I have been unable to remove 4counter from my homepage for quit some time. I have also just loaded windows xp to my computer and had problems with the sasser worm. I went through the suggest steps to get rid of the worm and it seemed to work but I am still having other computer problems. The webpage anglefire comes up without warning and my cd drive will not read any discs. I am not sure if these are connected or not but both problems started today. I ran hijackthis and will post the results. I am hoping to eliminate most if not all of my problems with your help.

Thank you

Hey

4-counter.com is a CWS variant, please download cwshredder here http://www.spywarein.../CWShredder.exe save it to your desktop.

Open it up, make sure it's version 1.59.1. Uncheck the box about the recycling bin. Then make sure no websites are open and click fix-->. When it's done restart your computer.

You have a variant of the Gaobot worm and a mass mailing worm called whitebait. Scan with hijackthis and fix the following:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoft Update] winsys32.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Windows System Manager] winsystem.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Microsoft Update] winsys32.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Windows System Manager] winsystem.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Microsoft Update] winsys32.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Windows System Manager] winsystem.exe

Reboot your computer.

Find and delete the following files:


winsys32.exe
winsystem.exe


Empty your recycling bin.

Post a new log please, thanks.
