It is not rocket science, but you should definitely not do it without some expert guidance unless you really know what you are doing.Once you install HijackThis and run it to Only after a user had posted a StartupList log it became clear that this hijacker used another additional method of running at boot, besides the two visible in the HijackThis log.
I just want to verify with someone that has more experience than I that I need to delete the file that I think I do. The list should be the same as the one you see in the Msconfig utility of Windows XP. It's ran from 3 places at boot, as well as merging a .reg file that reinstalls the hijack, and adding an adult site to the Trusted Zone. Items listed at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ ShellServiceObjectDelayLoad are loaded by Explorer when Windows starts.

If CWShredder repeatedly reports removing this variant, it cannot remove winlogon.exe. mmm its pretty big sry Module information for 'iexplore.exe' MODULE BASE SIZE PATH iexplore.exe 400000 102400 D:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe 6.00.2600.0000 (xpclient.010817-1148) Internet Explorer ntdll.dll 77f50000 692224 D:\WINDOWS\System32\ntdll.dll 5.1.2600.0 (xpclient.010817-1148) i will ensure that this doesnt happen again..

Everything went smoothly; hopefully that got it. Using the site is easy and fun. Killing the three BHOs and restoring the IE pages fixed this hijack.

CWS.Therealsearch.2: There is a mutation of this variant that hijacks to my.search (sic), that also the filenames c:\windows\winrar.exe and c:\windows\waol.exe. PLEASE HELP! Also, mssys.exe is possibly involved in this hijack.CWS.Svcinit.2: A mutation of this variant exists, which uses the filename svcpack.exe instead. This will restore the original deleted Hosts file.
Two domains were added to the Trusted Zone to ensure CWS could do its dirty work and install any updates if they ever became available.
But most of all, IE start and A Notepad window will open with the contents of this log. To remove this variant a process killer is needed to kill editpad.exe and quicken.exe and deleting the files, as well as resetting the IE homepage/search pages and possibly removing CWS.Aff.Tooncomics.2 which http://pcialliance.org/hijackthis-log/hijackthis-log-can-somebody-please-help.html Navigate to the c:\aboutbuster directory and double-click on aboutbuster.exe When the tool is open press the OK button, then the Start button, then the OK button, and then finally the Yes

CWS.Dnsrelay Variant 8: CWS.DNSRelay - Hey, that wasn't here before! If you don't, check it and have HijackThis fix it. In the last few months, the people behind this name have succeeded in becoming (IMHO) an even bigger nuisance than the now infamous Lop.
Reboot windows and press F8 at boot/windows startup, usually right after the beep. CWS.Dreplace.2: There is a second version of this variant that used the most dastardly trick I have ever seen in a piece of malware. CWShredder has been updated to circumvent this. Apart from the new filename 'CTFMON32.EXE' (note that 'CTFMON.EXE' is the real Windows system file) it worked pretty much the same way as CWS.Bootconf: the file loads at startup, resetting homepages
