  1. I have tried everything on this thing for 24 hrs. AVG,ADAWARE,CWSHREDDER,
    SPYBOT, and others.

    This darned thing just hangs on!!

    It has inserted itself into IE trusted sites, and everytime I reboot,
    it pops up a little window asking if I have spyware infection.

    Along with IE open on a search page.

    Any tips on digging the thing out.



    Cheers.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    You should never trust anyone that`s what RBS would tell you and I tend to agree with him.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions carefully.

    Print them out if you can.

    Then go HERE and follow the instructions on how to post your Hijackthis log.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Thanks for the help, I still have "aboutblank" leading to " Search engine- Just find it!" and have in add/remove programs "Best Search Engine!" and Cool
    Search Home.

    I can remove Best Search,but it's back on reboot. Cool Search I cannot
    do anything with.

    Hopefully the txt file reveals something.

    Again, thanks in advance for any help.

    Small file, BIG problems.
    Boot in Safe Mode
    Switch System Restore off.
    Run HJT on its own and let it 'fix':
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = C:\WINDOWS\blank.htm
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {B75F75B8-93F3-429D-FF34-660B206D897A} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\boln.dll
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Systems Restart] Rundll32.exe boln.dll, DllRegisterServer

    When done, delete C:\WINDOWS\system32\boln.dll

    Reboot normal. If all OK, put System Restore back on.

    Hi and again many thanks for helping.

    This machine belongs to a friend and it's the usual.
    Iexplorer , no firewall, poor antivirus practices etc.

    I run Firefox, AVG pro,Adaware, Zone alarm etc and have
    few problems, but I have been trying every piece of
    software to remove/protect against this stuff on this
    machine.

    At the moment I am looking at TDS-3 Pro . Any
    opinions on it.

    Cheers.

    rbs,
    Thanks alot for all your help,with your advice I was able to
    finally nail the spyware.

    Also, could you tell me, how do folks like you learn to "read" the
    results of Hijack this log files.

    Again, many thanks and regards,
    davrip

    Lots of hard graft, washed down by copious amounts of Guinness.
    And the proverbial 'luck of the Irish'....
