    As jehnx asked..
    On your S&D, Norton, and Ad-aware, have you done the updates and gotten the very latest definitions?
    If the Spybot S&d isn't scanning for some 11000+ items then you are not even remotely up2date ..

    Not saying the info comming from groovicus, Wazz and nihil is not good it bloody excellent.. just it seems the valid question from jehnx was ignored..


    cheers

    U R infected with trojan.startpage virus... Ur Norton 2003 and above should be able to detect it easily....

    Now this is a relatively armless trojan the only problem is that it changes the homepage of IE.. and no matter how many times u reset the homepage it keeps on reverting back to the programmed page.....

    Although the trojan uses very good stealth technology to hide itself.... I am atleast still unable to delete the virus.. But try installing the SPYWARE GUARD on ur PC.. that will resolve ur homepage problem instantly.......

    Hi, I cannot see anything obvious in the log, is it still happening?

    Remember you need to run CWshredder and the rest with NO Internet Explorer windows open. Make sure that you have the latest version, it changes weekly, because the spyware changes rapidly and becomes more stealthy.

    Try http://www.winpatrol .com

    Win Patrol ....it shows you startup programs and "IE Helpers" (otherwise known as BHOs) I would be inclined to delete all of them that you are not absolutely certain of. You can always re-install them if something stops working.

    Good luck
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    There's your trojan right there ...close all other browser & explorer windows.....check off:
    R3 - URLSearchHook: ViewSource Class - {6CC1C918-AE8B-4373-A5B4-28BA1851E39A} - C:\Documents and Settings\johnny\Application Data\winshow\winshow.dll

    click 'fix checked'...then reboot

    after restarting...look in C:\Documents and Settings\johnny\Application Data for the winshow folder & delete it.

    Yeah..it's easier to spot stuff if the log is copied & pasted into a reply. that's what you should do.. anjali ......

    ...probably should start your own thread.too., maybe.....
