All righty, slowly but surely, I think things are starting to get straightened out. I tried everything you said to do. When I ran noscript, it said t hat Scripting was already enabled. So I ran silentrunner, but it gave me the same message that it gave me yesterday. I deleted all those files, so they're gone, and I ran CCleaner and FxIstBar, so something must be squeaky clean.

I just wonder why Search still doesn't work and why I am unable to run certain things like silentrunner. Did these last fixes get rid of those 11 "viruses" we found on Mwav?

I sure do appreciate your help. I have not heard of most of these things before!

Oh, and this is juicy. Just now I closed Microsoft Explorer, then I tried to bring it back up and instead of going to my homepage (msn.com), it had "about:blank" in the address bar. Obviously, I was still able to get online though. This had not happened before.

Those 11 files were not viruses. Most were ok to leave alone. I just asked you to clean out those junk entries in the registry there and delete the few that were bad files.

OK, give me this log. Let's see if it will tell us anything:

Download StartDreck http://www.greyknigh.../StartDreck.zip

Unzip to its own folder and start the program:
Press 'Config'
Press 'mark all'

Uncheck the following boxes only:
System/Running Process -> List Modules
System/Drivers -> NT Services
System/Drivers -> NT Kernel- and FS-drivers
Press 'OK'

Press 'Save' and select the location to save the log file (default is the same folder as the application)

Post the log in this thread.

Go to C:\WINDOWS\ and double click on wininit.ini to open it in Notepad. Delete this line:

`NUL=m


Save the file and close it.

Run StartDreck with the same options checked like before. Click on each of the following and hit the Delete button in the program:

*Start Page=about:blank

To make it easier, I suggest doing a search for the above line (in the forum here) so that you have a rough idea of where it's located in the StartDreck program.

How's everything now?

Well, I have the correct internet homepage now. All I see is the problem using Search, and the inability running scripts (like with silentrunner) and online virus scans (like pandasoftware and even my McAfee CD).

I also notice that if I go to a web site, aol for example, via internet explorer, I am unable to access the login page. The same thing happened with another web site that requires a log in. I don't know if this is random, or if this rings a bell somehow.

For the search problem, take a look here. I'm not sure if it applies in your case also.

For the login page problem, go to Start->Run and type in regsvr32 softpub.dll and hit OK. See if that fixes it.

Any other problems?

Hey, neither one of those fixes worked. I have run more scans using the tools like SpyBot and AdAware to see if anything comes up, and a couple of times I have seen WildTangent files. This is an infection of some kind isn't it? I wonder if this is somewhere and just keeps copying itself, and maybe it is why I can't do online or computer-based virus scans too. What do you think? Thanks so much for all your help. This is such a pesky problem.

WildTangent probably won't cause this problem. See if it's listed in the Add/Remove panel. Uninstall it from there if it's found.

I'm not sure if this is related to malware anymore. Please post the search problem and login problem in the Windows XP forum instead. You should get better assistance there.

If there are no more questions/problems related to spyware, I will close this topic.
