I have run Ad-aware 6.0, Spybot, Trojan Hunter, Hijackthis, cwshredder, several times each, and I have not been able to get rid of the following problems:

1. My home page is repeatedly reset to the following address: res://qwvtn.dll/index.html#37049

2. I get pop ups for Home Search, Lookfor.cc and Search-to-find, especially when I run a search on Google.

My logfile from Hijackthis is below. I'd greatly appreciate any help that you can provide. Many Thanks.

Also get pop ups for Home Search, Lookfor.cc and Search-to-find.
Have tried all the programs here to remove the thing, but it comes back with another file name!

I am having the same problems. I posted my problem in a thread last night and have yet to get any help. Now that I realize I'm not the only one looking for the answer I feel just slightly better.

Is there a way for all of our problems to be put into one thread? Maybe that confuses matter further, but I just want to be sure I know WHICH post to find the answer in, once the answer is found and posted.

I too am glad to know I'm not the only one with this problem as before this problem I thought my army of 10+ programs was 10 foot tall and bullet proof. Guess not.

I have the same problem, only thing is that my home page is always set to "res://yqdxj.dll/index.html#96676". Even when I change the home page on my own, explorer only keeps that home page once, and then it's back to that other homepage. I have ad-aware as well but I haven't been able to solve this problem.

Same here. "Home Search" is the thing. Not quite sure how it got there, but my brother seems to think he may have accidentally clicked on something.

The homepage address in IE comes up as: res://befqx.dll/index.html#96676

And however many times I 'remove' it, be it with Hijack This, Ad Aware, Spybot etc.... it just respawns the next time I open IE. I run the programs again, they detect it again, it returns after the supposed deletion. Repeat Ad Naseum. Really getting to the end of my tether with it now.

Okay, I've just tried something and it seems to have wiped the ****er out - I simply did a system restore from an automatic checkpoint that was put down three days ago (I'd never even entered system restore before since buying this HD a month ago).

Didn't think it would work, but the piece of shit seems to have been vanquished. Hopefully it won't pop up again and I remain cautious about proclaiming my computer totally free of it, but it hasn't appeared at all since the system restore, and I opened IE about 20 different times just to check.

Well worth trying as far as I'm concerned.

Your browser hijack is being driven by a virus or trojan. If you delete the
randomly named dll then after rebooting a new one will be created. You
need some good anti-virus software with the latest data files. Delete the
virus then get rid of the hijack. If your anti-virus software doesn't find anything
then its not good enough.
I had an about:blank hijack which kept returning. Running McAfee with the
latest virus definitions found MhtRedir.gen and StartPage-DU. After these
were deleted I used hijackthis to remove the hijack and it has not returned.
