Hey,

Recently I was browsing the web when I got linked to a site infected with viruses. Everytime I reboot my computer I get this M-soft Office.hta file open up, and my browser homepage is continually changed to www.mssearch4u.com.

Here is my HijackThis log, if anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it!

Set Windows to show Hidden files and folders
* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View Tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.



**(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)

gkxmruf.exe
mshta.exe
wuauclt.exe


Turn off System Restore WinXP WinME. (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://mssearch4u.com/sp.htm
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://mssearch4u.com/index.htm
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://mssearch4u.com/index.htm
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://mssearch4u.com/sp.htm
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = http://mssearch4u.com/index.htm

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [qavclaa] c:\windows\vsxydxr.exe
O4 - Global Startup: M-soft Office .hta

O16 - DPF: {74D05D43-3236-11D4-BDCD-00C04F9A3B61} (HouseCall Control) - http://a840.g.akamai.net/7/840/537/2004061001/housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/xscan53.cab



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


mssearch4u
M-soft Office

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:\windows\gkxmruf.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\mshta.exe
c:\windows\vsxydxr.exe
C:\M-soft Office .hta
C:\WINDOWS\M-soft Office .hta
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\M-soft Office .hta


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.

In Xp, here are some locations of Temp files

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
C:\Documents and Settings\LocalService\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
C:\Documents and Settings\NetworkService\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files


Turn on System Restore

Before opening your browser goto START>CONTROL PANEL>INTERNET OPTIONSand 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.

Hey shabubu...that's great to hear.. Grin

Might be a good idea to post back with a fresh logfile so we can make sure it's gone.. Wink
