hi,

It was on April 16 that I was helped to finally remove allaboutsearching. I kept up to date with my system updates, installed adaware, spywareblaster, and zonealarm. However, my zonealarm trial ended and just like that I was infected again. I remembered till today that I never did activate the XP firewall or Road Runner firewall. Please help again. I have Road Runner for internet service and an hp pavillion ze4400. Should I follow the same previous procedures? I ran a new HJT file and here it is.

Spywareblaster should have kept you protected, however it needs to be updated ocassionally too.

Reboot in safe mode (by tapping F8 at startup and select safe mode from the menu).

Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.
C:\PROGRA~1\README~1\JUMP BLUE.exe
C:\Program Files\Common files\WinTools\WToolsA.exe
C:\Program Files\Common files\WinTools\WToolsS.exe
C:\Program Files\Common files\WinTools\WSup.exe
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = allaboutsearching.com
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = www.zestyfind.com/
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch = res://C:\PROGRA~1\Toolbar\toolbar.dll/sa
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName =
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,SearchAssistant = http://www.websearch...spx?tb_id=50032
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,CustomizeSearch = res://C:\PROGRA~1\Toolbar\toolbar.dll/sa
R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {8952A998-1E7E-4716-B23D-3DBE03910972} - (no file)
O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {339BB23F-A864-48C0-A59F-29EA915965EC} - (no file)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WinTools] C:\Program Files\Common files\WinTools\WToolsA.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [WNSI] C:\WINDOWS\System32\wnscpsv.exe

Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):
C:\PROGRA FILES\README~1\ <- this folder (name abbreviated)
C:\Program Files\Common files\WinTools\ <- this folder
C:\WINDOWS\System32\wnscpsv.exe <- this file
C:\PROGRAM FILES\METAST~1\ <- this folder (name abbreviated)

Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log.

Bummer <_<

Look in add/remove programs and see if you have WinTools listed. If so, uninstall it.
