Running WinXP SP1

I give up. :grrr: I have tried every single thing I could find out there to try to remove the CWS virus. I scanned (and cleaned) with Ad-Aware, removed all random R0s and R1s with HijackThis, and finally scanned and cleaned the system with About:Blank in ALL profiles and in Safe Mode. To be sure, I did the same thing again to ensure that my system came up clean, which it did. Not getting my hopes up, I loaded up IE and it opened up fine. Closed it, did it again, and suprise suprise, HomeSearch is back.

After reading through some of the other threads, I'm out of ideas and this nifty little variant won't die with any of the tricks I've read here. Please help! :unsure:

Oh and I figured it might have gone without saying, but you can never be too sure...I used CWS Shredder 1.59.1 before doing all of the aforementioned steps but to no avail.

Hi

Could you download and setup Adaware as stated in the instructions below, but do not use it yet.... this is for later on! :cool:

Scanning in Ad-Aware:

(please ensure you have version 6 build 6. 181)
Downloads - Support - Lavasoft#free: http://www.lavasoftu.../download/#free

The following explains how to set Ad-aware's settings to perform a "Full Scan."
And some settings that should be made prior to using the first time.

In Ad-aware click the Gear to go to the Settings area.
The following items should be on a green check, not on a red X.
Under the Scanning button:
Scan within archives

Under Memory & Registry, Check EVERYTHING

In Check Drives & Folders, make sure all of your hard drives are selected

Under the Tweak button...
Some of these may not be an available option, depending on your version of Ad-aware and your version of Windows. Do not be concerned if you cannot select a certain item.

In Scanning Engine:
Unload recognized processes during scanning

In Cleaning Engine:
XP/2000: Allow unloading explorer to unload shell extensions prior to deletion
Let Windows remove files in use at next reboot

UNCHECK Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion

Click Proceed to save these settings.
Now press "check for updates Now" Always check before scanning.

Then please download About:Buster and unzip it to your desktop. Start it, hit Ok, Start, And Ok again to start the scan. It will generate a log, save that log somewhere convienient for now.

Then start Adaware. Click start [x] choose use default scanning options
click next and let it fix anything it finds.

Reboot and post a fresh hijack log along with the About:Buster log please

{edited for typo}

POST-reboot Hijack log is forthcoming.....

*NOTE* During this process I have decided to use Netscape instead of IE just because I'm afraid that after every reboot the homepage will reset itself before I come back here. Will this be a problem?

Thanks for your help!

don't worry, it sometimes takes a few goes to get rid of this, you have a few other things in your log so we will have a general clean up with hijackthis then we can concentrate on the major bad guy here. :cool:

Boot into safe mode and run hijackthis again, make sure all other browsers and windows are closed except for hijackthis, put a check against the following and click fix checked.

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\gewcy.dll/sp.html#37049

If you haven't set the policy to fix your home page then fix these two too... if you have set the policy using spybot or someother software, could you disable it for now.
O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions present
O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present

Then still in safe mode, find and delete these files and folders.

C:\WINDOWS\system32\ipdt.dll <-- file
C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\Viewpoint Manager <-- folder
C:\WINDOWS\atltz32.exe <-- file
C:\WINDOWS\sdknf.exe <-- file

If, on reboot the problem returns, and you see entries the same as or similar to the R1 and R0 items... could you boot back into safe mode and run About:Buster in safe mode.

Then reboot into normal mode and post a fresh log.
