Hello,

My Google Search is being hijacked. Each time I click on a google link I'm wisked away to some other search engine web site. The IP adressing for the redirected site is 85.255.114.122. each time I click a link it redirects me a different search site like RPICamp.com and Robogold.biz to name a couple. But, after I click the very same link on Google search three separate times I'm finally directed to the google link.

Here's my Hijacj This Log:

You will need to make a copy of these instructions because you have to disconnect from the internet to complete the fix. Either print them out or copy and paste them into Notepad.

Preparation

1) Download Fixwareout.exe by LonnyRJones from one of these two locations, and save it to your Desktop:

http://downloads.sub.../Fixwareout.exe
http://www.bleepingc.../Fixwareout.exe

2) Download the trial version of Ewido anti-spyware from here and save it to your Desktop.
If you already have this program installed, skip to Updating Ewido: below.

* Please note that these instructions are for the new version - Ewido anti-spyware. If you have the old version - Ewido anti-malware and it is the:
  • paid-for version - you will need to go here and obtain an updated license code before you upgrade.
  • free version - you will need to uninstall it and reboot before installing the new version.
Double click the ewido-setup file to begin installation and follow the prompts.
When the program has been installed, and you click the Finish button, Ewido anti-spyware will open.
  • Updating Ewido:

    By default Ewido is configured to update automatically so, if you have an active internet connection, it should do so following installation. If you are unsure whether or not it has done so, do the following:
  • Click the Update icon at the top and under "Manual Update" - click the Start update button.
  • Either Ewido will update or inform you that no update was available.
  • If you cannot access the internet with the infected PC, or you are having problems updating, you can download the signatures file from here.
    Once you have installed Ewido, double click ewido-signatures-full-current.exe to update it.

    Disabling the Resident Shield:
  • By default the Resident Shield is active but as it may interfere with the process of cleaning your PC, it will need to be disabled.
    (When the PC has been cleaned you can activate the shield again, if you wish.)
  • Click the Shield icon at the top and under "Resident shield is..." - click active.
  • This should now change to inactive.

    Changing Recommended Actions
  • Click the Scanner icon at the top and then click the Settings Tab.
  • Under "How to act?" click Recommended actions and select "Quarantine" from the menu.
You can now close Ewido anti-spyware.

Ewido anti-spyware is designed to be used to both scan for and remove malicious files and also to run in real-time alongside, but not replace, your existing anti-virus program to give an added layer of protection.
Both the Resident Shield and Automatic Updates will only be available for the thirty day trial period, after that Ewido will revert to a stand-alone scanner which you can keep and manually update for free and use in a similar way to Ad-Aware SE Personal, Spybot S&D etc.
Should you wish to benefit from the real-time protection, you will need to upgrade the program. To do this, simply open it and click on the Buy now button.


3) You will need to set Windows to show All Hidden Files and Folders.
Instructions can be found here.
** These files are hidden to stop you accidentally removing something important.
It is advisable to hide them again after fixing your computer. **

4) You will need to know how to boot into Safe Mode.
Instructions can be found here.

Please Note: You will need to remain connected to the internet during this fix.

Removal

1) Run HJT and click on Open the Misc Tools section.
Click on delete a file on reboot...
Copy and paste the following into the "File name:" text box and then click Open:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\dmtjx.exe

When you are asked "Do you want to restart your computer now?", click OK.


Your PC MUST reboot fully to delete the file!

2) Double click Fixwareout.exe to start the Fixwareout Setup Wizard
  • Click Next > Install.
  • Ensure that the box to the left of Run fixit is checked.
  • Click on Finish.
  • Follow the prompts.
  • You will be asked to reboot your computer - please do so. Your system may take longer than usual to load - this is normal.
  • When your system reboots, follow the prompts.
Afterwards HijackThis should launch by itself - if it does not, start it manually.

Click on 'Do a system scan only' and place a checkmark in the boxes to the left of the following entries, by clicking on them:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [dmtjx.exe] C:\WINDOWS\system32\dmtjx.exe

CLOSE ALL OPEN WINDOWS AND BROWSERS - EXCEPT HJT and click on Fix checked

3) Go to Start > Control Panel >Network Connections. Right click your default connection, usually Local Area Connection or Dial-up Connection if you are using dial-up, and left click on Properties.
* Make a note of the settings before you change them just in case you need to put them back how they were.
Double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item and select the radio button that says Obtain DNS servers automatically. Click OK twice.

4) Go to Start > Run, enter CMD and click OK.
  • At the Dos Prompt Screen, type in cd\ and then press <ENTER>.
  • Now type in ipconfig /flushdns and then press <ENTER>. (notice the space after ipconfig)
  • Close the command prompt window.
5) Boot into Safe Mode.

6) Navigate to the C:\Windows\Temp folder and delete all the files that you find there.
Do this for all Usernames.

7) Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Temp and delete all the file7s that you find there.
Do this for all Usernames.

8) Go to Start > Control Panel > Internet Options and under Temporary Internet files, click on Delete Files...
Check the box to the left of 'Delete all offline content' and then click on OK.

9) Ensure that ALL open Windows / Programs / Folders are closed and then run Ewido anti-spyware.
  • If it is not already selected, click the Scanner icon at the top and then select the Scan Tab.
  • Click "Complete System Scan"
  • While the scan is in progress the PC should be left otherwise idle - so if you fancy a cuppa, now's the time to put the kettle on!
  • When the scan has completed, any threats that Ewido has detected will be displayed.
  • Click the Apply all actions button at the bottom.
  • When Ewido has finished, it will display the message "All actions have been applied".

    Saving a report:
  • Click the Save Report button at the bottom left and the "Reports" window will open.
  • The content of the scan report will be displayed in the right hand pane and a copy will be automatically saved as Report-Scan-date-time.txt into the C:\Program Files\ewido anti-spyware 4.0\Reports folder.
  • You will need to post a copy of this report into your next reply, so if it is more convenient, you can save another copy of this report elsewhere:
    Click the Save report as button and select a destination by clicking the down arrow to the right of the Save in: text box and then click Save.
Close Ewido Anti-Spyware.

10) Boot into Normal Mode.

Post a new HJT log, the Ewido log, the contents of the logfile C:\fixwareout\report.txt AND a description of how your PC is running.
