    [​IMG] Download HijackThis 1.99.1

    [​IMG] Unzip the hijackthis.exe file to a folder you create named C:\Program Files\HJT

    [​IMG] Do NOT run Hijack This from the Desktop, a temp folder, or a sub-folder of C:\Documents and Settings, or choose to run it directly from the ZIP file as your backups will not be safely stored.

    [​IMG]Before running HijackThis: You must close each of the following:your web browser, e-mail client, instant messenger, and programs like notepad, wordpad, MS Word etc. And any other unnecessary running programs.

    [​IMG]Run HijackThis and save your log file.

    [​IMG] Post your log as an ATTACHMENT to your next post. (Do NOT copy/paste the log into your post as it will be removed).

    Download Pocket KillBox
    (Don't run it yet)

    Please look in Add or Remove Programs for the following and Uninstall them if found:

    Microsoft Antispyware
    (Uninstall this because it will block parts of this fix)


    Please boot into Safe Mode with the Viewing of Hidden Files & Folders Enabled


    Now scan with HijackThis and Check the Boxes for the following:

    Make sure All Browser Windows are Closed when you Click FIX.

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {549B5CA7-4A86-11D7-A4DF-000874180BB3} - (no file)
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {961EE06B-74FF-040E-DE9F-7582C86D7CB4} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\bqdiaiwn.dll (file missing)
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {FDD3B846-8D59-4ffb-8758-209B6AD74ACC} - (no file)

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NI.UWFX5LP_0001_0802] "C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files\UWFX5LP_0001_0802NetInstaller.exe"/BEFOREINSTALL
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Oevs] C:\WINDOWS\system32\??anregw.exe
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Cpue] C:\Program Files\sswp\cruu.exe

    O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {85d1f590-48f4-11d9-9669-0800200c9a66} - %windir%\bdoscandel.exe (file missing)
    O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Uninstall BitDefender Online Scanner v8 - {85d1f590-48f4-11d9-9669-0800200c9a66} - %windir%\bdoscandel.exe (file missing)

    O23 - Service: CWShredder Service - Unknown owner - C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\K92RWXIN\CWShredder[1].exe (file missing)

    Again, make sure All Browser Windows are Closed when you Click FIX.


    NOW:
    Navigate to and DELETE the following if they should remain:

    C:\Program Files\sswp ←–– Delete this whole folder if it exist!

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\??anregw.exe
    (You will need to manually search for this file, the ? represents an unprintable character so it will be at the bottom of the list. Once located right click and delete it)


    Locate PocketKillbox
    (Procede with this step even if they do not show in blue)

    Now, Copy and Paste C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files\UWFX5LP_0001_0802NetInstaller.exe into the box – If it exists, it will show up in Blue. Check the option to Delete on Reboot and Click the Red X and Yes to the confirmation message. A message will ask if you want to reboot now – Click YES and allow your PC to reboot.
    • If you get an error message about Pending Operations, just reboot your computer manually.
    After you complete the above, reboot and attach a fresh HJT log. Also let me know how things are running.

    almost everything went ok but,

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Oevs] C:\WINDOWS\system32\??anregw.exe
    and
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Cpue] C:\Program Files\sswp\cruu.exe
    didn't show up in the safe mode scan.

    also I deleted C:\Program Files\sswp i couldn't find C:\WINDOWS\system32\??anregw.exe

    Please make sure System Restore is OFF and the Viewing of Hidden Files & Folders is Enabled as per the tutorial.

    Now, look in Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del) for the following running processes and, if you see any of them, try to END them:

    ??anregw.exe

    Now scan with HijackThis and Check the Boxes for the following:

    Make sure All Browser Windows are Closed when you Click FIX.

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Oevs] C:\WINDOWS\system32\??anregw.exe
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Cpue] C:\Program Files\sswp\cruu.exe

    Again, make sure All Browser Windows are Closed when you Click FIX.

    NOW:
    Please boot into Safe Mode with the Viewing of Hidden Files & Folders Enabled and navigate to and DELETE the following if they should remain:

    C:\Program Files\sswp ←–– Delete this whole folder if it exist!

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\??anregw.exe (You will need to manually search for this file, the ? represents an unprintable character so it will be at the bottom of the list. Once located right click and delete it)

    NEXT:
    Run CCleaner to clean up cookies and temp files.

    Then, as an added precaution, Go to Start > Run and type: cleanmgr and then click OK. Make sure the boxes for these are checked:
    Temporary Files
    Temporary Internet Files
    Recycle Bin


    And Click OK.


    Reboot to Normal Windows , Scan with HijackThis and attach the new log.
