  1. Hey guys, I was wondering if you could help. I have tried a lot of things such as running ad aware, disabling 3rd party extensions, running avg and norton virus scan, but none of them seem to work. I hope you can help. Heres the problem:Every time i open up internet explorer, I get the following message:

    Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. It happens every single time, and the only way i can get on the internet is by opening up a folder and typing a website into the address bar. I also ran hijack this... I will reply to this message and give you the log

    Thanks for the help. I really appreciate it.

    Close IE.

    Browse to the following location:

    C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

    Delete: index.dat

    Re-open IE.

    If that doesnt work;

    Download Internet Explorer 6 SP1 to the root of your C drive:

    Once the file (480KB) is download - Close IE

    Go to Start, Run and type;

    c:\ie6setup.exe /c:"ie6wzd.exe /d:1 /s:""#E"

    The IE setup will launch.

    You run it this way - because you dont want to have IE open whilst it's installing...

    Let us know how you get on

    Some obvious

    First, download

    You have several baddies.

    1. Your hosts file (C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts) has been corrupted with broadcasts to many sites. Replace with original or one which will discourage adware etc. A good one is

    2. Run HJT again and select the boxes on:
    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName =
    R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {7E4031F1-4A3A-1109-6513-F7E2BD392C25} - C:\WINDOWS\stxjdnqo.dll (file missing)
    O1 - Hosts: etc. etc.
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {D83DC9EC-78C7-87AB-2038-650193AB148B} - C:\WINDOWS\stxjdnqo.dll (file missing)
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AUNPS2] RUNDLL32 AUNPS2.DLL,_Run@16
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SysTray] c:\Program Files\sbrshx.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [PKL[W]VTIUY_YKXJP]`] C:\WINDOWS\system32\xprpzwxpsej.exe
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [shell] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Folders\ibm00001.exe"
    O4 - Global Startup: hpoddt01.exe.lnk = ?
    O16 - DPF: {30528230-99f7-4bb4-88d8-fa1d4f56a2ab} (YInstStarter Class) - C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Common\yinsthelper.dll
    O16 - DPF: {406B5949-7190-4245-91A9-30A17DE16AD0} (Snapfish Activia) -

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: mmxeroxk - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\mmxeroxk.dll
    O20 - Winlogon Notify: WebCheck - C:\WINDOWS\system32\qvdit.dll (file missing)
    ...then click "Fix Checked"

    Use Killbox.exe to get rid of:

    c:\Program Files\sbrshx.exe
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Folders\ibm00001.exe
    C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Common\yinsthelper.dll

    also search for and destroy:

    Now if you reboot you should have a like-new machine. If not, repost your HJT log and we'll look again.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    HJT logs should be posted as a .txt attachment.

    I have moved this thread to our security and the web forum.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions.

    Post a fresh HJT log as an attachment into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
