Hi, I am having problems with spyware; my homepage is always a search page with about:blank on the top, I have popups on every major site I visit, and strange files keep popping up on my computer no matter how many times I delete them.
I have read your FAQ before posting and have run Ad-Aware, Spybot, and HijackThis, and CWShredder, but still have problems with IE. I have since switched to Mozilla but I'd still like to get this crap off my machine; it's been running terribly.
Anyway, I have an HJT log (and yes it has its own folder).
The strange files are as follows: one is a folder called mosgthrsvc with two files that are always a variant of something like ntfC2D6.tmp. The other is an executable with a name like glb1a2b that is also in my HJT startup log under wininit.bak.
When I run CWShredder it asks if I want to delete a file called intelspn.exe saying that it could be innocent, but is probably not if the file's name is a long string of numbers. Can I remove it?
I hope this is enough information to give you an idea of what's going on. Thanks a lot for offering this service!

Here's my log:

I have the same problems as you. I tracked this down a bit and got this far: It seems to be a cookie?? (cgi-bin)that initiates a connection to some website which uploads a file on my computer usually GLB1A2B.EXE, or with any other name and then has a pending rename in registry to change the name to GLB1A2B.EXE. This is then run and it creates a *dll file which is loaded in to memory. This *.dll then hijacks my IE homepage to sp.htm. Which is located current users temp, for ex in C:\Documents and Settings\Admin\Local Settings\Temp (win2k). I have used Hijackthis but it seems that there is still somethig i am missing, because this GLB1A2B.EXE keeps coming back. I also have tried Ad-aware 6.0 and it finds the changes and the *dll and removes them, but after some time the hijack is back. S&D has the same features. Even CWSshredder does not help. So there has to be something that loads this hijackker back after i remove it, but what is it ???
I have also tried aboutbuster.
Anyone, any ideas
thanks
Martinrane
