Hi there,
I have been infected with this realsearch.cc virus that keeps opening multiple IE browsers. I have followed steps 1-5 in the introduction but the problem persists. (The only thing I could not get was the Spybot DSO Exploit Fix, which was not available from the link supplied)

Here is my HijackThis log. Can anybody help? Thanks.

Check the following items in HijackThis.

Reboot into safe mode and delete:
C:\Windows\system32\xpsp2fw.exe
C:\Windows\system32\edelprab.exe
C:\Windows\system32\wuclient.exe

Can you check if you still have c:\info6_s.cab and let me know?

Boot normally and download: DelDomains.inf
To use: right-click and select: Install (no need to restart)
Note: This will remove all entries in the "Trusted Zone" and "Ranges" also.

Run HijackThis again and post a new log.

Regards,

Pieter
