Posted 30 June 2004 - 04:54 AM

My PC was hijacked by, I think, CWS and Home Search Assistent. I ran Ad-aware and it found and removed things. But the problem continued to return as soon as I rebooted. I ran CWShredder and it found nothing. I then loaded and ran Hijackthis and I used it to repair several things. Right now the problem has stopped. However, the HSA is still on my PC and I had to unenable the "Enable Third-PartyBrowser Extensions". As soon as I re-enable it, which is needed for example to use the Google toolbar, the hijack problem returns. I would like someone to review the following Hijackthis log to tell me if there is more that I can fix to completely get rid of this malicious pest. The log was generated with the "Enable Third-Party Browser Extensions" turned off.

Thanks.

Run a new HijackThis scan and mark these items for removal:

Make sure all browser and Windows Explorer windows are closed, and click on Fix Checked.

Close HJT when done.

Reboot your computer, open Windows Explorer and delete this file:

C:\WINNT\system32\mfcfc32.dll

Now, re-enable Third-Party Browser Extensions.

Post a followup HijackThis log with Third-Party Browser Extensions enabled, and say if your problems persist.

mrman,

Don't think I'm insensitive to your problems, but please read the FAQ and the LARGE RED TYPE at the top of the page that says:
