Hi
I have chased down a few clues to the problem, but am unable to remove whatever it is that's infecting my system. I have tried using Norton AV, Spybot - Search&Destroy, Mcafee, Trend Micro ... etc, to no avail.

* c:\windows\system32\ywacgny.exe. This is in the HJT log and appears in my Task Manager, as well as in the Run key of my registry. Killing the process did not help as it would re-appear as another file in the same location, with the same size but a different jibberish 7-letter name.

* Occasionally popups appear. E.g., along with google.com, sites like popupsearch.com and begin2search.com will also appear in a separate window.

* Sometimes ShopAtHomeSelect would also get installed.

* Unwanted shopping-related shortcuts appear on my desktop.

Thanks a lot, people. You are great to be doing this for free. :tazz:

Get a copy of winsockxpfix.exe before you do anything. This is just a safety
item in case you can't get on the internet afterwards. You just run it and
things should work OK after it reboots your system.

http://www.iup.edu/h...net/winfix.shtm



Also download and install ccleaner.exe from http://www.ccleaner.com. Don't let
it clean anything yet.

Start then right click on My Computer and press Manage. In the new window
Service and Applications then Services. In the right pane scroll down and find
the System Startup Service. Double click on it and and then set the Start Type
to Disabled. Then OK.

Now shutdown and reboot into Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key when you see the PC
maker's logo.
Keep tapping until it tells you it is going to Safe Mode or you see the Safe
Mode menu. Select the top option.

Run HijackThis and just do a Scan only. Check then Fix
Checked the following:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Bats/My%20Documents/IE%20Home/frequent.htm
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [grylqig] c:\windows\system32\ywacgny.exe <=or whatever it calls it self these days

O23 - Service: System Startup Service (SvcProc) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\svcproc.exe


Wait 60 seconds and repeat the scan. Did any of the above come back? IF so
leave HijackThis up and right click on the clock and select Task Manager. Then
Processes. Find Explorer.exe, right click on it and select End Process. The
desktop will disappear but HijackThis should still be there. IF you don't see
it switch to Applications in Task Manager and highlight it there then press
Switch To or just double click on it. Check and Fix Checked the above again.
Restart Explorer by Task Manager, File, New Task(Run), explorer.exe, OK.



Now run ccleaner.exe. On the first page, uncheck everything but the two lines
that have the word Temporary in them then Run Cleaner.

Start, Run, cmd, OK. This should bring up a black DOS type window. Type:

rmdir /s /q "C:\Program Files\Flashget"
exit


Reboot into normal mode and run another HijackThis log and send it to me. Let's
see how we did.
