Hi -

Should have taken note of what/where/subject you are posting to at least try
to return to the site/thread. ;-) Remember, like a using a compass and
taking back-bearings, the back-button usually will get you to where you
started, with even less work.

Have a look at this site:
http://www.pchell.com/support/onlythebest.shtml

Ad-Aware by Lavasoft is purported to fix this type of Hijacking problem.

Thank you for answering. I have adware and I also bought
spyblocker, still no luck, but I did get back here!!
Anyway I am now wondering it if is part of the serch
directory as it is not a http address. I wonder if
there is omething in the defaults that overides "Internet
options". Still frustrated with it.

YW, and congratio on your return. :) I presume you mean you have Ad-Aware.
Just for future reference try to be exact and specific. Also, for future
reference you should keep this URL below handy just so you will know what
are invalid programs and which are respected ones. You can see many
similarity in the names, and anyone who helps you will need to know if you
have the "real deal" and not some bogus "sounds-alike" product, which can
cause lots of problems all by themselves. :)

First of all, if you are getting a search page such as what is the Subject
Title, there's no mistake; it is a Hijacking. Yeah, there is something
over-riding it, and it is some malware. This has been a tough one to defeat.

Have you followed the instructions which were offered on that link I
provided? I believe that is the most recently developed fix for this
problem.

Then there is this from Jim Byrd MS-MVP. (Copied and pasted below. Thanks

Hi - I'm informed that the 01R325 AdAware update of 6/28 or later supposedly
completely removes this for some variants/malware implementations; however,
I haven't been able to independently verify this and have also heard
contrary info. Try it first (UPDATED and then from Safe mode), and if it
doesn't work then:

Then from merijn, here: http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/index.html

June 18, 2004:
Please stop emailing me about the new CWS variant that hijacks you to
res://<random>.dll/sp.html#96676. I am aware of this new thing, but it's a
beast to remove.
A solution is being worked on, see this thread on the SWI forums
http://forums.spywareinfo.com/index.php?showtopic=7447.

If it's not working for you, or it's too complicated, I heard from several
people that this workaround works as well:
Open the DLL you get hijacked to in Notepad
Select all content (Ctrl-A) and delete it
Save the file and exit Notepad
Find the file in Explorer, right-click it, select Properties, put a
checkmark in 'Read-Only' and click OK.
If you can't find the DLL file, make sure your settings allow you to view
"Hidden files". Open up any explorer windows and click on "Tools", "Folder
Options", "View" and be sure to check off "Show Hidden Files and Folders".

Check for Spyware - How - to's
First, install the respective programs and then update them immediately,
so that they have the current versions, and definitions. Read the Help
Files and Tutorials.

After you've Updated Spybot S & D, and SpywareBlaster, you *must*
ENABLE the protections as well. These two programs do not automatically
enable the newest definitions and updates, so this process but must be
done by you manually.

Run them one at a time. With Ad-Aware you may have it
generally clean whatever it finds. The same applies for CWShredder.
Spybot S&D requires special attention (listed below), as does HijackThis
(Only more so. Details listed below) The programs are listed in order of
their general strength, safety, and purpose. It is perhaps best to install
and run these in this order of appearance. All are freeware programs,
but if you are pleased with the results and quality of the utilities,
donations to the respective Authors are cheerfully accepted.

*Most important* - Before you try to remove spyware using any of the
following programs, realize that the process of cleaning and removing
certain spyware and malware may possibly interrupt and kill your internet
connection. Therefore, you should obtain a copy of LSPFIX, and Winsockfix
which will then make it possible for you to re-establish your internet
connection if it gets terminated.

Download LSPFIX from either of the following sites:

http://www.cexx.org/lspfix.htm
http://www.spychecker.com/program/winsockxpfix.html (For Win2k or XP)

Download Winsockfix here
http://members.shaw.ca/installations/WinsockFix.zip


Another thing to consider doing is to run a program (only run one program
at a time) a few times consecutively. The reason for this is that the first
pass may kill certain Spyware programs, but may not be able to terminate
and kill all files and programs which may be running at the time.
That is why a second pass may be necessary to be thoroughly effective.

Also, under the most stubborn cases, running the programs in Safe-Mode
will allow for the best cleaning conditions, as there will be a minimum of
interference from processes running in the background.

This item below is designed to *prevent* installation of malware and the

definitions. By enabling a *Kill Bit* it prevents known malignant ActiveX
from being installed or run on your machine. It doesn't remove anything,
nor will it fix anything that is already in your PC. Rather, it will
prevent
installation or re-installation of the item once it has been removed
either manually, or by the use of another program which will perform
the duty of removing the spyware.

If you use Spybot S & D, be sure to clean *ONLY* the items displayed in
*RED*. DO NOT clean any items displayed in Black or Green at this time.

Lastly there is HijackThis. Hijack this is a very powerful, last resort
type of program which is generally best used in conjunction with help from
those who deal with the findings of the log created by the HijackThis
scan.
It does nothing in the scan itself; it merely says what is in and running
on your PC. The items must be checked-marked to be "cleaned". You
must know *exactly* what you are checking-off before you proceed.
If you don't, you can quite possibly disable many useful and vital
functions of your PC. Remember; read the Tutorials, and seek help at
SpywareInfo Forums, Net-Integration, or TomCoyote forums for safety's
sake.
