This is the worst infection I've ever had on my system. Anyone heard of "www.updatesearches.com"? It tries to dial out, when I try to get back to my home page, it redirects (most other site is leaves alone). It affects MS explorer, I loaded Firefox and it seems to leave it alone. My display settings do not allow me to change wallpaper, the list goes on. Please help.

Thanks

Thanks for the help - it appears to be better, buy now I have a icon in my system tray that looks like the KillBox logo, and keeps popping up a balloon saying "your computer is infected!". Anyway, here is the current logfile, post suggested fix.

Wow, that seemed to do the trick. Thanks so much for the help on this :tazz: . Just one question, what is the point of this type of code? I mean, is it spyware, or do they really think people will buy stuff? Anyway, here is the latest log file

They open up your system to all kinds of misery.
Worst case, they use your computer as a spamserver.

I'd really urge you to use some kind of protection or we could be doing this every day. :tazz:

Can you surf to http://virusscan.jotti.org/
and have this file scanned:
C:\dns2.exe
Let me know the results.

Check the items listed below in HijackThis, close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ICQ Chat Service] mdie.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ibin] C:\dns2.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [ICQ Chat Service] mdie.exe

Reboot and post a new log.
