CWS I think...and HijackThis Won't Stay Open!!
Posted 24 June 2004 - 02:48 PM
I have looked all over these pages to find a solution to my most awful spyware, CWS, virus related problem. I have not found a solution, because all of the responses include using HijackThis and although I finally managed to get this program on my computer, it opens but then immediately closes. I think the virus is the thing closing it. Everytime I try to search for spyware removal solutions online (including this site) my internet explorer will close down. I have a randomly changing homepage which no matter how many times I change it, keeps changing back to a different address, but always the same site. Some hideous search engine with the server "outhost.info".
I had to download the CWShredder and HijackThis from another computer, burn it onto a cd and then try to load it on my computer...but my computer wouldn't read the files off the disc. So I changed their file names and put them on a floppy. So my computer reads them, I get them on my computer, but then my computer won't let them run. The CWShredder runs because it knows the computer is trying to shut it down, and it says that it finds the "googlems" file and the "about blank" file and says it fixes them, but then when I run it again, it finds them again.
I'd love to include my HijackThis log, but the program won't stay on long enough for me to get it. It scans, and then the log flashes for a brief millisecond, then the program closes!
Help!!! My computer keeps sabatoging all my efforts to fix it!!!
