Help! -> (http://%6e%6b%76%64%2e%75%73/)

By SysEngineer ·
Every time I start IE this (http://%6e%6b%76%64%2e%75%73/) appears in the browser and when I type a URL such as www.google.com the above address puts itself automatically in front of the URL. I have tried spy-bot, ad-ware, & cwshredder and I can still not get rid of this problem. I have even made registry to delete this info but as soon as I go back into the registry its there again...!

Sounds like you have a trojan horse.

I got this once and it was a tool search of all things. I tried all you did and ended up with the same thing. Even went the registry route. Try all the things listed above and goodluck! I eventually got rid of it by simply restoring a backup prior to it's appearance. You do back up?? If you have XP, try a previous system restore. Hope this works for you and goodluck.

At the bottom of the page, on that site is a link that says "if problem click here" There is a tool and instructions to remove this link.

there is uninstaller on this page, and it works.
This is sad, but i think that there is no other way. first i have few domains in hosts.deny list and it was ok, i think some firewall is good idea or blocking this type of trojans :]

It is not a virus all though it should be calssified as one. It is Spyware. Get a few tools from the web if you can, if not then use a seperate machine to get them. Get Ad-Aware and the latest refrence files. Get SpySweeper, the tiral of that works great. Also do a search for CWSshreder and HiJackThis. When scanning with Ad-aware make sure you do a custom scan, and select the hard drive, and all of the "Memroy & Registy" options. Once that is done scan the machine, dont forget to update or copy the refrence file into the ad-aware directory. Make sure CWSshreder is the latest version 1.5.9 or later. I run into this stuff all the time, also make sure you kill explorer.exe when running cwsshreder, it is also good to do when using ad-aware and spysweeper. This trick only works on 2k/xp. Hopefully those tricks will help remove that pesky bug.
