    Another Hijack problem


    We went through this before and the reply from TomMyBoy worked awesome but now my neighbour has done something else again and has the same problem again where the homepage is hijacked an always changes to about:blank.

    Once again we have run Shredder, Spybot, Ad-aware, etc. and fixed/quarantined/deleted what was obvious but no luck.

    Below is the HijackThis log (created from a HijackThis download of a few weeks ago) and I appreciate any help.

    Thanks
    Wayne

    Hi Wayne,

    This CWS infection is proving one of the worst to remove and keep off your machine. Let's fix it this way first:

    Copy the text inside the quote box to Notepad, and save in a location of your choice as remove.reg (make sure you save as type: 'all files')

    Doubleclick Remove.reg, and answer yes when prompted to add its contents to the Registry.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PROTOCOLS\Filter\text/html]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PROTOCOLS\Filter\text/plain]
    Restart your computer. Please download CWShredder from Here

    Run it, Press "Check for update" (update if necessary) press 'Fix', and allow it to fix all it finds.

    Next, run Hijack This once more, repost to this forum thread, and please show us a fresh log.

    Thanks Tom,

    I have did that and have posted a fresh log below.

    I really would like to get this fixed as the neighbour is sending me HijackThis logs daily now. One thing I have noticed is that the ???.dll that is obfuscated is different each time. For example...this log is angio.dll...in other logs I have seen pod.dll, bclica.dll, jbn.dll, etc. Last week, when I was over at his place, I cleaned up 4 different dll's that were showing over the previous 4 days in the logs...over the past 4 days the above 3 plus the one below have shown up in the Hijack This logs. Is there something else that I should be deleting along with the DLL's or should I just do a WinXP refresh of the OS.

    Thanks
    Wayne

    This CWS varient keeps changing names. Here's the first part of the removal process:

    Download this zip.

    http://tools.zerosrealm.com/pv.zip
    Please unzip it to the desktop. It will not work if you run it from inside the zip.

    After unzipped go to the desktop. Open the pv folder. Double click on the runme.bat

    A dos window will open. Please select option 1 for explorer dll's by typing 1 and then pressing enter.

    Notepad will open with a log in it. Please copy and paste the log into this post.

    OK...Attached is the resulting log. Hopefully it tells you something. The log text exceeds the 10000 char limit which is the reason it is attached instead.

    I want to say Thanks for your help Tom.....you have been wealth of information!

    Cheers,
    Wayne

    From the chunk of the log that you sent I could not find it.

    Please check the log for this string:
    61c00000 61440

    If it's there.....

    Please download TheKillbox from here: http://download.broadbandmedic.com/VbStuff/KillBox.zip

    Unzip the files to a folder, then double-click on Killbox.exe to run it. In the "Paste Full Path of File to Delete" box, copy and paste the following:

    (full path of file from above next to the 61440) EG:c:\windows\system32\blabla.dll

    Don't click any of the buttons though, instead please click on the Action menu and choose "Delete on Reboot". On the next screen, click on the File menu and choose "Add File". The filenameand path should show up in the window. If that's successful, choose the Action menu and select "Process and Reboot". You'll be prompted to reboot, do so.

    When you're back in windows, please run the latest version of cwshredder.

    Please download CWShredder from Here

    Run another PV log an see if the string is gone.

    If so, post a new HJT log.

    Tom
