As I can see from other posts, I'm not the only one with the Search200 headache.
I also can't remove icons from my desktop or my favorites category.

Any help that you can offer will help me greatly. I don't know how to run in safe mode or find hidden files as you have instructed others to do so if you can add this to your info, that would help me alot. :tazz:

Welcome to GeeksToGo Forums. :tazz:

You may want to print out these instructions or save them to your desktop as a text file with Notepad because we will be restarting into Safe Mode later on in the fix and you might not be able to access the Internet.

Your version of HijackThis is out of date. Download the newest version, HijackThis v1.99.0.
Be sure to replace your old HijackThis.exe with this new one by saving over it.

Place a checkmark next to these entries, close all browsers and windows, and have HijackThis fix them by clicking Fix Checked:

Reconfigure Windows XP to show hidden files:
Click Start. Open My Computer.
Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options. Select the View Tab.

Under the Hidden files and folders heading select "Show hidden files and folders".
Uncheck the "Hide protected operating system files (recommended)" option.
Uncheck the "Hide file extensions for known file types" option.
Click Yes to confirm. Click OK.

Boot into Safe Mode:
Restart your computer and immediately begin tapping the F8 key on your keyboard.
If done right a Windows Advanced Options menu will appear. Select the Safe Mode option and press Enter.
To return to normal mode just restart your computer as you normally would.

Please delete these folders using Windows Explorer(if present):

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Bolt Meow Debug Blue
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\IESERV <- folder to delete starts with these letters!
C:\Documents and Settings\Lynne\Application Data\SUPPOR <- folder to delete starts with these letters!
C:\WINDOWS\system32\vmss
C:\WINDOWS\system32\wsxsvc

Please delete these files using Windows Explorer(if present):

C:\WINDOWS\6m00mpbn.exe

Now you can restart the computer normally.
Please run HijackThis again and post a fresh log, just so I can make sure that all the malware was deleted according to plan. ;)

You can just delete it. Desktop.ini files are files used to modify view settings. In this case, the malware was probably using to to prevent you from deleting the desktop shortcuts.

In fact, now that I think about it, can you please post the contents of that desktop.ini here? You can delete it afterwards. I just want to see what it looks like.

Just fix these two entries and you should be clean:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://www.uejeuwoqj...ncUPuaNy2w.html
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.thedotcomteam.com/
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

Anymore problems?

Sorry, didn't mean tot include that one. :tazz:

Thanks for the desktop.ini. You can safely delete it now if you haven't already done so.

Here are some tips, in order to reduce the potential for future malware infections. ;)
  • Secure Internet Explorer - The most common reason that malware installs itself is that your Internet Explorer security settings are set too low.
    • Open Internet Explorer.
    • Click on the "Tools" menu and select "Internet Options...".
    • If not already selected, select the "Security" tab.
    • Click on "Internet" so that it becomes highlighted and then click "Custom Level...".
    • In the "Reset to:" drop-down menu select "Medium".
    • Click "Reset" and choose "Yes" at the prompt to reset the security settings.
    • Click "OK" to return to the Security menu.
    • Repeat the same steps for "Local intranet", "Trusted sites", "Restricted sites" with these security settings:
      • "Local intranet" - "Medium-low"
      • "Trusted sites" - "Low"
      • "Restricted sites" - "High"
    • Finally, click "Apply" and then "OK" to apply the settings that you set.
  • Windows Update - It is absolutely imperative that you stay on top of all updates to your operating system and browser. Malware authors and hackers make use of the many loopholes found in Microsoft's code. Keeping your system up to date is one of the most important steps in preventing infection.
  • Spybot - Search & Destroy - Spybot - Search & Destroy is an excellent general anti-malware tool. It has the ability to scan your system for all kinds of malware and even offers TeaTimer and SDHelper in order to provide real-time protection from malware.
  • Ad-Aware SE - Ad-Aware SE, like Spybot - Search & Destroy, is another general anti-malware solution which offers scanning. Both programs will often catch something the other cannot. It is best to use both of these wonderful programs in tandem so that you maximize the detection capabilities.
  • SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster offers real-time protection against malicious ActiveX controls. This will stop most of the drive-by malware installations that have been very common recently. The best part is, this program does not need to run in the background, so it uses no resources!
  • IE-SpyAd - IE-SpyAd attempts to stop malware infections by placing a huge list of known malicious sites into Internet Explorer's Restricted Sites list. If you accidentally come upon a harmful site, the Restricted Sites zone will hinder its maliciousness.
  • HOSTS - The HOSTS file is the Windows solution to malware prevention. By placing harmful sites in the HOSTS file, you are effectively denying your computer access to the site, and denying the site access to your computer.
  • Update Programs Regularly - Just as with your operating system and browser, the five aforementioned utlitlies are in need of constant updating. Malware changes everyday and is critical to be prepared at all times.
  • Get A New Browser - The recent outburst of malware that has taken the Internet and the world by storm. More and more people are realizing that Internet Explorer is a terribly insecure browser. Since then, several great browsers have been developed to dull the blow of malware. Besides offering improved security, alternate browers supply many new features. These are the browsers I currently recommend: Opera and Mozilla Firefox.
I encourage you to at least consider following some of these steps. It is important that everyone learn how to combat these evil creations.
