Hi all, new poster here, and I have been trying to get of this "wonderful" hijacker for a few weeks now and simply cannot. The CW Shredder does not do it, nor does SpySweeper (gets rid of it, but comes back with IE). Someone please help me out, I did do the Hijckthis log a few weeks ago, and still have it, but does that need done again too? Thanks in advance :)

Hello

Let's have a look at a HijackThis Log.

If you don't already have HijackThis, Download HijackThis from http://www.downloads.../hijackthis.zip and create a log. Run the program, and press Scan. You will notice the Scan button will turn into a "Save Log" button. Save the log and Post that log onto this topic. DO NOT Delete or modify anything yet, as some of it is needed to keep your system in Good Shape.

Print out these instructions so you can read them while you clean your system.


Now close all open windows AND browsers and check these items for HJT to fix:

Please reboot into safe mode - How do I boot into "Safe" mode?


Delete this file:
C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\LGQ.EXE

Delete folder
c:/spex


You may need to show hidden files to delete them.How to show all hidden and system files

The following DIRECTORY CONTENTS (But not the directory) need to be deleted while in safe mode.
* C:\Windows\Temp\
* Go to Internet Options and click delete files.
* Empty your "Recycle Bin".



Reboot into normal mode and post a fresh log in this thread to give you further recommendations.

Good job!

This item is considered to be resource hog that are not needed and it may be worthwhile to fix it with HJT. You will still be able to start it manually if you need it:
O4 - Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.
To protect yourself further:
  • IE/Spyad <= IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
I also suggest that you delete any files from "temp", "tmp" folders. In Internet Explorer, click on "Tools" => "Internet Options" => "Delete Files" and select the box that says "Delete All Offline Content" and click on "OK" twice. Also, empty the recycle bin by right clicking on it and selecting "Empty Recycle Bin". These steps should be done on a regular basis.

And also see TonyKlein's good advice
So how did I get infected in the first place?

Good luck :D

Much thanks for your help!!!!!!!!!! A few questions though. With those suggestions you made with the other spyware programs and such, should I still keep Spy Sweeper and Window Washer? Also, having done all that, when I go to Control Panel, it takes several seconds, maybe a minute, before it "loads" comes onto the screen, and when I do the Internet Prop. and click on clear history, same thing happens, but I have to use CTL ALT DLT to clear it. Whats up with that? Again, thanks for the help :)
