Hello,

I have followed the all the required steps that were outlined in the "Before Posting A Hijackthis Log".

I installed Microsoft AntiSpyware and Trend Micro PC-cillin in an attempt to remove a IE Hijacker. Durring this process sp2 was installed. The IE Hijacker seems to have beed removed but now when i try to access my Control Panel as well as other items under start up i get an error dialog box that references "Dr Watson Postmortem Debugger".

Dr Watson Postmortem Debugger has encounter a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

It then gives me the option to send a repot or not to send report. I have tried both and each time the system bedomes non responsive.

Please help

Hi jsb44cke,

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 2.11 - Download it and save it to your desktop.
4) Ad-Aware - Download, install, and update.

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

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.

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

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\Main,Search Bar = res://C:\WINDOWS\otlud.dll/sp.html#28129

O16 - DPF: {DBA230D1-8467-4e69-987E-5FAE815A3B45} -

Then delete the following files (if they exist):

C:\WINDOWS\otlud.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\sysab32.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\atler.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\tibs5.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\netapi.exe

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
http://housecall.tre.../start_corp.asp

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.

[edit]As there has been no response from the original poster, this thread is now closed. If you have any other problems, please post a new topic.
