    Hi,
    Smart-Finder.biz has hijacked my computer.
    Impossible to erase "http://%62%69%67%62%72%2E%63%63 ?" in the adress bar from the IE properties window.
    Each time I start IE with http://start-page.info/ .
    Is there sombody who's got a solution?
    Thanks

    My log posted

    My IE allways opens with "http://start-page.info/". But sometimes the toolbar shows very fast a " http://msxml.vpptechnologies.com/_1_2W88T5N07NOUZK__vpp.blaze/search/web/Search%2Bthe%2BWeb" before being changed by "http://start-page.info/".
    When I want to erase the "...%..", it re-appears while verify back .Like for my default page of "IE properties".
    In "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer,SearchURL", never "http://bigbr.cc" appears. Anyway "http://bigbr.cc" never appears.
    In "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant\ACMRU\5603\"= "Search%Assistant%" like in my desk toolbar where I have a "Search Assistant" no reward.
    In addition I could access to your "HijackThis.exe" only with Modzilla . Without it dozens of popups for hijacked computer' solutions appear.

    Hello Chris !

    Welcome to Wilders !

    Chris, It will help immensely if you post a COMPLETE log. All portions of the log contain VITAL information about your Operating System and browser, and about the version of HijackThis you are using. This information is needed to determine what may be a legitimate file or not, since every version of Windows has a different load of "must-have" files. Please post that complete log as a reply in this thread (don't start another one).

    With Thanks !
    Newkid !

    Reboot into safe mode by following instructions here: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001052409420406
    then as some of the files or folders you need to delete may be hidden do this:
    Open Windows Explorer & Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and untick "hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
    Click "Apply" then "OK"

    Delete these files
    C:\WINDOWS\twaintec.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\2_0_1browserhelper2.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\bridge.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\mshelper.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\mtwirl.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\mtwirl32.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\rbpwzoiv.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\alchem.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\wlirqpkz.exe
    C:\Windows\System32\wsaupdater.exe

    and Delete these folders

    C:\Program Files\WindowsSA


    then go to C:\Documents and Settings\USER NAME\Local Settings\Temp and select everything in that folder and delete it

    as XP will not let you delete files less than 24 hours old as it thinks it might need them please also do this
    while in the temp folder, select view and select details.
    then right click a blank part and select arrange icons by, and select show in groups and modified, that will give a list of all files in date order with today at the top of the page.
    select all the files/folders except the today ones and delete them all.

    and select EVERYTHING in C:\windows\temp except temporary internet files, cookies and history folders and delete all that as well

    1) Open Control Panel
    2) Click on Internet Options
    3) On the General Tab, in the middle of the screen, click on Delete Files
    4) You may also want to check the box "Delete all offline content"
    5) Click on OK and wait for the hourglass icon to stop after it deletes the temporary internet files
    6) You can now click on Delete Cookies and click OK to delete cookies that websites have placed on your hard drive

    then
    Reboot normally &

    Download and unzip or install these programs/applications if you haven't already got them. If you have them, then make sure they are updated and configured as described

    CWshredder from http://www.thespykiller.co.uk then Run it
    Close all browser windows, click on the cwshredder.exe then click "FIX" (Not "Scan only") and let it do it's thing.


    Reboot After running cwshredder and as soon as possible follow this advice:
    Now as CWS Hijacks are normally installed via the byte verifier exploit in M$ JavaVM, just surfing a page with an infected applet can install it with no user participation. So once you’ve run the above, it is vital that you go here, click Scan for updates in the main frame, and download and install all CRITICAL updates recommended.

    Spybot - Search & Destroy from http://security.kolla.de
    AdAware 6 from http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download


    Run Sybot S&D

    After installing, first press Online, press search for updates, then tick the updates it finds, then press download updates. Beside the download button is a little down pointed arrow, select one of the servers listed. If it doesn't work or you get an error message then try a different server

    Next, close all Internet Explorer and OE windows, press 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds that is marked in RED.

    then reboot &

    Run ADAWARE

    Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the "webupdate".
    the current ref file should read at least 01R324 22.06.2004 or a higher number/later date
    Then ........

    Make sure the following settings are made and on -------"ON=GREEN"
    From main window :Click "Start" then " Activate in-depth scan"

    then......

    click "Use custom scanning options>Customize" and have these options on: "Scan within archives" ,"Scan active processes","Scan registry", "Deep scan registry" ,"Scan my IE Favorites for banned URL" and "Scan my host-files"

    then.........

    go to settings(the gear on top of AdAware)>Tweak>Scanning engine and tick "Unload recognized processes during scanning" ...........then........"Cleaning engine" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot"

    then...... click "proceed" to save your settings.

    Now to scan it´s just to click the "Scan" button.

    When scan is finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose"select all" from the drop down menu) then press next and then say yes to the prompt, do you want to remove all these entries.

    reboot again

    then post a new hijackthis log to check what is left with the full log including the top part
