Re: hijackthis report need expert help

What you posted is not a HJT log, but rather the HJT info... page.

Run HJT again and instead of hitting the 'info..' button, hit the 'Scan' button. After the scan completes, the scan button will be renamed to 'Save Log'. Click on the 'Save Log' button and save the log to a safe place. After it saves, it will also open the log in notepad.

In notepad, click Edit | Select all, then Edit | Copy. Paste THAT text into a reply to this thread.

With no other windows open click on fix checked button in Hijackthis.

Exit Hijackthis.

Reboot to SAFE MODE.

FAQ 8 and 9
on this page: http://www.russelltexas.com/malware/faqhijackthis.htm

Open Windows Explorer: type the word explorer at Start/Run box and click OK:

Drill on down and delete the following files and/or folders:

Folders:

C:\Program Files\COMMON Files\WinTools
C:\Program Files\MyWay
C:\Program Files\Open Site

Files:

C:\WINDOWS\ujqtyz.exe
C:\WINDOWS\web\related.htm

Exit Explorer and empty Recycle Bin.

Reboot in normal mode Windows and run Disk Cleanup: type cleanmgr at Start/Run. Scan all hard drives and check all categories at the end and click OK.

If you have any problems with Disk Cleanup completing...XP users can fix it here:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;812248

Or try this fix: http://www2.whidbey.net/djdenham/DeleteOldFiles.htm

After the final all clear is given by us you should flush your Restore Points for XP and MIllennium. That means disabling the Restore Point, rebooting to flush it, then re-enabling a new Restore Point. The reason why we need to do this is to purge the bad files hidden in System Restore which can't be cleaned by your antivirus programs.

See FAQ 12 here: http://www.russelltexas.com/malware/faqhijackthis.htm

Open Windows Explorer: type the word explorer at Start/Run box and click OK.

Navigate with your mouse through the folders in the left hand window and delete the following folder:

 

Download and run these two programs (Spybot S&D and Adaware) at the link below. Use Spybot first.

Most of the Internet baddies can be killed by a one-two punch with Spybot and Adaware assuming these three factors are achieved:

1. Latest version
2. Configured correctly for running options
3. New definitions from update feature

Chris has posted an excellent tutorial by dgosling on how to run Spybot S&D and also how to enable customized deep scanning functions for Adaware. Once you set these options they will be retained for future scans by Adaware.

Follow the directions in this detailed guide for Spybot and Adaware...print out the directions in the custom scan tutorial as a reference while you set these options for the custom setup of Adaware. These custom settings will be retained for future custom scans so don't go nuts thinking you have to do this every time you run it! It may take you five minutes to set them up, but it's worth it.

http://www.cjwd.demon.co.uk/spybot-adaware.html

Please note the free Spybot 1.3 does have a slight bug...it detects some DSO exploits falsely. Hopefully an upgrade will fix this.The problem is not serious and should not deter people from using Spybot.

Reboot and browse a bit, exit IE 6 and post a new Hijackthis log.

Re: hijackthis report need expert help

Okay, I did everything you told me to do, and I am still having the same problem. No matter what I try, I cannot visit yahoo. I can visit any other page now from Internet Explorer besides Yahoo. And that is my homepage. Do you have any other ideas?
