http://www.spywarein...topic=12563&hl=

Please take a look at this topic again. All is working OK except that I now get a default to a SEARCH NOW engine when I hit search inside of IE 6.0. If I use HJT and clear two of the RO entries it clears up but returns when I restart the machine. Following is a copy of my HJT log. Any suggestiong as to what else to remove to permantently get rid of this would be appreciated.

  • 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.

  • What is CoolWebSearch?
    CoolWebSearch, or CWS, is a browser hijacker that redirects your browser to the coolwebsearch.com web site and other affiliated sites. We are pretty sure now CoolWebSearch is part of a new strain of trojans that have recently been identified that all have one thing in common: they install through the Byte Verify exploit in the MS Java VM and change the IE homepage, search page, search bar, etc. Check the following list of infected domains to see which sites are known to be CWS related. It is known only to affect Internet Explorer, so those who are using Mozilla or Netscape should not be infected with this Hijacker.
    How do I get rid of CoolWebSearch?
    • Download CWShredder from any of the following sites:
    • NOTE: If CWShredder does not run, a variant of CWS could be preventing you from running the shredder. Download the CoolWebSearch.Smartkiller (v1/v2) Miniremoval Tool and save that to a directory called C:\CWS. Run the downloaded program, called miniremoval_coolwebsearch_smartkiller.exe, to remove the variant of CoolWebSearch that is stopping you from running your removal tool.
    • Save CWShredder.exe in C:\CWS.
    • Close all programs and windows.
    • Navigate using windows explorer or My Computer to the C:\CWS folder and double click on the file CWShredder.exe.
    • The first thing you should do is check for updates to CWShredder. You can do this by clicking on the button labeled "Check for update". If updates are found, click on the “Download and open the update” bar.
    • Click on the “Fix” icon and let it scan your computer.
    • CWShredder will then start scanning your hard drive for the various CoolWebSearch variants and remove them if they are found. If one is found it will tell you, otherwise it will state that it is "not present". When it is done you will be presented with a button labeled "Next".
    • When you are finished examining the results, press the “Next” button to see a summary of the fixing process.
    How do I prevent future infection?
    We strongly recommend you install the patch, available from this MS security bulletin. If you have Windows XP with Service Pack 1a, your system has no MS Java VM. Information on removing the MS Java VM completely and replacing it with the newer, safer Sun Java VM can be found here.

Thank you ... On to cleaning up the rest ...

You still have a CWS infection:
What is CoolWebSearch?
CoolWebSearch, or CWS, is a browser hijacker that redirects your browser to the coolwebsearch.com web site and other affiliated sites. We are pretty sure now CoolWebSearch is part of a new strain of trojans that have recently been identified that all have one thing in common: they install through the Byte Verify exploit in the MS Java VM and change the IE homepage, search page, search bar, etc. Check the following list of infected domains to see which sites are known to be CWS related. It is known only to affect Internet Explorer, so those who are using Mozilla or Netscape should not be infected with this Hijacker.

How do I get rid of CoolWebSearch?
  • Download CWShredder from any of the following sites:
  • NOTE: If CWShredder does not run, a variant of CWS could be preventing you from running the shredder. Download the CoolWebSearch.Smartkiller (v1/v2) Miniremoval Tool and save that to a directory called C:\CWS. Run the downloaded program, called miniremoval_coolwebsearch_smartkiller.exe, to remove the variant of CoolWebSearch that is stopping you from running your removal tool.
  • Save CWShredder.exe in C:\CWS.
  • Close all programs and windows.
  • Navigate using windows explorer or My Computer to the C:\CWS folder and double click on the file CWShredder.exe.
  • The first thing you should do is check for updates to CWShredder. You can do this by clicking on the button labeled "Check for update". If updates are found, click on the “Download and open the update” bar.
  • Click on the “Fix” icon and let it scan your computer.
  • CWShredder will then start scanning your hard drive for the various CoolWebSearch variants and remove them if they are found. If one is found it will tell you, otherwise it will state that it is "not present". When it is done you will be presented with a button labeled "Next".
  • When you are finished examining the results, press the “Next” button to see a summary of the fixing process.
How do I prevent future infection?
We strongly recommend you install the patch, available from this MS security bulletin. If you have Windows XP with Service Pack 1a, your system has no MS Java VM. Information on removing the MS Java VM completely and replacing it with the newer, safer Sun Java VM can be found here.

Post an updated log when you are done - Note, If you already have the CoolWeb Shredder - Download it again in case you have an older version.
