Hi

something has got my computer and wont let go. It runs slowly and when I connect to the internet with Mozilla, it cant find my home page and then 3 windows of Internet explorer open accessing page 63.246.131.130 which eventually ask me to click and download Activex.

Mozilla cant access any pages unless I try 3 times and then it takes ages - and eventually stops altogether.

I have Norton Antivirus 2004, updated. I have run Spybot, Ad-aware and CWShredder. They have all found something which I have deleted. However, problem still reoccurs.

I cannot access the internet with that computer (- not the one I am now using -) so cannot run the online virus scan or trojan scan.

I have just deleted all the temp files and have not tried reconnecting to the internet in case of additional infection as I have run HijackThis

Here is the Hijack this log. Any help gratefully received.

Hi
Please download Ad-awre se http://www.majorgeek...ownload506.html


To set up Ad-aware se follow these simple steps
1) Run the WebUpdate feature.

2) Set up the Configurations as follows: click on the gear icon
If any icons are greyed out you can not use that item

General Button
Safety:
Check (Green) all three.

Advanced Button
Logfile Detail Level:
All options under this should be checked (Green).

Tweak Button
Check (Green) the following:
Log Files
Include basic Ad-Aware settings in logfile:
Include additional Ad-Aware settings in logfile:
Please do not check (Green): Include Module list in logfile:

Click on "Proceed"

3) Click on "Scan Now"

4) Please deselect "Search for negligible risk entries", as negligible risk entries (MRU's) are not considered to be a threat.
If these are included in your logfile it will be removed as it just takes up space and we will not give advice on them, they are users choice.

5) Run the scanner using the Full Scan (Perform full system scan) mode.
A full scan is the in-depth scan mode that scans your whole computer for Spyware infections. When performing a full scan the following scan settings are used:

- Full Memory Scan is performed
- Registry Scan is performed
- Deep Registry scan is performed
- Cookie-Scan is performed
- Favorites are scanned
- Hosts file is scanned
- Conditional scans are performed
- Archive files are scaned
- All fixed drives are scanned

Copy onto a CD-writer THEN LOAD IT ONTO YOUR LAPTOP
When the scan has completed, Post a new HijackThis.Log

Thank You

*** Your log is clean ***
Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN <_<

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use) Click Here.

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend FireFox Posted Image.
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder if everything is working okay.

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. :D

By the way, whats the problem with running Hijackthis from the desktop?

The desktop location is okay, but some people prefer it be located in a permanent folder so that the backups are always accessible.
