Hi there First we will run a quick check to ensure that it is just Blekko and then clean you up

Download OTL to your Desktop
Secondary link
  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.

    Posted Image
  • Select All Users
  • Under the Custom Scan box paste this in

    netsvcs
    BASESERVICES
    %SYSTEMDRIVE%\*.exe
    /md5start
    services.*
    explorer.exe
    winlogon.exe
    Userinit.exe
    svchost.exe
    winsock.*
    /md5stop
    CREATERESTOREPOINT

  • Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
  • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
  • Post both logs

hi, thanks for the help!
i did some searching on my own and found some information that helped me. I read an article (http://www.americanp...8/blekko-virus/) where it was said that i need to make a system restore. I also followed some guides from here http://answers.micro...46-7766c477e71f (wow, sorry for the huge link) and then i scanned my computer again and no infections showed up. I managed to bring my own homepage back and now i am happy with the result :)

Thank you for your time :)
