I read through the FAQ, and tried everything suggested. Nothing worked. I continually get annoying pop-ups, some texts are highlighted in green, and the worst part is that whenever I do a google search I get a pop-up and have to click on page 2 of the search before it will go back to page 1.

Currently I have tried Spybot S&D, Ad-aware, Spysweeper, etc.

Here is my HijackThis Log:

Please help, as I really am not fond of reformatting, unless I have to.

Thanks in advance.

I think this can be fixed without a reformat!

In Add/Remove Programs, check for an entry for Wintools. If found, uninstall it.

Have Hijack This fix all of the following by placing a check in the appropriate boxes and hitting fix checked. Make sure all browser and all Windows Explorer windows are closed before fixing.

I tried doing everything you said, and I deleted almost everything. Ran into a problem though when I tried to uninstall Wintools from Add/Remove programs however. When I tried to uninstall it said "Other ad-powered software installed. Please remove it first". I then tried going to the Task Manager to stop running WtoolsA.exe and WToolsS.exe. but it said "The operation could not be completed. Access is denied". I went ahead and deleted everything else I could though, rebooted and deleted the files you suggested. After reboot I went ahead and tried Ad-aware once more but it still detected Clientman registry key, and 3 Data Miners. Not sure what to do next.

Here's my new HijackThis Log:

Yes, Wintools can be a pain in the *****!
Try rebooting into safe mode, and running Hijack this again.

Have Hijack This fix all of the following by placing a check in the appropriate boxes and hitting fix checked. Make sure all browser and all Windows Explorer windows are closed before fixing.

Went into safe mode and did exactly as you said. Ran HijackThis, fixed the problems you pointed out and deleted the Wintools Folder all in safe mode, however I ran a search and couldn't locate the msgked.exe File. I'm assuming that it was deleted with HijackThis (I hope).

After rebooting once more, I ran Ad-aware again and found 6 data miners, no Clientman registry key, Thank god. Almost all of the problems are fixed now, but there's just one annoying thing left. Ironically its the main reason I wanted to fix it. Whenever I do a google search, I still get that annoying pop up and have to click on page 2 of the initial search page to get back to the first page.

Again not sure what to do about it.

Well, there is a known google hijacker that displays a set of search results on the first page. It does not show up in the Hijack this log, so it could be your problem.

Try this:

Copy the contents of the quote box to notepad:

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{CC905FF6-B553-496C-9DFA-CFF65ADCD0FC}]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\PROTOCOLS\Filter\text/html]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\searchrep.SearchRepPP\CLSID]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\searchrep.SearchRepPP.1\CLSID]


Hit save as
save as filename: clear.reg
Under the filename set to all types, and save it to the desktop.

Close all IE's, double click the clear.reg
when asked to merge say yes.

Then search for and delete this file:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\msdhmd.dll

If you get a message that the file is in use, reboot and delete it.

See if that does the trick.
Be wary of strong drink. It may make you shoot at tax collectors, and miss!

My computer is now back to the way it was before. I gotta really hand it to you Dave38, you really were a godsent. I figure most people come here and seek help, and after they've fixed their computer they just go away without a thank you.

I know I couldn't have done this by myself, and I just wanted to express my gratitude. Thank you so very very much.


P.S. Is it alright if I delete the clear.reg that I have on my desktop now?

Yes, you can delete that file, or save it somewhere in case you catch the same infestation again!

Glad we could help!
