Hi there. I sure hope some of you guys can help me out here.

Ive been hijacked by this really annoying piece of malware.

It keeps changing my startpage to http://your-searcher.com/index.htm and also puts 4 links in my bookmarks. It does this aproox every 2 min or so if i change it.
Ive tried numerous spyhunter programs, including Adaware spybot and such, and nothing has helped.

Ive run Hijackthis, and this is the logfile it saved:

First of all, click here to download TheKillbox by Option^Explicit. Extract it from the zip file then double-click on Killbox.exe to run it. Make sure the 'Create backup before deleting file' box is checked. In the 'Paste Full Path of File to Delete' box, copy and paste these entries one by one, clicking 'Kill File' after each one:

C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEengine.exe

Click 'Exit' when done.

If you receive a message such as: "Component 'MsComCtl.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid." when trying to run TheKillbox, click here to download and run missingfilesetup.exe. Then try TheKillbox again.

Click File, Open!Submit and you will see a folder bearing the date that you used TheKillbox - zip it up and send to this e-mail address including a link to this thread in the body of the email.

Make sure that you have no other browser windows open as this could prevent the fix from working properly. Open HijackThis, scan and when complete, remove the following entries by checking the box to the left and clicking 'fixed checked':

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [IEengine] C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEengine.exe

Reboot, rescan with HJT and post a new log for a final check over.

Hi there. Thanks for the help.

Actually i managed to get rid of it myself, more or less the same way u desribe it, just without using the Killbox program you mention. I sniffed out the IEengine file, and it seemed to be the cause of it all.

Bu i can see from the list u post from HJT that i didnt fix/delete all the infected entries, so its still great u could help :)

Thanks again
Steven
