**(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)

hscr.exe
tmgrxiv.exe
atenix.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
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://yoursearcher.com/sp.htm
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = http://yoursearcher.com/index.htm
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [zvjvccvcma] C:\WINDOWS\System32\vmsymty.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [atenix] C:\WINDOWS\atenix.exe

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Hswu] C:\Documents and Settings\Mike\Application Data\hscr.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [uwxgexc] c:\windows\vrqylia.exe


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


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\Mike\Application Data\hscr.exe
C:\windows\tmgrxiv.exe
c:\windows\vrqylia.exe
C:\WINDOWS\atenix.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.

Great B_R_I_C_K_T_O_P ... but in your original Log the top half was not present so I did not see that you used an older version of HJT.

Delete that copy that you have(the .exe file only,keep the backups) and Download this newer version 1.98.2

Run the EXE again and Post that Logfile back here.
Let's make sure we got everything.. Grin
