I cant get rid of Ad-ware and spyware

  Andy 999 21:16 09 Jun 04

Hi, new setup now....

The thing is whenever i launch IE, the home page changes from google.co.uk to some adware page downloaded onto my pc. I keep running adaware and S&D along with zone alarm pro, and i jsut cant get rid of it...I run adaware, it cleans about 10 objects, then i run it straight after its finished and it find more and more and more....I get to the point where it doesnt pick any up, and within 10minutes ive got more... I really need a solution as my homepage keeps changing...

What does your homepage change to?

Try running CWShredder click here

If that doesn't work post a Hijackthis log, following the instructions to the letter click here

Try turning off system restore, booting in safe mode and running virus killers from there

  Andy 999 21:36 09 Jun 04

the home page tries to change to 'about:blank' so i take it its an inside job. Ive run hijack blaster and bazooka at the mo but im still getting adware..

You have got just about the nastiest piece of work that it is possible to get.

Here is some information but you really have to know what you are doing (I assume you have XP) click here

I suggest that you run Hijackthis (as above) then post your log on one of the specialist hijacking forums click here

I'll ask a specialist to look at this but as I said above you should have posted it on a spyware site.

  Nellie2 22:13 09 Jun 04

Andy 999 I'm just having a quick look at this, why are all your program and system files on your D drive rather than your C drive?

  Nellie2 22:20 09 Jun 04

ok... go to windows updates and download any critical updates you are missing, without them you will just get re-infected!!

Download: dllfix.exe from click here

Save it preferably to your Desktop.
Double-click dllfix.exe it will create its own folder.
From the "dllfix" folder, double-click start.bat
Run Option 1. which is "Run Find-All... ". (type) 1 (press Enter)
Let it complete and there will be a pop-up window with a log.
Generates: output.txt Paste the contents of "output.txt" in your next post.
