Here is my log file. I have no idea what going on, or how this happened, but I need some help! Thank you in advance for any help anyone can provide for me!

I am infected with something, since entries in the registry continue to "pop up" out of nowhere, and I cannot specify a startpage other than "http://www.startsearches.net/"

:tazz:

Thanks!

HijackThis is not "fixing" these files...nothing happens when I "fix" them; they remain on the list, and the "CoolWebSearch Infection" remains.

CWShredder reports: "CoolWebSearch was not found on this system."

I followed the instructions, and no luck.

What else can I do?

first, it seems as if you didnt' get the whole log pasted, could you please post a new log?

Second, prior to posting the log, please make sure word wrap is turned off on your notepad text editor. to do this click on format and remove the checkmark.

I am continuing to play with this. First, I tried everything I could think of in safe mode. After reboot normally, this is a log before any application, other than HJT was launched.

Oh yeah, About:buster reports no problems, nothing found during scan. As far as I can tell, it did nothing.

please run this online virus scan:

ActiveScan

This has to be done with Internet explorer as it relies on the ActiveX components to work.

Then post a copy of that scans log with a new log from Hijack This

This hijacking spyware will not allow me to run this scan.

Activating the scan opens a new window which starts small, presents http://www.startsearches.net, and then maximizes to full screen.

No scan is taking place.

Would it be possible to get a list of potential solutions all at once to attempt to expediate this purging? These incremental failures are becoming quite frustrating.

I am afraid to log on anywhere because of this spyware, and I am losing valuable time. I will nuke the OS if required, but would rather not, you know?

Thanks.

ok, I did a little research.

Please read these instructions carefully and print them out! Be sure to follow ALL instructions!

first we need to disable Microsofts anti-spy tool.
Open Microsoft AntiSpyware.
Click on Tools, Settings.
In the left pane, click on Real-time Protection.
Under Startup Options uncheck Enable the Microsoft AntiSpyware Security Agents on startup (recommended).
Under Real-time spyware threat protection uncheck Enable real-time spyware threat protection (recommended).
After you uncheck these, click on the Save button and close Microsoft AntiSpyware.
Right click on the Microsoft AntiSpyware icon on the taskbar and select Shutdown Microsoft AntiSpyware.

Please RIGHT-CLICK: HERE and go to Save As (in Internet Explorer it's "Save Target As") in order to download Grinler's reg file. Save it to your desktop.

Locate "smitfraud.reg" on your desktop and double-click it. When asked if you want to merge with the registry, click YES. Wait for the "merged successfully" prompt then follow the rest of the instructions below.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs and remove the following programs, if found:

Security IGuard
Virtual Maid
Search Maid


Exit Add/Remove Programs.

*IMPORTANT*CLICK THIS LINK TO LEARN HOW TO VIEW HIDDEN FILES

I need you to copy all of the Killbox file paths below and paste them into Notepad.

* Please download the Killbox by Option^Explicit. *In the event you already have Killbox, this is a new version that I need you to download.

* Save it to your desktop.

* Please double-click Killbox.exe to run it.

* Select "Delete on Reboot".

* Open the Notepad file where you saved the file paths earlier and copy the file paths below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C

* Return to Killbox, go to the File menu, and choose "Paste from Clipboard".

* Click the red-and-white "Delete File" button. Click "Yes" at the Delete on Reboot prompt. Click "No" at the Pending Operations prompt.

If your computer does not restart automatically, please restart it manually.

While your computer is restarting, tap the F8 key continually until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, then hit enter.

Make sure you can view hidden files.

Using Windows Explorer, delete the following, if found, (please do NOT try to find them by "search" because they will not show up that way)

ok - I am currently scanning @ ActiveScan...life continues, so I must step out...same difference anyway; that scan took a LONG time before I interrupted it earlier...I have many drives on line, and I could not figure out how to limit scanning to main primary drive...I will report back in a few hours with scan results and new HJT log.

Thanks.

ok, OMG, this scan took all night to run.

It looks like you broke the chain, though. Thanks for all your help. My innocent files are pleased they were spared from needless irradication.

I removed the majority of the resulting entries of the ActiveScan which came from other drives on the system. These drives and associated old infections were part of another operating system, and have no bearing on the problem at hand.

Here's the results:
