Hello,

My IE explorer was recently hijacked by about:blank, and i have tried various programs to get rid of it including Search and Destroy, CWShredder, and HijackThis. Sometimes the problem will go away for a bit, but then inevitably it will come back. I have looked through several of the posts on this site, and have tried some of the methods others have been given, but it hasn't worked in my case. Could anyone assist me in removing this problem? Thank you very much in advance for your help.


Here is my HiJackThis log:

THe program you were using has been updated. Please delete the Beta-Fix folder, then follow the instructions below. Also, to save time, please run HiJackThis again and post it as well as the log from FindnFix.

Download FindnFix.exe from here:
http://freeatlast100....com/index.html or
http://downloads.sub...rg/FINDnFIX.exe

Double Click on the FindnFix.exe and it will install the batch file in its own folder.

Open the FindnFix folder and double click on !LOG!.bat
IMPORTANT! Before you run this tool please close ALL running programs and ALL open windows except for the FindnFix folder.

Relax, 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 FindnFix folder.
1. Post the contents of Log.txt in this thread.
2. Attach file Win.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 Win.txt file in this thread)

=== Step 2 - Delete Hidden DLL ===
Open the FindnFix folder.
Open the keys1 folder.

If you receive an error while trying to edit, see below for instructions.
RightClick on the MOVEit.bat file, select--> edit.
Copy and paste this line into the batch file, replacing the line there.

move %WinDir%\System32\MSOKHP.DLL %SystemDrive%\junkxxx\MSOKHP.DLL

Save the file and close.

Get ready to restart!
Still in the keys1 folder, double click on FIX.bat.
You will get an alert of ~20 secs before reboot.
Allow it to reboot!

On restart, Open the FindnFix folder.
DoubleClick on RESTORE.bat.
When it is finished, open the FindnFix folder.
Post the contents of Log1.txt in this thread.


=== In the Event and Error Occurs Trying to Edit ===
Occasionally when trying to edit the MOVEit.bat file the following error occurs: "Windows cannot find "C:FINDnFIX\keys1\MOVEit.bat. Make sure you typed the name correctly then try again."

If that happens, follow these steps instead:
Open the FindnFix folder.
Open the keys1 folder.

Double click on FIX.bat
You will get an alert of about 15 seconds before reboot
Allow it to reboot!

On restart, open Explorer and navigate to C:\Windows\System32 folder
Find the ****.DLL file (it should be visible now)
Highlight the file and using top menu, click Edit --> Move to folder...
Select C:\junkxxx as destination.
Move the file.

Open the FINDnFIX folder again.
Double-click on RESTORE.bat
When it is finished, open the FindnFix folder.
Post the contents of Log1.txt in this thread.

You do great work!! The super hidden dll is gone! Now to finish cleaning.

Open the FindnFix folder.
Open the Files2 folder.
Double Click on the ZIPZAP.bat.

It will quickly clean the rest and will make a copy of the bad file(s) in the same folder (junkxxx.zip) and open your email client with instructions.

Simply drag and drop the junkxxx.zip file from the folder into the mail message and submit to the specified addresses.

Please be sure to include a link to your log file in the email.

When done, please delete the entire FindnFix folder.

=== Clean Remaining Infection ===
Please Download CoolWebShredder, from
http://www.merijn.or.../cwshredder.zip
http://www.zerosreal.../CWShredder.zip

Extract CWShredder to its own folder,
Click the 'Fix ->' button.
Make sure you let it fix all CWS Remnants.

Next:
Download the latest version of Ad-Aware at
http://www.lavasoft....ftware/adaware/

After installing AAW, and before running the program, you NEED to FIRST update the reference file following the instructions here: http://www.lavahelp....dref/index.html

Select 'custom options'.
Select your drive, scan and fix all it finds.

Last:
HiJackThis version 198.0 is now available.
If you do already have it installed, download it from here:
http://209.133.47.12.../HijackThis.exe
http://downloads.net.../HijackThis.exe
http://www.computerc...s-file-328.html

Close all open windows except HiJackThis and press 'Fix Checked'.

Reboot.


Here are some simple steps you can take to reduce the chance of infection in the future.

1. Visit Windows Update: <-- YOU NEED TO DO THIS!!
Make sure that you have all the Critical Updates recommended for your operating system and IE. The first defense against infection is a properly patched OS.
a. Windows Update: http://v4.windowsupd.../en/default.asp

1. Adjust your security settings for ActiveX:]
Go to Internet Options/Security/Internet, press 'default level', then OK.
Now press "Custom Level."
In the ActiveX section, set the first option, 'Download signed controls', to 'Prompt; set the
second option, 'Download unsigned controls', to 'Disable'; and finally, set 'Initialize and Script ActiveX controls not marked as safe" to 'Disable'.

2. Download and install the following free programs
a. SpywareBlaster: http://www.javacools...areblaster.html
b. SpywareGuard: http://www.wildersse...ywareguard.html
c. IE/Spyad: https://netfiles.uiu...ww/resource.htm

1. Install Spyware Detection and Removal Programs:
You may also want to consider installing either or both of AdAware (free version) and Spybot S&D (freeware). Use these programs to regularly scan your system for and remove many forms of spyware/malware.
a. AdAware: http://www.lavasoft.de/
b. Spybot S&D: http://security.koll...n&page=download


For more information about Spyware, the tools available, and other informative material, including information on how you may have been infected in the first place, please check out this link: http://forum.gladiat...?showtopic=9857


Good luck, and thanks for coming to our forums for help with your security and malware issues.

Thank you all so much for your help. My about:blank is completely gone.... I know i couldn't have figured out how to get rid of it without you, even being computer literate. You are doing such an awesome work at this site. Your effort is greatly appreciated.
