Excal, thanks for re-opening this. I guess I'd better get this over with, besides, I think my spouse is about to call in help on me :tazz:

Here's what I was able to do:

-copied all the programs over
-unzipped SpSeHjfix
-ran cleanup installer
-set up about:buster but "check for updates" did nothing (IE problem still?)
-opened cwshredder, but check for updates did nothing
-confirmed could see hidden files, etc.
-rebooted in safe, ran cwshredder, it didn't find any "CW..."'s, but it did remove 2 IE links (?) and did two other one-line items at the end
-ran hjt and checked as listed, except 1,2,4,5,6, and 8 items do not appear anymore to check. I also checked three O9 comcast items that were associated with some stuff that was removed a while ago
-ran about:buster, log attached
-ran SpSeHjfix, log attached
-ran cleanup!, rebooted (actually re-logged on first, still in safe mode, then rebooted into normal mode)
-tried activescan link again- got blank IE window again at first, then file called "redir" tried to download. I cancelled, then re-clicked on link. This time file called "activescan.html" or something tried to download, to which I said yes. Nothing more happened, so repeated, including re-boot- no change.
-ran hjt again, log attached
-in general, IE opens, but still no search bar. no longer auto-opens on boot (good). file search and control panel still not working.

Thanks again for the help,
illin

Excal, oops on the IE- I meant address bar. I just get the window title and "File/Edit/View/etc" line, no buttons or address bar or google tool bar. I'll try the regedit tonight when I get home- thanks,

reboot and let me know.

Excal, ok, it asked me if I wanted to add the contents of the file to my registry, which I did. I rebooted, but the file search, control panel, and IE address bar are all still not working. I also tried the pandascan link, but it didn't work either.

Excal, I guess some background is in order. I have only one machine at home. We have two work laptops which we bring home occasionally that I've been using to work on this. The internet connection at home is via a Comcast cable modem and 802.11b hub (but via a wired ethernet connection, not wireless for the sick machine). The sick computer is an HP P4, about a year old, running XP with SP1a. When the virus crashed everything I initially tried to remove it manually. I may have deleted one or two registry keys (eek!) if something is missing that you are looking for. I don't use any logon name or password- it only has one windows "account" if that's what you mean. As far as I-net goes, it is auto-logon as far as I understand. I'm not sure- does this help answer your question? Thanks! Here's the last search results:

Are the control panel and search feature grayed out? or you just can't use them....i am a little confused on that now.

Excal, when I click on Start and then mouse over "Settings" or "Search", the sub-directories appear normally, including the words "Control Panel" and "For Files or Folders...", but if I click on either of them, nothing happens.

Excal, is there some way I should check to see if the registry was properly updated? On your question earlier on the matter of log-ins, I do get a screen during boot-up in safe mode where I have the option of logging in as Administrator or Owner. I've tried both, but the Owner setting gets the longer list of stuff when I run an HJT log, so I've been using that. The option only appears when using safe mode though.

As a matter of curiosity, is the loss of search and the control panel typical of smitfraud or one of the other programs that it allows in? I did notice that nvidia's desktop manager was trying to run (or install- can't remember?) when I was trying to initially get my desktop back. I don't remember whether HP shipped the computer with this software, but its not something I've ever used or want to see running on the computer. To my understanding, this program has the ability to create mirror desktops and transparent desktops. Could this be a factor?

Thanks,
illin

Lets just double check this.

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

reboot and check the status.


Thanks,

:tazz:
