Ok, after 2 weeks of trying to be rid of this plague, I have finally run CWShredder and then Hijackthis. Here is my most recent log:

westbayou,

Run HJT and check to fix this;

These are optional because they use resources at Startup and you can always open them as needed.
** You will first have to end the processes in Task Manger first.(Crtl+Alt+Delete)
Your choice to check or leave as is:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" -osboot
O4 - Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE

Empty your Temporary Internet Files and history in Internet Options. And clean out your
%Userprofile%\Local Settings\Temp

All fixed? Please post a fresh HJT log if you would like me to take a look for a final review.

Ok, I did exactly as you described. The only hangup I had was my computer froze while deleting everything in the temporary internet files folder. However, I restarted and emptied it. The HJT scan following all this is:

My homepage is still as I set it, but that isn't unusual, it usually doesn't reload itself for a few hours. Thanks for the help and please let me know what else I need to do. I also forgot to mention that when I cntrl-alt-del I noticed that there are multiple copies of Iexplore running, but they are not visible anywhere on my desktop. As time passes, if I don't close them they will continue opening until the computer freezes.

Please move your HJT to its own folder where the backups can go.
Rightclick on an empty space on your desktop and choose New > Folder
Name it HijackThis (HJT, or whatever)
Rightclick HijackThis.exe, choose Cut.
Doubleclick (to open) the folder you created.
Rightclick inside and choose Paste.

Please run these scans:
Ad-aware *
Download Ad-aware from here: http://www.computerc...s-file-292.html
Install by double-clicking on the downloaded file.
After installing but before running, update Ad-aware by using its Globe icon.
After updating, shutdown and restart Ad-aware.
Ad-aware is ready to scan and clean your system following these steps:

Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks > Scanning Engine:
"Unload recognized processes during scanning."
Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks > Cleaning Engine:
"Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."
Press "Scan Now"
Check option "Use Custom scanning options"
Check option "Activate In-Depth Scan"
Press "Select drives\folders to scan"
Select the active partition which is usually C:
Press "Next" to let Ad-aware scan your drives...
If it finds "bad" files and registry keys, press "Next" again
Right-click in that pane and choose "select all"
Press "next"
When it asks to remove all checked items, Press "OK"
Close Ad-aware, reboot your system and go on to the next step below.


Spybot S&D*
Download Spybot S&D here: http://www.computerc...s-file-108.html
Install by double-clicking on the downloaded file.
Run Spybot S&D from desktop icon or Start menu.
Press "Search for updates" button to get list of updates available.
Press "Download updates" button.
Close all IE windows and close & restart Spybot S&D.
Press "Check for problems" button.
Have SpyBot remove all it marks in RED by pressing "Fix selected problems".
Close Spybot S&D, reboot your system.

Reboot.

Online anti-virus: Housecall: http://www.trendmicr.../enterprise.htm

Reboot.
Please run HJT and post a new log.

If, by that time your problem has returned, we can look for a hidden file that might be reinfecting. I just do not want you to have to download a lot of programs if they are not needed.

Well, I followed your directions exactly. Adaware found 213 things that I went ahead and deleted. Before I usually only found like 15 cookies, but tweaking it seemed to do the trick. Spybot found a few more things which I also deleted. When I tried to rund the online anti-virus, Explorer repetedly had errors and shut it down before it could complete a scan. HJT log is as follows:

Your log is looking better, but if you are still having problems, something is still going on.
Was that two hundred and thirteen? Wow!

Please delete your temporary files by deleting all files and folders that are in those folders (Do not delete the temp folder itself)
For example:
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\
C:\Temp\
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp\
Also delete your Temporary Internet Files, being sure to also select "Delete All Offline Content".

Run CWShredder, Adaware and Spybot (yes, again)
Reboot.

Are you still getting unwanted IE pop-ups?

Well, I got in to work this morning and suprise suprise, the about:blank hijack had taken place again. So I did exactly as you said. Shredder found CWS:Searchx once again, zapped it. Adaware found only 3 items this time, all suspected hijack attempts, and Spybot found only 1 item this time. I cleared all the folders as you said before I ran any of the above. HJT log is as follows:

I am thinking there has to be a hidden file somewhere reinstalling everything. Did I tell you my computer also will not shut down properly? I get the blue screen of death every time I shut down and have to manually turn the power off.

Hey westbayou,

I was able to remove the hijacker from Windows 98. I posted the instructions for doing it here.

Give it a try -- good luck!

westbayou,
Yes, you probably have a hidden .dll, but due to the fact that Adaware can take care of some variants,
we had to make sure the problem was going to return before you downloaded other programs.

Now do this:
Download: "StartDreck", from here:
http://www.niksoft.a.../startdreck.htm

Unzip to its own folder and start the program,

Press 'Config'
Press 'Unmark All'

Check the following boxes only:
Registry -> Run Keys
System/drivers> Running processes
Press 'Ok'

Press 'Save' and select the location to save the log file
(default is the same folder as the application)

Post the log in this thread.
Thanks.

Crap, I just did as BobO said to and everything he said would happen did, and the problem seems to have been fixed. I found a file exactly the same size as the one he did, called logi.dll which referenced rundll32.exe This didn't damage my system further did it? All systems seem to be functioning perfectly, all scans come up clear.

I have no idea if what he suggested will harm your system.
Because it was not from a reliable staff member here, I am not going to analyze it.
The program that I wanted you to use would have safely, and in less time, found the name of the file, and you could have deleted it -- that simple.
Because there has been intervention from another source which could complicate things, I'll end this thread.
