Hi Guys;

I'm new to this, but unfortuantely this seems to be a club everyone joins at some point. My homepage has been hijacked to "about:blank" and I get annoying pop ups in spite of pop up blockers. After updating my Nortin antivirus definitions I hnow have a pop up that says virus alert:

Object name C: WINNT\system32/wineapi.dll

Did the problem just turn up in the last day or so after updating your Norton virus?

Sorry if I repeat my earlier suggestion in another thread, but you may find this suggested fix useful if you have a Norton virus alert window stuck open with a Backdoor.Trojan alert (and the Norton help page refered to no help/did not work)

Anyway the suggetsed fix is:

Youíll need to go to the registry kill the key that launches the fdll that the virus alert is referring to (in my case it was called msik.dll, but yours might be called wina.dll, logojfk.dll or something completely different - oh, I see yours is wineapi.dll). Then you have to change security permissions for system32 files to uncover/control the file, rename the file and finally you will be able to delete the wineapi dll. Lastly use HijackThis to clean any random BHOís and also CWShredder and Spybot. Looks like the AppInit_DLLs registry key launches the dll. Here's how...

1. Norton or other virus software should have indicated a Backdoor.Trojan virus infection. Note the dll and path (for example c:\windows\system32\wineapi.dll in this case)

2. Run HijackThis and find/note the value for the above dll (for example: 20-HKLM\..\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Windows :AppInit_DLLs=C:\WINDOWS\System32\wineapi.dll. Don't bother fixing at this point it as it will just come back again, just note it so you can rescan later make sure its gone.

3. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\AppInit_DLLs (use regedit). Find and remove the key with wineapi.dll in it by first renaming the Windows folder Windows2 and then deleting the AppInit_DLL corresponding to your target dllís name. If you donít rename the windows folder, the value with your dll will continue to just come back - (you can delete it then press F5 to see it just reload itself).

4. After deleting the AppInit_DLL value corresponding to the wineapi.dll (right click it to get the delete function) rename the Windows2 folder back to Windows.

5. Now to delete the actual wineapi.dll; go to Start-Settings-Control Panel-Administrative Tools-Local Security Policy-Security Settings-Local Policies-Security Options and change the Recovery Console options (x2 - both of them) to enable from disable.

6. Go to the system32 folder and change the file permissions to allow Full Control for Administrators to Modify, Read & Execute, List Folder Contents, Read and Write. Remove all controls from file Creator Owner. If you donít have a security tab go to folder options in control panel and enable it. If you have XP home edition you might not be able to do this but donít stress about as I think these are usually the default ones anyway.

7. Reboot in Safe Mode and the file wineapi.dll (or whatever it is called) will appear in the system32 folder.

8. Rename the file to msik.junk and then delete it.

9. Empty the Recycle Bin.

10.Use AboutBuster, CWShredder and HijackThis to clean up remaining remnants.

let me know how you go or if you need and clarifications.
