My HiJack This Log - Win 98 SE - Please Help

Hi,

Symptoms were mainly slow internet access and Internet Explorer homepage being hijacked to various sites (searching about casinos, home loans etc). I have run Stinger, used ZoneAlarm to block IE from accessing the web and now use FireFox/Mozilla. I have deleted some files that I know to be malicious. No more problems, but I know the bad files are still there.

HJT Log is as follows:

Re: My HiJack This Log - Win 98 SE - Please Help

heres a breakdown of that from hijackthis.de:

 

http://hijackthis.de/logfiles/7f0eaf17b1ce43a0031c6e000e94c1f3.html

 

so far, get rid of:

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,(Default) = http://www.crooder.com/search/

 

and that seems to be it!!!  the rest seem fine.... if you're unsure ry running a scan with counterspy www.tinyurl.com/4cuz6   <- this will give you a file download box for counterspy

 

you should also run a scan from trendmicro - http://housecall.trendmicro.com

Johnny ,
You at least have the Cool WebSearch trojan and you need a special program to clean this up.

We can't do this in this fourm, please go to the HJT forum next door.

Re: My HiJack This Log - Win 98 SE - Please Help

Funky,

i believe the "dis-service" that zbestwun was referring to was your advocating the particular automatic hijacklog scanner/analyzer that you did.   while it's results might be "interesting" to look at and ponder... while it might be an interesting "starting point"... the simple fact of the matter is that this particular analysis site is 'faulty', in that it will generate both "false positives" and "false negatives"... that is to say, it will tell you some entries are bad when in fact they are really good, and conversely, it will overlook some really bad entries, indicating/implying that they are good.   Consequently, by blindly accepting their analysis as if it were accurate, the average person can get into trouble.   that being the case, it's better to leave the matter of HJT analysis to the experts in the HJT forum 

Free Internet Security - WOT Web of Trust       Use OpenDNS       MalwareBytes Anti-Malware


Windows 7 Pro SP1 (64-bit), avast! v17 Free, MBAM3 Pro, Windows Firewall, OpenDNS Family Shield, SpywareBlaster, MVPS HOSTS file, MBAE Premium, MCShield, WinPatrol PLUS, SAS (on-demand scanner), Zemana AntiLogger Free, IE11 & Firefox (both using WOT [IE set to WARN, FF set to BLOCK]), uBlock Origin, CryptoPrevent.


[I believe computer-users who sandbox (Sandboxie) are acting prudently.]

Re: My HiJack This Log - Win 98 SE - Please Help

Well ok then...  I can fully understand and agree with that.... (I suppose I shouldn't have linked the log)
I agree with you that it does generate false results.. But it is a good, quick starting point in the sense that it lists them nicely and gives some info (speaking of that I missed an IE search page)....  and you are right , you should never trust the results fully.... (hence the link for counterspy and housecall)
and it should always be reviewed by someone that knows....
 
I find the results from that analysis easier to read than just the straight log.....
 
So... again I agree that the log should be read by an expert.... but since I didn't know there was a hijackthis forum(and neither did he) and no one had answered him yet..... at least I got him started on something.
 
So then I apologize for linking a site that provides false negatives and positives (research is always a good thing to do with a program like hijackthis)
 
I just had to know what the CAPS and red was about .... I've been in this industry for a few years now and have been supporting spyware for over 9 months and have never been spoken to about my results.... Not like that...  My fault for replying to a post first thing in the morning and not reviewing it...
 
thanks for the clarification..
