    Hijacking C:\searchpage.html

    Following is the contents of my log. I ran SpyBot-S&D prior to pulling this. My system is hijacked and my browser is constantly redirected to C:\searchpage.html. I downloaded SpywareGuard and get a notice that my browser is being changed about every 60 seconds. THANK YOU

    Delete these files

    c:\searchpage.html
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\toolbar.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\msrexe.exe

    Now Run Cwshreddder
    Close all browser windows, click on the cwshredder.exe then click "FIX" (Not "Scan only") and let it do it's thing.


    Reboot After running cwshredder and as soon as possible follow this advice:
    Now as CWS Hijacks are normally installed via the byte verifier exploit in M$ JavaVM, just surfing a page with an infected applet can install it with no user participation. So once you’ve run the above, it is vital that you go here, click Scan for updates in the main frame, and download and install all CRITICAL updates recommended.

    then
    Reboot normally &

    Download and unzip or install these programs/applications if you haven't already got them. If you have them, then make sure they are updated and configured as described

    Spybot - Search & Destroy from http://security.kolla.de
    AdAware 6 from http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download


    Run Sybot S&D

    After installing, first press Online, press search for updates, then tick the updates it finds, then press download updates. Beside the download button is a little down pointed arrow, select one of the servers listed. If it doesn't work or you get an error message then try a different server

    Next, close all Internet Explorer and OE windows, press 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds that is marked in RED.

    then reboot &

    Run ADAWARE

    Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the "webupdate".
    the current ref file should read at least 01R297 18.04.2004 or a higher number/later date

    Then ........

    Make sure the following settings are made and on -------"ON=GREEN"
    From main window :Click "Start" then " Activate in-depth scan"

    then......

    click "Use custom scanning options>Customize" and have these options on: "Scan within archives" ,"Scan active processes","Scan registry", "Deep scan registry" ,"Scan my IE Favorites for banned URL" and "Scan my host-files"

    then.........

    go to settings(the gear on top of AdAware)>Tweak>Scanning engine and tick "Unload recognized processes during scanning" ...........then........"Cleaning engine" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot"

    then...... click "proceed" to save your settings.

    Now to scan it´s just to click the "Scan" button.

    When scan is finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose"select all" from the drop down menu) then press next and then say yes to the prompt, do you want to remove all these entries.

    reboot again

    then post a new hijackthis log to check what is left

    Thanks too U for all your input. There are so many of the Hijacker things out there and it is very upsetting. I am a tech and could not find anything very helpful out there but all of your stuff worked and of course now I have all of the apps available for helping freinds and family as they all seem to get these hijack's to take over there machines...We really should be able to sue!!!!

    Thanks again keep up the good work.

    I have to say that your cookbook approach that you prescribed in the following thread (http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?p=163614) was outstanding!!! Thank you for your VERY professional and pragmatic approach to helping the common man deal with this browser hijack. Thanks again!!
