    Hi,

    I have had several problems with my PC recently including the about:blank problem, but I thought that I had eradicated everything. However, I am having several new problens now:

    i) most times (but not every time) when I go-online and start up IE, IE
    cannot find any pages, it reports an error along the lines of "Cannot Find
    Search Page". When I run HJT I see an entry which is not present before
    I start up IE, extraced below from the full-log

    ii) At other times, when I am offline, my PC tries to connect to a web page,
    and a "Web Page Unavailable While Offline" window pops up. This happens
    every few hours.

    Maybe these problems are related - I would be extremely grateful if someone could suggest ways to overcome these problems as they are becoming quite frustrating.

    The suspicious HJT extract is below:

    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{E27FFDCA-0569-41F6-8302-E89B1EFFEDO8}:NameServer= 195.92.195.94 195.92.195.95

    This problems persists after I run Ad-Aware, Spyboy S&D and CWSdhredder.

    Help gratefully received.

    Hi

    Did they come up with anything? Have you tried scanning in Safemode. :)

    You can try Ewido trojan scanner(free 14 day trial), and see if it comes up with anything. :)

    From your description, it sounds like there is still more spyware on your system. If you have not posted a HijackThis log for review at one of the better anti-spyware forums yet, you should do that. There is more to cleaning some of the newer and more damaging infections then just removing the items that are visible with HJT. Very frequently there are many other "manual" steps beyond checking items in HijackThis and clicking fix, or running CWShredder, Ad-aware and Spybot. (These are often part of a fix, but not the entire fix!)

    However, I'm afraid we have discontinued the HijackThis log analysis service here at Wilders. See this announcement regarding this change:

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=42148

    Within that post is an image linking over to a site that lists a number of friendly security sites, some of which still provide that service. You'll need to pick a site and read their HijackThis (spyware cleaning) posting guidelines, following their required steps carefully, and then posting as directed.

    If I run HJT on my machine I get this as part of the report:

    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{9534766F-A43D-4493-AF2A-971E8F4A777F}: NameServer = 213.208.106.213 213.208.106.212

    This only started happening once I got ADSL and think it is just an entry which denotes the ADSL connection to the net.
