Hi Everyone-- I'm new here. This site is a terrific resource!

I am really hoping someone could help me rid my wife's computer of a huge number of nasties. First, some background. We are infected with the Home Search adware at the very least. Whevever I run Spybot, Adaware SE, SpyBlaster, and about 3 or 4 other anti-spyware apps, I get numerous listings of infections. For example, in Adaware alone, we had about 270 Critical Objects. When I purge the nasties, they become present upon the next scan.

Computer resources are getting tied up each session until the computer freezes. Can hardly use IE. The hijacker lists a number of entries in the Trusted Sites, and removes these same entries from Restricted Sites. This thing is very clever and seems to replicate itself using various names. Tried purging in safe mode, using numerous applications, then hard resetting, but no dice.

Here is my Hijack This log. I really appreciate your time and help! Thus far, I must have spent the last three weekends and a lot of sleep trying to get rid of these annoyances.

Update - I followed instructions elsewhere on the site to remove *.frame.crazywinnings.com . It seems to be gone --thanks for that useful registry merge. :tazz:

HOWEVER, now the Home Search pest is really going bezerk, and it's popup madness. I think the crucial pest here is the thing that powers the Home Search page. :mad:

;) Help!

First follow instructions here:
http://securityrespo...moval.tool.html

Then download and run CWShredder from: http://www.intermute...r_download.html

Then post a new HijackThis log, but include the headers that will tell us the versions of Windows IE and HijackThis that you are using.

Regards,

Pieter

Thanks Pieter (like your username, just saw them live in San Diego :tazz: )

After submitting this post last night, I managed to make some progress using the removal guide resource at www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial85.html

I just ran the Norton tool and CWShredder. It "seems" that my system is clean, although my virus scans still seem to come up with lurking pests here and there.

Here is my Hijack This log. Thanks for having a look! -Alex

Thanks. I was in fact already running Ad-Aware SE, but I uninstalled it, and followed your instructions completely. It should be noted that prior to runnng this scan, my Avast caught a pest that KEEPS appearing no matter what I do:
Here's what Avast said it found: Win32:Winshow[Trj] C\\Windows\Temp\~DF3C8B.TMP VPS version: 0451-0, 13/12/2004

Strangely, I haven't seen any INSTANCES of this pest, but can only imagine that it will cause this whole time-consuming cycle of spyware all over again.

I've run the About Blaster, and the piece of freeware made to get rid of the Winshow annoyance. I think I downloaded it from Symantec. It told me that it's not on my computer. Yet it always comes back on my Avast/Ad-Aware scans.

Per your request, here is my Hijack This file post Adaware scanning. Thanks for your feedback!

Thanks. Done. My Adaware keeps crashing mysteriously. Was happening before I reinstalled it as well. Seems like it's eating up too many system resources. Also get error messages occasionally. It did tell me to remove a reg key called Aureate. I actually have an Aureate DLL remover as well. Anyway, killed it, then installed the new version of HijackThis from your link path.

Here's the log. Thanks :-)
Alex

PS: There's some sort of VXD mention in the last two logs. Hope those aren't malicious... :tazz:
