Hi all,

I have bee trying for two days to get this variant off my PC. I've ran SpyBot, Ad-Aware CWS Shredder and HijackThis. CWS shredder says he removes it, but fiteen seconds later it pops back up in BHODaemon. In BHODaemon it appears as:

File Name {Not found} -Malware 1.00.07.dll,*.**.**.dll(*=digit) - CoolWebSearch parasite variant

After I run CWS shredder this entry disappears but then reappears a little later. Below is my Hijack this log. Any help would be appreciated!!

have you tried using the new Key Permissions Function of 2k And Xp?
2k u need to use - Regedt32 and Xp - Regedit.

Goto The HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Run*

Mark Each of those Keys as Read only.

Then Find Those Guids' [Superlong number] and Lock them After Removing the
Path to the .exe .dll or what ever it is.
And Also LOCK THE FILE ITS SELF :) Make it Not Readable.

Remove all Permissions from it. Wich should help you remove it.

Dispite Windows Flaws It Does have the utils to Do More than most think.
I Dislike M$ Software But it Runs the market.

Hope this helps.
