    Hi there. I'm new to this. My AVG will occassionally come up with a warning that the computer has been infected with Trojan Horse SecThought.E . I'll run a virus scan and it can't be put in the vault. Deleting temporary internet files and then it won't come up on the scan again until another message comes up. I restarted in Safe Mode and deleted the folder that it was listed under because trying to look up the virus that was a suggestion. (C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\OTG1YN8D\install026[1].exe) There hasn't been any actual symptoms other than the AVG messages. I now came across this webpage. I run both Ad-Aware and Spybot on the computer but before the HijackThis scan I only ran Spybot. I hope this is what is needed. Thanks so much!

    I ran HijackThis while still in safe mode. Should I restart in normal mode and run it again? Thanks again.

    Hi liz149,

    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.

    Check the items listed below in HijackThis, close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = http://us6.hpwis.com/
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = http://srch-us6.hpwis.com/
    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://us6.hpwis.com/
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://srch-us6.hpwis.com/

    Then reboot and in IE click Tools > Internet-options > general Tab > Delete files > put a checkmark in the confirmation box to remove offline content as well.

    Regards,

    Pieter
