Posted 26 June 2004 - 10:41 AM

For about the last week I've had a problem with an About:Blank hijacker. It flares up when I use Hotmail so at first I thought it was an intrusive popup, but your forum has told me differently.

I've used all the advice I can from this forum, but I still can't eliminate it. I feel I need personalized advice so I've decided to post my reports.

I've been running adaware almost constantly, and I've noticed that activating IE will reinstall this one bit of spyware:

Vendor Type Category Object Comment
CoolWebSearch RegValue Malware HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE:SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\ "HOMEOldSP"

I've found I can't use FindnFix because my notepad program has disappeared.

Here is my Hijack This log:

This will take couple or more steps to fix. Be sure to Follow the next set of steps carefully, in the exact order specified:
  • Open the "FINDnFIX\Keys1" Subfolder!
  • Locate the "MOVEit.bat" file, Right-Click on it and select => "edit". The file will open as empty text file.
  • Copy and paste the entire highlighted line in the following quote box
    (all one line) into that blank 'MOVEit' file:

    move C:\WINDOWS\System32\WDM.DLL C:\junkxxx\WDM.DLL

  • Save the file and close.
  • Get ready to restart your computer.
  • In the same folder, DoubleClick on the "FIX.bat" file.
  • You will be prompted by popup Alert to restart in 15 seconds.
  • Allow it to restart the computer!
  • On restart, Navigate to: C:\FINDnFIX\ main folder:
  • DoubleClick on the "RESTORE.bat" file.
  • It'll run and produce new log. (log1.txt) post it here!

Do this ... Open Notepad and paste in the following:
move C:\WINDOWS\System32\WDM.DLL C:\junkxxx\WDM.DLL

(Copy and paste from here).

Save the files as c:\MOVEit.bat.

Click on "Start" = "Run" and type in cmd and press okay - This will open a command prompt. Type in:
copy c:\MOVEit.bat C:\FindnFix\keys1\Moveit.bat
and press enter - You should be prompted to overwrite the file - Say yes and proceed with the instructions.

i also believe i am in a similar problem and i have found that the notepad shortcuts on my machine have been canged to point to a file in windows\system32 called
actmovie.exe

go to start/all programs/accessories/notepad and right click on notepad and check click the properties menu selection you will see that the file path for the shortcut is C:\\windows\system32\actmovie.exe

and that it shows %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH% as the start in

just posting this as a heads up, i have no more info as to what to do from here.
oh yes on google i found actmovie.exe called a virus but little other info about it

While I appreciate the assist, my most pressing concern is removing the Hijacker from my computer.

Can anyone assist me with that?

even_Better - Your persistence is pushing the thread even though I told you I would help and I am helping makes me very reluctant to continue. I am monitoring the thread, when I sign on I will respond and finish cleaning it up - PLEASE do not respond every hour or two asking "ANYONE??" <= That is just rude and inconsiderate as I am not on 24 hours a day.

That off my chest - To continue with your fix ...
Open the FINDnFIX\Files2< Subfolder and run the => "ZIPZAP.bat" file. It will quickly clean the rest.
When done, Restart your computer and Delete and entire 'FINDnFIX' file+folder(s) From C:\.
Post a follow up HijackThis log when done!

You will be prompted to email the file - Please do so.

I should apologize. I was unaware my problem was being monitored, but rather I thought one needed to shout to be heard in the forum. If I come here with a problem in the future, I shall act with considerably more patience.

My about:blank camper seemed to have disappeared before I even restarted my computer, so I thank you for that.

As requested here is my supplemental Hijack This log:

Not a problem - When I work on a case - The next time I sign on, those cases are all in a list and if there have been any responses - They are my first priority.

Your log still shows the infection? It may be a phantom entry but to be sure can you do this first step again ...
Please download "FINDnFIX.exe". Run the "!LOG!.bat" file and post the results into this message for further review.

If nothing shows up, we can get rid of the entries.
