    i had the trojan.bookmarker virus and followed the steps on the symantec site to remove it. then i ran ad-aware in an attempt to remove any additional spyware. however, i'm still having problems in that my homepage keeps reverting back to c:\winnt\secure\html.

    below are the results of hijackthis:

    Hi AML,

    will you please download CWShredder, unzip it and then close all other windows except CWShredder. Run FIX, reboot and post a fresh log

    take care

    Hi AML,

    Check the items listed below in HijackThis, close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {FDD3B846-8D59-4ffb-8758-209B6AD74ACC} - (no file)

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [rundll32] C:\winnt\rundll32.exe

    O4 - Startup: PowerReg Scheduler.exe

    Reboot into safe mode
    and delete:
    C:\winnt\rundll32.exe <= NOTE: Do NOT delete rundll32.exe in the System32 directory, which is the legitimate Windows file.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    i ran the hijackthis fix on the 3 items listed below. however, when i booted in safe mode and went to look for the rundll32.exe file... it wasn't there.

    also, there is a link in my favorites to "MyRealPics"... but it won't let me delete it. i get an error saying "cannot delete file: cannot read from the source file or disk". when i go into its properties... it's all blank. is there any way to get rid of it?

    below is the latest hijackthis logfile:

    Hi AML,

    Try this:

    Go to Start->Run and type CMD > OK.

    At the prompt type the following:

    cd c:\documents and settings\owner\favorites (then hit enter)

    now type the following:

    del MyRealPics*.* (hit enter)

    Reboot and see if they're gone.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    deleting from the command line seems to have worked. so, unless you saw something else in my last hijackthis logfile... i think that's it!

    thanks for all your help! i really appreciate everybody's willingness to assist and prompt responses. you're the best!
