    HI owens,

    I moved your log over here. ;)

    I see u have a variant of the CoolWebSearch Hijacker in your log.

    Could u please download and run CWShredder at this link,

    http://www.merijn.org/files/CWShredder.exe

    then post a fresh HijackThis log.

    Thanks.

    Thanks snowboard :). I followed your advice and it found CWS variants (tapicfg, msconfd). Here is the Hijack log. Any help stopping this automatic favorites is most appreciated!

    Hi owens :)

    Your log is looking better.

    This is as far as i can advise u as my knowledge of HJT logs is very limited.

    Most of the experts live in different time zones so just be patient and one of them will be along to help u with the rest of your log.

    Thanks. :)

    Hi Owens,

    Please close out of all applications and windows and select and fix the following


    O10 - Broken Internet access because of LSP provider 'nmtracer.dll' missing

    Then reboot and repost a fresh log for further review :)

    Fix these two as well:

    But I see no reason for those unwanted favorites coming back.
