Hi jfisher75 and welcome to GeeksToGo! My name is Excal and I will be helping you

I noticed that your HiJackthis.exe is located on your desktop, make sure to save HijackThis in its own folder (i.e. C:\HJT). This is very important, so HiJackThis can save backups!


DOWNLOAD PROGRAMS


Download and install CleanUp! Here
*NOTE* Cleanup deletes EVERYTHING out of temp/temporary folders and does not make backups.

We will use this program later.

Please download ewido security suite it is a trial version of the program.
  • Install ewido security suite
  • When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".
  • Launch ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop double-click it.
  • The program will now go to the main screen
You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.
  • On the left hand side of the main screen click update
  • Then click on Start Update
The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
If you are having problems with the updater, you can use this link to manually update ewido.
ewido manual updates

  • During the scan when it ask if you want to clean the first file, put a check in the lower left corner of the box that says "Perform action on all infections" then choose clean and click OK
  • When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
  • Save the report to your desktop
Close Ewido

5. Close all browsers, windows and unneeded programs.

6. Open HiJack and do a scan.

7. Put a Check next to the following items:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [winshost.exe] C:\WINDOWS\System32\winshost.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [winshost.exe] C:\WINDOWS\System32\winshost.exe


8. click the Fix Checked box

9. Please remove just the files from the following paths using Windows Explorer (if present):

C:\WINDOWS\System32\winshost.exe
C:\WINDOWS\_re_file.exe


10. Run the program CleanUp!
