protected], reporting the following:
* What you were doing when the error occurred
* How you can reproduce the error
* A complete HijackThis scan log, if possible

Windows version: Windows NT 5.01.2600
MSIE version: 6.0.2900.2180

Download the tool about:Buster created by Rubber Ducky. http://www.downloads.subratam.org/AboutBuster.zip

Unzip AboutBuster to the Desktop and have it ready to run, but don't run it yet.

Now sign off the internet and remain offline until this procedure is complete. Copy these instructions to notepad and save them on your desktop for easy access.

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

Next run aboutbuster. Again remain offline. Double click aboutbuster.exe, click OK, click Start, then click OK. This will scan your computer for the bad files and delete them.

Once the tool is done scanning, copy the log and save it to paste back here in your thread.

Restart your computer and post the report from AboutBuster and a new Hijack this log.
