I've tried to delete the damn thing manually---over and over again---cleaned the registry but it still keeps coming back. Everytime I click the 'home' button' on my IE browser---I even tried to put on a new home add. over again---and again -----it just keeps on appearing! aaaah!


What the hell is this damn file? Need your expertise ppl.

Thnx.


Sincerely,


Kirsten

Either it is:

a) a system file protected by the OS, or
b) malware, in which case you should try typing that same to Google and/or trying AVS/Malware remove-tool.

Hopefully you have your "internet condom" on -firewall?

I already did a google search - with no success _

LIQUIDCELL, since you did not provide that much info, I'll give you some general advice:

Download Spybot, update it via the - duh - update function, do a scan and remove possible Spyware. Restart and see if the problem remains. If it does, download HijackThis! and post the report in spoiler tags in this thread.

I did! I exited that prog and opened it-- then run scan--- that damn freaking file appears again!

I give up..... for the meantime. Going out & drink some tequila.

You already removed these entries? Hmm, then you should disable System Restore, remove the entries again, reboot and activate System Restore. Note that all System Restore points will be deleted at that moment and you should set a System Restore point manually later on, so do this only if you know what you are doing.

No problem if you got a decent and uptodate (!) Antivirus program + Firewall.

Too much hassle; just format and see if it is still there. If so, obviously it must be a protected OS file.

There are some more items in your HijackThis log that should be fixed. Besides that, it's not your full log, make a new log and paste here all of it.

By the way, you should also check out SpySweeper.

disable system restore, reboot into safe mode under administrative privalleges, and then try to manually delete it. If it works, remember to re-enable system restore. If it doesn't, i'm out of ideas.

I did disable sysre and rebooted---it worked. But then another error came up.

Diagnosis: IE is infected.

Cannot believe my poor baby was suffering from eTD (electronic trasmitted disease)


Thank you all for your help. Greatly appreaciated it.

Then why wouldn't you post a new HijackThis log? Also, did you check out SpySweeper? Don't get confused by the name, it is even better than Ad-aware & Spybot.

I'm still using Internet Explorer because I'm too lazy to change ^_^''. Keeping IE is no problem if you know what you are doing but I consider changing to Firefox if the compatabilities are good. So, are they?

Although in theory the thought of a better browser is nice, but the sad reality is that in practice it takes too long to load to be worth the trouble. Just get Service Pack 2 for XP and go on with life.

Anyway, the easy way to fix the problem is Start Windows in Safe Mode (by mashing the F8 key at start up). At the dialog box click OK to continue start up and skip the Recovery Console.

From the desktop run HijackThis! While the program is running, open the task manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc) and end prossess on explorer.exe and iexplore.exe.

Now click the scan button and put a check mark next to the afformentioned items. Make absolutly sure, nothing else is running, ESPECIALLY INTERNET EXPLORER!

Click Fix Checked, and restart normally.

Too long to load? Do you mean the application itself or Web pages? Anyhow, Mozilla Firefox is still better, it may be only an opinion and not a fact, but it's not only me sticking to that opinion, which should mean something .

P.S
Pardon my rudeness, but it should be 'aforementioned', isn't it?

Too long to load as in when the program isnt loaded and you want to open a web browser. You have to sit there and wait for 30 minutes for it to go through all those initialization steps. I know there is a program that stays open, but it seems unsettling that you have you have a 6,000 kb prossess going all the time just so you can have a web browser open in a reasonable amount of time.

PS:
Pardon my rudeness, but I think there may be something wrong with you if you feel you need to correct my spelling mistakes.

I don't know, it works fine for me though...

P.S
It's not that there is really something wrong with me, I just have this obsession to correct other people's spelling mistakes, that's why I first started with 'pardon', so I will not be extremly rude. Forgive me if I was.

Any ideas where exatcly the dll came from?

KeinikuSuki: Mozilla loads slow, but Firefox loads about as fast as IE.
