I know what Fixwareout.exe is and the symptom of wareout infection, wareout entries show up in hijackthis log, and Blacklight. The most common symptom is google bogus results and redirection of searches.

Just show us your hijackthis log, or give us the symptoms that you are experiencing and we can tell you if you do have 'wareout" infection.

No need to use fixwareout if you're not infected.

Please download HijackThis 1.99.1
http://www.cyberanswers.org/forum/uploads/HijackThis1991.exe
Open Hijackthis, click "Do a system scan and save a logfile" don't fix anything yet.
Notepad will also open, copy its contents and paste it to either these sites:
http://www.rafb.net/paste/
then at the bottom left corner click "paste"
Copy the address/url and post it here:

Or paste the log at --> http://www.hijackthis.de/ 
and click "Analyse", click "Save".  Post the link to the saved list here.

hi, as  rpggamergirl mentioned, since I don't think that I have a hijack browser,
I haven't yet installed fixwareout.
I just want to know, if  I have to remove some of the application mentioned in the link above.


* I increased the score to 500 point, since I think it worth the question.


thanks,

Shahar,

I don't see any malware entries in your hijackthis log. All the entries there are legit entries, so long as those 017 entries are part of your domain.

If you are not experiencing any redirections/hijacks then it doesn't look like you have wareout infection. Wareout entries normally would show up in the log as well as having the symptoms.

If you know those 017 entries as being part of your domain, then your hijackthis log is clean. Some malware also does not show up in the log, they are able to hide from hijackthis scan, are you having any problems?

You can also fix some of the 04 entries to speed up your startup if you like, fixing them does not harm the programs and does not affect your pc.

The crucial legit entries that you shouldn't fix are those lines starting from 020 up to 023.
All the other entries are safe to fix.
The only 04 entries(startup programs) I have in mine is my antivirus, my firewall, and my Tea timer.

Thanks a lot for your information,
As I mention before I don't have a hijack browser,
but your interpretation ironed out the difficulties.

Thanks again,
