Hello,

I have Spysweeper and Adaware and Hijack This and cwshredder and have been fighting with this for a day and can't get rid of it. I have not done much with the Hijack because the web page that tells how to use it properly is down but I need help. If you can help me, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks,

Paul

Hi Paul, welcome to Geeks to Go! <_<

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

I did turn off all activex in the explorer to see if it would help, but that also prevents me some access.

from Spysweeper tech support:

Solution: Hello,

Unfortunately we still don't have a permanent fix for Cool Web Search. Our software engineers are working around the clock to find a permanent solution, but it is difficult because CWS is probably the worst browser hijacker we have ever come across. In addition to the fact that there are numerous new variants of it released each day, CWS also automatically changes its own file names to hide from anti-spyware programs like ours. It has been extremely difficult for us to find and remove the pest because it is always disguising itself and remaining in memory. Until a permanent fix is devised, I would suggest making use of Spy Sweeper's IE hijacker shield. This shield will allow you to automatically restore your home page every time you start your browser. It is not a perfect fix, but it is all we have at the time being. Also, try running safe-mode sweeps from time to time with our newest definitions and all Windows critical updates installed. Remember to check for Spy Sweeper updates on a regular basis, as the fix will be released before long.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact technical support again.

Sincerely,
Tech Support

Hi Bondzai. I am new to the board and am still learning the ropes or I would advise you on what to do next. Everyone on the board is a volunteer and they will be by to help you soon. Hold tight. The problem will be solved.

I do know they will ask you to move Hijack This to a permanent folder (i.e. C:\HJT). This ensures backups are saved and accessible.


These are just a few preliminary instructions. Hold tight. I'll be watching for your progress.

I will give you a few more things to work on before someone can help you with the Hijack This Log.

To reset your restore points, please note that you will need to log into your computer with an account which has full administrator access. You will know if the account has administrator access because you will be able to see the System Restore tab. If the tab is missing, you are logged in under a limited account.


1. Turn off System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

2. Reboot.



Have you downloaded Spybot Search and Destroy 1.3?
