I have a browser hi jacker

Post by anthonyj on Tue 06 Jul 2010, 11:53 am

First topic message reminder :

I have a browser hijacker that won't allow me to reach antivirus websites. I have downloaded Malware-Antibytes on a clean computer and attempted to run it on my infected computer. I kept getting run time errors 0 and 440. I would greatly appreciate any help. BTW I'm not very PC savvy. Thanks again guys!!

I suppose that it's worth mentioning that occasionally the word 'JUMP' replaces the title of the page in the tab.

So say that I were redirected away from this page, the word 'JUMP' would replace 'I have a browser hijacker'. This is only occasionally and I have not yet been redirected away from this page so this is only an example.

On top of that random windows will pop-up while I am browsing. So instead of being redirected, I have one too many windows open.

This God dern hijacker is still active. I'm PO'ed.

Of course I'm not mad at you guys, but I'd like to get physical (probably get my lil ass whooped, lol) with whomever is responsible for this crap.

I prefer the Firefox interface. Not a fan of IE.

Tried to do some casual browsing just now. But no, I'm getting owned by some mysterious hijacker.

Thanks for teaming up with me.

WE SHALL PREVAIL!!

Please download ComboFix from BleepingComputer.com

Alternate link: GeeksToGo.com

Alternate link: Forospyware.com (Click the green button on the page to download it).

Rename ComboFix.exe to combo-fix.exe before you save it to your Desktop
  • Close any open browsers.
  • Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
  • Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the quotebox below into it:
    Folder::
    C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\extensions\{972ce4c6-7e08-4474-a285-3208198ce6fd}
  • Save this as CFScript.txt, in the same location as ComboFix.exe



  • Referring to the picture above, drag CFScript into ComboFix.exe
  • When finished, it shall produce a log for you at C:\ComboFix.txt
  • Please post the contents of the log in your next reply.
