*This is a previous thread splintercell990 and I were working on, that we're just completing here. Just letting you know so that no one else takes the time to restart trying to fix the problem* :D


Hey there,
These problems started on the 3rd of March as far as I can tell, so this may be new to everyone (or maybe not).
I've read the FAQ and some of the articles on crapware removal. While I'm not a programmer, I can find my way around Windows fairly well, so I'll try to cooperate with any advice the best that I can. I should also mention up front that I share this computer (which runs Windows Me and AOL both, thank you for your sympathy) with two others that I am about ready to string up.

Ad aware, Spy sweeper and the free version of Pest Patrol are the only programs that this hijacker is not shutting down, and while they do find some crapware, they are not locating this problem (except for Pest P. occasionally finding something new called Bridge and another I think was called CWS.google.m3 but the others may be eliminating these as they don't consistantly show up. Alexa TBar and a monitor called KRec are the usual things the others find and delete.

As mentioned above, any attempt to download CW shred results in my internet browser being shut down immediately. While I've been able to download Sbot S&D ,spyware blaster, and browser HJ blaster, they are shutdown as soon as the setup begins. HJ this has been set up but is shut down as soon as it's started running. I was really quick and managed to complete a scan just before it shut down, so I'm hoping it finished properly. I'll paste it below

Some of the things I've looked into (please don't berate me too much for this)
-There is a hidden application in Application Data called SV host (not the SVc host I've seen mentioned elsewhere). It's 48KB and has a creation date of the 3rd Mar. when all this started. Could this be the culprit? If so, I experimented and can tell you it won't let me dump it in the recycle bin. Of course, maybe you'll tell me it's supposed to be there.

-In Internet Prop., the home page is stuck at rpgcao.outhost.info/. The jumbled letters in front of outhost always change and seem to be linked to application files in the windows/system folder with the same jumbled names. I've viewed these with wordpad and they are a very large single line of commands starting with get elements by tagname, dMtkc.index of ('music') etc. and ending with src=http:// (jumbled letters). outhost.info. I've deleted those that I find, but more appear at random.

-I've disabled the file folder _Restore through the troubleshooting option in system properties.

-Under accessibility in Internet Prop., format documents using my style sheet keeps getting automatically checked, no matter how many times I've undone it.

-And finally, one of the others here ran ad aware shortly after it was installed and I wasn't present, and erased quite a few windows options (those that display the taskbar and windows file folder icons) which I was able to remedy (I think) by running the OP system backup disc (reloading over, not deleting the windows folder- the others were screaming about losing their files. Personally, I think they've forfeited their right to even look at the system, much less use it)
Regardless, the files were restored and haven't had an impact on the problem of crapware tools getting shut down and web pages getting redirected.

Hopefully this isn't too much info. I'll take any advice or criticism anyone has to offer and check in periodically to report on any remedies and their results. Or to give more info that's requested.

Thanks,
Muriel

Hey there,
Thanks for helping! Splintercell990 was working on this with me yesterday, but I guess hasn't registered again.
Anyway, here's the new log, I'm already a couple of steps along, but these things, are still here:

-Still has svhost.exe in HJlog, even though I deleted svhost.exe from window\application data

-inatjoy.dll in c:windows\system, I think Cyril and some of the others were talking about needing to delete this as well

-and finally, when I rebooted earlier as part of the steps to replace the hosts file, I received a runtime error 5 at 00410F60----is this a problem?

Here you go, and thanks again!

Oh, do you want me to find the previous thread in the old forum and post it here to compare, or is that not necessary any longer?
