Hello -

I think I got CWS when I was on Travelocity on monday. A bunch of inappropriate windows popped up and it changed my start page. Then c:/windows/odbc.hta was running in the background. I have Mcafee on all the time. It missed it. I download CWshredder, hijackthis and spybot. I had ad aware 6.0. I ran them all and they say I am clean. Odbc.hta isn't loading in the startup anymore but I keep getting a window popping up everytime I go to a site that requires login and pw.

Windows first says www.99fh.com and then "try find again - page not 404 - error 404". How can I remove this and is it sending information to someones database?

I have not been on any sites where account info or credit card has been used since this happened.

Thanks for help.

  • HijackThis ...
    • Double click on "My Computer" to open it.
    • Double click on the local "C-Drive" to open it.
    • Click on "File" => "New Folder" and name it HJT. i.e. The folder will be C:\HJT.
    • Please download HijackThis from any of the following locations:
    • spywareinfo.com
    • subratam.org
    • tools.zerosrealm.com
  • Install/Unzip it into C:\HJT.
  • Only run HijackThis from C:\HJT\HijackThis.exe. That way we can ensure that we have the backup files available in the event that they are needed.
  • Run HijackThis, click on scan and wait for the scan to finish.
  • The "Scan" button will change to "Save Log", click on it and simply press "Save" on the window that will appear.
  • Notepad will open with a copy of the log.
    • Click on "Edit" => "Select All".
    • Click on "Edit" => "Copy". This will copy the contents of the Notepad instance to the clipboard.
  • Please post your entire log here for analysis.
