    I ran Ad-ware 6.0 and then HijackThis becuase my IE 6.0 address bar will not allow me to do searches directly from the bar. It consistantly redirects whatever I type to c:\searchpage.html. c:\searchpage also overrides my default homepage periodically. I have tried many solutions but nothing has worked so far.

    Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Here are the full contents of my HijackThis log file:

    Hi amyeb,

    Welcome to Wilders.

    Before you start, please unzip or move HijackThis to a separate folder of its own. The program will make backups in the folder it's in. These easily get lost in a temporary folder or a folder with other programs.

    Check the following items in HijackThis.
    Close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer,SearchURL = c:\searchpage.html
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = c:\searchpage.html
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = c:\searchpage.html

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = c:\searchpage.html
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = c:\searchpage.html
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = c:\searchpage.html
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch = c:\searchpage.html
    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = c:\searchpage.html
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://srch-us7.hpwis.com/
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = c:\searchpage.html
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = c:\searchpage.html
    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch = c:\searchpage.html
    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = c:\searchpage.html
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Connection Wizard,Shellnext = http://us7.hpwis.com/
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer,Search = c:\searchpage.html
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer,Search = c:\searchpage.html

    O4 - Global Startup: hp center.lnk = C:\Program Files\hp center\137903\Program\BackWeb-137903.exe

    O13 - DefaultPrefix: c:\searchpage.html?page=
    O13 - WWW Prefix: c:\searchpage.html?page=
    O13 - Home Prefix: c:\searchpage.html?page=
    O13 - Mosaic Prefix: c:\searchpage.html?page=

    Download CWShredder and run. Be sure ALL other windows are closed and use the Fix button and follow the instructions you will receive.

    There also may be hidden files. See HERE for how to show hidden files.

    Then reboot into safe mode and delete:

    C:\Program Files\hp center\137903\Program\BackWeb-137903.exe

    Reboot and then post a fresh HijackThis log.

    Regards,
    Kent

    Kent,

    Thank you so much for your warm welcome and desperately needed help! Am I in the clear now? What do you recommend I do to prevent this from happening again? I run Norton Internet Security but obviously that didn't do much in this case.

    Thanks again,
    Amy.

    Hi amyeb,

    Your log looks clean now do hopefully your problems are fixed.

    Some tips and links that will help you stay safe on-line can be found HERE.

    To help keep your system clean, these are also freeware programs that we recommend:
    SpywareBlaster - will protect you from all spy/foistware in it's database by blocking installation of their ActiveX objects.
    SpywareGuard - provides a degree of real-time protection against spyware that is a great addition to SpywareBlaster's protection method.
    IE-Spyad - will put a list of bad domains and sites into the Restricted Site Zone of your IE Browser. This will help protect IE and prevent those drive-by downloads, browser hijacking, ActiveX, Java, popups, cookies, etc, from compromising your computer while you surf.

    And of course, you should have a trusted spyware removal program (I recommend having them both as one may catch what the other may not, since they update at different times):
    Spybot Search&Destroy
    SpybotS&D Setup Tutorial.
    Ad-Aware
    Ad-Aware Setup Tutorial.
    Before scanning with either Ad-Aware or Spybot S&D, remember to bring them up-to-date first.

    Regards,
    Kent
