Glad to find this forum. Found it while searching for some kind of cure/tool/fix for this nasty desktophijacker thing: W32.Desktophijack and/or trojan.desktophijack.c.
At first my desktop was altered to something else, a small red icon was placed next to my MSN-icon and the Norton-icon in the righthand bottom of the screen, my IEstartpage was changed and a program called PSguard (or something like that) was installed.
With HijackThis I found some strange lines/items witch I removed. I un-installed the PSGuard-thing and the little red icon disappeared, the desktop returned to normal, my startpage was back to normal and every thing seems to OK.
-But the problem is that Norton2003 still pops up all the time with a warning about the W32.Desktophijack and/or trojan.desktophijack.c.
I have download'et the Ewido-program but I guess that something is wrong. It seems that the program is working fine but after 6 seconds Ewido finds something and closes without any warning. What do I do wrong? Should i re-install Ewido?
Any tips on removing the last part off the desktophijacking?
Hope to hear from some of you.
EDIT1: This is the a description of my original problem from symantec: http://securityrespo...ophijack.c.html
EDIT2: It now seems that the problem is "only" the W32. Desktophijack. It dos not seem to do cause any trouble but Norton keeps warning me about it. It has apparently infected the windows/system32/wininet.dll. Could i download a "fresh" wininet.dll from the web?
