    My home page keeps getting reset to a "my-find.com" location and it adds four links to my favorites. I have run Norton Anti-Virus with the latest download, run Spy Bot and Ad-Aware, with no success. I have also tried to modify the home page settings with Spyware Blaster, but nothing seems to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi randysh,

    Welcome to Wilders.

    Before you start, please unzip or move HijackThis to a separate folder. The program will make backups in the folder it's in. These easily get lost in a temporary folder.

    Check the following items in HijackThis.
    Close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://blank
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://blank

    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://blank
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = http://my-find.com/index.htm

    O4 - Global Startup: winlogon.exe

    Then reboot into safe mode, and zip the following files before deletion and e-mail them to Pieter at the address in his profile. Please include a link to this thread.

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\winlogon.exe

    This file may be hidden. See HERE for how to show hidden files.

    Then delete the following:

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\winlogon.exe

    Reboot and then post a fresh HijackThis log.

    Regards,
    Kent

    It worked! Winlog.exe was the culprit. I have rebooted and started IE under both users and it comes up clean. Thank you! Attached is the Hijack log.
