Hi there, i've just joined your forum after checking it out a number of times and must say I'm really impressed.

I have had a problem for a while now regarding an unknown website called mysearchweb2.com.

My home page was originally set to google but every time I started Internet Explorer a sort of (fake, i presume) error page would appear with different links to e.g. Adult, Games etc. to the mysearchweb2.com website.

I am assuming this is a browser hijack and have since fixed the main problem by visting your forum, following your instructions and using software such as AdAware, SpyBot, SpySweeper, SpyWareGuard, SpyWareBLaster, CW Shredder and HijackThis.

I must mention that neither AdAware, SpyBot or SpySweeper managed to pick this up. The problem was solved by mainly deleting values from regedit/system registry.

After hours and hours of messing with my PC I have managed to apparently solve this problem but it refuses to go away completely as every time XP starts a SpyWareGuard window appears informing me that my homepage has been changed to mysearchweb2.com. I do have the option to Accept or Decline the changes and always decline so I am not having any serious problems but I would like to get rid of this altogether i.e. I don't want the window to appear everytime I load up my PC because this tells me that a hijack is being attempted every time.I also have the Norton Internet Security 2004 package installed (including antivirus, firewall and antispam)

Sorry for any inconvenience but I would like it if you could also check my latest Hijack this log and also the programs that startup (viewed with msconfig)

I am also quite suspicious about the following startup programs:

dumprep 0 -k (%systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -k)

There are others but i have disabled them, SpyWareGuard is enabled

I would really appreciate any help and must say that your site is really impressive and helpful

May thanks
