KarenMarshall,

Hello! and welcome to G2G forums.

===============

When we're done cleaning off your system, I'd recommend that you install all the Critical Windows Updates available from Microsoft, upto Service Pack 1. This will help to make your system more secure and prevent many 'problems' from reoccuring in the future.


===============

Download Hoster from here Unzip, install the program to your desktop.

===============

Download, unzip to your desktop CWShredder and run it, then:

1. Click "Check For Update"

(If an update isn't available, skip to step #4.)

2. Click "Click here to Download the update".
3. When the new version has been downloaded, click "Save".
4. Click "Fix ->"


===============

Run HiJackThis and click "Scan", then check(tick) the following, if present:


R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer,SearchURL = http://searchforfree.info/browser/
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://searchforfree.info/browser/
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://searchforfree.info/browser/
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://searchforfree.info/
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = http://searchforfree.info/
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = http://searchforfree.info/browser/
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://searchforfree.info/browser/
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://searchforfree.info/
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://searchforfree.info/browser/
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://searchforfree.info/browser/
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch = http://searchforfree.info/browser/

F3 - REG:win.ini: run=C:\WINNT\htmlsync.exe

O1 - Hosts: 82.146.42.75 web.da-us.citibank.com

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [isystem] C:\WINNT\System32\isystem.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [C:\WINNT\System32\nvdsvc32.exe ] C:\WINNT\System32\nvdsvc32.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [ldriver] C:\WINNT\System32\ldriver.exe

O21 - SSODL: pZSSOTFnGF - {65FEDFB4-CF54-751E-104A-E9A87C9572AC} - C:\WINNT\System32\xrwrtw.dll


Also remove these if they are not for your ISP, local network or company business:

O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\Parameters: Domain = wfhgb.local
O17 - HKLM\Software\..\Telephony: DomainName = wfhgb.local
O17 - HKLM\System\CS1\Services\Tcpip\Parameters: Domain = wfhgb.local
O17 - HKLM\System\CS2\Services\Tcpip\Parameters: Domain = wfhgb.local



Now, with all windows closed except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".

===============

Locate and delete the following item(s), if present. Make sure your able to"view system and hidden files/folders"(rehide system files and folders when were done):

files...

C:\WINNT\System32\nvdsvc32.exe
C:\WINNT\htmlsync.exe
C:\WINNT\System32\isystem.exe
C:\WINNT\System32\ldriver.exe
C:\WINNT\System32\xrwrtw.dll

-

Note that some of these file(s) may or may not be present. If present, and cannot be deleted because they're 'in use', try deleting them from "Safe Mode".

===============

Run the Hoster program you downloaded to the desktop. Choose the 'Restore Original Hosts' button and press OK.

===============

Reboot your computer.

===============

Go to www.trendmicro.com, and then:

1. Click "Free Online Scan".
2. Click "Scan now, it's free".

It'll take a few minutes to download (especially with a dialup connection), so be patient. When it's done:

1. Select all available drives.
2. Check(tick) "Auto Clean".
3. Click "Scan".

When it completes, copy the full filename of any files that cannot be cleaned or deleted and post them when your done with the following fix.

==============

Post back a new HijackThis log, report any problems and let me know how everything goes.

IMPORTANT! PLEASE do not restart your computer unless asked, restarting can reinfect your computer resulting in us starting the cleaning up process all over!
