Sex dialer keeps loading when I start IE

  nicgrant 21:24 28 Jun 2004

Can someone help me, please
Every time I start Explorer, a sex dialer C:\WINDOWS\System32\IEsp.mht changes my home page with what looks like a search site. If I type anything in the search window, it redials to a premium rate number & takes me to a sex site. Does anyone know how I can get rid of this.
I have run Spybot & Ad Aware to no avail.
Also loaded StartPage Guard, but it overrides this.
Help, Please....

Shutdown Internet-Explorer, go to your Task manager and kill all processes named IEXPLORE.EXE

Delete this Files:


WINNT = Your System-Root - can be "Windows" too

Delete The following Registry Keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion?\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{0B519E07-7824-4adc-8890-93D5EABBF285}

Delete the Value {0B519E07-7824-4adc-8890-93D5EABBF285} from HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ADODB.Command\CLSID
I Hope I could help you but noo guarantees

there is lots of info on this but unfortunatly i cannot find anything solid sorry.

is adaware and spybot all up to date and is your AV software also up to date? try a trojan remover like the cleaner click here and you might as well also try cwshreadder click here

disconnect from the phone line and disable system restore and run everything again maybe.
