    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,SearchAssistant = about:blank

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [WINT] C:\WINNT\system32\wcpsvsu.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"

    Delete these files

    C:\WINNT\system32\wcpsvsu.exe

    and Delete these folders
    C:\PROGRAm files \DEFAUL~1\ <<<<< this folder starts with default and contains data mode.dll
    C:\PROGRAm files\Toolbar
    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 01R291 14.04.2004 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

    looks clear now so
    Read here https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=27971 for info on how to tighten your security settings and how to help prevent future attacks.
    On this page you will find links to Javacool's SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard. Get them both and check for updates frequently.

    The Immunize feature in Spybot used in conjunction with SpywareBlaster , SpywareGuard and weekly scans with Spybot and Adaware will go a long way toward keeping your PC free of these pests.
    It also contains links for IE-SPYAD that puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone, & the IE hosts file so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.

    And has links to a browser & security test site to test for exploits that might let these baddies in to your computer

    Important!: ALWAYS check for updated detections and referencefiles before scanning with Spybot and Adaware. And be sure to check for updates to SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard on a weekly basis.

    all the programs help, but they do need updating regularly to take account of th new baddies

    all his ones were fairly recent ones and I don't think SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard have them in their databases yet, but they should be in the next updates

    The LOP toolbar one is the most difficult to protect from because it uses random names and identity tags so is almost impossible to prevent installing unless you set your security settings as shown and don't allow the downloads,
