I have had this problem with homesearch now for about 2 days. I have tired every fix I could find in this forum. The infomation was very helpful but it did not solve my problem. I have download ad ware. spybot,about blank program. My question is if I can not find a way to get rid of the about blank/ homesearch spyware ,what if I just installed a new operating System? Would that wipe out the registry files and stuff? I am currently running Windows XP home edition. I would just upgrade to Windows Pro. Would this work? If not i will post again and maybe someone can help me. I will post my HJL log. Thank you in advance. :wtf:

Reinstalling/upgrading your OS would remove the hijack, but before getting that drastic, lets see id it can be removed.
Please post your Hijack this log, so we can see what's happening.

Download About:Buster from either of the following locations.

http://www.atribune....AboutBuster.zip
or
http://tools.zerosre...AboutBuster.zip
Donīt run it yet.
How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= Please check this link for instructions on how to download, install and then use adaware. Donīt use it yet.
1 You already have Adaware installed. Make sure it's up to date. Just open Adaware and click on *Check for Updates Now* and then *Connect*. It will find a new reference-file. Click *ok* and let it download and install the updates by clicking on *Finish* .This will return you to the main screen. You should now see Reference File # : 01R333 18.07.2004 or higher listed.

2 Print out these instructions so you have them handy as most of the steps need to be done in safe mode and you may not be able to go online.

3. Next, go to Start->Run and type "Services.msc" (without quotes) then hit Ok
Scroll down and find the service called "Network Security Service". When you find it, double-click on it. In the next window that opens, click the Stop button, then click on properties and under the General Tab, change the Startup Type to Disabled. Now hit Apply and then Ok and close any open windows. This service is installed by the malware. If this service is not listed go ahead with the next step.

4. Reboot to Safe Mode
How to start the computer in Safe mode


5. Make sure your PC is configured to show hidden files

Open Windows Explorer & Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked.
Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and untick "hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
Click "Apply" then "OK"

6.CLOSE ALL WINDOWS AND BROWSERS Scan with Hijack This and put checks next to all the following, then click "Fix Checked"

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [addnv.exe] C:\WINDOWS\addnv.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [sysjb.exe] C:\WINDOWS\system32\sysjb.exe

C:\WINDOWS\addnv.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\rvahp.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\sysjb.exe

8. Double click AboutBuster.exe that you downloaded earlier. Click OK, click Start, then click OK. This will scan your computer for the bad files and delete them. Save the report(copy and paste into notepad or wordpad and save as a .txt file) and post a copy back here when you are done with all the steps.

9. Scan with Adaware and let it remove any bad files found.

10. Clean out temporary and TIF files. Go to Start > Run and type in the box: cleanmgr. Let it scan your system for files to remove. Make sure these 3 are checked and then press *ok* to remove:

Temporary Files
Temporary Internet Files
Recycle Bin


11. Reboot to normal mode, scan again with Hijack This and post a new log here.

12. Finally, do an online scan HERE. Let it remove any infected files found.
