PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: Windows XP
Problem Application Name & Version: Internet Explorer 6 with SP2 updates
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:



Hello there, my Internet Explorer browser has been hijacked to a nasty p*rn webpage and won't budge. I have run spybot and ad-aware several times as well as spyware blaster to no avail. I have a Hijack This log of my system. Can anyone help? It is really quite unpleasant and I would dearly like rid of the thing, never for it to return. Spybot identifies the problem but doesn't seem to fix it, neither does ad-aware. What do I do? I have searched the other problems in the site, but can't seem to find anything that is the same problem. Thanks for any help received guys. Here is my HijackThis log.

Set Windows to Show Hidden Files and Folders

RESTART your Computer in SAFE MODE

Find and delete these files or folders if they exist
C:\spe <--folder

Stay in safe mode
Do another Scan with Hijackthis and put a check next to these entries
and then FIX CHECKED when ALL other windows are closed

This one will be reinstalled if needed

Optionally, fix the next ones too, there not threats, but Not needed on startup, considered resource hogs, programs work fine without them
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime
O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [BJCFD] C:\Program Files\BroadJump\Client Foundation\CFD.exe

Info for CFD.exe You can just disable it with hijackthis

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" -osboot
If you choose to fix this one, stay in safe mode and navigate to
realsched.exe>>>RENAME to realsched.old
May be named just realsched.--Windows XP hides extensions for known file types by default
This will ensure it won't startup and RealPlayer works fine without it

===Do a DiskCleanup>>START----Run---type in cleanmgr
Ensure that Temp and Temporary Internet Files are checked

RESTART back in Normal Mode
Don't open a browser yet, instead access Internet Options via Control
Panel
Under the Programs tab "Reset Web Settings"
Under the General tab---Delete files + offline content---Also Reset home page

Post back with a fresh hijackthis log and let me know if your problems are resolved

Hello there, thanks very much for your advice. My computer isn't currently connected to the web, but it appears to have done the trick about getting rid of the spyware. Here is my HijackThis log.
