I clicked on the wrong link and got nailed. It's happened before, and normally CWShredder takes care of it, but it's not recognizing this one, so I think it may be new.

My homepage is repeatedly being reset to "res://fqknp.dll/index.html#96676". Also, if I do a search on yahoo, a new browser is opened that performs a search at "search-to-find.com". Of course, certain words on any page are now links.

I tried Spybot, and while it found and rid me of a lot of stuff, it didn't fix this problem. I also ran Hijack This, which turned up a few entries that include "fqknp". When I fix them, it temporarily resets my home page, but if I open or close Internet Explorer, the hijack reappears. Actually, the hijack will reappear simply after the browser's been in use for a while.

Here's my log from Hijack This. Any help would be appreciated.

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.

Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log, and let us know how your system's working. <_<

I tried this, and after rebooting, I ran HijackThis to produce the first log below. I then opened IE and HijackThis produced the same log (which was promising, since previously starting IE would cause a return of the original log). Unfortunately, after I closed IE and ran HijackThis again, the second log below was produced and the hijacking elements were back.

Here are the first and second logs:

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.
O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [netyz.exe] C:\WINDOWS\netyz.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [ieik32.exe] C:\WINDOWS\system32\ieik32.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [winql.exe] C:\WINDOWS\winql.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [netba32.exe] C:\WINDOWS\netba32.exe

Reboot in safe mode (by tapping F8 at startup and select safe mode from the menu).
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):
C:\WINDOWS\netyz.exe

I was able to do all you asked except run the housecall.antivirus.com scan. I tried a couple of times, and it crashed IE each time.

This time, I was able to open, close, and reopen IE without HijackThis indicating my homepage was reset again. I don't know if I could have kept doing that, though, since I tried doing a search on Yahoo. The search-to-find window opened up again and my homepage was once again hijacked. Erg! The new hijacked log is below.

ARG!

Well, I gave this a shot, and it's still not fixed. I played around with it some more and I noticed that when I kill processes that show up in O4 RunOnce, after a while they start up again (unless I've deleted the file in the meantime - in which case, a new random process starts up that will show up in the next scan of HijackThis). Every once in a while, two processes will start up, but one quickly ends itself before I can catch what it's called.

I'm going to keep playing around with this and see if I can figure it out. I'll also keep checking back for posts, so if anyone's got a fix, advice, or anything else that might help, please keep it coming.

Thanks to everyone who's helped so far.

Here's the latest log:

The latest Ad-aware has some success removing this infection. Download the latest version of Ad-Aware from here (if you already have Ad-Aware installed, make sure that it is the latest version and always go online and update it before you run it).

After installing AAW, and before running the program, you must FIRST update the reference file following these instuctions. (and you must always do this before you run the program at any later date).

Now do the following:

Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks > Scanning Engine:
check: "Unload recognized processes during scanning."

Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks > Cleaning Engine:
Check: "Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."

Press "Scan Now"

- Check option "Use Custom scanning options"
- Check option "Activate In-Depth Scan"
- Press "Select drives\folders to scan"
- Select the active partition which is usually C:

Now press "Next" to let Ad-aware scan your drives. It will find a number of spyware files and registry keys. Right-click in that pane and choose "select all"

Now press "Next" again. It will ask you whether you'd like to remove all checked items. Click OK.

Finally, close Ad-Aware, and reboot.

Run Hijack This again and post back a fresh log.

I didn't try ad-aware, but I think I managed to get this fixed without screwing up my machine in the process. I finally searched the net for netzr.exe and found absolutely nothing, so I had HijackThis fix that entry after I killed that process. Of course, I also killed any of the other usual suspect processes and fixed the random HijackThis entries like I've been doing for the last day or two.

After several reboots, several openings and closings of IE, and several yahoo searches, no symptoms have returned. Woo-hoo!!!!

For now, it looks like this is fixed. I'll repost to this thread if it suddenly pops up again. Thank you again for all your help. There's no way I would have been able to get to this last little step without all the help and advice posted above.

I hope this helps anyone who's having the same problem.

I'd be surprised if this doesn't reapear. This infection hids itself deep in some hidden DLL's and, and respawns using random file names. There are new fixes almost everyday--so keep us posted. <_<
