Hello

I have had a lot of trouble with onemoresearch, and i even went to the extent of buying spyware doctor (?!?) bad idea i know, but i was desperate. Anyway, I have done the custom ad-aware scan, done the cwshredder fix and run spybot and ad-aware both while rebooted in safemode. Also gone after the individual files and reg entries, but there's just too many and i can't see the big picture anymore. I am hoping that someone might have the time to read my HJ log to tell me what more i could do. Thanks in advance even if i can't be helped!

to my horror, i looked in my registry and found a huge list of sites that were under the

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains

key where the keyvalue under trusted was set to 1.

They all have something to do with sex, ads or coolwebsearch, but do not show up on HJT, unlike the two which showed up in my primary hjt scan. This worries me, is there anything i should do about this? go through one by one and remove them from my reg? or are these harmless?

ex:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\coolwebsearch.com
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\coolwwwsearch.com

Don't touch the registry. Why doyou think they are in the trusted zone again? I'm trying to do three things at once, and I wasn't able to answer you appropriately. My apologies. My computer has those in its registry also. Do you have spyware blaster?

oh please don't apologise i am so grateful for the help i have had so far. the entries i found in my registry were in the same list of zones found by HJT the first time around. I mean, HJT found two entries under "zones", which i removed using HJT according to your advice, but in the registry where those zones were listed, there was a HUGE bunch of other ones which looked similary malicious, like coolwebsearch and stuff. Under HKCU...

ex:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\coolwebsearch.com
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\coolwwwsearch.com
