Hello,

This is my first post I've seen a couple of people have had a similar problem as me. Everytime I reboot my home page changes to aaawebstart.com and I get an unwanted folder in my favourites list.

Here's my HJT log

any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Hi mdcred

Welcome to geekstogo ;)

1) You may wish to print out a copy of these instructions to follow while you complete this procedure.

2)Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following folders and files in bold (if found):


3) Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer,SearchURL = http://aaawebsearch.com/?a=2

4) Please reboot into safe mode (continually tap the F8 key while your system is starting, select Safe Mode from the menu).

Please use windows explorer to find the following

C:\Program Files\Winad Client\Winad.exe<This Folder

C:\WINDOWS\system32\ xpsp2fw.exe<-This File
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ xpsp2fw.dat<-This File

Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log in this same topic, and let us know how your system's working. :thumbsup:

Hi mdcred


Please can you submit this file:
C:\WINDOWS\System32\mousdrvr.exe Click here:


If you discover a suspicious file on your machine, or suspect that a program you downloaded from the Internet might be malicious, you can check the files here.

Indicate the file to be checked; it will automatically be uploaded from your computer to a dedicated server, where it will be scanned using Kaspersky Anti-Virus. Multiple independent tests and publications acknowledge the solution to have exceptional detection rates. Updates every three hours ensure that even the very newest viruses can be detected.

Only one file of up to 1 MB can be checked at any one time. If the file is too large, a window with an error message will be displayed. Type the name of the file in the window at the top of this page, or find the file using 'Browse'. Then click on 'Submit'.

If you have several potentially suspicious files, you can check them one after the other, or create an archive file (in zip, arj or similar format) and check that. The archive should not be larger than 1 MB.

Please give us the information that kaspersky e-mail to you

We can then finnish the clean up of your PC

Thank You
