When we dial up the internet the connection box appears, often with about:blank in the background. After connecting, about:blank will appear as our home page.

Hi floykim

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

First, get rid of NewDotNet. Go to Control Panel:Add/Remove Programs and remove it. If it is not there, go here and follow Procedure 4: http://www.newdotnet.com

Reboot

Download Ad-aware from: http://www.geekstogo...n=download&id=5

Install the program and launch it.

First, in the main window, look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now and download the latest reference files.

Next, we need to configure Ad-aware for a full scan.

-> Click on the Gear icon (second from the left) to access the preferences/settings window

1. In the General window make sure the following are selected:
  • Automatically save log-file
  • Automatically quarantine objects prior to removal
  • Safe Mode (always request confirmation)
2. Click on the Scanning button on the left and select :
  • Scan Within Archives
  • Scan Active Processes
  • Scan Registry
  • Deep Scan Registry
  • Scan my IE favorites for banned URL’s
  • Scan my Hosts file
  • Under Click here to select drives + folders, choose:
  • All of your hard drives
-> Click on the Advanced button on the left and select:
  • Include additional process information
  • Include additional file information
  • Include environment information
  • Include additional object details
-> Click the Tweak button and select:
  • Under the Scanning Engine:
    • Unload recognized processes during scanning
    • Include basic Ad-aware settings in logfile
    • Include additional Ad-aware settings in logfile
  • Under the Cleaning Engine:
    • Let Windows remove files in use at next reboot
-> Click on Proceed to save the settings.

-> Click Start and on the next screen choose Activate in-depth Scan at the bottom of the page and then choose:
  • Use Custom Scanning Options
-> Click Next and Ad-aware will scan your hard drive(s) with the options you have selected.

-> Save the log file when it asks and then click Finish

-> When finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose Select All from the drop down menu and click Next).

Please delete your temporary files. Double Click My Computer (WinXP: Navigate to Start --->My Computer)
You will see an icon representing your harddrive (most likely C: Drive) Right Click on the hard drive icon and click Properties at the
bottom of the fly out window. One the very first tab (General) you will see a button labeled "Disk Cleanup"...click that button.
Make sure the following are checked:
Downloaded Program Files
Temporary Internet Files and
Recycle Bin

Click OK and Disk Cleanup will delete those files for you.


-> Reboot your computer.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log in this same topic.

The following are not necessarily spyware/malware, but we suggest you place a check mark next to the following entries, as these programs may be taking up system resources.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoft Works Update Detection] C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Works Shared\WkUFind.exe
(Description: Checks for updates to MS Works. Unnecessary. Removing this entry will free up some system resources. )

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HotKeysCmds] C:\WINDOWS\System32\hkcmd.exe

O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OSA.EXE
(Description: Microsoft Office startup assistant. Not necessary. Removing this entry will free up a significant amount of system resources.)

Please reboot into safe mode (continually tap the F8 key while your system is starting, select Safe Mode from the menu).
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):


C:\WINDOWS\system32\bmdog.dll
C:\WINDOWS\lbbho.dll
C:\Program Files\WildTangent<<this folder

Please delete your temporary files. Double Click My Computer (WinXP: Navigate to Start --->My Computer)
You will see an icon representing your harddrive (most likely C: Drive) Right Click on the hard drive icon and click Properties at the
bottom of the fly out window. One the very first tab (General) you will see a button labeled "Disk Cleanup"...click that button.
Make sure the following are checked:
Downloaded Program Files
Temporary Internet Files and
Recycle Bin

Click OK and Disk Cleanup will delete those files for you.

Reboot and post a fresh log. :tazz:

The following fix is from Grinler at www.bleepingcomputer.com

Use this only if you still have the download navigation failure entry when you run Hijack This.

1. Download and install Registrar Lite at: http://www.resplende...oad/reglite.exe.

2. Once it is installed, please double click on the icon that should now be on your desktop. If an icon is not there, then check under the programs section of your Start Menu.

3. Once registrar lite is opened, copy and paste the below line, into the address field of Registrar Lite.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\\AppInit_DLLs

and press the enter key on your keyboard.

4. You will now be presented with new information in the bottom right and left sections and on the right section and the key called AppInit_DLLs should be highlighted. Double-click on the AppInit_DLLs key and write down the text found in the value field. This is the file that is causing the problem. It is possible that there is no file name in the AppInit_DLLs listed in the key when you double-click on it. Please continue with these steps anyways.

5. Exit Registrar Lite

6. Be sure you're able to view hidden files

7. Create a new folder on your hard drive called c:\regbackup.

8. Run Registrar Lite again

9. Enter HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows into the address field and press enter on your keyboard. On the left side of the screen the Windows key should be selected and highlighted purple.

10. With the Windows key highlighted click on the File menu, and then click on export.

11. Enter winkey.reg in the name field and change the Save as Type to Regedit4 standard .reg files (*.reg)

12. Change the Save in: dropdown menu to c:\regbackup

13. Then press the Save button

14. With the Windows key highlighted again click on the File menu, and then click on export.

15. Enter Winkey.hiv in the name field and change the Save as Type to Regedt32/WinApi hive files (*.hiv,*.dat, *.*)

16. Change the Save in: dropdown menu to c:\regbackup

17. Then press the Save button

18. When both backups are successfully saved, right-click on the highlighted Windows key and click on the rename option. Rename the Windows key to Windows1.

19. With Windows1 highlighted, look in the right section and double-click on AppInit_DLLs and clear the text in the Value field. That is the dll you have seen previously in Step 4. If a file name does not exist there, then just press the OK button.

20. Rename Windows1 back to Windows and exit the Registrar Lite.

21. Reboot your computer.

22. When you are back at your desktop, navigate to the c:\regback folder. Double-click on the winkey.reg file. When it prompt if you would like to import/merge the data press the Yes button

23. Run Registrar Lite again

24. Enter HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows into the address field and press enter on your keyboard. On the left side of the screen the Windows key should be selected and highlighted purple.

25. While the Windows key is selected (highlighted purple/blue) in the left window, click on File and them Import.

26. Browse to c:\regback and select the winkey.hiv file that we created earlier and press the Open button. Then press the OK button.

27. Now double-click on the AppInit_DLLs key in the right section of the windows and clear the text in the Value field. If their is no DLL listed there, then just press OK.

28. Exit Registrar Lite

29. Now download Cwshredder http://www.geekstogo...=download&id=17

30. After you download the program, unzip it into the directory c:\cwshredder. Make sure all browser windows are closed and double-click on the cwshredder.exe to start the program.

31. Next click on the FIX button, not the Scan Only button, let it scan your computer. When it is done, exit the program.

32. Next, using Internet Explorer, run both of these two online virus scans:

http://housecall.antivirus.com/

http://www.pandasoft...com/activescan/

33. Please download Ad-aware from: http://www.geekstogo...n=download&id=5

34. When you run the program make sure you update it and then scan with it and fix any problems it finds.

35. Exit the program when you have fixed it everything it finds.

36. Finally, check to see if the file found in Step 4 still exists on your computer. If it does, delete it.

Reboot and rescan with hijack this and post a new log.
