I've read the FAQ, tried everything it suggested, ran Spybot S&D, Adaware, XCleaner, Bazooka, and Pest Patrol, and still have the problem of Google search results being hijacked. I don't get redirected anywhere else, and don't get any kind of popups or toolbars changing. All I get is a "refresh" of the initial search results, with the first one replaced by something else (most often a link to ebay, but not always). Here is my HijackThis log file. Thank you in advance for any help.

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.

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,(Default) = ,
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [DNISAK] C:\WINNT\DNISAK.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [cmcfg32] C:\WINNT\System32\cmcfg32.exe

O8 - Extra context menu item: >>> HENTAI MOVIES <<< - java script:{document.location='http://www.archivehentai.com/ah/14/getpassword.html';}

O16 - DPF: {9522B3FB-7A2B-4646-8AF6-36E7F593073C} (cpbrkpie Control) - http://a19.g.akamai....23/cpbrkpie.cab

Reboot and delete

files
C:\WINNT\DNISAK.exe
C:\WINNT\System32\cmcfg32.exe

These may be hidden files. See HERE for how to show hidden files.

To remove the Google hijack, please do 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.

Please post a followup Hijack this log, and say if your problems persist.
Be wary of strong drink. It may make you shoot at tax collectors, and miss!
Please support SWI forum

Thank you Dave. Didn't go perfectly. Went through the steps, but... DNISAK.exe doesn't exist, nor does msdhmd.dll so I couldn't delete those. (And yes, I made sure all hidden files and system files are shown). Tried to delete cmcfg32.exe, however system won't let me - even after rebooting. Problem still exists. Let me know if there's any other info I can give. OOps just noticed you wanted an updated log. here it is...

Ok, I've narrowed this down a bit. The bogus search results that show up at the top of the listings all point to ctrstats.com (in the form of somedomain.ctrstats.com). Perhaps this will help if someone has encountered this before. (Oh, and this also happens in a yahoo search, not just a google search).

It seems that the cmcfg32.exe is the cause of your problems.

Try removing it this way:-
Reboot into safe mode (tap F8 as the computer boots, and select safe mode from the menu.)
Run Hijack this again, and fix

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [cmcfg32] C:\WINNT\System32\cmcfg32.exe


Then, WITHOUT rebooting delete the file C:\WINNT\System32\cmcfg32.exe.

See if that does it.

This is definitely a stale topic, though I thought I'd add some information here for people who are later encountering this problem and trying to fix it.

My wife uses IE whereas I use Mozilla. Apparently, we've had this problem for a while -- my wife casually remarked that it seems that Google is selling the top two spots in its results page lately. This surprised me, and so I did some searches and ended up here. Except that I didn't have a cmcfg32.exe file, though all of the other symptoms matched up.

The culprit file is any of several files of the form [filename].exe, where there also exists a windows file [filename].dll (which you should not delete!). I've heard of cmcfg32, perflib, and fxsdrv. You'll have to do a search.

Probably the easiest way to do this is by looking at the HijackThis log. I'm no expert (I just downloaded this HijackThis thing today. . . it's pretty spiffy), but suspicious targets are items in the O4 - HKLM. . . lines where the name (in []'s) matches the filename. For example, [fxsdrv] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\fxsdrv.exe. There are a lot of lines like this which are legit, but you can test them by opening up task manager and shutting them down one-by-one until you identify the problem.

It seems that the cmcfg32.exe is the cause of your problems.

Try removing it this way:-
Reboot into safe mode (tap F8 as the computer boots, and select safe mode from the menu.)
Run Hijack this again, and fix

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [cmcfg32] C:\WINNT\System32\cmcfg32.exe
