Hi guys

Firstly thanks for this forum.
Here are the symptoms of my hijack:
1. Red icon with white "X" in the taskbar which doesn't respond to clicks and every two minutes gets a popup bubble saying: "Warning! Virus detected Your system is attacked by stealth.Hijack virus! Your windows probably will not boot next time Click here to choose and download authorised antivirus". Sometimes the popup is different and informs of desktop being authorised and sometimes of network under attack or something.
2. 20 desktop shortcuts with names such as Air Tickets, BlackJack, Britney Spears, Lesbian Sex, Remove Spyware, ...etc all leading to http://www.specialgo...info/search.php
3. Popup every 2 minutes saying: "Error #317- Microsoft Windows Security Warning Your windows is corrupted with spyware virus. You must patch your PC urgently to protect your system. Private info is accessed by ports -8030 -3128 bla bla bla you get the point.
4. I.E. opens every 2 minutes going to same website as desktop shortcuts.

I had norton antivirus running before i got this trojan but it was a bit outdated (no more than a month), as well as MS Antispyware.
Norton picked up trojan.desktophicjack and deleted it automatically but the problem was not resolved. It doesn't pick it up anymore but it does pick up 4 other files which seem to be unrelated adware, but it won't let me delete them even in safe mode.
MS Antispyware just picks up a possible browser hijack but doesn't fix anything.
At one point I saw a blank-name file in the startup tab of msconfig. I disabled it and restarted my PC... And the trojan was gone!... for 5 minutes until it came back. I have not seen the unnamed file in my startup since.
I also followed the instructions at symantec's site http://securityrespo...ktophijack.html, found numerous of the registry strings and values and deleted them but they immediately return.
I've also done everything in your "You must read this..." section but the problem remains.
I am on the verge of having a nervous breakdown! Please help!

Hopefully you can advise me on what I should do next. I am thinking maybe format is my best option- my pc is taking the toll and going really slowly.
Many thanks! :tazz:

Welcome to GTG.

Let's see if we can save you the trouble of formatting. :tazz:

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that 'Display the contents of system folders' is checked. If you have Windows XP, the search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that 'Search system folders', 'Search hidden files and folders', and 'Search subfolders' are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Download KillBox http://www.greyknigh...spy/KillBox.exe. Don't run it yet.

Reboot into Safe Mode by hitting the F8 key repeatedly until a menu shows up (and choose Safe Mode from the list). In some systems, this may be the F5 key, so try that if F8 doesn't work. Make sure to close any open browsers. Run a scan in HijackThis. Check each of the following and hit 'Fix checked' (after checking them) if they still exist (make sure not to miss any):

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.specialgo...info/ad/ad0415/
O1 - Hosts: 64.91.255.87 www.dcsresearch.com


Run KillBox and check the box that says 'End Explorer Shell While Killing File'. Next click on 'Delete on Reboot'. For each of the following files below, check the box that says 'Unregister .dll Before Deleting' if it's not grayed out. Copy and paste each of the following into KillBox (hitting the X button for each file - choose NO when it asks if you want to reboot):

C:\WINDOWS\System32\guninst.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\popup_bl.dll
C:\WINDOWS\System32\SEARCHDLL.DLL
C:\WINDOWS\System32\param32.dll
C:\WINDOWS\System32\systr.dll


Reboot into Normal Mode run a new HijackThis scan. Save the log file and post it here.

Fix this in HijackThis again:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.specialgo...info/ad/ad0415/


Also see if you can find those other files to delete.

Restart and post a new HijackThis log.

Your log is clean.

Turn off system restore by right clicking on My Computer and go to Properties->System Restore and check the box for Turn off System Restore. Click Apply and then OK. Restart your computer and uncheck the same box to enable System Restore.

Make sure to get the latest updates for Windows and Internet Explorer at http://v5.windowsupd...t.aspx?ln=en-us.

To help prevent future spyware installations/infections, please read the Anti-Spyware Tutorial and use the tools provided.

Are there any problems now? If not, you should be set to go.
