hi there

recently whenever i loaded up ie i've been redirected to updatescenter.com. i did a scan in hijack this and found this bho as the culprit:

O2 - BHO: HomepageBHO - {893fad3a-931e-4e53-b515-b1426d63799b} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\hp4D24.tmp

so i removed the entry and the corresponding file in safe mode but when i rebooted the entry was back, and so was the file only now it had a different name hp2F93.tmp, so i assumed something in the registry is renewing and randomizing the bho. even with the internet disconnected whenever i start the browser it goes in to a mad refresh frenzy to redirect to updatescenter.com. then i searched for the key {893fad3a-931e-4e53-b515-b1426d63799b} in regedit and found and deleted the key under explorer help objects, but the problem is still there. no spyware programs are picking this up. can you help? thanks.

Hi duberry and welcome to the Geeks to Go Forums.

My name is Trevuren and I will be helping you with your log.

1. If you haven't logged in go to Geeks to Go and do so. Then proceed to item a.

If you already have logged in, go directly to item a.
  • Click on My Controls at the top right hand corner of the window.
  • In the left hand column, click "View Topics"
  • If you click on the title of your post, you will be taken there
2. Also, while at the My Controls page, check the box to the right of your post and then scroll down.
.Where it says "unsubscribe" click the pull-down menu and select "immediate email notification"

3. Download and run the following HijackThis autoinstall program from Here . Please choose the default location of C:\Program Files\ as the destination. HJT needs to be in its own folder so that the program itself isn't deleted by accident. Having the backups could be VITAL to restoring your system if something went wrong in the FIX process!
  • Run HijackThis
  • Click SCAN and SAVE LOG. (a notepad window will open with the log in it when you click Save Log) (Ctrl-A to'select all', Ctrl-C to 'copy')
  • POST the log into this thread using 'Add Reply' (Ctrl-V to 'paste')

DO NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES OR CLICK "FIX CHECKED" UNTIL WE CHECK THE LOG, AS MOST OF THE FILES ARE LEGIT AND VITAL TO THE FUNCTION OF YOUR COMPUTER


Regards,

Trevuren
