I have the same problem. I have tried everything. Even
removing and reinstalling Internet Explorer. The damn
thing seems to reinstall with some routine to "Set Office
Configuration"..... Diabolical!

A true parasite. Microsoft should the find the programer
who did this and shoot him or hire him.

First eliminate any scumware.
See
Dealing with Unwanted Malware, Parasites, Toolbars and Search Engines
http://mvps.org/winhelp2002/unwanted.htm

Note that AdAware and SpyBot S & D will each catch some things the other
won't. Also, each needs to be updated with the program's update function
before every use, even when just downloaded. There's also a lot more to do
than just those two programs. CWShredder is also available here:

**Post your HijackThis log to
http://forums.spywareinfo.com/ or the Spyware forum at
http://forum.aumha.org/ for expert analysis, not here.**
Alternative download pages for Ad-Aware, Spybot, HijackThis and CWShredder
may be found on this page:

If nothing there helps, please post back to this thread.

You will find the offending dll file in your "windows/temp" files ... delete the "hijack/spyware/" from your system ... by the way it is in 2 hidden files ... I deleted both files and it is now gone ..... I found it on my parents system by using PowerDesk ... this crap is a new low in malware brought to you by the wonderful " CoolWeb " team of " @#! @#$% %$#!%^*&^%&#! ^&*!! !$^*&%!! of virus writers" ... hope you get rid of it ... if you have a problem you can download a free trail of PowerDesk from http://www.v-com.com ... it can find hidden files that windows explorer just can't find.

I have been looking at the problem with this new hijacker you
all have been fighting ... nasty one ... I almost got it
yesterday morning but I am running WinPatrol ... it was able
to ID the changes the "Trojan" was trying to make to the
registry and to IE. I simply cancelled the changes ... you may
want to download WinPatrol ( www.winpatrol.com), remove the
registry changes in "safe mode" .. then restart. Any changes
can be stopped with WinPatrol ... this does not remove the
original "Trojan" from the system but is does allow you to
stop it from taking over your system for a while .... I also
found in the windows/temp ( I run win'98SE ) files 2 file
folders full of "spam to be sent out" ( ads for "junk"), both
had file folders were full of Outlook Express dbx files, all
ready to be e-mailed .. I deleted the file folders .. but they
came back after rebooting .... so far I have not been able to
locate the "Trojan" responsible for generating this problem,
but I have been able to stop the regenerating of the dbx files
by using SystemSuite5's Scheduler to clean the temp files of
any dbx files on startup. So far so good. The dbx files when
read come many different companies who send out "spam" ...
looks like we have a "Trojan" designed to bypass the "Canned
Spam laws" .... the kids who write this stuff for these
"spammers" should get life with out the chance of ever seeing
a computer again .....
I am not one of the MPV's here ... but I know WinPatrol did
help in stopping the problem from getting all the way into my
system ... hope this helps ..... If any of the MPV's have any
other answers ... we will be happy to look at them too ... I
do recommend WinPatrol ... It saved my butt more than once ...
be sure to make sure you have the lastest upgrade .....
