I'm running Windows XP, and I have the hijacker/dialer that I've been unable to shed.  The Trend Micro online scan turned up nothing, nor does Sophos which is running on my computer.  I've run Ad-Aware (which did find RegData and deleted it) and Spybot (which also found and deleted something).  When I reboot after all this the realsearch virus comes right back.  Here is the Ad-Aware log (at the end a possible virus is found) and a Hijack This log (after manually removing 11 entries, although they always return after rebooting).  Thanks for the help.

Hi, I had the same problem a few days ago.
Firts of all it helps to use the latest Hijackthis version (1.99 i think). When you post it a Moderator will look at it.

I cleaned my computer myself with help from Cactus BUT I'M NOT A MODERATOR!!!! so i can give you some advise but i'm not an expert!

First of all it helps to disable any virusscanner ( my scanner deleted the file, but it copied itself under another name) and don't make any adjustments to your system.

A moderator will tell you how to work but you'll have to post a file from v1.99.

I followed Cactus' "manual" and deleted several .exe files from my system32 (the hack is located there)
on top of that i also deleted all sorts of suspicious files that were installed on my PC the day it got hacked.
Most false files are 8,66kb and don't have a MS signature name if you place your cursor on them.

These are just tips, but i advise you to post a Hijackthis v.1.99 file here and wait for a moderator to reply

Good luck!!;D

Your HJT version is outdated chisoxinla..

Download Hijackthis Version 1.99
---Important---Create a permanent folder
EG---- Open MyDocuments----Right click an empty spot and select NEW---Folder----Name the new folder HJT ---this is where you will want to save Hijackthis too, also, backups will be stored there.
Download from here

Do a SCAN----Scan will change to SAVE LOG----copy and paste the WHOLE contents of the log
here... Don't try and fix anything yet----most entries are harmless and needed.


**PLEASE** not post your hijack log in someone else's thread. Start a separate thread HERE! Thank you.
