searchclickads.net adware
« on: November 23, 2005, 12:33:14 PM »
HELP!    :sos:

my homepage in i explorer is google.

BUT, what i get INSTEAD is this:
http://www.searchclickads.net/adware/php-bin/redirect/redirect.php?q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Egoogle%2Ecom%2F&u=36E4FF8B47C5
4FE8BAA7BD89E7572D6F&r=ventaa&c=us&t=20051123142440

***
NOTHING i've tried can get this searchads thing out; if i disable my firewall, google shows as my homepage -- but the firewall is obviously
 protecting me against searchads!

Have you already utilized programs like SpyBot, Ad-Aware, etc?  If so, we'll proceed directly to HijackThis ... please tell us exactly what you have done so far.

FYI -
i removed a TON of bad stuff in Safe Mode, from the registry.
Each one seemed to solve SOMETHING -- but internet explorer is DEAD completely now.

no matter what URL i put in the tool bar, i get a PAGE NOT FOUND, and some funky searchclickads.net prepend in the url.
for ex. google shows up as:
http://www.searchclickads.net/adware/php-bin/redirect/redirect.php?q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Egoogle%2Ecom%2F&u=36E4FF8B47C54FE8BAA7BD89E7572D6F&r=ventaa&c=us&t=20051123123045

THANKS FOR THE HELP!

SORRY - i discovered the POST LOGS HERE area, and posted a more up-to-date log over there.

(I re-ran spybot & adaware se with the settings you recommended; adaware caught a couple more things, but i still have the BIG problem of internet explorer not working.)

*****
So, that 2nd log -- posted where it's supposed to be -- is the one to be looking at. (sorry :( ... I never was good at following directions...
 :rose: 

*****
FYI - i explorer has been buggy on me for maybe 1 year+ ...this was mainly a trouble when i used it with symantec firewall, the problems weren't as bad using the XP firewall.

Lately, everything went crazy, tho -- used to be that some links wouldn't work -- now i can't use ie AT ALL (i'm on opera right now)

****
THANKS!
 :sos:

Looks like Normmork found your log in the other forum and there's a discussion going on browsers in another.  I'm sure things will get better. (Ah, but it will help if you follow Normmork's directions.  :lol: )
