Three times is a charm? Help!

Unread postby Gregthos » January 23rd, 2007, 9:38 pm

Every time I open my browser (Google is my home) and I type in something to search it takes exactly three times to go to the intended page. The first two times will bring up random search pages or something of that nature. I have run my virus scan, Ad-Aware, Spybot and even did a scan from Housecall and still no results. I have posted my HiJack file below. Happy hunting.

Hi Gregthos,

Welcome to the MalWare Removal forums! I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems.
HijackThis logs can take some time to research, so please be patient with me. I know that you need
your computer working as quickly as possible, and I will work hard to help see that happens.

In order to help me help you, please observe the following while we work:
  1. If you don't know, stop and ask! Don't continue, we don't want to start all over again!
  2. Understand that cleaning your computer can sometimes take multiple passes/posts,
    and it's important to follow the steps as listed including re-running scans as listed
  3. Please reply to this thread, do not start another.


If you can do those three things, everything should go smoothly

Hello Gregthos,

Please this first:
Hijackthis is running from a Temp folder. In order to create and keep backups, Hijackthis needs to run from in side a folder.
If you have created a short cut Icon on desktop delete it now. We will clean out the one in your temp folder later do not worry about it now.

Re-Download HijackThis and save to your Desktop. Click HERE
  • Double click on HJTSetup.exe and by default it should install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This
  • Make sure to read dialogue screen when installing and put a check in the box create a desktop Icon when you get to that prompt screen. This will create a short cut on your desktop.
  • Follow all the prompts, click Finish, and let the installer start HijackThis.
  • Click the Do a System Scan and Save a Log File option.
  • Notepad will open with the Hijackthis log, please post it's content here.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
    Paste the log in your next reply.


This is important to have done first.
