    Hey- My search bar, homepage, and search page are constantly being reset to Myposkovic.com, a search engine. When downloading Hijackthis, I noticed that he said the next version of CW shredder would cover it..so I'd think this is a repeat-post of sorts. If there's already been a documented fix to this issue on the boards, a link would be great. Otherwise..here's my log file, help me help me, please!

    I tried to use the walkthrough on the Merijn homepage, but to no avail. I'm thinkin its the IEengine thread, but dont wanna destroy that on a hunch. Thanks in advance~

    Download this removal tool: http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/downloads/tools/CWShredder.exe. Once downloaded - run the program and press "Fix" rather than just scan. Before pressing "Fix" you need to close all browser windows. Let the program do its thing - you will be able to follow its progress. Click "next" once the fixing is done - then "exit".

    Make sure you are configured to SHOW ALL FILES AND FOLDERS, including System and Hidden Files. If you don't know how to do that, check this link and follow the step-by-step directions for your Windows version.

    Next - Run HijackThis, scan and when complete, remove the following entries by checking the box to the left and clicking "Fix checked":

    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://mypoiskovik.com/sp.htm
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = http://mypoiskovik.com/index.htm
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [IEengine] C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEengine.exe
    O16 - DPF: {56336BCB-3D8A-11D6-A00B-0050DA18DE71} (RdxIE Class) - http://software-dl.real.com/290fb91...ip/RdxIE601.cab

    Reboot in Safe Mode . Find and delete:

    C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEengine.exe

    ... also look for and delete if you find them:

    winlogin.exe (carefull - winlogon.exe is legal, winlogin.exe is illegal)

    While still in safe mode would you please run CoolWeb Shredder one more time and let it FIX all problems.

    RESTART back in Normal mode. Don't open a browser yet.

    Instead, access your "Internet options" via Start -> Control Panel and under the "Programs" tab, "Reset Web Settings".
    Under the "General" tab => "Delete files" and "Reset home page".

    Post back a fresh Hijackthis log.
