I've been having problems with my computer and I ran the sweeper and it found and deleted some trojans but it's still running really slow and the allaboutsearching toolbar still comes up and a bunch of pop up ads. Can you please look at my hijack log. Thanks.

Jason

Everything you said to do seemed to work pretty good- I finally got rid of allaboutsearching but I was wondering if you could help me with one more thing...now when I go onto my homepage zestyfind keeps coming up and my computer runs really slow when you start it up. I saw on a message someone else had posted a link you had given them to get rid of zestyfind and I tried clicking on it and I just keep getting one of those page cannot be found errors. Can you please tell me what to do to get rid of it.

Thanks for all your help
Jason

Hi, I tried everything and my computer is running alot better but I still can't get rid of that zesty find and one other thing I was going to ask you is everytime I connect to the internet it connects just fine but instead of my home page coming up I get the page that says page cannot be displayed and I have to go to internet options and then to connections and uncheck the box for proxy servers and check the one that says automatically detect settings and then it works fine but I have to do that everytime.
here's my new log. Thanks

Hey jcato,

I see a few more things that needs to be removed. Close all open windows and scan HiJack This. Place an X next to the file and click fix checked:

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {000020DD-C72E-4113-AF77-DD56626C6C42} - C:\WINDOWS\twaintec.dll (file missing)
O1 - Hosts: s.com #REMOVED ADWARE URL

Reboot

For a special Zestyfind removal tool click here:
http://www10.brinkst.../L2M/Msg121.htm
(select the appropriate tool for your version of Windows)


Also, in Internet Explorer, go to Tools->Internet Options and check to see what your homepage is. It should read http://start.earthlink.net

I got WinTools right around the time I was bitten by GAIN/Gator.
Ad-Aware and SpybotSD don't seem to know about it. It
seems to cloak itself as IEXPLORE.

C:\Program Files\Common files\WinTools\WSup.exe
C:\Program Files\Common files\WinTools\WToolsS.exe
C:\Program Files\Common files\WinTools\WToolsA.exe

They cannot be killed with the Task Manager.
In addition to removing WinTools from the registry with regedt32,
I also had to go to Add/Remove Programs to get rid of WinTools.

Thanks.
best regards,

I've attached an uninstaller (new_uninstall.exe) that seems to be working for most people with the allaboutsearching infection (LOP by C2Media). However, it comes with a warning, this uninstaller is authored by the publisher of this spyware, so use it at your own risk. :D

As always, if you need any assistance just post a new topic in our Spyware forum. <_<
