Re: Search Engine Hijack

GH,

That's looking better, but we still have a persistant file running and don't know whether it's hostile yet.

Locate this file on your harddrive [  C:\WINNT\System32\xujpigl.exe  ] using "Search...". Then right-click on in and select "properties". Next, click the "version" tab, and post back info on:

  • comment
  • company
  • internal name
  • original file name
  • product


Have HiJackThis fix this entry:

Re: Search Engine Hijack

Mike,

No "version" tab under properties for "xujpigl.exe". Under program, logo is  MS DOS

for the file to fix under Hijackthis, here's the results:

Re: Search Engine Hijack

GH,

There's something running on your system that's setting the search page.

The R1 entry I already know about (...dogpile.com...). I'm thinking it's an un-identified virus/ trojan; possibly xujpigl.exe, and was hoping to get more information on that file. If that's a 're-infector' then it'll either reload more 'baddies', or keep resetting your search page.

If you know what that is, let me know, and we should be done.

-

To go back to your original post, about the home page, try fixing this:

Re: Search Engine Hijack

Mike,
 
Have no clue what it could be and that in itself is so frustrating. As for the other item to fix; tried  fixing, pulled up dogpile to check and still the same problem.
 
So you think I may have an unidentified virus\trojan that even Norton nor Spysweeper can detect or remove?

Re: Search Engine Hijack

GH,
 
Yes it is, very frustrating. That's the program that I believe is causing the problem.

Have you tried any of the following yet to see if they can single it out:
 
1.  www.trendmicro.com and click "Free Online Scan".
2.  AdAware SE Personal.
3.  Spybot S&D.

Re: Search Engine Hijack

Mike,

Downloaded and scanned w/ trendmicro.com (housecall). Said found and deleted "TROJ_AGENT-1". Problem still exists though. Ran Liveupdate (norton anti-virus) and still could not update definitions.

In Norton Firewall found this in the log viewer, is the "user" below me or this virus you were trying to help me eradicate?

Details:

The user has created a rule to "block" communications
Outbound UDP packet
Local address,service is (192.247.136.129,0)
Remote address,service is (192.168.0.1,domain(53))
Process name is "C:\WINNT\System32\xujpigl.exe"

Don't give up on me yet,

GH

Re: Search Engine Hijack

GH,
 
Have you tried dropping the firewall then trying LiveUpdate? I believe you can checked the firewall rules to see if that specific program has access, or if the Symantec site is blocked; check under the programs and sites section for the firewall.
 
-
 
What file was specified as being deleted for TROJ_AGENT-1?
 
-
 
Also, is the Symantec problem related to your initial post concerning you homepage, or did it just occur?
 
Mike.
