hijacker - secure32

  User-C5CE72DE-020B-4DD8-A95855D47F731F00 14:37 01 Jan 2006

My home page on my XP system has been hijacked by something called Secure32 which purports to be a spyware detector. I can't get rid of it with AVG, Spybot or AdAware. Can any forum member please tell me what I can do?

Many thanks.

Run HJT click here and post a log on the Malware Removal forum click here

Thanks VoG but I still have a problem. 'Hijackthis' won't remove the hijacked references automatically, no matter how many times I tick the boxes and press the 'fix' button.

So, I thought I'd remove the hikack from the register manually based on the log read-out. The problem is that when I follow the references, when I get to Explorer/Main in HKCU and HKLM I don't have 'default' or start page' and therefore can't continue. In HKCU I have 'feature control' and in HKLM 'error thresholds' 'feature control' and 'URL templates'.

Can you tell me how to access the hijack references please?

Many thanks.

I didn't mean for you to try to fix this yourself. HJT lists many processes that are essential to the running of your PC.

If you just scan with HJT and post the log at Malware Removal forum, their experts will tell you exactly what to do.
