Hello there,

I have run Lavasoft adware, Spybot Search and Destroy. Sypbot returned a DSO with five files. I selected to fix the problem and ran Spybot again. It did not fix the problem. I have also read the documentation and have tried the suggestions. Nothing has worked.

In the IE browser sometimes I can access yahoo or msn, but it will not let me open anyother sites. I am using Netscape to reach this page now. It was suggested that I try to locate the hijack site. I typed javascript: alert("Actual URL address: "+ location.protocol + "//" + location.hostname + "/"); I received the following: res:/C\windows\system32\shdoclc.dll.

My hijack file is listed below. Please help!!! Thanks!

Hello rochellemax1,

Print a copy of this topic to make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps.

1 - Close all open Explorer windows and browsers
2 - Run HijackThis
3 - Click on the Scan button and when complete
4 - Put a check beside all of the items listed below
5 - Click on the "Fix Checked" button
6 - When complete and all files removed, close the application

R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - _{707E6F76-9FFB-4920-A976-EA101271BC25} - (no file)

O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {BA52B914-B692-46c4-B683-905236F6F655} - (no file)

Close HijackThis.

Make sure your system is set to show hidden files and folders:
Show Hidden Files and Folders

Reboot, on restart, restart in "Safe Mode".
Visual presentation at Symentec.

Start | Run (type) "%temp%" (no quotes)
Completely delete the entire contents of that "temp" folder.

Also, Delete/Empty your Temporary Internet Cache completely
How To: and with most operating system.

Remove this Folder and files in BOLD if still present.

C:\92a81c5946ca2f627\iexplore.exe <-- folder and all files here only.
You should find the good copy of iexplore.exe in:
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe <-- Do Not remove that folder or file
Reboot in normal mode.

Run AdAware and Spybot again. Before you do, check for any up dates.
If you still get DSO errors from Spybot this is a false/positive issue. It's being looked at.
Here are some suggestions to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future. I strongly recommend installing the following :
  • SpywareBlaster - It will prevent most spyware from ever being installed.
  • SpywareGuard - It offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • IE-Spyad - IE-Spyad places over 4000 web sites 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.
I also recommend reading this article.
How did I get infected in the first place?
Please post a new HijackThis log, and say if your problems persist.

Favorite tools: [ SpywareBlaster ] [ Spybot ] [ AdAware ] [ HijackThis ]
[ Housecall online virus scan ] [ Bitdefender online virus scan ]
[ AVG antivirus ] [ Sunbelt Personal Firewall ] [ ZoneAlarm firewall ]

My help is free, but if we have helped you in anyway,please considerDonating ,
see this topic for details.
We need members like you.
