Please help. I have searched other posts here but still can't fully delete azesearch items and reset google as my search tool in Internet Explorer. I have tried following steps from other posts but whenever I try to search through google, google only displays ad related/unrelated searches, I imagine yahoo searches will be the same from reading other posts. Unfortunately I ran across azesearch the other day and my browser has not been the same since. I have downloded HijackThis and AVG. Below is my Hijack this log.

I have run Windows Update, AVG, HijackThsi and Ad-Aware, except I don't know what exactly what I should tell Ad-Aware to delete/remove from my computer - should I post a log of what Ad-Aware finds?
So do I also need to downlaod/run CWShrdder as well as Spybot S&D?
Sorry for all the questions I have really tried to do all this myself but have had no luck

JobsEye,

Yes go ahead and remove what ever Ad-Aware finds. You should also run CWShredder and Spybot S&D as well.

You can post an Ad-Aware log after we look over your HJT log.
I'll let you know.

Make sure to update these programs before scanning.

Once you have done this post back a new HJT log by using Add Reply

Thanks,

JobsEye,

OK, a few items we need to address:
Please print out these instructions for a reference, you wont be able to view them once we boot into Safe Mode.

First did you put these entries in your HOSTS file? (see below)
Hosts: 69.50.166.12 www.go.com
Hosts: 69.50.166.12 go.com

Next:
Download CleanUp
Install the program, dont run it yet, we will later.

Scan with HJT and place a checkmark next to the following items:

If you did not place these in your HOSTS file go ahead and check these as well
O1 - Hosts: 69.50.166.12 www.go.com
O1 - Hosts: 69.50.166.12 go.com
O1 - Hosts: 69.50.166.12 go.com

O2 - BHO: AddressBar Class - {1474CE44-8057-4AE3-8F3E-ED37C7C63D8A} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\iasad.dll

O9 - Extra button: WeatherBug - {AF6CABAB-61F9-4f12-A198-B7D41EF1CB52} - C:\Program Files\AWS\WeatherBug\Weather.exe (file missing) (HKCU)

O16 - DPF: {56336BCB-3D8A-11D6-A00B-0050DA18DE71} (RdxIE Class) - http://software-dl.r...ip/RdxIE601.cab
O16 - DPF: {62475759-9E84-458E-A1AB-5D2C442ADFDE} - http://a1540.g.akama...meInstaller.exe

Close all browsers and open windows except HJT and then click Fix Checked

Enable show hidden files and folders:

* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View Tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.

Reboot into Safe Mode, you can do this by tapping the F8 key while your system starts up.

Using Windows Explorer search for and remove the following folders/files if found:C:\WINDOWS\system32\iasad.dll <-- File Only
Start CleanUp
When CleanUp starts go to the Options button (right side of CleanUp screen)
Uncheck cookies
This is optional, if you leave the box checked it will remove all of your cookies.
Click OK
Then click on the CleanUp button. This will take a short while, let it do its thing.
When asked to reboot system select No
Close CleanUp

Reboot your system and post back a new HJT log by using Add Reply

Thanks,

ok I followed the instructions, when I rebooted into Safe mode I did not find "C:WINDOWS\system32\iasad.dll", I did find "C:WINDOWS\system32\ias" but I DID NOT delete it. I hope this is right. Here is my latest HijackThis log:

My last question - assuming I am done - is how do I reset my "Search" button in Internet Explorer to default back to Google? (right now it is using "MSN Search") Thanks

JobsEye,
I will get back with you shortly on changing the IE search back to Google. It has been awhile.

Once I do, I will post some further reading.

Thanks,

JobsEye,
To reset IE to search Google do the following:

Click on Search Button then when the side tab window opens click on customize.
You can reset your search preferences in that window.

You log looks good. If you experince any issues please post back and we will have a look.

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:

Detect and Remove Programs:
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.
Prevention Programs:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • IE/Spyad <= IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
Other necessary Programs:
  • AntiVirus Program<= An AntiVirus program is a must! Whether it is a free version like AVG or Anti-Vir, or a shareware version like Norton or Kapersky, this is a must have.
  • Firewall<= A firewall is definatley a must have. Two good free versions are Sygate and ZoneLabs.
  • More Secure Browser<= Internet Explorer is not the most secure and best browser. There are safer and better alternatives available. I recommend Firefox, however Opera is OK as well.
Be sure to also keep up with Windows and IE updates.

Windows security and critical updates.

Internet Explorer security and critical updates.
http://www.microsoft.../ie/default.asp

And also see TonyKlein's good advice
So how did I get infected in the first place? and AntiSpyware Net's spyware article: Spyware, Adware, Malware: What it is, how it got on my computer, how to get rid of it, and how to prevent it.

Thanks,
rstones12

when I go to the "customize" bar it does not give me an option for google just a bunch of others - Yahoo, AOL Search, MSN Search (which is now the default), Lycos, Excite, AltaVista, etc. I guess I can live without it, it was just convenient, ya know? Thank you for all your help, I will defintely be making a donation, although its hard to put a price on the value of your help, thank you sooo much! Since running all the cleanup programs it freed up so much disk space and my computer is running faster and smoother. Thank you again!

JobsEye,
You are welcome. I will look around and see what I can find for making your search button Google.

OK here you go, just found it.

Hope that helps.

Thanks,
