Hi,
My IE homepage seems to be hijacked. Everytime I restart the machine, the homepage keeps setting back to this about:blank search page. I tried runing several program like CWShredder and SpywareBlaster, but nothing seems to work. Please help. Here's my HJT log.

Hi Rxqueen

You have a nasty About:Blank infection. This fix requires several tools that need to be downloaded. Please download these now, we will run them later.

1)about:buster Download it and extract it to C:/aboutbuster.
2) Cleanup - Download it and install it.
3) CWShredder 2.12[Download it and save it to your desktop.
4)ad aware - Download, install, and update.


During the fix do NOT connect to the internet. Unless you can memorize these instructions, it would be a good idea to print them out, or copy them to notepad.

Boot into safe mode:
Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8 or F5. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.

Enable hidden files and folders: http://www.bleepingc...torial=62#winme

Run AboutBuster
-Click Start to begin the process
-Click OK on the Buster Report dialogue box to start the scan
AboutBuster scans the computer for malicious files and deletes them.
Save the report (copy and paste into Notepad and save as a .txt file) to post a copy for review.

Run CWShredder
-Next, click on the: ‘Fix’ button
-Follow the prompts, and press OK

Run CleanUp
-Make sure it is on Standard Mode
-Click the "CleanUp!" button

Run Ad-Aware
-Configure Ad-Aware for a full system scan
-Run it

Clean Up the left overs

Run HJT, close any open windows, and fix the following items (if they are still there):

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer,(Default) = http://clearsurfing.net/srch.php?qq=%s
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,SearchAssistant = about:blank
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,Default_Search_URL = about:blank
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,HomeOldSP = about:blank
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,HomeOldSP = about:blank

O2 - BHO: Ipswitch.WsftpBrowserHelper - {601ED020-FB6C-11D3-87D8-0050DA59922B} - C:\PROGRA~1\WS_FTP~1\WSBHO2K0.DLL
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {6D4148E0-6CD1-11D9-AAA6-0010B5514E71} - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MSJRE.DLL

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ATTRedUpate] C:\PROGRAM FILES\COMMON FILES\INSIGHT\MIGCFG\PROGRAMS\AutoUpdate.exe

O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {CD67F990-D8E9-11d2-98FE-00C0F0318AFE} - (no file)

Then delete the following files (if they exist):

C:\PROGRAM FILES\COMMON FILES\INSIGHT\MIGCFG\PROGRAMS\AutoUpdate.exe <---- just the file


Reboot into normal mode (simply restart your computer as you normally would), and run the following free, online virus scans:

http://housecall.tre.../start_corp.asp
http://www.pandasoft...n_principal.htm


Then restart your computer one more time and post a new HJT log as well as the About:Buster log I asked you to save earlier.

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN :tazz:

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use) Click Here.

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend FireFox Posted Image.
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder if everything is working okay.

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. ;)
