Operating System Version: WinXP
Problem Application Name & Version: Internet explorer 6
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages: Internet exploer cannot open search page

I got hit by by a spyware and i removed it using aboutblaster.
Don't have the full hijack log of what spyware i removed, cause i didn't save the whole log.. but anyway i hope the line below shows what spyware i removed

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://D:\WINDOWS\system32\ukkwv.dll/sp.html#12802

Ok my system is clean now, but i can only surf the web with opera browser.

I get the error message "Internet exploer cannot open search page" when i try to go to pages in IE.
However, if i type in the web address when i'm in a folder view, eg: C:\, i can surf the site. But opening new pages will cause the error message to appear again.

Any way to fix this? Thanks

Your hijack this is outdated.Please download the newest version
From Here

Make sure you unzip hijack this to its own folder such as C:\Program files as this is where the backups will be created.Run Hijack this but do NOT fix anything.Click save log and a log will open in notepad.Copy and paste your log here.

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

fd.exe
fdgo.exe
unins000.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:


O2 - BHO: (no name) - {206E52E0-D52E-11D4-AD54-0000E86C26F6} - C:\PROGRA~1\FRESHD~1\FRESHD~1\fdcatch.dll
O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {08B0E5C0-4FCB-11CF-AAA5-00401C608501} - (no file)
O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Sun Java Console - {08B0E5C0-4FCB-11CF-AAA5-00401C608501} - (no file)

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


Fresh Devices

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:\PROGRA~1\FRESHD~1\FRESHD~1\fdcatch.dll


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.
