Hijack

Recommended Posts

We have thrown multiple AV solutions at this PC but cannot remove Hijack.controlpanelstyle and Hijack.shell32. We took it off the network. Curiously, MBAM only detects it when signed on as a domain user. When signed on as the local administrator it finds nothing. I can attach Attach and DDS if needed.

Hi and Welcome!!   

 

My name is Jeff. I would be more than happy to take a look at your malware results logs and help you with solving any malware problems you might have. Logs can take a while to research, so please be patient and know that I am working hard to get you a clean and functional system back in your hands. I'd be grateful if you would note the following:

 

  • The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for the issues on this machine.

It's often worth reading through these instructions and printing them for ease of reference.

If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to say or ask!! It's better to be sure and safe than sorry.

Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.

If you happen to have a flash drive/thumb drive please have that ready in the event that we need to use it.

Please be sure to subscribe to the topic if you have not already done so.


IMPORTANT NOTE : Please do not delete, download or install anything unless instructed to do so.

DO NOT use any TOOLS such as Combofix or HijackThis fixes without supervision. Doing so could make your system inoperable and could require a full reinstall of your operating system and losing all your programs and data.

 

Having said that....   YBCQLm4.gif   Let's get going!!

  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal.  It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you.  Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.
 
Notes:
 
1.Do not mouse-click Combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.
2. ComboFix may reset a number of Internet Explorer's settings, including making I-E the default browser.
3. CF disconnects your machine from the internet.  The connection is automatically restored before CF completes its run.  If CF runs into difficulty and terminates prematurely, the connection can be manually restored by restarting your machine.
4. If you get a message saying "Illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion", please restart your computer.
