Hi

I am running IE6 and everytime I go into it, it always comes up with
about:blank and www.startsearches.net as the default home page. I am unable
to change this.

I have looked at various things and dont seem to be getting anywhere fast -
here is the HijackThis log:

Any suggestions as to what else I should do? I have run AdAware and it
cannot seem to shift it and I have tried removing the Registry entries
directly without success.

Please help!!!

Thanks

You should have not included the, "start searhes link", because many
unknowledgeable people may click on it for curiosity, and then also
have the problem!

Also, there are forums, and news groups that specialize in this type of
thing.

I have managed to get rid of hijacks with CWshredder, Spybot, and
AdawareSE.

If you can spend the time on it, and have a discent in depth knowledge
of what is going on in your operating system, you should be able to get
rid of it manualy. This can turn out to be many hours of work.

If you cannot get rid of it within a reasonable period of time, you may
be best off to reformat the drive. This is why I like to keep an up to
date backup image of my systems.

Ben:

Neither alt.comp.virus and microsoft.public.security.virus are the best place to post HJT
Logs.

However, a quick look revealed two items of interest...


O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoft System Checkup] wnetmgr.exe
Possible SDbot worm

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NT Logging Service] syslog32.exe

-------

Dump the contents of the IE Temporary Internet Folder cache (TIF)
Start --> Settings --> Control Panel --> Internet Options --> Delete Files

Dump the contents of the Mozilla FireFox Cache { if you use FireFox }
Tools --> Options --> Privacy --> Cache --> Clear


Download CLEAN.EXE from the URL --
http://www.ik-cs.com/programs/virtools/clean.exe

It is a self-extracting ZIP file that contains the Kixtart Script Interpreter
{ http://kixtart.org Kixtart is CareWare } three batch files, two Kixtart scripts, two Link
(.lnk) files and a PDF instruction file.

GETFILES.BAT -- For downloading (FTP) the files needed to run the McAfee Command Line
Scanner. You may have to disable your FireWall or allow FTP.EXE to go through your FireWall
to allow the FTP utility to download the needed files

CLEAN.BAT -- For running within Windows after running c:\mcafee\GetFiles.BAT. If you choose
to scan again at a future date, run this batch file. It will automatically check the date
of the McAfee DAT files and if it is a couple of days old, it will download (FTP) the latest
signature files and install them before performing the scan.

DOSCLEAN.BAT -- For use on a Win9x/ME PC or on a Win2K/WinXP PC that is using FAT32 after
you have booted from an Emergency Boot Disk or DOS disk and have already executed;
c:\mcafee\GetFiles.BAT from within Windows. DOS disk boot images can be obtained from;
http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm

I need you to perform the following...

Execute; CLEAN.EXE
Choose; Unzip
Choose; Close

Execute; c:\mcafee\GetFiles.BAT
{ or Double-click on 'GetFiles Link' in c:\mcafee }

Reboot the PC into Safe Mode [F8 key during boot]

Shutdown as many applications as possible !
It would also help for you to read - "How to perform a clean boot in Windows XP"
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310353

Execute; c:\mcafee\CLEAN.BAT
{ or Double-click on 'Clean Link' in c:\mcafee }

A final report in HTML format called C:\mcafee\ScanReport.HTML will be generated. At the
end of the scan, it will be displayed in your browser (Opera, FireFox or Internet Explorer).
It is suggested that you move the report out of c:\mcafee before performing another scan.
It would be a good idea to scan in Safe Mode and in Normal Mode and save a copy of the HTML
report for each session.

Blimey! You do have a lot of crap on your computer

The StartSeaches has hooked its way into your default search

Forget about AdAway that produces false negatives with spyware. Download &
install SpyBot S & D from here:

http://users.belgacom.net/bn657515/spybotsd13.exe

Install it, update it, backup your registry & run it. You will be shocked at
what it will find. Even I can see there are many problems from that log.

You also have things link MSN Messenger, Quicktime, Nero, RealPlayer, Skype
& a few other programs running on startup that don't need to be. They are
just wasting memory & making your computer slower to start.

Windows XP has a utility called 'MSCONFIG.exe'

Click START & then click RUN. Type in 'msconfig' (without quotes) & press
ENTER

On the STARTUP tab remove the check marks (ticks) from Quicktime, Nero...
listed above & especially from 'nse' (listed below). To stop MSN starting on
Windows startup will need you to open MSN Messenger, click the TOOLS menu
then click OPTIONS. On the GENERAL tab remove the check (tick) from
'Automatically Run Messenger When Windows Starts', click APPLY & then OK.
There is a new version of MSN Messenger for the UK out today.

The file 'nse.exe' is a worm & are starting when your computer starts. This
should be deleted IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!

Here's information on the above worm:

http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.gaobot.sa.html

You can download a virus removal too from here:

Page:

http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.gaobot.removal.tool.html

Direct Link To Removal Tool:
------------------------------

http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/FxGaobot.exe

Post back after you have run the tool & removed the above worm then I will
help you further
