Samker, are you there?
Friend I need your wisdom again. You helped me once before(about 2 months ago) and I need your help again.
My internet explorer-7 has stopped working on it's startup. Instead of going to http://Http://google.com(my default), it tries to go to "http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=76277" or "http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=69157" where I get a "this page cannot be displayed" notice. I have gone into tools and reset my search program as google, but this fwlink thing keeps poping up. In order for me to get out I have to manually type in the google address each time I start internet explorer. I have read about a virus called fwlnk.exe. Could this be a form of it?
Once I here from you I will download hijackthis and send the log.
Thank you samker

Hi again Cobaltazule,

Don't worry we will fix this also.  

Now please Scan your PC with:

- Kaspersky Online Scan: http://scforum.info/index.php/topic,734.0.html

- HijackThis: I think that you still have installed them? If you don't: search forum, download again and run.

After all that provide us both logs here (in your next reply)!

Regards,

Samker

I hope this helps. The kASPERSKY antispyware is still running.  BUT I think it fixed something. My Internet Explorer is kinda working better. Now it is doing something different. as if it was brand new. Not all fixed, just a little. After work when I get a chance to look at it I'll repost and let you know. By the way Kaspersky is VERY slow. It has been scanning now for 6 hours and found nothing so far. Again, thank you my friend.

Samker, I uninstalled Kaspersky.Not only was the program a waste of time,it detected nothing and was still runing a scan after 9 hours. I think I will reinstall ny Norton 360 which I took out to run your program. I am genuinely surprised. Always before you have given good advice. Kaspersky is garbage and I cannot recomend it. It is too slow and misses infections others catch. For example, I know I have a Trojan(forgot the name). Norton advises that to take it out would disable my browser so I leave it in. Norton says it is "low risk", yet kaspersky dosent even see it and I have downloaded all updates.
 My friend I think you guessed wrong on this program. Is there anything else I can supply you with?
your friend

Hi Robert and nice to meet you,

as I think (because of that I was send you PM) you make mistake because you don't understand my instruction!

You don't need to reinstall Norton, in my first post I give you link to Kaspersky Online Scan. Like the name said it work Online like Trend Micro House Call (I think that you already try them) and also have good log.

Now install again Norton and make any other online scan which we provide here (Symantec, McAfee, BitDefender ...) we need log from them to exclude possibility of some other infection.

Until that we will here analyze HJT log and give you some solutions.

Don't worry we will resolve this in short time.

Regards,

Samker

P.S.
In the future, every time when you have any doubts first ask because every mistake can crash your PC, especially working with HJT.

Hi Robert,

I'm just finish (first) checking of your HJT log.

It's look like most problems came from "NetZero". As I know:
Quote
NetZero is a nationwide Internet Service Provider, available in more than 8,000 cities across North America. NetZero offers unlimited paid service and a Free ISP.

Did you use theirs service for Internet Acces? Please provide us information about that so we know did you need this service anymore.

Of course we also need (unless two) logs & results of some Online AntiVirus Scans (Symantec, McAfee, Bitdefender, Trend Micro ... just choose, you also have all direct links inside of our Help Center).

Before all that: Uninstall Kaspersky AntiVirus & eTrust Internet Security Suite, after that install again your Norton.

Try to provide all information as soon as possible.

Samker

 Ok.
 I will do as you ask and get it to you tonight.
I did run the Kaspersky on-line, but it found nothing wrong. I am confused about the log from that program. I did not see one available to send. I will look again.
 Also,yes netzero is my internet provider. It is a dail-up account and very slow but it is all that is available to me at this time. I really hope it is not the problem.That would not be good.
 Have you ever heard of this address that keeps poping up on my IE-7..."http://go.micrisoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=76277 " ?  I have no idea what it is. I could'nt find it on the log.
 Anyway, I will get that to you as soon as possible.
regards
    Robert

Just select all scan report, copy and paste in your next reply (Like you do with HJT logs).

No, that isn't problem. I saw that, and that is one reason why you have "infection" at your system since they install their "spyware - adware" for advertising in exchange for free service.

This look like some "affiliate link ID", who know maybe this is another scam (micrisoft - microsoft). I'll later investigate this better.

Now, please provide us reports did Online AntiViruses find anything infected and new HJT (make log after uninstaling eTrust Internet Security Suite with eTrust PestPatrol Anti-Spyware and Kaspersky AV).

I'll wait your reply.

Samker
