Well, you seem to be infected with BOTH CWS and VX2. :tazz: dandy. But it's okay - we'll get it cleaned up. ;)

Are you sure you did everything it said on that section? CWShredder should have gotten rid of the CoolWebSearch you're getting. Try running that again. If you need the link to the download, click here. Extract it & run the program. Click the Next Button & let it scan. Make sure you let it fix all CWS Remnants.

Next for the VX2, we're going to need more than just the Hijack Log. Please follow the instructions carefully and post again. :thumbsup:
  • Download finditnt2000xp.zip.
  • Unzip the contents of finditnt2000xp.zip to a convenient location.
  • Navigate to the Find It NT-2K-XP folder and double-click on find.bat.
  • A command prompt will open and it will search your computer for malicious files.
  • Once it has finished a Notepad window will pop up with output.txt.
  • Copy the entire contents of output.txt into your next post.

dude, very sorry for taking your time for a 'lost case'...
...the virus that infected my pc had enough time to destroy important system files, before it was removed by avg. what gave me no choice but to format my HD. ;)

good thing is, that now i made all the precautions listed in the You Must Read This... section, and im sure ill have no problems for a long time.

thank you very much for your time and assistance! :tazz:

Well, I'm sorry to hear that you had to go through the trouble of reformatting your PC. :tazz: I'm glad to hear that you've looked at our You must read this... section carefully but I have some new spyware PREVENTION programs you should have in addition to the rest of the spyware DETECTION and DESTROYER programs, like Ad-aware and spybot.

1. SpywareBlaster << This is a free JavaCool programs. This one will detect spyware before they're even installed and will not take up any system resources. A very crucial program. Make sure you update periodically.

2. SpywareGuard << This program is like an anti-virus program only it's with spyware. It provides realtime protection from spyware and browser hijacks.

3. IE/Spyad << This places over 5,000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list, some of which seem completely innocent when they're actually drenched with spyware. It prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, but you should still be able to connect to the sites.

4. Be sure to also keep up with Windows and IE updates!!!

**I see that you have a Windows XP but just the Service Pack 1. Please visit the following websites and download Service Pack 2!! We believe it's a MUST to download this.

Windows security and critical updates

Internet Explorer security and critical updates.

5. BE SURE TO HAVE SOME TYPE OF ANTI-VIRUS PROGRAM!! for some good free anti-virus programs, visit the "Free Anti-Virus Tools" link in my signature.

6. Internet Browsers: Internet Explorer is NOT the safest web browser out there. I personally recommend Firefox (click on the link in my signature), which has very nice extra features AND a much better security system. A downside is the downloading of the plugins for the new firefox browser, but those are easily accessible at the firefox start page when you first download firefox.

If you do all of the following, you should be spyware-free for a long time to come. :thumbsup: Have a good day and thanks for using our forum!! ;)
