    I've been hijacked by the allaboutsearching page again. This time I can't even access the internet on that computer. Here is a chronology of what I did:
    1. Went to ms website for updates....no critical ones, but downloaded some non-critical ones.
    2. After reboot, there was the allaboutsearching passthrough page.
    3. Ran Spybot S&D
    4. Ran Ad Aware and eliminated all it found.
    5. Couldn't access the internet - connection is DSL.
    6. Did a system restore to yesterday.....no luck.
    7. Reinstalled Windows XP Pro......no luck.

    Here is my Hijack This log from that computer:

    Hi Eterry,

    Check the items listed below in HijackThis, close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://allaboutsearching.com/passthrough/index.html?http://www.google.com/
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://allaboutsearching.com/searchbar.html

    O10 - Broken Internet access because of LSP provider 'c:\windows\system32\inetadpt.dll' missing

    Then reboot into safe mode and delete:
    C:\Program Files\SLOW64~1 <= the entire folder that holds Flap Save.dll
    C:\Program Files\BLUEDA~1 <= the entire folder that holds grey rect.exe

    Regards,

    Hi Ed,

    That is strange I can see the startup but no hijack and no running process.
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [boneexit] C:\PROGRA~1\BLUEDA~1\grey rect.exe

    Download the latest version of HijackThis (1.97.7) and post a new log please.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Hi Eterry,

    Check the items listed below in HijackThis, close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,SearchAssistant = about:blank
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,CustomizeSearch = res://C:\PROGRA~1\Toolbar\toolbar.dll/sa

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [boneexit] C:\PROGRA~1\BLUEDA~1\grey rect.exe

    Then reboot. Allow the changes SpywareGuard prompts you about.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Hi Ed,

    Please try to follow these instructions to the letter.
    Check the following items in HijackThis.
    Close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://allaboutsearching.com/searchbar.html
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://allaboutsearching.com/searchbar.html
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://allaboutsearching.com/searchbar.html
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://allaboutsearching.com/searchbar.html
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://allaboutsearching.com/searchbar.html
    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://allaboutsearching.com/searchbar.html

    O3 - Toolbar: TransThatDrv - {ACE6C62C-1417-1815-2C09-D347A2D61C96} - C:\PROGRA~1\SLOW64~1\Flap Save.dll

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [boneexit] C:\PROGRA~1\BLUEDA~1\grey rect.exe

    Then reboot into safe mode and delete:
    C:\PROGRA~1\SLOW64~1 <= entire folder
    C:\PROGRA~1\BLUEDA~1 <= entire folder
    C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\ <= empty this folder, do NOT delete the folder itself just everything in it
    C:\Program Files\C2Media <= entire folder, if present

    If anything does not go as expected let us know.

    Regards,

    Pieter
