I have tried spy-bot, spy-catcher, ad aware se, hi jack this, etc... It will not go away. There is so many issues that keep installing by their self. The two that are really driving me crazy are ads1.search miracle. and msiexec.exe. The search miracle just keeps opening with nothing on the page. The msiexec.exe will ask if I want to run or save file. I have actually clicked on run, just to see if it would go away and nothing at all happens. I have a hi-jack this log but I don't have a clue what to fix. I hope you can help. Thanks

Please re-open HiJackThis and scan. Check the boxes next to all the entries listed below.

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer,SearchURL =
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = localhost
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName =

F2 - REG:system.ini: UserInit=C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,C:\WINDOWS\System32\AUserInit.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [checkrun] C:\windows\system32\elitemkx32.exe
O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions present
O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present

Now close all windows other than HiJackThis, then click Fix Checked. Reboot into safe mode.

Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.

Please delete these files using Windows Explorer(if present):
C:\windows\system32\elitemkx32.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\AUserInit.exe

After that, Reboot.

Post a fresh HJT log here in a reply for me to check over, and also let me know how things are running now!

Hi again Jenny! First of all, here is what I found on your first question:

Process File: msiexec or msiexec.exe
Process Name: Windows Installer Component

Description:
msiexec.exe belongs to the Windows Installer Component and is used to install new programs that use Windows Installer package files (MSI). This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.

Secondly...we need to try to Killbox that one file that is back again, which is most likely causing your popups.

Click here to download Pocket Killbox by Option^Explicit. Extract it from the zip file then double-click on Killbox.exe to run it. Place the following lines (complete paths) in bold in the "Full Path of File to Delete" box in Killbox, and click the red button with the white X on it after each. Keep track of any files it tells you either could not be found or could not be deleted, as you'll need those later:

C:\windows\system32\elitemkx32.exe

For the files that it either couldn't find or couldn't delete, in the killbox again this time, put a mark next to "Delete on Reboot". Copy and paste each file into the file name box, then click the red button with the X after each. It will ask you if you want to reboot each time you click it, answer NO until after you've pasted the last file name, at which time you should answer Yes.

Open HJT and click "Scan" then place a check next to the following entries (if found:)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [checkrun] C:\windows\system32\elitemkx32.exe

close all windows and programs other than HJT and click "Fix"

reboot and post a fresh log, and let me know if the popups are gone now.

I think I may have found my way back to you!
When i tried using the kill box it clears the file it says"pending file rename operations registry data removed by eternal process" I tried several times and it keeps clearing it.

ok, we'll kill it using HijackThis then! :tazz:

Open HijackThis and click on "Open the Misc Tools section"

Click on "Delete a file on reboot" which will open a search window. Navigate to
C:\windows\system32\elitemkx32.exe and click "open" then close HJT and reboot your machine..then paste a fresh HJT log here in a reply.

ohhh. I just saw your new post. Give me an example or two of the elite files, will ya? THe exact file names, I mean

It is doing the same thing. It is clearing the text line. Should I go to window explorer and delete it there?

ok we're going to try something a little different. Open HJT and scan for a log, then place a check next to the following entries:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = http://qus9.hpwis.com/
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = http://srch-qus9.hpwis.com/
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://qus9.hpwis.com/
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = http://qus9.hpwis.com/
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = http://srch-qus9.hpwis.com/
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://srch-qus9.hpwis.com/
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://srch-qus9.hpwis.com/
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://qus9.hpwis.com/
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Connection Wizard,ShellNext = http://qus9.hpwis.com/
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [checkrun] C:\windows\system32\elitemkx32.exe

make sure everything else is closed, and click "Fix" now reboot into safe mode by continuously tapping the F8 key, and find those files to delete:

C:\windows\system32\elitemkx32.exe
along with these:
elitefzi32
eliterfy32
eliteyfr32
eliteyme32

reboot normally and post a fresh HJT log
