    Hi,
    It looks like I got infested with the URLsearchhook bug a couple days ago and I can't get rid of it. I've run SpyBot, Adaware, & Hijack This and while they did halt the Internet Explorer homepage hijack to Searchmeup I keep getting tiny Windial32 windows popping up exclaiming "Program already running!". Weird, huh? Here's my log:

    urlsearchhook, windial32

    Hi Pieter,
    I couldn't access the spyware.com link you sent me but I found the CWshredder elsewhere, downloaded it, and ran it. It seems to have got rid of the coolsearch files but the urlsearchhook still shows up after I ran an updated Hijack This. Here's the log:

    The Windial32 pop-ups have disappeared since I ran the old Hijack This and rebooted about an hour ago. Any ideas?

    Thank You Again,

    Hi chris,

    First things first. I see some more spyware that we need to get rid off.

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

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AutoUpdater] "C:\Program Files\AutoUpdate\AutoUpdate.exe"
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [57nf39h] C:\WINNT\System32\mseas.exe

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Ltho] C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Application Data\ootr.exe
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [WCPS] C:\WINNT\System32\winttr.exe

    Then reboot and delete:
    C:\Program Files\AutoUpdate <= entire folder
    C:\WINNT\System32\mseas.exe
    C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Application Data\ootr.exe
    C:\WINNT\System32\winttr.exe

    Then post a new log.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Hi Pieter and Friends,
    Sorry I was so late getting back but I had to go to work! I fixed the items you suggested and rebooted. I got an access denied pop-up when I tried to delete C:\WINNT\System32\meas.exe and I could not find C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Application Data\ootr.exe at all. Here is my latest log:

    My system is running much quicker, much thanks to you, but I see there's still some spyware junk in there. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank You!

    Hi chris,

    Where do you see spyware junk?
    I found one leftover HijackThis won't be able to get rid off.

    Download Registrar Lite from here:
    http://www.resplendence.com/download/reglite.exe

    Put it in its own folder. You may want to keep this program. It is an excellent free, registry editor.

    Copy and paste the follow text into the address bar, then hit 'Go':
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\URLSearchHooks

    In the pane on the right are the values associated with that key.
    We want to remove this one -> {CFBFAE00-17A6-11D0-99CB-00C04FD64497}_ Notice the underscore at the end, all the others with that need to go as well.

    Right click on it, and select delete.
    If you get a confirmation question, respond OK then close out the program.

    Regards,

    Pieter
