    I'm having the same exact problem as other is this forum are. Seems no one has yet to come up with a solution. And unforunatley formating is not an option for me. Let me explain a little further whats happening. about:blank hijack keeps returning. I'm running windows xp. I'm already ran ad-aware, norton antivirus, the cleaner, cws shredder, hijack. All latest versions and updated following random instructions found in this forum from various threads. I thought I had been able to fix the about:blank hijack using CWShred and Hijackthis but I returned the next day somehow. Also now 2 progams I've noticed so far (Hypersnap and UltraEdit) are giving me the "This program has been damaged, possibly by a bad sector of the hard drive or a virus. Please reinstall it." error. When using xfind it came up with kbl.dll which i tried using killbox to delete but it is as if the file doesnt even exist. Now I know kgkhk.dll is a variant of CWS but i've removed it before and its returned so I'd like to try follow an experts instructions on the proper way of manual removal. Thanks. heres my hijackthis log:

    Download this zip: http://tools.zerosrealm.com/pv.zip unzip it to the desktop.
    Be sure to have at least 1 Internet Explorer open, then double click on the runme.bat.

    select option 2 internet explorer dll and press return
    Notepad will open with a log in it

    copy & paste the contents of that log back here in a reply

    repeat with option 1 explorer dll & also post that log

    No sign of the usual hidden dll's that reinstall it
    See if this helps
    to see if we can prevent the cws hijackers reinfecting you try this
    a workaround seems to be install a good firewall, lists here http://www.wilders.org/firewalls.htm if you haven't already got one and block these ranges of ports, both incoming and outgoing and
    that stops the known cws servers responding or the hidden files on your computer updating. This works sometimes but not always, but it's a help. The problem with this approach is that some good sites might also be blocked
    then when we have a guaranteed working cure for it we can advise how to fully remove it.

    First download CWshredder from https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=14086

    boot into safe mode by following instructions here: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001052409420406
    then as some of the files or folders you need to delete may be hidden do this:
    Open Windows Explorer & Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and untick "hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
    Click "Apply" then "OK"

    Run hijackthis, tick these entries listed below and ONLY these entries, double check to make sure, then make sure all browser & email windows are closed and press fix checked

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = res://C:\WINDOWS\System32\kgkhk.dll/sp.html (obfuscated)
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://C:\WINDOWS\System32\kgkhk.dll/sp.html (obfuscated)
    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = about:blank
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = res://C:\WINDOWS\System32\kgkhk.dll/sp.html (obfuscated)
    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = about:blank
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = res://C:\WINDOWS\System32\kgkhk.dll/sp.html (obfuscated)
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://C:\WINDOWS\System32\kgkhk.dll/sp.html (obfuscated)
    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = res://C:\WINDOWS\System32\kgkhk.dll/sp.html (obfuscated)
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,HomeOldSP = about:blank
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {6FDA18D2-81E9-4DA1-905A-FD4744934B2C} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\kgkhk.dll
    O16 - DPF: {02BED220-FBC7-4392-93A2-3A50B056F78E} - http://down.plaxo.com/down/release/instub.cab
    O16 - DPF: {5C8D0494-02F2-40E9-8EBF-07FED5919629} - http://www.goodcontacts.com/install/GoodContacts.cab

    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.

    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 &


    Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the "webupdate".
    the current ref file should read at least 01R300 28.04.2004 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"


    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"


    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
