Hi bcinkc--

If your "about:blank" hijacker is returning, you're not alone. I couldn't remove mine by using either of the two methods recommeded in this thread. How I DID manage, however, to get around it is: I fould the DLL file that was causing the hijack (in my case, logoko.dll in C:\Windows\system32 as a hidden file). Once I booted in safe mode and used the DOS command to make the file visible (attrib -r logoko.dll), attempting to delete was unsuccessful, so I simply renamed the thing l0g0k0.DDL.crapware, and I've been hijacker-free since (about one week now, the damned thing would plague me every day before, no matter what I tried). Hope this helps you out! :)

You have a CoolWebSearch variant infection which requires special treatment.

=== Find Hidden dll ===
Download 'Dllfix.exe' from:
http://tools.zerosrealm.com/dllfix.exe
http://downloads.sub....org/dllfix.exe

It is a self-extracting archive; double click on it.

IMPORTANT!: Before you run this tool please close ALL running programs and ALL Windows except dllfix.

Open the DLLFIX folder and double click on Start.bat.

*Note: If your Antivirus is running a scriptblocker, when you run this tool, you will probably receive an alert warning you that the script is running. "Allow" the script to run.


At the main menu, press '1' (Run Find-All by FreeAtLast) and enter.
Let the program run.
When finished, Press 'E' to exit.

Open the DLLFix folder.
1. Post the contents of Output.txt in this thread.
2. Attach file Windows1.txt to the same post. (Please attach, do not post)

Sorry about that, the author has withdrawn the dllfix program. Here are new instructions.

=== Download and Install Needed Programs ===
Download the following: (freeware)
'Find-All.zip' and 'Salamand.zip' from:
http://www10.brinkst...last/pvtool.htm

Download 'Registrat Lite' from here:
http://www.resplendence.com/reglite

Unzip 'Find-All.zip' to its own folder.

Unzip 'Salamand.zip' to its own folder.

Install 'Registrar Lite'.


Open the Find-All folder and double click on Find-All.cmd
IMPORTANT!: Before you run this tool please close ALL running programs and ALL Windows except Find-All.

Answer the alerts then sit back and wait a few minutes while the program collects the necessary information.

*Note: If your Antivirus is running a scriptblocker, when you run this tool, you will probably receive an alert warning you that the script is running. "Allow" the script to run.


When the program is finished:

Open the Find-All folder.
1. Post the contents of Output.txt in this thread.
2. Attach file Windows.txt to the same post. (Please attach, do not post)
(If this board does not provide the ability to attach documents to your post, then please post the windows.txt file in this thread)
