    Hi Sling,

    A nasty one to remove I'm afraid :(

    The first step to take is to try and identify the bad (superhidden) dll which is responsible for this. Then we will try to make it visible so it's deletable.

    First download reglite from here :

    http://www.resplendence.com/reglite

    Registrar Lite:
    http://www.resplendence.com/reglite
    Install, run, copy and paste this line to reglite's address bar:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\\AppInit_DLLs

    And hit the "go" tab
    Find: "Appinit_Dlls" value on the right side
    panel, DoubleClick, copy and post here
    the following fields:

    -Size:
    -Value:

    The most important thing is that you see a dll there

    Cheers,

    Please download TheKillbox from here: http://download.broadbandmedic.com/VbStuff/KillBox.zip

    Unzip the files to a folder, then double-click on Killbox.exe to run it. In the "Paste Full Path of File to Delete" box, copy and paste the following:

    C:\WINDOWS\System32\comk.dll

    Don't click any of the buttons though, instead please click on the Action menu and choose "Delete on Reboot". On the next screen, click on the File menu and choose "Add File". The filename and path should show up in the window.
    Repeat those actions for:

    C:\WINDOWS\System32\jnng.dll

    So you will have two filenames showing in that window.
    If that's successful, choose the Action menu and select "Process and Reboot". You'll be prompted to reboot, do so.

    When you're back in windows, please run the latest version of cwshredder. Post a new hijackthis log.

    hopefully that got it
    but it has been difficult to totally remove and many people have had it come back

    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 209.66.114.0-209.66.115.255 and 81.211.105.0-81.211.105.255 and 213.159.117.0-213.159.118.255
    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 (not many as all the IP numbers are in Russia and very few russian sites have much relevance to most people)

    if you need help to configure the firewall, then please post in the firewalls forum where one of the firewall experts will advise you
