    Hello - thank you to Mr. Arntz's post just now on helping with HijackThis logs. I, too, am hoping that a staff member can review my log which follows.

    Whenever I run Internet Explorer, two things happen: (1) my homepage continues to be reset to amazingautosearch.com and (2) my Google toolbar is missing and there is some toolbar called "plantransview" in its place. I've reset my homepage numerous times and listed amazingautosearch.com under restricted sites to no avail.

    I ran Ad-aware 6.0 and have not connected to the internet since. Ad-aware found a good 100+ objects which it's quarantined/removed. As of running HijackThis yesterday, Ad-aware hasn't found any new objects.

    Thanks so much for reviewing my log! Very appreciated.

    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\SYSTEM\A.EXE

    and these folders

    C:\PROGRAM FILES\COOLMPEGNAME
    C:\PROGRAm files\Idle readme


    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

    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 01R300 28.04.2004 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

    Hello again! After a vacation, I followed your excellent instructions above and have another logfile for review. Thank you so much! (I'm unsure if I should post directly to the regular board, though -- this thread might be buried in piles from two weeks ago). ml

    Before you start, please unzip hijackthis to a separate folder. The program will make backups in the folder in the folder it's in.
    These easily get lost in a Temp folder or get scattered all over the desktop. It is not a very good idea to run it direct from your D: drive

    Run hijackthis, tick these entries listed below and ONLY these entries, double check to make sure, then make sure all browser & email windows are closed and press fix checked

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Active save] C:\PROGRA~1\IDLERE~1\Birdfivewave.exe


    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"


    and Delete these folders

    then
    Reboot normally &
