    Hello,

    I am having big problems with browser hijacker, Prosearching.com. Also Search the Web comes into a search window on the left side of the IE window. A Search toolbar comes in just under the Address icon and window. My favorites folder is modified and filled with Prosearching folders: adult, loans, gambling, etc. I have run Spybot S&D and it got rid of many things, but on rebooting Prosearching.com and the rest of the problem is back again. I did a Hijackthis scan right after running the Spybot program. I ran SpywareBlaster also and attempted to block Prosearching with it, but it comes back after rebooting.

    I need help!

    first copy these files and zip them and send to submit@thespykiller.co.uk with a short note referring to this thread
    C:\WINDOWS\UDPMOD.DLL

    Before you start, please unzip hijackthis to a separate folder. The program will make backups in the folder in the folder it's in.
    These easily get lost in a Temp folder or get scattered all over the desktop

    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

    Reboot 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"

    Delete these files

    C:\WINDOWS\UDPMOD.DLL

    and Delete these folders

    C:\PROGRA~1\Obj mpeg five
    C:\PROGRAM FILES\MULTI SEND ACTIVE

    then go to C:\Documents and Settings\USER NAME\Local Settings\Temp and select everything in that folder and delete it

    as XP will not let you delete files less than 24 hours old as it thinks it might need them please also do this
    while in the temp folder, select view and select details.
    then right click a blank part and select arrange icons by, and select show in groups and modified, that will give a list of all files in date order with today at the top of the page.
    select all the files/folders except the today ones and delete them all.

    1) Open Control Panel
    2) Click on Internet Options
    3) On the General Tab, in the middle of the screen, click on Delete Files
    4) You may also want to check the box "Delete all offline content"
    5) Click on OK and wait for the hourglass icon to stop after it deletes the temporary internet files
    6) You can now click on Delete Cookies and click OK to delete cookies that websites have placed on your hard drive

    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 01R304 16.05.2004 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 for the advice Derek.

    I have followed the instructions you gave me. However I could not find any: C:\Documents and Settings\USER NAME\Local Settings\Temp files. I accomplished the rest of the instructions. Thanks again for the help. So far your solution has gotten rid of my vexing prosearching.com hijacker!!!
    And here is the new HijackThis log after running the Spybot and Adaware programs after following your setp by step removal sequence:

    After first following your instructions I did go back and delete the C:\Windows\Temp files. I thought you might be referring to XP and not ME. My system is running great now. Spybot keeps catching "doubleclick and "avenue 1" trying to download when I browse to google and yahoo using IE6.

    I followed your last instructions, ran HijackThis and deleted the 8 files. Those prosearching urls were from the SpywareBlaster tools option where I changed some of the letters in the address to make them incorrect. Everytime I used SpywareBlaster to remove them, the prosearching urls were right back there in the tools boxes again replacing my homepage after rebooting. I have not used it again after following your instructions in the previous messages. I have downloaded cwshredder as well from your website.

    Thanks again,
    LWO
