    Please turn on your antivirus software if you had it turned off, if you have none then get some immediately

    Please download ONE of the following antivirus programs and install it.
    Once installed, Update it, run full system scan with it and allow it to fix up what it wants.
    Reboot if it fixed anything.


    Download Deldomains.
    • Save it to your desktop.
    • Right-click DelDomains.inf and select: Install (no need to restart)
    • You may not see any noticeable changes or prompts; this is normal.
    Note: The DelDomains.inf file will remove ALL entries in the Trusted, Restricted, and Enhanced Security Configuration Zones. Any entries that you had will need to be entered again. You will have to reimmunize with SpywareBlaster, and/or Spybot after doing this, and reinstall IESpyads if you use any of these programs.

    Fix entries with HijackThis
    • open hijackThis and select do a system scan only
    • Put a check next to the following items (if still there)
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar =
    R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {38E77F06-89FC-44f5-B3AB-11DDEB791947} - C:\Program Files\FrontierSH\SrchHelp\frSrcAs.dll

    • Close all browser windows including this one
    • Select fix checked

    I would like you to do an online scan so that we can what else may be in your system,
    Run Kaspersky online scanner
    With the exception of Internet Explorer, which must be used for this scan, keep ALL programs closed
    Note: It is recommended to disable onboard antivirus program and antispyware programs while performing scans to speed up scan time and to make sure there are no conflicts.
    Do not go surfing while your resident protection is disabled!
    Once the scan is finished remember to re-enable resident antivirus protection along with whatever antispyware application you use.

    Do an online scan with Kaspersky Online Scanner in Internet Explorer. You will be prompted to install and run an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes.
    Note for Internet Explorer 7 users: If at any time you have trouble with the accept button of the licence, click on the Zoom tool located at the right bottom of the IE window and set the zoom to 75%. Once the licence accepted, reset to 100%.
    • The program will launch and then start to download the latest definition files.
    • Once the scanner is installed and the definitions downloaded, click Next.
    • Now click on Scan Settings
    • In the scan settings make sure that the following are selected:
      o Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
      o Extended (If available, otherwise use standard)
      o Scan Options:
      o Scan Archives
      o Scan Mail Bases
    • Click OK
    • Under select a target to scan, select My Computer
    • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
    • Please do not use your computer while the scan is running. Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
    • Click the Save Report As... button (see red arrow below)

    • In the Save as... prompt, select Desktop
    • In the File name box, name the file
    • In the Save as type prompt, select Text file (see below)

    • Include the report in your next post.

    Run HijackThis again an post a fresh log.

    In your next post you should have,
    1)Kaspersky scan
    2)Fresh HJT scan

    Go to add/remove programs and remove the following,

    HijackThis 2.0.0
    LiveReg (Symantec Corporation)
    LiveUpdate 2.0 (Symantec Corporation)
    Viewpoint Media Player

    Reboot if required,

    The next thing that I need you to do for me is to download and install the correct version of HijackThis for me,

    Highjackthis Instructions
    • Make sure you have the LATEST version of HJT (currently v2.0.2) it can be downloaded from HERE
    • Run the HijackThis Installer and it will automatically place HJT in its own folder, usually C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis. Please don't change the directory as it is necessary to create backups.
    • After installing, the program launches automatically, select Scan now and save a log
    • After the scan is complete post the log in your reply.
    Do not attempt to fix any item yet.
    Do not add anything to the ignore list.
    Don't use the AnalyseThis button, its findings are dangerous if misinterpreted.

    AFter getting HJT 2.02

    I could be really wrong... but the myway bar thing... it's on my IP's website as an option to get mail, have a personal page... etc... and I noticed in my installed programs list (via add/remove programs) there is listed as "Frontier Browser Assistant" and below that as "Frontier Search Helper"... I don't recall ever putting them on there, but I'm guessing they came with the software when we installed the High speed?

    The Frontier bar doesn't show up on firefox but does come up on IE... and the yahoo bar, I've removed it via the add/remove option, removed it via IE, and it's still showing up on the HJT report.

    I don't know if that was something you wanted gone also or not, but I am thinking the Frontier has to do with the Myway...

    Thank you!

    I'm not sure... maybe we're getting somewhere?

    I uninstalled the Frontier web/tool bar. I don't see the Yahoo tool bar coming up anymore. I rebooted after that.

    I ran AVG antivirus, it only found one thing, Trojan.small (shows cleaned)
    I ran Trend Micro Internet Security, and it found 5 Troj_generic.adv, 4 Cryp_tap2. I asked it to delete all of them.

    I re-booted and am re-running both programs, see if anything else comes up. I am also going to rerun the online scan too... do you want any more logs at this point?

    Thank you for your help!
