This appeared a few days ago .....same as others i've read on here, IE home page keeps resetting to about:blank (search for ....) accompanied by pop-ups. Seems to have slowed comp down too.
Have already tried adaware & spybot to no avail

I've read (I think!) all the FAQs and help stuff here .... but am still struggling to know what to do to get rid :blush:

Here's my HijackThis log (hope you can help!).......

Been a steep learning curve this last 9 days .... but I think (HOPE!) I've got rid of the problem :D

I read all the guides here and on another similar site (can I mention? Computer Cops) and managed to get rid of all the obvious bad ones, but the flamin thing kept coming back until I found details of the hidden file .... removed that about 36 hours ago, and no more hijacks since! The speed of the computer is astounding too, compared with how sluggish it had got with this malware lurking.

Keep up the good work here, and for anyone still waiting for help (9 days and not a single reply for me :weep: ) .....use the time to do a bit of research and hopefully you'll find some answers too. If I managed it anyone can lol :p
