My browser is being hijacked by "res://socna.dll/index.html#96676" but that ".dll" file gets regenerated. :unsure: Here is my HJT log but whenever I delete the bad files they are regenerated just like the about:blank problem, but I cannot get rid of this one :techsupport: also startup Monitor keeps asking if i want "msfx32.exe" (or something like that) of course i dont let it run but it keeps appearing. thank you so much in advance.

I think that the thing that you are missing is running fixdll. Here is the order that did it for me.

Run HJT and "fix" all of the R0 and R1 lines.

Then change your homepage manually in your Control Panel>Internet Options

Then run dllfix. That worked for me. At the first option, choose 2 for fix. At the second prompt, select 2. "fix without DLL name ..." and let it run. It will probably need to reboot and control your startup to get rid of the hidden .dll generating files.

After you are back up, check your homepage setting again in control panel, run Shredder one more time and then run Adware or Spybot S&D and then see if your browser stays hijack free. (I found Adware to be more effective. There is presently a bug in Spybot that gives my system false readings of DSO exploits. The Spybot folks are working on it but the patch isn't done yet.)

I am far from an expert, but that sequence worked for me with dealing with CWS search X

Make sure you have the software downloaded, unzipped and ready to go before you start this sequence if you haven't downloaded the programs already. dllfix was the silver bullet for me. Hope this helps!

:techsupport: thanks for taking the time to help! After running fixdll, it removes a few things but then gives me the prompt "Error: The system was unable to find the specified registry key or values." and after rebooting everything is regenerated again. :techsupport:
