  1. Hi:

    My name is Sam and I'm a newbee. I accidentally downloaded an adware.trustinbar virus. Norton antivirus didn't give me helpful instructions
    to remove. Can this be deleted by Hijackthis? Any help would be greatly appreciated. :wave: I've attached my logfile.

    Ok, thanks for the advice. I believe I've followed the instructions pretty
    closely and it may have deleted some of my cookies and some odd spyware, I think the adware.trustinbar is still on there.

    Here is my Hijack txt logfile. If you can suggest which items to "fix" I would
    greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks again,
    Sam

    Boot into safe mode. See how HERE. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial61.html

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial56.html

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial62.html

    Run HJT with no other programmes open. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =
    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName =
    R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
    O9 - Extra button: Messenger - {FB5F1910-F110-11d2-BB9E-00C04F795683} - D:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe (file missing)
    O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Windows Messenger - {FB5F1910-F110-11d2-BB9E-00C04F795683} - D:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe (file missing)

    Fix all 016-DPF entries no matter what they are.

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Reboot into normal mode and turn system restore back on.

    Regards Howard :)
