Hi ppl!!! New to the group, but saw and inquired about it, when I did a google on removal of spyware.

Anyhow, Yet there are so much spyware going on, ppl are getting frusterrated as well, like myself, and I am too, feeling like a Victim.

My homepage is hijakced by that darn Solongas and just want it to go back to Msn.ca

:grrr:
Since I just joined, what is reccamended to remove it, to rid it off my system, and what do I do in order to remove it. I do not want to really to a fresh install again, as it took almost 2 days to install all my software again, and my fiance said to try to troubleshoot it with soemone who has gone thru it and had repaired it themselves.


Let me know.

Thanks!

< I almost double posted, and new about rules from my other forum..so I figured I would just edit and add my log file from "HJT" and see what canyone can do...

If this fixes my com, I swear I will not visit sites, that I am unaware of...for my fiances sake...<lol>

Could you click here to download CWShredder by Merijn Bellekom and run it, hit 'fix' as opposed to 'scan only'. If you already have CWShredder, click 'Check for update' and make sure you are running version 1.59. Reboot when done.

Click here to download Ad-Aware and install. Before scanning click on "check for updates now" to make sure you have the latest reference file. Then click the gear wheel at the top and check these options:

General> activate these: "Automatically save log-file" and "Automatically quarantine objects prior to removal"

Scanning > activate these: "Scan within archives", "Scan active processes", "Scan registry", "Deep scan registry", "Scan my IE Favorites for banned sites" and "Scan my Hosts file"

Tweaks > Scanning Engine> activate this: "Unload recognized processes during scanning."

Tweaks > Cleaning Engine: activate these: "Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion" and "Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."

Click "Proceed" to save your settings, then click "Start", make sure "Activate in-depth scan" is ticked green then scan your system. When the scan is finished, the screen will tell you if anything has been found, click "Next". The bad files will be listed, right click the pane and click "Select all objects" - this will put a check mark in the box at the side, click "Next" again and click "OK" at the prompt "# objects will be removed. Continue?".

Reboot when done.

Create a new folder called C:\HijackThis, move the HijackThis.exe file into the new folder and run it from there. This is necessary to ensure you have backups should anything go wrong.

Make sure that you have no browser windows open as this could prevent the fix from working properly. Open HijackThis, scan and when complete, remove the following entries by checking the box to the left and clicking 'fixed checked':

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://solongas.com/hp.htm?id=9
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {A9A674BF-771F-42E5-A440-D20DDA85A862} - (no file)
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [uninstal] regsvr32 /u /s image.dll
O15 - Trusted Zone: *.greg-search.com

Reboot when done. Rescan with HJT and post a new log here for a final check over.

You've got rid of the hijacker. With only HJT running, have it fix:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer,SearchURL = http://solongas.com/sp.htm?id=9
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://solongas.com/sp.htm?id=9
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://solongas.com/sp.htm?id=9


Reboot and you should be good to go.

Daemon.

I just wanted to say thank you for any help you had given me and my fiance. The problem got fixed by her, and everything is back to normal.

If we encounter any other problems, we will be sure to call you.
