    Sorry Folks, I forgot to mention that I ran Ad-Aware before running Hijack This.

    Hi JCinTexas,

    You have a variant of CoolWebSearch.

    Please download the latest copy of CWShredder and run. Be sure to have ALL other windows and programs closed. Click FIX and follow the instructions given.

    Then reboot and post a new HJT log as other items will likely need to be fixed.

    Regard,
    Kent

    Hey Kent,

    Thanks for doing this. I had to run this as administrator in "Safe Mode" to keep windows from popping open. I hope that is okay.

    I ran CWShredder, it only found a few items to remove. I then ran HijackThis and got the following log.

    You have an almighty amount of runbbish running

    adaware should have got rid of most of it with it configured this way please

    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 01R280 07.04.2004 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

    Hi Johnie,

    You have a lot of problems here.... The best way to go is follow the instructions below.

    First download Ad-Aware and double-click to install.
    Then follow the following steps:

    1.) Start Ad-Aware by double-clicking on its desktop icon.
    2.) Update Ad-aware by using its Globe icon.
    3.) After updating, close all IE windows, then close and restart Ad-aware.
    4.) Be sure the following items are checked under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks > Scanning Engine:
    "Unload recognized processes during scanning".
    5.) Be sure the following items are checked under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks > Cleaning Engine:
    "Automatically mark all objects in result list".
    "Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion".
    "XP/2000: Allow unloading explorer to unload shell extensions prior deletion" <-- Check only if you have Windows XP or 2000.
    "Let Windows remove files in use after reboot".
    6.) Press "Scan Now".
    7.) Check option "Use Custom scanning options".
    8.) Check option "Activate In-Depth Scan".
    9.) Press "Select drives\folders to scan".
    10.) Select the active partition which is usually C:
    11.) Press "Next" to let Ad-aware scan your drives...
    12.) If it finds "bad" files and registry keys, press "Next" again.
    13.) All items should be checked. if not right-click in that pane and choose "select all".
    14.) Press "next".
    15.) When it asks to remove all checked items, Press "OK".
    16.) You may now exit out of Ad-Aware and reboot your system. Then go to the next section for SpyBot S&D.

    Now download Spybot S&D and install by double-clicking on the downloaded file.
    Then follow the following steps:

    1.) Run Spybot S&D from desktop icon or Start menu.
    2.) Press "Search for updates" button to get list of updates available.
    3.) Press "Download updates" button.
    4.) Close all IE windows, then close and restart Spybot S&D.
    5.) Press "Check for problems" button.
    6.) Have SpyBot remove all it marks in red by pressing "Fix selected problems".
    7.) You may now exit out of Ad-Aware and reboot your system. Then go to the next section for CWShredder.

    We will run CWShredder again to be sure nothing was left behind. Please download the latest copy of CWShredder and run by double-clicking the icon of the file you just downloaded.
    Click FIX and follow the instructions given.

    Now reboot your system and post a new HJT log.

    can you please post a log when you are running in normal mode not safe mode, we need to see what is actually running to make sure we get it all

    I did all of this in "Safe mode" .....Do I need to start over? I just logged in and ran spybot and am running adaware now. Was going to run CWShredder as soon as it is done.

    Have I thoroughly mucked this up?

    Hi Johnie,

    Welcome to Wilders.

    Download and run this file to fix Peper Trojan:
    http://www.memorywatcher.com/uninst.exe

    Download McAfee AVERT Stinger and run. If necessary, click the Add or Browse button to add additional drives/directories to scan. By default the C: drive will be scanned. Click the Scan Now button to begin scanning the specified drives/directories.

    Check the following items in HijackThis. Please note that some items may not be there depending on what the first two steps fixes.
    Close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

    C:\PROGRA~1\CLOCKS~1\Sync.exe /q

    Reboot and then post a fresh HijackThis log.

    Also download and run: http://www.memorywatcher.com/uninst.exe
    The program needs internet access to finish.
