    Our business computer has been hijacked by one of those adware/spyware type programs that redirects your homepage and also brings up lots of pop-up windows. I am no expert in this area, but have been learning about it from http://www.thespykiller.co.uk

    I tried running the CoolWebSearch (CWS) Shredder from this site, which found and removed CWS.Aff.Winshow, but the problem still seems to be there. I have run HijackThis and got my log file as seems to be the standard procedure here (see below). What do we need to do to get rid of this thing?

    Any help would be much appreciated since we are new to the Internet and trying to run a business. Thank you in advance.

    This is going to take more than one time through I think. Print this page so you can follow it.

    First, do a Ctrl+Alt+Del and find these processes and End Task it:


    Run HijackThis again with all browsers closed, including this one and place a check beside each of the following items. Once done click the fix checked button.

    O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [javacf32.exe] C:\WIN\system32\javacf32.exe

    ***Do not reboot yet.

    Now go online and do this:
    Download About:Buster from either of the following locations.


    Close ALL Internet Explorer windows. This is a very important step!! You do not want to be online for this part.

    Run AboutBuster.exe, click ok, then start, then OK. This will scan your computer for the files responsible for hijacking your home and/or search settings/page.

    Reboot and post a new HijackThis log along with the report from About:Buster.
