**(Always create a Folder for HiJackThis anywhere but your Temp/Temporary Internet Folders. This is where it will save the backup files needed if there's a problem.)**

Press Ctrl/Alt/Del and "End Task" or "End Process" on each of the following: (They may or may not be there)

l?gonui.exe
458109.exe
msrd2x35.exe
fnptyvc.exe
uhes.exe


Turn off System Restore. (Turn it back on after this is repaired and you've rebooted.) Close all other open Windows and have HiJackThis Fix:


R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://yoursearcher.com/sp.htm
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://yoursearcher.com/index.htm
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://yoursearcher.com/index.htm

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = http://yoursearcher.com/index.htm
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\blank.htm
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = localhost
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O1 - Hosts file is located at: C:\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [msrd2x35] C:\WINDOWS\System32\msrd2x35.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Ddsn] C:\Documents and Settings\LIPSMACK\Application Data\uhes.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Jnrzx] C:\WINDOWS\System32\l?gonui.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [xmxybmp] c:\windows\fnptyvc.exe
O4 - Global Startup: 458109.exe


The next are optional, but recommended for removal,Resource hogs and not needed on startup, but does not disable the program:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" -osboot
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [UpdReg] C:\WINDOWS\UpdReg.EXE
O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = F:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OSA.EXE



Go to Control Panel / Add/Remove Programs and remove the
 following if they are there:


msrd2x35
Ddsn
LIPSMACK
Jnrzx
xmxybmp
YourSearcher

Now delete these Folders or Files that are Highlighted: (You may need enable "Show all Files" and disable "Hide System Files" in Windows Explorer / Tools / Folder Options / View Tab) (You may have to boot to "Safe Mode" in order to delete some Files/Folders)

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\458109.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\l?gonui.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\msrd2x35.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\LIPSMACK\Application Data\uhes.exe
c:\windows\fnptyvc.exe


Now, empty all your TEMP Folders (WinXp has up to 4 of them) / Temporary Internet Files Folder and then empty your "Recycle Bin" and Reboot.

Turn on System restore,before opening your browser goto TOOLS>INTERNET OPTIONS and make sure your Homepage is correct,if not ,type the URL you would like in the HomePage box.

Now re-run HJT and post a new logfile back here.

Thanks!!!

That seemed to do the trick.   I did notice that the 'HKCU ProxyOverride came back after removing it.  I don't know why.   Also, for some reason, there are no entries past 012.

With the hijacker gone, perhaps I could try to reduce some of the other clutter I have going on out there, hopefully without damaging anything.. lol

Thanks again Cactus!

Logfile looks good!!!

Turn off System Restore. (Turn it back on after this is repaired and you've rebooted.) Close all other open Windows and have HiJackThis Fix:


O4 - Global Startup: Kodak EasyShare software.lnk = C:\Program Files\KODAK\Kodak EasyShare software\bin\EasyShare.exe
